Wild Experiences
A Lovely Day With Friends

Semi-Luxury, Mid-Range Safari – 9 nights

$7,620.00per pax

Has it always been your dream to go on an African Safari – to see wild lions, elephants, giraffes, and The Great Migration of wildebeest around the Serengeti?  Have you ever wondered what it’s like to have a Maasai chief invite you to witness a traditional tribal ceremony and into his home?   We welcome you to our Tanzania, where we can show you all these things.

If you are a smart traveler on a budget and choose to be cost conscioius when possible, don’t let the price of a full-luxury safari frighten you away from the adventure of a lifetime!  There are other options midway between the dreaded “budget” options and the many times out-of-reach safari prices.   See our recent blog post “Budget vs. Luxury Safaris Revealed” on the differences among these categories.

In this sample itinerary, we feature properties which may be considered very high quality, but without the extreme attention to detail offered at full-luxury resorts.  You’ll enjoy the exact transportation and guiding as featured on all our tours, the only differnce in this option is the property at which you’ll stay.

With vast wilderness areas that teem with big game, interesting cultures and some of the most iconic landscapes on the planet, northern Tanzania offers a safari experience like nowhere else.  Here is where you will see:

  • The Serengeti
  • Ngorongoro Crater
  • Lake Manyara
  • Tarangire National Park
  • Olduvai Gorge
  • Rich Ancient Tanzanian Culture

We can help plan the perfect Tanzanian safari just for you.  We will tailor the experience to exactly what you want for as many days as you want.  Adjustments can be made to the itinerary & pricing shown.

  1. Day of Arrival Arrive at Kilimanjaro Airport

    Resting at the foot of Mount Meru, the sprawling city of Arusha is known as the safari capital of northern Tanzania. It serves as an excellent base from which to explore the remarkably scenic surrounding area which includes majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, as well as the Manyara, Tarangire and Ngorongoro National Parks. Arusha is a good spot to take a day or two off from the safari circuit as it features a temperate climate and lush surrounds. Visitors can look forward to exploring the wildlife-abundant Serengeti National Park; the magnificent Arusha National Park; and taking on the challenge of climbing Mount Meru, Africa’s fifth highest mountain.

  2. Days 2 & 3 Lake Burunge-Manyara

    Set within the ecologically important migratory corridor of Manyara and Tarangire, Lake Burunge-Manyara is one of three major lakes in Tanzania’s Manyara region that provide incredible game viewing opportunities. Lookout decks along the shore offer close-up encounters with the wild animals which come to drink or hunt, as well as with 300 bird species. Game drives, guided walks, canoeing, and cultural tours to the neighbouring Mbugwe and Maasai villages are just some of the activities visitors can look forward to. Neighbouring Tarangire National Park is another highlight of the area, only 30 kilometres away.

The town offers a variety of activities including browsing the bustling marketplace, sampling beer at a local brewery, visiting a traditional homestead, or taking a guided walk through the Ngorongoro Forest in search of waterfalls and caves. Whether you are looking for cultural tours, hiking and biking opportunities, a chance to enjoy an authentic rural Tanzania experience, or simply a break between safari game drives, this underrated town has plenty to offer.
