Full information about day by day for  14-Day Comfort Safari & Cultural Experience Itinerary

Day 1
Arrival in Arusha

You will be met by an Mowana Safari Adventure representative who will transport you to your accommodation in Arusha after arriving at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) or Arusha Airport (ARK) for domestic flights. Overnight will be spent at the Ilboru Safari Resort, a tranquil lodge in the city’s outskirts with a natural setting and lovely gardens, ready for your safari the next day.

Day 2
Arusha National Park + Walking Safari

Drive to Arusha National Park after breakfast for game watching drives and escorted game walks with an armed game ranger. Mount Meru, Africa’s fourth highest mountain, is located on this green treasure (4,566 m). The park’s breathtaking landscapes, which include the Meru Crater in the west, the Ngurdoto Crater in the south-east, grasslands, and, of course, the alkaline Momella Lakes in the north-east, will enthrall anybody who visits. There are buffalos, zebras, and elephants to be seen. However, Arusha Park is a great place to see birds all year, especially from November to April when the long-distance migrating birds are in the area. Some of these birds will travel all the way from North Africa and Europe to breed in this magical place. With its rich, swampy caldera and sheer crater walls, the Ngurdoto Crater is also known as “Little Ngorongoro.” After a picnic lunch at a nearby location, return to Arusha for dinner and an overnight stay at Ilboru Safari Lodge.

Day 3-4
Arusha to Tarangire National Park

We leave early in the morning after breakfast for Tarangire National Park. The Tarangire River, which passes through the park, is named for it. During the dry season, this “river of warthogs” is the only source of water for wildlife in the area. The vegetation, which includes elephant grass and acacia trees, is fairly dense in certain spots. Elephant families are well-known in the park, and they may often be seen congregating by the river. Giraffe, bushbuck, and hartebeest are also possible sightings. A variety of predators, including lions and leopards, keep a careful eye on these creatures. Tarangire National Park is home to more breeding bird species than any other place on the earth!

After lunch and an extended game drive, we go to Lake Burunge Tented Lodge, one of our Tented partner lodges, for supper and sleep.

Tarangire National Park will be your home for two days.

Day 5
Mto Wa Mbu Walking Around Lake Manyara

After drive to the small village of Mto wa Mbu located beneath the Great Rift Valley escarpment for a guided cultural tour of the village visiting the Banana farms and the rice irrigation farms. Visitors may see Chagga people from the slopes of the Kilimanjaro brew their famous banana beer, mbege, and learn why out of more than 30 varieties of bananas cultivated here only two species are suitable for producing the drink; a farmer from Kigoma extract palm oil from palm trees that he brought from the shores of Lake Tanganyika; appreciate the Sandawe with their fascinating click language, similar to the Khoisan of the Kalahari Desert, making bows & arrows for hunting; interact with the Rangi from Kondoa using the papyrus from the lakes and rivers for weaving beautiful mats and baskets. After lunch drive to Lake Eyasi for dinner and overnight at Lake Eyasi Safari Lodge.

Day 6
Lake Eyasi (Hadzabe tribe) visit

Early in the morning, go on a guided cultural tour of the Hadzabe tribe’s home in Lake Eyasi to learn about and experience their culture. You might like to join hadzabe bushmen on a hunting display by these proud people who rely on hunting and gathering wild fruits and roots for their livelihood. Hadzabe men are among the world’s last remaining hunter-gatherer tribes who live in the scrubby bushland, searching for sustenance on their own and returning home with golden honey, luscious fruit, or hefty wild meat when and if available. Their language is comparable to that of the Bushmen of Southern Africa who speak the Click language, and it is thought that their language still has clicks and pops as no other “click language” does today. You will also have the option to visit a datoga blacksmith tribe, where various decorations are created. Brunch will be served at your lodge. Visit Lake Eyasi in the afternoon. At Lake Eyasi Lodge, you’ll have dinner and spend the night.

Day 7
Elephant Caves + Endoro falls in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area

After breakfast, we head for Karatu, where you will have the opportunity to participate in the walking exercise. This two-hour walking safari will begin with a trip through the forested slopes of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Visit the magnificent elephant caves, which were built by elephants burrowing through hard rock with their tusks to swallow the vitamin-rich dirt. During your trip, you’ll be led into a dense forest by an armed ranger and your guide, where you’ll be able to identify various animal tracks, including elephant tracks. You’ll also go to the Endoro Falls, which have extremely stunning landscape. You can either have a picnic lunch or drive straight to your lodging for a hot lunch, after which you can relax at the lodge and plan an evening coffee walk. After completing the adventure, you will be transferred to Endoro Lodge for supper and an overnight stay.

Day 8-10
Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, travel through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and on to Serengeti National Park, stopping along the way for a game viewing drive. Since 1981, Serengeti has been a UNESCO World Heritage site and a biosphere reserve, making it one of Africa’s oldest and largest national parks. The Serengeti is one of the most well-known wildlife places on the planet, with the highest concentration of wild animals! This world-famous park is a haven for the world’s last remaining yearly animal migration. The Serengeti National Park is Africa’s most famous park, with the highest concentration of game on the continent and millions of wildebeest migrating through it. Serengeti is a Maasai word that means “endless plains,” and it accurately defines the area. Serengeti National Park is Tanzania’s second-largest park, covering almost 15.000 km2 (6,000 sq miles). Serengeti Heritage Luxury Tented Camp provides meals and lodging.

Day 11
Serengeti to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

After an early breakfast drive out of the Serengeti with game viewing drive en-route with an option to visit the Olduvai Gorge where it is believed the remains of early man was discovered by the Leakey’s. Olduvai Gorge is arguably the most important fossil sites in the world. Over thirty miles long and about three-hundred feet deep, the gorge is part of a World Heritage Site called the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. During the months of December to March, one can have good views of the annual wildebeest migration who gather in the short plains of the Ndutu area for grazing. February to mid-march is the calving season. After a packed lunch continue drive to Ngorongoro Conservation Area for dinner and overnight at Rhino Lodge.

Day 12
Ngorongoro Crater to Karatu

After an early breakfast, you will descend the over 600-meter-deep crater.
A massive volcano exploded and crashed in on itself two to three million years ago, creating the Crater. It is well-known for both its geological wonders and for being a natural reserve that is home to some of the continent’s densest large mammal populations. The trip down into the Crater is an adventure in and of itself, and once there, you’ll be surrounded by vast herds of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, and over 500 bird species. The Crater offers the best possibility of seeing endangered black rhinos and lion prides, which can occasionally be seen on the wide grasslands. We go to our comfort partner lodges in Karatu for dinner and sleep at Endoro Lodge after lunch and a lengthy game drive inside the crater.
