Provided that the itinerary includes plenty of non-vehicle-based activities to complement the game-viewing, children will love everything about a Tanzania family safari. It is tremendously exciting and you will never see your children as quiet as when the guide tells them that they need to be silent so as to approach the pride of a lion. They will become quickly adept at identifying all the different species and particularly at catching glimpses of the magical big-five (lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo, elephant). The adult vision quickly seems second-rate compared to the eagle eyes of your children! This Tanzania Family Safari Package is set specially for a family to enjoy the best out of Tanzania.

Permanent Camps & Lodges
After breakfast, we will start our Tanzania Family Safari and head to Arusha, A full day of activities in Arusha National Park. This small park seldom appears on safari itineraries for Tanzania, which is a surprise as it is one of our favorites. At the center of the park is the beautiful Ngurdoto Crater, flanked by steep cliffs and home to an abundance of buffalo that roam the marshy ground found within.
Further, into the park, the Momella lakes are also scenic, with an abundant bird population as well as large populations of hippos and buffalo.
You will start the day with a short game drive, followed by a guided walking safari across the plains in the shadow of Mount Meru. Giraffes wander past just a few meters away and herds of buffalo graze on the grasses.
From here continue to the Momella Lakes where you take a gentle canoe ride across the peaceful waters of the lake, stopping to learn about the birds that you see along the way and perhaps catching a glimpse of a lumbering hippo.
This morning drive to Tarangire where you will spend the night in a delightful tented camp with views toward Lake Manyara.
The camp has possibly our favorite pool in Tanzania, on a deck overlooking the plains, with wildlife such as zebra, wildebeest, and giraffe coming almost right up to the edge.
Have a relaxing afternoon before heading out for a sunset walk across the plains in search of wildlife. Antelope, zebra, giraffe, and ostrich can all be found here and you can finish up by the campfire as the sun sets.
A full day of game drives in Tarangire National Park. The park is cut through by the Tarangire River which proves a magnet for all manner of wildlife during the long dry season when the surrounding area becomes completely parched.
During the wet season, the wildlife is more scattered but you are still almost guaranteed sightings of Tarangire’s extensive elephant population.
Large herds roam the riverbed whilst zebra, buffalo, gazelle, and wildebeest try to avoid the predatory advances of lion and leopard.
There is also a remarkable profusion of bird life as the Tarangire swamps are home to 550 bird varieties including many rare species.
After breakfast drive to the small village of Mto Wa Mbu, at the base of the Rift Valley Escarpment. Take a bike ride through the banana plantations, rice paddies, and small villages that surround the town. (Families with younger children can take a tuk-tuk ride instead).
You will also stop at the main produce market in Mto Wa Mbu and a local school. Creative children may enjoy a visit to an artists’ co-operative where they can try their hand at doing a traditional African painting on their own canvas.
Join a local family for a traditional Tanzanian lunch before driving on to Karatu for the night.
An exciting day today as you head to Lake Eyasi, home to a number of different tribal groups. Most popular for the children will be a visit to a Hadzabe (bushman) family.
Learn how to make fire by rubbing a stick vigorously into a hardwood block until wisps of smoke appear which are then used to light dried grass.
Practice firing a bow and arrow at a grass target, causing much hilarity with the local boys who will then demonstrate their (vastly superior) shooting skills!
You may even be invited to join the bushmen on a hunt in the bush in search of small wild animals – usually rabbits, squirrels, or birds.
You have a full day to visit the Ngorongoro Crater, an ancient volcanic crater that is home to an extraordinary concentration of wildlife including a very dense population of lions and spotted hyenas.
By now children will be very accomplished ‘wildlife spotters’ and you are almost guaranteed to see all of the ‘big five’ (lion, rhino, leopard, elephant, and buffalo).
The views are superb, from the first glimpse of the crater at ‘Heroes’ Point’, through the thick rain forest that covers its sides, down to the rich grassy plains that form its center.
Spend the night in a hotel close to the crater rim.
An exciting morning today as you climb an extinct volcano. Located in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, at 3,132m Mount Makarot soars above the surrounding landscape offering superb views not only of Ol Deani Volcano but also of the Olduvai Plains.
Accompanied by a park ranger you will follow a seldom-used route to the peak, passing at times through waist-high grass and almost other-worldly forest.
You may well see various antelope species en route and possibly buffalo.
Later continue by road to the Serengeti, with the option to stop en route at Olduvai Gorge. You will spend the night in a remote tented camp, with a campfire at night and a blanket of stars overhead.
A morning game drive before transferring to the Seronera airstrip for a flight to Zanzibar. On arrival, you will be met by a guide for the transfer to your hotel, in a gorgeous location on a lovely white sand beach. The rest of the day is free for you to relax.
Transfer from your hotel to the airport for your flight back home. Which will be the end of our Tanzania Family Safari.
