Description

The Rongai route is the only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north, close to the Kenyan border. Though gaining popularity amongst climbers, this route still experiences low crowds. Rongai has a more gradual slope than the mountain’s other routes and therefore is recommended for those with less backpacking experience. It is the preferred route for those looking for an alternative to the popular Marangu route, for those who would like a more remote hike, and for those who are climbing during the rainy season (the north side receives less precipitation). Although the scenery is not as varied as the western routes, Rongai makes up for this by passing through true wilderness areas for nearly the entire way. Descent is made via the Marangu route.

Description

Family Safari is a special designed Safari to those clients who wish to travel with their families during holidays time to Tanzania. You will have a 7 day tour package taking you through the finest destinations in Tanzania, thus Arusha National Park, the great Serengeti National Park and Tarangire National where you will get the most out of Tanzania with your favorite people/ Family.

Day 1 Arusha City to Arusha National Park

  • From the city of Arusha, you will head straight to the Arusha national park for a full day enjoyment as a warm up that prepares you for the best Tanzania family experience to the north circuit.
  • It is a popular destination for day trip visitors who are about to embark from the town of Arusha on longer northern circuit safaris. The small national park includes the slopes, summit, and ash cone of Mt. Meru, the Momela Lakes, Ngurdoto Crater, and the lush highland forests that blanket its lower slopes.
  • Game viewing around the Momela Lakes is at a laid-back and quiet pace, and while passing through the forest many visitors stop to search for troupes of rare colubus monkeys playing in the canopy.

Day 2 Arusha National Park to the Great Sarengeti National Park

  • Early in the morning after breakfast you will depart for Serengeti National Park.
  • The Serengeti National Park is the world’s last great wildlife refuge as it contains an estimated three million large animals, most of which take part in a seasonal migration that is one of nature’s wonders. The area covers 14,763 sq. km and the name Serengeti comes from the Maasai ‘Siringet’, meaning endless plains.
  • You will enjoy the afternoon game drive before heading to your accommodations for the overnight sleep.

Day 3 Full day Central Serengeti

  • Early morning after breakfast, you will enjoy a full day in different parts of Serengeti!
  • The Central Serengeti offers superb game viewing all year round due to its abundance of resident animals. Specifically, the Seronera River Valley in the Central Serengeti is a ‘must see’ on every safari regardless of the specific month of travel.
  • Game viewing in Central Serengeti is at its best during the dry season (June - November) as resident animals are more concentrated in the immediate area due to the lack of water in the plains. Resident herbivores include impala, buffalo, hippo, warthog, topi, hartebeest and giraffe. Resident carnivores include lion and leopard.
  • Late afternoon you will head back to you accommodations for the overnight sleep.

Day 4 & 5 South Serengeti

  • This area consists of the world famous Serengeti plains. These nutrient rich plains are home to the enormous migratory herds of wildebeest and zebra during the green season. Wildlife viewing is spectacular as over two million animals will be spread across the open plains.
  • In addition to the large migratory herds, predators (lions, cheetahs and hyenas) are abundant. This is the Serengeti at its finest!

Day 6 Serengeti nation Park to Tarangire National Park

  • Early morning after breakfast we will head straight to the Tarangire National Park for another game viewing.
  • Tarangire is famous for its diverse landscape with nine different vegetation zone. The park is particularly known for the abundance of Ancient Baobab trees (the largest trees in the continent) which fill the landscape and dwarf the animals next to them. The river inside the park is full of wildlife ranging from a large variety of birds to lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, antelopes and, of course, elephants.
  • The lunch area is fascinating, boasting an observatory with amazing views to the river and wildlife with good chances of seeing a hunt while having your picnic lunch. In the afternoon we will still do a game drive before continuing to your accommodation for an overnight.

Description

The Marangu route is perhaps the easiest and most comfortable route to reach the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro. The route is well-developed and the climb is constant and moderate. Only the approach to the summit is the exception as it is slightly more demanding. The accommodation on this tour is in simple mountain huts, which might be an advantage compared to the camping routes.

  • The summit is now a further 3921ft /1195m up and you will make your final ascent the same night. Go to bed around 1830hrs and try to get as much rest and sleep as possible.

Day 5: Kibo Hut

  • Around 2330hrs,you will wake up and after some tea and biscuits you shuffle off into the night, and this is where the going really gets tough.

Description

The Machame route, also known as the “Whiskey” route, is the most popular route on Kilimanjaro. Machame’s draw is in its scenic beauty. However, the trail is considered difficult, steep and challenging, particularly due to its shorter itinerary. Therefore this route is better suited for more adventurous folks or those with some high altitude, hiking or backpacking experience.

