On this safari, you will have a chance of interacting with one of the most exciting cultures in Africa - The bushmen culture. Combine this with wildlife, where you might see the hunting predators and the migration, this may be the best safari experience you will ever have.

You will be visiting Serengeti National Park, Tarangire National Park and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area during this safari trip.

One interesting thing about this product is that we are trying to get you out of the safari vehicle and walk, learn about medicinal plants and animal tracks. The walk and the hunt in Eyasi will make the guest get in touch with the bushmen culture.

You will also see the Big Five (Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo, Rhino) on this trip.

Please refer to the itinerary section for day-by-day activities.
Day 1 Tarangire National Park 8 hours Luxury Tented Camp

In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel and after a short briefing, you will be taken to the Tarangire National Park. The park with its endless tree savannah including the impressive baobab trees and seasonal marshes, is also home to the largest elephant herds in northern Tanzania.

In addition to elephants you are also likely to spot giraffes, buffaloes, lions, zebras, gnus and other types of antelopes and gazelles. Upon arrival at the park, your driver will open the roof of the vehicle and the extensive wildlife viewing will begin. Lunch will be taken at a picnic spot and in the afternoon you will get to see more of this amazing and beautiful park.

In the late afternoon you will arrive at River camp, located outside of the park for your overnight stay.


Lunch; Dinner at Tarangire River Camp

Day 2 Seronera Area of the Serengeti 10 hours

After breakfast you will depart towards the Rift Valley, passing through Mto Wa Mbu and Karatu, in the cooler regions of the crater highlands. You will enter the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and stop for a short look into the crater from a viewing platform.

Continuing your journey around the crater, you will descend the other side, enjoying your free “African massage” on the bumpy road, passing Maasai villages on your way to the Serengeti National Park. At the Naabi Hill entrance gate you can walk to a viewpoint with spectacular views across the plains of the Serengeti savannah. You will then continue towards the Seronera Area in the central part of the Serengeti. The park offers a multitude of wildlife including the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard.

Late in the afternoon you will arrive at Serengeti Tortilis Tented Camp. The camp is in a secluded area, in the heart of the bush and the stars at night are breathtaking. Lunch will be enjoyed en-route.

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 3 Game drive in Serengeti National Park 8 hours Luxury Tented Camp

Following breakfast, you will spend the whole day on a game drive in the Serengeti National Park and have lunch at a picnic spot en-route. Depending upon the time of year, you might even have the chance to witness the great migration with hundred thousands of wildebeests, zebras and Thompson gazelles.

During the small rainy season in October and November, you will typically see these herds moving from the Kenyan Maasai Mara through the northwest of the Serengeti to the plains in the south. After the great rainy season in April, May and June, the herds slowly travel back through the western and north-western part of the Serengeti.

With fluctuations in rainfall, this timetable can of course change, resulting in the animals migrating during different times and routes. Your guide will try his outmost to find the animals and will make sure that you can see the animals from the best spot in the national park. Naturally, the migration also attracts predators and with luck you might see a kill in action. You will spend another night at the Serengeti Tortilis Camp

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Attention:
Please note, that should you travel between the beginning of January and mid-March, you will stay at the Kati Kati Ndutu Tented Camp. This camp is also situated in the Serengeti National Park but closer to the border of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in the Ndutu Area.

Staying at a camp in the Ndutu Area during this time increases your chances of seeing the famous migration as the herds can either be on the Serengeti or Ngorongoro side.

Day 4 Game drive in the Ngrongoro Crater 10 hours

After breakfast at daybreak, you will start early on your outward journey from the Serengeti back to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, leaving behind the beautiful Seronera Valley. As predators are livelier in the cooler hours of the day, you might even see them in action.

Lunch will be taken en-route at a designated picnic spot. On reaching the crater’s edge, the 19 km diameter caldera opens up before you in all its stunning glory and you will descend into the crater on an adventurous trail.

This World Heritage Site is seasonally home to over 25,000 animals in including a wide variety of birds, hyenas and the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. Exiting the crater on a different ascent road, you will drive to Karatu, where you will spend the night at the Karatu Acacia Farm Lodge, a former working farm.

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 5 Gibb's Farm 7 hours Luxury Tented Camp

After breakfast we will drive to the Gibbs farm gate and have bit of exercise to walk in the forest up to Elephant cave where Elephants come for salt leak. It’s one of the biggest salt leaks in Africa together with the once found around Mt Elgon in Kenya.

Again this walk is very good early in the morning especially for birders since all the birds are very active. Lunch at Gibbs farm.

After lunch we will drive to the south of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, to Tanzania's largest Soda Lake. The remote region is seldom visited by travelers and is home to the Hadzabe Bushmen and the Datoga tribe.

Here you can have a much truer picture of tribal life than the more tourist areas. Hadzabe Bushmen are traditional hunters-gatherers who speak a {click} language similar to the Bushmen of South Africa. The men hunt early in the morning and afternoon with bow and arrow. Poison arrow is used for larger animals and non-poison arrow used for small game and birds. The women gather wild fruit, roots and tubers.

In the afternoon we are going to walk along the soda lake for some flamingoes sighting.

Dinner and overnight Kisimangeda Tented Camp.

Day 6 Hunting with Bushmen

Leave the camp at around five in the morning with a local guide and find one of their camp and join them for hunting. This is the most exciting cultural experience you can have in Africa. After hunting you go back to their camp where you can try how good you are with arrows by target shooting with them.

Then drive to the blacksmith village to see how they make their arrow from the Datonga tribe and how the two tribes interact. Brunch at the camp and drive back to Arusha.
