The Serengeti Walking Safari, 13 days from $6,475 per person. New Itinerary ! We are very excited by this new option, which includes Tanzania’s great northern parks, so terrific vehicle-based game viewing as usual, but also gives the visitor opportunities to walk in the Ngorongoro Highlands and a better insight into the culture of the Masai people, before leaving all other visitors behind with days to walk in remoter areas of the magnificent Serengeti National Park – this truly is Africa to yourself! Very few companies have the licence to operate walking safaris within the Serengeti, what you are getting here is true exclusivity in remote Africa!
Arusha Lodge, 1 night. You will be met off your flight into Kilimanjaro Airport and taken to your lodge set in its own grounds near the town of Arusha. There is a swimming pool and space to explore with nearby attractions if you have time.
Manyara National Park and onto the Ngorongoro Crater Highlands, 2 nights. Spend a day with a picnic driving through the Rift Valley and game viewing for elephant, buffalo and a host of other animal and bird species n Manyara National park. Continue into the Crater Highlands and to your camp in the heart of Masai country. Full day game viewing on the Ngorongoro Crater floor, great for lion, hyena, buffalo and the endangered black rhino.
Wilderness Camp, Ngorongoro Highlands, 2 nights. Walking from camp to camp in the company of an armed ranger and Masai guides, you walk past scattered Masai bomas and look for wildlife along the way.
Serengeti Mobile Camp, for 3 nights. You will walk to meet your vehicles and then spend 3 days of game viewing from 4 x 4 vehicles from your mobile lightweight camp which moves seasonally depending on the animal movements. The Serengeti has the highest lion and cheetah numbers of any park in the world as well as the largest migration of large herbivores on the planet.
Serengeti Mobile walking camps, for 4 nights. You leave the game drive tracks and head into the wilderness walking areas – you will not see another person for the next four days! Enjoy the essence of walking in game areas – moving slowly, listening and looking for the sounds and signs of wildlife all around. Your camps are lightweight but comfortable and are moved ahead of you each day by your camp staff as you walk.
Day 13, Fly from the Serengeti to Arusha and for your onward flights home or to Zanzibar.
