An excellent safari for nature photographers: the Best Wildlife Photo Collection Trip to Tanzania, home to the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro. This safari comes with the opportunity to take exciting photos in one of world’s most outstanding wildlife, landscape and cultural locations, combined with the pleasures of a luxury vacation.

Tanzania offers one of the best environments in the world for an enriching wildlife experience. The country’s game viewing opportunities are considered by many to be the best in Africa. Its game parks are populated with many of the world’s most exotic creatures, including all of the “Big Five.” Its lakes are huge and bountiful with fish. Its cities are relaxed and friendly, its cultures vibrant; yet, to a greater degree than is true of many of its neighbors, this sprawling county, the largest in East Africa, remains untouched by the vacationing hordes. This photographic safari lets you discover these and more in comfort and style.

ITINERARY

Day 1: Arrival In Arusha
Arusha, Tanzania
Learn More @ www.ecologicaladventure.com

Welcome to Tanzania! Upon arrival in Tanzania this evening, you will be met by your Safari guide and transferred to your hotel.

Day 2: Tarangire National Park
Tarangire National Park, Arusha, Tanzania
Learn More @ www.ecologicaladventure.com

After breakfast, drive to Tarangire National Park, the third largest national park in Tanzania. This delightful park, covering an area of 2,600 sq km was established in 1970, and it is the numerous baobab trees that will initially catch your eye. The Tarangire National Park derives its name from the Tarangire River that rises in the highlands of central Tanzania and winds its way through the game sanctuary. The river irresistibly lures the herds of plains migrants from the parched surrounding area to its shrunken – but permanent – brackish waters during the dry season. Dinner and overnight at Tarangire Safari Lodge

Day 3 & 4: Game Drive In Tarangire National Park
Tarangire National Park, Arusha, Tanzania

Tarangire National Park. After breakfast, you will explore Tarangire National Park and the large herds of elephant that reside there. Spend morning and afternoon game drives in the park. Dinner and overnight Tarangire Safari Lodge

Day 5: Lake Manyara Birdwatching
Lake Manyara National Park, Arusha, Tanzania
Learn More @ www.ecologicaladventure.com

More than 380 species of birds have been recorded in Manyara and include the hadada ibis, saddle-bill stork, Hottentot teal, plover and African pied wagtail. As you game view through the ground-water forest, look for the playful vervet monkeys searching for food at the top of the trees. Later this afternoon, visit Mto wa Mbu Village, a trading center that has been active for more than two centuries, which is also the place where the famous American hunter Ernest Hemmingway used to live. In addition to providing a unique cultural experience, Mto wa Mbu Village is one of the only places where you can hear Bantu, Nilotic, Hamitic and Cushitic dialects all being spoken in the same place. Dinner and overnight at Lake Manyara Escarpment Lodge

Day 6: Lake Manyara - Serengeti National Park/ Ndutu
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Learn More @ www.ecologicaladventure.com

With a picnic lunch, depart for Serengeti stopping en route at Olduvai Gorge, the site of Dr. & Mrs. LSB Leakey’s discovery of Zinjanthropus Boisei. Here, you will enjoy a short talk from one of the Deputies of Antiquities, who will explain to you what has been done and what continues to happen. The Gorge was discovered accidentally by a German butterfly collector, Professor Kattwinkle, in 1911, but it was not until 1959 that Dr. Mary Leakey unearthed the Zinj skull believed to be 1.8 million years old. After the gorge you will proceed to your private mobile tented camp. Settle into your camp before heading out for an afternoon of game viewing. The short grass plains of the Serengeti, combined with an abundant source of food in large herds of zebra, wildebeest, impala and buffalo, make the Serengeti an ideal place to spot cheetah on the hunt. Dinner and overnight Serengeti Savannah Ndutu - Camp

Day 9: Serengeti National Park Game Drive
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Another wonderful aspect of overnight in tented camp is the ability to fix your own schedule. Today, you might want to relax in camp for a while before heading out on a game drive. Dinner and overnight Serengeti Savannah Camp

Day 10 & 11: Full Days Exploring Southern Serengeti
Serengeti National Park/ Ndutu, Tanzania

Another wonderful aspect of tented camp is the ability to fix your own schedule. Today, you might want to relax in camp for a while before heading out on a game drive. Dinner and overnight Serengeti Savannah Ndutu - Camp

Day 12: Serengeti - Ngorongoro
Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Arusha, Tanzania
Learn More @ www.ecologicaladventure.com

Your drive this morning takes you to Olduvai Gorge for a brief visit to one of archaeology’s most historic discoveries. After excavating the site for more than 28 years, Mary and Louis Leakey unearthed one of the world’s most dramatic discoveries: the partial skull of “Nutcracker Man”, dating back 1.75 million years. Their later discovery of homo habilis (Handy Man) added to the debate of the origins of the first human. Continue to Ngorongoro Crater for the night. (Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge)

Day 13: Ngorongoro Crater Game Viewing
Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Arusha, Tanzania
Learn More @ www.ecologicaladventure.com

Professor B. Grzimek once wrote about Ngorongoro Crater: “It is impossible to give a fair description of the size and beauty of the Crater, for there is nothing with which it can compare.” As you descend to the floor of the crater, you will quickly agree with the Professor. The crater comprises 100 square miles of the Conservation Area and supports more than 25,000 mammals. Grazers like zebras and wildebeest dominate the landscape but giraffes are notably absent, as there is insufficient food to support them. Enjoy a full morning game viewing on the crater’s floor. Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge

Day 14: Ngorongoro - Arusha
Arusha, Tanzania
Learn More @ www.ecologicaladventure.com

Drive to Arusha this morning where you will arrive for lunch. Spend the afternoon at leisure and optional shopping before proceeding to Kilimanjaro for your day use room at Kia Lodge.
