Gay Tanzania safari tourTanzania, the largest nation in East Africa, is without doubt one of the most exciting countries in the world. In fact, the Serengeti itself is so vast that you can drive for an entire day and not encounter any other human being. Other safari destinations can't offer this kind of experience to travellers, not anymore; Tanzania still can.

No destination can compete with the safari opportunities in this stunning East African lands and our 8-day adventure through some of the most famous and spectacular national parks and conservation areas on the planet is testament to that fact. An astonishing wealth of herding animals, as well as elephants, leopards, rhinos and large populations of lions roam the rolling grasslands and make for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Tanzania is classic Africa — The Great Rift Valley, Ngorongoro Crater, Maasai homelands and the celebrated plains of the Serengeti — and the country's wildlife parks and reserves are unrivalled for their abundance of wildlife.

Ngorongoro serves both as stunning ecological phenomenon and as home to a host of animals, including the 'Big Five' as well as astonishing bird-life, where the Serengeti, now synonymous with the term 'safari', is a land of superlatives that boasts more abundance and diversity of wildlife than anywhere on the planet.

Tanzania Gay Safari Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival in Arusha, Tanzania
Arusha, Tanzania gay tourYou are met on arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport and transferred to our hotel in Arusha.

Arusha, nestled in the shadow of Mt. Meru, is the starting point for the northern safari routes of Tanzania, and one of the country's most attractive towns. The surrounding area is primarily a highland forest park, and travellers always hope to catch a glimpse of Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance.

Overnight in/near Arusha.
Meals: Dinner

 

Day 2 - Arusha - Tarangire National Park
Gay Tanzania safari - Tarangire National ParkThis morning, after breakfast and a pre-safari briefing, we travel by road to Tarangire National Park.

Tarangire National Park is the most Southern of the accessible parks of northern Tanzania. Named after River Tarangire, the park covers an area of 2600 km˛. Much of the park is open grassy savannah, dotted with splendid specimens of Baobab trees, but there are also areas of swamp in the south. Is known for its river valley, wetlands, gently rolling hills, rocky out crops, acacia woodlands, and numerous baobab trees.

This afternoon we have a game drive through the park. This is the only park in Tanzania's northern circuit where one can easily view a large concentration of elephant all year round.

Overnight in Tarangire National Park.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

 

Day 3 - Tarangire National Park
Tarangire National Park, Tanzania gay safariMorning and afternoon game drives in the park.

Tarangire National Park is probably one of the least visited of the northern Tanzanian game parks, and retains a real air of undiscovered Africa. It lies a little distance to the south east of Lake Manyara and covers an area of approximately 2,850 square kilometers. Many consider this a great place to avoid the crowds that one may find in the other Northern Parks, and an equally brilliant place for viewing large herds of game. The scenery is striking with acacia woodlands dotted with ancient baobabs.

The park is located south of the large, open grass plains that make up southern Maasailand and contains large stretches of acacia woodland, and grassy savannah, accompanied by large baobab trees that shelter the wildlife and characterize the park. Animals that can be spotted in the park include the eland, lesser kudu, Kongoni, impala, zebra, gazelle, buffalo, wildebeest, leopard, elephant, rhino, fringe eared oryx and the lion. The park is an ornithologist's paradise at the best time of year--over 300 recorded species. We will spend the full day exploring the park, enjoying both games drives and, unique in East Africa, a walking safari.

Overnight in Tarangire National Park.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

 

Day 4 - Tarangire - Ngorongoro Conservation AreaNgorongoro Tanzania gay safari
Early this morning, with picnic lunches with us, we travel to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a beautiful rolling landscape with periodic views over the Ngorongoro Crater.

Called the 'eighth wonder of the world' and stretching across some 8300 sq km, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area boasts a blend of landscapes, wildlife, people and archaeology that is unsurpassed in Africa. The volcanoes, grasslands, waterfalls and mountain forests are home to an abundance of animals and to the Maasai. Ngorongoro Crater is one of the world's greatest natural spectacles and its magical setting and abundant wildlife never fail to enthrall visitors.

Upon arrival at the crater we immediately descend for a full day of exploration and wildlife viewing with lunch on the crater floor in this incredible setting, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We explore the crater, 20 km (13 miles) wide and 700 m (2,300 feet) high, where we may see the "Big Five" as well as many herbivores like wildebeest, gazelle, zebra and hippopotamus, as well as thousands of flamingos on Lake Magadi.

