Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater & Maasai Village


The Wilderness & Culture Safari

Our Wilderness and Culture Safari is a combination of conventional activities that one expects to do when in Africa and connecting with the native people. Tarangire National Park is home to a large population of elephant herds and colossal baobab trees are scattered across the plains of the savannah. We will proceed to the Maasai Steppe – a landscape that encompasses a vast range of woodlands and magnificent peaks. It is located between Arusha and Tarangire National Park and it is home to the infamous Maasai tribe. We will stop at one of the Maasai villages where we will have the opportunity to marvel at the colourful garments of the locals and discover their ancient traditions. We will also get an insight of their habitual duties and roles. Our descent into the Ngorongoro Crater, which has been awarded the title “Africa’s Garden of Eden”, is another highlight on the fixture. This magnificent scenery is paired with an abundance of species making it the ideal spot for a game drive.

Day 1

Moshi to Tarangire National Park

We leave Moshi early in the morning and proceed to Tarangire National Park, where we will encounter the massive termite mounds and countless baobab trees. The picturesque scenery, the large elephant population and the diverse species of birds – make Tarangire the perfect sanctuary for tranquillity. Tarangire’s wildlife includes elephants, lions, giraffe, warthogs, ostriches, impalas, cheetah, mongoose, buffaloes, and baboons. After the game drive we will depart to the Ngorongoro Crater rim campsite and witness the spectacular sunset.

Day 2

Ngorongoro Crater to Maasai Steppe

We will have a timely start to the day to ensure that we arrive at the Ngorongoro Crater promptly – it is beneficial to leave early as it is a good time to spot animals. We will enjoy a magnificent game drive with a picnic lunch inside the Crater. Migration in and out of the crater is infrequent due to its elevated structure which means there is a high chance of spotting every member of ‘The Big 5’. This powerful group comprises of buffalo, lions, elephants, rhinos, lions and leopards. Nearly three million years ago a colossal volcano exploded and the crater was moulded into the spectacular shape we witness today.

You can also expect to encounter zebra, hippo, wildebeest and hyena roaming around the caldera. Flamingos and geese can be found lounging around the Soda Lake, other birds include storks and vultures. You will be astonished by your guide’s ability to locate hidden animals. We will drive back to the Fanaka campsite where comprehensive camping facilities are available.

Day 3

Maasai Steppe to Moshi

We will travel to the Maasai Steppe for the final element of your journey. You will share a cultural experience with the most renowned tribe in East Africa – the Maasai. The Maasai are highly fascinating due to the fact that they have preserved their culture and still uphold the values of their ancestors. We will have a chance to witness a ritual performance that includes singing and dancing. After an exhilarating day spent with the Maasai tribe we will drive back to Moshi. Transportation to the airport can be arranged on request.

Arusha National Park

Arusha National Park can be reached by means of an easy 60-minute drive north west from Moshi. Despite of closeness of this National Park to Arusha, this National Park is probably one of the least visited, making it a wonderful and rewarding off-the beaten-track excursion. Covering 137 sq km, the Arusha National Park has three major attractions which can all be visited in the course of a day outing.

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is probably the mostly visited of the northern Tanzanian game parks, and retains a real air of undiscovered Africa, particular in the south of the park. Much of the park is grassland together with swamp lands and flood plains, which feed the Tarangire River. Large baobab trees, particularly in the northern section of the park, stand dotted across the landscape dominating the scenery. Many of the trees are hundreds of years old. Elsewhere there is acacia woodland, open bush and groves of palm trees.

Lake Manyara National Park

Covering about 330km², of which about two-thirds is underwater, Lake Manyara National Park is small by African standards. However, it’s also very beautiful and contains a tremendous diversity of habitats and wildlife. Set beneath the spectacular backdrop of the Great Rift Valley’s steep western escarpment, this long, narrow park protects an area between the escarpment and Lake Manyara.

Ngorongoro Crater

The  Ngorongoro conservation area covers 2286sq km and encompasses the volcanic area around the Ngorongoro crater including the still active Oldonyo Lengai, and the famous Olduvai Gorge. The Ngorongoro conservation area is quite simply the most spectacular tourist destination in Africa unequaled in its magnificence its wild life and its atmosphere.Added to the beautiful scenery, the archaeological wealth and the wildlife, is a proud people – the massai- a pastoral tribe.

Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti National Park has probably been the subject of more books, television documentaries, pictures, photos and digital images on African wildlife animals, than any other African national park. Hosting the annual wildebeest migration across its grassy plains – arguably the world’s greatest wildlife animals spectacle – this park is without a doubt a defining image of East Africa and more specifically Tanzania.
