The group arrives at Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO). Participants are met by a representative of Ensembles Explores Adventures and transferred to a hotel in Arusha.
In the morning after breakfast (around 7:30 AM) your safari guide will arrive at the hotel and inform the receptionist that he is waiting for you. After meeting up with your driver you will travel to Tarangire National Park, and by 10:00 AM you will already be on your first safari!
In this park you have the chance to see lots of wild Tanzanian animals (lions, buffaloes, giraffes, zebras, etc.), but above all else it is famous for its astonishing number of elephants, who typically tend to stay close to their drinking source, the Tarangire River.
You should be aware that this is wild nature, so the guide cannot make any guarantees on the presence of specific wild animals, but you can be sure he will do his best to find everything you're looking for!
At lunch time you will be provided a meal, after which the safari will continue. In the evening you will be transferred to Recommended Accommodation.
This is your first day on safari, so we ask that you please pay special attention to the national park’s visitor rules and our company recommendations.
Thank you in advance for your understanding.
After breakfast you will start the safari by being transferred to the central part of the Serengeti (also called Seronera). Here your driver will try to find the animals you're the most interested in. Closer to lunch time you will visit the Serengeti Visitor Centre, where you will be offered a lunchbox and provided with lots of interesting information not only about the animals’ populations, but also about the history of the National Park. Also, in this area you will be able to see hyraxes, which are the elephant's closest relatives.
It is difficult to describe in detail all the animals of the Serengeti valley, for they number in the thousands: elephants, buffalo, ostriches, giraffes, jackals, hyenas, lions, antelopes, leopards and cheetahs—just keep your eyes peeled and enjoy the nature around you. In the evening you will be transferred to Recommended Accommodation, where you will have dinner and be able to rest.
After breakfast in the morning you will safari in the eastern and southern parts of the park. The greater part of these areas is a savanna with wide open spaces, which provides a likely opportunity to see cheetah hunting antelopes. Lunch boxes will be served during the game drive.
By evening you will be transferred to Recommended Accommodation in Ngorongoro, where you will have dinner and be able to rest.
On this day it is best to leave the hotel as early as possible so you can see the variety of animals that are only active during the morning hours; breakfast will be packed in lunchboxes specifically for this purpose. At 6:30 AM you will set off for Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and after about an hour you will already be inside the crater. Ngorongoro is one of the most famous and interesting of Tanzania's national parks because here you can find the greatest number of different animal species per square kilometre. You will have the chance to see buffalo, elephants, lions, wildebeests, zebras, hippopotamus and feline species such as caracals and servals. The luckiest travelers might even see a rhinoceros, an animal whose numbers are rapidly declining.
By lunch time you will arrive at the lake side, where you will be offered lunchboxes, after which the safari will continue, ending in a few hours with a transfer back to Arusha for your departure and own arrangement.
Rest in the hotel and transfer to the airport.
Note: Hotel check-out is at 11:00 AM. 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.
We've booked a safary and a Kilimandscharo treck with Exsembles Explores Adventure. Both trips were unforgetable and intense experiences. The organisation was smooth. We had a pick up from the airport and stayed in the Pili Pili hostel before and after the trip.
Great experience. Good guides and Cook! Guides communicate by radio, when animals are seen somewhere. So there's have a better chance too find them. Like this we have seen the big five and all cats. It was a great trip!
We had a group hiking to the top of Africa via marangu route for 6 days with 2gether 2africa Safaris.
It was a lovely experienced that we experienced in our entire life. I would definetly recommend this tour operators if your on a budget and if you do wanna do a solo or couples, they will treat you well and give you anything ASAP
This is my first review for 2gether2africa. We booked both a safari and Kilimanjaro so I will seperate them out as they were two different experiences.We booked a safari for 4 days and 3 nights which included lodge based stays in the Simba Lodge, Tarangire, Kati Kati Lodge in the Serengeti and finally the Rhino Lodge in the Ngorongo crater. We would of loved more time on safari but this was all we had. Initial communication was good with the company (Mike)
With 2gether 2africa safaris we booked two trips, hiking Mt. Meru (3 days) and safari trip (3 days, Ngorongoro crater and Serengeti). We had two amazing and completely different experiences. Mt. Meru was adventurous and a bit challenging with glorious and rewarding feeling when we reached the summit. Safari was more relaxed and easy going with our eyes all the time wide open to see as much wild animals as possible (and we were lucky with that).
and my friends we did a little hiking to the top of Mount MERU last week with 2gether 2africa Safaris and we had an exceptional experience through the whole hiking trip
We gotta admit it was a little bit challenging with a lot of fun and cool views on the way from the beginning to the end. On the way to the starting point we did pass through the Arusha National park and saw some wild animals like the giraffe, buffaloes, huge elephant that was stuck on the way and had to way for like 20 minutes for it to pass and the wild boar they are in form of pigs, our guide told us are the wild pigs.
