  • Day 1: Kilimanjaro Airport – Arusha Town

    Whatever your arrival time at Kilimanjaro International Airport, your driver guide from our office will be there waiting for you with a warm welcoming smile, relax in your comfortable vehicle as he takes you t your hotel in Arusha. On your journey to the hotel, you will get a brief impression of this large brief impression of this large, bustling, commercial city. Depending on your arrival time you may either meet with your Safari expert today for briefing or tomorrow before you start your Safari.

  • Day 2: Arusha – Northern Serengeti

    We start our journey with a short drive to Arusha airport, followed by a 3-hours flight to the Kogatende Airstrip in the Northern Serengeti.The changing landscapes of Northern Serengeti and the wildlife surprises it will almost certainly provide. There are no guarantees, but a rhino sighting cannot be ruled out! We are now following in the footsteps of the Great Migration, great herds of thousands of zebra and wildebeest getting ready to cross the Mara into Kenya, and back again. On a daily basis, crossings cannot be guaranteed, but our driver guides know the most likely places to witness them, one of Nature’s most awe-inspiring sights. Patience is required! And if you’re not lucky enough to witness a crossing, there’s always tomorrow; and in Northern Serengeti, plenty more to see today, After today's take advantage of the nightly campfires or enjoy a tasty sundowner while you reflect on your trip. The catering team can adapt to guests’ special dietary requirements.

  • Day 3: Full Day Game Drive Northern Serengeti

    If you’re lucky today, perhaps a rare, black rhino might cross your path…but even if not, we might witness a river crossing as wildebeest seek out the greener grasses on the other side. After your breakfast, you will embark with your driver-guide on a full-day game drive, looking out for elephant and buffalo, eland and gazelle. Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to spot something really special: perhaps a cheetah, or even a rare black rhino, of which a small population are resident here.After a full and exciting day of wildlife-spotting in the Northern Serengeti, we will return you to your Northern Serengeti accommodation for dinner and your second night's stay.

  • Day 4: Northern Serengeti - Central Serengeti

    After breakfast, and a morning game-drive in the north, we set off for our next destination, the Central Serengeti, a journey of around 115km with an expected time of around 5 hours. There will be plenty to see on the way. On arrival, we take lunch and have an afternoon game drive.As we reach the Central Serengeti, you will soon realize why this is often known as the ‘wildlife hub’ of the Serengeti. There are animals everywhere, graceful, quirky, dangerous. Safe inside your vehicle, you will see them all here. Your driver-guide will find you a highlight. After your game drive Finally, you will go to your chosen accommodation for relaxation and your evening meal.

  • Day 5: Full Day Game Drive Central Serengeti

    Today, we set off from our accommodation in central Serengeti. Wildlife is abundant: sometimes you may think it has come to find you, rather than the other way round. Today’s highlight is unknown as the animals don’t publish their schedule and what we see also depends on the season, but this area is where bushland meets grassland, a favorite spot for big cats looking for prey. Cheetah, leopard and lions are all possibilities today. Today you will have a chance to enjoy the varied landscapes of the central Serengeti. The Seronera River weaves its way through this area, providing waters for all species of wildlife. You may also see the distinctive rocky outcrops, the famous kopjes which characterized the Serengeti landscape.Lunch will be served at the picnic site with an unforgettable experience enjoyed in the middle of the bush.

  • Day 6: Central Serengeti – Ngorongoro

    Today our adventure takes us out of the Serengeti National Park and leads us to another of Tanzania’s true wonders, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. With its wildlife-filled crater, Ngorongoro may be difficult to pronounce, but with its wildlife-filled volcanic crater it is easy to admire. Unsurprisingly, this is yet another of our country’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. After a morning game drive and lunch, this afternoon we will head south-east towards Ngorongoro, a distance of 145km which will take us around 3 ½ hours. After the long drive you will be taken to your accommodation for Dinner and Overnight

  • Day 7: Ngorongoro Crater – Kilimanjaro International Airport

    After our morning visit to the incomparable crater – see below - and then lunch, we will have a 4-hour journey, covering the 250km back to Kilimanjaro International Airport. From our accommodation, we set off after breakfast, a 6am departure to reach the rim and then descend into the vast crater itself. At one side there’s the Lerai Forest, classic mountain forest landscape with almost tropical characteristics. This is good elephant country, so keep your eyes peeled. By the side of the nearby swampland is what is sometimes called the ‘elephant graveyard’ as the mighty male tuskers at the end of their lives come to chew on the soft, swampland grasses once their teeth have failed them. The crater has a population of around 120 lions, with well-defined territories; 15,000 wildebeest, 9,000 zebra, 400 hyenas, and around 50 black rhino. Many wildebeest and other herd animals are resident, benefiting from the many sources of year-round waters and are boosted by some migrators in season. Buffalo, Thomson’s gazelle and eland are also present in numbers. Hippos can be found in pools and swampland and highland birdlife is colourful and plentiful around the waters. Flamingos can often be seen in Lake Magadi, which occupies part of the crater floor.

Great Safari Experience with Nyange Adventures. Highly Recommend! The whole experience was amazing. My second time with Nyange Adventures doing the Tarangine and Ngorongoro national parks Safaris. Picked up at Kili Airport and we drove to the first National Park. Spend the night at a beautiful resort with a great diner and the next morning went to Ngorongoro National park, which really is an extraordinary once in a lifetime experience. The tour company is very professional, plan according to your wishes and take good care of you throughout your stay with them. They go the extra mile to show you all the beautiful animals and share their knowledge with you. Even the lunchboxes were great! We had a wonderful time. Many thanks to our driver, Alan, and the whole Nyange Adventures team. I highly recommend.

