4 Days Serengeti-Ngorongoro crater cheap Tanzania safari

Tanzania safari 4 Days Serengeti-Ngorongro crater safari itinerary. Best time to travel: all year round


During this 4 day lodge safari you will visit the three most well known reserves in North Tanzania: Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Park. This safari has something for everybody and is ideal for those with limited time, but who do not want to miss out on what the Serengeti has to offer.

4 Days Serengeti-Ngorongoro crater Safari Itinerary:

Day 1- Leave Moshi/Arusha – Lake Manyara National Park.
4 Days Serengeti-Ngorongoro crater
In the morning we will collect you from your hotel and take you to Lake Manyara National Park. Once you have reached the National Park Gate, your driver will open the roof of the vehicle allowing you to better observe the wonderful wildlife and scenery. Ernest Hemingway spoke of this area as the most beautiful that he had ever seen. It is easy to see why for to the west the Rift-Valley-Escarpment rises to almost 600m, and to the east the seemingly endless Maasai Steppe stretches to the horizon. In between lies the shallow and alkaline Lake Manyara where the flamingoes seem to turn the shallow waters a pink hue. On the lake’s perimeter a diverse range of animals can be found such as elephants, giraffes, buffalo, antilope and gazelles. The Manyara National Park is also well known for it’s lions which like to climb the trees- something which is quite unusual for big cats. In the late afternoon you will leave Lake Manyara National Park and spend the night at Kirurumu Manyara Lodge . Lunch; Dinner

Day 2-Lake Manyara National Park – Serengeti National Park


After breakfast a trip to the cooler regions high up in the crater before later reaching the Southern Serengeti. The Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Reservation in Tanzania and the Masai Mara National Park in Kenya together create one of the largest reservation areas in the world. Their combined aim is to maintain this intact continuous wildlife ecosystem – one of the few left in the world. The Serengeti National Park is famous for the ‘Great Migration’, over one million wildebeest and two hundred thousand plus zebras each year follow the rains. In October and November they travel from the mountains of the north, southwards to the plains seeking lush pastures. After the great rainy season in April, May, and June the herds then make their returnward journey. Even without this mass migration, the Serengeti is still an exciting and spectacular place that still cannot fail to enthrall. You will have your evening meal and an overnight stay at Kati Kati Tented Camp . Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner


Day 3-Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Conservation Area


Dawn is the best time to watch wildlife, therefore before breakfast the first wildlife safari of the day takes place. After breakfast another explorative tour of the Serengeti National Park follows. Here in the Senonera region you can often watch wildebeest and zebras next to lions and other big cats such as leopards and cheetahs. Lunch is taken at a picnic spot before a slow drive to the Ngorongoro Crater. On the way you will pass the Olduvai Gorge where the English pair, Louis and Mary Leak pioneered excavation work. In the sixties some of the earliest archaeological deposits of human evolution was found and a small museum (visit optional) documents these discoveries. Once you reach the crater’s rim you will be able to see into this massive caldera and down to its floor which lies 600m below. Overnight at Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge situated on the crater edge where you can enjoy the wonderful view across the caldera as the sun sets. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner


Day 4-Ngorongoro Crater – Moshi/Arusha


After Breakfast will be at day break followed by a drive on a small road through a forested region to the crater’s floor where the landscape turns to savanna with scattered acacia trees. Here the wildlife is just breathtaking; with a little luck in just a few hours you can observe the big five – lions, elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros,and leopards. As well as these fantastic animals you can also observe warthogs, wildebeest, zebras, gazelle, antilope, hippopotami and much much more. After a morning full of wildlife watching and lunch in the crater, you will return to Moshi/Arusha in the afternoon. Breakfast; Lunch

6 Day Wildebeest Migration Safari Serengeti Ngorongoro Crater

AFRICA JOY TOURS 

Tanzania Tours Listing

6-Day migration safari overview – recommended from July to October

In July, the wildebeest migration moves north, passing through the Lobo area (area just north of the central Serengeti National Park) and the Wagakuria area (remote northern Serengeti National Park along the Mara River) en-route to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. The migration can arrive to the Wagakuria area anytime from July onwards and wildebeest can be seen in the area, crossing the Mara River. In September the wildebeest herds are spread out over the northern Serengeti National Park and Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. Several large herds of wildebeest remain behind in the area and sometimes weather changes can bring the herds back into the area from the Mara. In October, the herds move south towards the central Serengeti National Park via the Lobo area of the Serengeti National Park.

