    Itinerary At A Glance:
    Local Tour/ Tarangire / Manyara / Serengeti / Ngorongoro Crater / Zanzibar Island

    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, situated just outside of Moshi. Here, you will enjoy a comfortable stay ahead of what promises to be a memorable safari tour.

    Day 2 | Local Tour
    Day Two will immerse you in Tanzanian culture. The Local Tour makes for a perfect day trip to acclimatise to the warmer weather ahead of your safari adventure!

    After breakfast, you will be met by the Massawe Adventures Tour Guides and driven in a private vehicle to the Materuni Waterfalls. The Waterfall has a reputation for wowing visitors with spectacular views and a memorable atmosphere. The Local Tour begins in the village by observing the entire process of coffee making as it goes from seed to mug (a treat 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 8km of walking throughout the day (including 300m of incline). This waterfall adventure is a great warm-up as the Kifaru tour begins.

    Following this wonderful welcome to Tanzania, you will spend your second night at The Green Side luxury cottages.

    Day 3 | Tarangire
    After breakfast, Day Three begins with a morning departure for Tarangire National Park – the sixth largest national park in Tanzania.

    You will have the opportunity to spend the afternoon spotting wildlife in this quieter wildlife haven featuring a wide variety of habitats. 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. The lower visitor numbers add to the authentic safari experience, something our guests have been known to love.

    Following a jam-packed day of safari, you’ll rest and recuperate overnight at the Maramboi Tented Lodges, situated just outside the national park.

    Day 4 | Lake Manyara
    The Fourth Day kicks off with an early morning departure for Lake Manyara National Park, with lunch provided on arrival. Described as a hidden gem of Tanzania, Lake Manyara is an extraordinary place to see much-loved wild animals in principal view.

    Famous for tree-climbing lions and with stories of large herds of elephants greeting tourists spectacularly, Day Four of the tour will satisfy many of your safari desires! From swamps and the tranquil lake to the mountainous escarpment of the Great Rift Valley, there are 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 a jam-packed day, you’ll spend the night at Endoro Lodge for a tranquil stay.

    Day 5 | Serengeti National Park
    Kicking off with an early morning start, Day Five has you driving to one of the most famous National Parks in Africa, the Serengeti. Home to millions of wildebeest during the migration, and large cats across legendary grasslands, Serengeti is a wonderful destination to spot these fantastic animals. You will enjoy a magnificent afternoon safari before having dinner and settling for the night at Into Wild Africa, situated at the centre of Serengeti for a unique overnight stay.

    Day 6 & 7: Serengeti
    Days Six and Seven of the Kifaru Tour will allow you to fully experience Serengeti however you’d like. Break your day into morning and afternoon safaris or take a picnic along with you for a day of independent adventuring. Both nights will be spent at the Kubu Kubu Tented Lodge (Central Serengeti) – one of the most intimate wildlife accommodation sites Tanzania has to offer.

    Day 8 | Serengeti – Ngorongoro
    Serengeti is one of the most beautiful locations that we are privileged to tour. With so much still to experience, we will spend another morning on safari! The Serengeti is renowned for its big cat sightings. You will have the chance to see cheetahs prowling the savannah and elusive leopards escaping the heat of the day in the acacia trees before departing for the Ngorongoro Crater (on the route, you could visit Olduvai Gorge or a local Maasai village at a small additional charge).

    Having arranged at the Ngorongoro Crater, you will spend the night at the Karibu Camps for a little ‘luxury in the wild’. This wonderful accommodation site puts you right at the heart of everything for an intimate stay with nature on the rim of the crater; a unique experience to cherish from our Kifaru Private Tour.

    Day 9 | Ngorongoro Crater
    On the Ninth Day of our Kifaru 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”).

    This wondrous site happens to be home to a concentrated population of wildlife – containing an estimated 30,000 animals including The Big Five. You will enjoy a full day of safari adventure in this phenomenal natural wonder, in addition to lunch by the hippopotamus lake, before spending a second night at Karibu Camps.

    Day 10 | Ngorongoro Walking Safari
    Day Ten will commence with a morning walking safari along the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. This on-foot safari provides the opportunity to observe some of the smaller animals and birds for a slightly different wildlife spotting experience from what is offered by the rest of the Kirafu Private Tour.

    In addition, the walking tour offers awe-inspiring views of the crater. Binoculars are a must as you could spot rhinos and buffalo hundreds of metres below – an alternative view of the animal movements at the Ngorongoro Crater. After lunch, you will be driven to the Endoro Lodge to stay the night.

    Day 11 | Mto Wa Mbu
    After breakfast, we will head for Mto Wa Mbu; a small town with a cultural diversity of over 120 ethnic groups. In the town, you can experience a whole host of traditional activities from different cultures. You could join the Chagga people and experience banana beer, the growing of rice seedlings, and banana farming. Alternatively, there is an opportunity to join the Makonde tribe for a morning of carving and exploring the local food market. The experiences and activities available to you in Mto Wa Mbu are endlessly exciting!

    Following a day rich with culture, we will take you back to Moshi to stay at The Green Side luxury cottages.

    Day 12 – 14 | Zanzibar Beach
    Days Twelve to Fourteen will see us spend our final leg of the tour in Zanzibar – an island off the east coast of Tanzania. This magnificent island has pearl-white beaches, clear seas and temperatures that fluctuate between 25 and 35 degrees. Zanzibar offers an entirely different perspective of Tanzania with exciting experiences and wildlife opportunities for you to immerse yourself in.

    Take a Dhow Cruise, and sail through the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean on a traditional wooden dhow, or embark on The Dolphin Tour which will take you to the Kizimkazi fishing village. Zanzibar is known for extraordinary coral reefs and sea life – offering unparalleled scuba diving and snorkelling opportunities.

    In addition to the obvious sun, sea and sand, numerous activities may take you away from the beach. Stone Town is the historical capital of Zanzibar, so you may choose to take a walk through the meandering alleys to visit the noisy bazaars, the Old Fort and the site of the former slave market. The renowned Zanzibar Spice Tour is a great way of exploring the famous spice plantations on the island, and The Prison Island Boat Trip will take you to the island that was formerly used for the detention of slaves (also home to the giant tortoise). 

    Day 15 | Departure
    On the final day of the tour, we like to offer a degree of flexibility to ensure that you get the most from your Tanzanian Stay. From an 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 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.
