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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
