Day 1: Arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport – Arusha

We welcome you at Kilimanjaro International Airport and warmly welcome you to Tanzania. We will return to your hotel in Arusha. There we will do a briefing about your safari, which will then start the next day.


Accommodation: Arusha Serena Hotel Resort & Spa

Day 2: Arusha – Arusha National Park – Arusha

After a leisurely breakfast, visit Arusha National Park. With a size of 137 km 2 it lies between Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru, which also forms the boundary of the park. With heights between 1,500 m at Lake Momella and the summit of Mount Meru at 4,565 m, this mountain park includes the various levels of vegetation from tropical semi-arid to high alpine. The flora and fauna are correspondingly diverse. The wildlife consists of a variety of herbivores, predators and primates such as the black and white colobus monkey, baboons, giraffes, buffalo, hippopotamus, leopard, hyenas and a large variety of antelope species. There are no lions in the park, but with a bit of luck you will see a leopard!

After arriving at the park, you will start a 2-hour bush walk . An experienced ranger will accompany you to the beautiful Tulusia waterfall.

Arusha National Park is famous for its 400 species of birds that ornithologists can observe, especially at the Momella Lakes. On a clear day you have a fascinating view of Mount Kilimanjaro from almost everywhere in the park. You will return to your accommodation in the late afternoon. In the evening we will have an African dinner together. The food is called “nyama ya kuchoma” which means grilled meat. Different types of meat and chicken are grilled and served with french fries, grilled bananas and salad. Everyone eats from a large platter with their hands. It tastes really good, you will see. We will then bring you back to your lodge.

Day 3: Arusha – Tarangire National Park

After breakfast you start with packed lunches in the Tarangire National Park. The journey takes about 2.5 hours. As soon as you have passed the Parkgate, the game drives begin.

Tarangire offers you a wonderful, wide panorama of open acacia forests with grass savannahs and large herds of elephants. Especially in the dry season from July to October, the Tarangire River attracts many elephants to its banks, who want to quench their thirst there. Established in 1970 from former hunting grounds, Tarangire National Park is home to the largest population of wild animals outside of the Serengeti ecosystem. With around 2,600 km 2it is one of the five largest parks in Tanzania and offers a “set table” for predators all year round. One of its peculiarities is the population of mainland antelopes, such as the stately tuft-eared billy goats and the graceful giraffe gazelles, which can be found here in large numbers. During the rainy season, most of the animals migrate far beyond the boundaries of the national park until the green plains have been devoured and the pulsing heart of the park, the Tarangire River, moves to return. The approximately 4,000 elephants remain behind, however, so that the Tarangire in northern Tanzania is also widely known as the “Elephant Park”.

You will arrive at your camp in the late afternoon for dinner and overnight.

Accommodation: Lake Burunge Tented Camp


Day 4: Tarangire National Park

After breakfast you will visit the national park again. Tarangire is divided into eight different vegetation zones, ranging from swamps to open grasslands to landscapes overgrown with acacias. Tarangire is home to more than 300 different species of birds. The area in the park is very spacious. The baobab trees grow in abundance and the “candles” of the candelabra trees fan out into the sky. The park has even more to offer bird lovers: screeching flocks of brightly colored blackheads and the less conspicuous red-tailed weavers and gray-and-white starlings – birds that only occur in the dry savannas of northern Tanzania. Another attraction are the large ratites with their bushy plumage, long thin necks and big googly eyes – the Maasai bouquets.

