  • Day 3

    To Lake Manyara with game drives in the park.

    This morning we drive from Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park (approx. 2.5 hours), one of Tanzania’s more intimate parks. The lake shore teems with birds and the park is famous for its elusive tree-climbing lions. There is also a surprising number of large mammals and the striking cliffs of the Rift escarpment form a dramatic backdrop to our first experience of the region's magnificent wildlife.

  • Day 4

    Drive through Ngorongoro Conservancy; afternoon game drive in the Serengeti.

    En route through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area we stop to visit Olduvai Gorge. It is within this steep sided ravine that Louis and Mary Leakey made some of the world’s most important archaeological discoveries in the 1950s. Here in a small museum we are able to see evidence of our ancestors that have been dated back 2.5 million years. Then we head into the Serengeti National Park arriving after lunch. The rest of the afternoon is spent game viewing amongst the vast plains that are broken only by acacia trees and the occasional kopje (rock formation). In January and February we will normally meet the migration with large herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle. There are always plenty of resident animals, such as giraffe, buffalo, and elephant, as well as many large predators such as lion, cheetah, and leopard.

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 5

    Full day of game drives in the Serengeti.

    We have another full day in this wonderful park, rising early to make the most of our time. Our guides will choose the best spotting locations for the time of year; we can spend time at the Hippo pool watching these majestic animals laze about in the water happily living alongside the crocodiles, watch a big pride of lions,be in the middle of the migration, surrounded by wildebeest and zebras. We journey from the wide open plains to the kopjes: these volcanic rocky outcrops provide protection and shelter for a wide variety of animals and from the top we can see out across the vast grasslands of the Serengeti. This diverse and interesting landscape will provide us with the ultimate in game viewing, we will hopefully see all of the plain game; elephants, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, lions, cheetah and if you are lucky the elusive leopard, as well as huge amounts of interesting bird life such as the elegant secretary birds and the flightless ostrich.

    Morning game drive in the Serengeti; afternoon drive to Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

    We have a final game drive in the Serengeti before heading back into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and to the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater where we spend the night.
    Rhino Lodge or similar

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 7

    Game drive in Ngorongoro Crater.

    Sleeping near the Ngorongoro Crater means that we are one of the first vehicles to descend into the caldera. Ngorongoro is a conservation area rather than a national park. This means that whole area is managed for both the animals and the local Maasai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife. During the drive down to the crater floor we will gain a glimpse of the Maasai’s lifestyle. The crater walls provide a natural sanctuary for the animals, which means there is plenty to see: lions, elephants, buffalo, rhino and leopard (if you are lucky enough). The only animal you won’t see in here is a giraffe, whose long legs are unable to cope with the steeps sides of the crater. Later this afternoon we will leave the crater.
    Migunga permanent camp or similar

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 8

    Game drive in Tarangire N.P; stay at a lodge within the park.

    Today we head to Tarangire National Park. The park, which has its own source of water, comes into its own in the dry season as birdlife congregate on the Tarangire River and herds of giraffe, zebra, buffalo and, in particular, elephant can be seen. Predators such as lions and leopards are also regularly spotted here.Our lodge is located within the park. It has a large look out area from where sundowners can be had whilst watching the game on the sweeping plains below.

Essential Info



Most nationalities require a tourist visa for Tanzania, including British nationals, most EC nationals, Australians, New Zealanders, Americans and Canadians. The visa is available at the border and the cost for British and most other European Nationals is USD50 cash, whilst for US citizens it is USD100 cash.



Please note that although Tanzania does not officially require proof of Yellow Fever vaccination, at most airports and other points of entry you may be required to show a certificate of vaccination or an exemption certificate. This includes coming from Europe via, or transiting through an endemic country including the airports of Nairobi (Kenya) and Addis Ababa (Ethiopia). If visiting Zanzibar from mainland Tanzania border officials have been known to demand proof of Yellow Fever vaccination or an exemption certificate.

Recommended vaccinations are: Polio, Tetanus, Typhoid, Hepatitis A. Malaria prophylaxis is essential and we suggest that you seek advice from your GP or travel health clinic about which malaria tablets to take. Dengue fever is a known risk in places visited. It is a tropical viral disease spread by daytime biting mosquitoes. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis available for Dengue, and therefore the best form of prevention is to avoid being bitten. We recommend you take the usual precautions to avoid mosquito bites.

