Nothern Circuit

Arusha, the gateway to the world famous game sanctuaries of Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire

and Lake Manyara, is one of the oldest towns in Tanzania. At 1,540 metres above sea level, Arusha

enjoys a very agreeable climate throughout the year. Positioned at the centre of Africa between the

Cape and Cairo on the Great North Road, As act centre point marked with the clock tower, Arusha

is the administrative seat of the East African Community made up of

Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda Rwanda and Burundi


Arusha offers an excellent opportunity for authentic souvenirs shopping, including the bold Makonde

carvings, and the colourful Tinga Tinga works and batiks. Tanzanite, the native gemstone of Arusha,

and one of the most beautiful and exciting gems from Africa, are sold in all gemstone shops in town

alongside other locally mined stones like Ruby, Rhodolite and Tourmaline.

Tanzanite was first discovered in 1967, some 40 kilometres to the southeast of Arusha at Mererani.

To date Mererani remains the only commercially viable source for Tanzanite in the world. Tanzanite

was named after Tanzania.

Mt. Kilimanjaro

For the more adventurous, mountain climbing is often a very popular option. Mount Kilimanjaro

which stands at an altitude of 5,895m is Africa’s tallest freestanding mountain and is situated

only three degrees below the equator in Northern Tanzania. It is a protected area, allowing

climbers to enjoy their visit without causing any harm to the environment.


Located to the east of Arusha town, about 20 kilometres drive

from Arusha; Mount Meru is the second highest

mountain in Tanzania. The mountain stands at an

altitude of 4566 meters above sea level inside the

Arusha National Park. Meru has one route to the top and can be

attempted for three days but we highly recommend doing for four days for acclimatization.

Most alpines uses Meru for acclimatization before the Kilimanjaro climb. The mountain

has less snow formed at the volcano eruption.Unlike Kilimanjaro when you are climbing the

Mount Meru you have to be escorted by an armed ranger(s) as you pass through the Arusha

National Park. It is at this time when you will enjoy the walking safari as you pass the groups

of African buffaloes, Zebras, Black and white colobus monkey just little wildlife to mention.

Arusha National Park

Volcanoes erupted to make the dramatic terrain of Arusha National Park

in Tanzania, just east of the huge fault known as the Great Rift Valley.

They spewed fire and lava into the air 20 million years ago, and then

collapsed into two big calderas, the Ngurdoto and Meru craters, which

mark the western and eastern boundaries of the 52-square-mile park.

Depressions in boiling mud became the Momela Lakes.

Today, these lakes are fed by underground streams that leach salt from

the alkaline soil and support algae, a few small fish, and thousands of

birds, especially grebes and flamingo.

Manyara national Park

Lake manyara national park is at the base of the Great Rift Valley

escarpment, stretching for about several miles. The park covers

about 130 sq miles (336 sq km), it has a spectacular view with

easy back drop on Rift valley. The surrounding vicinity comprises

forest and green grassland. Lake manyara offers perfect introduction

to Tanzania wildlife species including birds.

Manyara offers varieties of wildlife animals including; lions, leopards,

cheetah, elephants, jackals, African Cape buffalo, wildebeest, grants

and thomson´s gazelles, hippos and many other large herd of mammals l

ike, eland, baboon, dikdik and over 400 different species of birds.

Tarangire national Park

Named after the river that flows through the park, Tarangire National Park is one of the lesser known Tanzanian National

Parks, giving it a real air of undiscovered Africa. Famous for massive baobabs and large herds of elephant, Tarangire National

Park is small but still home to a significant wildlife population, with a density of wildlife matched 5 only by Ngorongoro.

Birding is particularly good here; the swamps, tinged green year round, are the focus for 550 bird varieties; the most breeding

species in one habitat anywhere in the world.


The Ngorongoro Crater is a true Garden of Eden, with highland forest covering the sheer

sides of the caldera and is popularly known as the eighth natural wonder of the world.

Measuring 16 kilometres in diameter and enclosed in walls over 600 metres high, it acts as

a spectacular barrier encircling the wildlife that roams the largest intact crater in the world.

