This has to be the best safari itinerary in Tanzania for those who want to see the maximum number of animals in a short amount of time!

First, you will visit Lake Manyara, a magnificent park and bird paradise! From July to September, flocks of flamingos gather for nesting. They spread across the surface of the lake like sea foam, making an image that will imprint in your memory forever. In other periods, there are a huge number of bird species, like pelicans and storks, ibises and cranes, cormorants, and marabous!

Ngorongoro is simply one of the most beautiful and populated parks, and it boasts its own ecosystem. Hence why the crater is included in virtually all safari programs. Don't miss out!

Karen's review for another Altezza Travel tour
“We recommend Altezza Travel for safaris to the Serengeti and to Ngorongoro. They went out of their way to tailor a trip for us to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro, and it was fantastic.The guide/driver, Bakari, was professional, exceptionally knowledgeable about everything, and he is one heck of a good driver. Bakari is a natural at finding animals - he was so clever. We're amazed at the variety of animals we saw at close range.(We spent nearly 25 days on safari in Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe, and we saw the same amount of animals but more variety here in Tanzania with Altezza in a far shorter period of time.)The accommodation was beautiful and overlooked the savanna.Our trip with Altezza was so good that we'll return and spend more time on safaris with them. Tanzania truly has it all and we're fortunate to have selected the best safari company with the best guide!”

Sarah's review for another Altezza Travel tour
“We had an unforgettable experience last week on this tour. We were a group of 4 women with limited to some hiking experience. Anna and Stasia from Altezza were very responsive leading up to our booking. They were very easy and transparent regarding all the booking details. During the trip, our guides Baraka and Gerald were highly professional throughout our trek. They made sure that we were as comfortable as possible. This included all the small things, such as making sure we got enough lights for dinner and bringing more if we needed, as well as the big things, such as making sure that we summited! Baraka and Gerald were highly experienced as guides, and made sure to adjust their walking speeds to the individual needs of our group. They were also very personable, friendly and extremely approachable if we ever had questions (and we had many!). In addition, the rest of the crew (there were 20 people in total), that helped us were all highly attentive and very competent- we could not have done this without them. The food from our chef Justin was delicious - weve never had soup as creamy and eggs cooked the way he makes them- it stood out as unparalleled hiking food! Our server Benson told us really funny stories about his many trips in the mountains while he prepared dinner. The rest of the crew who worked behind the scenes tirelessly made everything seamless! We couldnt have asked for more. Some tips in addition to the other ones you may find online:1. Bring Vaseline - it gets really dry in the mountains so that would really help.2. It also gets very dusty in the mountain, so if you have dust allergies, you might need some medication. Even if you are not allergic to dust, it may be good to bring a bandana or something equivalent to keep off the dust.3. Rent the portable toilet!!! It is much better than the public restrooms, and relatively clean. Much more convenient if you need to go at night.4. Bring an extra roll of toilet paper- you wont need it for the toile if you rent the portable toilet, but it is useful if your nose runs because it gets cold.5. Bring extra hand warmers if you can. In addition to using them on Summit Day, some mornings are also cold. The crew does give you heated rubber bottles for warmth as well- so this is just for extra comfort.6. Bring mouthwash! Some nights are somewhat cold, so you may choose to mouthwash rather than do the full floss/brush. Makes you feel cleaner for sure. Same goes for disposable baby wipes in addition to a camping towel (quick dry so you dont have to use a wet one the next day!)7. Bring extra snacks if you can- the crew never will ask you for food, but we think they really appreciate it when you share. Same goes for anything else you think you can spare. Sharing is caring!8. Ask questions! We learned quite a bit about the mountains and the lives of our entire crew when we did- it was very rewarding learning more about the local culture and language.”

Other Practical InformationThe greater part of your trip you will be spent sitting, so your clothes should be comfortable and made from soft, natural fabrics with as little elastics, laces, belts, or decorations (like huge buttons) as possible. Take into consideration that to see certain animals you will have to start your day early in the morning, and it may be cold outside, so you should not forget to pack some warm clothes. For example, in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area before and after sunset the temperature can fall to 0°C. Please note that tips for guides average about USD 30–50 per day for car safaris Packing List: A longsleeved shirt A warm hoodie or a light jacket A couple of tshirts/undershirts A pair of trousers/shorts Light sneakers/sandals/flipflops Swimming suit/trunks Headwear (preferably a broadbrim, bucket hat, or billed cap) Sunglasses Sunblock (SPF 40+ or higher) Mosquito repellent Antidust mask Reserve camera batteries Keep in mind that during this crosscountry trip there will be pervasive dust entering the vehicle, so when choosing your clothes it is better to wear muted, dirtresistant colors like khaki rather than anything pearlywhite.
