Itinerary in detail

Every Jacada trip is tailored to your personal preferences and interests. Below you’ll find a sample itinerary to inspire your own custom-designed journey.

Days 1–2

Welcome to Arusha

Arguably the safari capital of East Africa, Arusha is a bustling city in northern Tanzania and the main hub for those who are going to be embarking on a safari in this extensively game rich country. With a little time to spare before your safari begins tomorrow, you could visit the Museum of Natural History which offers insight into the country’s history, geography, flora and fauna and can be quite an interesting experience for the whole family. The Cultural Centre has a variety of typically traditional carvings, gemstones and artefacts that help to summarise the past and present lives of over 120 Tanzanian tribes and is paired well the Maasai Market where you can get some wonderful souvenirs.

Days 2–6

Stunning Serengeti

The Serengeti is one of the world’s most famous national parks. The Great Migration of over 1.5 million wildebeest and 250,000 zebra who follow the grass to and from the neighbouring Maasai Mara in Kenya, passes through the region annually, but there is an incredible variety of wildlife resident year-round. Let your expert guides lead you through the natural wonders of the Serengeti on exciting bush walks, enjoy the mesmerising African sky with a spot of star gazing and experience the pristine natural atmosphere at the break of dawn on an exciting morning game drive.

Explore on foot

Into the wild

Bush walk

With your guide and tracker you’ll head out on foot on a walking safari. This is a unique opportunity to climb down from your safari vehicle and appreciate your surroundings. On foot you are a participant in the world of wildlife rather than a spectator, making this a thrilling and unbeatable safari experience.

Game drives

Enter the habitats of magnificent wild animals. Game drives allow you to enjoy nature while still being comfortable and camera-ready. These drives provide you with endless opportunities to learn about nature in its purest form, with expert guides on hand to share their knowledge with you.

Days 6–8

Remote Ruaha

For the final leg of your Tanzanian mobile safari experience, head to the wild and remote Ruaha National Park. It is the largest national park in Tanzania and East Africa, but has far fewer visitors than others on this part of the continent, allowing for a more exclusive safari experience. Home to an abundance of varied dramatic landscapes, this remote and mighty wilderness brims with vast open plains, rolling hills filled with baobabs and the park’s lifeline, the Great Ruaha River.

After dark