Within Ngorongoro Conservation Area you can visit one of the foremost craters in the world

which was formed 2.5 million years ago


The archaeological site of Olduvai Gorge is located in the eastern Serengeti in northern

Tanzania within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The gorge is a steep sided 4 to 8-

kilometre (30 mile) long ravine, which forms part of the Great Rift Valley. It is situated on

a series of fault lines which, along with centuries of erosion, has revealed fossils and remnants

of early humankind. The name Olduvai originated from a European misspelling of Oldupai, the

correct Maasai word for this region of great historical importance – named after the wild sisal

plant fibre growing in abundance in the gorge

Serengeti National park

Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration,

when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000

Thomson’s gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet,

the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game- viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo,

smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni,

impala and Grant’s gazelle.

Mikumi National Park

Mikumi is the access point for the southern Tanzania tourist circuit. A tented camp lies to

the south of the main road at Vuma hill and there’s another campsite just north of the road.

Trees and other plants distinguish Mikumi. Marula trees (Mng’ongo in Swahilli) are common.

This tree occurs in Deciduous, wooded grassland from south Africa to Ethiopia and the fruit

is used to make the Amarula wild fruit cream drink that is indigenous to Africa. Elephants

regard the Marula as a delicacy, vigorously shaking the tree to dislodge the fruit. Tamarind

with its many medicinal uses, grotesque but distinctive baobabs, sausage, cassia, black

thorn and African blackwood trees exist in

Mikumi as do a profusion of flowers.

Selous National Park

The Selous is known in swahili as Shamba la Bibi - literally translated as ‘‘grandmother’s garden”. It has

the largest number of several species of animals found in a single reserve anywhere in the world.

The Selous ecosystem encompasses a wide spectrum of wildlife habitats including open grasslands,

miombo woodlands that cover three quarters of the reserve, and riverineforests.

Asaresultofitsuniqueecologicalimportance, the Selous was declared a World Heritage Site in 1982.

Selous was the son of a chairman of the London Stock Exchange, Born in England in 1851, he became a

noted naturalist, conservationist and big game hunter.

Katavi National Park

Katavi National Park consists of a series of secret floodplains that open up in front of you as you arrive

through their woodland fringes. I t is during the dry season, when the floodwaters retreat, that Katavi

truly comes into its own. The Katuma, reduced to a shallow, muddy trickle, forms the only

source of drinking water for miles around, and the flanking floodplains support game concentrations

that defy belief. An estimated 4,000 elephants might converge on the area, together with several herds

of 1,000-plus buffalo, while an abundance of giraffe, zebra, impala and reedbuck provide easy pickings

for the numerous lion prides and spotted hyena clans whose territories converge on the floodplains.

Ruaha National Park

Most memorable sighting at Ruaha is of a mature, spiral- horned male greater Kudu. Greater

Kudu males are solitary or found in bachelor herds except during mating. In contrast,

females may be seen throughout the year, usually in

dense bush country in groups of 6 to 10 including their offspring. Elephants are in abundance

and Ruaha has been nicknamed “Giraffic Park” because of its 8,000 Maasai giraffe.

Lying in the rain shadow of the Udzungwa Mountains, the park is bisected by the great Ruaha river.

It is the most southern extension of the Maasai steppes and is among the most arid of Tanzania’s 14

national parks.Ruaha is a transition zone where much of the flora and fauna that distinguishes east

and southern Africa meets and overlaps.

Coastal Circuit

The 18 th Century the Sultan of Oman visited Zanzibar and was amazed by the favourable climate of the Island.

