    Itinerary At A Glance:
    Lake Manyara / Serengeti / Ngorongoro Crater / Lake Eyasi / Zanzibar 

    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 | 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 spectacularly, 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 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 a jam-packed day, you’ll spend the night at Endoro Lodge for a tranquil stay.

    Day 3 | Serengeti National Park
    Kicking off with an early morning start, 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 spot these fantastic animals. You will enjoy a magnificent afternoon safari before having dinner and settling for the night at the Kubu Kubu Tented Lodges (situated at the centre of the Serengeti).

    Day 4 | Serengeti
    Days Five of the Simba 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 – however you choose to spend the day, Serengeti is the perfect location relax and to explore. You are invited to spend a second night at the Kubu Kubu Tented Lodge.

    Day 5 | Serengeti – Ngorongoro Crater
    Serengeti is one of the most beautiful locations that we are privileged to tour. With so much to experience, we will spend another day on safari! The Serengeti is renowned for its big cat sightings. On this particular safari, you will have the chance to see cheetahs prowling the savannah and elusive leopards escaping the heat of the day in the acacia trees. We will then commence the drive to the legendary Ngorongoro Crater where you will spend an unforgettable night at The Rhino Lodge situated on the top of the Crater!

    Day 6 | Ngorongoro Crater
    On the Seventh Day of our Simba 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 returning to Rhino Lodge after this unforgettable experience.

    Day 7 | Ngorongoro Crater – Lake Eyasi
    Day Eight 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 an alternative wildlife spotting experience

    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 Lake Eyasi to stay overnight at the Lake Eyasi Lodge (located on a gentle slope with extraordinary views of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

    Day 8 | Lake Eyasi
    Day Eight 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 before returning to Endoro Lodge.

    Day 9 – 13 | Michamvi Sunset Bay – Zanzibar
    Days Nine to Thirteen 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 14 | 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 Zanzibar International Airport in time for your flight departure.
