    Note: The evening of Day 11 of the Climb Kilimanjaro itinerary is the end of the trip. Those trip members not joining the safari extension transfer to the airport in the evening to depart on homeward-bound flights, while safari extension participants overnight at Mount Meru Game Lodge.

    From Mount Meru Game Lodge, we head into the 3,200-square-mile Ngorongoro Conservation Area, which includes Maasai land as well as a large portion of the Serengeti Plains. Driving up to the rim of Ngorongoro Crater, we see below us one of the earth's most picturesque Edens: on the crater's 105-square-mile grassy floor lives Africa's largest permanent concentration of wildlife, a sort of mini-Serengeti in a phenomenally scenic setting. We enter the Ngorongoro Conservation area's eastern side and after driving along the rim proceed to our private seasonal luxury camp. Our private tented camp is away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist area, just a short distance from the “boma” of Ole Dorop, a long-time Maasai friend and clan leader. In the early evening, Ole Dorop and members of the local Maasai community will prepare a special goat roast, a traditional "Ol Pul" Maasai feast. Those who are interested have a chance to sample the barbecue. The Maasai will stay at our camp until just after dark to share stories, songs, and dances—a wonderful opportunity to learn about their remarkable culture and traditions. Our regular dinner will be served as the Maasai barbecue is drawing to a close. Overnight at Private Wilderness Travel Seasonal Camp...BLD

    A note about the spelling of Masai and Maasai: When referring to the Masai Mara, one “a” is used, but “Maasai” is used to refer to the people.
    A full day's game drive takes us into the remarkable Ngorongoro Crater, with a picnic lunch around mid-day. During our time exploring this famous crater, we're likely to see elephant, zebra, wildebeest, and buffalo, and there's hardly a better place on earth for observing lions than on the crater floor, where the prides of lions are large. This is also one of the best places to see the endangered black rhino—about a dozen have been introduced into the crater environment and they are carefully monitored by biologists. In the late afternoon, we return to camp. Those who wish can go for a short hike with Ole Dorop to visit his boma and learn more about the Maasai way of life. Overnight at Private Wilderness Travel Seasonal Camp...BLD
    Leaving the quiet luxury of our Ngorongoro Highlands camp, we bid farewell to our new Maasai friends and begin the descent onto the vast plains of Serengeti National Park, one of the earth's natural paradises. After a picnic lunch, we continue into Serengeti National Park. The Maasai call it Siringitu, “the place where the land moves on forever.” Today, Serengeti National Park, along with the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Masai Mara National Reserve across the border in Kenya, protects the greatest and most varied collection of terrestrial wildlife on earth as well as one of the world's last great migratory systems. The park itself is 5,700 square miles, with open plains in the south, acacia-dotted savanna in the center, and black clay plains to the west.

    The Serengeti has it all! Tree-lined rivers, majestic kopje (rock outcroppings), and both long and short grass plains stretching for such vast distances that striking out into its expanses is like sailing the open seas. During the migration, huge numbers of migratory animals roam the plains in all directions—wildebeest number in the millions, intermingled with zebra numbering in the hundreds of thousands, along with a smorgasbord of other ungulates. These millions of hoofed animals form the traveling market of the Serengeti feeding the ever expanding numbers of predators: lions, leopards, hyenas, jackals, foxes, badgers, ratels, and many more. We spend our nights in a private seasonal luxury camp placed in the best location to maximize game viewing opportunities. Overnights at our private Wilderness Travel Serengeti Mobile Safari Camp...BLD each day
    We enjoy a final game drive as we return to Arusha. We arrive in Arusha in the mid-afternoon, with the opportunity for last minute shopping, and time to relax in our day rooms at a lodge. Evening transfer to Kilimanjaro International Airport for departure on homeward-bound flights...BLD
    A visa is not required for U.S. citizens visiting Tanzania.

    "The safari was incredible and our guide terrific—great sense of humor, persistent, calm, and eager to help us see as many extraordinary animals and sites that we could.

    Trip Levels

    With more than 200 different adventures to choose from, we want to help you find the trip that’s right for you. Our Trip Level system ranks each trip in two ways: a number rating from 1 to 6 according to the activity, and general travel rigors. 1 is the easiest and 6+ the most difficult—see descriptions below for explanations of each number. A plus (+) sign means the trip is a bit more strenuous than other trips of that level. The detailed explanation of each trip—below the bar with the number rating—is perhaps more important, specifying activities, altitudes, hiking, and travel conditions. The Detailed Itinerary, available by download or mail, gives further information. Our Area Managers can also answer questions and guide you to the trip that best suits your interests.

    Level 1 – Easiest

    Non-camping journeys, optional walks, little elevation gain or loss.

    Level 2 – Easy to Moderate

    Hotel nights and/or safari-style camping, hikes of two to four hours on some days. Other physical activities are sometimes included, such as optional sea kayaking.

     

    Level 3 – Moderate

    Half- to full-day hikes (3-6 hours) over rolling countryside on most days, occasional steep trails. Many of our hotel-based walking tours are in this category, as are our snorkeling adventures.

    Level 4 – Moderate to Strenuous

    Full-day hikes (4-6 hours), mountainous terrain, significant elevation gains and losses (hiking up or down as much as 3,000 feet) on many days. Altitudes no greater than about 10,000 feet.

     

    Level 5 – Strenuous

    Full-day hikes (4-8 hours), mountainous, steep terrain (hiking up or down as much as 3,500 feet) on many days. Trips with hiking at average altitudes of 10,000 to 12,000 feet are in this category.

    Level 6 – Very Strenuous

    Full-day hikes (5-8 hours), mountainous, steep terrain (hiking up or down as much as 3,500 feet) on many days. Most hikes take place at altitudes above 10,000 feet, with some days ascending as high as 18,000 feet.

For higher quality images and the ability to use long lenses for closer wildlife pictures, a DSLR camera is well worthwhile, though heavier. Most digital cameras and phones have good video options, but you may want to consider a GoPro for a lightweight, waterproof option. Always practice ahead of time with new equipment and bring your manual with you. You may want to consider renting camera equipment for your trip from places such as <a href=\"https:\/\/www.borrowlenses.com\/\">borrowlenses.com<\/a>. This is an especially good idea for renting large zoom lenses that you may need for just one trip. Adding their extra insurance fee to cover expensive equipment is recommended. <br><strong><br>Camera Accessories<\/strong><br>We recommend bringing at least two large capacity memory cards or a small digital storage unit (or tablet) to back up your photos, freeing space on your memory cards. Don't forget to bring a battery charger and a backup battery so one is always charged and ready to use. For trips where you may be away from power sources for multiple days, consider looking into a solar-powered battery charger or buying additional backup batteries, and check that you have the appropriate adapter for the electrical outlets in your destination.<br><strong><br>Sharing Your Images<\/strong><br>We would love for you to share photos from your trip, and with your permission, may even use your photos in our marketing materials or on our photo blog. We request that you send us a small sample of your best images. Please email your photos to wtphotoblog@gmail.com or tag us @WildernessTravel on social media.<br><strong><br>Photography Etiquette<\/strong><br>When taking pictures of local people, be aware of cultural considerations. Approaching people with a warm smile and using polite gestures or simple phrases to ask permission to photograph them usually works well. It is always recommended to engage people in conversation before asking to photograph them, but if people do not wish to have their photo taken, please honor their requests. We urge travelers to avoid giving money in exchange for photo opportunities, which makes it harder for future travelers to have a meaningful personal interaction with local people. Please always heed your Trip Leader's guidelines for what is appropriate.
