5-Day Best of Budget Tanzania Safari Tour


5-Day Best of Budget Tanzania Safari Tour Overview

This 5 Day Tanzania Camping Safari lets us see the best parts of the Northern Safari Circuit. We see monkeys in the forest, lions in the trees, elephants among the acacias, and a huge variety of animals inside a collapsed volcano. We also go to the Serengeti National Park, which is home to about 3 million animals. The best place to see cheetahs, leopards, and lions in the wild is on these beautiful grass plains.


Detailed Itinerary

A representative from Mangokili Adventures will pick you up at the airport and take you to your hotel in Arusha. There, you will spend the night, relax, and get ready for the adventures to come.

Accommodation: Forest Hill Hotel/ Tulia Boutique Hotel

After breakfast, our safari guide picks us up at our hotel and takes us to Tarangire National Park by car (approximately 2 hours). Tarangire gets its name from the Tarangire River, which gives life to the area. It is best known for its elephant families, savannah, famous baobab trees, and seasonal swamps. At the river, animals like giraffes, bushbucks, and hartebeest often gather. The park is also home to buffalo, zebras, and wildebeest, which are all closely watched by predators like Simba the King and the leopard, who is his cousin. We will be able to take in the scenery and watch animals from the open roof of our modern Safari Truck. We have a picnic lunch in the park, where we eat a variety of tasty foods and drink coffee and soft drinks. After a full day of seeing the sights in the park, we drive to our accommodations, where we can relax, eat dinner in beautiful surroundings, and go to bed whenever the mood strikes.


Budget Camping: Migombani Campsite

After a quick breakfast, we get on our way to the Ngorongoro Crater, which is the largest volcanic caldera in the world. The caldera was made when a volcano blew up about 3 million years ago. It is almost 20 km wide and about 600 m deep. It is known for having a lot of different kinds of wildlife. The caldera is a paradise that is all by itself. It has a lot of the best animal life on the planet. In addition to the Big Five, animals like wildebeest, gazelles, reedbucks, and more than 500 types of birds are drawn to the springs. We leave for the Serengeti at around 1400hrs, and we get to a high-quality tented camp at around 6:00pm. The Serengeti National Park, also called the Serenget, which means “endless plain” in Maa, the language of the Maasai, is the largest park in Tanzania. It has many different types of landscapes and habitats, including grassy plains, swamps, lakes, savannah, and mountains, as well as all the animals that live there.


Budget Camping: Nyani Campsite

Again, we’ll eat breakfast early and leave for our game drive at about 6:30 am. We’ll spend the next 6-7 hours exploring this amazing park. The Serengeti is home to a lot of animals, like impala, buffalo, crocodiles, and hippos. However, it is best known for its huge herds of migrating zebras (over 250,000), wildebeest (over 1.5 million), and antelopes (half a million). The animals move based on how much rain there is, which changes from year to year. Aside from the migrating herds, we might also see leopards, cheetahs, and lions going about their business. Around 1400 hours, we head back to Mto wa mbu, where we will spend the night.


Budget Camping: Migombani Campsite

We take a short drive to Lake Manyara National Park after breakfast. The shallow salt lake that takes up about 70% of the land in Manyara National Park, which is 120 km west of Arusha, gives the park its name. This soda lake is home to thousands of flamingos and more than 500 other bird species. It floods and dries out with the seasons. We will see monkeys, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, buffalo, elephants, and, if we’re lucky, lions relaxing in the trees as we walk through the park. The park is known for its many different kinds of landscapes, including grassy plains, woods with primates, and cliffs with baobab trees.

After lunch, we head back to Arusha, where we arrive around 5:00 p.m., as the end of our trip is inevitable.

Kilimanjaro Hike and visit of Tarangire and Ngorongoro Nationalpark We spent around 10 days with Mangokili adventures doing both a hike up Kilimanjaro, along the Lemosho route and visiting Ngorongoro and Tarangire Nationalpark. The hike up Kilimanjaro was amazing and the support we received by the team in terms of service and kindness was great, we really loved it. Also the trips to the Nationalparks were great and very interesting.
Gian Luca Reiss
Very nice! We were a group of 3 friends who climbed the Kilimanjaro with the Lemosho-Route in 6 days (normally 7 days) and did a 2-day safari afterwards. From the point of interest to the actual engagement, every worry and question was taken care of by Mangokili Adventures. The organization worked out super well. We had 2 great guides, 11 great porters for the Kilimanjaro-hike and 1 great guide for the safari. Especially good for trips with a budget. We paid in total about 2.400 USD.Super content.

The tour was great with a very friendly guide and driver, the accommodation was outstanding The tour was great with a very friendly guide and driver, the accommodation was outstandingThe communication was great, always replied to our questions. The driver was good and even helped us spot animals on the safari while driving, the guide was easygoing and replied to any of our questions.The accommodation should be displayed as premium, we did not expect to arrive at a toilet inside the room, a bottle of water to brush your teeth, soap and clean towels provided, amazing food and chef, a lounge to chill and take beers/drinks. Pictures of the accommodation and food should be displayed as it was way more than we expected given the surroundings