Day 1 Machame Gate

  • (1490 m) - Machame camp (2980 m), Hiking time: 7 hours, Distance: About 18 km’s - Habitat: Montane forest.
  • The drive from Moshi to the Machame Gate takes about 50 minutes.
  • The journey passes through the village of Machame which is located on the lower slopes of the mountain.
  • As we leave the park gate, we walk through the dense rain forest on a winding trail up a ridge until we reach the Machame Camp.

Day 2 Machame camp

  • (2980m) - Shira camp (3840m), Hiking time: 6 hours. Distance: About 9 km’s – Habitat: Moorland
  • You rise early at Machame camp and after breakfast, you climb an hour or so to the top of the forest and then for 2 hours at a gentler gradient through the moorland zone.
  • After a short lunch and rest, you continue up a rocky ridge onto the Shira plateau.
  • By now you will be able to see in an easterly direction, the Western Breach with its stunning glaciers.
  • You are now due west of Kibo and after a short hike, you will reach the Shira campsite at 3 840m.
  • The porters will boil drinking and washing water, before serving dinner.
  • The night at this exposed camp will even be colder than the previous night, with temperatures dropping to well below freezing.

Day 3 Shira

  • (3840m)-Lava Tower (4630m)-Barranco camp (3950m), Hiking time: 7 Hrs, Distance: About 15 km’s - Habitat: Semi-desert
  • We continue to the east up a ridge and then head southeast towards the Lava Tower – a 300 ft tall volcanic rock formation.
  • We descend down to Barranco Camp through the strange but beautiful Senecio Forest to an altitude of 13,000 ft.
  • Although you begin and end the day at the same elevation, the time spent at higher altitude is very beneficial for acclimatization.

Day 4 Barranco to Karanga Valley - Barafu camp

  • (4550m), Hiking time: 7 hours Distance: About 13 km’s - Habitat: Alpine desert
  • Totally exposed to the ever-present gales the tents are pitched on a narrow, stony, and dangerous ridge.
  • Make sure that you familiarize yourself with the terrain before dark to avoid any accidents.
  • The summit is now a further 1345m up and you will make the final ascent the same night.

Description

This is one of the best Tanzania safari experience as it gives a wide opportunity to the visitors to experience the nature and wildlife in the most joyful destinations in Africa as the tour will take you to Tarangire, Serengeti national parks and Ngorongoro Crater where you will have enough time to spend there.

Day 1 Arusha to Tarangire National Park

  • After breakfast, you will be picked up from hotel by your safari guide and driven to the Tarangire National Park.
  • Tarangire National Park is almost 3000 sq. km in size and is probably best known for its huge numbers of elephants and baobab trees.
  • The name of the park comes from the Tarangire River which crosses through the park. Tarangire is especially spectacular during the dry season (June - November) as wildlife concentrations rival that of the Serengeti (since enormous populations of elephants and other animals are drawn to the Tarangire River as their only source of water).
  • With its varied habitats and permanent water in the Tarangire River the park is home to over 2000 elephants and 500 bird species.
  • Late afternoon you will head to your accommodations for an overnight sleep.

Day 2 Tarangire to Lake manyara

  • Early in the morning, you will be picked up from the lodge and driven to Lake Manyara National park.
  • Lake Manyara is a beautiful little park, which is famous for its tree-climbing lions, elephants and large troops of baboons.
  • The park is home to an amazing variety of birds and animals considering its small size.
  • A short visit to this serene park will greatly diversify your safari experience as the lush green jungle habitat is of stark contrast to the other parks you will visit during your safari.
  • You will continue with the game drive in the park until in the evening when you will head straight to your accommodations for the overnight sleep.

Day 3 Lake Manyara to Serengeti

  • After breakfast you will depart for Serengeti National Park with picnic lunch box.
  • The Serengeti National Park is the world’s last great wildlife refuge as it contains an estimated three million large animals, most of which take part in a seasonal migration that is one of nature’s wonders. The area covers 14,763 sq. km and the name Serengeti comes from the Maasai ‘Siringet’, meaning endless plains.
  • You will enjoy the afternoon game drive before heading to your accommodations for the overnight sleep.

Day 4 Explore the Serengeti National Park

  • Early morning after breakfast, you will enjoy a full day in different parts of Serengeti!
  • The Central Serengeti offers superb game viewing all year round due to its abundance of resident animals. Specifically, the Seronera River Valley in the Central Serengeti is a ‘must see’ on every safari regardless of the specific month of travel.
  • Game viewing in Central Serengeti is at its best during the dry season (June - November) as resident animals are more concentrated in the immediate area due to the lack of water in the plains. Resident herbivores include impala, buffalo, hippo, warthog, topi, hartebeest and giraffe. Resident carnivores include lion and leopard.
  • Late afternoon you will head back to you accommodations for the overnight sleep.

