Day 2
Maramboi Tented Camp None
Your journey begins as your naturalist guide transports you to Tarangire National Park, dotted with majestic baobabs and an unusually large elephant population – up to six thousand of the familial pachyderms. After a warm welcome and relaxed lunch at your tented camp, grab your cameras for an afternoon game drive to view the multitude of wildlife along the Tarangire River. Your ranger is expert at spotting those reclining big cats lazing in the grasses. Gather with your safari companions to toast the start of your safari as you look out at the sun sinking over the splendid vistas. Then, tuck in for a hearty dinner beneath the stars.Meals: BLD
Day 3
Maramboi Tented Camp None
Spend the day with a full menu of gameviewing as you explore Tarangire’s riverine thickets, grassy acacia woodlands and stands of ancient baobabs. Depending on the season, you’ll see large numbers of wildebeest and zebra as well as giraffe, buffalo, Thompson's gazelle, greater and lesser kudu, eland, leopard and cheetah. The birding is outstanding - watch for huge flocks of flamingos and other wading birds as the Manyara and Tarangire Pans fill with water during the wet season. This afternoon, depending on the site of your tented camp, go birdwatching at Lake Manyara, take a guided bush walk or experience a cultural visit to the semi-nomadic Datoga and Maasai nearby.Meals: BLD
Day 4
Lake Eyasi
Kisima Ngeda Tented Camp None
After an early morning walk, set out for Karatu near the Nogorongoro Conservation area. After crossing the Great Rift Valley near Lake Manyara, immerse yourself in the daily ritual of African life as you mingle with villagers at the local markets and visit a school. Late this afternoon, you’ll arrive at your tented camp on the shore of Lake Eyasi, an immense seasonal soda lake. Explore the grounds spread among a beautiful natural palm and acacia forest, enjoy the lake views with colossal rock formations as a backdrop, and birdwatch at the natural spring before dinner.Meals: BLD
Day 5
Lake Eyasi
Kisima Ngeda Tented Camp None
Be prepared for an extraordinary cross-cultural experience today when you meet the local nomadic tribes and learn about their traditional lifestyles. Join a local guide and interpreter to walk with the local Bushmen (Wahadzabe) as they hunt using bows and arrows and gather tubers and roots in this dry and rugged landscape. This afternoon, you’ll meet the pastoral Datoga people, who have retained their unique cultural practices - the women still dress in goat skins and adorn themselves with stacks of brass bracelets, clicking rhythmically as they dance.Meals: BLD
Day 6
Ngorongoro, Tanzania
Ngorongoro Farm House None
Your journey continues to your lodging near the Ngorongoro Conservation area. Here you’ll spend the next two days exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site, and marvel at the prolific wildlife roaming the world’s largest caldera.

Get ready for a superlative safari day as you descend to the 100-square-mile floor of the lush Ngorongoro Crater for a picnic and the chance to observe wildlife galore. The black-maned lion, wildebeest, zebra, elephant, hippo, jackal and hyena all frequent the crater while flocks of flamingoes and multiple species of birds dot the soda lake. Depending on the season, you’ll have a choice of half-day hikes into the Empakai Crater, Olmoti Crater or the surrounding highlands. Later, visit a Maasai village where herdsmen graze their cattle around the crater rim.Meals: BLD
Day 8
Serengeti, Tanzania
Serengeti Kati Kati Tented Camp None
As your adventure heads out for the Serengeti plains, visit the “cradle of mankind,” the 31-mile-long Olduvai Gorge. Here, the famed Leakey family archaeologists have discovered ancient remains of several species of man’s earliest ancestors: Australopithecus, Homo Habilis and Homo Erectus. Soon, you’ll be on your way to Serengeti National park, often called the most impressive wildlife sanctuary in the world, and your mobile tented camp. Depending on the season, the camp is moved to the wilderness area most conducive to observing the wildlife. Tonight, soak up the sounds of the bush from your verandah and sink into slumber in your comfortably-furnished and spacious tent, complete with ensuite bathroom and bush shower.Meals: BLD
Day 9
Serengeti, Tanzania
Serengeti Kati Kati Tented Camp None
Soak up the early morning splendor of an African sunrise as you meet your expert ranger for a game drive to observe the wildlife at their most active. Perhaps you’ll catch up with the lioness returning from her hunt or a pair of grunting wart hogs darting through the grass. Observe placid elephants encircling their young while countless wildebeest graze alongside zebras and antelope. Among the massive granite kopjes dotting the grass, you may spot a camouflaged leopard and her cubs playing in the shadows and, more likely tiny dik diks bounding into the shade. After lunch and a siesta, gather your camera gear for an afternoon game drive, returning in time for a hot shower before dinner. Unwind beneath the stars and be mesmerized by the game grazing silently nearby.Meals: BLD

