12 Days Tanzania Safari Tour

12 Days Tanzania Safari Tour : In this safari we will enjoy visiting and exploring the key national parks of Tanzania, including Arusha, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, Serengeti National Park, Maasai Village, and Olduvai Gorge. Wildlife viewing, nature hikes, touring the Masai villages, and witnessing the great annual migration are some of the main activities will be enjoyed in this 12 days Tanzania Safari itinerary.  

The vacation begins and ends in Arusha, Tanzania, and it also includes a visit to the Serengeti National Park, a vast wilderness of more than 14,500 square kilometers where each day delivers a fresh adventure and a different landscape. The same safari will take you to Tanzania’s Ngorongoro crater and Ngorongoro conservation area, which has one of Africa’s largest concentrations of game and a significant population of carnivores and predators. You can see the wonderful African wildlife species in these parks. You will have the opportunity to see several birds and aquatic animals at Lake Manyara, which is also included in the safari. Many animals, such as elephants, lions, zebras, antelopes, birds, and many more, will be present for you to see.



Your safari guide will meet you at the Kilimanjaro International airport and drive you to your hotel in Arusha so you can rest after your trip. Settle into your lodging, unwind, and become accustomed to the African environment. Due to the likelihood that you will arrive late at night, this hotel stay includes bed and breakfast so that you can begin your safari properly in the morning. Throughout your safari, the other hotels will offer full board.

This is a very special private safari. Not only will you receive the advice of a private travel specialist, but you will also have complete control over the itinerary. Go through your plans with your guide on day one, regardless of whether you are an early riser or not. Your Tanzania safari will start the next morning!

The ideal places to see wildlife for the season will be selected by your guide. Spend some time at the hippo pool admiring these massive animals relaxing in the cool water next to the crocodiles, watching a lion stalk its victim, or being astounded by the size of the huge wildebeest migration.
