Ngorongoro

Ngorongoro and its beautiful Crater

After breakfast, we will head to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, one of the most famous safari sites in the world, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1978 and as an International Biosphere Reserve in 1981.

The Ngorongoro crater (permits for game drives inside the crater are valid for a maximum of 6 hours) is an area of major interest, located at 2,200 meters above sea level. It is the largest uninterrupted caldera in the world and one of Africa’s natural wonders with a presence of about 30,000 large mammals living all there all year round, such as buffaloes, lions, elephants, cheetahs and rhinos, including several bird varieties, such as flamingos, eagles, buzzards, ostriches and hawks.

In the middle of the crater is Lake Magadi, with shallow waters that tend to dry up during the dry season, serving as the best spot from which to observe flocks of flamingos and crowned cranes, as well as a large number of herbivores, especially wildebeests and zebras that drink here, attracting the presence of lions and hyenas.

We leave for the park early in the morning and return to Campo Tendato by 18:00.

Packed lunch will be served in the park.

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park

We will proceed visit the Serengeti National Park after breakfast. This unique place, where legend meets reality, is the oldest and largest park in Tanzania, covering an area of 14,763 square kilometres, so much so that its name, of Masai origin – Siringet, means “Plain without borders”.

You will be greeted by endless plains and the great migration of herbivores, especially wildebeests and zebras, prides of lions and other predators such as hyenas, cheetahs, leopards, jackals, crocodiles…

We shall leave for the park early in the morning and return to the camp by 18:00.

Packed lunch will be served in the park.

DAY 4

The beautiful Tanzanian fauna of Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti National Park and its splendid Tanzanian fauna

We continue our discovery of the magnificent Serengeti National Park after breakfast.

The boundless prairies are occasionally interrupted by unusual granite formations – kopjes, in whose cracks small pools of rainwater often form, attracting many small animals, as well as large predators such as lions who like to lay or hide in them, waiting for a possible prey to pass through.

The river is lined with many circuits where crocodiles, hippos and many other animals can be seen coming to water. You can also see the leopards that often bask in the branches of the umbrella acacia present here.

We will set off early in the morning for the park and return to the lodge by 18:00.

Packed lunch will be served at the park.

We then proceed to Lake Natron in the afternoon.

Dinner and overnight accommodation at the lodge at Lake Natron

DAY 5

Manyara Park

Manyara Park and Flight to Zanzibar

The safari continues after breakfast with a tour of Lake Manyara National Park, one of Tanzania’s most biodiverse parks.

Covering an area of only 330 square kilometres, 230 of which are occupied by the lake, it is possible to encounter up to five different ecosystems here.

The park is inhabited by over 380 types of birds and a large number of animal species such as elephants, buffaloes, zebras, giraffes, leopards, lions, baboons, hippos, antelopes, warthogs and many others.

We head for the park early in the morning.

FROM DAY 5 TO DAY 12

Zanzibar Mchanga Beach Resort

Zanzibar and the Mwezi Boutique Resort

This beautiful, well-kept resort directly overlooks one of the most beautiful beaches in Zanzibar – the charming golden sand beach. Bordered by palm trees, Jambiani is a place where you can leave your shoes behind.

Previously a remote touristic destination, this 7 km long sand strip is now a genuine and peaceful place where you can enjoy Zanzibar in all its intensity.

Environmentally friendly, use of recycled materials, interior design, modern African art and hospitality: these are the basic concepts on which the Mwezi Boutique Resort is built.

Its strength lies in the beauty of the place – unspoilt, almost wild, combined with the new idea for a resort in Zanzibar: to fuse the ancient Swahili construction technique using red earth and wood, with the characteristic makuti roofs, with a modern and exclusive taste, providing charm and unique character.

The Mwezi Boutique Resort is perfectly integrated and in harmony with the natural environment, surrounded by lush and fragrant vegetation.

You will find a panoramic restaurant in the resort with a menu featuring mainly fresh 0 km products, a swimming pool perfectly integrated into the natural landscape, a small shop where you can buy art and furnishings, trivia items and gift ideas created by Onlus Tanzaniane.
