10 Days Tanzania Photographic Safari

Your 10 Days Tanzania Photographic Safari adventure begins in Tarangire National Park, famed for its ancient baobab trees and massive elephant herds. Journey to the heart of the Serengeti for stunning close-ups of zebra, wildebeest and gazelle and their predators, lions, cheetahs, and leopards. Close your trip with Tanzania’s main event — the Serengeti Great Migration — where immense herds of zebra and wildebeest converge on the Mara River ecosystem. Put your wildlife photography skills to the test in the thick of the action.

It's important that your guide is dedicated to photography and understands the technical aspects of taking a good wildlife photo. Vehicle positioning, for instance, is essential as it ensures the best angle for you and your camera in any given situation. The guide also needs to be committed to waking up early and staying out late in order to maximize times for great light and movement of wildlife. It's also essential that the safari vehicle has sufficient space, as operating bulky equipment in a car full of other guests can get awkward.

Itineraries

Day 1

Arrive in Arusha

Overnight at one of the local hotels where you can enjoy an excellent meal and get a good night’s sleep.

Day 2

Arusha National Park

An early morning start where we’ll head to Arusha National Park. The drive from the entrance gate to takes you through thick mountain forest, where acrobatic monkeys (Colobus monkeys) are seen most. We’ll continue driving up the mountain where you’ll be immersed in the sights and sounds o f nature (birds, waterfalls and sometimes Colobus monkeys). We’ll reach a stopping point where we can take a short hike and enjoy the views of Mt. Meru and Mt. Kilimanjaro. Don’t forget to charge your camera batteries today!We’ll have an excellent lunch here or down close to the river. After breakfast, we’ll drive near the lakes for game viewing. Near the lakes, you will spot loads of giraffes, buffaloes and wildebeest and zebra. Overnight in Arusha

Day 3

Tarangire National Park

After breakfast, we will head to Tarangire National Park. The drive takes about two and a half hours, but as soon as we leave Arusha the vegetation changes. It is a rider here, with some thorny trees and open grass plains. These beautiful, green rolling hills are also a grazing area for Masai people. We’ll drive along the Tarangire River, where we’ll spot many animals. Tarangire is famous for its Elephants; there are more Elephants here than elsewhere else in northern Tanzania. The park has lots of woodland with lots of baobab trees. These baobabs can get up to 52 meters (171 feet) in height. Evening drives are absorbing and allow guests to see animals that they wouldn’t normally see during the daytime trips.

Day 4

Manyara National Park

After a leisurely breakfast, we’ll drive to Lake Manyara National Park. Manyara is about two hours away from Tarangire National Park. The Mto Wa Mbu Village near Manyara is very famous for its 126+ tribes who live there. This land here is arable and very suitable for farming and is one reason all of the tribes are located here.Before lunch we can do a bike ride or take a short walk around the banana and mango farms. Lunch can either be eaten here, where we can take advantage of the local produce, or back at the lodge. After lunch we’ll head to the base of the Rift Valley. The lodge is perched on a small here and offers spectacular views overlooking the fruit farms and Lake Miwaleni – one of the deepest lakes in northern Tanzania. We’ll leave the afternoon open for you to unwind, relax and perhaps do some local walks or take a nice swim.

Day 5

Lake Manyara National Park- Lake Eyasi

There will be an early start to the day so we can head into Manyara National Park when the game viewing is at its best. We’ll drive in the open plains near Manyara Lake for game viewing and then to the hippo pool where we can stretch our legs while viewing and listening active hippos and birds in the morning. We’ll continue with drive exploring underground water forest and big game animals including buffalo, elephants, and giraffes. If we’re lucky, we might even spot the elusive tree-climbing lion. After lunch, we will head to Lake Eyasi. The road to Eyasi goes up the rift escarpment and into farmland. We’ll arrive at Lake Eyasi just in time for a spectacular sunset.

Day 6

Hadzabe- Ngorongoro Crater

We’ll start our day with an early morning walk with Bushmen. The landscape here is very different with dry, small hills. We’ll be back at the camp around 9:30 am for breakfast. After breakfast, we’ll head out towards Ngorongoro Crater. The drive takes us through very rocky, dry land. As we approach the Ngorongoro Highlands, the environment does a complete change. It is very lush and green. We’ll arrive at our lodge in time for an afternoon lunch and a few hours of relaxation. At sunset, we’ll head to the Crater rim where we can enjoy sundowners and watch the sun slowly disappear while sipping some beer, wine, coffee or other beverage of your choice.

Day 7

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Today will be a very early start so we can reach the Crater floor before the crowds. We’ll spend the day in the Crater and will also visit another crater – Olmoti or Empakaai – which most people do not visit. This will be a special visit and will be an excellent opportunity for photos.

Day 8

Ngorongoro Conservation Area - Central Serengeti

After breakfast, we’ll head to central Serengeti. The drive takes about three to four hours and goes through some very scenic areas. We’ll pass through the short grass plains where many animals can be found. It’s also a favorite spot for lions to lay and wait for sunset. We’ll spend the afternoon doing game drives in the Serengeti.