Accommodation: Lake Burunge Tented Camp

Day 5: Tarangire National Park – Lake Manyara National Park – Karatu

Today you leave the area around Tarangire National Park and continue to the neighboring Lake Manyara National Park. The national park is 330 km 2rather small. Not knowing that it is Lake Manyara, many television viewers and moviegoers have already made the acquaintance of the lake. The film scene from “Out of Africa”, in which Robert Redford and Meryl Streep flies through a flock of flamingos on a plane, was shot here. The slightly alkaline lake takes up two thirds of the entire park area, although its size varies depending on the season. During the dry season, between June and September, it is almost dry and animals can wade through it with ease. A different picture emerges during the rainy season in March or April: During this time the water level rises sharply. The brooks can become raging watercourses that are sometimes no longer passable. The Lake Manyara National Park is therefore an elephant hotspot, because huge herds flee from the rain-soaked black cotton soil of the Tarangire National Park. But it is astonishing what different living spaces can be found here. Hundreds of baboons are lounging on the side of the road, diademed monkeys do gymnastics quickly through the ancient mahogany trees, dainty bushbucks step cautiously out of the shadows and strange, large forest hornbills in the high canopy of leaves call out loud and jarring. In the late afternoon you will arrive at your lodge in Karatu, high up on the Great Rift Valley. dainty bushbucks step cautiously out of the shadows and strange, large forest hornbills in the high canopy of leaves call out loud and jarring. In the late afternoon you will arrive at your lodge in Karatu, high up on the Great Rift Valley. dainty bushbucks step cautiously out of the shadows and strange, large forest hornbills in the high canopy of leaves call out loud and jarring.

Day 6: Karatu – Serengeti National Park

After breakfast you leave Karatu and continue to Serengeti National Park. While your guide pays the entrance fees at the Ngorongoro Gate, you can view the exhibition about the Great Rift Valley (= the East African Rift Valley) and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in the next room:

The Great African Rift Valley is  around 6,000 km long from its northern end in Syria  to its southern end in  Mozambique . The  tectonic  activity that formed the Rift Valley weakened the  earth’s crust  along its borders. The area is therefore  volcanically  and  seismically  active. Volcanoes such as Mount Kilimanjaro,  Mount Elgon  and the  crater highlands developed . The  Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano is still active and is the only  carbonatite volcano in the world.

An important and interesting find was the Olduvai Gorge, called “Oldupai” in the local language. It is particularly considered to be the cradle of humanity. The fossilized remains of various animal species, which have been stored there for millions of years, are therefore now open in many places on the surface, including huge relatives of our today’s sheep and pigs. In 1911, the neurologist Wilhelm Krattwinkel found many fossil bones that could later be assigned to the three-toed primordial horse (Hipparion) in Berlin. Inspired by this find, Hans Reck visited the gorge in 1913 and discovered parts of a 20,000 year old skeleton of Homo sapiens. Unfortunately, the outbreak of World War I prevented further excavations.

It was not until 1959 that Mary Leakey discovered a massive skull called the “Zinjanthropus”. It was later renamed “Australopithecus boisei” after Charles Bois, who supported her work in Olduvai. These people had large skulls with massive teeth and their diet was vegetarian. The finds have been dated back over 1.75 million years.

You have lunch with you as a lunch package. Enter the Serengeti at Naabi Gate. Serengeti means “the endless land” in Kiswahili. You will get this impression when you walk on the stone cliffs at Naabi Gate and enjoy a breathtaking view of the Serengeti stretching in front of you and the “Ngorongoro Highlands” rise in the background.

You will arrive at your camp in the central Serengeti in the late afternoon.

Day 7: Serengeti National Park

After breakfast you start again with game drives.

The Serengeti is an absolute must for every Tanzania traveler, because it offers the greatest variety of wild animals in Africa. With a size of almost 15,000 km², the Serengeti National Park is the second largest park in Tanzania. It was founded in 1951 and is now a World Heritage Site, a biosphere reserve and one of the new seven wonders of the world in Africa.

The Serengeti-Mara ecosystem has likely been in operation for at least a million years, but the area was not settled by humans until the late 18th century. Since then, the Maasai nomadic people have lived here with their cattle. The name Serengeti is also derived from the Maasai language – the term “Siringet” means “the endless plains”.

And so the landscape is primarily characterized by endless expanses of grass, which are only occasionally interrupted by Kopjes – rocks around 2.5 billion years old. Herbivores such as blue wildebeest, Thomson’s gazelles, plains zebras and African buffalo find a true paradise here. But also around 3,800 lions, 350 cheetahs, 7,500 spotted hyenas, 12,000 giraffes and 11,000 elephants roam the savannas of the Serengeti.

