(1 Review)

Hiking safari to four different areas

Mount Meru / Arusha National Park / Lake Manyara National Park / Serengeti National Park

Our most popular hiking safari in Tanzania. Maybe because it contains our favorites. And probably because you are staying around the clock in unbeatable nature. You even smell the wild animals. Varied nature with both mountains, lake and savannah. Lots of wildlife such as giraffes, lions, ostriches and buffaloes. And then every night dinner under the stars while nature screams in the dark. A hiking safari packed with unique experiences.

Hiking safari in the Serengeti

The Serengeti National Park, with its world-famous migration, has the best wildlife in the world. In addition, extensive wilderness areas where vehicles are prohibited. Few know that hiking is possible in the Serengeti – with mobile tent camps. Furthermore, the animals in Arusha National Park have become so used to hikers that they let you get very close. What do you think about standing 5 meters from a giraffe?

Hiking on Mount Meru - life in the Tanzanian countryside

Today a 5-6 hour hike around the lush area of Mount Meru. A day to discover the daily life in the countryside of Tanzania. Our guide takes us up the slopes, then crosses over to the edge of Arusha National Park and then down to the river and back to the Blues & Chutney. Somewhere along the way with beautiful views we eat our lunch box.

Back at Blues & Chutney Country Club around 14: 30/15: 30. Then you will be quite happy to rest in the room or soak up the sun in the garden. Depending on which day of the week you can discover further. For example, a visit down to the village on the river Usa to visit the local shops. In addition, there is a market on Thursday and Sunday. You can choose to hike or be picked up and returned by car. Dinner at Blues & Chutney and a fire in the garden if the weather is right.

Hiking safari in Arusha National Park

Today early start for hiking safari in Arusha nationalpark. We walk with a ranger that  leads us through the landscape to find the animals. Hopefully you get close to both buffaloes and giraffes. We go to the waterfall and eat our pick-nick. Immediately afterwards, about 3 hours drive to Lake Manyara National Park begins. A short car safari through the park before we land in Green Camp Lake Manyara in the late afternoon.

Enjoy an afternoon at the camp, climb to the waterfall and soak up the sun. In the evening 3 course dinner under the stars. Once in your cozy bed, you can listen to the animal sounds around you.
Green Camp Lake Manyara

This small luxury tent camp is wonderfully located in the middle of nature at the bottom of a waterfall and a river. As a result, it feels like your hiking safari continues into the evening.

Some parts of the year, this river is the only source of water, which attracts hundreds of animals. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery and exciting visitors such as warthogs, elephants and buffaloes. Not only a day of hiking and car safaris, but also a night in nature.

Hiking safari and car safari Lake Manyara

Early hiking safari along Lake Manyara. Silence, lake, mountains and wildlife - a beauty that must be experienced to be understood. Thousands of pink flamingos on the lake and flocks of zebras on the plain. After lunch in the camp, we discover Lake Manyara National Park by car. And then another "I-do not want to leave" night in Lake Manyara Green Camp with dinner under the stars. Lastly on this eventful day, we share today's experiences in front of the campfire.

Car safari to the Serengeti

Time to move on to the legendary Serengeti National Park. Since this was originally the homeland of the Maasai, their language has given its name to the Serengeti which means "the plain". When this became a national park, the Maasai were instead allocated land in Ngorongoro's nature reserve.
Serengeti's beautiful nature

The road to the Serengeti is eventful with beautiful nature. We stop to enjoy the view down over the Ngorongoro crater. However, we do not go down into the crater because there are too many cars down there for it to feel right. Furthermore, you will see all the animals in the Serengeti as well.
Maasaj settlements

We take us through the fantastic landscape of Ngorongoro's nature reserve with its Maasai settlements. Red and blue dots everywhere because the Masai always dress in these colors. Then we enter the Serengeti. After a while the landscape changes and we start looking for the animals: lions, giraffes, impalas, etc. We arrive at Serengeti Green Camp, in the middle of nature, in the middle of the Serengeti, later in the afternoon.

Homemade 3-course dinner cooked over an open fire is served to your table in the open air. The meals are shared together in a family style.

Serengeti Green Camp
As this safari camp is set up according to where the migration of millions of wildebeest is, it is always right. And always in the heart of Tanzania's wilderness.

The tents have simple luxury comfortable beds with crisp bedding and an outdoor lounge to hang out in. A hot shower in the middle of the Serengeti from a classic bucket shower is an experience in itself.

Hiking safari Serengeti

The Serengeti National Park is special.  And full of animals - with a chance to see both lions, leopards and cheetahs. Consequently, a car safari - half day. Then picnic lunch and hiking safari on the Serengeti savannah. Walking in the Serengeti is a completely different experience than sitting in the car. A very special occasion that is done together with our specially trained guides. You get close to nature and wildlife. You feel the breeze, you feel the smell of both animals and nature. You see the little wildlife that is also going on.

Today we change camp to the specially set up tent camp used for hiking safaris in the Serengeti.

Serengeti Walking Camp .
A new camping experience during this hiking safari in Tanzania. The hiking camps are built to fit on a trailer. This makes it possible to reach more distant parts of the Serengeti. That way, the camp can always be where the animals are. The best way to see undisturbed wildlife.

Although this is simple camping, you sleep on beds with comfortable mattresses with duvets and cotton sheets. The bathroom is located behind the tent with latrines and shower showers.
