TRIP DETAILS

5 days Marangu Route

Marangu Route is also known as the “Coca-Cola” or “tourist” route. It is the easiest and shortest route to the summit. This is also the only route with the comforts of sleeping huts at every campsite with solar lights and comfortable beds. The huts are communal, and the bunks have a sponge mattress and pillow.

There are 60 beds at both Mandara and Kibo Huts and 120 beds at Horombo Hut. Bathrooms and running water are available at the two lower huts. Mens’ and ladies’ latrines are available at the last camp but are very basic.

All climbing groups, often from several countries around the world, share meals in dining huts providing a jovial and energetic atmosphere.

This route is usually done in 5 days but can be done in 6 days for better acclimatization. The extra day can be spent resting at Horombo or climbing the small peak of Mawenzi.

TRIP DETAILS

Experience an incredible Tanzania wildlife safari in 7 Days. Located slightly off the main safari route, Tarangire National Park is a lovely, quiet park in Northern Tanzania. It is most famous for its elephant migration, birding and authentic safari atmosphere.  The majority of travelers to the region either miss out Tarangire altogether or venture into the park for a matter of hours – leaving swathes of Tarangire virtually untouched!

With a game viewing area that is roughly ten times the size of nearby Manyara NP and a concentration of game that is exceptional from July through to October, this seasonal Tanzania safari park is a little gem on the Northern safari circuit, especially if you love elephants!

Tarangire is the surprise package on the Northern circuit.  Often overshadowed by the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire has huge concentrations of animals in the peak months and a fraction of the visitor numbers of any of the other Northern parks.

The Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtakingly beautiful setting and the best place in Tanzania to see the Big Five. The Ngorongoro Crater and surrounding highlands together form one of Africa’s most beautiful regions. Volcanic craters form stunning backdrops to some of the most fertile and richest grazing grounds in Africa.  The most famous such crater is without question Ngorongoro, the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and home to the highest density of big game in Africa, including all the big five and plenty of predators. Ngorongoro is justifiably one of the continent’s most famous safari destinations. After this experience, you will also visit Lake Manyara

Lake Manyara is a lovely scenic park on the road from Arusha to the Ngorongoro Crater, famous for its tree climbing lions, good elephants, and baboons. The lake itself takes up much of the park, leaving a strip of land running along its shores where game concentrates.

Often visited for an afternoon game drive on the way to Ngorongoro, it would be a shame to miss out Manyara if you’re driving straight past it – but it’s really not up there with the heavyweight big boys in terms of game viewing.  However, if you’re going on to Ngorongoro and Serengeti, you’ll see plenty of game there as well.

TRIP DETAILS

Travel through Tanzania in 5 days. During this safari in Tanzania, you will discover some of Tanzania’s jams. First, you will visit Tarangire National park. Located just a few hours drive from the town of Arusha, Tarangire is a popular stop for safaris traveling through the northern circuit on their way to Ngorongoro and the Serengeti. But there is much the park has to offer, it extends into two game controlled areas and the wildlife is allowed to move freely throughout.

After the Serengeti, which we will also visit, Tarangire has the greatest concentration of wildlife in Tanzania; even in the dry season wildlife is bountiful due to the Tarangire River. Large herd of elephants and migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, gazelle gather and not surprisingly the big predator follow. Tarangire is also one of the few places in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as oryx and gerenuk are regularly spotted. It is also known for its spectacular baobab trees, breathtaking views of the Masaai Steppe and mountains to the south. After Tarangire, we will continue this safari in Tanzania to Serengeti.

The park lives up to its ancient Maasai name “Siringet”, meaning “endless open plains”. It is oldest and most popular national park in Tanzania. While a sizeable part of the park is made up of seasonally flooded plains, forest and shrub savannah, the Serengeti is mostly about one thing: grass. Golden in the dry season, green and dotted with wildflowers after the rains. Every now and then kopjes – rocky outcrops – interrupt the infinite horizon.

It is the home of numerous wildebeest, which migrate annually and it is an epic theatre to experience where also zebras, gazelles trek for fresh grazing. Approximately 3,800 lions, 350 cheetahs, 7,500 spotted hyenas, 12,000 giraffes and 11,000 elephants roam the savannah. The Serengeti offers arguably the most dazzling game viewing in Africa.

Last but not least we will visit Ngorongoro park and crater. The Ngorongoro Crater is protected around Lake Natron in the northeast, to Lake Enyasi in the south and Lake Manyara to the east. Once an active volcano, what makes it especially unique is the collapse of its cone, forming a crater that goes 610 meters deep, 20 kilometres in diameter and covers an area of 311 sq km.

