Tour Details

07 days including 2 nights at hotel lodge.

Tanzania has three safari circuits, and each one of them, in its own right, would make Tanzania a top wildlife destination. The popular Northern circuit with the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater offers one of the best classical safaris in Africa, especially if timed with the annual wildebeest migration.

This safari in Tanzania starts and ends in Arusha town which is the base town for all the safaris that we offer in the Northern Tanzania Safari Circuit. On this safari you get to visit all the most famous parks in the Northern Tanzania Safari Circuit namely; Tarangire National Park, the Ngoro Ngoro Crater as well as the endless plains of Serengeti.

Tarangire is one of the more seasonal parks in northern Tanzania, with a lot of migratory movement within the greater Tarangire ecosystem. In the Dry season, between June and October, large herds of animals are attracted to the Tarangire River. At this time, the elephant numbers are spectacular and the park should be part of any safari in northern Tanzania.

The Serengeti is one of the most famous parks in Africa and is synonymous with wildlife and classic African scenery. It is Tanzania’s oldest park and a Unesco World Heritage Site. It is home to the spectacular wildebeest migration and offers top-class wildlife viewing throughout the year.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is found in the Northern part of Tanzania and a top tourist attraction in the country. The conservation Area was declared as a UNESCO Heritage site in the year 1979 due to its unique diversity filled with animals, highlands, forests and people. Ngorongoro conservation area is a home to a wide range of wildlife and the most unique feature and top tourist attraction here is the Ngorongoro crater which was formed over 2 million years ago and it was named by the Masai after the Ngoro-Ngoo-Ngoro sounds which were made by the grazing animals in the area . It is also a home to major sites in Tanzania like Olduvai gorge which is referred to as the cradle of mankind. Ngorongoro is bordered by the Serengeti National park and they share the Ndutu Area where most of the calving of the animals before the great migration occurs. A trip to Ngorongoro will give you a chance to explore all the sites, wildlife as you enjoy your ‘me’ time in the several camps around

Itinerary

DAY 1 – Arrive in Tanzania and transfer to Arusha

You will be picked up at the Kilimanjaro International Airport and transferred to your hotel in Arusha town.
Overnight at hotel.

DAY 2 – Arusha – Tarangire National Park

Following an early breakfast, you leave Arusha town for Tarangire National Park.
Lunch boxes will be provided by the guide before the start of the safari.

This park covers an area of 1360 sq. km (525 sq. miles) and is covered with scattered Baobab trees, alternating with open acacia woodland which cater for wildlife food, open bush plains, swamps and rivers, especially the river Tarangire.
Wildlife like Elephants, Zebra, Giraffe, Dik Dik and Ostrich and different species of birds can be seen.

Dinner and overnight at Panorama Campsite.    

DAY 3 - Tarangire National Park – Serengeti National Park

After an early breakfast, we depart from Tarangire National Park and head across the Great Rift Valley’s floor.

Up the escarpment and traverse the Ngoro Ngoro Conservation area in what, will ultimately end up being a pleasant and enjoyable scenic drive. You will enjoy the beautiful scenery and breath-taking vistas on your way to the Serengeti National Park.
We reach the Serengeti in the afternoon in time for an afternoon game drive until late evening, when you will check in at a camp.

Camp dinner and overnight.

DAY 4 – Full day at the Serengeti National Park

Early morning wake up call for a sunrise game drive to try and catch up with the rare nocturnal animal species, as well as the early risers among the diurnal ones.
It is a great time to see animals within a close distance, as most game like to line up at the roadside to escape the morning dew.
After breakfast at your camp, you will then spend the whole day enjoying game drives within the Serengeti national park.

The name Serengeti comes from a Maasai word ‘Siringit’, meaning plains without end, and true to the name you will explore vast stretches of African Savannah in search of the many animals that Serengeti has to offer.
Apart from the wildebeests you can expect to spot other animals including elephants, lions, cheetahs, the elusive leopards, zebras, elands and many of the resident and migratory birds.

