Details About this Safari

THE 10-DAY GREAT MIGRATION SAFARI TO SERENGETI – DRY SEASON

This Great Migration safari to Serengeti package is designed not only to deliver the best wilderness experience in Tanzania but also to allow you to embark closer to the natural environment to observe, learn behaviour and appreciate the natural world. Your adventure will go from the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem to the Tarangire ecosystem.

DAY 1: Arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport

After arriving at Kilimanjaro International Airport and completing immigration formalities, meet your safari guide at an arrival lounge. After a brief introduction, your guide will drive you about an hour to your lodge in Arusha.
Dinner & overnight – Kahawa House.

DAY 2:  Arusha – North Serengeti

After breakfast, depart to Arusha Airport for your flight to the North Serengeti. Your safari guide will be waiting at Kogatende Airstrip with a packed lunch from the lodge. After a short orientation about the area, you leave the airstrip for your first game drive. Kogatende is a unique area that hosts great migration from July – late October. It’s phenomenal to get an opportunity to watch the massive herd crossing the flooding Mara River. When you’ve worked up an appetite, you’ll have lunch in the bush; after lunch, you can carry on with the game drive for a few hours.
Dinner & overnight – Karibu Camp.

DAY 3: North Serengeti

You’ll get an early start after breakfast for a game drive. We recommend that you take a packed lunch because the crossing may not happen in the morning, so if you have a packed lunch with you, you won’t miss the opportunity. Lunch in the bush when you’ve worked up an appetite. After lunch, we carry on with the game drive for a few more hours.
Dinner & overnight – Karibu Camp.

DAY 4: North Serengeti – Central Serengeti

After breakfast on day 4 of your 10 Day Great Migration Safari to Serengeti – Dry Season, you will depart to the Central Serengeti via Lobo with packed lunch. Lobo is another part of the Northern Serengeti that is less visited. A game drive at Lobo maximizes your chances of seeing a lot more. Again, you will stop for lunch in the bush when you are ready. After lunch, we continue the game drive on the way to the central Serengeti.
Dinner & overnight – Karibu Camp.

DAY 5: Central Serengeti

After an early breakfast, depart for a game drive. Serengeti National Park is a huge park that covers 14,763 square kilometres (9200 square miles). The central area commonly known as Seronera is one of the great areas for big cat sighting; there is no guarantee, but there is greater opportunity. Great migration usually moves into different parts of the park at different times of the year due to searching for the more favourable conditions of water and pasture. Central Serengeti at this time of a year has the resident wildlife only. Lunch at the lodge. Leave again when the sun cools down in the late afternoon for a few hours game drive.
Dinner & overnight – Karibu Camp.

DAY 6: Central Serengeti – Ngorongoro

After your leisurely breakfast, depart to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area with packed lunch, enjoying a game drive on your way. Today you have an option of visiting the Olduvai Gorge, where the famous paleoanthropologists Louis and Mary Leakey found the fossilized remains of the Zinjanthropus Boisei, believed to be the ancestors of man. Here there is a museum where you can hear an interesting talk about evolution. After lunch at the Gorge, drive to Karibu camp.
Dinner & overnight – Karibu Camp.

DAY 7: Crater Tour

You will take a packed breakfast for an early start to the famous Ngorongoro Crater. Ngorongoro Conservation Area covers 8,292 square kilometres (5200 square miles). The crater was formed over 2.5 million years ago after violent volcanic activities. The volcano eventually collapsed to form a huge depression known as a crater, though technically it is a caldera due to type of formation and the size of the area. Wildlife diversity is wonderful in the crater, and it is one of the very few places left in the world where the black rhinoceros thrive. We will break for breakfast when you are ready. After breakfast continue with a game drive for a few hours. Sighting of rhinos in the dry season is quite challenging because their favourite pasture is dry and short; usually, the rainy season is the best time to see them as they wander more widely because of abundant food almost everywhere. Lunch at the lodge. After lunch, take a siesta, enjoy the rest of the day reading and relaxing; let us know if you are interested in a short walk for an hour or so after lunch. (There is a small additional cost.)
Dinner & overnight – Karibu Camp.

DAY 8: Ngorongoro – Tarangire

Your Safari Guide will have your packed lunch in a vehicle before you leave for Tarangire. The drive will take 2 – 2.5 hours. At the main gate to Tarangire National Park, while your guide is paying for park fees, you can stretch your legs in the parking lot; this is a good time to use the restroom. Tarangire National Park covers 2600 square kilometres (1615 square miles). The diversity of flora and fauna is great year-round, though in the wet season some wildlife like wildebeest and zebra tend to wander widely to an extensive Maasai steppe south of the park. Lunch at the park when your appetite calls. After lunch, we will continue with the game drive for a couple of hours.
Dinner & overnight – Tarangire Safari Lodge.

DAY 9: Tarangire

The bird and elephant populations at Tarangire are phenomenal. The park has over 500 bird species—a Mecca for birders! Besides birding, the park has the largest elephant population density per square kilometre in the northern part of the country compared to other parks. The great wildlife diversity of the park makes it one of the great places that can be visited year-round, though many claim that Tarangire is its best in the dry season. At the lodge, you’ll have a few hours for lunch and a rest before the late afternoon game drive. Another option could be taking a packed breakfast and lunch instead of stopping at the lodge for lunch; this would allow us extended time in the park.
Dinner & overnight – Tarangire Safari lodge.

 

DAY 10: Tarangire – Arusha

After your leisurely breakfast, depart to Arusha. Lunch and day room at Kahawa House; late evening transfer to the airport for your flight back home.

Safari Pricing Explained

Why is my safari more expensive with less people in the group?

Safaris are a mixture of fixed costs for the tour company (JAfrica)  ie staff, vehicle, food, and external costs which come in the shape of accommodation and park fees etc.

When pricing a safari we divide our fixed cost by the number of people in the safari truck to work out a cost per PAX, then we add on the accomodation and park fees.

This means that the fixed costs are shared by the people travelling, so the more peole in the group, the less the individual is required to pay. If you have any quieries regarding this or anything else about your safari trip to Africa please feel free to contact us.

Please call or email for child pricing, depending on the numbers in your group we can negotiate better room rates with the lodges.

 

Solo travelers, please email us for the best/latest pricing.
