What to Expect

Camp in the Serengeti National Park itself without fences between you and the animals. Your leader will brief you on the safety measures the group will need to take for the 2 nights spent in the park.

At Usambara Mountains the group will do an easy hike to the beautiful Irente viewpoint.

We use our purpose-built overland vehicles for the duration of this trip. This multi-purpose truck allows for great game viewing with large sliding windows. As such the trucks do not have air-conditioning and conditions can be dusty and hot.

The overland vehicle is large enough to seat up to 22 passengers and carries all the camping equipment needed for the duration of this trip. Therefore the going can be slow over the long distances and often bumpy roads.

This is a participatory camping trip. You will be expected to set up and take down you own tent as well as assist with food preparation and cleaning.

  • Explore the stunning Serengeti and discover animals unlike any you have ever seen.
  • Partake in community activities in Mto wa Mbu with a guided stroll around the farming areas
  • Embark on a safari across the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater in an open roof safari 4x4 for a chance to see a Black Rhino.
  • Wander around Stone Town’s bustling bazaars and fragrant spice markets and receive a guided tour of the spice plantations
  • Travel with 3 local crew members; Group leader, driver and cook.
Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive in Nairobi

Jambo! Welcome to Kenya. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm. You can arrive at any time as there are no activities planned until this important meeting. Please ask the hotel reception where it will take place. If you can’t arrange a flight that will arrive in time, consider arriving a day early so you are able to attend. If you are going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We’ll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting. If you arrive early, perhaps head out and explore the National Museum of Kenya, the Karen Blixen Museum or the highly recommended Bomas of Kenya where traditional homesteads of several Kenyan tribes are displayed in an outdoor village.
Accommodation: Hotel (1 night)
Meals Included: There are no meals included on this day.

Day 2Mto WA Mbu

Depart early for Mto Wa Mbu in your overland truck (approximately 8–9 hours). The trip includes a border crossing from Kenya into Tanzania, so be sure to have your passport handy. While you’re on the road, there will be a stop at an ATM and a market or shop to stock up on any supplies you might need for the coming days. Arrive in Mto Wa Mbu and acquaint yourself with this delightful small village – it’s a fascinating snapshot of small-town African life, situated well off the tourist trail. Tonight you’ll stay at a campsite with flush toilets, showers and optional upgrades (subject to availability).
Accommodation: Camping (with facilities) (1 night)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3Ngorongoro Crater / Serengeti National Park

Get up early, put your camping and personal gear into a six-person jeep and head out for an excursion into the Serengeti via the Ngorongoro Crater. Enjoy a safari in the crater, spending between three and four hours exploring this incredible, perfectly intact volcanic crater. Watch for black rhinos, lions, leopards, elephants, impalas, zebras and hippos. The crater floor offers excellent game viewing all year round (some 30,000 animals live here) and the photo opportunities here are unrivalled. Next it’s on to the wide open plains of the Serengeti. Green after the rains, brown and burnt in the dry season, this is perhaps the quintessential image of Africa – the home of thousands of hoofed animals and fierce predators. Your campsite is within the Serengeti itself, so listen out for the sounds of nocturnal animals as you drift off to sleep. The camp is basic with limited running water and no upgrades or Wi-Fi available.
Accommodation: Camping (with basic facilities) (1 night)
Included Activities: Ngorongoro Crater – 4×4 Game Drive, Serengeti National Park – 4×4 Game Drive
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4Serengeti National Park

Awake at dawn and embark on a game drive. You will head out while the animals are at their most active, then head back to camp for brunch at around 11 am. After spending the middle of the day relaxing, just like the animals do, head out again as the day begins to cool. You’ll return from this second game drive in time for dinner.

There’s also the option of a balloon ride over the park today (in place of some of the morning game drive). If you have pre-booked this activity (please see the ‘Important Notes’ section) you will be picked up before dawn and driven to the launch site. After a safety briefing, you will glide through the dawn, sometimes at tree height, which provides amazing photo opportunities. Sometimes you will ascend, getting an overview of the enormity of the plains and the early morning movements of the teeming herds. After landing, you’ll be treated to a five-star bush breakfast, then be returned to your camp.
Accommodation: Camping (with basic facilities) (1 night)
Included Activities: Serengeti National Park – 4×4 Game Drive
Optional Activities: Serengeti National Park – Balloon Ride (from price) – USD599
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch,Dinner

