10 Days Magical Tanzania Tour

Detailed Itinerary.

Day 1: Arusha, Tanzania

After all border formalities we make our way to our accommodation for the evening. For those who have purchased the optional Serengeti Excursion upgrade package, your local guide will brief you this evening on what to expect for the upcoming days. Enclosed by some of Africa’s most well-known landscapes and National Parks, Arusha is located at the base of Mount Meru – on the eastern edge of the Great Rift Valley’s eastern branch. The city experiences mostly balmy weather due to its location on the hills of Mt Meru. Within close proximity to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Olduvai Gorge, Tarangire National Park and Mount Kilimanjaro, Arusha contains its very own National Park, situated on Mount Meru. The main industry of this area is agriculture. Producers of huge vegetables and flowers send superb produce to Europe.

Meal Plan: (Lunch, Dinner).

Days 2 – 4: Karatu – Ngorongoro Crater Excursion – Karatu, Tanzania.

Today we travel a short distance to Karatu, most of the day is spent making our way closer to the Ngorongoro Crater for our day excursion the following day. Upon arrival in Karatu, you will be briefed on the excursion into the crater. Clients who have purchased the Serengeti Excursion upgrade will be collected and separated from the group for the following 4 days.

The Serengeti is world famous for hosting the biggest and longest overland migration on earth, deemed a ‘natural travel wonder of the world’. During October, almost 2 million herbivores journey from the hills of the north to the plains of the south, crossing through the Mara River in search of food and water. During April, these animals return to the north via the west, once more crossing the Mara River. This spectacle is often called the Circular Migration. More than 250 000 wildebeest are fated to die along the trip from Tanzania to the Masai Mara Reserve in upper Kenya, a total distance of 800 kilometres. Their death is frequently caused due to wounds, exhaustion or by being hunted by the stalking predators that follow close behind the herds. Around 70 bigger mammals and approximately 500 various bird species can be found in this migration. The massive assortment of species is due to the wide range of habitats ranging from river forests, swamps, kopjes, grasslands and woodlands. Some of the common mammals that can be spotted in this area are Blue Wildebeests, gazelles, zebras and buffalo.

The Ngorongoro region makes up part of the ecosystem of the Serengeti and, to the northwest it meets the Serengeti National Park and lies adjacent to the southern plains of the Serengeti. These plains spread to the north into the unguarded Loliondo division and are open to wildlife due to the farming habits of the Masai. Volcanic highlands lie to the south and west of the region whilst the rim of the Great Rift Valley wall defines the southern and eastern boundaries. This wall serves to prohibit animals migrating in these directions.

The next morning we rise early to be collected and transferred to the Ngorongoro Crater where we will spend the day exploring this magnificent piece of land. We make our way back to Karatu in the afternoon. On our last day, we rise early and embark on a hike to the Elephant Caves, through untouched forests and impeccable wildlife. You have the rest of the day to relax or participate in optional activities. The activities must be booked directly with the accommodation prior to arrival.

Meal Plan: (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner).

Day 5: Arusha, Tanzania

Those who participated in the excursion into the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro leave Karatu and will join the truck in Arusha, where we will have time to tell tales of incredible encounters you had in the Park.

Meal Plan: (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner).

Day 6: Bagamoyo, Tanzania

From Arusha we head south towards Bagamoyo which dates back to the East African slave trade. Our accommodation for the night is the Bagamoyo Travellers Lodge which is situated on the beach. This evening we prepare for our excursion to Zanzibar tomorrow.

Meal Plan: (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner).

Days 7 – 9: Stone Town, (Zanzibar Excursion)

We wake up early today in order to depart from Bagamoyo and make our way to Dar es Salaam, where we will board a local ferry that carries us from Dar es Salaam to the capital of Zanzibar, Stone Town. Our first evening is spent in Stone Town exploring the historical and unique architecture. There are also many spice and seafood markets to take a look at. There are a variety of activities to participate in over the next few days. Your guide will be able to assist you with booking these. The following morning we embark on a spice tour with a local guide. Going forth, you have the afternoon free to spend at your leisure. Join one of the many optional activities such as fishing, snorkelling, scuba diving and many more ocean safari options.

Due to the dominant Islam religion in Zanzibar, conservative clothing should be worn to most places except on the beach, where your regular clothing and swimsuits are acceptable. It is recommended that women wear t-shirts and knee-length shorts or skirts in town. The Islamic religion frowns upon the showing of arms above the elbow or legs above the knee. Shoulders should also remain covered and no revealing necklines are acceptable. Men’s clothing is less restrictive, allowing them to wear shirts and shorts. However, on the beach or in our resort, there are no dress codes other than the regular ones adhered to in most pool/public areas.

On the last day of our Zanzibar excursion we explore the stunning Jozani Forest and once again you have the afternoon free for optional activities.

Meal Plan: (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner).

Day 10: Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Today, our travels bring us out of the cool highland area to the hot Indian Ocean coastal city of Dar es Salaam, meaning ‘house of peace’ in Arabic. Dar is Tanzania’s economic and trade capital, but inland, Dodoma remains the official capital city.

Meal Plan: (Breakfast, Lunch).