Day 1 – Arusha – Ngorongoro

Non game-viewing travel time: 4 hours
Distance: 190 km


Pick up from Arusha and transfer to the Ngorongoro Conservation area. We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch we will descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife for an afternoon safari tour.

Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park, is it’s dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the south western corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually been seen here.

Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 2 – Ngorongoro – Serengeti (Lobo area)

Non game-viewing travel time: 5 hours
Distance: 250 km


After breakfast we will head towards the Serengeti National Park, leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the Lobo area which is located just north of the Seronera area (central Serengeti National Park). The wildebeest migration, normally pass through the Lobo area every year around July / August en-route to the Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve and again in late October / November en-route to the southern Serengeti National Park.We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti National Park. Dinner and overnight in the Lobo area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 3 – Serengeti (Lobo area)

After breakfast, enjoy a full day game drive in the Serengeti National Park. The area around Lobo and the Grumeti River has good resident game throughout the year. Non-migrating game like elephant, buffalo, gazelle, zebra, lion, leopard and cheetah can be seen here all year round. The game viewing is very good and you can follow game for long periods without seeing other vehicles – truly one of the forgotten corners of the Serengeti Plains. Magnificent riverine trees can be found along the river lines and bird life such as kingfishers and fish eagles can be found here.Dinner and overnight in the Lobo area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 4 – Serengeti (Lobo area) – Northern Serengeti (Wagakuria area)

Non game-viewing travel time: 3 hours
Distance: 150 km


After breakfast we head towards the far northern reaches of the Serengeti National Park, also known as the Wagakuria. We will do a game drive en-route from the Lobo area to the Wagakuria area. As we head north, good sightings of giraffe, plain game, herds of buffalo and elephants can often be seen.

We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch will we enjoy an afternoon game drive in the area. The wildebeest migration can normally be found in the Wagakuria area from August to October, depending on rainfall patterns. A long stretch of the Mara River runs through the northern Serengeti National Park and the Mara River provides the migration with its most difficult obstacle. Witnessing the frantic herds of wildebeest crossing the Mara River is amazing.Dinner and overnight in the Wagakuria area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 5 – Northern Serengeti (Wagakuria area)

After breakfast enjoy a full day game drive in the Wagakuria area. Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high in the Wagakuria area, with prides of lion up to 30 strong, however from August to October the area turns into a wildlife paradise. The key feature is the Mara River and it is not uncommon to see the herds cross the Mara River north on one day and then back south a few days later. Please take note – to actually finding a crossing is very difficult and is sometimes a matter of luck. A herd can be seen next to river and only decide to cross or not cross until a couple of days later. This area is a stunning region with kopjes, woodland, riverine vegetation and open plains, similar to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve.

Dinner and overnight in the Wagakuria area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 6 – Northern Serengeti (Wagakuria area) – Arusha

After breakfast at the lodge, we depart to the Kogatende airstrip and enjoy a game drive en-route to the airstrip. The group should tip the guide around $20 to $ 30 a day

Around mid-morning, join a scheduled flight from Kogatende airstrip to Arusha airport. Upon arrival to Arusha airport, meet our driver and transfer to Arusha town. On arrival in Arusha will we have lunch and then we will end our African safari adventure. You will be taken to your hotel, which ends our safari services.

______________________________________________________________________________


7 Days Safari

All our 7-day Africa wildlife safaris and tours, specifically include the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the world famous Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. This specific Africa safari and travel itinerary has been designed for visitors with more time on hand for a longer safari or tours. It specifically includes the Tarangire National Park and have been designed to offer you a total Tanzanian northern circuit safari experience, while attempting to keep your non game-viewing travel time to a minimum.

