Tanzania Safari

Tanzania is perhaps the most beautiful country in Africa and this tour will show you the best this country has to offer and will leave you with memories and experiences that will last a lifetime.

Tour Itinerary

 

1.  UK to Kilimanjaro

Depart London on your scheduled, overnight flight to Kilimanjaro international airport, via Nairobi.

 

2.  Kilimanjaro to Arusha

On arrival, you will be met by your guide and transferred to your hotel just outside Arusha. Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure to settle in and relax.

 

3.  Arusha to Tarangire

Following breakfast, you will depart your hotel for your first taste of African safari in the beautiful Tarangire National Park. Open the roof of your jeep to view wild elephants marching across meandering rivers set against a background of grassy savannahs interspersed with the iconic Baobab tree, Africa's 'Tree of Life'. As well as reputedly home to the largest elephant population in the world, Tarangire is also thought to be Tanzania's premier bird watching destination. Following your game drive leave the park for your stylish accommodation on the shores of Lake Manyara.

4.  Tarangire to Karatu

Early this morning you can choose to quietly wander through the bush in the company of a Maasai tribesman on a guided walk to spot flamingos and zebra, as well as learning about the medicinal uses of indigenous plants. Afterwards, leave Lake Manyara and make your way up into highlands of the Great Rift valley for a relaxing stay at the Ngorongoro Farmhouse. Set within 600 acres of its own farmland, this lodge boasts an idyllic location and organically produces its own food. Explore the grounds on a coffee tour or spend the rest of the day relaxing by the pool.

5.  Karatu to Serengeti National Park

This morning you will drive into Ngorongoro National Park. This exhilarating journey climbs up to the rim of the crater into mist-shrouded mountain forests over 2300 metres above sea level and then down into the semi-arid planes of the park. You will then have an opportunity to visit a traditional Maasai village. Sit on cowhide beds inside a thatched hut as the village chief's son explains in English the way of life, history and proud traditions of his people as well as showing you around the Kraal - a truly amazing experience and a great privilege. After stopping for lunch then continue on to Africa's best and most famous wildlife reserve, the awe-inspiring Serengeti National Park. Enjoy an afternoon safari at one of the greatest wildlife-watching destinations on earth. Afterwards, arrive at your lodge for an unforgettable two-night stay in the heart of the wild Africa.

6.  Central Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti - meaning 'endless plains' in Maasai - stretches over 1.5 million hectares and is home to the annual Great Migration, in which over two million antelope travel north up to the Maasai Mara, following the ancient rhythms of the African seasons. This really is one of the greatest shows on earth. The Serengeti is also renowned for its predators, especially lions. Watch these majestic creatures in their natural habitat alongside leopards, cheetahs, jackals, hyenas, giraffe, zebras, buffalo and much more against the spectacular backdrop of rolling grasslands dotted with flat-top acacia trees and rocky outcrops. Today's full day safari is a highlight of the tour and a once in a lifetime experience.

7.  Serengeti National Park to Karatu

Today you will leave the Serengeti and travel to the Ngorongoro Crater. Over three million years old, this ancient crater is the largest caldera - collapsed volcano - in the world and home to the highest density of lions and predators on the planet. Endangered black rhino are protected within the crater, hippos cool themselves in the soda lakes whilst giant-tusked elephants roam the grasslands and leopards recline on acacia trees in the enchanting Lerai forest. A truly magical day of safari awaits. Afterwards, ascend the ridge to spend your last night up in the mountains.

Visa requirements are subject to change and obtaining a visa is the responsibility of the traveler and not Travelorama. We recommend you check with your destinations' Tourist Board or Embassy prior to departure for the most up to date guidelines regarding these.

 

Insurance

We strongly recommend that you and all members of your party are suitably insured as soon as you book your holiday. It is a condition of booking that you must have suitable travel insurance. It is important that you purchase travel insurance that suitably covers your participation in whatever activities you may undertake at the time that you make your booking. To assist you with this, we have arranged travel insurance in partnership with Holiday Extras. To arrange your travel insurance with Holiday Extras, please call 0800 781 4237 and quote 'WK830' for preferential rates. Please ensure you provide us with the name of your insurer, policy number and their 24-hour emergency contact number as soon as possible. Travelorama will not be liable for any costs incurred by you due to your failure to take out suitable travel insurance from the date of booking.

The deposit applies to adults and children. If you are within 10 weeks of travel then the full balance of the holiday will be payable.

Physical Accessibility

This tour is accessible to most people with an average level of fitness and normal mobility. It involves full days of sightseeing, often on foot and includes some hiking, climbing of stairs and getting on and off 4X4 vehicles. Many of the roads in Tanzania are unpaved and so journeys can sometimes be long and bumpy. Please note that this tour is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.

 

Group Size

The minimum number of travellers in your group will be 6, and the maximum will be 30. If in the unlikely event there are less than 6 people booked on your tour date, we will endeavour to reduce any disruption to your holiday and try to operate your tour with lower passenger numbers. If we are not able to operate your departure date then you may be asked to change to a different date and a full refund will be made available to you should this alternative not be suitable.

 

Tour Guide

This is an escorted tour, meaning you will be met on arrival at Kilimanjaro airport and will have a guide with you for the duration of your tour, ensuring that you have first-hand knowledge and assistance at all times.

 

Currency Information

The currency in Tanzania is the Tanzanian Shilling (Tsh). You should be able to buy currency before you leave the UK or whilst away, however, US Dollars are also widely accepted. There will be access to ATMs in most major cities where you will be able to withdraw money in the local currency.

 

Personal Expenses

You will need to take money with you to cover any personal purchases such as souvenirs, laundry, any meals not included in the itinerary as well as drinks and any additional snacks. We recommend you take a minimum of GBP £200 per person. It is a good idea to try and maintain a supply of small notes and change in either the local currency or US Dollars for tipping or small purchases.
