12 Days and 11 Nights Tanzania Family Safari

http://www.warriorexpeditionstz.com/images/family-safari.jpg

The Serengeti is legendary. A perfect spot for the whole family including kids (Children) to tour or just trek. A Tanzania family safari offering the best view and best holiday adventure, perfect for an Africa vacation. Here on Tanzania’s Great Plains, herds of wildebeest traverse the savannah in enormous numbers, while thousands of antelope and gazelle are ever-present. Giraffes lope among the acacia trees, while the big cats race after prey.

Recommended time for this safari:
All year round

Day 1:  Arusha Tanzaniahttp://www.warriorexpeditionstz.com/images/ngaresero-mountain-lodge.jpg

On arrival in Tanzania, you are met by your Warrior Expeditions Tanzania guide and transferred to your Hotel. The drive from the airport to the lodge is about 50 mins. The Ngaresero Lodge, set among tropical gardens on a former coffee plantation with Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru as a backdrop. Overnight at Ngaresero Mountain Lodge. Dinner, breakfast included 

Day 2: Arusha National Park

An early morning will immerses us in the African wild we always dreamed about. The topography of this small park is amazingly varied including grassy plains, montane forest, volcanic craters, swamps, and saline lakes. On clear days we have excellent views of Mount Meru and of Mount Kilimanjaro. We can choose to game drive, to go on a game walk escorted by an armed ranger, or to do a canoe ride on one of the soda lakes. We hope to see giraffe, buffalo and black and white colobus monkeys, as well as some of the shy forest antelope – bushbuck, red duiker and maybe suni. overnight at Ngaresero Mountain Lodge. Breakfast, lunch, dinner included 

Day 3 & 4: Arusha & Tarangire National Park

After breakfast in Arusha, you will be driven to Tarangire National Park, the third largest national park in Tanzania. There will be many opportunities for game viewing as we drive through the park. After a stop for lunch at Tarangire sopaLodge, you will have time to unpack and maybe rest before the afternoon game drive. Tarangire contains a range of ecosystems from grassland and woodlands in the north, to scrub and wetlands further south. The Tarangire river cuts through the park and empties into Lake Burunge in the west. Tarangire boasts one of the largest and most conspicuous elephant populations in East Africa. There are large family groups with many calves being born each year as the population continues to recover from the devastating effects of poaching in the eighties. You will see herds of elephants and experience close contact with the matriarchs, the babies, teenagers, and bulls. Your close contact will help you in understanding these incredible animals. Spend several hours surrounded by the herds and you cannot help but feel their wisdom. Tarangire is also known for its abundant baobab trees, most of which are over 400 years, old and the beautiful landscape. Overnight at Tarangire Sopa Lodge. Dinner, breakfast, lunch included

This morning after breakfast we drive to Lake Manyara National Park. We may do some shopping or stop for lunch before continuing to Lake Manyara. Much of the northern part of the park is fed by underground water from the Ngorongoro Highlands and as a result is covered in dense forest vegetation, giving the appearance of a tropical jungle. This forest is ideal habitat for elephant, bushbuck, blue monkey, and huge troops of olive baboon. Some parts are dry bush land attracting zebra, impala and giraffe, while the lakeshore provides another habitat, perfect for flamingos and other shore birds. Today we will stay at Lake Tloma Mountain Lodge. Dinner, breakfast, lunch included

Day 6: Cultural Activities

A highlight of your trip to Africa is a chance to meet people from other cultures, broadening our understanding of the human spirit. We spend the day learning about traditional tribal life during an intimate visit to a local Iraqw home; as farmers, they know the natural world in a profound way, and we discover how they have lived harmoniously with the land for centuries. We overnight at peaceful Tloma Lodge located on a working coffee plantation in the green hills of Karatu. Rise early for a hike through the lush highlands of the Oldeani mountains and visit local working farms with sweeping views of the Great Rift Valley and Lake Eyasi. We continue to a local school (if in session) and to meet our peers before returning to the Tloma Mountain Lodge for overnight. Dinner, breakfast, lunch included 

Day 7: Ngorongoro Crater

We will leave this morning on our way to Ngorongoro Crater for full day game drive (1½ hrs drive from the Tloma Lodge). Our drive takes us up to the rim of the Crater; we will descend more than 2,000 feet on steep tracks cut into the crater wall to reach the open plains of the Crater floor. The Ngorongoro Crater is undoubtedly the best place in Tanzania to view black rhino as well as large prides of lion that include magnificent black-manned males. It is also home to huge herds of wildebeest and zebra and many other plains game, such as Thomson’s gazelle. An alkaline lake in the floor of the Crater provides a habitat for colorful flamingo and a variety of other water birds. Massive bull elephants feed in the swamps, some adorned with enormous tusks. Later in the afternoon proceed to Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge for overnight. Dinner, breakfast, lunch

Day 8 - 11: Serengeti National Park

After a relaxed breakfast, we drive westwards descending onto the vast Serengeti Plains. “Serengeti” derives from the Maasai word ‘siringet’ meaning “an extended area” – description of the endless rolling plains that give these grasslands a timeless romantic beauty. The principal features of the Serengeti are its stunningly dense wildlife populations and the annual spectacle of the migration of millions of zebra and wildebeest in pursuit of water and forage as the seasons change. En route we may visit Olduvai Gorge. Here in 1959 Mary Leakey discovered an early hominid fossil, nicknamed Zinj, dated to 1.8 million years old. This discovery, and later the uncovering of a set of hominid footprints dated to 3.6 million years old, changed the way scientists thought about human evolution. After a picnic lunch we continue to central Serengeti where the Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge is located and we will spend four nights at Serengeti Serena Safari lodge. Dinner, breakfast, lunch included
