Day 1 – Tarangire National Park

Our Camping Safari Tanzania starts today with the Tarangire National Park, about a 2 hour drive from the tourist capital Arusha. Tarangire Park is named after the Tarangire River, which is the park’s lifeblood. The Tarangire National Park is home to Africa’s largest population of elephants and the second-largest population of lions. Baobab trees are plentiful throughout the park and can easily be spotted because of their distinctive silhouettes against the blue sky. In the evening we will drive to Africa Safari Lake Manyara where you overnight in a Safari tent with shared bathrooms. You can take a dive into the swimming pool and enjoy a sun-downer drink at the bar.

Day 2 – Lake Manyara National Park

At 325 square kilometers, Manyara National Park is certainly small by Tanzanian standards, but don’t let that put you off. It is, quite simply, amazing. Bordered by the dramatic Rift Valley, the rest of the park is a pretty medley of grassy floodplains, enchanting evergreen forest, acacia woodland and twinkling groundwater springs. And of course Lake Manyara itself, a glittering and iridescent alkaline pool that expands and contracts with the seasons. Here you can find a big population of flamingo. In the afternoon you drive back to Africa Safari Lake Manyara where you spend the night in your Safari tent again.

Day 3 – Serengeti National Park

On day three we will head towards the Serengeti National Park. After a few hour drive we will be greeted by the Serengeti, one of the most iconic African wildlife reserves. The Serengeti is home to many different types of wildlife, including lions, elephants, buffalos and more. On our Safari through the park we’ll stop to watch some of the animals at their natural habitats. We’ll learn about their lifestyles as well as the threats they face in their habitats. Toward the evening we arrive at Africa Safari Ikoma where you over night in Safari Tents.

Day 4 – Ikoma Wildlife Management Area

The next day we will start the day with a game drive in the Ikoma Wildlife Management Area. This area supports a variety of wildlife across 242 square kilometres of pristine wilderness including herds of elephant, waterbuck, Black and White colobus monkeys, shy leopard and both the Greater and the Lesser Kudu. In the afternoon we will explore the area by foot with a ranger (walking Safari) and you can ask questions about the park’s wildlife, plants and geology. You will learn about the local people living so close to the border of the Serengeti. A truly unique experience! You spend another night camping at Africa Safari Ikoma.

Day 5 – Serengeti National Park

Today we go on another game drive in the Serengeti – home to every member of the Big Five. You can ask your guide what you want to discover, every piece of the Serengeti offers something unique. Whether it’s spying on wild dog, watching rhino amble through the brush near Kopjes or losing your breath at the sight of big cats chasing down their prey. In the late afternoon we head to the Ngorongoro conservation area. You overnight Eileens Trees Lodge, a beautiful lodge situated in lush gardens.

While on a Camping Safari in Tanzania there are no fences or walls around the campsite. So it is possible that a family of elephants pass by your tent.

Day 6 – Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast you will proceed to Ngorongoro Conservation Area and descend into the crater for a wonderful game drive with a picnic lunch. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the cavernous bowl-shaped crater is in fact a caldera, formed two to three million years ago when a large volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself. Today, this ‘flat pan’ is covered with grasses and home to an unprecedented number animals including the black rhino, lions, magnificent elephants and smaller game. Due to the elevation of the Ngorongoro area it enjoys more rain throughout the year so most of the animals don’t need to migrate. With a bit of luck the ‘Big Five’ can be spotted during one game drive only. After this exciting game drive we return back to Arusha.
