Itinerary

Arrive in Arusha, the busy city where many safaris in Tanzania start.
Drive through the land of the Maasai on the way to a small village inhabited by the Umburu people. Make new friends and learn about their customs and culture on a tour of the village and surrounding farmlands.
Sweeping plains filled with an abundance of iconic animals and birdlife, the Serengeti is one of nature's best achievements. Buckle up for game drives that will provide the opportunity to spot zebras, lions, elephants and more. An optional sunrise balloon ride over the Serengeti plains provides memories to last a lifetime.
Travel to the astonishing Ngorongoro Crater, home to some 30,000 animals including leopards, impalas, zebras, hippos and endangered black rhinos. A trip to the crater floor provides countless wildlife-spotting moments and photo opportunities.
Visit the kids of the Amani Children's Home, a special Intrepid Travel-supported project that houses and educates orphans and street kids. Stay overnight in the remote Tanzanian village of Marangu.
Witness the day-to-day life of the crop-growing Chagga people and sample the flavours of their traditional cuisine. Journey to the remote and misty Usambara Mountains and enjoy guided walks through the lush forest.
In free time, explore the markets and historic buildings of the picturesque city of Dar es Salaam.
Catch the ferry to exotic Zanzibar, enjoy a tour of a fragrant spice plantation or simply lie back on the beach.
