Tanzania Cycle Safari Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Arusha

Situated close to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro, Arusha is a relaxed, friendly city with a wealth of famous sites on its doorstep.

Day 2 Meserani

Home to a bar covered in money and paraphernalia, a rotating community of Overlanders and a number of venomous snakes, of course, Meserani Snake Park is a true Tanzanian legend.

Day 3 Rift Valley

The Rift Valley is vast area of open country where giraffe, ostrich, gazelles and the occasional elephant can be seen grazing and the surrounding peaks provide spectacular views.

Day 5 Mto Wa Mbu

Situated around halfway between Arusha and Ngorongoro, Mto Wa Mbu is a tiny town located near three rivers which is known for its curios and red-skinned bananas.

Day 6 Ngorongoro Crater

Photographic opportunities abound in the Ngorongoro Crater, a massive volcanic caldera with so many animals, it's hard to know where to look first.

Day 7 Serengeti National Park

Teeming with animals and home to the famous migration of the wildebeest, the Serengeti is a marvel with rolling plains, iconic acacia trees and mesmerising skies.

Day 9 Wasso

A small town that's seldom visited by tourists, Wasso is the site of a local hospital which serves the surrounding communities.

Day 10 Lake Natron

Surrounded by arid plains and volcanic mountains, Lake Natron is a mineral-rich salt lake with some fascinating birdlife - it's one the world's largest breeding grounds for flamingos.

Day 12 Arusha

With Mt Meru looming in the background, Arusha has a host of good eateries, green spaces and a lively music scene to enjoy in between safaris.