Eating and Drinking

You will have the opportunity to sample a selection of both Swahili and European dishes during the trip. Vegetarians can be catered for but, as is often the case when travelling in countries like Tanzania, the selection may not be as varied as what you are used to at home.


Tanzania lies just south of the equator and therefore is hot most of the year, there are two wet seasons, the long rains in April and may and the short rains in November. This tour runs only in the dry season so you should not expect much rain. The days will be warm usually between 15 and 25 C. However, it can be cooler at night especially in Ngorongoro Crater.

Is this trip for you?

This is an excellent trip for wildlife, scenery and a taste of life amongst the Masaai tribe. There are some long drives, and although the distances are not huge, some of the roads are quite poor and bumpy especially after the rainy season. The lodges and permanent camp sites are very comfortable and are situated amongst beautiful gardens with the additional benefit of proper beds, ensuite bathrooms and most rooms have a verandah. On safari we travel in 4WD landcruisers or landrovers. Each vehichle has a roof hatch, which greatly enhances game viewing. There will be some long drives but as most of these will be in parks and conservation areas they will allow for constant animal spotting.

1 night hotel, 2 nights lodges, 4 nights permanent tented camps.
The accommodation used is a mixture of lodges and permanent tented camps. All of these have proper beds and en suite bathrooms making them very comfortable. The lodges and permanent camps are located just outside the parks but usually amongst beautiful gardens. The exception to this is at Tarangire National Park, where we use accommodation located within the park. Listen out for hyenas.

    My fourth Exodus safari !!!

    I have now travelled twice to both Tanzania, and also to Kenya. On this particular trip we were so fortunate to watch a large pride of, (about 20) , adult lions in the Ngorongoro crater. It was disappointing though, that despite seven full days here, driving hundreds of miles criss-crossing the country, we did not see one solitary rhinoceros at all. We were told that the Tanzanian Rangers had put some of their rhinos into private reserves to protect them from poachers. However, we had several lengthy sightings of leopards during the week.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Perhaps because the Short Rains started early this year, in October, the Great Migration also began sooner. We were all really surprised to see thousands, maybe tens of thousands, of wildebeest and zebra nearly every day of this trip. We also photographed plenty of giraffe, cheetahs, elephants, and the very scary Cape Buffalo.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Our Leader, Jackson, seemed a little introverted at times, but he did his job well enough. Our Driver however, Julius, was full of local information, and always keen to point out seemingly hidden animals, and beautiful birds, also fabulous flowers and trees. Thanks Julius, you were just so enthusiastic about Tanzania.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take torches, a head torch is really useful. Take hair shampoo, it is not supplied in the two very basic permanent tented camps. Also essential were sunscreen, and mosquito repellent.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    This is my second visit to Lake Manyara National Park, and on neither occasion have I seen the very elusive tree climbing lions. We were told that they had not been spotted at all this year. Plenty of baboons, and hippos here in this park, though. Later on during this trip we were really lucky to watch a large Monitor Lizard.

    This was not only our first trip with Exodus but our first safari and we were not disappointed. We were well looked after and our leader and drivers were extremely knowledgable which made for a very enjoyable and interesting trip. It was a busy schedule visiting four different areas, Lake Manyara, the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and finally Tarangire Safari Park, each one slightly different. Our group were in two Land Cruisers on Game Drives every day, we could sit and enjoy the scenery and stop to watch an amazing amount of wildlife. It was a privilege to see the wildebeest migrating it was amazing to see them across the plains on the Serengeti as far as the eye could see; a photograph just couldn't capture the image, you had to just spend time looking at the view. I would certainly go on a safari again.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Seeing all the large animals elephants, giraffes and the big cats in such close proximity for the first time was amazing. If I had to say which of those was the most amazing I think it would be looking at a leopard in a tree, he was beautiful.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Jackson our group leader was very helpful and friendly, he did his job wll.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    When travelling on a safari or any other holiday where you are packing and unpacking frequently it's quite useful to buy some packing cubes for some of your clothes. To my husband and I they were a godsend, they kept things well organised.

