This 9-Day The Spirit Of Kambi Adventures is our most iconic Tanzanian safari tour itinerary as it represents what our company is all about. During this safari trip in Tanzania you will have the chance of, not only visiting all the parks of the Northern Safari Circuit of Tanzania (including 3 nights in the Serengeti which is, for us, the ideal timeframe), but also have fascinating cultural experiences in Maasai land with the Maasai tribe.
Day To Day Itinerary
We will pick you up from your hotel in Arusha at 7;30am and take you to a very special safari park in Tanzania. Tarangire is famous for its diverse landscape with nine different vegetation zones. The Tarangire safari park is particularly known for the abundance of Ancient Baobab trees (the largest trees in the continent) which fill the landscape and dwarf the animals next to them. The river of the park is full of wildlife ranging from a large variety of birds to lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, antelopes and, of course, African elephants. In fact, Tarangire has the largest concentration of elephants in the whole country and provides unique chances to observe the interaction between elephant families. In the afternoon we will still do a game drive before continuing to your accommodation.
Pickup from your accommodation in the early morning for a full day game drive in Lake Manyara National Park. Although small in dimension (205 sq. miles), the park has breathtaking scenery and well famous for its lush acacia forest, giant figs and mahogany trees, as well as to a growing population of baboons and blue monkeys. Permanent residents of this park also include giraffes, elephants, impalas and a huge amount of buffaloes. The lake is also home to a large number of hippos. Some unique facts about this park include the tree climbing lions, flamingos in the lake shore, as well as the Ground Hornbill and the Crested Eagle. The landscapes of Lake Manyara are something that can not be described with words, and the game drives along the lake provide stunning photo opportunities of giraffes and buffaloes in the foreground and the lake (and its flamingos) in the background. During this day, some extra tours are possible, including a bike tour or a boat excursion. In the afternoon, transfer to the lodge or camp for dinner..
Full days in the Serengeti safari Park. We are completely flexible with your preferences and this day will be organized according to your wishes. On every day of the safari tour, your guide will discuss with you the best timings for you, including the game drives and the wake up time. For example, on this day, you could do a morning game drive, return to the lodge or camp for lunch and relaxation and finish with an afternoon game drive, or you could do a full day game drive with picnic lunch.
On this day we suggest a very early wake up in order to do an early morning game drive (when the animals are more active) and see one of the best sunrises you’ll ever witness. It’s really one of the most beautiful experiences to have. After the game drive, we return to the camp for a rewarding brunch and then we’ll proceed to Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the 8th wonder of the Natural World. The crater spreads for 102 sq. miles and has 2.000 ft high walls, making it virtually a Noah’s ark and inhabiting almost every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa. It’s one of the very rare locations in the whole continent where you can witness the black Rhino. The concentration of African wildlife if the greatest in the continent. The crater has a river, several swamps, a soda lake with a great concentration of flamingos, a forest and open plains. It’s also famous for its elephants which are the largest in the world and have huge tusks. This is due to the rich mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses. Ngorongoro Crater is truly a Wonder of the Natural World.
You will reach Ngorongoro in time for a sundowner.
We will start the day after breakfast and leave for 1 hour walk at Mto wa Mbu to experience the life of people over there then after a walk, drive to Masai settlement for a unique visit. You will be welcomed by Masai friendly people with a welcome song. Sing and dance with them and see how they live and share the ideas with them. After a good day, you will spend the night in a special camp set in the Masai settlement.
Today will be a very special and different day. In the morning you will experience how do the Maasai people start the day with their herd, milking their cattle and do other activities. Return to the camp for breakfast, afterwards we take lunch at the camp then drive back to Arusha for drop off or transfer to Kilimanjaro (JRO) for your next departure.
