Serengeti Safari - 7 nights

Explore some of the most iconic destinations of East Africa while on our 7 Day Northern Tanzania Lodge tour during which you will seek wildebeest crossing the crocodile infested waters of the Grumeti River during their annual great migration. See prides of lion lazily resting in the shade of acacia trees and go on a guided bush walk to see the regions smaller creatures.

Descend into the famous Ngorongoro Crater and delight in spotting flamingos on the lake, search for herds of zebra and the white colobus monkeys which inhabit the forests. Stay on a working coffee farm on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area and learn about the production of one of the most famous beverages on the planet.

Travel to the beautiful biodiverse, tropical cloud forests of the Usambara Mountains where you can go on hikes in search of jewel like chameleons and many pretty waterfalls. Discover a number of interesting plants, ferns and violets which are endemic to these mountains.

Day 1:    Serengeti National Reserve (1D)
 
 

Departing from the country’s capital Arusha you will be driven to your lodge which is situated on the edge of the Serengeti National Park’s western corridor, close to the Grumeti River which is famous as a barrier filled with some of the largest crocodiles in Africa which the wildebeest have to cross during the Great Migration. You will arrive in time to depart on an afternoon game drive. This will be led by a knowledgeable local ranger who will help track the animals.

Day 2:    Serengeti National Reserve (1B, 1L, 1D)
 
 

Today, you will enjoy a morning game drive in the Serengeti National Reserve. The region supports a large population of year round wildlife including wildebeest and zebra. The Grumeti River is home to large pods of hippos and very big crocodiles. Alternately, you can head out on a walking safari in the company of an armed guide who will reveal the secrets of the bush to you.

Afterwards you will return to camp and have some time to relax during the middle of the day. In the late afternoon you will once more set out on a guided game drive during which you may come across a pride of lions resting in the shade of an acacia tree.

Day 3:    Ngorongoro Crater / Karatu (1B, 1L,1D)
 
 

In the morning you will leave the Serengeti behind and travel to the iconic Ngorongoro Crater, the remains of an ancient volcano whose caldera is home to a microcosm of the East African safari with its small lake which is home to flamingos, herds of wildebeest and zebra and a small forest which is home to the monochrome white colobus monkeys. You will descend to the crater floor and enjoy a game drive around the lake before you head to your accommodation for the night on a coffee plantation bordering the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area.

Day 4:    Karatu (1B, 1L,1D)
 
 

In the morning you can go on a walk into the beautiful surrounding forest or take a guided tour of the coffee plantation to gain insight into the production of one of the world’s most famous beverages. Speak to our consultant about doing an optional excursion today to the Manyara National Park famous for its tree climbing lions or Lake Eyasi to see the Hadebe Bushmen tribe, one of the last true Bushmen tribes on Earth.

Lake Manyara Excursion
Arriving at Lake Manyara, you will enter the park and start your first game drive, first through lush forest and then out to open grassland and the lake edge. You can expect to see a variety of animals, such as impala, elephants, dik-dik, bushbuck, hippos and, if you’re lucky, you might see the famous tree-climbing lions of Manyara.

Eyasi Bushman Excursion
The Bushman (also known as the Wahadzabe tribe) still maintain their traditional hunter-gatherer way of life. A visit to the village will be led by a local guide who will describe their lifestyle. The Bushman will make fire from sticks and will show you their very few belongings. They will take you on a simulated hunt in the area with their bows and arrows, and visitors can try a little target practice. The visit concludes with a traditional singing and dancing.

Day 5:    Usambara Mountains (1B, 1L,1D)
 
 

Today, you will have quite a long drive through the changing countryside of Tanzania to the cloud forests of the beautiful Usambara Mountains which are a biodiversity hotspot. You will arrive in the late afternoon and have some time to relax before enjoying sundowners and a delicious dinner. The lodge is located close to the Irente Viewpoint where you can enjoy panoramic views of the Maasai Steppe.

Day 6:    Usambara Mountains (1B, 1L, 1D)
 
 

This day is yours to spend at leisure relaxing at the lodge. The Usambara Mountains were a retreat for the German colonial settlers during the hot summer months. You can enjoy hikes into the surrounding tropical forest which is home to many unique plants and birds. Keep a look out for some of the many species of chameleons that the forests are home to.

Day 7:    Departure (1B)
 
 

This is the final day of your affordable Northern Tanzania Lodge holiday package and after breakfast you will be taken to the Kilimanjaro Airport for your flight. Speak to consultants about adding on an extension to the beautiful spice islands of Zanzibar.

Thank you for arranging a wonderful trip. I had always dreamed of coming to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. We saw plenty of the wildebeest on the migration so got there at just the righ time and all the lodges were comfortable. It was an added bonus doing the Hadzabe Bushmen tour which was facinating.
