Overview

This is the classic northern Tanzania safari visiting the four main game reserves, of Lake Manyara, the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater and ending with Tarangire National Park. It uses individual lodges and it can be done on both a private basis or scheduled basis in a small group context.

This itinerary departs from Kilimanjaro International Airport (7 nights). But you can also depart and return to Arusha, if that suits your flight arrangements better, with a 6 night version which is a little less expensive.

You visit four different wildlife parks over seven days. First a visit to the iconic Ngorongoro Crater, and Olduvai Gorge. Then Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Park. But the highlight will probably be the romantic and game-filled plains of the Serengeti where you can see the constant cycle of the wildebeest migration.

Tanzania Discovery is a safari by road with no light aircraft flightsSo it is popular with guests who are not fond of small planes. You travel in a comfortable 4WD safari vehicle with an experienced English-speaking Tanzanian guide. Much of the travel between various locations is scenic or interesting (or both) so the journey is very much part of the safari, especially between the Ngorongoro highlands and the Serengeti. We also think that a road safari gives you a great sense of Tanzania. The group comprises a maximum of 7 guests.

Tailor-made this Trip - Add on Zanzibar

If you wish to add on Zanzibar, we may recommend opting for the 6 night version of this itinerary which starts and ends in Arusha. As several charter companies fly from Arusha to Zanzibar on a daily basis. You can add a night in Arusha at the end (and end) and then we can arrange a Zanzibar beach stay for a few nights.

Note that if you choose the private option, you would be able to return to Arusha in time to connect with a flight to Zanzibar on the same day.

Notes
  • The cost of the private tour for 4 people is actually  a little LESS than the cost of the scheduled tour, so that's why we haven't shown it. So, if you are a family or group of friends we strongly recommend the private tour.
  • The day of departure for the scheduled tours is every Saturday. It is easier and quicker o get availability for private tours if they also depart on the Saturday.
  • The single supplement is less than 20% more so we recommend the scheduled tour for solo travellers as it is an easy way to travel without paying for a private tour.
  • This itinerary shows as departing from Kilimanjaro International Airport but you can also depart and end in Arusha Town (6 night itinerary). It costs approx $280 less per person sharing for the 6 night version but we will need to arrange transfers from Arusha airport. This may work better depending on your international flight arrangements.
