5 days  Camping Tanzania Safari Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival and Tarangire National Park

Our 5 days camping Tanzania safari begins with the excitement of anticipation, as we arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport, where the spirit of adventure is palpable. After a warm welcome, we embark on a short journey to Tarangire National Park, renowned for its high density of elephants and baobab trees. As we set off on our first game drive, the vastness of the African savannah unfolds before us.

The park is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, with large herds of elephants gracefully moving across the landscape, and majestic baobabs standing sentinel over the plains. Tarangire is also home to buffaloes, lions, giraffes, and a variety of antelopes, each contributing to the rich tapestry of life here and make it to a fine destination for camping safaris in Tanzania. As the sun sets, painting the sky with hues of orange and pink, we head to our campsite.

The first night of your Tanzania camping safari is spent under the stars, listening to the nocturnal symphony of the African bush. The campfire crackles as stories are shared, and the aroma of a freshly prepared dinner fills the air. With comfortable tents and warm sleeping bags, we settle in for a night of rest before the adventures that await us.

Day 2 & 3: Camping Tanzania Safari in The Endless Plains of Serengeti

With the break of dawn, we pack up camp and set out for the fabled Serengeti National Park, a name that resonates with the essence of the wild. The drive to Serengeti itself is an adventure, as we traverse diverse landscapes and observe the changing flora and fauna.

Upon arrival, we are greeted by the endless plains that have made Serengeti synonymous with camping safari. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to the Great Migration, where millions of wildebeest and zebras traverse its plains in search of fresh grazing. Even outside the migration period, the Serengeti teems with wildlife, including the ‘Big Five’ – lions, leopards, elephants, buffaloes, and rhinos.

We spend two days of this camping Tanzania safari exploring different regions of the park, each with its unique characteristics and wildlife. Our experienced guide ensures we are at the right place at the right time, maximizing our chances of witnessing unforgettable sights such as a pride of lions on the hunt or a solitary leopard lounging in a tree.

As night falls, we gather around the campfire once again. Our campsite in the Serengeti offers an authentic safari experience, with the sounds of the wild as our lullaby. Camping here is about being one with nature, and the thrill of sleeping in an unfenced area where animals roam free is exhilarating.

Day 4: Camping Tanzania Safari in Ngorongoro Crater

On the fourth day our camping Tanzania safari, we depart the Serengeti with cherished memories and head to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The centerpiece here is the Ngorongoro Crater, a vast volcanic caldera that serves as a natural enclosure for an extraordinary variety of wildlife.

As we descend the 600-meter high walls of the crater, a whole new world unveils itself. The Ngorongoro Crater is often referred to as ‘Africa’s Eden’ or ‘The Eighth Wonder of the World’. Its fertile floor is home to over 25,000 large mammals, including the endangered black rhino, the elusive cheetah, and large prides of lions.

The crater also boasts an impressive birdlife, with pink flamingos adorning the soda lake and birds of prey circling the skies. Game drives in this camping Tanzania safari here are rich with photographic opportunities and the chance to observe the intricate balance of this unique ecosystem.

As evening approaches, we continue with our camping Tanzania safari to the rim of the crater, where our campsite offers a stunning viewpoint. The high altitude brings cooler temperatures, and as we gather around the campfire, the crater floor below us is shrouded in mist, adding to the mystique of this ancient landscape.

Day 5: Departure- Camping Tanzania Safari

On final day of your camping Tanzania safari, we wake up to a crisp morning on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. After a hearty breakfast, we pack up and head back to Arusha or Kilimanjaro International Airport, where our safari experience comes to a close.
