Overnight at Bushman Campsite close to the Lake

On this day we take you for an early morning hunting with (Hadzabe) the bushmen, the hunting is with bows & arrows & it will include tuition on survival skills. Bushmen at Lake Eyasi are divided into three clans of Hadzabe, Tindiga & the Datoga living in hunting & gathering of eggs, wild fruits & root tubers pretty much the same as humankind who lived in the Stone Age. After the hunting you will return back to your Campsite for full breakfast before starting your way to the vast Serengeti plains via Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Your 5 Days Tanzania camping safari continues as you drive to Serengeti National park, the driving is along beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu up to Ngorongoro gate. After check in you will drive up & around the Crater rim. You will have a brief stop at the view point of the Crater for some nice photos. On the way you will visit one of the Maasai village for some more cultural encounter, the Maasai worrier will invite you & take you in and around their houses where you can meet kids & other family members, you may ask questions & have some pictures with them. Later they will sing & dance their favorite songs which involves high jumping. If you wish you can join the dancing.

Afterward, drive down into the heart of the “wild Africa” Serengeti National park with its endless rolling plains. Break for picnic lunch at Naabi Hills Gate or at the Copjes (Rocky outcropping) when heading to the Central Serengeti area called Seronera. This is one of the richest wildlife habitat in the park endowed with Seronera River the valuable water supply in this area hence attracts a vast number of wildlife around the Serengeti. Afternoon game drive in searching of the big cats & the Great Serengeti Wildebeest Migration (depending on traveling dates). Late afternoon before or during sunset drive to your campsite for dinner & overnight.

All meals included – Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Seronera Public Campsite at Central Serengeti

On this day of your 5 days Tanzania camping safari in the vast Serengeti plains we take you for an early morning game drive with packed breakfast box and lunch box. Early morning game drive gives you a chance to spot some cat families on the road as they try to avoid morning mist. You may also see other nocturnal predators coming back from their long night of hunting or a group of lioness organizing morning ambush or eating along the road. Later break for breakfast somewhere in the bush & after if the Great Wildebeest Migration will be packed in Serengeti which you will have already know, you will start early & go straight to where they are & spend much time with them in anticipation of experiencing some animal actions like fighting, hunting, eating even killing.

You may expect to spot predators like lion, leopard, hyena, cheetah, jackals & others. Herds of buffalo, elephants, giraffe warthog, zebra & many antelopes can also be seen wondering around the Serengeti plains. Late afternoon during or before sunset drive back to the campsite for dinner & overnight.

All meals included – Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Seronera Public Campsite at Central Serengeti

This is your last day in Serengeti, if you wish you can do another early morning game drive & spend much time in Serengeti doing game drives then you will have early hot lunch before start your way to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Reaching Ngorongoro for wonderful sunset at the crater rim then dinner & overnight.

All meals included – Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Ngorongoro Simba Public Campsite at the Crater rim

On this last day of your 5 Days Tanzania camping safari you will have an early breakfast and descent into Ngorongoro Crater floor for a wonderful game drive (picnic lunch will be served in the Crater floor). As very few animals migrate in and out of the Crater with its 600 meters high walls you may expect to spot herds of African elephant, zebra, buffalo, warthog, hippos & the rare black rhinos in their natural habitat

Another big draw card in this big caldera is the denser population of predators which include lion, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs & the ever- illusive leopard which sometimes needs binoculars eyes to spot.

You will visit Lake Magadi large but shallow salt Lake on the southwest corner of the crater floor frequently visited by flocks of flamingos & other aquatic birds. Some hippos and other animals can also be seen around the Lake.

Later afternoon drive out & back to Arusha for drop off at Kilimanjaro international airport or for overnight in Arusha.

(Accommodation on this day can be included upon request at extra cost).

Superb 5 Days Tanzania camping safari to the most highlighted Northern Tanzania parks can be combined with Kilimanjaro trekking or Zanzibar beach vacation upon request, please let us know your preferences. Karibu Sana!

SAFARI ACCOMMODATION

Budget camping fits in the tented camps category. The experience is however completely different, making it deserve to be regarded separately. You get to stay in public campsites, inside bivouac tents, sleeping on mattresses laid on the tent floor, or in sleeping bags. Basic washroom facilities are available in the public campsites, and are shared by everyone at the campsite. Campsites are the most basic of accommodations in terms of facilities and amenities. However, out here you will most likely have the most authentic experience and get as close to nature as nowhere else. Learn More About Tanzania Safari Accommodation Differences

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

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.

We just had a 6 Days Tanzania Safari in Most Famous Destination in Tanzania through the Serengeti, NgoroNgoro crater ,Lake Manyara and Tarangire organized by Mr Japheth the Owner of Toto Africa Adventures and it was Very Perfect Our guide Ben picked us up at our Hotel with a very well-maintained and clean car it was clean every time . The chosen accommodation were perfect: When they sent us a quote of a budget we were expecting it to be local but i was suprised by the rooms, lodges , the food etc it is truly a memorable safari for us Mr Ben is a great driver (he drove very safely and comfortably which is a real plus on the roads of the Serengeti!) but also a very kind, patient and well-informed guide! He found his way out perfectly through the muddy roads of the parks, he explained a lot to us about the animals thanks to him we spotted so many animals: especially the leopard, very rare and fantastic! We recommend this Company although it is a new company but its was worth trying and they did not disappoint and i think when we come back, we will make sure to Contact Mr Japheth because he is a great Leader for the Company and he treats well...i remember he gave me a gift a t-shirt with Toto Africa Adventures Logo..Truly Thank you Very Much guys