We then ascend ther crater wall to our overnight lodge on the crater rim.

Overnight in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

 

Day 5 - Ngorongoro - Serengeti National Park
Serengeti Tanzania gay safariToday we depart by road for the Serengeti; before descending onto the Serengeti Plain, we'll stop at a viewpoint overlooking the crater. The name "Serengeti" derives from a Maasai word meaning "Land-without-end." This is a land of superlatives, both in the vast landscape that surrounds you and the incredible biodiversity it supports. It is here that you have a chance to witness one of the most compelling natural dramas on earth -- the annual migration, a sight unparalleled anywhere in the natural world. Our afternoon game drive provides an excellent introduction to this fantastic landscape and the biodiversity it supports.

Overnight in the Serengeti National Park.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

 

Day 6 - Serengeti National Park
Serengeti National Park gay safari tourToday we have a full day of game viewing on the Serengeti. We will visit the "kopjes," a series of low, incongruous hills dotting the open landscape that often provide a vantage point for hungry predators contemplating the endless stream of hoofed animals parading past them. Depending on the season and the timing of the rains, up to 1.5 million wildebeest and a half a million zebra embark on a single-minded and perilous quest for water and grazing land. Following this spectacle, of course, are the meat-eating opportunists, hoping to capitalize on the physical toll this journey exacts on the desperate grazers. Even outside of "migration" time, large herds are still seen as they bear their young and feed, gaining strength for their annual return to the park's northern reaches. Resident species that do not migrate make for rewarding animal viewing in any season.

It may be possible to take an optional hot-air balloon safari over the plains at daybreak; today is the best day to participate in this activity - details will be sent sent upon booking.

Overnight in the Serengeti National Park.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

 

Day 7 - Serengeti - Olduvai Gorge - Gibb's Farm - Lake Manyara
Tanzania gay safari - Olduvai GorgeToday we retrace our with a stop at Olduvai Gorge, site of the Leakey excavations in the 1960s and 70s that established this region as the prehistoric habitat of some of the earliest species of hominids with some finds dating back 1.8 million years. Experts in the life sciences have argued that the Olduvai contribution to the story of human origins remains unsurpasse by any other prehistoric site in the world. A small museum on site outlines the unique geological and human history of the area.

Our lunch stop is Gibb's Farm. Founded during German colonial times and still privately owned, Gibb's Farm is now a small hotel perched on the outer slopes of the Ngorongoro Highlands, surrounded by coffee plantations with long views over lush and beautiful agricultural country.

We continue to our lodge on a ridge overlooking Lake Manyara, the smallest of the northern parks in Tanzania (330 sq km, of which two thirds is the actual lake). The park hosts a wide variety of vegetation, ranging from savannah to ground water forest to riparian habitats. The park is host to thousands of pelicans, ibis and flamingo that can be heard from afar. Other common visitors to this beautiful lake are hippos and the majestic African fish eagle, which can be seen swooping down from its perch to snatch a fish from the still waters of the lake.

Overnight at Lake Manyara.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

 

Day 8 - Lake Manyara Game Drive - Arusha - Departure
Lake Manyara Tanzania gay safariThis morning we descend back down the escarpment and into Lake Manyara National Park, the smallest of the northern parks in Tanzania (330 sq km, of which two thirds is the actual lake) hosting a wide variety of vegetation, ranging from savannah to ground water forest to riparian habitats. The park is host to thousands of pelicans, ibis, and flamingo that can be heard from afar. Other common visitors to this beautiful lake are hippos and the majestic African fish eagle, which can be seen swooping down from its perch to snatch a fish from the still waters of the lake. Wildlife interest at Lake Manyara is not confined to bird life only; animals such as buffalo, elephant, giraffe, impala, hippo and a great variety of smaller animals also inhabit the park.

Leaving the park, we make a stop at the village of Mto Wa Mbu ('Mosquito Creek'), famous for its lively cosmopolitan atmosphere and red bananas, which taste the same as regular bananas but their skins are a startling bright red. We continue to Arusha to connect with homeward evening flights.

LAND ONLY PASSENGERS need to take into account our morning journey when booking their flights out of Arusha (JRO). Your departure should occur no earlier than 6:00 pm.

SAFARI NJEMA!