Day 11
Serengeti, Tanzania
Serengeti Kati Kati Tented Camp None
Awaken with the animals in the dawn’s early light. After a cup of hot coffee or tea, meet your guide and be on your way to filling out your gallery of photos. Zoom in on the pride of lions sharing the night’s hunt. Wait patiently to catch the eye of the elegant giraffes snacking from the trees. Feel small as you zoom out on the endless landscape dotted with wildlife oblivious to your presence. After your late afternoon game drive, unwind and recharge.

African Safari - September 2013

By: Nade & Fran

Reviewed on: 20 Sep 2013

I could have have even imagined the experience that awaited us. The first night on a game drive we experienced watching lions eating a kill, so close you could smell the animals. All other animal siteings were equally as exciting. The lodging were excellent, service was first class and the people were wonderful. Cannot wait to go again. Post Haste Travel & African Travel did a fantastic job.!!!

Once in a lifetime

Our African Travel experience was fantastic. We didn't know what to expect, but having said that, our African experience was far and away more than we could have dreamed. The game drives and safari hotels were all great. WE couldn't have planned this trip alone, so the African Travel Inc. portion was vital to our having a great time, which we certainly did.

Everyone we dealt with at Africa Travel were great. They arranged the best guides and made sure our travel through every airport and border was smooth and without issues. Anytime we had a question, they quickly responded through their contact people in every location. Our travel advisor selected Africa Travel for us, but we cannot say enough good things about our accommodations and all of the logistical arrangements.

This was the first time that we have used Africa Adventure Company. Their recommendations for trip itinerary and accommodations were spot-on. The private guides were exceptional - extremely knowledgeable, courteous, accommodating, and professional. They were great ambassadors for their respective countries, and we saw many animals and rare animal behaviors because of their expertise, leadership, and guidance.

African Answers .was very easy to work with and ALWAYS available for questions. My contact at Africa Answers was Rowan and he did a great job; I was taken care of from the minute I stepped off the plane until I left the country. A person was assigned to me in both countries I visited. People who listened, were on time or early for pickups and very knowledgable about every portion of the area I was vacationing in. My last day in country I was not feeling well, so on the fly I asked to drop something that had been planned for me to do and instead just find a place to rest. The guys that Africa Answers was working with took care of everything. Book with these guys.

South Africa Honeymoon

African Travel was great! Other than a small hiccup with a hotel in Capetown (which they remedied), the trip was awesome. The drivers and tour guides that they hire were all super friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable. The businesses they chose for Shark Diving, Cape of Good Hope, and the Thorny Bush Reserve were excellent places. My wife and I would definitely recommend African Travel to friends and family! Cheers!

Our experience with African Travel was wonderful. They sent us really cool carry on bags, as well as itineraries and helpful travel advice/tips well before our journey (which definitely came in handy on the trip). Every single driver African Travel arranged was helpful, friendly, and punctual. The cars were super clean and the drivers were super professional. We even had an emergency number to contact in case anything went wrong. African Travel was excellent and really ensured our honeymoon went off without a hitch.
