Safari Itinerary LAKE 201

2 Day Safari to Tarangire & Ngorongoro Crater

This safari is recommended throughout the year.


15th July 2022: Collected from your hotel in Arusha at 0730 and transferred to Tarangire National Park for game drive. 


Group 1 - Transfer to hotel in Arusha (own booking) for overnight.

Group 2 - Transfer to the Ngorongoro Crater rim for dinner and overnight in Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge.

16th July 2022: After an early breakfast, descend into Crater for game drive.

It's advantageous to descend into the crater as soon after 0630 as possible, with a breakfast box, in the hope of discovering some of the more shy species that may be near the road, before the movement of many few vehicles disperses them away. However, the Crater is home to a very dense concentration of many species of game that we may expect to see throughout the day.

Afternoon transfer to Arusha for overnight (own hotel booking, or let us know if you'd like us to book this for you).

Alternative: drop-off at either Arusha Airport (code: ARK) or Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) for your flight to Zanzibar Airport (ZNZ), where you'll be collected and transferred back to your hotel.

Booking of domestic flights between ARK / JRO and ZNZ are most cost-effectively obtained by booking directly via the Precision Air website.

If you have spent the night in Arusha:

17th July 2022: Please be ready to be collected by your airport transfer driver at least 3 hours prior to your departing flight to ZNZ.

              When considering an ascent of Kilimanjaro we frequently receive enquiries about what climbers should expect in terms of temperatures and precipitation. While this information is of course useful, it tells only a very small part of the story in terms of informing a climber how they should prepare.


              Tipping is a universal custom on Kilimanjaro and on safari and has always constituted a significant proportion of a guide or porter’s salary. It is alleged that there are even companies operating locally that do not pay their staff any salaries and that these workers rely exclusively on tips.