    Tanzania tented safari

    My overall experience of this trip was 'satisfactory' only because I saw lots of animals. Our Landrover though was ancient, slow and needed stones behind the wheel to hold it when parked. We were in a group of 3 vehicles and the petrol tank fell of off one and meant that 7 people had to be accommodated in the other 2 for 4 hours on very rough roads. The breaks on another were so questionable it had to be replace (with another old vehicle) None of the drivers were in charge and because of this departure times etc were chaotic because different drivers have different instructions and would only travel together. The Exodus rep on arrival was poor, reading out the trip notes and giving no additional information. She was more concerned in us appointing a leader who would collect all tips straight away for the whole trip (thousands of dollars) - we refused. We were in tents five nights not four. One of the tents (2 nights) had seen better days. Packed lunches were left for hours in the sun. We spent hours travelling on roads - exacerbated because of the age of the vehicles which could not travel at speed - we were overtaken constantly.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    There was no inspection allowed moment though I did see lots of animalsDAiRA

    What did you think of your group leader?

    She was a poor representative of Exodus.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    If you are happy to be in old vehicles, don't mind long and bumpy but slow journeys and are happy for there to be no leadership from the trip organisers then book this trip - you will see lots of animals which is the whole purpose of safari

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    This experience of an Exodus holiday is so different to 3 years ago when I couldn't have praised them enough. I doubt I will travel with them again following this holiday.

    Reply from Exodus

    We would like to thank Neil for his review, although we were concerned to learn of the issues this group experienced with their vehicle; following this unfortunate and one-off vehicle breakdown, Exodus undertook an audit of all the safari vehicles used  on this trip.  The vehicle in question has not been used on an Exodus trip since this date in 2016.  As well as the drivers/safari guides who accompany this trip, we have now appointed an Exodus tour leader who handles the general logistics of the trip and is better equipped to deal with any queries from the group.  We are confident these improvements have made this trip an even better experience.

    Classic Tanzania Safari

    Best holiday I have ever had! Wildlife in abundance and closer than I could have hoped for and landscape was breath-taking. Great organisation; brilliant guide and fantastic travelling companions.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Apart from ALL of it (!), getting close to two cheetah brothers under a tree; being surrounded by elephants on more than one occasions and being surrounded by a herd of zebra was surreal - to be honest, there are too many inspirational moments to list!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Godsun was amazing. Friendly, great sense of humour, nothing was too much trouble for him. He went out of his way to give us a great holiday and his knowledge of the wildlife and culture of Tanzania was brilliant. I couldn't have wished for a better guide.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Make sure you have large memory chips in your camera - I took over 3000 photos - so much to see! Be prepared to be overwhelmed and take each day as it comes because I found every day threw something at me that was even more amazing than the day before.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I never thought a holiday would top the last 3 I have been on with Exodus but this did (and the previous 3 have been excellent)! The abundance of wildlife at close quarters, the varied and breathtaking scenery all blew me away. I have never said "WOW" so many times in a day! Would I go back again? Definitely! Thank you Exodus!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    For me this has solidified my ambition to work with animals and has prompted me to go back to studying. Hard to pick just one moment. However, when about 40 elephants walked within a hands reach from my safari truck, each one of them looking at you was simply fantastic!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Pack your kit in a bag with squash able sides as the vehicle has a limited amount of room for luggage. Try to give any leftover lunch to the locals to avoid waste. Never feed the animals. Take mosquito repellent.

    A brilliant trip from start to finish. I was amazed at how much we saw on the drives. There was nothing that we didn't see. Everything from Lions eating, to a Leopard relaxing up a tree, to Elephants rolling around in mud. Not to mention scores of Zebra, Wildebeest, and Giraffe and even a well hidden Cheetah.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Coming so close to Lions, they were literally feet away from us, but so engrossed into tucking into their dinner that they barely noticed we were there. Also waking up early morning and seeing a couple of Zebra grazing just feet away.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    The leaders on our trip were excellent. They were very knowledgeable about everything we saw, and knew all the best areas where we would see things. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and they always had a smile on their faces.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Make saure you take plenty of camera memory and spare battery. Even if you're not an avid photographer you'll be surprised at how many pictures you will take! Power is not always available for charging things, so its a good idea to have back up batteries.Pack for all weather as well. It can get very hot in the day, but also quite chilly at night and early morning.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The majority of camps where you stay are located in the parks themselves, and so a lot of the time you're surrounded by wildlife. This adds an extra sense of adventure and you never know what you might see! If you're looking for a trip where you're virtually guaranteed sightings of animals big and small, from Lions to small colourful birds, then this is the trip for you.

