+ 7 Days Big Five Safari, Tanzania Trip

Overview

This 7-day safari lets you witness the Big Five and other fascinating wildlife. You will be immersed in the unspoiled nature of real Africa and sleep in luxury accommodations. All this with the assistance of a tour operator based in Arusha. Enjoy full board on safari at hand-picked accommodations, a professional English-speaking guide, and private use of a Jeep kitted out with mineral water, power sockets, binoculars, and air conditioning (AC).

Our safari guide will meet and greet you at Kilimanjaro International Airport and transfer you to your lodge for your overnight stay. If time permits, you can experience a town tour with your safari guide. You’ll also have the option to relax at the lodge.

Overnight: Four Points by Sheraton Arusha

After breakfast, we’ll drive to Tarangire National Park for a game drive with a picnic lunch. The park is famous for its big herds of elephants, huge baobab trees and the high number of predators. There is a lot to see and explore here. Later, we drive to the lodge for dinner and your overnight stay.

Overnight: Marera Valley Lodge

After breakfast, we will proceed to Lake Manyara National Park for a game drive with a picnic lunch. Lake Manyara National Park is famous for its biodiversity. The park includes different environments: the lake, the forest and the plains. The lions climb the trees because they don’t like wet soil due to the underground springs. The park is rich in primates, birds and big mammals. Later, we will drive to the lodge for dinner and your overnight stay.

Overnight: Marera Valley Lodge

After enjoying a satisfying breakfast, get ready for an exciting day of game drives through the vast and rolling plains of Serengeti National Park. The goal is to witness the incredible interactions between majestic predators and the graceful herbivores they rely on for sustenance. As the day progresses, we will make our way to the carefully arranged accommodation nestled within this remarkable national park.

The word “Serengeti” comes from the Maasai language and means “endless plains.” These expansive grasslands are home to many predators, such as over four thousand lions, 225 cheetahs, a thousand leopards, 3500 hyenas, and hundreds of wild dogs! There are also numerous other magnificent animals that inhabit these plains, and your knowledgeable guide will be excited to search for them with you.

Overnight: Serengeti Safari Lodge

After breakfast, we will drive to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. We’ll descend into the Ngorongoro Crater for a game drive with a picnic lunch included. The Ngorongoro Crater is a must-see for its high density of wild animals while on safari in Tanzania. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a conservation project where the Maasai and their livestock live together with wild animals. After the game drive, we will proceed to Karatu and your lodge for dinner and overnight stay.

Overnight: Marera Valley Lodge

After breakfast, we will visit the local village not far from the lodge. We can also relax a bit at the lodge or do some shopping if you have time. We will then transfer to Arusha or Kilimanjaro Airport. You’ll arrive in time at the airport for your check-in and to catch a flight back home or to your next destination.

Unforgettable Kilimanjaro Experience Kili Touren created a wonderful experience for me and my friends! We embarked on our journey from Moshi and stayed at a hotel prior to beginning the climb the next day. During this time Hans and his team made sure we were fully prepared and had the gear required to be safe and comfortable throughout our trip. For those that did not have everything, they took us to a shop so that we could rent anything we needed. We took the Rongai route and made it in 5 days. The first three days weren't too difficult, and the guides with us were very knowledgable on the right pace we should be taking to make sure we could acclimate to the elevation. Each night we had a delicious meal that typically involved 2-3 courses, and there was water readily available when we needed it! The summit day was pretty difficult, mostly in part to the fact that our trip required us to do additional hiking after making it to Uhuru Peak. For other considering the climb, I would recommend 6 days if you have the budget. This trip was an unbelievable experience and I would like to thank Hans and his entire team for helping ensure all of us made it up and down safely, while also making it fun! I would highly recommend Kilimanjaro Touren to anyone considering hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro, or any other activity in Tanzania!

Western New York & Boston Meets the in country Peace Corps Hans and company were great! The guides and the barriers were some of the hardest working people on the planet. When one of our crew members was struck with altitude sickness the guides were right there to make sure he got down safely. We all enjoyed their company and comradeship on the hike. I can strongly recommend KILIMANJARO Turen for your next hike up the mountain.

Amazing Kilimanjaro Adventure Climbing mount Kilimanjaro is was an amazing bonding opportunity for me, my family and friends. A group of eight of us were led by Hans and the Kilimanjaro Touren team to the summit on the Rongai route and descend using the Marangu route in 5 days. Prior the start of the climb we stayed in Marangu, which is where Hans and many of the crew live or have family. They did a gear check and made sure we were all fully prepared for our journey. We were concerned that trying to complete the climb in 5 would result in some being unable to make it to the summit because we had heard success rates for 5 day climbs are lower because of acclimatization issues. We decided to make the climb in 5 days however because of our budge. Despite a snow storm the night of our final ascent our entire team (including my 62 year old father) made it to the top and back down safely. The team of guides proved to be experienced and made us feel safe while pushing through the harsh weather conditions above 5,000 meters. It is an experience that I will cherish forever and am grateful for the help of Kilimanjaro Touren.
