tanzania-african-safari-tours

Lake Manyara N.P.
Breakfast will be served early in the morning, followed by a game drive to ‘Mto wa Mbu.’ You will discover a melting pot of cultures, and during your visit to Tanzania Safari Tours, you will get a good sense of the village’s social side – the farms and milling machines, the schools, markets, and churches. You will most likely visit to the Tanzania Safari Tours village banana plantation, as well as a youth art project and a wood workshop where skilled Makonde tribe members carve intricate figurines, masks, and household objects. You could also go to the local market. The Tanzania Safari Tours duration is flexible, but it usually lasts 2–3 hours. Following the village walk, you will be served a delicious local Swahili meal, which you (can) prepare with the help of a highly respected local woman. Then visit Lake Manyara to see baboons, flamingos, water birds, long-crested eagles, grey-headed kingfishers, and elephant families moving through the forest. Lake Manyara’s famous population of tree-climbing lions is also reason enough to include a visit to this park in the itinerary.

TOURS DEPARTING BETWEEN JUNE AND OCTOBER WILL VISIT TARANGIRE N.P. ON DAY 2.

Journey Time: 1 hour from Tarangire to ‘Mto wa Mbu’

Meal Plan: Breakfast, Local Lunch, Dinner

Accomodation: Lake Manyara Tortilis Camp

Tarangire National Park
After an early breakfast, you will depart for Tarangire National Park for a game drive. Elephant herds can be seen, as well as leopards, zebras, impalas, warthogs, eland, buffalo, waterbuck, and lions. Birders will have plenty to see as well, with over 500 different bird species present. Outside of the Serengeti, Tanzania Safari Tours has the highest concentration of wildlife. It is also the only place in Tanzania where the oryx and gerenuk can be seen on a regular basis. Then, after a parked lunch picnic stop in the park, go on an afternoon game drive before returning to your Sangaiwe Tented Lodge accommodation.

Journey Time: 2 hours to the park entrance

Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 3

The Serengeti

tanzania-african-safari-tours

You will have an early breakfast and then drive to the Serengeti park, stopping for an en-route safari. The park is divided into three sections: the Serengeti plains, the Western corridor, and the Northern Serengeti, where you can see millions of wildebeest and zebra migrate during the Great Migration, following the ancient rhythm of Africa’s seasons. Then proceed to Serengeti Tortilis camp, a tented camp where you can view the African natural wonders in Tanzania Safari Tours.

Journey Time: 2 hours to the park entrance

Meal Plan: Breakfast, Packed Lunch, Dinner

Accomodation: Serengeti Tortilis Camp

Day 4

Game drives in Serengeti National Park

tanzania-african-safari-tours

You will have an early breakfast and then go on a full day game drive to see the big cats. There are thousands of lions in the Serengeti, and you have a good chance of seeing cheetahs, though they are difficult to spot. The Serengeti rarely disappoints when it comes to leopards. Then stop for a picnic lunch in a nice spot in the Tanzania Safari Tours, then continue with a game drive before returning to the lodge for relaxation and dinner in the late afternoon.

Optional activity: Hot Air Balloon Safari Serengeti
This optional activity costs US$ 800 per person in Tanzania Safari Tours.
Fly over the famous Serengeti National Park in a hot air balloon. This could be the most beautiful area on the planet for a balloon ride. There are no power lines or fences, and there are only a few roads. When you leave your lodge or camp in the morning, your Balloon Safari adventure begins. It’s still dark, and you might see some nocturnal animals on your way to the launch site. You meet your pilot and see your balloon being inflated and prepared when you arrive. Because space is limited, this is a one-of-a-kind and exclusive experience. The balloon safari lasts approximately one hour, depending on the weather. This Tanzania Safari Tours adventure will come to a close with a champagne bush breakfast in the middle of the park!

Meal Plan: Breakfast, Packed Lunch, Dinner

Accomodation: Serengeti Tortilis Camp

Day 5

Game drives in Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater

tanzania-african-safari-tours
Breakfast is served early in the morning, followed by an en-route game drive out of the Serengeti towards the Ngorongoro Crater, which has the most wildlife throughout the year and a good chance of spotting ‘The Big 5′: lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and leopard. Other wildlife includes the serval cat, cheetah, jackal, Grant’s and Thompson’s gazelle, flamingo and bat-eared foxes, and over 400 different bird species. Then, after a picnic lunch, go on an afternoon game drive before returning to your accommodation for dinner and a night’s sleep.