Seeing so many elephants in Tarangire spraying themselves with water they had dug up from the dry river bed. One of the babies kept putting his legs in the holes to cool himself down, very cute.

An overview of flight options

Exodus is committed to making joining our tours as easy as possible, wherever you live. We generally only block book seats from London, but this certainly does not mean that you need to fly from there. Depending on the route and airlines available, there will usually be various options available for those who want to fly from their local airport.

This page aims to provide a useful overview of the options available to our clients. However, the best flight arrangements should be tailored to your personal requirements, so please contact our Sales team for expert advice.


What kind of options do I have ?

1. We can book for you: Flights from anywhere in the world - not via London  

Depending on the route, this may be direct or via an overseas hub like Amsterdam, the Middle East or elsewhere. On short haul routes there may be direct flights with low cost airlines, charter flights or scheduled airlines. Exodus can book most, but not all, of these for you. The most appropriate airline may be different to that which we use for the group flight from London, but many people now travel on different airlines and meet up with their fellow passengers at the destination.

Pros Cons
  • May be the most direct route
  • Often the extra fare compared to the London flight is minimal.
  • As you will be in the hands a single airline for your entire journey, the airline will be responsible for your bags and your connections.
  • You may not be able to join the group transfers. However, we can usually arrange private transfers, or book your flights to try and coincide with the group transfers. See notes on transfer arrangements below.


2. We can book for you: Connecting flights from your local airport to London

Exodus can book connecting flights to London so you can join the group flight there. Connecting times will be followed according to airline advice, or as requested by clients. There are two types of fares we can use for this option: a 'through-fare' or a 'published fare'.
a) A 'through-fare' is where you will be in the main airline's care throughout. You change planes, but your bags are checked all the way through to your final destination. 

b) A 'published fare' ticket is completely seperate from your onward ticket from London. It is usually cheaper than a through-fare but will need to be paid for and issued as soon as it is booked. This can be a problem if your tour has not yet reached minimum numbers. On 'published fares' neither airline is aware that you have connecting flights, so Exodus is responsible for timing your connection, not the airlines involved. The tickets are also usually non changeable and non refundable.

Pros Cons
  • Depending on the fare type, Exodus or the airline is responsible for flight connections.
  • Through fare tickets can be expensive.
  • On a published fare, tickets must be issued immediately; tickets on published fares can be very difficult to change if onward flight times change; bags are not checked though to your final destination.
  • Published fares are non-refundable.


3. Booking some or all of the flights yourself

You can also book connecting air travel yourself, either to London, or all the way to the start point. There may be certain airlines or routes we don't have access to, so this is always an option. However, if you make your own travel arrangements you become liable for any delays, cancellations or missed connections, and Exodus is not required to offer refunds if you have trouble reaching the start of your trip.

Pros Cons
  • You might find cheaper fares, or routes not available to Exodus.
  • You are responsible for any delays or missed connections, and the cost of the tour is not protected should you miss your flight be cancelled.


 Notes on transfer arrangements

Sometimes it is possible to travel on a different airline to the group flight from London. Where this is the case, we need to think about ensuring you meet up with the group with minimum extra cost and hassle.

  • On certain trips, it is easy to arrive on a different flight and still meet the group at the hotel with time in hand. We can usually arrange private transfers (at extra cost) or offer advice on taking a taxi to the start hotel.
  • On other trips (especially in Europe), the transfer meets the group flight and then travels some distance to the first night's accommodation. Where this is the case, our Sales team will try to arrange flights that arrive before (and depart after) the group. However, we do have to make it clear in your final documentation that if your flights are delayed, the transfer cannot wait for you. While Exodus or our local operators will do what we can to help you reach the start point of the tour, any additional costs must be paid by the client.
