Example Trip to customize
Welcome To Arusha!
After breakfast, you'll depart from your Arusha or Moshi accommodations and drive to the park. Your visit to Arusha National Park is a flexible one, as you'll have three choices as to how you'd like to experience the park.
You can embark on a half-day or full-day game drive through the park. Your drive will bring you past landmarks such as the Momella Lakes and Ngurdoto Crater - sometimes known as "Little Ngorongoro."
An alternative, available at extra cost: you'll trade the car for a canoe as you take a guided canoe safari out on the Momella Lakes to see bushbuck, giraffes, hippos, and buffalo.
You can also choose to stretch your legs with a guided walking safari through the park. You will also have a chance to observe more than 400 bird species. You'll return to Arusha in the late afternoon.
Discover Tarangire National Park
Depart from Arusha after breakfast for the drive to Tarangire National Park. Along the way, you'll pass bustling Masai villages and the vast, open plains that have become synonymous with images of Africa.
Once you've entered Tarangire, you'll begin your game drive across a rich vista of endless golden savannah that surrounds the Tarangire River. A picnic lunch with a view of the river is a great way to take it all in, but you'll have to keep on your toes as the local monkey population does its best to separate you from your lunch!
If you're particularly lucky, you might even see endangered animals such as the Greater Kudu or the Fringe-Eared Oryx. After your day's drive is done, you'll retire to your accommodation for the evening.
Visit Lake Manyara National Park
After breakfast, you'll enter Lake Manyara National Park. This park is truly a photographer's paradise and offers some of the best game viewing in the world. You can expect to see many of Africa's most well-known animals, with the tree-climbing lions a particular treat.
These proud predators lounge in acacia trees practically begging to be photographed. Bird-watchers will find Lake Manyara is an absolute delight, with a huge variety of birds on display in the park.
Even the novice can expect to be amazed by large flamingo flocks, circling birds of prey, and the brightly coloured lilac breasted roller.
Marvel at the Lives of the Hadzabe Bushmen
You'll be up before breakfast today, as you'll be joining the Hadzabe bushmen for the opportunity to hunt for your own food! One of the last true bushman tribes in Africa, the Hadzabe, live very much as they always have despite the rapid development of Tanzania.
The local hunters will prepare a demonstration of hunting techniques just for us. After a late breakfast, you'll have the opportunity to take a drive around Lake Eyasi. While this shallow soda lake is not home to the same variety of wildlife you'll find in a national park, you'll have the chance to spot a variety of bird and mammal life. You'll also have time to meet with the Datoga people. Mostly farmers and cattle breeders, these fascinating people offer another perspective into tribal life in Tanzania.
Once your day's activities have been complete, make your way to Karatu Town or Lake Manyara.

Travel to the Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast, you'll depart for Ngorongoro Crater; considered by some to be the 8th Wonder of the World. When you get your first glimpse of this vast, verdant caldera from the panoramic viewpoint, you'll soon understand why it has earned such a lofty reputation.
Home to over 120 species of mammals including the fabled Big Five, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is one of the most sought after safari destinations in the world. It's a particularly good place to see the endangered black rhinoceros.
From the comfort of your open-top vehicle, you'll be able to observe and photograph some of Africa's most recognizable faces. The crater is home to a large number of predators including lions, leopards, cheetahs, jackals, and hyenas, as well as a large population of wildebeest, zebras, antelope, Cape buffalo, and more.
Simba A Campsite
Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge
Explore the Empakai Area
Situated in the Ngorongoro Crater region of Northern Tanzania, Simba Campsite A is a large public camping ground. The campsite is located on the crater rim and offers fantastic views of the area, as well as an excellent point from which to spot bush pigs.
Featuring shower and lavatory facilities as well as a cooking area and dining area, the campsite is a convenient stopping point on the way to the Serengeti.
You can see amazing wildlife here today as you explore the region!
Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge
Stop by Scenic Serengeti National Park
You'll start your day with an early breakfast before heading out for your adventure at Empakai Crater. Hiking through forested hills that come to some 300 meters above the crater floor, you'll be rewarded with an absolutely stunning view when you reach the top.
Empakai Crater offers unparalleled views of Ol Doinyo Lengai, a still active volcano. There's also the opportunity to see Lake Natron, the Great Rift Valley, and even distant Mount Kilimanjaro on a clear day. You'll then trek down into the crater itself towards the shores of Empakai Lake, where you'll see animals such as bushbucks, buffaloes, waterbucks, elands, and countless species of bird.
Taking a picnic within the park offers you the chance to soak in its utter tranquility before you hike back to the car for your return journey to Karatu Town or the crater rim.
Ole Serai Turner Springs
See the Best of the Serengeti
You will start your day early by getting up before dawn to embark on a sunrise game drive. Accompanied by the melodic singing of the birds, you'll spend your morning searching for leopards and lions hunting for their morning meal and spying the contrastingly calm hippos returning to their watery homes with their families.
You will return to your accommodation for a late and leisurely breakfast before continuing the game drive. Your driver will select the best possible route based upon the time of year and the kind of animals you'd like to see, catering your day so that your opportunities to see the Serengeti's diverse wildlife are maximized.
Dinner will be in the heart of Serengeti National Park according to the standard and the type of accommodation you have requested.
Spend Time at Amazing Lake Natron
You'll enjoy a leisurely morning game drive around Lake Natron and its surrounds. Known both for its unique volcanic landscape and the large flocks of brightly colored flamingos that call it home, Lake Natron's isolation also means that you have a good chance of having the area to yourself.
You can expect to see wildlife such as zebra, wildebeest, oryx, ostriches, kudu, gerenuk, and jackals in addition to the lake's resident flamingos. But it is the area's distinct mix of ravines, craters, and lakes that make it such a unique location.
You'll want an early night tonight, as you'll be up in the wee hours to begin your Ol Doinyo Lengai climb.
Lake Natrions Worlds View Campsite
Moivaro Lake Natron
Lake Natron Tented Camp
One of the few volcanoes in the world to emit sodium carbonate and potassium, still-active Ol Doinyo Lengai is a strikingly beautiful volcano that photographers and hikers alike love.
Due to the intense heat the volcano emits, it can only be climbed at night when the air is cooler, so we will depart at around 3 or 4 am to begin our ascent. As the only active volcano in East Africa, climbing Ol Doinyo Lengai is an invigorating experience that rewards successful climbers with an astounding view of the surrounding lands and distant Lake Natron.
Returning to camp around lunchtime, you will dine before returning to Arusha. After this, you can continue your onward adventure. Safe travels, and visit again soon!
