Totally Tanzania

12 days from Ngorongoro to Nyerere

Why we love this itinerary

We often find there is a choice to make when it comes to which circuit to enjoy a safari in Tanzania. The North offers so much of the bucket list with the Ngorongoro Crater and the wildebeest migration, but the South has something so special about it, there aren't words to describe it!

On this trip there is no choice between them as we decided we didn't want to have to choose - we want it all! We recommend doing this trip at the end of May into June to make the best use of shoulder season rates.

We love the mix of accommodation on this trip which is authentic, fabulously located, and most of all has the people and in-house guides who will make the experience exceptional.

Trip Highlights

- Marvel at the wonder that is the Ngorongo Crater

- Chase the annual wildebeest migration in the North/West corridor of the Serengeti

- Get lost in the wild and remote Ruaha, home to 1/10 of the world's lions and the largest elephant popoluation on the continent

- Spot wild dogs in Nyerere, and enjoy relaxing boat safaris, a wonderful way to end this safari trip!

Days 1-3 | Arusha & Ngorongoro Crater

Your holiday begins in Arusha with a night to recoevr from your flights and get ready for your early flight to Lake Manyara, where you'll head into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Here you will spend an afternoon strolling around the Crater rim and have the opportunity to meet the local Maasai, before heading into the Crater early morning before most people due to the unique location of this lodge.

African Tulip & Nomad Entamanu Ngorongoro

Days 4-6 | The Serengeti

Just a short bush flight away is the Western corridor of the Serengeti, home to the wildebeest migration in May/June and this wonderfully authentic mobile camp that moves with the wildlife, so you are guaranteed to be in the right spot. The camp sites are carefully selected to be within striking distance of the herds but always tucked away in corners of hidden wilderness. You have 3 nights here to explore the area and witnesss the wonder that is the wildebeest migration!

Nomad Serengeti Safari Camp

Days 7-9 | Ruaha

Next you will fly into Ruaha on the Southern safari circuit, famed for it's lions and elephants. Lesser known than the Northern parks, Ruaha is wild, remote and peaceful with just a few camps across an area that is bigger than the Serengeti and Maasai Mara put together, so you won't see many people here! This is an truly special part of Tanzania and a welcome change of pace to the the busy Serengeti.

Asilia Kwihala Camp

Days 10-12 | Nyerere (Selous)

Your final stop on this wonderful safari is Nyerere (Selous) with its diverse landscape of swamps, rivers, and lakes and a good concentration of wildlife, in particular it is home to one of the biggest populations of wild dogs on the continent. The camp overlooks a key waterway linking Lake Manze to Lake Nzerakera, in the heart of the core game-viewing area, where you can explore on foot, game drives and on the water. A heavenly way to end!
