Itinerary: 6 Day / 5 Night Safari in Tanzania
TOUR REF: SSNT - Beads Africa
Discover the highlights of Tanzania with a fascinating exploration of the legendary plains of the Serengeti, the dramatic landscapes of Lake Manyara and the enthralling views of the Ngorongoro Crater. Marvel at the abundant wildlife, from the awe-inspiring migrations of wildebeest and zebra in the Serengeti to the dense and varied wildlife to be viewed on the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater. Between game drives, visit the Oldupai Gorge, known as the Cradle of Mankind, for a glimpse into Tanzania’s ancient history.
Day 1: Arusha
On arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will be met by a member of the Sunny Safari team who will take you to your hotel in Arusha, known as the safari capital of Tanzania. Dinner.
Day 2: Lake Manyara:
After breakfast, you set off in one of our comfortable safari vehicles to Lake Manyara, a scenic National Park at the base of the Rift Valley escarpment, with forest, lake, and plains providing a very varied eco-system supporting diverse wildlife, including elephants and tree-climbing lions. Lunch on arrival is followed by a full game drive, forest, and lakeshore with the entrancing sight of masses of water birds, before returning to Lodge, where we will be staying one night, for a delicious dinner.
Day 3 & 4: Serengeti
After breakfast we depart for the Serengeti, visiting Olduvai Gorge en route. Known as the Cradle of Mankind, Oldupai Gorge is a fascinating archaeological site discovered in the 1930's with important evidence of pre-historic man. Experience an afternoon game drive on arrival in the Serengeti, where we spend two nights at a selected Serengeti Lodge. The Serengeti is famed for its annual great migration of wildebeest, an impressive sight as they thunder across the plains, with attendant herds of zebra and gazelles. You'll see the resident big cat predators and smaller wildlife too. The following day we make the most of this adventure with a full day game drive and a picnic lunch, before returning to the Lodge for another memorable meal and perhaps star-gazing around a campfire.
Day 5 & 6: Ngorongoro
Rise early for an exciting morning game drive in the Serengeti with a picnic breakfast at a scenic spot. After lunch, we set off for the
Ngorongoro Rim, with a further gamedrive en route as we pass through more of the Serengeti. At Ngorongoro, we'll be spending one night at a selected Ngorongoro Lodge. A fascinating geological feature and one of Africa's Seven Natural Wonders, Ngorongoro is a huge caldera formed by the collapse of an ancient volcano crater. Its fertile soil and permanent water support a dense population of wildlife, offering a rich safari experience. The next morning we descend onto the Crater floor for a fascinating game drive full of animal sightings. After lunch, we ascend to the rim to enjoy the panoramic views, before departing for Arusha and the end of our safari journey.