Some Frequently Asked Questions

Travel Updates for Tanzania in 2021
You will be accepted if your Covid-19 PCR test is negative 72 hours before arrival, and you must complete and submit a Travelers Surveillance Form 24 hours prior to your arrival. At the airport, travelers will fill out a health form and will be screened for Covid-19 with a possible rapid test for $25 USD.
Safari in Tanzania - how many days is enough?
A Tanzania safari should last at least a week. It can take time to travel around wilderness areas that are larger than New Jersey. The wilderness offers a variety and abundance that can’t be found anywhere else. Tanzania can be explored in ten days if you follow the travel itinerary carefully.
Do I have a chance of seeing my favorite animal?
Although wildlife encounters are never guaranteed, Tanzania is famous for the amazing wildlife sightings it offers. The great wildebeest migration takes place in Tanzania every year, with almost two million animals marching around the Serengeti. As is the case with most Tanzanian parks, the Serengeti is full of big cats. Lions, leopards, and cheetahs are in abundance, unlike anywhere else. You may see live hunting scenes because predators have so much prey available to them.
How Does a Day on Safari Look Like?
The daily experience varies depending on the park. During a game drive in the Serengeti or Ruaha, you’ll explore the park for the entire day with a packed lunch. Smaller parks have an itinerary similar to other safari regions, with different morning and afternoon activities. After lunch and rest at the camp, following are three activities in the afternoon: swimming, walking, and birdwatching.
Can I travel to Tanzania safely?
The country of Tanzania is one of the safest in Africa. The country has a stable government and no military involvement. As there is poverty and petty theft in towns and cities, you will need to take precautions regularly. A guide will always accompany you, and you will rarely be in an urban setting for an extended period of time. Especially in remote areas such as safari camps and lodges, small theft is virtually unheard of. There are no fences separating people from wildlife, so it is essential to follow the regulations imposed by guides and staff. There are usually restrictions regarding walking off camp and getting out of a safari vehicle unless instructed otherwise.
Travel Insurance
Now that you’ve booked your dream vacation, make sure you’re protected with travel insurance. Your vacation can be ruined by a variety of factors. Travel insurance coverage protects you against unforeseen disasters such as medical emergencies, inclement weather, and cancellations.
Tanzania Health Information

You are required to produce a certificate proving you have been vaccinated against yellow fever. Further, all necessary vaccinations must be documented by your health practitioner on an official vaccination record. This document must be carried throughout the tour. A malaria prophylactic drug should be taken by every visitor. Additionally, you should bring mosquito repellent. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for information on current requirements, inoculations, and personal recommendations!
Normally, you need the following vaccinations (but you should always consult your doctor):
-Yellow Fever (you must have this can even be checked on arrival, especially when flying within East Africa)
-DTP
-Hepatitis
-For Malaria you need to take tablets, Malarone or Lariam. Malarone is mostly used (please always consult a doctor).
-Because hygiene is not as high as in your home country, we recommend bringing disinfectant cream with you. Instead of drinking tap water, always drink bottled water.

