Our final itinerary - Feb/March 2012 Northern Circuit Safari - Tanzania

Jump to last reply

Just posting this in case anyone else planning would like to see sample itineraries. We are going to be in Tanzania in Mid-Feb, early March. Originally, we were planning to also go to Rwanda to see the gorillas but gave that up because of budget restraints.

So, here it is. I'm really looking forward to my first African Safari! The cost of the safari is around $3,200 per person, not counting our flights and stay in Zanzibar and the first night's hotel (which is only $50).

Day 0: Pick up from JRO airport to overnight at McElly's Hotel in Arusha.
Day 1: After checking out Arusha, overnight at Arumeru Lodge (looking forward to this because they are supposed to have Dik Diks on the property).
Day 2: Days hiking and game drive Arusha National Park, overnight Arumeru Lodge, Arusha.
Day 3: Drive to Tarangire National Park in time for lunch; first game drive. Overnight tents at Tarangire Safari Lodge (overlooks a river with *maybe* elephants - not a real good time of year for elephants).
Day 4: Full day game drive Tarangire National Park. Overnight Boundary Hill Lodge, night safari that evening.
Day 5: Drive to Serengeti National Park, overnight Serengeti Wilderness Camp tent.
Day 6: Full day game drive Serengeti National Park, overnight Serengeti Wilderness Camp tent.
Day 7: Last day in Serengeti, enroute to Ngorongoro Crater, stop at Oldupai Gorge. Overnight Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge on the rim.
Day 8: Days hiking in the Embakai Crater area of Ngorongoro. Overnight Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge.
Day 9: Game drive Ngorongoro Crater in the morning, drive to Lake Eyasi. Overnight Tindiga Tented Camp.
Day 10: Visit Hadzapi Bushmen and Datoga Tribe and then drive back to Arusha. Overnight Arumeru Lodge.
Day 11: Fly to Zanzibar. Overnight Dhow Inn, Paje Beach.
Day 12: Enjoy Paje. Overnight Dhow Inn.
Day 13: Transfer to Stone Town. Overnight Zanzibar Coffee House.
Day 14: Enjoy Stone Town. Overnight Zanzibar Coffee House.
Day 15: Ferry to Dar es Salaam. Overnight Holiday Inn.
Day 16: Fly back home.
