7-day Tanzania Adventure Camping

On our 7-day Tanzania Adventure Camping Safari, you will experience it all starting from fantastic wildlife watching to the impressive land and the lifestyle of the people. You will visit the highlights of North Tanzania such as the Tarangire National Park, Lake Natron, the Serengeti and at the end of your trip the crowning glory; the Ngorongoro Crater. Unique to this safari is the route alongside Lake Natron with its gigantic flamingo colony. Unlike other safaris, it is also possible to travel in and out of the Serengeti along different routes that takes you a little away from the tourist route with a more ‘off the beaten track’ feel and sense of adventure.

Day 1 Arusha – Tarangire National Park
After a short briefing in the morning, you will head off in direction of the Tarangire National Park. The park with its savannah, baobab trees, seasonal swamps is home to huge elephant herds. Animals gather at the life-giving Tarangire River and you should see a selection of mammals ranging from giraffes, bushbucks and hartebeests to zebras and warthogs. The park is also home to buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen now and then but cheetahs are rarely spotted. From the open roof of the safari vehicle you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. In the late afternoon you will leave the park and head to a nearby campsite, where you will spend the night in a tent.
Lunch; Dinner

Day 2 Tarangire Area – Lake Natron
After breakfast you will leave the area around Tarangire National Park and head to the multicultural village of Mto wa Mbu. From here you will travel on a spectacular and very bumpy gravel road along the Rift Valley Escarpment with Ol Doinyo Lengai “the holy mountain” of the Masai in the distance. Today’s destination is the typical Masai village of Ngare Sero in the hot and dusty Rift Valley. In the distance you might see a pink glow from flamingos breeding and feeding on the algae of the alkaline Lake Natron (seasonal and depending on water level). In the afternoon you will join a Masai guide on a walk to a nearby waterfall before you return to the campsite for your overnight.
Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 3 Lake Natron – Serengeti National Park
After an early start, you will travel along adventurous dirt tracks with breath-taking views as your vehicle climbs out of the Rift Valley to reach the grassy plains of the Serengeti by midday. Serengeti means “endless plains” in the language of the Masai and you will see the grassland savannah stretching to the horizon. The Serengeti is the most famous park in Tanzania and it is home to the largest animal migration on the planet – hundreds of thousands of animals trek to find fresh grass and water. You will overnight at a campsite in the northern or central part of the park.
Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 4 Serengeti National Park
The entire day is dedicated to game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. You will either go on a full day game drive or join early morning and afternoon drives in the Seronera area, depending on last night’s stop. Between December and May huge herds of wildebeests and zebras will be seen, with calves and foals being born between January and March. The Seronera area is also the best place to spot the shy and nocturnal leopard. You will spend the night at a campsite in the Seronera area.
Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 5 Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Conservation Area
The morning is set aside for another game drive in the Serengeti and you might spot some creatures that you haven’t seen yet. Animals tend to be more active in the morning before the temperatures soar around midday. After lunch, you will leave the plains of the Serengeti and travel to the highlands of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. You will camp at a campsite directly on the Ngorongoro Crater’s edge with a view over the collapsed volcano. It is a perfect spot to enjoy a sundowner at sunset.
Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 6 Ngorongoro Crater – Mto wa Mbu
Rise and shine! It is up at daybreak to take on the steep path leading down into the 600 m deep crater. The slopes are forested but soon the landscape changes to savannah with the occasional acacia tree here and there. The wildlife in the crater is just breath-taking and with a little luck you might see the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. You should also see warthogs, wildebeests, zebras, hippos and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After an entire morning of game viewing and a picnic lunch in the crater, you will travel to Mto wa Mbu where you will overnight on a campsite.
Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 7 Mto wa Mbu – Arusha
After a leisurely breakfast, you will start your return trip to Arusha, where you will arrive around midday. You will be dropped off in the city centre or at the airport.