Upon arrival
Our guide will be waiting for you at the airport when you arrive. In safari, we use specially made safari vehicles, allowing us to see the wildlife better. Safari vehicles (and small aircrafts) have limited luggage space. As a result, it is recommended to travel with light bags since bulky bags will overload and may be difficult to transport.
Tanzania Visa
If you need a visa, you can purchase one through the Tanzanian embassy or consulate in your home country in advance. Alternatively, visas can be obtained at the Kilimanjaro / Dar es Salaam International Airport or at any overland border. A single entry visa costs USD 50 per person. You are responsible for arranging your visa(s) correctly and on time. If anything is unclear, we will be happy to assist. Please note that this information is subject to change! Whenever in doubt, you should contact the Tanzanian embassy in your country.
Financial information
ATMs can be found in most large cities. Outside cities, it is extremely difficult to pay with a credit card or travelers’ checks because they are not widely accepted. The US dollar is traditionally the preferred hard currency. For your daily expenses and tips, we advise you to bring dollar bills. You should not use dollar bills older than 10 years.
Tanzania Currency Information
The Tanzanian Shilling is the currency. It is a good idea to check exchange rates before leaving for your destination. It is important to note that bigger cities will offer a better exchange rate.
AMREF Flying Doctors
Consider becoming a member of Flying Doctors. As a member, you have access to an air ambulance and medical care if needed. AMREF Flying Doctors offers two types of coverage (Annual and Tourist). You can choose between the Maisha Silver (Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar), Maisha Gold (Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi) or Maisha Platinum (Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan and Ethiopia). Please check out the AMREF Flying Doctors website for more information and to become a member.
Language in Tanzania
Kiswahili is the national language of Tanzania, but English is widely spoken and is the main language used by tourists.
Tanzania Climate
Tanzania is a tropical country with high temperatures along the coast and at lower altitudes (especially in the south). In general, the Northern part is higher altitude (with the exception of Lake Natron and Tarangire). There is generally cooler air around the Ngorongoro Crater, Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru and Arusha.
When to visit Tanzania ?
Tanzania can be visited any time of year, though some places may be more difficult to visit during the rainy season. With the average day temperature of 30 degrees centigrade, the climate is tropical. The coast is hot and humid. In the central plateau, hot days are followed by cool nights. Around Arusha and Ngorongoro, the climate is temperate and cooler (especially) between June and September. It rains between March and May as well as between November and half-December. A rainy season means that it rains more frequently, but not every day and not all the time.
What to wear Tanzania ?
Temperatures are generally warm to hot during the day, so bring light clothing. The evenings can be chilly at higher altitudes, so carry a light sweater as well. Mountain hikers will be exposed to cold temperatures and should pack accordingly. Make sure you bring a hat, sunglasses, and a waterproof jacket. Black and dark blue clothes (because they attract tsetse flies) should be avoided during safaris. If you are planning to walk in the forest, please wear a sturdy walking shoe, and if you intend to visit a community or local people, please wear appropriate clothing. An example would be a woman wearing a long skirt and a top that covers her shoulders.
What to bring ?
It is mandatory to travel with a valid passport (valid for at least 3 months after re-entry) and to check the visa requirements for all countries you are planning on visiting before you depart. When visiting game reserves and national parks, we recommend carrying binoculars and field guides. For wildlife photography, a zoom lens is necessary (70-300 or more). Ensure you have enough memory cards on hand. The city can provide you with toiletries and other necessities, and a torch (flashlight) can prove to be very useful.
Electricity in Tanzania
You should bring an international adapter with you for your electric equipment. Tanzania uses the British system. Most lodges allow you to charge your batteries.
Driving in Tanzania
Tanzanians drive on the left-hand side of the road. Traveling with a knowledgeable 4×4 driver/guide is advised for people with no prior experience of African roads, rather than self driving. All our guides are trained in “Defensive Driving”.
Stopover Points
It is important to keep in mind that washrooms along the road may not meet European standards, for example, squatting toilets, no flushing toilets, or no toilet paper. T.I.A. This Is Africa, as the locals say.
Facilities and accommodations

When traveling on a medium to low budget, bathroom facilities and accommodations may be more basic. It is important to note that the water reserves in eco lodges are limited and most rooms do not have power sockets; however, you can always charge your devices at the reception.

Tipping
The tip will always be appreciated. In hotels and restaurants, it is customary to tip 5-10%. The tips of guides, drivers, and carriers are always appreciated. Based on group size, number of days, and your satisfaction, carriers may charge USD 1-3 per day, and drivers/guides may charge USD 5-15 per day.
Further information about Tanzania
The most comprehensive guidebooks for Tanzania are Lonely Planet and Bradt Travel Guide. The best guidebooks for wildlife are the Lonely Planet’s ‘Watching Wildlife East Africa’ and the Bradt’s ‘East African Wildlife’. The best birding guidebook is ‘birds of East Africa’. It is advisable to get the most recent version.