 A hot lunch is enjoyed at one of the Picnic sites, most likely at the Naabi Hill Gate, where you will also get the chance to stretch your legs while your guide sorts out the registration and relevant paperwork.

Dinner and overnight at the campsite.

DAY 5 – Serengeti National Park to Ngoro Ngoro Crater

After breakfast, a morning game drive

 Later in the day, slowly start driving through Serengeti National Park in direction to Ngoro Ngoro Crater.
Dinner & overnight at Ngoro Ngoro Simba Campsite

DAY 6 - Ngoro Ngoro Crater to Arusha

Following an early breakfast at your campsite, you will descend into the Crater floor for game drives in the Ngoro Ngoro Crater.
It is recommended to descend to the crater as early as possible. The earlier you descend to the Crater floor, even with a packed breakfast, the better your chances are of seeing the rare animals such as the Black Rhinos (with a little luck).

Spend the better part of the morning exploring the Ngoro Ngoro Crater until lunch time.

Ngoro Ngoro crater with its 600- to 650-metre-high walls is like a natural zoo, having the highest concentration of wild animals and it is here where you can spot the Big Five in one day, if lucky enough.

After a picnic lunch, most likely taken at the hippo poolside designated picnic site, you will drive up the Crater rim and out of the Conservation area.

Return to Arusha, arriving late in the afternoon.

DAY 7 - Departure

Breakfast.
Pick up from your hotel for the airport for your return flight home or next destination.

Weather:

Generally speaking, the weather is tropical, particularly on the coast, where heat and humidity prevail. However, the north western highlands are consistently cool, while the central plateau remains dry and arid all year round.

​Most of Tanzania’s popular tourist destinations experience two rainy seasons and two dry seasons every year. The long rains usually last from early March to late May, bringing with them heavy afternoon downpours and high humidity. Temperatures at this time of year frequently exceed 30 degrees Celsius. The short rainy season (November and December) sees lighter, less reliable rains and the start of the hottest time of year, which lasts until the end of February. Temperatures during this period can get as high as 40 degrees Celsius.

January and February constitute the short dry season. The most pleasant time of year, however, is the long dry season which lasts from late June to mid-October. During this time, rainfall is uncommon, while clear skies and plenty of sunshine are to be expected. Temperatures are relatively cool and can be chilly on early morning game drives. Of course, the higher slopes of famous Tanzanian peaks including Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru can experience sub-zero temperatures at any time of year.

What to Pack: Pack light clothing including a sweatshirt or jacket for the evenings. If you’re visiting a higher altitude destination including Ngorongoro or one of the mountains, make sure to bring a jacket and sweaters, as well as a warm hat and scarf


Currency:

The official currency of Tanzania is the Tanzanian Shilling (or shilingi in Swahili). The Tanzanian shilling dates back to June 1966, where it replaced the East African shilling at par.
One shilling is divided into 100 cents or “senti” in Swahili. However, the currency has been so inflated that “senti” coins are no longer circulated or used.
There are many denominations of currency in Tanzania, including several coins and banknotes. Many of these units of currency have since been discontinued, as inflation has rendered them mostly unusable.
The coins which are currently circulated in the Tanzanian economy are the 50, 100, 200, and 500 shilling. Banknotes that are currently circulated are the 500, 1,000, 2,000, 5,000, and 10,000 shilling.
Currently, $1 USD is equivalent to roughly 2,300 shillings

It is fairly easy to get money in Tanzania should you run out. There are many ATMs located in city centres, but we would recommend you only use ATMs in official bank branches. These ATMs will always be stocked with cash, in working order, and free of fraudulent behaviour.

Bring USD US Dollars and in small notes.
If you opt for the visa on arrival, have a $50 note ready. On departure, $25 for airport tax.

