Tanzania Under Canvas
8 Days


8 DAYS: Arusha, Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park

Tour Overview
Experience Africa like travelers of yesteryear but with the modern comforts of today. We’ve replaced the ox-wagons and bearers with custom-made 4×4 safari vehicles and professional guides, and the cramped dull tent, with charming spacious canvases. Exciting game drives will fill your days and safari style will fill your nights. Our private Tanzania Under Canvas mobile camps feature a chef, waiter and support crew, home cooked meals, and en-suite bathrooms inside your spacious tent – your own private wilderness experience.

Day 1 – Arrive Kilimanjaro / Arusha

Arrive to Kilimanjaro Airport, Tanzania, where you are met and escorted to your hotel in Arusha.

Day 2 – Arusha / Tarangire National Park

Morning travel to Tarangire National Park followed by an afternoon of game viewing. (BLD)

Day 3 – Tarangire National Park

Full day game viewing. Tarangire National Park gets its name from the river that threads its way through the length of the reserve. It is famous for its dense wildlife population which is most spectacular between June and September, the dry period. During this time, thousands of animals – elephant, buffalo, giraffe, eland, wildebeest, kudu, hartebeest and the rarely seen oryx – migrate from the dry Masai steppe to the Tarangire River looking for water. Lion, leopard and other predators follow the herds. Tarangire has the largest population of elephant of any park in the northern circuit and is also home to 550 varieties of bird. (BLD)

Day 4 – Tarangire National Park / Lake Manyara National Park / Ngorongoro Crater

Depart Tarangire after an early breakfast and head to Lake Manyara National Park featuring an abundance of wildlife, including hippo, zebra, giraffe, buffalo, impala, wildebeest, baboons and monkeys. Spend the balance of the day game viewing in the park before continuing on to Ngorongoro to overnight at a private campsite on the crater rim. (BLD)

Day 5 – Ngorongoro Crater / Olduvai Gorge / Serengeti National Park

This morning head down into the Ngorongoro caldera for a full morning of game viewing in one of the most spectacular places on earth! Photographic opportunities are abundant, and one often sees four out of the Big Five in a short time. Have a picnic lunch at the floor of the crater in a pleasant lakeside location where you can stretch your legs and soak up the magnificent scenery. Afternoon travel to the Serengeti National Park. En route we visit the Olduvai Gorge. (BLD)

Day 6 & 7 – Serengeti National Park

Spend a full two days game viewing in the Serengeti. Located on a main annual migration corridor for over 1 million wildebeest, half a million zebra and gazelle, and their accompanying cast of predators, the area features a ringside seat for one of the greatest wildlife spectacles on earth. (BLD)

Day 8 – Serengeti National Park / Depart Kilimanjaro

This morning’s pre-breakfast game drive is your final opportunity to bask in the unmatched grandeur of the African safari lands. Fly back to Kilimanjaro, where you have a day-use room at nearby hotel, before transfer to the airport for your departing flight. (B)
