  1. Day 1 Arusha – Lake Manyara National Park – Karatu

    After a short briefing in the morning, you will travel westwards to the small Lake Manyara National Park. The park with its shallow alkaline lake is known for its over 400 bird species, primate-filled forests (look out for the long-tailed Guenon monkeys) and grassy plains. A large area of the park is covered by the alkaline Lake Manyara which is home to colonies of flamingos and other water birds.

    Apart from elephants, you might also spot giraffes, hippos, wildebeests and impalas while the forests near the lake are teeming with noisy groups of monkeys and baboons.

    From the pop-up roof of the safari vehicle you will be able to absorb the sights and sounds of nature. In the late afternoon you will leave the Lake Manyara National Park and head to Karatu, where you will spend the night at the.
    Lunch; Dinner

  2. Day 2 Karatu – Ngorongoro Crater – Arusha

    After breakfast, your safari continues to the Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is the world’s largest caldera, a feature formed by the collapse of land after a volcanic eruption. It is approximately 18 km in diameter and home to about 25,000 mammals.

    In this relatively small area you can find almost all the mammals of East Africa ranging from Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles to mountain reedbucks in the forests on the slopes.

    You might also see spotted hyenas and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. It is also possible to spot the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard in the few hours spent in the crater. After lunch at a picnic spot you will leave the crater and return to Arusha by the early evening.

Hotels, Camping and Lodges

Brought to you by the same people who created Bougainvillea Safari Lodge, Country Lodge is its ‘little sister’ situated right next doors!

Country Lodge is the brainchild of Reginald Bayo and Jacob Ombay, both of whom were born and brought up in Karatu.

Both are successful businessmen in their own right and respected members of Karatu’s community and the hospitality industry.

Jacob comes from a long line of farmers, before branching out into retail and then hospitality. Reggie is well known within the tourism industry.

He mentored under Margaret Gibb Kullander of the old, legendary Gibb’s Farm, as Assistant Manager and Executive Chef before joining Jacob to create new successes with Country Lodge and its predecessor Bougainvillea Safari Lodge.

Country Lodge reflects their goal in providing comfortable accommodation with country charm, excellent food and service at an affordable price.

Reggie and Jacob are ‘hands on’ and dedicated hosts, and their genuinely warm and helpful staff are a reflection of just that.

Both Reggie and Jacob will be delighted to meet you during your stay at Country Lodge and the staff will ensure your stay is comfortable, relaxing and a part of your Tanzanian adventure you will cherish.

All our safari packages include unlimited game drives with no restriction on mileage or fuel. This gives our guests more freedom and flexibility allowing the exploration of more secluded regions for exclusive wildlife viewing.

Unlimited Mileage means that you are able to drive for as long as you want within the parks’ operational hours (6am to 6pm), and the designated area for game drives on the given day.

For example, if the itinerary designates Central Serengeti, then you are able to stay within the Central Serengeti region as long as you want, stretching to the borders of Western Serengeti.

However, we cannot, for instance, drive from Central Serengeti to the Mara River then back. Some companies quote you for limited game drives with restrictions on mileage and fuel.

You wouldn’t make it very far from the main road or have the ability explore the more exclusive areas of the park. With unlimited game drives, you can fully enjoy your safari completely worry-free.

Absolutely. We provide unlimited beverages in our safari vehicle including bottled drinking water, your preferred soft drinks, juice, domestic beer, French-press coffee and tea.
All our safari vehicles are equipped with a small refrigerator to keep your drinks chilled for you to enjoy during your safari.
It is important to never assume that any of the animals encountered on your game drive are tame. Though attacks by wild animals are unusual, nothing in the African wilderness is predictable.
While you are staying in your safari lodges and camps, it is important to be especially cautious and aware of your surroundings as many of these areas are not fenced and contain wildlife roaming freely. If you have children with you, keep them in sight and do not let them wander alone.
At smaller tented lodges, you will always be escorted to and from your tent for dinner or during the night. Should you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to raise them to the staff or your guide.
Safaris are casual vacations! Dress comfortably and pack lightly. As you will be spending most of your safari viewing in the vehicle, loose-fitting and light coloured clothing are recommended. Avoid dark colors (i.e. black, dark blue) as they tend to attract unwanted attention from insects such as the tsetse fly.

SAFARI CLOTHING

  • One pair of comfortable walking shoes (i.e. sneakers, hiking shoes)
  • One pair of sandals or flip-flops
  • Casual, loose-fitting clothing
  • Swimsuit
  • One warm fleece or sweater
  • Extra Cotton socks and underwear
  • Hat
  • Lightweight jacket or windbreaker
Your private safari will allow the flexibility of how you choose to spend your time. A daily decision to be made is whether to have breakfast and lunch at the tented camp or lodge or a picnic box in the bush.
While early morning game drives with the sunrise can be breathtaking (and highly encouraged), there will be likely occasions where you desire to stay in the bush and continue your adventure without returning to the lodging.
Picnic boxes for breakfast and lunch are prepared on a daily basis at each respective accommodation according to your itinerary. The typical breakfast box may consists of combination of bread, pastries, juice, a banana, apple, hardboiled-egg, bacon or sausages.
Your driver will also provide ‘French-press’ coffee to get your morning started. The typical lunch boxes consists of various items such as a piece of chicken, bread, sandwiches, banana, apple, juice, muffin and chocolate. If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know and we will plan accordingly.
You will experience bumpy roads when traveling throughout the region and during game drives. This may pose a problem for some individuals with back problems.
Please inform us in advance and we can provide additional back pillows for extra comfort. While our vehicles are customised and equipped for rough roads, we still recommend our guests to always fasten their seat belts at all times, and hold on when standing on their seat to enjoy the view through the popped up roof.
Please also make sure that your cameras and other electronic equipment are safely stored at all times in case of any damages due to bumpy roads.
