The 9-day Tanzania camping Northern safari Start today. Drive to Arusha National Park covers Mount Meru, a prominent volcano with an elevation of 4566 m, in the Arusha Region of north eastern Tanzania. The park is small but varied with spectacular landscapes in three distinct areas. In the west, the Meru Crater funnels the Jekukumia River; the peak of Mount Meru lies on its rim. Ngurdoto Crater in the south-east is grassland. The shallow alkaline Momella Lakes in the north-east have varying algal colours and are known for their wading birds.
After breakfast, we will be met at our accommodation by our safari guide. We then set out for 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. On our exploration of the park, we will see monkey, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, elephant, and, with some luck, lion lounging in the trees. The park is known for its diverse landscapes – not only open grassy plains, but also primate-filled woodlands and baobab-dotted cliffs. 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 Ngorongoro Conservation Area, we have the opportunity to see the breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater before traveling onwards to the Serengeti National Park, which we will reach by midday. Here, the great wildebeest and zebra migration makes its circuitous journey along with a range of other animals and, depending on the season, we may have the opportunity to witness thousands of animals on their search for food and water. After our extensive game drive, we head for your campsite where we can unwind and have our dinner.
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.
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. 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.
Arriving at the edge of the crater, we have our first glimpse of what awaits us the following day. Dinner and Overnight at the lodge.
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” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino 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. 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.
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. Due to its dense animal population of approximately 25,000 ungulates, the crater offers the best game viewing of all the parks in Tanzania. In a matter of minutes, we will see wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, elephant, and some of the more than 500 bird species that inhabit the crater. After lunch, we ascend the steep walls of the crater and head onward to our lodgings in Karatu. Dinner awaits at the Campsite (or alternatively Campsite
Today is the end of our 9-day Tanzania camping Northern safari package. After breakfast, we drive to 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, 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
