Highlights of the Tanzania Safari

Arusha

The city is located right at the foot of Mount Meru. Situated close by Mount Kilimanjaro, the Manyara, Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro National Parks, Arusha is the ideal place to start off a Tanzanian safari adventure. And just to the north, on the slopes of Mount Meru, lies the Arusha National Park.

Lake Manyara National Park

With the lake on the east and the Manyara Escarpment on the west, Lake Manyara National Park boasts breathtaking views and is made up of a wide range of habitats: Acacia woodlands, water forests, baobab-strewn cliffs, algae-streaked hotsprings, swamps, and of course the lake itself. Due to the variety of the environment, it is able to support a large number of animal species and incredible birdlife. Here, you can find the largest concentration of baboons in the world. And you might be lucky enough to spot the phenomenon of tree-climbing lions.

Serengeti National Park

Together with Kenya’s Maasai Mara, Serengeti National Park forms one of Africa’s most famous wildlife areas. The image of acacia trees dotting endless grass plains epitomises Africa for many. The annual wildebeest migration through the Serengeti and Maasai Mara is earth’s largest mass movement of land mammals 0 more than a million animals migrate yearly to follow the rains and feeding grounds. Also home to the park are large lion prides, elephants, giraffes, gazelles, eland, and many more.

Ngorongoro Crater

The World Heritage Site is a must-visit when on safari in Tanzania. Located on the eastern edge of the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater was once a volcano which collapsed in on itself millions of years ago, creating a crater that houses its own unique ecosystem and incredible wildlife. water lake. You are likely to see lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and many of the plains herbivores such as; the wildebeest, the Thomson’s gazelle, the zebra and the reedbuck, as well as thousands of flamingos wading in the shallows of Lake Magadi – the soda lake at the crater’s base. Despite its steep walls, there’s a considerable amount of movement of wildlife in and out of the crater – mostly to the Serengeti, since the land between the crater and Lake Manyara is intensively farmed. The Ngorongoro Crater remains a favoured spot for wildlife because there’s a permanent water supply and grassland on the crater floor.

Pre-Tour Information

Departure

Get some rest on the first day of your arrival – you may need some time to adjust to a different time zone. Rather arrive a day early to rest and start off your tour refreshed and ready for adventure!

Currency

When you need to exchange your currency, avoid any exchanges on the street or in other areas that may seem suspect. Always note that even when people approach you with an, e.g., 50% premium exchange rate offer, this exchange is considered part of the black market and is illegal! Hotels, Camps and Lodges can change money, but sometimes the rate is slightly lower. We recommend that you visit an accredited Bureau de Change.

Credit Cards

Credit cards such as Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted in most areas as well as at bigger hotels and lodges.

Telephone

In most areas you can call internationally – however please note that some of the smaller areas may not have these facilities and international phone calls are costly. Also, built up areas and towns do have cell-phone reception!

Passports, Documents and Valuables

Please make sure that you keep your passport, documents and any other valuables with you at all times! We recommend that a copy of these documents should be made and kept in another safe place in case something happens to the originals. Never leave valuables alone and remember you are on safari, so expensive and valuable jewellery is not necessary.

Safety

Every area (any where in the world) can be unsafe at times. Please take common precautions at all times and never walk alone, especially at night or in run-down areas!

Packing

Remember to always check the amount of luggage you are allowed to take on the plane as well as on the Safari Vehicle – they may differ. We recommend that a soft bag is used instead of a hard suitcase as it’s preferable on safari. Most air flights allow for 20kgs and our scheduled safaris are limited to 15kgs per person. Don’t forget to put luggage tags on your suitcases (for the airplane and the safari).

Luggage and Medication

Please be advised that you should put any medication that you need (e.g.: diabetes medication) into your hand luggage, even with the strict regulations, airlines will allow that as long as you have a letter from your doctor.

What to wear

You are on safari and out in the bush so make sure that you are comfortably dressed with comfortable shoes. Always have a mix of clothing including; summer clothes, light raincoat, warm top and a hat.

Food and drink

Africa is famous for its fruit and fresh vegetables – which can be enjoyed all around Africa. Fruit and Vegetables should be peeled before eating. Drinks (including spirits) and cigarettes can be bought in most areas but are normally quite expensive.

Anti-malaria medication

A lot of areas in Africa are affected by Malaria – we strongly recommend that you take your anti-malaria medication. Take your medication exactly as its prescribed and directed, don’t skip any medication! At the end of your safari, if at any time you develop influenza symptoms please consult your doctor immediately.

Power and Electricity

Most places (hotels, lodges) have electricity. But we always recommend that you should take a flash light with you on safari. Always remember if you plug something in (e.g.: One of your appliances) there may be a different voltage! The usual voltage is 220-240 AC. If you appliance does not match this voltage you need to bring a converter with as some lodges may not have a converter for you to use…

Gratuities

Tipping is not included in meals unless there is a service charge included in the bill – then you don’t need to tip. Normal tipping is 10% of the bill for drinks and food. Tipping for guides and drivers are always appreciated and range from US$5 and US$10 per day.

Your journey begins in Arusha, overnighting at the African Tulip. Situated at the foot Mount Meru, Arusha is a bustling city with a mix of markets, restaurants, colonial buildings and modern conveniences. Known as the Gateway to the Northern Safari Circuit, it is the perfect location to launch into your East African expedition.
With the Lake on its east and the Manyara Escarpment to its west, the Lake Manyara National Park offers breath taking views and a wide variety of habitats. Spend the day exploring Acacia woodlands, water forests, baobab strewn cliffs, algae-streaked hot springs, swamps and the lake itself. An overnight at the eco-friendly Karatu Simba Lodge, situated next to the Ngorongoro Forest, provides easy access to the national park where one hopes to sight the famous tree climbing lions of Tanzania.
Kisura Serengeti Camp welcomes you for the next two days, your base for adventure. The Serengeti ecosystem holds the largest mammal migration in the world, consequently also renowned for its prolific lion population. The high diversity of habitats boasts an abundance of species – a visual feast for safari aficionados. Such biodiversity also provides a haven for birds, with over 500 species inhabiting the various forests and woodlands. Kisura Serengeti Camp is a walk on the wild side with a gourmet twist – a tented campsite fringed with luxury.
Ngorongoro Crater – a bucket list safari finale. Originally a volcano, this three-million-year-old caldera is one of the most densely populated wildlife areas on earth. The crater walls provide protection for a wide array of animals – from black rhino, giant tusked elephant, black-maned lion as well as flamingos. An estimated 25 000 large mammals are resident to the crater – a dream hunting ground for the healthy carnivore population. Fever and fig tree forests provide shade for wildlife, while towering euphorbia compliment the backdrop of the crater walls. A large soda lake and fresh water springs quench the thirst of the inhabitants, the life source for this bowl of plenty. Lemala Ngorongoro tented camp is located in an ancient acacia forest, close to the rim of the crater – easy access to this animal Eden.
Enjoy a final hearty breakfast in the bush before being transferred to the airport for your onward journey.
