Tanzania Adventure Safari

With its sweeping landscapes, abundant wildlife and diverse ethnicity, is it any wonder Mount Kilimanjaro chose to rise in Tanzania?

Experience the best Tanzania has to offer with your own local guide and private 4×4 vehicles. Set out each day in search of big cats, wondrous giraffes and playful colobus monkeys. Trek through some of the country’s greatest National Parks for a chance to encounter wildebeests, warthogs, baboons, hippos and elephants. And, when you’re craving a little human connection, meet the Datoga and Barbaig tribesmen who still forge spears and jewelry from local silver. In the evenings, relax in charming tented camps that offer intimate connections to the natural world around you and gaze at a night sky you never knew existed.

You may notice your heart start to race as giraffes glide across honey-colored landscapes in between grazing zebra herds on your guided walking safari through Arusha National Park. Keep your eyes open for baboons and flamingos as your explore Manyara National Park, then head to The Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest inactive, intact, and unfilled volcanic caldera which boasts over 20,000 mammal species for a chance to glimpse some of the only remaining black rhinos in the world. Prepare to be awed as you roam the famous plains of the Serengeti; considered by many to be the best location for game viewing on the continent. The park is home to the largest population of lions and giraffes in all of Africa as well as the Big 5: buffalos, elephants, rhinoceros, leopards and lions. Your adventure may have to come to an end, but the memories you make will last a lifetime.

Your guide will drive you from Manyara to the Serengeti. You will drive along the ridge of Ngorongoro Crater and down into the valley of Serengeti. You can stop along the way in several areas for some brief game watching before, or inside, the wild Serengeti plains. This trip usually takes between 6 to 7 hours, but expect longer drve times during the rainy seasons.

The massive Olduvai Gorge or Oldupai Gorge is often referred to as “The Cradle of Mankind.”  Beginning in the eastern Serengeti plains, the gorge is roughly some 48 kilometers long.  Resulting from millions of years of natural erosion, this gorge boasts a steep-sided ravine that cuts and stretches its way through the Great Rift Valley along eastern Africa.  The gorge is named after a commonly used plant by the Masai people with the scientific name of Sansevieria-Ehrenbergii, or Oldupai for short.

This morning’s African adventure begins with an exploratory game drive through Tanzania’s oldest and most recognized National Park, the Serengeti.  This location offers the most expansive game viewing in Tanzania. From predators to prey, great herds of grazing herbivores to tactically cunning packs of carnivores, life on the plains of the Serengeti can best be defined as a complete “circle of life.”  A photographic dream unfolds before your eyes as giraffes and elephants feast on tasty shrubbery, whilst impalas, gazelles and buffalos dance carefully through the plains as to not become the latest meal for on-looking lions, cheetahs and hyenas.

Spend the day taking in the spectacle of the famous wildebeest migration.  This annual migration through the Serengeti and Masai Mara is one of the safari highlights of Africa.  The wildebeest migration moves in a basic clockwise direction throughout the year in the Serengeti eco-system and moves north into the Masai Mara in Kenya from June/July through to Sep/October.  Sightings cannot be guaranteed as the herds move according to the availability of food sources and migration movements can be erratic. The herds are accompanied by zebras and Thomson’s gazelles and are stealthily hunted by local predators such as leopards, lions and hyenas.

Accommodation: Lemala Ewanjan


This African journey continues as you board a privately driven vehicle, accompanied by a local tracker-guide for your visit to the overwhelming large Ngorongoro Conversation Area.  You’ll depart the Serengeti National Park grounds at a somewhat slower pace as to get in some more game-viewing. At the Serengeti Welcome Centre you’ll have an opportunity to marvel at a panoramic view of the surrounding area from the lookout point.  A stop for a picturesque picnic is also scheduled during this journey.  Upon your arrival into the conservation area, you’ll head towards your overnight accommodation whilst taking in the overwhelming size of the Ngorongoro Crater.  The approximate travel time may vary between 5 to 6 hours depending on weather conditions and the number of stops you’ve made along the way.  During the heavy rainy season, longer travel times should be expected.

Just inside the Ngorongoro conservation area, a majestic waterfall beckons travellers to enjoy a light hike through the forest highlands. Along the way, experience the ‘elephant caves’: cave-like structures created by elephants digging up the earth to ingest the vitamin-rich soil. This soil also attracts other large animals like Buffalo, Bushbuck, Waterbuck, and Baboons.

Accommodation: Kitela Lodge

The Kitela Lodge is a small, exclusive lodge situated on top of a valley overlooking a coffee plantation, the Eastern wall of the Ngorongoro crater, and a beautiful waterfall. Fffering guests a relaxing, quiet atmosphere surrounded by beautiful gardens, the Lodge consists of twenty spacious suites in cottages built in the style of an old colonial farm. Located on site is a heated swimming pool and soothing spa.


Explore one of the most recognized wildlife conservation areas in Tanzania today.  Depart your camp or lodge in a privately driven vehicle, along with a local expert guide, for an approximately 20 to 30 minute drive towards the Ngorongoro Park Gate.  It will then take you another 20 minutes to reach the crater rim itself.   The Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest inactive, intact, and unfilled volcanic caldera.  This geological masterpiece was formed as a result of an extremely large volcanic explosion which caused the volcano to collapse in on itself, thus creating a crater.  The crater is roughly 20 kilometers wide and some 2000 feet deep, making the trip from crater floor to rim around 45 minutes by 4×4.  The extremely fertile crater floor is the reason why there is such a highly concentrated amount of wildlife here.  Over 20000 mammals call the crater home, including some of the only remaining black rhinos in the world.  The crater floor also boasts one of the highest carnivore densities in the world including large prides of lions, packs of hyenas and solitary predators like cheetahs and jackals.  A keen eye and expertly recommended search patterns from your guide, may help you spot some of the less common species like leopards, servals, and bat-eared foxes.

You are provided with a personalized, experienced tracker-guide and private transportation today whilst exploring around the Ngorongoro National Park grounds.
