DAY 02: KILIMANJARO / MANYARA RANCH CONSERVANCY

DAY 02: KILIMANJARO / MANYARA RANCH CONSERVANCY

Today you transferred from Arusha to Manyara Ranch Conservancy.This is called the future of safaris in Tanzania, the Manyara Ranch, a 35,000 acre wildlife conservancy situated in the corridor between Tarangire and Manyara National Park.

You visit Lake Manyara which is at the foot of an escarpment of the Great Rift Valley. This small park supports a surprising array of animals, including the largest concentration of elephants in East Africa. You may spot one of the park’s famed tree-climbing lions that seek shade high in the acacia branches.

Originally established as a cattle ranch during Tanzania's colonial period, Manyara Ranch remains an operating ranch with a relatively small herd of beef cattle and black-headed sheep. During 2000, the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) obtained management and conservation rights to the ranch to protect these wildlife corridors. In so doing, they established a working relationship with the Maasai, developing their community conservation projects and rehabilitating the ranch itself. The ranch is held in Trust by the Tanzania Land Conservation Trust (TLCT) for the benefit of the local communities and Tanzania

DAY 05: MANYARA RANCH CONSERVANCY / NGORONGORO CRATER

Today you will be transferred from Manyara Ranch to the Ngorongoro Crater where you will check into your lodge on the rim of the crater.

Indulge your sense of personal discovery as you near Ngorongoro Crater. In 1892, a German explorer was the first European to record seeing the crater. You will approach it in much the same way he did - via Lake Manyara. Certainly one of the world’s most remarkable natural wonders, the crater’s steep unbroken rim drops some 2,000 feet to the basin that encompasses 102 square miles. This may have been one of the world’s tallest mountains until about two million years ago, when a volcano exploded, collapsing it into this massive crater. Today, Maasai pastoralists and their grazing cattle and goats share this stage with 30,000 animals – lions, elephants, rhinos, wildebeest, flocks of flamingos and so much more. Your one-of-a-kind safari lodge sits on the rim of the crater, and its design was inspired by traditional Maasai homesteads. Interiors hint at the days of early settlers. Beneath grass roofs, exquisite beaded chandeliers, antiques, silk curtains and leather chairs blend with African art.

DAY 06: NGORONGORO CRATER

DAY 06: NGORONGORO CRATER

Today spend the day game driving at the Ngorongoro Crater.

The Ngorongoro Crater is often called ‘Africa’s Eden’ and the ‘8th Natural Wonder of the World,’ a visit to the crater is a main drawcard for coming to Tanzania and a definite world-class attraction. Within the crater rim, large herds of zebra and wildebeest graze nearby while sleeping lions laze in the sun. At dawn, the endangered black rhino returns to the thick cover of the crater forests after grazing on dew-laden grass in the morning mist. Just outside the crater’s ridge, tall Masaai herd their cattle and goats over green pastures through the highland slopes, living alongside the wildlife as they have for centuries.

Serengeti Pioneer Camp continues this tradition. Paying homage to the mobile camps of the 1930’s, a time when an African safari was truly a journey into the unknown, Serengeti Pioneer Camp’s   ‘zero footprint’ and close proximity to nature combines to make an unmistakably distinctive and truly individual offering. Comprising of ten-tented accommodations, all of which have en-suite facilities including a flushing toilet, vanity basin, and showers, the tent interiors are designed to evoke the very best of an era long-gone but certainly not forgotten. A dining tent hosts the Camp’s guests for both breakfast and dinner, whilst luncheons are taken either in the Camp or in the bush during what will no doubt be yet another enthralling day in the Serengeti. Serengeti Pioneer Camp captures the original essence of the mobile African safari, engendering nostalgic wonderment whilst unlocking the adventurous spirit within all of us. The drama and beauty of the Serengeti National Park is indeed awe inspiring.
