Cross the African plains in Tanzania on our Ngorongoro & Serengeti Safari, an accommodated tour from Arusha that is sure to leave you speechless and in awe of the beauty of Africa!

The Ngorongoro & Serengeti Safari takes you on a 6-day excursion into the wild through some of the world's best-known wildlife conservation areas including the Serengeti and Ngorongoro.  Spend your days in search of Africa's most prolific mammals and reptiles including the African lion, elephant, wildebeest, leopards, crocodiles and many more!

Arrival / Departure
Please be sure to arrive 1 day before your tour is due to depart. This will avoid any unforeseen problems. We also highly recommend that you book your flights to depart the day after the tour officially ends to allow for delays and changes.

Pre and Post Tour Accommodation
If you require accommodation before or after your tour we can arrange this for you. We can also arrange airport transfers – contact your travel agent to make these bookings.

Onward Travel
This tour can be linked with a number of our other routes, including our small group 6 day Tanzania Beach tour which explores the magical island of Zanzibar.  Additional small group safaris to Kenya, such as our 06 days Kenya Beach and 6 Day Kenya Safari can also be added.

Partaking in an adventure tour in Africa involves covering hundreds if not thousands of kilometres and our tours are as much about this journey as they are about the destinations we visit. Use your time during these drives to talk to your fellow travellers, have a drink and take note of the world passing by your window. Some roads you travel on will be smooth and easy while others could take up to an hour to cover 1 kilometre. There is just no telling what could happen with the road, weather, traffic and other conditions that may exist that will either increase or decrease the amount of time you spend on the road so take your watch off, put your iPad away, turn off your phone and just relax. An average day could take anything from 5 to 14 hours, it all depends on the day… and that’s only an “average”!
