Tanzania Classic Safari – Overview
Get ready for one of the best safari experiences on the African continent! Your trip spans over nine days. You arrive at the Kilimanjaro International Airport and then transfer to the city of Arusha where the adventure begins!
During your safari adventure, you will visit 4 National Parks and enjoy wildlife viewing by going on game drives.
Here are the highlights of your safari adventure in Tanzania:
- Visit the Tarangire Park, renowned for harboring herds of elephants and also the tree-climbing lions. Moreover, wildlife viewing also includes the wildebeests, the gazelles, and the buffalos to name a few.
- Next stop, visit Lake Manyara and the Great Rift Valley, notorious for their abundant birdlife. In fact, more than 350 species of birds can be found in Lake Manyara Park and the Great Rift Valley area. An ideal destination for bird lovers and you should keep your eyes peeled for the great Kori Bustard the heaviest bird able to fly.
- Start the second half of your safari vacation with game drives into the picturesque Ngorongoro Crater, which harbors a wide variety of wildlife including the giraffes, the cheetahs, the lions, the hippopotamuses, and if you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of the black rhinoceros!
- End your adventure by exploring the Serengeti National Park, famed for the Great Migration where more than 2 million mammals travel from the Serengeti Park toward the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya.
- Finally, fly back to Arusha city, and off you go to the Kilimanjaro International Airport.
The Tanzania classic safari is for everyone who is in good health. No need to get fit by joining a 6-month training program or being a professional athlete to enjoy your safari vacation fully. All that is required is to have the soul of an adventurer!
However, the Tanzania safari adventure is not for you, if you are seeking an adventure punctuated by adrenaline rushes with physical challenges or loads of outdoor activities, like instance, hiking, walking, canoeing, bungee jumping, and so forth.
The Extras to Consider…
- Private safari vehicles with a window seat, park fees, professional guides, airfare from the Serengeti Park to Arusha city on the last day of the trip, accommodations, and meals.
What is NOT included?
- Round-trip airfare to get to Arusha city, travel insurance, and any excess charges such as extra luggage, alcoholic beverages, souvenirs, and gratuities.
- Holiday Supplement: If you go during the Christmas holidays there will be a supplement of $550 US.
- Single Supplement: If you travel alone and don’t want to share your room with a same-gender roommate, a fee of $1,299 US will apply. However, this fee is waived if REI Adventures are unable to match you with a same-gender roommate, or if you decide to share your room with someone (same-gender).