Trip Notes

Group Size
6-18 plus Guide/Tour Leader

 

Staff & Support
For groups of six or fewer participants (one vehicle), will be led / guided by one of our local expert driver-guides. Only multi-vehicle groups will be assigned an Outgoing Adventures Tour Leader.

 

Accommodation
Hotels and lodges used are stunning, atmospheric 5-star properties with hot water, electricity, mosquito netting, dining areas, bar, swimming pools. Remote lodges are not air-conditioned though most are at higher elevations where heat is not a factor. Hotel porter service is available throughout. Single rooms are limited in number and likely smaller than twins. Many lodges are quite spread out and you will need to be able to walk up to 10 minutes from public areas to your room.

 

Transport & Travel Conditions
Some road journeys are long and rough, possibly dusty, though most times we reach our next destination in time for lunch. We travel via well-maintained, rugged 4WD vehicles; the same vehicles, with roofs that pop up, will be used for our game drives in parks and reserves. Please note that air-conditioned safari vehicles are non-existent in East Africa, but humidity is low and an open window usually suffices for comfort. This is not a physical tour, but you should be prepared for some bumpy/dusty roads and early starts.

 

Weather / Seasonality
This tour is offered twice a year, outside of the rainy periods that could make animal spotting tough and transport difficult (Nov-April). June-Aug coincides with the coolest and driest period, though also the busiest and most expensive due to optimal conditions and the European holiday period. Oct is often warmer and dusty though game viewing is excellent due to short grass and animals congregating around water sources.

 

Out Factor
Decked out in safari garb, savouring a gin & tonic, grazing giraffes silhouetted against an African sunset... need we say more?

Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge, Lake Manyara

Lake Manyara Serena Safari LodgeStanding high on the edge of a towering terracotta escarpment with panoramic views over the glittering alkaline waters of Lake Manyara, Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge offers a unique blend of safari opportunities, peace and tranquillity, wildlife discovery, and ornithological richness. The unprecedented range of high-adventure sports, meanwhile, include mountain biking, canoeing and forest walks, while cultural choices include tours of the neighbouring villages and dance displays by the local Iraqw and sukuma people.

Designed to reflect the brilliance of Lake Manyara's unique birdlife, the architectural motif melds swooping avian curves with the gentle concentric patterns of traditional Maasai 'Bomas' , while the vibrantly coloured wall frescoes depict the colourful intricacy of bird migratory patterns.

Lake Manyara Serena Safari LodgeGrouped around a central 'vanishing horizon' pool, this highly unusual lodge features a simple timbered reception area, built in traditional African style, which is accessed via a bridge over a small stream. Beyond reception, lies the central dining room, bar and veranda, below which lies the pool. Perched on the very edge of the cliffs, with stunning views of Lake Manyara National Park is the pool bar and observation point. Dotted around the grounds, all with views over the lake, are a series of circular two-storey 'rondavels', which house the rooms.

 

Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge, Ngorongoro

Ngorongoro Serena Safari LodgeRegularly voted one of the best hotels in the world, unique Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge in Tanzania clings to the rim of the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, the largest and most perfect volcanic crater on Earth. Long and low, the lodge is built from local river stone and camouflaged with indigenous vines. Designed to blend completely into the landscape, it is entirely invisible from the floor of the Crater 600 metres below.

Known as 'the eighth wonder of the world' the Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa's best-known wildlife arenas. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it offers a unique biosphere, which has remained virtually unchanged since the dawn of time. Deep within the Crater, enclosed by towering walls, some 25,000 large mammals wander the plains, lakes and forests of 'the land that time forgot', dominated by enormous bull elephants, rhinos and lions.

Ngorongoro Serena Safari LodgeHugging the contours of the jagged Crater rim, this luxury safari lodge takes its inspiration from the so-called 'Cradle of Mankind', the prehistoric site of Olduvai Gorge, which lies close by. Linked by arched stone passages and timbered decks, its walls are decorated with stylized prehistoric cave paintings and lit by flaring torches. At the stone heart of the lodge burns a glowing fire, which is kept constantly alight. Decorated with cave paintings, the rooms are strung around the Crater rim. Each has its own rock- enclosed balcony, and all enjoy completely uninterrupted views of the volcanic amphitheatre far below. The location, the service and the luxury accommodation make Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge the ultimate destination for a unique safari experience in Tanzania.
