7 Days Tanzania camping Safari
Day 1 Arusha – Tarangire National Park
Following a brief briefing in the morning, you will depart for Tarangire National Park. Huge elephant herds roam the park’s grassland, baobab trees, seasonal wetlands, and lagoons. The life-giving Tarangire River attracts a wide variety of species, including giraffes, bushbucks, and hartebeests, as well as the strange-looking gerenuk and fringe-eared oryx. Buffaloes, zebras, and wildebeests also live in the park, and they are constantly pursued by predators such as lions. Leopards are occasionally sighted, while cheetahs are rarely seen. You will be able to take in the scenery and observe the wildlife from the safari vehicle’s open top. In the late afternoon, you will arrive at a campsite inside the park, where you will spend the night in a tent.\Lunch; Dinner
Day 2 – Tarangire National Park – Lake Natron
After breakfast, depart from Tarangire National Park and travel to Mto wa Mbu, a multicultural village. From here, you’ll journey down the Rift Valley Escarpment on a spectacular and very bumpy gravel road, with Ol Doinyo Lengai, the Maasai’s “holy mountain” in the distance. The picturesque Masai town of Ngare Sero, an oasis in the hot and dusty Rift Valley, is our destination today. Thousands of flamingos breed and feed on the algae of the alkaline Lake Natron, creating a pink glow in the distance. In the afternoon, you’ll go on a walk with a Maasai guide to a nearby waterfall before returning to the campground for the night. Lunch; Dinner
Day 3 – Lake Natron – Serengeti National Park
After an early start, your vehicle will rise out of the Rift Valley and onto the Serengeti’s grassy plains by lunchtime, following challenging dirt routes with breathtaking views. The Maasai language refers to the Serengeti as “endless plains,” as the grassland savannah stretches to the horizon. The Serengeti is Tanzania’s most well-known park, and it is home to the world’s largest wildlife migration, with hundreds of thousands of animals migrating to find fresh grass and water. You’ll spend the night at a campground in the park’s northern or central areas
Day 4 – Serengeti National Park
In the Serengeti National Park, the entire day is dedicated to game viewing. Depending on your last night’s stop, you will either go on a full-day game drive or join early morning and afternoon drives in the Seronera area. Huge herds of wildebeests and zebras can be seen between December and May, with calves and foals born between January and March. In addition, the Seronera area is the ideal site to see the secretive and nocturnal leopard. You’ll spend the night in the Seronera area at a campsite. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all options.
Day 5 Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Another game drive in the Serengeti is planned for the morning, and you might see some animals you haven’t seen before. Before the temperatures peak around midday, animals are more active in the morning. After lunch, you’ll depart the Serengeti plains and journey to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area’s highlands. You’ll stay at a campground right on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, with a view of the crater’s collapsed volcano. It’s the ideal location for a sunset sundowner. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Day 6 Ngorongoro Crater – Mto wa Mbu
Get up and shine! It’s up early in the morning to tackle the steep slope that leads down into the 600-meter-deep crater. The hills are forested, but the landscape quickly transitions to savannah, with the occasional acacia tree thrown in for good measure. The wildlife in the crater is incredible, and you might even spot the Big Five — lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and leopard – if you’re lucky. Warthogs, wildebeests, zebras, hippos, and some of the area’s more than 500 bird species should all be seen. You will go to Mto wa Mbu, where you will spend the night after an entire morning of game viewing and a picnic lunch in the crater. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner
Day 7 Mto wa Mbu – Arusha
Mto wa Mbu – Arusha, Day 7
Following a leisurely breakfast, you will begin your return journey to Arusha, arriving at about lunchtime. You will be dropped off in the city center or at the airport. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner.
