7 days full of impressions, new landscapes and many exciting cultural insights. This is what this pre-organised budget safari has to offer. You will be introduced to the different tribes of Tanzania, see some wild elephant herds in Tarangire, have the opportunity to see rhinos and spend the night in the world-famous Serengeti.

If you would like to do more national parks or cultural activities after this week, we are at your disposal to personalise this trip as much as possible.
An extension of your stay in Tanzania on Zanzibar also appeals to an ideal opportunity to process your experiences and enjoy some peace and quiet and the beach.


A shuttle from the lodge is waiting at the airport with a sign (Karibu sana! - a warm welcome) at the exit. The transfer takes about 10 minutes - 1 hour. In good weather, you can relax by the pool and mentally prepare for the journey.

Day 2: Tarangire National Park

The guide from ONA SAFARI picks you up in the morning. The journey on your Budget Safari takes you past Mount Meru, through Arusha and many other small villages until you reach the gate of Tarangire National Park. This Park offers a beautiful, wide panorama with open acacia forests, huge baobab trees and large grass savannahs, through which the Tarangire River meanders. In addition to herds of elephants, some of which number more than 300 animals, the park is home to around 100 species of mammals. These include antelopes, zebras, buffaloes, baboons and giraffes. Overnight stay in a luxury tent.

After breakfast, we head to Mto wa Mbu to spend the day in the colourful little town and immerse ourselves in small-town African life. Mto wa Mbu is so interesting because it is a mix of almost all the peoples and tribes living in Tanzania. Almost 120 of them! You won't find anything like this anywhere else on the continent. In the morning, you can explore the town on foot or by bike. For lunch, we would like to invite you to a private traditional Tanzanian meal. This will take place in the garden of "Mama Rose". You may, but do not have to, eat with your hands.
For hobby cooks there is the possibility to buy the ingredients for lunch with the cook at the market and then cook the meal together.

ALTERNATIVE EXTRA: If you wish, we can visit a school during the day on weekdays. This gives you an insight into the everyday life of "normal" children at a public school.

Day 4: Serengeti

The approximately two to three-hour drive over the crater rim of the Ngorongoro Crater leads into the Serengeti. At the viewpoints you can enjoy the unique landscape of the former volcano before descending on the other side into the Serengeti, probably the most famous savannah in the world. Once you have passed the gate on the way to Naabi Hill Gate, you quickly realise where the Serengeti got its name from. It is derived from the Maasai word "Siringitu" and means "endless land". The route to the accommodation consists of game drives and pure nature.

Day 5: Serengeti Safari

There are no prescribed for routes in the Serengeti. Many hidden can be found, where animals and spectacles are able to see. Special discoveries are communicated by radio so that you are unlikely to "miss" anything in the vicinity. The "Great Migration", with around 1.5 million wildebeest and zebras, is rightly considered one of the great wonders of nature! Lunch is usually eaten in the form of a lunchbox at one of the picnic areas or in the car while observing animals.

Day 6: Ngorongoro Crater

The route from the Serengeti Safari back to the Crater ( approx. 200km) takes about 4 hours, depending on the duration of the stops for game viewing and short breaks. The first stop is a scenic game drive from the Serengeti towards the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Several million years ago, a mountain rose up here, which geologists estimate to be higher than Mount Kilimanjaro. Tectonic movements caused the mountain to collapse, creating a habitat that is unique in the world. The interior of the crater, which is often referred to as the 8th wonder of the world, covers an area of over 260 square kilometres. It is hard to imagine that there is room for almost 30,000 animals in one crater. Due to the favourable conditions and the difficult escape from the crater, there is hardly any migration. As the crater is rather small in comparison to other parks, there is a chance of encountering one of the 20 or so local black rhinos here. After the game drive, we continue to our accommodation.

Day 7: Back home of Budget Safari

On the approximately two-hour drive on very well-maintained roads, you pass through various small villages and see lively activity everywhere before you reach the relatively small airport in Arusha.


As you are already in Tanzania anyway and are definitely ready to relax after so many impressions on the 7 days Budget Safari Package, a break in Zanzibar would certainly be a good idea. We offer a variety of accommodation, resorts and activities. Tell us what you would like and we will make you a personalised offer wherever possible.
