    Itinerary At A Glance:

    Local Tour / Lake Manyara / Serengeti / Ngorongoro Crater /  Pangari Beach

    Day 1 | Arrival – Moshi
    On Day One of the Simba 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 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 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 | Lake Manyara
    The Third 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 in spectacular fashion, Day three 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 Pembeni Rhotia lodge.

    Day 4 | Serengeti National Park
    Beginning with an early morning departure, Day Four 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 view these fantastic animals in their prime habitats.

    You will enjoy a magnificent afternoon safari before having dinner and settling for the night at The Serengeti Heritage Tented Camp, situated in the middle of the national park for one of Tanzania’s most intimate wildlife experiences.

    Day 5 | Serengeti / Ngorongoro Crater
    On Day Five, we will awaken early for a second viewing of Serengeti’s big cats (before the heat of the day arrives). You will then be driven to the legendary Ngorongoro Crater for one of our favourite parts of the tour!

    You will spend the night staying on the rooftop of the Ngorongoro-Rhino Lodge. This hotel is a one-of-a-kind lodging situated right on the edge of the crater, an experience in itself to prepare you seeing the Ngorongoro Crater in full glory.

    Day 6 | Ngorongoro Crater
    Your Sixth Day begins with a hearty 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 wonderous site happens to home to a concentrated population of wildlife consisting of an estimated 30,000 animals (including The Big Five).

    Following the safari tour, you can enjoy lunch by the hippopotamus lake before commencing your drive back to Arusha where you will spend the night at Planet Lodge, a unique accommodation site specialising in tranquil and comfortable overnight stays.

    Day 7 | Maasai Cultural Tour
    On Day Seven, we propose a variety of experiences at West Kilimanjaro to our adventurers. Each experience offers a different opportunity to immerse yourself in the local culture, the experiences presenting a unique way to embrace Maasai. After an exploratory day about Maasai, you will spend the night at Maasai Lodge – overlooking the local national park!

    Adventurers may choose between one of the following options:

    • Visiting Osiligilai (traditional Maasai houses) to see how Maasai families live. This experience is ideal for anybody who has a curiosity for authentic architecture.
    • Visiting Olpopongi (The Maasai Cultural Village & Museum). This experience will enable adventurers to experience historical Maasai traditions in an authentic way.

    Day 8 & 9 | Pangani Beach
    After a jam-packed safari adventure, we close our Simba Tour in Pangani, a historic town located on the south-eastern shore of Tanga Region, Tanzania. With its remote location, Pangani is known for its tranquil nature; a tremendous way to take in a different side to Tanzania.

    There are several ways to spend your time in Pangani. You can enjoy relaxing, sunbathing, swimming while sampling the scrumptious and fresh local cuisine. Alternatively, you can spend some time forest hiking, bird watching or exploring the historic sites of Pangani.

    Additional excursions that can be arranged include snorkelling at Maziwa Island or a boat trip to Zanzibar; opportunities of a lifetime that may pique your interest. You may be keen to strike the perfect balance of action and relaxation; by spending two days in Pangani –you will have the opportunity to spend time in a way that marries up to your dreams of a Tanzanian holiday.

    During our time in Pangani, you will spend two nights staying at The Emayani Beach Lodge – a unique beach resort situated away from the bustle of Pangani. Offering a warm ocean breeze, picturesque scenes, and a wonderful set up to unwind in style, we know that The Emayani Beach Lodge is the perfect place to conclude your tour.

    Day 10 | Departure 
    On the last day of the tour, we like to offer a degree of flexibility to ensure that you get the most from the last moments of your Tanzanian Stay. From exploration of the town and souvenir shopping to alternative local experiences depending on your areas of interest, we hope to ensure you are left with a lasting impression of your tour.

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