7 Days

Tour Overview

About the tour

Embark on an unforgettable 7-day adventure with ZAFS Tours, exploring the natural wonders of Tanzania’s most iconic wildlife destinations. Your safari journey begins with your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), where our friendly team will greet you and ensure a smooth transfer to your comfortable accommodation in Arusha. Enjoy a restful night, preparing for the thrilling days ahead.

Tarangire National Park, located in northern Tanzania, is known for its diverse wildlife and iconic baobab trees. The park is especially renowned for its large herds of elephants and is often called “The Elephant Playground.” Visitors can also spot lions, leopards, giraffes, and various antelope species. Tarangire River flows through the park, attracting a multitude of animals during the dry season.

Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Africa’s most spectacular natural wonders. The crater is a caldera formed by the collapse of a volcano, and it’s often referred to as the “Garden of Eden” due to its lush landscapes and high wildlife density. Visitors can see the Big Five (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros) along with numerous other species like hyenas, and hippos. Game drives into the crater provide an opportunity to witness this unique ecosystem up close.

Serengeti National Park is synonymous with the Great Migration, where millions of wildebeest and zebras traverse the vast plains in search of water and fresh grazing. It’s one of the most iconic safari destinations in Africa. Apart from the migration, Serengeti offers year-round wildlife viewing, including predators like lions, cheetahs, and leopards. Hot air balloon safaris are also popular here, providing a bird’s-eye view of the sprawling landscapes and herds below.

Central Serengeti (Seronera): Seronera plains in the central Serengeti is a year-round wildlife haven. It’s known for its resident big cats, including prides of lions and leopards. The area offers excellent game viewing opportunities with rolling plains and kopjes (rocky outcrops) that are favorite resting spots for lions.

North Serengeti (Kogatende): The northern section of the Serengeti, particularly Kogatende, is the best place to witness the Great Migration from July to early September. Thousands of wildebeest and zebras cross the Mara River, creating dramatic scenes of predation as crocodiles lurk in the waters. Game drives and guided tours offer front-row seats to this awe-inspiring spectacle.

Balloon Safari (Optional): A hot air balloon safari in the Serengeti is a magical way to experience the park’s vast landscapes and wildlife from above. It offers a serene and panoramic view of the savannah, with a chance to spot animals from the air. The experience usually includes a champagne breakfast upon landing, making it a luxurious adventure.

Highlights

  • See the 'Big Five' at the Ngorongoro Crater
  • Spot the elephants in large numbers at Tarangire River
  • In the right season, witness The Great Migration on the plains of Serengeti

Prodigious Team | Breathtaking Views I had planned to trek Kilimanjaro one month before my trip. Nothing to do with organisers but spot decision from my side, I would say, I was never disappointed or regret the last minute mind make up I did. It was a fantastically organised trek,, they had lot more flexibility and the hosts were amazing.. food throughout the trek was at its best. Kudos to the team.

Amazing ! Startling ! Overwhelming Support Team ! The summit to Kilimanjaro was no way possible for me unless until I was guided by John and team . Special kudos to these guys - the way they organized, the detailed briefing sessions, the incredible support staff, delicious food, the helpful porters. If it were not for Mariki - a member of John's team I believe I wouldn't have been able to summit the Uhuru peak. I would recommend ZAFS/John to anyone who is planning to summit Kilimanjaro. They really do ensure that you reach the heights. Not to forget that John & team made us enjoy the journey throughout !

Atop Kilimanjaro Uhuru peak We went for Kilimanjaro Summit in August 2023. 17 of us travelled to Kilimanjaro through India Hikes who are partners with ZAFS to organise end to end support for this exciting climb to the summit. The ZAFS team is such a wonderful bunch of people that they made this entire climb look so easy. The team is very knowledgeable about the entire terrain and guided us on how to go Pole-Pole, one step at a time so as not to get tired during the steep climb and long trekking route. The stay arrangements in tents, the lunch arrangements and the food throughout had been great. The entire team is so jovial, fun loving and helpful. They were always helping the team at every step and even carried the backpacks of few team members who were too tired on long days. Thank you John and thank you entire ZAFS team in making this trip so fun, safe and memorable for all of us. I would definitely recommend your team to many of my friends from India who wish to scale the Kilimanjaro peak.

Loved Our Guides! "Moo" and Juma, our driver and guide, respectively, were just great. So enthusiastic, informative, always on time and well-pressed! Our time in Zanzibar was only pleasant because of these two. Moo was an exceptionally good driver, courteous and safe, in very challenging conditions. Juma was caring and helped us arrange last-minute tour options. This is a first-rate tour agency!

Exhilarating experience climbing Mt Kili with ZAFS We engaged ZAFS about 6 months in advance while scouting for travel agencies. As we were really new to the region and never visited Tanzania, it was a bit of task to select the right tour company as you will find heaps of options with a range of offers and prices. ZAFS came not only recommended from friends and family but were thoroughly professional, patient and accomodating during our enquiries and throughout the trip. We took the 7 day Lemosho route to climb Mt Kili. The team provided by ZAFS were well trained, with excellent hospitality, surpassing our every expectation from meals, to setting up tents before we arrive at the next camp site, cruising through the difficult terrains making it look easy. From 3 course meal options to clean drinking water and clean toilets, being environmentally sustainable by providing us personal thrash bags to collect thrash on our way, some fantastic entertainment on our way with singing and dancing (optional but highly uplifting especially after a days climb). ZAFS trek leaders were exceptionally patient, understood every hikers strengths and weaknesses and ensured we met our end goal. They at times went out of their way to carry our day packs just to get through some rough terrain. They also help in recommending and reviewing your gear to make your climb seamless. Highly recommend ZAFS to help meet your bucket list in Tanzania.

Lemosho + safari ❤️ We booked a 2 week itinerary with ZAFS consisting of the 7 day Lemosho route and a 3 day safari. Huezeifa was our point of contact months before our trip and was patient to answer all of our questions. His advice was extremely valuable to pack all the essentials for our trip. The trip itself was fantastically organized, we had all the information in the right time and the ZAFS team was also available to us for any questions during the trip. The guides and the rest of the crew that ZAFS works with really knew their stuff, they were professional and a lot of fun to climb the mountain with. Their help and expertise was instrumental at getting us to the top of Africa 🙂.

My incredible experience with ZAFS TOURS One of the best professional tour operators. Highly recommended! Their service to their hospitality was absolutely top-notch. The Food was just superb despite the conditions on the mountain. As per our request they also arranged a surprise birthday party. Their guides and porters were very helpful, friendly and caring. Their moral support helped me alot during the entire trip especially during the summit. Their tents are very warm, clean, well maintained and comfortable. I really enjoyed this adventurous trip with them as they made it an incredible experience! Would definitely recommend ZAFS TOURS for anyone looking to conquer Roof of Africa (Mt Kilimanjaro)! Looking forward with more trips with them!
