A taste of the large national parks in Tanzania. You are able to visit the Hadza and Watingdiga tribesmen ( the 'clicker' bushmen) around Lake Eyasi where the Datoga also reside. A great opportunity to see how the nomadic tribes live and hunt. Plenty of wildlife to see in any season and wonderful memories to capture.

DAY 4

Tarangire to Lake Eyasi

Lake Eyasi After breakfast depart your lodge and drive to Lake Eyasi. It is only a 2-hour drive to the Mangola village or Lake Eyasi. Eyasi is a mildly alkaline lake stretching for about 50 km (31 miles) to the southwest. To the northeast, as far as your eyes can see, the horizon is dominated by the impressive Crater Highlands. To the north the plains of the Serengeti. This area is inhabited by small groups of bushmen - the Hadza and Watindiga, who live in groups hunting with bows and arrows and gathering roots, tubers and wild fruits; much as humankind lived in the Stone Age. Over 100 years ago, when the stronger Masai tribes moved into the Ngorongoro and Serengeti, the tribes made the area around Lake Eyasi their home. Another interesting tribe in the area is the Datoga. These are the last remaining tribes of bushmen in East Africa. You will get to visit bushmen homes and hunt with them. Dinner and overnight at Lake Eyasi Safari Lodge (www.lakeeyasisafarilodge.com/) Read more

Serengeti is the largest and most famous park in Tanzania, known worldwide for its endless plains, wildebeest-migration, herds of lions and other predators like hyenas, cheetahs and leopards. Crocodiles and hippos can be found in the river, as well as giraffes, antelopes, and gazelles on the open plains. Dinner and overnight in the heart of Serengeti.

The two of us did a 5 day/4 night safari tour with African Ambition Tours. The trip was unforgettable. The landscape and animals were beautiful, but what put the trip over the top was our guide, Dismiss. He was professional and attentive to our every need. He helped us set up the tents at night and made sure we were comfortable and well fed throughout the trip. Read more

Jake , United States

We were lucky enough to secure a 5 day safari with Dismas from African Ambition Tours. Hands down, this was one of the best experiences in my life! We were picked up promptly in Arusha and spent our time in Tarangire, Serengeti, and the Ngorongoro Crater parks. We were able to see the Big 5 and more. Even got to see a mother cheetah with her 4 cubs. Dismas was extremely helpful at all times. He made sure everything was taken care of - the food, the lodging, the transportation. Our requests were always heard, and he went out of his way to make it happen. He also had a great eye when it came to spotting animals and understanding the terrain, which was a very important trait. A true professional. Highly recommend using this company for any group size, ages young to old! Read more