All these animals are the epitome of the African wilderness, and yet the Serengeti National Park has an equally varied bird life to offer. And so you will be amazed what a concert of birds sounds when you start your safari in the early morning.

You will return to your camp in the late afternoon.

Accommodation: Sound of Silence Camp

Day 8: Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Crater – Karatu

After breakfast you leave the Serengeti and visit the Ngorongoro Crater. Several million years ago a volcano rose from the height of Mount Kilimanjaro at this point. Due to the tectonic movements of the rift valley, the cone collapsed, leaving behind a fantastic caldera, today’s Ngorongoro crater. The crater floor is about 1,700 meters above sea level and the side walls are between 400 and 600 meters high, so that the crater edge is about 2,300 meters. The diameter of the crater is between 17 and 21 kilometers. The area is now considered the 8th wonder of the world. The crater and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area cover a total of 8,300 km 2. Lush grazing grounds and the always available groundwater feed up to 30,000 animals at the same time. Due to the good conditions, there is hardly any migration of the animals. Mainly grass-eaters like wildebeest, eland antelopes, kongoni (hartebeest), zebras, gazelles, buffalo and warthogs live on the crater floor. But there are also lions, cheetahs and hyenas. With a lot of luck you can see one of the very rare rhinos. Hippos, elephants, baboons, waterbuck, reedbuck and bushbuck and green monkeys have their home in the moors and forests. You will have your picnic lunch on the crater floor near Lake Hippo. In the late afternoon you will arrive at your lodge in Karatu.

Arrival at Kisauni Airport – Stone Town

Upon arrival in Zanzibar, you will be picked up at Kisauni Airport and taken to your city hotel. The Dhow Palace Hotel is located in the middle of Stone Town. In the evening you can visit “Forodhani Gardens” on your own. Forodhani is a night market where various Zanzibari specialties are cooked in many food stalls. A wide variety of people meet there. The market has a magical atmosphere, also because it is right on the Indian Ocean! (B&B)

Accommodation: Dhow Palace Hotel

Day 10: Stone Town Tour – Spice Farm Visit – Beach Hotel

After breakfast you start on a guided Stone Town tour. You will spend half a day exploring the old town. Stone Town is a mixture of different cultures, languages ​​and architectural styles. In 2001 the city was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

In the afternoon you start on a spice tour. In 1818 the clove was introduced to Zanzibar under Said bin Sultan. Zanzibar became the seat of government of the Omani Empire. The fertile soils on the west coast offered ideal conditions for cultivation. In the 19th century the clove experienced a worldwide boom. Zanzibar rose to become the largest producer of this spice and at the same time was a hub for the trade in coconuts, ivory and slaves. Over time, other spices were introduced and grown in Zanzibar – including cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger. Zanzibar became known as the island of spices and it is said that seafarers were greeted by the scent of cloves when they entered the port of Zanzibar. You will then be taken to your beach hotel.

Safari Travel Guide

Tanzania Safari Parks and Wildlife

The status of Tanzania safari parks as a primary destination for wildlife explorers has been reflected in the expeditions of The National Geographic, The Discovery and The Animal Planet. Indeed, Northern Tanzanian parks are fantastic – Serengeti offers unique lion safaris and The Great Migration, Tarangire is famous for its fascinating elephant safaris, and Ngorongoro enjoys the reputation of a place with the highest density of wild animals. Lake Manyara with its flocks of pink flamingos and Mahali and Gombe parks with the largest population of chimpanzees are also must-have pieces to the collection of any avid traveller. Undoubtedly Tanzania is the best place for completing your full African wildlife safaris list.

Tanzania Tourism Safaris is always ready to turn your African dreams into reality. The fusion of technology and traditions of Tanzanian hospitality enables us to suit the fancies of everyone interested in Tanzania.

Best time for safari in Tanzania. Weather. Seasons

The best time for safaris in Tanzania depends on what your travel preferences are.