Amazing skilled guides and very friendly. Perfect safari experience! My mother and I travelled with Ian as our guide and Godfrey joined the team as amazing cook. Ian went above and beyond to give us the best experience, has shared so much knowledge on wildlife, has respect for nature and was simply the best guide we ever had. He and Godfrey were helpful, very friendly and great company. We laughed a lot and we couldn't wish a better team to have this incredible experience with! Thank you guys! Also the owner, Praise, was very helpful with organising the covid test. All went smooth. Totally recommend this company.

wonderful team and client oriented organisation We are very happy with the client oriented services of Nyange. They are flexible and provide a lot of information before the hike. In case of problems they solve them. We had a wonderfull team and especially the cook Nikaas and waiter Samual. The team managed to get the best places for the tents at the camps. They did a wonderful job getting us on the summit.

Tansania Safari Die Safari war ein ganz besonderes Erlebnis! Wir waren 5 Tage in Serengeti, Ngorongoro und Tarangire zusammen mit unserem Guide und unserem Koch. Die Campsites waren absolut ausreichend mit akzeptablen Sanitäranlagen. Wir mussten uns um nichts kümmern. Alles wurde uns organisiert und geplant. Wir durften nur geniessen. Leckeres Frühstück, Mittag- und Abendessen mit frischem und mehr als ausreichendem Essen und Trinken wurde uns immer zur Verfügung gestellt, sodass wir nie hungrig sein mussten. Unser Guide hat uns die ganze Reise begleitet, uns an alle Hotspots gebracht und sich sehr bemüht uns alles zu zeigen. Manchmal hätten wir uns mehr organisatorische Infos und etwas weniger Aufmerksamkeit seinerseits für sein Handy gewünscht. Man merkt jedoch, dass er sehr viel Wissen hat, alle Fragen jederzeit beantworten kann und er definitiv seine Arbeit gerne macht. Das Motto von Nyange Adventures „Come as a client-Leave as a friend“ ist wirklich sehr passend! Wir könnten Nyange Adventures nur empfehlen und wünschen jedem eine so tolle Erfahrung, wie wir sie machen durften.

Super safari! 4 dagen lang hebben wij een safari gehad die we nooit meer zullen vergeten. Samen met gids Roger van Nyange Adventures bezochten wij Tarangire, Ngorongoro en Serengeti. We genoten van de prachtige omgeving en wildlife. Roger wist ons allerlei nieuwe dingen te vertellen, beschikt over veel kennis en is erg enthousiast. De communicatie gedurende onze trip was perfect en we krijgen elke dag een duidelijke briefing van wat ons te wachten staat. Al met al enorm genoten, een aanrader.

Awesome hike with super professionell guides We did the 6 day Marangu Route and it was a blast. Freddy and Benny were our guides and an absolut blessing. They instructed us carefully, explained a lot about the nature, the animals, the mountain and the route itself. We felt very well guided all the time. The provided food, drinks and equipment was good and well suited for the hike.The tour itself can be mentally and physically exausting but the gudies and the whole team (guides, porters, cook, waiter) took care of us and supported us.

Hands down best experience I have had traveling abroad! Part 1- Booking and Safari! Booking was a breeze with Nyange Adventures! They were easy to coordinate with even from the US. They were responsive and answered all my questions. Provided packing lists, clear pricing breakdowns and clear communications. Kelvin was our go-to! Highly recommend! Day 1- Living (the manager) and Kelvin met us at the hotel to take our final payment, to discuss our trek, needs and expectations. I asked for guides with a sense of humor and knowledge to answer a gazillion questions. Boy, did they deliver! Perfect matching for our needs! We met Alen, our guide and he was smiling ear to ear and welcoming! He was an outstanding guide. Alen's knowledge of animals, history, terrain, culture is unmatched. He has a great sense of humor and made our 4 day safari beyond our expectations. We saw 4 National Parks and a Conservation Area. The entire safari was extraordinary! Each day got better and better. We saw ALL the animals soooooo close! Life long memories were made! I highly recommend Nyange Adventures Safari! They handled all food,transport, and hotel arrangements. We just showed up for the food and adventure! We even had a picnic in the park surrounded by ZEBRAS! 🤩😍🥰Part 2- After our safari, we completed the 9 day Northern Route Kilimanjaro Summit trek! Our guides were Fredie and Florenece. Our crew was INCREDIBLE!!!! Again Nyange Adventures surpassed our expectations! Freddie was serious and quite. Very knowledgeable and was a great coach and pacer. Florence had a great sense of humor and answered my billion questions. Recommed asking for them as your guides. Remember to listen to their guidance, if you follow what they say, they will get you to the top! They were a great balanced team. It took a crew of 11 people to get us to the top! Oscar was our stomach engineer aka chef. He worked miracles. The food was delicious! I was amazed each meal at the delicious taste, quality, and quantity of food! Mussa was our camp manager. He ensured our tents, bags, sleep mats and entire camp were set up each day before we arrived. Big Freddie ensured the portable toilets were ready, clean, and working. Jamoo was our amazing waiter. He always had a smile, answered our questions and made sure we had water and snacks for our trek. Our porters included: Saidi, Simba, Athuman, Godlove, Lukule, Denis and Yohana! Each were kind, smiling, positive and soooooo strong and fast!! An incredible crew! This amazing crew worked so well together and made a positively delightful team! After our trek, we were invited to a tour of the farm, where all our food during the trek was organically grown. They held a bon fire, with amazing food and live music. Then they presented us with Kilimanjaro completion certificates and we had a dance party. The owner Praise, and his wife were amazing hosts, that were so welcoming and kind. Again, I cannot recommend Nyange Adventures enough for your safari and trekking Adventures! Best tour and trek I have ever taken. They have now set the bar high!
