5 Star rated African Tour Operator
The Taste Of Africa safari
- Duration 8 Days
- Can be Tailor-made Yes
You might wonder why this package is called “the taste of Africa” the reason is it gives you a deep insight about African wildlife as you will visit Serengeti (the Africa’s leading national park) and Ngorongoro crater (the world’s eighth natural wonder) meanwhile it gives you chance to experience the life of one among last hunter & gathers tribes in the world (the Hadzabe), together with the famous maasai cultural experience. A safari like this is never to be found anywhere in Africa but Tanzania.
After your day is done, you'll travel to nearby Lake Eyasi to overnight in preparation for the next day's cultural adventures.
You'll join the hunters for a hunting demonstration as they employ tactics such as mimicking animal cries and movements to lure in their prey before taking it down with homemade poisons. You'lll also see how the women of the tribe gather fruits, vegetables, and herbs for breakfast in what is a once in a lifetime cutural experience.
After breakfast, you'll have the day to explore the Lake Eyasi region. You can enjoy a drive around the lake or even get out stretching your legs with a nature walk. While Lake Eyasi does not boast the more dangerous big game, it does offer you the chance to see a number of herbivores and a stunning array of birdlife in a beautiful environment.
You'll descend 600 meters into the world famous crater (often described as the 8th Wonder of the World) to explore the verdant lost world that exists at its base. You'll have the chance to spot the endangered black rhinoceros as well as other members of the Big Five - the lion, leopard, elephant, and buffalo. Marvel at great herds of wildebeest and zebras, spot lions and hyenas fighting over a fresh kill, and take in the beauty of thousands of flamingoes feeding in the crater's soda lakes.
A highlight of your day will undoubtedly be a picnic lunch by the famous hippo pool, where you can enjoy a delicious lunch just a few feet from where hippopotamus wallow in the cool waters.
After a full day of exploration, you'll return to your accommodations for dinner and a well earned rest.
Stopping at Olduvai Gorge offers you a window into human prehistory. It was on this site that volcanic ash perfectly preserved the footprints of ancient men and women who called the region home, and at the Olduvai Gorge Museum you can learn more about the human journey that took these humble hunter-gatherers out of Africa and on to populate the entire world.
Our next stop will be a traditional Masai boma, where you'll have the chance to meet local Masai people and visit their village. Step inside a traditional Masai home to see how they live, buy locally made crafts, witness traditional dancing, and wander around their village learning about how they live day to day. From here, we'll continue on to the Serengeti National Park for a picnic lunch and an afternoon game drive looking for the Big Five and other popular animals such as cheetahs, giraffes, and the many antelope species who call the plains home.
You'll overnight in the heart of the Serengeti.
After your morning game drive, you'll enjoy a late breakfast before heading out onto the Serengeti for a full day game drive. Depending on the time of year, you may be able to track the movements of the Great Wildebeest Migration. Our experienced and highly-qualified guide will know the best places to take you to see everything from powerful elephants to wallowing hippos and from diminutive serval cats to towering giraffes.
You'll then overnight in the Serengeti beneath a star-strewn sky.
