    Local Tour / Tarangire / Lake Manyara / Ngorongoro Crater / Lake Eyasi 

    Day 1 | Arrival – Moshi
    On Day One of the Kifaru Private Tour, having arrived at the Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will meet with the representatives from Massawe Adventures and transfer to Chanya Lodge (a 50-minute drive from the Airport). Here, you’ll enjoy a comfortable stay ahead of what promises to be an unforgettable tour.

    Day 2 | Local Tour
    Day Two provides you with the opportunity to immerse yourself in in the local culture of the surrounding area. After breakfast at Chanya Lodge, you will be met by the Massawe Adventures Tour Guides and driven in a private vehicle to the Materuni Waterfalls (just 15km from Moshi Town). Materuni Waterfall has a reputation for wowing visitors with its almighty force and spectacular views. When combined with a coffee tour in the village, our Local Tour makes for a perfect day trip to acclimatise to the warmer weather ahead of your safari adventure!

    The Local Tour begins by observing the entire process of coffee making as it goes from seed to mug (an experience to tantalise the senses) After a lunch prepared for you with local produce, you will head off to explore Materuni Waterfalls. The Local Tour involves around eight kilometres of walking throughout the day (including 300m of incline). This waterfall adventure is a great warm-up for the legs as the tour of Kifaru begins). After this fantastic experience, you will spend the night at The Green Side Luxury Cottages situated at a beautiful site between Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru.

    Day 3 | Tarangire
    After breakfast, Day Three begins with a morning departure for Tarangire National Park – the sixth largest in Tanzania. You’ll spend the afternoon wildlife spotting in this quieter wildlife haven featuring a wide variety of habitats. The lower visitor numbers add to the authentic safari experience, something our guests have been known to love. Witness majestic herds of elephants playing and bathing in the Tarangire River – in addition to sightings of Giraffes, Buffalos, Gazelles, and Zebras. Over 545 species of wild animals have been spotted at Tarangire National Park; this is a fantastic chance to spot some of Africa’s most loved wild animals.

    Your third night will be spent at The Tarangire Simba Lodge in the heart of Tarangire National Park. Lucky guests have sighted wild animals from the windows of their bedrooms – an immersive wild animal experience not to be missed.

    Day 4 | Lake Manyara
    Day Four kicks off with an early morning departure for Lake Manyara National Park with lunch provided on arrival. Described as one of the hidden gems of Tanzania, Lake Manyara is an extraordinary location to see our beloved wild animals in prime view. Famous for tree-climbing lions and large herds of elephants known to greet tourists in spectacular fashion, Day Four of the Kifaru Private Tour will satisfy many of your safari needs!

    From swamps and the tranquil lake to the mountainous escarpment of the Great Rift Valley, there is a wealth of habitats to explore. Lake Manyara National Park is located at the base of the East African Rift Valley, parallel to the Gregory Rift. Subsequently, the national park offers spectacular viewing of the escarpment; a magnificent sight to behold. After the safari, the adventure continues onto Karatu for an overnight stay at Pembeni Rhotia Lodge for a comfortable stay with incredible views.

    Day 5 | Ngorongoro Crater
    On the fifth day of our Kifaru Private Tour, your day with begin with breakfast, closely followed by departure to the Ngorongoro Crater; one of the seven natural wonders of the world (sometimes known as “Africa’s Garden Of Eden”).

    Ngorongoro is to home to a concentrated population of wildlife – containing an estimated 30,000 animals including The Big Five. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy lunch by hippo lake before commencing the drive to Rhino Lodge, situated just a few hundred metres from the craters rim, for a memorable overnight stay.

    Day 6 | Lake Eyasi
    Day Six features a trip to Lake Eyasi. Lake Eyasi is home to the hunter-gather ethnic group – Hadzabe Bushmen (they have similar characteristics to the Kalahari Bushmen or San people of Southern Africa).

    Well known for their “click” language, this Tanzanian indigenous tribe is probably one of the last that live in true harmony with nature – their extensive knowledge of the natural world virtually unrivalled. You will be given the rare opportunity to hunt alongside Hadzabe Bushmen and experience their way of life.

    After lunch, we will drive back to Moshi for a second overnight stay at The Green Side Luxury Cottages following this immersive, one-of-a-kind experience.

    Day 7 | Departure 
    For your final few hours in Tanzania, we like to offer a degree of flexibility to ensure that you get the most from your Tanzanian adventure. From optional exploration of the town and souvenir shopping to alternative local experiences depending on your areas of interest, we hope to ensure the final moments in Tanzania leave a lasting impression.

    Massawe Adventures will then ensure that you have a comfortable drive back to Kilimanjaro International airport in time for your flight departure.