We went on a 15 day trip on Serengeti, Manyara, Ngorongoro and Tarangire with 2gether Safaris which was the most beautiful experience we ever heard in our life.We did enjoy everything including the warm welcome from Kilimanjaro airport to the end of the trip. We saw big cats,enjoyed the meal from our great chef, and also from our professional guide, Mike, who had answers to all of our questions from the beginning to the end.
We went with 2gether2africa on a 3 day trip to Sipi Falls in Uganda. We were amazed by the beautiful green nature of the area and how peaceful it is. The guys at 2gether2africa were super accommodating and were there to provide for all of our needs. We were impressed by their wealth of knowledge and their warm hospitality on our trip. They were very professional and had really thought through everything we needed for the trip so it ran very smoothly and was exactly what we wanted in our holiday. We would definitely take a trip with them again. Thanks guys!
We booked safari trip with 2gether 2africa safaris and had amazing experience. We visited Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater and were lucky to see all the animals we were hoping for. Our guide was really helpful, trying all the time that we see as much as possible. He also taught us so much about animals, african culture and swahili language. And chef was also great, preparing for us delicious food and by request vegetarian. Only one problem, it was too much food :).
I went on the africa through eyes tour with Mike, and had a truly extraordinary experience. The accommodations where excellent, starting before the safari itself. Mike organized our hotel and our drive there, helping us navigate every step of the way. The safari itself was awesome, with great guides who knew the answers to all our questions and had great English. The chef who prepared tasty vegetarian food at our request and somehow managed to cook great food in the camping grounds. The staff went above and beyond so that we would get the most of our stay and see all there is to see. Above all was the connection we had with them. It honestly felt like we were all old friends, whether it was joking around in the car or hanging out at the campsite. I would never have imagined that my safari would be such a unique experience. There is honestly not a bad thing for me to say, simply book this tour and let mike blow your mind.
I went on a 4 day safari to Serengeti, Tarangire and Ngorongoro crater with 2gether 2africa. I don’t have one complaint to write about. It was clear that the Godfrey Leonard Richard (Mike) put a lot of time and effort into planning our safari. Our guide, Suliman, was extremely knowledgeable and took time to explain about any animal we saw or asked about. Our chef (we called him the president) energized us and always left us happy with the food. He also had no issue catering vegetarian for me. In the evenings we all hung out and all the staff added greatly to the atmosphere. I quickly learned that being with nice, knowledgeable and friendly makes all the difference for the time between seeing animals. All in all, 2gether 2africa exceeded all of our expectations. Its a perfect choice for both families and backpackers. The thing that stood out the most was the connection we had with the staff, who proved that this was so much more than a business transaction.
Finally we got the adventure we were waiting for our entire life to see Africa Savanna. We had smooth conversation from the beginning with 2gether 2africa Safaris till the end. The campsite and lodges was well planned and organized as we requested.
We booked 7 day tour to Serengeti, Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater and Walking tour to the Highlands of Ngorongoro. In our first night we stayed at Karatu Simba Lodge which was amazingly to see the sunset, we also stayed to the amazing Serengeti Simba Lodge.
Our Guide Steven was the most part of making things great! He was knowlegable about the Wildlife and he got eyes like Cheetah to spot where the animals are hiding. He knows exactly where to go and to find the animals.
My two friends and I went on a three day trip with Leo. We are all 21 years and, and it fits us perfectly, highly recommended for other backpackers, families and couples.
The two first days we went on safari in Mikumi nationalpark just a few hours outside Dar es Salam. Tanzanian trafic police with their pointy hats and nice uniforms are fast to stop you on their traffic stops each 15 kilometers, but charismatic Leo was very used to this and knew exactly how to handle the situation.
