Discover Tanzania with a 8 day safari, where you will visit Arusha, Lake Manyara, the stunning Serengeti and Ngorongoro.
These are beautiful places with stunning nature, and you get to sleep in lodges in parks and have breakfasts with a view on the wildlife. The perfect experience also for passionate photographers, who will have tons of photo opportunities to bring back home.
This safari is perfect for wheelchair users, both manual and power scooters (but we need the measurements beforehand – for the transport): the hotel rooms and lodges are wheelchair adapted and the transport is on a van with ramps. Porters can be hired for the more difficult parts of the itinerary and the staff is trained by the tour organisers, local agency GoAfrica Safari. GoAfrica has a long time experience in tours and safaris for people with mobility issues.
Read below for all the adaptations that are available for travelers with various needs.
First of all, it is very important for people to know that a safari is very exciting and adventurous, but also tiring. One will have to be able to sit in a vehicle for 5-6 hours on some transfer days between the parks. If travelers get tired quickly, the agency will modify the program and extend the number of nights at each location, or eventually visit less areas.
This safari is indicated for the abilities listed below: however if the person needs help traveling, either s/he has a travel companion, a family member or assistant, or eventually there are local trusted carers that can join, at an additional cost.
For power scooter users, we will need to have the measurements of your scooter to make sure it fits in the vehicles used.
Diabetic travelers: the local agency can supply a coolerbox for medication and inform the camps/lodges accordingly, you can inform us beforehand and information on medical facilities for any emergency will be at hand.
Travelers with specific dietary requirements: appropriate menus can be set up, inform us beforehand.
Travelers with hearing impairments: SL guides are not available on the spot for the moment, but you can travel with your own guide/tour leader of course.
Travelers with visual impairments: the safari experience is a multisensory feast, so it can be a lot of fun for people with reduced or no sight. However, it must be said that in a safari it is not possible to actually touch the animals as they are generally at a safe distance.
Arrival at Kilimanjaro airport: our driverguide will pick you up and transfer to hotel at Arusha for overnight.
Your safari starts from Arusha. You will be picked up from your hotel or Kilimanjaro airport and drive to Lake Manyara. Lunch will be served at the camp ( or enjoy a picnic at the park ) followed by an afternoon game-drive at Lake Manyara National Park. You will then return for dinner & overnight at one of the camps/lodges at Lake Manyara.
After breakfast departure from Lake Manyara: you will drive to Serengeti National park. A packed lunch will be carried and game-drive enroute to the camp – afternoon game-drive – dinner & overnight at the Camp.
Where exactly at the Serengeti depends on your travel season/month. In Jan/Feb, the best area would be the southern part called Ndutu, during the Migration in June/July the best area would be the western Corridor or northern part. Central Serengeti is always a great place as starting point for your game-drives in different directions. Stay in a basic camp to get the real safari experience, or choose a bit more comfort in one of the luxury tented camps or lodges.
Spend two full days in the Serengeti with game-drives. This gives a good chance to cover a large area and see a lot of wildlife. The Serengeti is named after Siringet, a Masai word for endless plains.
The park is one of the world’s best know wildlife sanctuaries and symbolises the classic Africa safari. With more than 2 million wildebeest and a large number of Thomson gazelle and zebra, it has the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa. The area is so vast, even at the height of the wildebeest migration, when over one million animals are moving, the Serengeti never seems crowded. The park lies between the shores of Lake Victoria to the west, Lake Eyasi in the South and the Great Rift Valley to the East. Return to the camp for a hot lunch or spend the day on game-drive with a packed lunch in the park . Dinner & overnight Serengeti.
After breakfast continue with safari to the Olduvai Gorge with packed lunch. The site is also known as “the Cradle of Mankind” it is a steep side ravine in the Great Rift Valley that stretches through East Africa.
The Olduvai Gorge is one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world and has been instrumental in further understanding of early human evolution. Brief visit to the museum and the visitors centre before proceeding towards the Ngorongoro Crater rim. Dinner & overnight at the Ngorongoro Crater Rim. The lodge is built high on the crater rim with amazing views over and into the crate- a truly breath taking natural wonder!
After an early breakfast, descend into Ngorongoro crater for a game-drive with a packed lunch. The crater is the world’s largest unbroken volcanic caldera, 600 meters deep, about 20km across and 300sq kms in the area.
The steep sides of the crater provide a natural enclosure for a very wide variety of wildlife and therefore great for game-viewing. Afternoon proceed to Karatu and check in at the lodge in the middle of a coffee plantation for Dinner & Overnight. A small and exclusive lodge facing the Oldeani Volcano was built to offer clients an original experience reminiscent of the atmosphere of the old days.
After late breakfast, drive back to Arusha – depending on flight timings we could add a visit to the Shanga project at Arusha with tour and lunch. A project where local people with disabilities make amazing items, great to do some souvenir shopping !!! either drop of at the Kilimanjaro aiport or extension program.