The period from June to October (also known as the “dry” season) is perfect for watching the Great Migration. Furthermore, this season is also excellent for safaris since the density of animals is the highest near the rivers and other sources of water. The number of mosquitoes is much lower than the usual one, and the weather is mostly sunny. The number of tourist vehicles in the parks is reasonable, though Ngorongoro and Seronera plains in Serengeti are usually the hotspots. Make sure to take warm clothes for the early mornings in June-August, when the temperatures may be low.

The “wet” season (or the “rainy” season) from November to May is ideal for those, who are eager to watch hunting scenes. Calves are born from January to February, and the predators are notably active during this time. The migration of birds is also at its peak at this time of the year, turning the National Parks into a paradise for ornithologists.

Furthermore, the vegetation is booming during the rainy season, and the Parks are amazingly green. Many award-winning photos of the Tanzanian wildlife have shot during May-November. This time is ideal for nature photographers.

A remarkable feature of the wet season is that the number of visitors to the Parks is notably lower than during the dry one. Coupled with the fact that rains are often (though not always, especially from March to May) short dribbles in the second half of a day, the advantages of rainy season should be surely taken into consideration in planning a trip to Tanzania.

Visa. Transfer. Accommodation

For nationals of the majority of countries, 90-day single-entry tourist visa to Tanzania is issued upon entry to Tanzania at the airport for USD 50. Citizens of the USA, however, are given multi-entry visas for USD 100. Nationals of the following countries need to get a referred tourism visa in the nearest embassy of Tanzania ( you could find the list of such countries here). If you need a referred visa, make sure to apply to the Embassy in at least 45 days before your visit.

Once you finish the border formalities, you will find our transfer driver waiting for you in the “arrivals” zone of the airport with a signboard with your name, who will take you to one of the best hotels in Arusha or Kilimanjaro. Tanzania Tourism Safaris entrusts your accommodation to the proven hospitality providers only.

Our Safari Prices

One of the tenets of our philosophy is to make Tanzanian adventures available and affordable for everyone. However, we firmly believe that Tanzanian hospitality is an essential part of the trip, as well as that comfort, is vital to maximize your wildlife experiences. We do not have budget camping and low-profile lodges in our pre-arranged itineraries and do not include them into our custom programs. However, our tours feature luxury and premium lodges at reasonable prices. Our company has exclusive agreements with many award-winning hotels & lodges in the National parks, allowing us to offer the most attractive prices.

Your Tanzania safari cost with Tanzania Tourism Safaris will include almost everything except the tickets to Tanzania. Drop us a line to know more about this.

Safety. Vaccination

Contrary to the popular misconception Tanzania is one of the safest country in Africa. Listed among the safest countries on the continent, Tanzania has always been a hotspot for the nature enthusiasts. This country is one of the few in Africa, whose people have never seen a civil war or other large-scale unrest. The strongest government in the East African region prioritize the development of tourism, and many measures are in force to make sure that the tourists are safeguarded from all risks and hazards.

At the same time reasonable measures of protection are advisable – do not leave your personal belongings unattended, as well as do not demonstrate unnecessarily your wealth to the locals to avoid provocations.

Unless you are entering Tanzania from the epidemiologically dangerous regions, no vaccinations are necessary, though some are advisable.

Etiquette and Tips in Tanzania

Though Tanzania is a melting pot of Bantu, European, Arabic, Indian and other cultures, the daily etiquette of the country is quite simple – the Tanzanians have taken the best and the simplest.

Greetings are important in Tanzania. They usually take longer, because the rhythm of life in this tropical country is slower than in the developed countries. So do not be surprised if a Tanzanian is shaking your hand a bit longer than you expected.

Make sure asking permission when you want to take a picture of a local. Respect the elders, be polite and you will never have any cultural problem in Tanzania. Remember that Zanzibar the Muslim population of Zanzibar is very significant. The people there frown upon open clothes, so our guests are advised not to take

Tanzanians are amiable people, for whom hospitality is not an empty word. The locals are very proud of their country and always do their best to make sure that the tourists leave the country with pleasant impressions only.
