Day 1: Mkomazi national park

Today your drive guide picks you up at your hotel in Moshi and you drive to Mkomazi national park. Its landscape is a classic arid area, you find old baobab trees, rocky hills, savannah forests with umbrella acacias, and flat grassland valleys.

Mkomazi’s wildlife is thinly populated and also quite skittish. You can spot giraffes, antelopes, small kudu, impala, and Grant gazelles. They share the park with elephants, buffalo, and numerous predators, including lions, leopards, and cheetah. And with some luck, you can spot other animals like dik-diks, zebras, oryx, wildebeests, eland, and Topi on a game drive.

The highlight is a heavily protected, fenced area in the park: the Mkomazi Rhino Sanctuary! The rhinos here make up nearly 30% of the total black rhinoceros population in Tanzania. There is no better way to see them!

Day 2: Usambara mountains –West

Usambara is a beautiful mountain range with grassy plains and virgin tropical rainforest. The lush green mountains have a cool climate that is ideal for walks and hikes. But one of the best reasons to hike the Usambara mountains is the amazing view. You will see sweeping hills, mountains, valleys, farmland, picturesque villages, colorful markets, and plantations everywhere you go.

You will discover the beautiful diversity of this vast area with your guide. You can hike up the Irente viewpoint to get a panoramic view of Mazinde Village almost 1000m below and the vast Maasai plains beyond. Or walk through the fertile farmlands of Jaegertal to a fruit tree nursery and learn more about the different types of fruit tree and their propagation. The “Growing Rock” tour starts from Soni where you walk to the top of the Kwamongo mountain, famous for its butterflies enjoying views of Soni, Lushoto, and the Handeni plains from the peak.

Up on your arrival on day 6 you will a make a game drive through the park. Wildlife in Saadani national park includes four of the “Big Five”. Although it is very hard to spot them because the numbers are low and the animals are usually hiding well. But you can also find Maasai giraffes, waterbucks, wildebeest, dik-diks as well as baboons, velvet and blue monkeys, and colobus. African bush elephants, lions, and leopards are a bit shyer here. But with a bit of luck, you might spot them too! We spot herds of up to 30 elephants with increased frequency. And several lion pride are inhabitants, together with leopards, spotted hyenas, and black-backed jackals.

Days 5 and 6 are at your leisure and you can choose from many activities. It is possible to go on a boat safari in Saadani national park to see hippos, huge crocodiles, beautiful mangrove kingfishers, and lesser flamingos.
