Tanzania Classic Safaris

6 Days / 5 Nights Tanzania Classic Safaris – Itinerary Highlights 

Day 1: Dar-Es-Salaam to Ruaha National Park         
Day 2: Game drive in Ruaha National Park   
Day 3: Hiking in Udzungwa Mountains
Day 4: Game drive in Mikumi National Park
Day 5: Game drive in Mikumi National Park
Day 6: Game drive in Mikumi National Park; departure

Day 1: Dar-Es-Salaam to Ruaha National Park         
After breakfast, we’ll pick you up in Dar- Es-Salaam and drive to Ruaha National Park for an evening game drive. This is a remote area with a dramatic topography of mountains, rivers and plains. Its rugged beauty is only matched by the variety and density of wildlife and exotic bird life. The park is rich in plants and animals like the greater kudu which cannot be found in any other national park and boasts an almost untouched and unexplored ecosystem, making visitors’ safari experience truly unique. You will therefore retire to a designated camp for dinner and overnight.

Day 2: Game drive in Ruaha National Park   
After breakfast, depart for a full-day game drive in Ruaha National Park. The park covers 12,950 square kilometers primarily of dry savanna. The forest contains miombo woodlands, acacia woodlands, riverine forests and terminalia scrub. Ruaha National Park has a high diversity of plants and animals including over 450 bird species, elephants, buffaloes, antelopes and some rare and endangered species like wild dogs. Other animals in the park include lions, leopards, cheetah, giraffes, zebras, elands, impala, bat eared foxes and jackals. You will therefore retire to a designated camp for dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Hiking in Udzungwa Mountains
After an early breakfast we will depart for Udzungwa Mountains National Park. Udzungwa is the largest and most biologically diverse of a chain of a dozen large forest-swathed mountains that rise majestically from the flat coastal scrub of eastern Tanzania. Known collectively as the Eastern Arc Mountains, this archipelago of isolated massifs has also been dubbed the ‘African Galapagos’ for its treasure-trove of endemic plants and animals, most well-known of which is the delicate African violet. After a picnic lunch, we’ll proceed to a mountain hike via the campsite’s three trails. There will be plenty of things to see, including beautiful vegetation, forests, waterfalls, birds, primates, butterflies, bushbucks, dickers, baboons and monkeys. You will therefore retire to a designated camp for dinner and overnight.

Day 4: Game drive in Mikumi National Park
After breakfast we’ll travel to Mikumi National Park for game viewing. Mikumi National Park abuts the northern border of Africa’s largest game reserve – the Selous – and is transected by the surfaced road between Dar Es Salaam and Iringa. It is thus the most accessible part of a 47,000 square mile (75,000 square kilometer) tract of wilderness that stretches east almost as far as the Indian Ocean. The open horizons and abundant wildlife of the Mkata Floodplain, the popular centerpiece of Mikumi, draw frequent comparisons to the more famous Serengeti Plains. You will therefore retire to a designated camp for dinner and overnight.

Day 5: Game drive in Mikumi National Park
Start the day with an early morning game drive before breakfast. In the afternoon, we’ll continue with the game drive and have a packed lunch. Criss-crossed by a good circuit of game-viewing roads, the Mkata Floodplain is perhaps the most reliable place in Tanzania for sightings of the powerful eland, the world’s largest antelope. The equally impressive greater kudu and sable antelope haunt the miombo-covered foothills of the mountains that rise from the park’s borders. Lions survey their grassy kingdom and the zebra, wildebeest, impala and buffalo herds that migrate across it from the flattened tops of termite mounds, or sometimes, during the rains, from perches high in the trees. You will therefore retire to a designated camp for dinner and overnight.

Day 6: Game drive in Mikumi National Park; departure
Enjoy a morning game drive in Mikumi National Park. After an early lunch at the camp you’ll head back to Dar Es Salaam for your flight back home or to Zanzibar for a beach holiday.