As spectacular as it sounds, this massive crater only accounts for a tenth of the entire Conservation Area. Next to its geologically special features, the crater is home to almost every mammal of the African plains, including the endangered black rhino, and the densest population of predators in Africa. Birdlife is also extremely abundant, in particular, flamingos affected by the fresh water from Lake Magadi on the crater floor. This safari in Tanzania will give you an unforgettable experience!

TRIP DETAILS

Have the chance to experience the fullest from this African wildlife safari tours. With beautiful sceneries and wildlife from Kenya to Tanzania. This trip offers unparalleled game viewing with evening relaxation in excellent quality tented camps and game lodges. Discover the best game viewing circuit in East Africa. From Nairobi to Amboseli, Arusha, Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Masai Mara and Lake Naivasha, as you join a group of six others using your 4×4 vehicle and driver guide.

The safari through Amboseli National Park is one of Kenya’s premier wildlife experiences. This is the best place in Africa to get close to free-ranging elephants. Meet the nomadic Masai tribespeople, Africa’s last great warriors. Cross into Tanzania to visit Arusha’s famous souvenir markets or continue straight on to the cool heights of Ngorongoro. The Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest caldera, an extinct volcano that is home to approximately 25,000 wild animals.

Continue your African adventure past the Olduvlai Gorge on your way through the Serengeti game park for world class game viewing. Here you will have the chance to spot lion, leopard, cheetah and more! Finish your safari in the Masai Mara, the world’s top game park, where you will see elephant, giraffe, lion and many more animals with your skilled safari guide. Venture into the thick of the plains in search of zebras, gazelles, impalas, and of course wildebeests, who thunderously feed and migrate from the Serengeti and through the Mara area every year. Continue to Lake Naivasha for Kenya’s only boat safari and nature walk on Crescent Island. Finish in Nairobi where you’ll enjoy time for some final sightseeing, souvenir shopping or dinner before returning home from this incredible adventure.

No wildlife event on the planet rivals East Africa’s Great Migration for sheer drama. Each year, the enormous herds of wildebeest and zebra, 2 million strong, make a great circuit across the Serengeti Plains as they travel from Tanzania into Kenya’s famed Maasai Mara and back, following the new grass that sprouts with the seasonal rains. A host of predators follows in stealthy pursuit. To witness the migration in the Mara is on many a safari aficionado’s bucket list, and our private luxury mobile camp places you in the heart of the action. There’s simply no nature adventure on Earth to match it! Back at camp each night, sip sundowners before sumptuous dinners and exchange stories around the crackling campfire under a sky full of glittering stars.

Without a doubt, one of the planet’s most amazing nature events is the massive seasonal movement of creatures in Africa’s Great Migration. To witness hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra traversing the Maasai Mara with predators in pursuit has no parallel on Earth—and that’s why, if you’re making a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Africa to see the migration, you need to be sure you’re choosing a full, intimate, close-up experience of this stunning phenomenon. Many companies tack the word “migration” onto their trip name, but their guests actually end up in crowded parks, cramped vehicles and large safari lodges far from wildlife corridors.

TRIP DETAILS

This eleven-day safari offers a unique opportunity to experience the very best that western Uganda has to offer. The safari combines the quintessential East African safari experience with an unmistakably Ugandan twist. Starting with the Rhinos at Ziwa and then heading off to Murchison Falls, Queen Elizabeth National Park and Lake Mburo will give you the best possible chance of viewing the Big 5. The Ugandan twist comes in the form of the chimpanzee trekking in Kibale and of course gorilla trekking in Bwindi. There aren’t many places in the world where you will be able to see such diverse spectrum of wildlife. But the real gem is undoubtedly the people, culture, and heritage which you will experience in abundance on this trip and whose interactions with you will live long in your memory. So you will have game drives, a boat cruise, visit the rhino sanctuary, have cultural excursions and go on gorilla and chimpanzee trekking!

Central Uganda
The Central Region is home to the two principal cities, Kampala which is the capital city and Entebbe. Although the distance between the two cities is only around 40kms the journey time is severely traffic dependant. This region of Uganda is characterized by hilly terrain with marshland valleys. Due to the curved shoreline of Lake Victoria both cities are close to the Lake and can act as a gateway to the rest of Uganda’s other principal cities to the east, west, and north of Uganda. The region also acts as a good starting point for shorter weekend breaks to islands on Lake Victoria. The Central Region is the historical seat of the Baganda Kingdom with the Kabakas Palace, Kisubi Royal Tombs and other Royal sites found here.