Day 1 – Arusha – Lake Manyara

Non game-viewing travel time: 2½ hours
Distance: 130 km

Pick up from Arusha and transfer to Lake Manyara National Park. We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch we head into the Lake Manyara National Park for an afternoon game drive. This national park is one of Tanzania’s most dramatically located wildlife areas, consisting of a massive but shallow soda lake (covering two-thirds of the park), located at the foot of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment. The park’s varied habitat attracts a wide variety of animals, including one of Africa’s largest concentrations of elephants, Lake Manyara’s unique tree-climbing lions, as well as large flocks of flamingos attracted by the algae in the lake.

Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 2 – Lake Manyara National Park – Serengeti Plains

Non game-viewing travel time: 6 hours
Distance: 205 km

After breakfast we head towards the Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species. We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti National Park.

Dinner and overnight in the Seronera area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 3 – Serengeti Plains

Be one of only a few fortunate people to glide in a Hot Air Balloon over the Serengeti Plains (available at supplementary cost by pre-arrangement). Floating silently above the awakening bush, while spotting wildlife and enjoying the amazing scenery of Africa, across rivers and over numerous small villages.

We do an after breakfast game viewing drive along the Sogore River Circuit, which loops into the plains south of the Seronera River, and which is good for possible lion, Thomson gazelle, topi, ostrich and cheetah sightings. The visitor’s centre not far from the Serengeti Seronera Lodge and public campsites, is well worth a visit after the morning’s game drive. This nicely designed centre, offers some interesting wildlife displays as well as a gift shop selling information leaflets and maps of the area. The centre also has a shop where cold drinks and snacks can be purchased, as well as a picnic area and information trail up and around a nearby kopje. We will enjoy a relaxed picnic lunch at the centre in the shade of the giant acacia trees.

In the afternoon we will follow the Kopjes Circuit, which goes anti-clockwise around the Maasai Kopjes, which usually attract a number of lion and some formidably large cobras. Kopjes are weathered granite outcrops, scattered around the plains, most of which are miniature ecosystems, providing shade and drinking water in pools left in the rock after the rains. This makes the kopjes particularly good for spotting wildlife in the dry seasons – including lions, which like to lie in wait for animals coming to drink!

Dinner and overnight in the Seronera area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 4 – Serengeti Plains – Ngorongoro Crater

Non game-viewing travel time: 4 hours
Distance: 145 km

It was here, that the anthropologists Drs. Lois and Mary Leakey discovered the skulls of the’Nutcracker Man’ and ‘Handy Man’, both very significant links in the chain of human evolution.

We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and spend the afternoon at leisure.

Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested on the crater rim, no accommodation available inside the crater.

Day 5 – Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast we descend 600m into this magnificent crater for a full-day game drive. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhino. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its huge population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard. We will enjoy a picnic lunch on the crater floor.

Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested on the crater rim, no accommodation available inside the crater.

Its natural vegetation mainly consists of Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp areas in the south. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for wild animals, during Tanzania’s dry season. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. This African National Park is also home to three rare species of animals – the Greater Kudu, the Fringed-eared Oryx, as well as a few Ashy Starlings.

Tanzania safaris-Get in Safaris Tours Company

GET IN SAFARIS TOURS COMPANY



There is no destination like Tanzania for a Safari, and RAYMOND A. SWAI Manager of GET IN SAFARIS in the country will look after organizing all the details. Statistics speak for themselves: a quarter of its territory is protected land led by The Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the amazing Sealous Reserve as well as a rich mosaic of areas which mean that 20% of the total population of great African mammals live within their borders.

But Tanzania (union between Tanganyika and Zanzibar) is much more than safaris. It bears mountain summits such as Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru – the first and fifth highest peaks in Africa – it is also home to the 3 largest lakes in the Continent: Victoria, Tanganyika and Natron. And rounding it all off, the magic and charm of islands like Zanzibar, pearl of the Indian Ocean, which offers fantastic beaches and fabulous places for scuba diving.

Consequently, how can we describe the wide choice of a country offering such wonders as Kilimanjaro, Serengeti, Ngorongoro or Zanzibar?

It is, however, quite easy to describe the Tanzanian experience. It all amounts to just one single word that visitors will hear several times a day: the warm and welcoming Swahili greeting – karibu! – welcome!

