Day 1 - Arusha Lake Manyara National Park

After breakfast you will meet Kenya Walking Survivors Safaris representative who will brief you about your safari holiday in Tanzania. Then you depart to Lake Manyara National Park which lies approximately 1.5 hours (126km/80 miles) west of Arusha along a newly surfaced road, close to the ethnically diverse market town of Mto wa Mbu. Stretching for 50km along the base of the rusty-gold 600-metre high Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway as "the loveliest I had seen in Africa". From the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle-like groundwater forest where hundred-strong baboon troops lounge nonchalantly along the roadside, blue monkeys scamper nimbly between the ancient mahogany trees, dainty bushbuck tread warily through the shadows, and outsized forest hornbills honk cacophonously in the high canopy. You will do a game drive in the morning, followed by a lunch picnic. In the afternoon, we continue the game drive and finally we will reach our hotel.

Day 3 - Ngorongoro Crater Floor

After breakfast we descend down to the ground of the famous Ngorongoro Crater for a game drive. The crater (610 meters deep and 260 km squared) is a microcosm of East African scenery and game. Scenic grandeur and stunning views are the hallmark of this wonder of the world. There are 25,000 larger animals within the crater itself, mostly zebra and wildebeest. However, this is undoubtedly the best place to see black rhinos in Tanzania as well as prides of lion that include the magnificent black-maned males. There are lots of colorful flamingoes and a variety of other water birds around the soda lake on the crater floor. The crater is home to more than 100 species of birds which cannot be found in the Serengeti. We will have lunch at the hippo pool picnic site, and later ascend to the rim and have dinner and Overnight

Day 9 - Lake Eyasi

After breakfast, we will first have a walk through a coffee plantation, and then we will drive to Lake Eyasi. Lake Eyasi is a salt lake located between the Eyasi escarpment in the north (an ancient fault line that is part of the Rift Valley system) and the Kidero mountains in the south at an altitude of around 1000 metres. The area is hot and dry and home to the Hadzabe bushmen, who are believed to have lived here for nearly 10,000 years. We meet the Hadzabe people in the afternoon and learn about their lifestyle which still centers on hunting and gathering traditions.

Day 10 - Tarangire National Park

After breakfast we meet the Hadzabe people again and accompany them when they do hunting. Then we depart for the Tarangire National Park. During the hot and dry season, the Tarangire River shrivels to a shadow of its wet season self. But still it is choked with wildlife. Thirsty animals have wandered hundreds of parched kilometres knowing that here, always, there is water. Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It's the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem. We will have a picnic lunch in the park, do an afternoon game drive, and have dinner and overnight