Western Uganda
The Western Region has houses the majority of the National Parks in Uganda. Lake Mburo, Mgahinga, Bwindi, Queen Elizabeth, Kibale, Rwenzori, Semiliki, and Murchison all feature in this region. The region also has a rich cultural history with a lot of traditions still prevalent today. The Kingdoms of Ankole, Bunyoro, Kigezi and Toro all hail from this part of Uganda. Each tribe has a discrete heritage which you can see in abundance as you explore this area of Uganda.  Due to the climate and altitude in Western Uganda, there are many Tea and Coffee plantations dotted over the landscape which is also punctuated by stunning natural crater lakes and forests making a journey into the area an adventure in itself. But it doesn’t stop there, Lake Buyonyi,
Lake Mutanda, Lake Edward, Lake George and Lake Albert are also found here, bringing with them an unrivaled beauty that can only be found in this region of Uganda.

This safari features three days and two nights from Nairobi to Masai Mara. This is a gem for any traveller because you will see large numbers of wildlife in their natural habitat. This is also an excellent tour for bird watchers.

Masai Mara:
Mara means “mottled”, which is how the Maasai gave it its name due to its expansive open plains mottled with woodlands. Situated in the Great Rift Valley, the Maasai Mara is proudly Kenya’s largest national reserve with an area of 320 square km.

Although it is actually the northernmost part of a larger ecosystem encompassing Kenya’s Loita plains and Tanzania’s Serengeti, which makes up a total of 25,000 square km. The largest river, the Mara River, runs north to south through the reserve, towards Lake Victoria through Tanzania. That being said, wildlife is bountiful in the area, game viewing is exciting anytime throughout the year – Although the peak is during the annual wildebeest migration from July to October.

There is a large number of other plains game include zebras, different species of antelopes, giraffes, and warthog, which are residents of the are all year round. The Mara is a perfect kingdom for the lions but there are also smaller predators such as cheetahs, hyenas, and jackals that roam the Mara area.

Another natural inhabitant is, of course, the Maasai people. A semi-nomadic ethnic group known as fierce warriors and have largely remained very independent, staying strong to their traditional values and lifestyle. The Maasai never hunt, but live peacefully alongside the wildlife in harmony, this co-existence makes the Maasai Mara one of the world’s most interesting and unique wilderness regions. For more information about Kenya, click here, and for more information about Masai Mara, click here.

They are falling for you! Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda’s largest national park and very rich in wildlife, with the famous River Nile, one of the world’s longest rivers flowing through. The activities in this park include game safari – Big 5 Safari (elephants, kob, buffalo, lions, giraffes and even the elusive leopard) boat cruise (hippos, Nile crocodiles, water birds, get up-close to the spectacular falls), and hiking to the famous waterfalls of the River Nile. Uganda Murchison falls national park will give you an unforgettable experience.

A little bit more about Murchison FallsBig 5 Safari

These falls are defined by external war between the rock and the water. They were also known as the Kabarenga falls. These falls have a permanent rainbow over the battlefield due to the waters that violently compress through a narrow gorge, spraying misty droplets along their wake over a 50m radius and this causes a continuous roar of the waters.  Most of the visitors love to book accommodation near these falls so as to continuously hear the roaring waters throughout the night and the cold breeze that comes making the nights of your adventure perfect. Visitors should also have boat safari on the Victoria Nile River; this would reach its dead end in front of the turbulent Murchison falls though the boat cannot get you close to the falls given the fierce current as you get close.

For more information, visit the Murchison Falls website.

The Big Five can be found together in South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Namibia and Botswana, though obviously not in all parks so do make sure you research thoroughly to avoid any disappointment. African wildlife species are each incredible in their own way.

During the safari, we will have a boat cruise on the Kazinga channel. Along the channel, local people are seen loading their canoes, fetching water as buffalos wallowing, elephants shower, hippos roam around, crocodiles basking on the same banks. Watch the unbelievable life at the fishing village. Tones of storks, spoonbills, cormorants, kingfishers, lapwings, pelicans. You can expect to see buffalo, crocodile, bathing elephant, and of course a range of beautiful birds.

TRIP DETAILS

Founded in 1977 by Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick D.B.E, in honour of the memory of her late husband, famous naturalist and founding Warden of Tsavo East National Park, David Leslie William Sheldrick MBE, the DSWT claims a rich and deeply rooted family history in wildlife and conservation.

Mission statement

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust embraces all measures that compliment the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife. These include anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness, addressing animal welfare issues, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, rescuing and hand rearing elephant and rhino orphans, along with other species that can ultimately enjoy a quality of life in wild terms when grown.

