Faru Safari


7 Day Road/Fly Safari

Highlights: Eighth Natural Wonder of the World, flora, fauna, scenery and more wildlife. Prices start at $2750.

The Faru Safari is short and absolutely sweet allowing you to visit the top two parks in Tanzania. If you are limited by time or would like to add this as a part to a larger itinerary then this safari is for you. This safari can also operate in reverse having you fly first to the Serengeti and driving back through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Adding an extra night in Arusha to acclimate to the time change is easily done. The same can be said about adding additional time in the Serengeti.
Returning to Arusha at noon permits travelers to easily extend to southern Tanzania or Zanzibar.

FARU SAFARI ITINERARY

Tours operate daily with two people minimum (based on availability)

Day 1 Arrival in Arusha

KARIBU TANZANIA. Welcome to Tanzania.
Arrive Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) in Arusha, Tanzania. Airport Meet and Greet and then transfer to Arusha Hotel for overnight.

Day 2 Arusha – Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area

After breakfast, drive south through the Great Rift Valley. Ascend up to the escarpment and into the farmlands before you reach the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. En-route shopping stop at the best souvenir shop in Tanzania. After lunch, an optional visit at a Maasai Village ($20) is available for you. Overnight at your Ngorongoro lodge or Farm House. (BLD)

Day 3 Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area

Game drive 2000 feet down in the Eighth Natural Wonder of the World – Ngorongoro Crater. Year round water keeps a large variety of animals teeming in the area. Picnic lunch will be at one of the hippo pools. Continue your game drive in one of the best places to see black rhinos in Tanzania. The crater elephants also have some of the largest tusks in all of Africa. Overnight at your Ngorongoro lodge or Farm House. (BLD)

Day 4 Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area – Serengeti NP

Continue on around the rim of the Crater and descend into the Serengeti. Optional visit to the Olduvai Gorge ($30) which sits between the two parks. The drive leading up to the park entrance at Naabi Hill gives you an idea where the park gets its name of Serengeti – Maasai for ‘endless plains’. After your picnic lunch you will continue with the game drive en-route to your lodge. Arrive in the late afternoon and overnight. (BLD)

Day 5 Serengeti NP

Optional sunrise balloon safari. Enjoy more exploration of this great park possibly visiting one of the many dazzling Kopjes (rocky outcrops) scattered throughout the area. Return in the late afternoon and overnight at your Serengeti lodge. (BLD)

Day 6 Serengeti NP

The Serengeti is full of awe-inspiring landscapes from the plains, to the acacia forests, to the hills in the central region and the Kopjes located throughout. Add that to the abundant wildlife and you will see why it is animal paradise. You will spend the entire day in it looking for game including the many prides of lions that live throughout the park. Overnight at your Serengeti lodge. (BLD)

Day 7 Serengeti NP – Arusha

Morning game drive en-route to the Seronera Airport in the central Serengeti for your flight to Arusha. Continue on to your Zanzibar extension or transfer to your Arusha hotel where there is a day room waiting for you. Transfer to JRO for your evening departure for the U.S. (BL)

OPTIONAL: Adding an additional day and night in the fabulous Serengeti National Park is highly recommended. With the Serengeti being the size of Vermont (5600 sq. mi.) there is plenty of park left to explore. The additional day also creates flexibility in how the game drives will play out during the other days in the Serengeti.
