Your dream 8-days Tanzania Budget safari begin after breakfast. Then set out to Lake Manyara National Park. This relatively small but diverse park, 120km west of Arusha, is so named for a shallow Salt Lake that covers a large area of the park’s surface area. Flooding and drying with the seasons, this soda lake is home to thousands of flamingos with another 500 bird species represented in the park.
After an extensive game drive through the park, we head toward your campsite, carefully selected by us, where we can dine, rest and relax in pleasant surroundings.
After breakfast, we set out for the fertile highlands where wheat, coffee and corn are grown by the local people. Passing through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, we have the opportunity to see the breath-taking Ngorongoro Crater before traveling onwards to the Serengeti National Park, where we will reach by midday. The Serengeti National Park, the largest park in Tanzania, is a land of diverse landscapes and habitats such as grassy plains, swamps, lakes, savannah, and mountains.
After our extensive game drive, we head for your campsite where we can unwind and have our dinner before relaxing by a fire on the endless plain under an endless African sky.
This entire day is set aside for further game drives in the park. The Serengeti is the habitat for an abundance of wildlife, such as impala, buffalo, crocodile, and hippo, but is more well-known for its great migrating herds of zebra and wildebeest. The animals’ trek is determined by the rainfall and varies from year to year. Apart from the migrating herds, we may have the chance to spot predators such as leopard, cheetah, and lion, ever and always lurking close by. With our full day on the plains accomplished, we return to our campsite for a well-deserved rest, encased in our comfortable sleeping bags, dreaming of wild cats!
This will be our final full day spent in the Serengeti, the “Endless Plain”, truly one of the most spectacular places on earth. We continue to enjoy the wide range of animals and birds. By now, you will be an expert! Make sure you ask your guide to take you to the locations that you most desire. We spend our last night sleeping out on the plain, keeping our eyes peeled for the passing wildlife which, rest assured, has little interest in us. Tomorrow, we spend the night on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater.
After an early breakfast, we head out for another game drive in the Serengeti. We may be afforded the opportunity to spot the “Big Five again” – lion, elephant, buffalo and leopard – before embarking on our journey to the Ngorongoro Crater Rim. The animals roam freely through the unfenced reserves, offering us an uninterrupted game viewing experience. Arriving at the edge of the crater, we have our first glimpse of what awaits us the following day – glistening streams, open grassland and a myriad of animals. We spend the night at the Simba Campsite directly on the crater’s edge, with the orange glow of sunset surrounding us as we drift off to sleep.
Early risers are rewarded with breath-taking views of the rising sun over the crater’s edge. After a hearty breakfast, we drive down the adventurous track into the crater. This UNESCO World Heritage Site, formed millions of years ago in the massive explosion of a volcano, is 610 meters deep and covers roughly around 260 square kilometres. With a little luck, we may catch a glimpse of the endangered black rhino through the grass. After lunch, we ascend the steep walls of the crater and head onward to Karatu. Dinner awaits at the Campsite in pretty and relaxing surroundings, where our tents await to harbour our ease and dreams of wild cats!
After breakfast, we drive to our final destination on this epic safari – Tarangire National Park. Tarangire is well-known for its large elephant herds, seasonal swamps, savannah, and the Tarangire River which winds its way through the park, inviting the wildlife to drink her soothing waters. From the open roof of our state-of-the-art safari truck, we experience the landscape as we seek sightings of the many animals including zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, elephant and giraffe.
After extensive game drives through the park, with our adventure coming to its close, we head back to Arusha, full of images of the African wild. This mark end of our 8-days Tanzania Budget safari package.
