Detailed Itinerary – 4 Days Tanzania Safari
Day 1: Arrival at Mount Kilimanjaro Airport
On the first day of your 4 days Tanzania Budget Safari, your Jewel Safaris guide will meet you at the Mt. Kilimanjaro Airport and give you a short briefing of the upcoming itinerary. You will then be driven to Serengeti National Park and check into your accommodation.
Assuming you arrive in the morning, you will then be served lunch at your accommodation.
After lunch, you will be taken by your Jewel Safaris guide on an afternoon Game Drive on one of the sectors of the park. Serengeti has the most diverse ecosystem of all the National Parks in East Africa, and you will encounter many animals as you roam the plains.
Before nightfall, you will be taken back to your accommodation for dinner.
Day 2: Serengeti National Park
After an early breakfast on the second day of your 4 days Tanzania Camping Safari, you will go on a morning Game Drive. These early Game Drives are the most successful in terms of spotting the predators, such as the lions and hyenas. The temperatures are much cooler at this time of day, and the cats, in particular, are out hunting for food. It is very likely that you will encounter a ‘kill’ at this time of the day, as this is when they are most common.
You will then start your journey to the Ngorongoro Crater, at the eastern side of the Serengeti. Lunch will be either on the way to or at the Crater, depending on how the time is.
After lunch, you will continue with the journey to the Crater; arriving at your accommodation. You will be able to have a rest and afternoon tea at your accommodation.
Dinner at your accommodation
Day 3: Ngorongoro Crater Area
After another early breakfast on the third day of your 4 Days Tanzania Budget Safari, you will go on a Game Drive inside the Ngorongoro Crater itself. The crater is quite unique; in addition to having an enormous number of game animals, it is also the home of many Maasai People. Here they set up homesteads to co-exist with the wildlife. It is the only protected area in Tanzania where both wildlife and humans are permitted.
Lunch will be a picnic on the Crater floor, where you will encounter many animals roaming about while you take your lunch.
After the lunch break, you will continue on the Game Drive for the afternoon. There is an opportunity to travel on donkeys on a trail that exists at the rim of the Crater, a rather unique perspective on both the crater itself and the wildlife that exists around the edge.
Before nightfall, you will return to your lodgings for dinner in the late afternoon.
Day 4: Depart for Mount Kilimanjaro Airport
After breakfast on the last day of your 4 days Tanzania safari, you will drive to the Mt. Kilimanjaro Airport for your return flight. The drive will take you across parts of the Serengeti as well as through a number of villages, where there will be ample opportunity to visit the Masai artists preparing their handicrafts.
Lunch will be en route as you pass through the communities that exist in this area; your guide will take you to a local Tanzanian restaurant so you can taste the local dishes.