Day 5Serengeti National Park / Mto Wa Mbu

Rise with the sun and enjoy another game drive as you exit the Serengeti. Jump back into your overland vehicle and head for Mto wa Mbu. Once camp is set-up join the local community for a guided stroll around the farming areas, milling machine, and local homes and farmlands, before a local meal in town.
Accommodation: Camping (with facilities) (1 night)
Included Activities: Serengeti National Park – 4×4 Game Drive
Mto Wa Mbu – Village walk & market visit
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6Usambara Mountains

Prepare yourself for a long travel day heading for the Usambara Mountains (approximately ten hours). Stretch your legs during a brief supply stop in Arusha, then jump back in the vehicle and watch the ever-changing scenery, read your favourite book or get to really know your fellow travelers. Your base will be Lushoto, an old German colony and home to the Wasambaa people. This highland town sits at approximately 1400 metres and this evening you’ll camp in the grounds of one of the oldest hotels in Africa.
Accommodation: Camping (with facilities) (1 night)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 7Usambara Mountains

Explore the beautiful Usambara Mountains, a lovely unspoilt area of Tanzania. Unlike the coast and the north, very few tourists visit this part of the country, so it has a freshness that can be hard to find elsewhere. As beautiful as the surrounding mountains and rainforests are, however, the real jewels here are the local people and villages. You’ll experience some gentle hospitality on a visit to some of the small local communities. From your base, you will take a walk out to the gorgeous Irente viewpoint. It’s best to pack some water and snacks in a day pack for this trip. On your way back, visit a local cultural project based at Irente farm and enjoy a picnic lunch.
Accommodation: Camping (with facilities) (1 night)
Included Activities:Irente – Lushoto hike & local lunch
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch,Dinner

Day 8Dar es Salaam

Leaving the mountains behind, travel still further south to the coastal town of Kipepeo Beach in Dar es Salaam (380km, approximately 8-9 hours). Your camp at Kipepeo is by the beach, so make the most of it – perhaps take a stroll along the shore after you arrive and settle in. The camp is on the grounds of a hotel with upgrades usually possible
Accommodation: Camping (with facilities) (1 night)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9Stone Town

Catch a ferry to the ‘Spice Island’ of Zanzibar. Filled with idyllic beaches, winding cobblestone alleyways and fragrant bazaars, Zanzibar has a history encompassing everything from slave traders to Arabian sultans and fruit exporters. The sight of traditional dhows sailing along the coast evokes what the island must have been like in Livingstone’s day. The old part of Zanzibar’s main city is known as Stone Town. The best way to see this port town is on foot, exploring the markets, shops, mosques, palaces and courtyards. When the sun is setting, perhaps enjoy a sundowner from a bar overlooking the seafront, and a seafood curry at a local restaurant. Spend a night in Stone Town at a basic inn with double/twin-share rooms and access to WiFi.
Accommodation: Hotel (1 night)
Optional Activities: Stone Town Tour – Dharajani Market, Joseph’s Cathederal, Palace Museum, Forodhani Food Market – USD20
Zanzibar – Prison Island Tour – USD25

Day 10Zanzibar Northern Beaches

Check out of your Stone Town hotel and either drive to the spice plantations for your optional guided tour, or head directly to the perfect northern beaches. On the spice plantations guided tour you can learn all about the history of this town’s renowned spice trade. You will also have the opportunity to touch, smell and taste various spices, such as cinnamon, vanilla and ginger. Sample some teas made with these spices too. After lunch here you will head to the northern beaches, where white sands and sparkling blue seas await, and reunite with your group. This is the Indian Ocean at its best.
Accommodation: Bungalow (1 night)
Optional Activities: Zanzibar – Spice tour – USD25
Meals Included: Breakfast

Day 11Zanzibar Northern Beaches

Enjoy free time in this beautiful archipelago today. There are many ways you can spend your day – perhaps talk to your leader for any recommendations they might have.

Accommodation: Bungalow (1 night)
Optional Activities: Zanzibar – Dhow Trip – USD60
Zanzibar – Snorkelling – USD60
Meals Included: Breakfast

Day 12Stone Town

After checking out this morning, you will make your way back to Stone Town, arriving at the hotel around 12pm. Your trip comes to an end here.
From here the easiest option is to fly out of Zanzibar Airport. However, if you have arranged to fly out of Dar es Salaam Airport ferries depart Zanzibar at 7.30 am, 9.30 am, 12.30 pm and 3.30 pm. It’s important to allow enough time to get back to the mainland if you need to catch your departing flight from Dar es Salaam. Speak to your leader about the best way to do this.
