TOUR MAP

TOUR ITINERARY

You will be picked up at the Kilimanjaro International Airport by Toto Africa Adventures, team and transferred to your hotel in Arusha or Moshi town; you will meet your guide who will brief you on your upcoming safari. All the basic information about your safari will be given to you by safari guide.

Meal:  Dinner Only

You will be picked up at your hotel in Moshi/Arusha at 0700hrs and transferred to the Tarangire National Park to start off your game viewing experience in this magnificent park which is famous for its large collection of baobab trees, spectacular large mammal population and variety of bird species, not to mention one of the largest concentration of elephants in the country.After your tour around the park, you will be transferred to your lodge where you will be spending the night.

After breakfast we head towards the Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species. We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti national park.

After your tour around the park, you will be transferred to your lodge where you will be spending the night.

Following breakfast, you will spend the whole day on a game drive in the Serengeti National Park and have lunch at a picnic spot en-route. Depending upon the time of year, you might even have the chance to witness the great migration with hundred thousands of wildebeests, zebras and Thompson gazelles. During the small rainy season in October and November, you will typically see these herds moving from the Kenyan Masai Mara through the northwest of the Serengeti to the plains in the south. After the great rainy season in April, May and June, the herds slowly travel back through the western and north-western part of the Serengeti. With fluctuations in rainfall, this timetable can of course change, resulting in the animals migrating during different times and routes.

 

Your guide will try his outmost to find the animals and will make sure that you can see them from the best spot in the national park. Naturally, the migration also attracts predators and with luck you might see a kill in action. You will spend your night at the same Camps.

Dawn is a good time to watch wildlife and so you will be up early to join an early morning game drive. You will return to the camp for breakfast before heading out for another game drive in the park. Here in the Seronera region you will often see wildebeests and zebras in close proximity of lions and other predators such as leopards and cheetahs. After a picnic lunch you will continue your journey towards the Ngorongoro conservation for overnight.

After an early breakfast you will drive down the steep and narrow road that takes you into the crater. The slopes are forested but soon the landscape changes to savannah. Here the wildlife is just breath-taking and with a little luck you can observe the Big Five – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – in just a few hours. You should also see warthogs, wildebeests, zebras, hippos and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After a morning dedicated to game viewing and a picnic lunch, you will leave the crater in the early afternoon to drive back to Moshi, where you will arrive in the early evening.

Rest in the hotel and transfer to the airport.

Hotels check out is 11:00am. In case you need a late check-out because of an evening flight, you have the option to extend your hotel stay till 6:00 PM for an extra fee

INCLUDES

EXCLUDES

BEST TIME TO VISIT TANZANIA

The Best Time to Go Tanzania for Safari are during the Dry season from late June to October. The best chance of seeing the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti is during June and July and the time to see the wildebeest calving is late January to February. The southern and western circuit parks are best visited during the dry-season (June to October), unlike the more popular northern circuit parks that can be visited year-round. Tarangire is the only exception, since its wildlife viewing is considerably better in the dry-season as well.

TOUR FAQ'S

The following are the questions that we tend to get asked the most by our clients before deciding to book for a Tanzania Safari. If you have further questions after reading this, please do not hesitate contact us, our Tanzania Safari Specialists are ready to work with you to create the best Safari of your lifetime.

The tours are scheduled to depart on Daily basis. However, circumstances like clients’ arrival time, activities to be done and clients preference could affect the program. Our company is flexible for such arrangements and adjustments. Normally the program starts around 8:00 AM.

The tour depends with the itinerary. We end all our safaris at the airport or at the Hotels either in Arusha or Moshi town where our clients may have wished for their drop-off. However, our travel specialists will need to know your specific drop-off point prior to the safari to get aligned with the program

Vehicles used are generally open roof 4WD Toyota Land Cruiser or Land Rovers, as they are most suitable to the terrain. For larger groups we use 4WD buses as it is more convenient for clients to be all together in one vehicle only, and it is also more economic and better for the environment. Drivers have been trained in customer relations, tourism-related topics, environmental issues and vehicle maintenance. They are very familiar with the routes we take.

Yes of course, We arrange airport transfers for our clients. Normally, the drafted itineraries have included the transfers before and after safari. We however advise you to give prior information to our travel specialists before boarding your flight to Tanzania.

Yes of course, We arrange for accommodation when  you book safari with us . Normally, the drafted itineraries have included the accommodations before safari and excluded after safari because not all clients will wish to stay after the safari so after safari our guide will escort you direct to the airport for your flight back home or you will arrange accommodations at your own cost

The most amazing 5-days safari in Tanzania We booked a 5-day safari tour with Toto and it has been the experience of a lifetime, one of the best travels we ever did. Japheth (the Director) helped us building a customized trip with game drives in the major parks and staying at very nice lodges. He was always very helpful, responsive and willing to answer any question. Our tour guide, Livingstone, has been absolutely fantastic. He was able to spot animals from afar and he made sure we saw all animals from as near as possibile for us to take great pictures. He was also very knowledgeable and shared lots of interesting stories about animals, the parks and Tanzania itself. Totally recommended especially if you want to make a custom-made tour and to live an unforgettable experience!

A very kind man I had arranged a transfer and a trip to the hot springs on the way. Unfortunately I started to feel really unwell and instead of the swimming I had to go into hospital. Japheth stayed at the hospital and helped translate for me, then we drove around searching for more health help and he was so kind and supportive while I really wasn’t well. He even missed eating lunch to get me to the appointment on time. A very kind man indeed. 😊 Highly recommended.

