Overview

Embark on an adventure of a lifetime with Exodus Safaris' Budget Tanzania Safari Camping Tour, a journey that promises to immerse you in the breathtaking landscapes and abundant wildlife of the Northern Tanzania Safari Circuit. Begin your expedition in the vibrant city of Arusha, the gateway to Tanzania's most iconic national parks. From there, set out to explore the wonders of Lake Manyara National Park, a true gem of East Africa known for its unique tree-climbing lions, vast elephant herds, and diverse birdlife. As you traverse the park's lush forests, shimmering lakes, and open savannahs, keep your eyes peeled for sightings of giraffes, zebras, hippos, and more.

Next, venture into the legendary Serengeti National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Africa's premier safari destinations. Here, you'll have the chance to witness the drama of the wild unfold before your eyes as you encounter a myriad of predators, including lions, cheetahs, and leopards, stalking their prey across the endless plains. But perhaps the most awe-inspiring spectacle of all is the Great Migration, a natural phenomenon that sees millions of wildebeest, zebras, and other ungulates traverse the Serengeti in search of greener pastures. Witnessing this epic journey is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will leave you spellbound.

Finally, conclude your safari with a visit to the iconic Ngorongoro Crater, often referred to as the "Eighth Wonder of the World." Descend into this vast caldera, which is teeming with an incredible diversity of wildlife, including the famed "Big Five" – lions, elephants, buffalo, rhinos, and leopards. Marvel at the sheer abundance of animals that call this natural sanctuary home, from grazing herbivores to stealthy predators, all coexisting in perfect harmony within the confines of this ancient volcanic crater.

Throughout your journey, rest easy knowing that our experienced guides and comfortable camping accommodations will ensure a safe and enjoyable experience in the heart of the African wilderness. So pack your bags, lace up your boots, and get ready to embark on a remarkable and unforgettable safari adventure with Exodus Safaris.

Tour FeaturesΒ 

It is widely understood that the Wildebeest Great Migration is a seasonal phenomenon. As a result, it can be difficult to predict where and when this natural occurrence will take place. The wildebeest and other grazing animals move in a circular pattern along a route that spans around 1200 miles (1931km) between the Masai Mara in Kenya and the Serengeti in Tanzania.

This movement of wildlife can differ from area to area and season to season, with higher population density at some points and smaller groups at others. Furthermore, the Wildebeest Great Migration also changes in scope from one year to the next.

Spanning from grassy plains and savannahs to dense scrub, wetlands, and serene lakes, the park's diverse habitats are punctuated by intriguing rocky outcrops, offering natural shelters for a myriad of animals across the Serengeti Plains.

On the third day of our budget Tanzania safari, we embark once more into the vast Serengeti plains for an exhilarating early morning game drive. Witness the sun rising over the horizon, illuminating the expansive grasslands while spotting a diverse array of wildlife grazing and roaming freely. Remain vigilant for any signs of predators such as lions, cheetahs, or leopards prowling amidst the savannah.

After absorbing the sights and sounds of the Serengeti, return to camp for a traditional African breakfast, rejuvenating ourselves before setting out once more to explore the landscape in search of more wildlife encounters. As the day progresses, we make our way towards the iconic Ngorongoro Crater, a remarkable 600-meter deep caldera formed by an unflooded volcano.

As we descend, the lush forests of the crater slopes gradually transition into expansive acacia-studded savannahs bustling with wildlife. It's a swift realization why the Ngorongoro Crater earns its moniker as Africa's Garden of Eden.

Ngorongoro, an integral part of the Serengeti ecosystem, thrives with African wildlife within its vast caldera, stretching an impressive 18 km in diameter with towering walls reaching up to 600 meters.