Day 5 Serengeti National Park

  • Another full day in Serengeti National Park.
  • There are several documented resident lion prides just within a one-hour game drive radius from Seronera.
  • During the dry season, the resident prides begin to shift west and north in their territories and concentrate in the central region of the park. The dry season is particularly good time for lion viewing in the Central of the Serengeti National Park.
  • The Central Serengeti is also one of the best areas in Africa to spot the elusive leopard. You may be lucky enough to encounter this majestic cat in the branches of the sausage trees that dot the banks of the Seronera River.
  • Later in the evening you will head to your accommodations for the overnight sleep.

Day 6 Serengeti to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

  • In the morning after breakfast you will enjoy a final half day in Serengeti before heading the Ngorongoro Conservation area for another game viewing.
  • The half day will be spent on the Ngorongoro Highlands.
  • The Ngorongoro Highlands are situated within the designated Ngorongoro Conservation Area which protects the land of the area and the traditional Masaai way of life within it. Of course the Crater itself is the main attraction of the Conservation Area, but equally amazing are the highlands that roll on around the Crater.
  • This is a vast, undulating volcanic landscape, dotted with craters and lakes and oozing minerals and fertile soil. This area should not be missed on a northern Tanzania safari.
  • Late afternoon you will head to your accommodations for the overnight sleep.

Day 7 Ngorongoro Crater to Arusha

  • Early in the morning you will descend into the crater for a game sighting.
  • Often labelled as the eighth natural wonder of the world, the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact crater in the world. About 2 million years ago the Ngorongoro volcano erupted, and its walls collapsed.
  • The volcano floor sank to create a natural enclosure with its 600 m tall walls. At over 19 kilometres wide, Ngorongoro Crater is filled with great areas of acacia forest, hippo filled swamps and open grasslands.
  • These different habitats contain over 30,000 animals including elephants, warthogs, flamingos, magnificent bird life, the rare black rhinoceros and all the predatory cats.
  • The Masai can also be seen grazing their cattle alongside the buffalo and wildebeest. Later you will ascend from the crater and head straight through the Arusha City to the Airport. Or an extended accommodation can be arranged for an extra fee.

Description

Get a taste of Tanzania with this brief safari itinerary, visiting two of the country’s best wildlife-watching destinations. See the Great Migration of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle and impala at Serengeti National Park, then head to the incredible natural phenomenon, the UNESCO-protected Ngorongoro Crater. Both the Serengeti and the Crater are home to Africa’s Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino), full of abundant wildlife and unforgettable safari experience.

Day 1 Fly to Serengeti National Park

  • Arriving in Tanzania, on your first day, you’ll fly from the city of Arusha to the Serengeti, home to Tanzania’s most famous national park.
  • The Serengeti offers some of the best wildlife viewing in Africa and is famous for greatest wildlife spectacle on Earth, the Great Migration. Every year, over two million wildebeest and zebra migrate north from the Serengeti National Park to the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya.

Day 2 Explore Serengeti National Park

  • Today, head out on safari for your first full day in Serengeti National Park. Spot Africa’s Big Five (lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant), embark on an adventurous walking safari with a local guide, or depending on the season, witness the Great Migration.
  • During the annual cycle of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle and impala, the herds must brave the perilous Mara River, which runs through the Masai Mara Game Reserve on the Kenyan side and Serengeti National Park on the Tanzanian side. They face treacherous water currents and dangerous predators as they cross the river in search of greener pastures. With crocodiles lurking in the muddy waters and lions, cheetahs, leopards and hyenas patrolling the river banks, this is a particularly dangerous time to be a wildebeest or a zebra.

Day 3 Fly to Ngorongoro Crater

  • Fly from the Serengeti to the Ngorongoro Crater, a unique natural phenomenon and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • The Crater is undoubtedly one of the most breath-taking wildlife safari sites in the world, with the 600-metre high crater wall offering incredible wildlife viewing opportunities.

  • You can expect to see a diverse range of wildlife, including buffalo, warthog, wildebeest, zebra, hippo and elephant. There’s also a huge population of predators: lion, hyena, jackal, cheetah and leopards.
  • The resident population of black rhino is a real treat, as they’re very difficult to spot elsewhere in Tanzania.

Day 5 Fly to Arusha

  • You will check-out today after a half day game viewing then in the afternoon you will be driven back through the Arusha City to the Airport to complete your safari. Or an extended accommodation can be arranged for an extra fee.