Хорошо организованная работа Брали у этих ребят экскурсию на горячие водопады Чемка. Вовремя организованный трансфер, интересные беседы в дороге о жизни местного народа, о флоре и фауне Танзании. На источниках никто никого не торопил, вдоволь накупались, попрыгали с тарзанки. На обед представители туристического агенства организовали барбекю. А на обратном пути к Моши, они остановились показать как растет сахарный тростник. Оказалось, что в Танзании это единственная плантация с тростником и фабрика по производству сахара на всю Африку. Ребят смело рекомендуем!

It is True that Toto Africa is A Signature of Excellence This was more than me and my friend expected, Actually Toto Africa Adventures made our childhood dream become reality, we had no any experience on African Safaris, so we had to search on different website, and lucky we found this Local Company and the reply was so fast, Mr. Japheth the Company Director was Available and answer all Questions we asked, He was friendly and polite to advise us in many ways. On the Day we arrived in JRO (Kilimanjaro International Airport) Toto and the whole team took care of us, actually the driver was very kind and fun, which for us was very nice and felt like we are home , the next day our Guide was there for short briefing with printed itinerary which makes us more comfortable. We booked a Camping and Lodge Safari for our first day was camping inside the Tarangire National Park, the food from the chef was very fantastic and the camping facility was amazing, what I love from This Company is the ability to give us exactly what we were thinking. Let me give their Credit for the Quality service they provide since the day we arrive to the day we depart, we recommend this Company for anyone wants to try Safaris for affordable rates. Again thank you very much for the love and care.

Toto Africa Adventures is the Best We did this tour in June after Tanzania announce to open tourism Again, At first me and My wife we were very afraid if it was true that Tanzania is Safe again, so we decided to risk because we agreed that not to change our schedule , so we contact many tour operators(Big Companies), what we knew that many operators will give us affordable budgets due to the pandemic and economy issues but i was wrong so we decided to give a try to find other local operators and Lucky us we Found Toto Africa Adventures, the manager Mr. Japheth was very charming actually he could not believe to get travelers in this moment , so he picked us from the Airport and we went direct to our Hotel, gave us a time to rest after a long Journey . In the Morning after breakfast our tour guide and Driver Mr Ben was there giving a short brief about our 6 Days Trip and we had a chance to visit Tarangire, Serengeti , Ngorongoro, we went to see the maasai also which was very fun seeing the maasai dance etc. Actually the trip was nothing but Unforgettable because the Lodge Selection, Food was Fantastic and the staff were very clean and amazing. i would Travel with Toto and we recommend this Company 100% .

Fantastic adventure with a knowledgeable operator Our experience with Toto Africa Adventures was brilliant. The pre-tour communications with Japheth were proactive and informative to enable us to maximise our time in the Ngorongoro Crater and see the best parts of it. On the trip, Ibrahim and Japheth picked us up on time and did a fantastic job of showing us around the Crater and finding the animals, along with providing a great lunch. We were very happy with the trip and would travel with Toto Africa again.

3 Day Luxury Safari Our experience with Toto African Adventures was absolutely amazing. We were heaidng to Tanzania on our Honeymoon and had our previous plans for a safari fall through. I sent an email to them on a whim (knowing that email responses in Africa can be slow to say the least-tip:it's always better to call establishments there to get a response as they are not always on top of emails) before boarding our flight in Amsterdam, stating our desired lengh and type of trip and our budget. By the time we had landed in kilimanjaro 9 hrs later, they had responded with a detailed email with a price quote (that was under budget) and outlining exactly what our package would entail. With less than 2 days notice Japheth, the company director had put together a 3 day private luxury safari for us. He even went a step further and discreetly let the staff at the lodge we were staying at know we were on our honeymoon and they went out of their way to set up private dinners for us under the stars. The price point was very good for all that we got. The accomodations were top notch and the Safari Jeep was modern and exceptionaly clean. Our driver and guide, Ben, who is a seasoned safari guide with over 20 years of experience was so knowledgable and is probably the reason we saw so many animals in so little time. While no safari company can guarantee how many or which animals you see, we were fortunate to have seen a vast variety including 4 or the Big 5, such as;Elephants,Zebras,Lions,Giraffes,Water Buffallos, Wildabeasts, Hippos, Ostriches,Gazelles, Antilopes, Wild Boards, Monkeys and Baboons and even Rhinos. Our package included Game drives at Tanrangire National Park, NGorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara. It would be hard to pick my favorite as all 3 had their advanteges but the crater was truly something right out of the Lion King. Tanrangire is renowed for Elephants which explains why we saw so many although we saw tons at Lake Manyara as well. Toto African Adventures picked us up at our hotel in Moshi and dropped us off at Kilimanjaro Airport on our last day, saving us almost $100 US in shuttles or taxis and providing us peace of mind that we were in good honest hands. They offer stops at souvenir shops along the way so we were able to pick up a few awesome momentos from our time in Tanzania. I honestly can't say enough great things about Japheth and his team. He was always quick to respond and was great about using Whatsapp to communicate as many of us foreigners are limited to wifi to communicate. 5 Star service from him and his whole team. We got in late Saturday night and our Safari wasn't set until Monday morning so Japheth offered to set up a day trip on sunday for us. We happily accepted and were treated to a delightful afternoon on a coffee bean farm, learning how they produce delicious artisanal coffee.The farmers family prepared an amazing traditional feast and we followed it up with a spectacular hike up to Mataruni Waterfall. Epic fun and it truly it made our trip feel so much more authentic. We would highly recomment Toto African Adventures to anyone looking at coming to visit Kilimanjaro, Arusha or Moshi areas.
