10 Days Tanzania Highlights Safari


Tanzania contains some of the most incredible African Safari highlights, such as the Serengeti with the great migration and the incredible game-filled Ngorongoro Crater, along with the highest mountain in Africa, Mt Kilimanjaro. Throw in the idyllic Pemba Island and it is an incredible all-round destination.

Experience the wilderness of wildlife movement in great style with our Private Mobile Camping Safari, away from the large tour groups or crowded lodge areas. Enjoy and experience the sights and sounds of the wildlife with our Private Mobile Camping Safari.

If you have selected a private mobile camp for your safari, we will take you to the wilderness in great style. We use camp sites reserved exclusively for you and which are selected according to the seasons, climate and wildlife movement. The private mobile camp provides a safari experience away from the large tour groups or crowded lodge areas. We also will include small permanent camps for the day when your mobile camp is moving to a new location.

Our safaris are about wildlife viewing, photographic safari, cultural exploration, and the spectacular African landscape. By camping in the bush, (in a luxury tent with en suite facilities), you experience the sights and sounds of the wildlife and the wonders of the night sky. You will be closer to the wildlife and your experienced and knowledgeable guide will ensure a great safari. We have made a commitment to protect the environment in which we operate and we strive to use camp sites, private camps and other facilities that have a similar commitment.

Day 1: Arrival In Tanzania

Arusha, Tanzania

You will be met by Ecological Wilderness Safari guides after clearing customs and migration formalities and transferred to Zawadi House Lodge.

Day 2: Lake Manyara National Park – Karatu

Lake Manyara National Park, Arusha, Tanzania

After breakfast, we will drive to Lake Manyara National Park for a game drive and have a picnic lunch. While Manyara is one of the smallest parks, it is one of the most interesting. Much of the northern part of the park is fed by underground water from the Ngorongoro Highlands and, as a result, is covered in dense forest vegetation, giving the appearance of a tropical jungle. This forest is ideal habitat for elephant, bushbuck, blue monkey, and huge troops of olive baboon. Some parts are dry bushland attracting zebra, impala and giraffe, while the lakeshore provides another habitat, perfect for flamingos and other shore birds. Our game drive will take us slowly south through the park and, later in the afternoon, proceed to Country Lodge. We will have dinner and stay the night at the lodge.

Dinner and overnight Country Lodge.

Day 3 & 4: Lake Eyasi

Lake Eyasi, Arusha, Tanzania

Today, after breakfast, you will depart for Lake Eyasi, arriving in time for lunch at the well-known camp Kisima Ngeda. After lunch, you will rest for a while before going to meet the local people of this area, the Blacksmith; you will spend time with them getting to know how they work and live. Later on, drive back to the camp for dinner and overnight.

The next morning, you will leave at dawn with the Hadzabe people (The Bushmen) on a hunting excursion where you will see how efficient these people are in their hunting skills. It will depend on the day, but by 11:00 a.m. you will be done with this activity and return to the camp for lunch. After lunch, you will relax and enjoy the camp before visiting the local farms and fishing activities around Lake Eyasi.

Dinner and overnight at Lake Eyasi Safari Lodge.

Days 5 – 7: Southern Serengeti Plains

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

After breakfast, head out to the Serengeti Plains. Driving around the Crater rim, you may wish to stop at Olduvai Gorge to visit the museum and then proceed to the camp. Three full days of excitement await you as you depart from the camp at sunrise in order to capture the dawn activities, and the early morning light. You will return to camp for a late breakfast, and have an opportunity to relax – enjoy your natural environment and maybe watch a herd of Impala wander not far from the camp – before going out for your afternoon game drive.

Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Savannah Camp.

The next morning, you and your professional guide will discuss how you would like your day to be; as you have an option of going for a full-day game drive with picnic lunch, or returning to the lodge for a late hot lunch around 14hrs.
