This seven day guided tour is a perfect first safari. You’ll explore some of the most glorious of African lands, including the magnificence of the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater as well as the lesser-known and more select of the Tanzanian parks like Arusha and Lake Manyara National Park. From day one you’ll be encompassed by nature in all her beauty – a landscape like no other, big, bold skies and a dizzying array of wildlife and flora. You’ll get up close with lions, gaze on the pink haze of flamingo shimmering on a soda lake, learn to pick out submerging hippos and spot so many species of birds that you’ll lose count. With comfortable camps, delicious food and accompanied by an experienced, friendly guide, this seven day Tanzanian safari is perfect for you if you’d like to experience the best that Tanzania offer.
You’ll start your adventure early in the morning heading to Arusha National Park. You’ll explore the shores of tranquil Lake Momella which reflects the colors of the sky in her still waters, and you’ll experience the vibrancy of the bronzed bush where the Ngurduto Crater buffalo, waterbuck, giraffe, warthogs, zebra and gazelle busy themselves. These are resident throughout the year so you’re bound to see a different animal everywhere you turn. The elusive leopards and elephants tend to be shy at Arusha but there is a good chance of spotting them, too. At a slower pace, you can really begin to understand Africa. You’ll get up close and personal to the flora and fauna but you’ll stay safe, accompanied by an armed ranger who will guide you through lush forest to the clear springs of a sparkling waterfall. Arusha National Park’s rangers are extremely knowledgeable, and as you walk you’ll learn so much about the biodiversity of the park – and suddenly you’ll spot a tribe of black and white colobus monkeys, famous in the park for their acrobatics. You’ll spend overnight in a camp close to the park, where you’ll relax and enjoy a delicious dinner.