The following are the suggested minimum tips, per day: Head Guide $25, Cook $20
Over this minimum, it depends on how happy you are with the team.​

Of course, it also depends on the length of the safari. For a safari that takes place over multiple days, you might want to tip more by providing a bulk sum at the end of the trip.
Generally, tips are given to the Head Guide, who will then distribute to the rest of the team. You can also approach any member of the team at the end of the safari and personally give it to them. 


Vaccination:

Travellers should be up to date with routine vaccination courses and boosters as recommended. These vaccinations include for example measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and diphtheria-tetanus-polio vaccine.

Country specific diphtheria recommendations are not provided here. Diphtheria tetanus and polio are combined in a single vaccine in some countries. Therefore, when a tetanus booster is recommended for travellers, diphtheria vaccine is also given. Should there be an outbreak of diphtheria in a country, diphtheria vaccination guidance will be provided.

Those who may be at increased risk of an infectious disease due to their work, lifestyle choice, or certain underlying health problems should be up to date with additional recommended vaccines.

The vaccines which are recommended for most travellers visiting this country:
Hepatitis A
Tetanus
Typhoid

The vaccines which are recommended for some travellers visiting this country:
Cholera
Rabies
Hepatitis B
Tuberculosis (TB)
Meningococcal Disease
Yellow Fever
Certificate requirements

Please read the information below carefully, as certificate requirements may be relevant to certain travellers only. For travellers’ further details, if required, should be sought from their healthcare professional. ​

  • There is a low potential for exposure to yellow fever throughout Tanzania.
  • Under International Health Regulations, a certificate of yellow fever vaccination is required from travellers over 1 year of age arriving from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission, and for travellers having transited for more than 12 hours through an airport of a country with risk of yellow fever transmission.
  • According to World Health Organization (WHO), from 11 July 2016 (for all countries), the yellow fever certificate will be valid for the duration of the life of the person vaccinated. As a consequence, a valid certificate, presented by arriving travellers, cannot be rejected on the grounds that more than ten years have passed since the date vaccination became effective as stated on the certificate; and that boosters or revaccination cannot be required.

 

Malaria
Travellers should follow an ABCD guide to preventing malaria:
Awareness of the risk – Risk depends on the specific location, season of travel, length of stay, activities and type of accommodation.
Bite prevention – Travellers should take mosquito bite avoidance measures.
Chemoprophylaxis – Travellers should take antimalarials (malaria prevention tablets) if appropriate for the area (see below). No antimalarials are 100% effective but taking them in combination with mosquito bite avoidance measures will give substantial protection against malaria.
Diagnosis – Travellers who develop a fever of 38°C [100°F] or higher more than one week after being in a malaria risk area, or who develop any symptoms suggestive of malaria within a year of return should seek immediate medical care. Emergency standby treatment may be considered for those going to remote areas with limited access to medical attention.

  • There is a high risk of malaria in all areas of Tanzania below 1,800m (including Zanzibar): atovaquone/proguanil OR doxycycline OR mefloquine recommended.
  • There is no risk of malaria above 1,800m: bite avoidance recommended

Altitude illness in Tanzania
There is a point of elevation in this country higher than 2,500 metres. An example place of interest: Mt Kilimanjaro 5,895m.

Prevention
Travellers should spend a few days at an altitude below 3,000m. Where possible travellers should avoid travel from altitudes less than 1,200m to altitudes greater than 3,500m in a single day. Ascent above 3,000m should be gradual. Travellers should avoid increasing sleeping elevation by more than 500m per day and ensure a rest day (at the same altitude) every three or four days. Acetazolamide can be used to assist with acclimatization, but should not replace gradual ascent. Travellers who develop symptoms of AMS (headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea and sleep disturbance) should avoid further ascent. In the absence of improvement or with progression of symptoms the first response should be to descend.

Trip Highlights:

View of Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, lies just three degrees south of the equator and is permanently snow-capped.
Panorama camp site most unique beehive-shaped igloos.
The BIG 5 all in one area – The Big Five animals are the leopard, lion, elephant, rhinoceros and cape buffalos.
Ngoro Ngoro Crater – The world’s largest caldera.
