Details About this Safari
5 DAY SAFARI TOUR TO AFRICA – SERENGETI AUTHENTICITY
This short but action packed 5 day safari tour to Africa enables us to visit the prime location where vast herds gather during the wildlife migration. The great migration at the Serengeti National Park covers the open grassland of the Serengeti during the short rainy season mid-November to December.
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. Your guide will drive you about an hour to your lodge in Arusha. Overnight – Kahawa Lodge.
DAY 2: Arusha – Serengeti
After an 8:00 am breakfast, our office representative and your safari guide will give a safari orientation before heading to Arusha Airport for your short flight (less than an hour) to the Serengeti. Your safari driver guide awaits at the Southern Serengeti airstrip ready to take you deep into the wilderness for amazing adventures. Your safari guide will pick a nice location to enjoy lunch with views of the scenic African landscape. After lunch, continue with an adventure drive, checking out what is on the wilderness menu of the day. Late evening (or anytime you feel ready or a little tired) let your guide know that you are ready to go back to the lodge.
Dinner & overnight – Lake Masek Tented Lodge.
DAY 3: Serengeti
Depart with a packed breakfast for a morning drive to enjoy the wilderness and the wildlife in the beautiful morning light when animals are more active. Ndutu is an area that lies between the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Park. The Great Migration settles here after the start of the rains in mid or late November and stays until April. They dwell there due to the adequate water and pasture supply from the rains. Wildebeest and zebras adapted to form larger herds when on the plains, for safety in numbers. After lunch at the lodge, take time to relax a little during the hot part of the day. Leave again for an evening game drive when the sun cools down.
Dinner & overnight – Lake Masek Tented Lodge.
DAY 4: Serengeti – Crater Tour – Karibu Camp
After an early breakfast, you depart with packed lunch for a game drive in the crater. Ngorongoro Crater is a huge caldera, among the few places in the world left with the rare black rhinoceros. The rainy season is the best time to see black rhinoceros here because the pasture is good and vast, which enables them to wander more widely than in the dry season. Besides its wildlife diversity, UNESCO categorized the area as one of the natural wonders of the world. Although it is known as a crater, technically it is a caldera due to the geological formation and the size of the depression.
Dinner & overnight – Karibu Camp.
DAY 5: Karatu – 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.