Day 9

Serengeti National Park

Today is an intensive Serengeti day. This area is an excellent region to visit year round, and we’ll head along the Seronera River where leopards and lions can be found. During the day hordes of elephants and buffalo can be found drinking from the permanent water holes here. If the wildebeest migration is in the area, we’ll also follow that for a while. In the afternoon, we’ll drive to the Moru Kopjes and get out for some photos.

Day 10

We’ll do a very early morning drive and then drive to the airstrip for your 11 am flight back to Arusha.

A1: Practically all our safaris are customized to individual groups according to bookings making them individual group safaris however there are instances when one wishes to join a group; in those cases we can make such an arrangement for our client depending on seat availability and date of travel. For those joining groups we would normally suggest the 3 Days Masai Mara Safari, 4 days Maasai Mara and Lake Nakuru Tour, 2 Days and 3 Days Tsavo Tour and overnight trips to Mount Kenya as these are popular trips that run every other day.

A3: Safaris can be undertaken in East Africa throughout the year with the best seasons being during the warmer seasons when the sun is at the equator mainly between December to February and July to September. The other months are cooler with tropical storms sometimes ruining the game viewing, mountain climbing or beach holidays. The prices at these low hotel occupancy seasons however results in bargains for the traveler as we are able to offer rates that are lower to compensate for the reduced hotel prices.

A4: January, February, August and September (Peak Mountain Climbing Season)
The three months are good for mountain hiking, the period is just after the short rain season, the skies are clear and the views from the mountains are fantastic.

March to July (Low Season for Mountain Climbing)
This is the long rainy season, you can still hike but remember to be dressed for the weather and please be concerned about your safety as the paths are slippery during this period. There is not much to see except the challenge that is posed by the wet climb. Tropical rain comes in bursts and lasts a few hours, mostly in the mornings and afternoons. The rains freshen up the nature and often enhance the trekking experience. Note that hiking is not closed durring the wet season and that there are fewer people climbing these three East African Mountains; namely Mt Kenya, Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Rwenzori.

November and December (Shoulder Mountain Climbing Season)
This is the short rainy season in East Africa but with the climate change that is being experienced you just might be lucky to find the mountains dry. The rains during this period are experienced at short intervals with one or two days going without rain.

A5: During the long rains and short rains their are fewer visitors and so the prices come tumbling down. This is the best time to travel for the the bargainer. Hotel prices are down and tour operators offer competitive prices. This period is between March and June covering the long rains period and between October and November during the short rains. The downside on Wildlife Safaris is that it is harder to spot the animals because of the long grass and the continual rains plus it is easier to get stuck while on game drives. The up-side is that there are fewer crowds and so you have the wilderness all to yourself.

Kenya enjoys a mild tropical climate. The average annual temperature for the capital city, Nairobi (altitude 4,980 feet) is 77ºF maximum and 56ºF minimum. The coastal town of Mombasa (altitude 50 feet) is 86ºF maximum and 73ºF minimum. There is plenty of sunshine all the year round and summer clothes are worn throughout the year. However, it is usually cool at night and early in the morning. The long rains occur from April to June and short rains from October to December. The rainfall is sometimes heavy and when it does come it often falls in the afternoons and evenings. The hottest period is from February to March and coolest in July to August.

A7: Yes, visitors require a visa to enter Kenya. For details, please consult the Kenyan Embassy or Consulate nearest to you or alternatively apply for a visa online by logging onto: http://www.evisa.go.ke/evisa.html

A8: A health certificate is not a requirement for travel to Kenya unless traveling from a Yellow Fever zone. It is highly recommended that travelers to Kenya take precautions against Malaria starting a few weeks before travel and continuing with your prophylaxis a few weeks after travel to be on the safe side ( please remember that prevention is better than cure ). Please consult your doctor prior to departure.

A9: East Africa is no different from any other place in the world. However the usual precaution should be observed. Avoid displaying expensive possessions; walking through unlit urban areas at night, and follow the guide's instructions in the bush. It is also recommended that you leave valuables and airline tickets in the hotel's safe.

A10: The official currency is the Kenya Shilling. Visitors to Kenya can exchange foreign currency at banks or authorized hotels and Foreign Exchange Bureaux. Most international currencies are easy to exchange in Kenya. Travelers cheques are widely accepted, and many hotels and restaurants accept credit cards. Most Banks in Kenya are equipped to advance cash on major international credit cards. There are no restrictions on the amount of foreign currency that can be brought into Kenya. Anyone wishing to take more than Kenya Shillings 500,000 out of the country will require written authorization from the Central Bank.

Tanzania and Uganda also accept foreign currency and credit cards but to a lesser extent. Please convert most of your currency in the major urban areas into the local shillings (the exchange rates are better in the cities) as doing so in the rural areas offer veritable challenges and this might create hurdles for the traveler.

English is the “language of communication” in East Africa. It is widely spoken in hotels, restaurants and visitor establishments. Swahili is East Africa’s national language. A little Swahili goes a long way in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, especially in the rural areas. It is worth learning a little, and most locals are thrilled to hear visitors attempt to use any Swahili at all. For example, “Jambo” means hello and is often the first word learnt by visitors to Kenya.