At the heart of the DSWT’s conservation activities is the Orphans’ Project, which has achieved world-wide acclaim through its hugely successful elephant and rhino rescue and rehabilitation program. The Orphans’ Project exists to offer hope for the future of Kenya’s threatened elephant and rhino populations as they struggle against the threat of poaching for their ivory and horn, and the loss of habitat due to human population pressures and conflict, deforestation and drought.

To date the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has successfully hand-raised over 150 infant elephants and has accomplished its long-term conservation priority by effectively reintegrating orphans back into the wild herds of Tsavo, claiming many healthy wild-born calves from former-orphaned elephants raised in our care.

The DSWT has remained true to its principles and ideals, remaining a sustainable and flexible organization. Guided by experienced and dedicated Trustees and assisted by an Advisory Committee of proactive naturalists with a lifetime of wildlife and environmental experience, the Trust takes effective action and achieves long-lasting results.

Chaired by Daphne Sheldrick, the DSWT is run by Angela Sheldrick, the daughter of David and Daphne, who has been managing all of the Trust’s activities for over a decade. Growing up in Tsavo and later in the Nairobi National Park, Angela has been part of the Trust’s vision from the start, supported by her husband Robert Carr-Hartley and their two boys Taru and Roan, who are passionate about Kenya’s wildlife and eager to ensure that David and Daphne’s legacy continues.

In 2004 the DSWT was incorporated as a Charitable Company in the U.K. and granted charitable status by the Charities Commission, whilst during the same year the Trust has also attained US Charitable status enhancing its corporate funding capability under the guidance of the U.S. Friends of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

Discover the untamed nature of Uganda’s Kidepo Valley Nation Park. It will be like entering the setting of the Lion King movie. In 5 days you will explore the Northen Part of the country, go to the Kidepo valley, and meet the local Karamajong people!

Nestled in the wild frontier region of Uganda, Kidepo Valley National Park is apparently the most isolated national park in Uganda but still stands out to be one of the best virgin places every wildlife viewer can ever visit in Uganda. This virgin national park is undoubtedly among the best wilderness areas in Africa, harboring a couple of extinct species of wildlife that can’t be found in any other Ugandan national park. Kidepo is right at the core of a Savannah landscape right next to a few mountainous bodies. Kidepo national park is a true gem with a huge abundance of wildlife. It remains a true rendition of tourism in Uganda but remains unknown to many! Kidepo Valley National Park was gazetted into a national park in the year 1962 and currently hosts over 75 species of mammals and 470 species of birds. All these fall in a prime game viewing location. Mammal species include: elephants, buffaloes, cheetahs, bush pig, leopards, Burchell’s zebra, oribis, giraffes, Jacksons’ hartebeest, rare patas monkey and reedbucks.

The local communities around the park include pastoral Karamojong people, similar to the Maasai of Kenya, and the IK, a hunter-gatherer tribe whose survival is threatened. Many Karamojong like Masai of Kenya, prefer to wear “traditional” dress of a blanket -like a shawl with bright red colors. Experience their ‘manyatta’ (homesteads) and also the kraal’s where their cows stay.

TRIP DETAILS

Go on this 6-day adventure and be really part of Tanzania’s stunning nature and wildlife. Tanzania tented safari is a fantastic opportunity to explore Tanzania safari in a Tented style. Visiting the unique Ngorongoro Crater known as Africa’s Eden. The Ngorongoro Crater is protected around Lake Natron in the northeast, to Lake Enyasi in the south and Lake Manyara to the east. Once an active volcano, what makes it especially unique is the collapse of its cone, forming a crater that goes 610 meters deep, 20 kilometers in diameter and covers an area of 311 sq km. Next, to its geologically special features, the crater is home to almost every mammal of the African plains, including the endangered black rhino, and the densest population of predators in Africa. Birdlife is also extremely abundant, in particular, flamingos affected by the fresh water from Lake Magadi on the crater floor.

Also, you will visit Lake Manyara Locked in between the Rift Valley Escarpment, Lake Manyara, the village of Mto wa Mbu and several farms, the 30% land area of Lake Manyara National Park is an exceptional jewel. It is part of the expansive Maasai ecosystem and a corridor for the great migration of huge herds of mammals towards the north and the south.

Last but not least, you will visit Serengeti National Park. The park lives up to its ancient Maasai name “Siringet”, meaning “endless open plains”. It is oldest and most popular national park in Tanzania. Famous for the big cat and Wildebeest Migration, The Park which contains the largest concentration of wildlife in the world. Nothing more romantic than spending a day in the unspoiled wilderness of Tanzania which allows you to accommodate in a deluxe style as you have the uninterrupted freedom to the lifetime experie8nce of safari adventure in Tanzania.
