    Itinerary At A Glance:

    Local Tour / Serengeti / Ngorongoro Crater / Tarangire / Maasai Cultural Tour / Kikuletwa Hotsprings

    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 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 Simba tour begins.

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

    Day 3 | Serengeti
    Beginning with an early morning departure, Day Three 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 Into Wild Africa Tented Lodge, situated in the heart of the wild for one of Tanzania’s most intimate wildlife experiences.

    Day 4 | Serengeti
    Day Four of the Simba Tour will provide you with the opportunity to fully experience Serengeti however you’d like to. Break your day into morning and afternoon safaris or take a picnic along with you for a day of independent adventuring. You will then have a wonderful overnight stay at The Serengeti Heritage Mara, situated on the Northern Circuit.

    Day 5 | Serengeti
    With so much to experience in Serengeti, we will spend a third day on safari! The Serengeti is renowned for its big cat sightings. On this particular safari, you will have the chance to see elegant cheetahs prowling the savannah and elusive leopards escaping the heat of the day in the acacia trees.

    Serengeti is one of the most beautiful locations that we are privileged to tour, and we can’t wait to share the experience with you before spending a second night at Into Wild Africa.

    Day 6 & 7 | Ngorongoro Crater
    On the Sixth 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 wonderous site happens to 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 in the crater before heading to the Karatu Simba Lodge.

    With so much more to see, Day Seven 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. The walking tour also offers awe-inspiring views of the crater.

    Day 8 | Tarangire
    After breakfast, Day Eight 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 return to The Green Side luxury cottages for another overnight stay.

    Day 9 | Maasai Cultural Tour
    On Day Nine of this tour, 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 10 | Kikuletwa Hot Springs
    On the penultimate day of the Simba Tour, we will take you to the magnificent Kikuletwa Hot Springs. Kikuletwa Hot Springs (alternatively known as ‘Maji Moto Hot Springs’ or ‘Chemka Hot Springs’) is a hidden gem along Arusha and Moshi. This scenic oasis is surrounded by miniature jungle – the perfect destination for you to enjoy a relaxing bathe or swim following your Simba Safari adventure; little fish may even give you a gentle pedicure if you hold still and would welcome that!

    There are also waterfalls close by that you can wander to and experience before heading back to The Green Side luxury cottages.

    Day 11 | 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 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.
