Travel Times and Distance: All travelling times are affected by road conditions, border crossings, detours and weather conditions, therefore on certain days travelling times may be longer than anticipated especially where there is a lot of distance to be covered. Please keep in mind that the time it takes to travel 100 km in your home country is not equivalent to the time it takes to travel 100 km on African roads, therefore we encourage you to sit back and enjoy the spectacular scenery Africa has to offer. Where possible additional stops will be made to ensure your travelling comfort at all times.
Meals: Breakfast and dinner will be prepared by the lodge where you are staying. They will also prepare lunch or a lunch pack depending on the itinerary for the day. Please advise us of any special dietary requirements in advance.
Travel Insurance: Please note that travel and cancellation insurance is mandatory for every guest travelling with African Travels. All insurance is solely the responsibility of our guests. Please ensure you arrange your own insurance with protection for the full duration of your journey to cover personal injury, damage and loss of personal items including but not limited to camera equipment and other electronic items, medical expenses, repatriation expenses and loss of luggage, etc. Please speak to us if you require assistance.
Arusha – Arusha
Start at time of pick-up from airport upon arrival on day 1
You will be collected from the airport and transferred to your Boutique hotel in the heart of Arusha. Depending on your arrival time, you will have an opportunity to explore the grounds, go for a dip in the swimming pool or partake in any of the offered additional activities available.
Your safari begins after breakfast this morning. Our first stop is Arusha town, for any last minute purchases before we head off on an exciting safari experience! We will be in Tarangire National Park for lunch and an afternoon game drive. Tarangire is well known for its huge elephant population and baobab trees. It forms the centre of the annual migratory cycle that includes up to 3000 elephant, 25,000 wildebeest and 30,000 zebra.
In the late afternoon we arrive in the town of Arusha – the gateway to the Kilimanjaro National Park.
We head towards Lake Manyara National Park for an early morning game drive. The spectacular national park is located at the north-western corner of Lake Manyara, a hallow soda lake, which lies at the foot of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment. Manyara NP is not only known for its large flocks of flamingos, but also for the elusive tree climbing lions.
After breakfast we drive up the Rift Valley escarpment towards the world famous Ngorongoro Crater. For many, this wildlife spectacle is the pinnacle of their safari experience. The Ngorongoro Crater boasts all of the ‘Big 5’, including a small population of endangered black rhino. After a picnic lunch, we head towards the Serengeti through the stunning Southern Plains. This is the area that the Serengeti is best known for – the endless, undulating grass savannah with rocky outcrops that serve as isolated wildlife refuges.
Today you will be spending a full day game driving around the Seronera area of the Serengeti. The Serengeti is divided into three main areas: Seronera is the most central and accessible region and this is where the Park HQ is based, as well as most of the larger lodges and communal campsites. This part of the Serengeti is characterised by open plains of grassland, packed with animals. The Seronera River is the lifeblood of the Serengeti and this area is renowned for great game viewing all year round. It is also particularly good for lion and cheetah sightings, as well as the most elusive of all big cats, the leopard.
Today we retrace our steps with a morning game drive through the Serengeti followed by Picnic Lunch, before we continue through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. En route we visit Olduvai Gorge.
After breakfast we explore the colourful town of Mto-wa-Mbu for some last minute pictures and curio shopping. Afterwards we head to Arusha where the tour will end. We hope to welcome you again on one of our African adventures!

My husband and I decided to do a safari for our honeymoon, after lots of research we chose Tanzania and Jenman safari’s. We had high hopes for our first safari and first visit to Africa and it didn’t disappoint. We can honestly say this was the best holiday we have ever been on and we are both well traveled. Our tour guides Jephter and Ibrahim were just brilliant, they both knew there stuff and were able to locate the animals each day. We saw lions and their cubs (13 cubs) leopards, elephants, cheetah with cub and so much more, we even got see lions on their honeymoon :). We cannot thank Jephter and Ibrahim enough they were so so great made the tour. We chose to go for the mid range accommodation option, all of which were lovely all staff so welcoming, great facilities even in the middle of the Serengetti. It was amazing to be lieing in bed listening to amazing wildlife right outside, zebras, hyenas and even a hippopotamus, we felt so safe with the massi walking around at night keeping look out. If anyone is considering booking Wildlife Breakway Tanzania with Jenman we both would highly recommend it and can’t wait to go back.
We have recently returned from our safari in Tanzania and I wanted to say how perfect everything was and how safe we felt. We had Elisha as our tour guide. He was amazing. Not only was he extremely knowledgable but he was interested in sharing his knowledge. He never failed so show interest in answering our questions. Nothing was too much for him even when we had had a very long day visiting Ngoro Ngoro Crater and then driving onto Serengetti. Elisha heard there was a sighting of a leopard up a tree. He turned the Toyota round and headed in the other direction just so we could see the leopard. We did see it and we also saw it come down the tree! So exciting. And this was how the whole safari was. One amazing thing after another, all beautifully organised – the lodges and camp welcoming, clean and interesting, and even the food was excellent. I was brought up in Kenya and have been on several safaris but this safari far excelled anything I had anticipated. I want to thank Jenman for putting together the itinerary and even with long days driving it was so inspiring with Elisha always there with his knowledge. Elisha is also an excellent driver. Always taking care and thinking of the passengers as we drove along the more than potholed roads.
Thanks so much.
We went on the Jenman Tanzania breakaway safari in Jan 2013. It was amazing! The weather was great, we saw the big 5 plus other animals too, and the landscape was stunning. Jenman exceeded our expectations in terms of their Safari guide. Charmy, our guide, was knowledgeable, experienced, and personable.
We had a blast.
Hi Johan, The Lavery party would like to thank you most sincerely for a wonderful trip. Alex made the trip for us His friendly approach and amazing knowledge of wildlife brought the trip to life for us. You have a gem there.
We would like to view the Mara crossing in November and would really appreciate having Alex with us again. By the way your new van created interest wherever we went .It was roomy and we had great space to view the animals
Kind Regards, Terry
I just thought you may like to hear from us to let you know how we are going. It would take me days of writing to tell you everything but suffice to say our expectations have been greatly exceeded to say the least. Africa is truly a beautiful and amazing place with exciting things to see around every corner. I can’t speak highly enough of our guides, Vincent in Uganda and George in Tanzania, who were very friendly, extremely knowledgeable, flexible and a lot of fun to be with. They bring the whole experience to a high level of enjoyment and we would have been lost without them. Also, the places we stayed were brilliant and the staff attentive and jovial. We enjoyed their company a great deal. They couldn’t do enough for us. The other thing I have been really impressed with is the fact that we have been able to get extremely close to the animals and birds and they are totally unfussed by our presence which translates into the most amazing photo and video opportunities. This is because, as our guides say, the animals “know the deal”. Obviously everyone is doing the right thing and respecting the animals space.
So now we have sadly farewelled Zambia and are in the A’Zambezi River Lodge (another amazing place on this beautiful river) with 7 warthogs grazing on the lawn below our balcony. Don’t see that very often in Australia! We have met our group ( only 5 guests and all from Australia including 2 from our own home town!) and our guide, Jonathon, who seems to have a real passion for his job and this country so we are looking forward to the next 21 days on our Southern Experience. We met Corne twice in Tanzania and what a lovely man he was so please give him our very best regards. Warmest regards to yourself as well and hopefully we’ll catch up with you when you come to Adelaide.
PS. I nearly forgot to thank you for your recommendation to have a sunset cruise on the Ra-Ikane. A beautiful boat with a very romantic atmosphere. We felt very spoilt indeed.
Warmest regards, Kay and Mauro
