Its game parks are populated with many of the world's most exotic creatures, including all of the "Big Five."

This adventure is open to photographers and non-photographers alike. In fact, anyone will find the locales visited and the wildlife viewing opportunities to be thrilling. Please note that the trip cost for non-photographers is the same as for active participants.This trip is limited to 12+1 participants as a compromise between providing ample space for participants' camera gear and reducing our carbon footprint and it offers 3 people per safari jeep.

ITINERARY: Tanzania Photo Safari Adventure Vacation

Day 01 : Arrive Arusha, Tanzania
Upon arrival into Kilimanjaro International Airport and after clearing customs and immigration, you will be met and transferred to the Serena Mountain Village. Nestled at the foot of the wooded slopes of Mount Meru, this unique hotel stands amid coffee plantations on the shores of tranquil Lake Duluti. Designed to echo the traditional style of the colonial coffee farm, which originally stood on this site, Serena Mountain Village - Arusha offers a range of tastefully presented cottage-styled rooms set amid extensive landscaped grounds. Standing at the gateway to the famous Tanzanian ‘Northern Safari Circuit', the hotel offers a broad range of attractions, which include: walking, mountain biking, canoeing on the lake, and trips to the nearby Arusha and Mount Meru national parks. The hotel features a stone-built reception with adjoining lounge, library, restaurant, boutique and business centre. Imposing in stature and spacious in concept, the design of the new building echoes the hotel's original incarnation as a working coffee farm dating back to colonial times.
No Meals servved or can be ordered on own account. Overnight at Serena Mountain Village [B]

Day 02: Tarangire National Park
After breakfast we will meet for our safari guide for a quick briefing before heading out on the road to Tarangire National Park. Tarangire is the third largest national park in Tanzania. An unusually large population of elephants inhabits this sanctuary. Majestic baobab trees create fantastic landscape photos as they dwarf the animals that feed beneath them. During the dry season animals concentrate along Tarangire River, which provides the only permanent water supply in the area. A great diversity of wildlife flourishes here, including the giraffe, buffalo, lesser kudu, eland, and zebra. Lions, leopards, and cheetah are also present. Up to 6,000 elephants inhabit Tarangire in the dry season. Enjoy panoramic views of animals drinking at the Tarangire River from atop a high bluff in the lounge and dining room of the Tarangire Safari Lodge. The open-sided design allows an uninterrupted view of the landscape and wildlife below, and captures the cooling breeze while you dine on the delicious home-cooked safari cuisine. The cozy tents have ensuite bathrooms and a view overlooking the Tarangire River [BLD]

Day 03: Ngorongoro Highlands
Today we pass through the Great Rift Valley on the way to Lake Manyara National Park. The lake, situated along the impressive escarpment of the Rift Valley, takes its name from the Maasai word for Euphorbia tirucalli, a bush which is used to make a thorny hedge to protect their cattle. With luck we may see the Manyara lions, well known for their tree climbing habits, lazily resting on the branches of an Acacia tortilis tree. Elephant, hippo, giraffe, buffalo and other animals are found here as well as nimble blue monkeys and large family groups of baboons. The bird life is prolific with flamingoes, pelicans, hornbills and plenty of vibrant forest species present. Finally, we will climb up the wall of the rift valley to the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. Overnight tonight on the rim of Ngorongoro Crater at the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge. Strung along the eastern rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, rooms at the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge have views out to the crater floor below. Floor to ceiling windows are set next to an inviting rocking chair, a perfect place to see Cape buffalo dining on lodge landscaping. Watch the sunset from the pool or the bar, and enjoy the large central fireplace in the restaurant. Overnight Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge. [BLD]

Day 04 + 05: Ngorongoro Crater
Every day, we get up early to be one of the first vehicles in the Ngorongoro National Park. Ngorongoro is one of the most spectacular game parks in Africa and has been designated a World Heritage site. Here animals are found throughout the year due to the permanent availability of grass and water. Nearly 100 square miles, it contains an impressive variety of wildlife including black-maned lions, the highly endangered black rhino, herds of gnu, zebra, elephants, hippo and hyena, the most important predator within the crater. Bird life is also prolific, with flocks of flamingos on the soda lake, plus other species of water and plains birds. We are allowed a maximum of 6 hours game driving in the crater. We may take short walks and hikes in this area during free time. Overnights Ngorongoro Sopa. [BLD]


Day 06: Serengeti National Park
After breakfast, you depart for the Serengeti. Along the way you will pass picturesque Maasai bomas and see the local Maasai in their bright red robes walking or tending their flocks as they do every day. En route, you will stop at Olduvai Gorge, where several generations of the Leakey family have toiled for decades, making important archeological discoveries in relation to the origins of “man.” The museum may be small, but the collection is a fascinating mix of fossils, bones and historical information. From there, the sprawling landscape of the Serengeti begins to unfurl before you. It is impressive in its size, but also in the variety and number of species it protects. Dinner and Overnight at Serena Lodge or Similar, Serengeti (BLD)

Day 07 + 08 + 09 + 10: Serengeti National Park
You have 4 full days to journey far and wide in this immense park, allowing your guide’s unerring instincts to lead the way. You may choose to view these vast plains from above by taking an optional balloon safari early this morning (advance reservations required). You have more time to explore the Serengeti, watching closely for the elusive cheetah, the graceful Thomson’s gazelle or the tiny dik-dik, an antelope barely two feet tall. There are countless other unique and fascinating sights for you to see. An infinite number of dramas play themselves out on these endless plains: predators stalk prey, animals eat, scavenge and graze, mothers nurture their young, birds hover and soar overhead, young animals frolic as older animals keep a watchful eye on these vulnerable little one. In short, it is a story of survival of the fittest and the Serengeti is one of the few places where you can still see “the world as it was in the beginning.” With your skilled guides at the helm, the game viewing promises to be interesting on this last day of your adventure. Spanning nearly 6,000 square miles, the Serengeti has even more to offer you today. Dinner and Overnight at Serena Lodge or Similar, Serengeti (BLD)

Day 11 : Back To Arusha + Depart
After a final morning of game viewing in the Serengeti, you will be transferred to the Airstrip back to Arusha for a farewell lunch. You’ll have a chance to pick up a few last minute souvenirs if you’d like. You’ll head off to your day rooms, which are provided so you can prepare for the final journey home. Take a shower, rest, share photo experiences with the other travellers or take a swim before you are transferred to Kilimanjaro International Airport for your departing flight this evening. Optional extensions to either Kilimanjaro Trekking or Zanzibar Islands are available on request.(Breakfast, Lunch)
