Active Outdoor Safari in Tanzania

Highlights

This exciting 10-night itinerary is designed to get you out of the vehicle in some of Tanzania’s best safari destinations. Rest up in Arusha before the real adventure begins in Tarangire National Park – the third largest park in Tanzania. Tarangire is the quintessential safari experience with rolling plains, baobab tress and acacia woodlands. Home to vast herds of elephant, wildebeest and zebra, Tarangire offers a classic African wildlife experience. Make yourself at home at Swala Camp, in the heart of Maasai country. Discover this remote area of the park on game drives for elephant, leopard, and kudu, with their massive spiral horns. Opt to get out of the vehicle to explore more of the grasslands on foot for chance encounters with zebra, waterbuck and impala. Do make sure to check out Swala’s beekeeping preservation project, where you will have the opportunity to meet the participating villagers. It’s one of many conservation projects Swala collaborates on with local villages like Mwika. Regardless of which activity you choose, your knowledgeable guides will provide a wealth of information about the area, its wildlife and history.

Continue to Lake Manyara National Park for one night. Here, delve into the more remote southern portion of the park. Camp is set up along the banks of the Endabash River, a perfect spot for game viewing as wildlife stop for a drink. Stretch your legs with wildlife mountain biking through the park. Admire the views of the escarpment, which form one edge of Africa’s famous Great Rift Valley.

Next up spend one night at the Ngorongoro Crater – the largest unbroken caldera on the planet. Cruise through the hundred-square mile expanse of the famed crater, where it’s possible to spy the elusive black-maned male lion or black rhino. After your morning excursion, make your way directly into the central Serengeti where you can kick back in style at your next camp.

The last part of your journey takes place entirely within the Serengeti ecosystem, one of the ultimate safari destinations. From the Big Five to the Great Migration, the Serengeti is renowned for exceptional game viewing. Here, get out of the vehicle to experience the oft-overlooked scents and sounds of the African bush in remote areas inaccessible to cars. Learn wildlife tracking in one of the most biologically rich ecosystems as you alternate nights between permanent tented camps and mobile walking camps. Mix the speed and breadth of vehicle game-viewing with the thrill of getting to know the wilderness at a slower, more personal pace. This is a unique opportunity for a Serengeti walking safari that few experience.