Comparing with his homeland’s climate, the Sultan decided to stay in Zanzibar. As a result of his decision to

settle in Zanzibar, he brought and planted spices, traded slaves, gold, and ivory by that reason Zanzibar

become a major slave market

Stone Town

This town is also known as Unguja Town or Zanzibar Town. At Stone Town you will see the following things:

The Stone Town Cultural Centre (Old Dispensary) situated along the Mizingani Road, the four storey building

originally built as a private residence, but later used by colonists as Dispensary

Bagamoyo was another major slave trading post in East Africa. Bagamoyo, which literally means “Lay down your

heart” in Swahili, was probably given this name because it was the last place where the slaves stayed in Tanzania

before they were taken to Zanzibar as main market to foreign lands. The town is 80 km north of Dar-es-Salaam.

Bagamoyo is not a busy port anymore, but rather a touring place where one can go for holidays and stay in a

quiet Resort Hotel, moving around the town, enjoy the white sand beach and listen to the history of old Bagamoyo

town from historians and non-historians


Saadani is a newly visited park in Tanzania despite the fact that it was officially recognized as a Game Reserve more

than thirty years ago. Located about 60 km from Bagamoyo town, Saadani appears small but really rich in natural

vegetation, insects, swamps, coral reefs, wild and birdlife. Saadani National Park is home to lions, Zebras, warthogs,

giraffes, elephants, leopards, hartebeests and hyenas. Large flocks of flamingos, Senegal plover, African hawk eagles,

wood sandpiper, African spoonbills, yellow-billed, sand plover, black-winged stilt and little-spotted woodpeckers

Mafia Island lies off Rufiji River delta about 120 Kilometres south of Dar es Salaam. It is 160 Kilometres south

of Zanzibar and the same distance east of the Selous. It is reached in 45 minutes from Dar es Salaam, one hour

from Selous and Zanzibar, by light aircraft. The island was an important trading post from 11th to 13th centuries.

Today the island is known as a Resort Island for deep-seas fishing and scuba diving. With 40,000 inhabitants,

Mafia is an archipelago ringed by pristine coral reefs. It offers ideal conditions for diving, snorkelling,

big game fishing, surfing, sailing, windsurfing scuba diving, swimming and boats excellent cuisine.

The park also offers bird watching and picnic excursions


Located about 80km from Zanzibar Island, about the same distance directly east of Tanga on the Tanzanian

mainland. With its hilly landscape its highest point is less than 100 metres above sea level, by size Pemba is

smaller than Unguja.

Arab sailors once named Pemba as ‘El Huthera’, meaning the Green, due to her dense and lush vegetation.

There are more natural forests and plantations than on Zanzibar Island, and Pemba grows more cloves than

her Zanzibar. Today, earnings from the clove crop are supported by other agricultural products, cattle raising,

and by fishing, which is an important source of livelihood. Pemba is also popular for its voodoo and traditional healers.


Longido is situated about 80 km north of Arusha on the way to Nairobi, just at the foot of Longido mountain,

which rises up steeply from the plains and forms an important orientation point for people in the wide surroundings.

On the mountain and the surrounding plains the Maasai warriors wander about with their cattle, looking for

pasture and water. Once a week, on Wednesdays, the cattle are herded to a cattle market in Longido town.

Maasai families live in traditional bomas scattered over the area. In the early morning, women leave the boma

to fetch water and collect firewood. Young children play around the mud houses and start at a very early age

to take care of kids and lambs


Ilkinding’a lies at 10 km north of Arusha town, a 30 minutes drive. From Arusha town, take the small road North

at the Ilboru junction on the Moshi-Nairobi road. Follow the Ilboru Safari Lodge sign. With its neighbour Ilboru,

it has played a role in the history of Arusha. The Lutheran Missionaries form Germany and Sabaya, the chief of

the Wa-arusha people, agreed in 1904 to build the first church and school in Ilboru. From that time on, co-operation

between the church and the chiefs was settled

Mamba & Marangu

Mamba and Marangu are within 3 km of each other and the participating lodges in the area have worked together to

establish activities for their visitors. Magnificent views of valleys rumble ring and waterfalls offer great entertainment

for nature lovers and bird watchers. With more than seven waterfalls in the vicinity one can spend a whole day enjoying

the views. Walking tours will provide excellent views overlooking the area including points where the lights of Nairobi

can be seen at night