Cheli & Peacock Safaris-East Africa

Tanzania Tours Listing Directory
Tanzania Tours Listing Directory

ABOUT

Cheli & Peacock Safaris is operated by Stefano Cheli and Liz Peacock. The company started in 1985, and Liz and Stefano have been running it hands-on ever since.
Liz and Stefano Cheli

Both safari guides and having grown up in Kenya, Liz & Stefano created the business to share their authentic safari experiences with others. From 1985 Cheli & Peacock operated lavish private tented safaris with professional guides, often Stefano or Liz themselves. Camps were sent ahead and pitched on virgin sites, so when clients arrived the fire was going and the gin and tonics ready. The camps became more elaborate over the years from a Landrover and trailer for 6 people in the early days, to two 6ton lorries for 6 people! The company soon developed a reputation for professional service, outstanding food, attention to detail and that well worn phrase – “holidays of a lifetime”.


Liz & Stefano were operating “eco-tourism” before it was a buzzword; employing from the local communities and supporting both National Reserves and community conservation initiatives.

In 1994 Stefano designed and built Tortilis Camp in Amboseli, a unique concept at the time – beautifully designed, small, upmarket, gourmet fresh food, and of course outstanding guides. Offering walking, sundowners, bush breakfasts – all the added extras that Stefano and Liz consider essential to a complete safari experience. The project won the “BA Tourism for Tomorrow Award” a year after opening.

In 1999 Stefano designed and built Elsa’s Kopje lodge in Meru National Park – still considered a flagship in elegant African safari accommodation. Following on came Joys Camp in Shaba National Reserve (2005) a stylish camp in the exquisite arid country bordering Samburu; and Elephant Pepper Camp in the Masai Mara. Elephant Pepper retains the Cheli & Peacock roots of elegant private tented safari. Only 10 tents, including 2 suites, it still operates in the old fashioned safari style of yester year.

Today, Cheli & Peacock has grown to become the leading ground handler in Kenya and Tanzania; continuing to operate upmarket bespoke safaris for clients that want the “real safari” experience. Today, and throughout more than 30 years of operation, Liz & Stefano’s priorities have always been to:

Operate the best safari for the client – taking into account their interests, ages, celebrations; so that they get the very best out of their safari experience.

Responsibility and professionalism – so that attention to detail, compulsory Flying Doctors membership, vetted destinations and subcontractors, and responsible eco-tourism are an essential part of the safari planning. An officer from Cheli & Peacock is always on call, and Liz & Stefano are always available.

Emphasis on wildlife experience, complete safari experience and guiding – as well as enjoying the most dramatic and romantic bedrooms in the world!

Over 30 years of rapturous client feedback and support from all corners of the globe is testament that bespoke safaris offering the best of the best – is what “holidays of a lifetime” is really about.

Amani Afrika, an owner-run boutique tour operator

Our Company

Tanzania Tours Listing Directory

  • HOW WE BEGAN

    Amani Afrika was founded in 2007 by Godwin Temba, a native Tanzanian. After working many years as a mountain guide and a safari guide himself, Temba felt that something was missing from how big tour companies handle businesses – personalized service that is tailored to each individual traveller’s needs and wants. Since changing hands from the overseas booking agent who answers your emails, to the ground handler who receives your payment, to the host who would pick you up from the airport (if there is one), to the various lodges who would accommodate you in Africa and the guide who is the ultimate determinant of whether you will have the best time of your life or otherwise, those promises made to you 3 email forwards and few Anglo-Swahili whispers ago had long been forgotten. Surely, internet has given consumers the power to choose and buy virtually anything directly from sellers more than a decade ago by cutting out the middlemen. Why should Africa travel be any different?

    Parting with 50 cents to buy ugali and dagaa on one hand and $2000 to register the business on the other, waiving goodbye to the sanity that tells him that he is being a kichaa who will be starving for the next 10 years 11 months and 10 days, Temba did not look back and Amani Afrika was born. 

    Bespoke East Africa travel specialist for the Free Independent Travellers – that is Amani Afrika!
  • AFFILIATIONS

    We are a licensed Tanzanian tour operator with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism (MNRT) with TALA license number 61872. We are also a member of the Tanzania Association of Tour Operators (TATO) and a subscriber to the AMREF Flying Doctors.
