What to Expect

Tanzania is arguably the best safari destination in the world.

It’s the largest country in East Africa and is made up of amazing landscapes and diverse ecosystems.

Seeing African animals in the wild is an incredible experience, but it can also be an intimidating one.

There are so many unknowns for a first-time safari-goer. Pamoja Kilimanjaro & Safaris team will make sure your dreams become reality

Itinerary

Day 1Arrive In Tanzania

Arrive any at Kilimanjaro International Airport you will meet us at the arrival point with the signboard written your names on it.

We will arrange a pickup transfer from the airport to Arusha at Masailand Safari Lodge to prepare for your safari adventure.

We will gather in the hotel for a pre-safari briefing and an equipment check.

We will also confirm you have the appropriate mandatory medical coverage and travel insurance.

Dinner and overnight at Masailand Safari Lodge: Bed, Dinner, and Breakfast.

Day 2Arusha To Ngorongoro Crater

Today we visit the largest intact volcanic crater in the world, the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater. At more than 2,000 feet deep and 12 miles in diameter, the Ngorongoro Crater has one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. 30,000 animals make their home in this crater, making it an ideal place for sightings of the ‘big 5′ – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo, and leopard. We enjoy a game drive and picnic lunch in the crater, also known as the ’8th Wonder of the World’.

Dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro Simba Campsite: Full board.

Day 3Ngorongoro Crater To Empakaai Crater

After breakfast, we drive to Olmoti Crater for a half-day walk. Often we meet Maasai on the way. We walk to the waterfalls at the crater for a picnic lunch. In the afternoon we drive to our base camp at Empakaai Crater Rim (If you have an extra day this part of the journey could also be done on foot.) You will experience the serenity and quiet beauty of this wild spot. Surrounding the lake are many springs, where the wildlife is plentiful. In the lake, there are many flamingos.

Dinner and overnight at Empakaai Campsite: Full board.

Day 4Rift Valley Scarp

Dawn rises and our lofty position affords a great sunrise. As we take breakfast our camp crew break camp and depart to send the camp ahead with donkeys. We then set off hiking with Maasai guides following a route that takes us through picturesque Maasai villages and rolling hills. Lunch can be taken on the route as a picnic or if guests are very fit a late lunch can be had in camp. In the late afternoon a hike up to a nearby viewpoint is highly recommended and a great place for sundowners.

Dinner and overnight at Engaresero Campsite: Full board.

Day 5Empakaai Crater To Olmoti Crater

Today we walk from Empakaai to Acacia Campsite. We descend the outer hills of the Great Rift Valley, walk through the open plains of the Embulbul depression, and pass through Nairobi village. We again have the opportunity to meet the local Maasai. Ol Doinyo Lengai and Mount Meru are seen along the way. Donkeys carry our luggage or it will be shuttled by car.

Dinner and overnight at Engaresero Campsite: Full board.

Day 6Walking To Oldonyo Lengai Mountain

Today we walk to Oldonyo Lengai, the single active volcano mountain in Tanzania. The name means the Holy Mountain or the mountain of God in Maasai. The steep trail will lead us down into the Rift Valley escarpment. After 5-6 hours of walking, we reach the foot of the inspiring mountain. Here you can decide if you want to camp at the Chini Ya Mlima campsite, or want to proceed to the Engaresero campsite, which is much more comfortable (showers!) and less hot both campsites are in the Lake Natron area.

After hot lunch at the camp proceed to Lake Manyara for a night.

Dinner and overnight at Migunga Tented Camp: Full board.

 

Day 7Game Drive In Lake Manyara National Park

We depart from your lodge in Manyara and proceed to Lake Manyara National Park. Although small in size, this park is one of the most diverse reserves in the country. Lake Manyara covers two-thirds of the park. At the backdrop is the wall of the Great Rift Valley, before which lies the groundwater forest, areas of open grassland near the lake foreshore, and the Soda Lake. We enjoy a picnic lunch in this area, which consists of open grassy areas, hot springs, dense woodlands, and steep mountainsides. Lake Manyara National Park is a birding paradise that has more than 350 species of bird. The park is also famed for its unique and elusive tree-climbing lions.

Dinner and overnight at Masailand Safari Lodge: Bed, Dinner, and Breakfast.
