ARUSHA, Tanzania (PRWEB) November 11, 2020
Travelers looking to explore the vast wilds of Tanzania, where the only things not abiding by new social distancing norms are the millions of migrating wildebeests, can take advantage of up to 44% savings on Nomad Tanzania’s World Heritage Safari. Immersed in the country’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the 8-night safari traverses the Ngorongoro Highlands before heading to the southern plains of the Serengeti ecosystem. Accompanied by a highly trained naturalist guide in an exclusive-use safari vehicle, couples, families and groups of friends alike can partake in game drives, walking safaris, picnics and sundowners in the bush, visits with Maasai tribespeople, and more. In addition to the wildebeest, rich resident wildlife to be spotted includes The Big Five as well as giraffe, zebra, hyena, cheetah and an impressive diversity of birdlife.
Nomad’s World Heritage Safari starts at $5,459 per person. Black Friday promotional rates must be booked by December 4th 2020 for travel between December 21, 2020 and March 15, 2021. For reservations, visit https://www.nomad-tanzania.com/safaris/offers.
On arrival to Kilimanjaro International Airport, transportation is provided to Rivertrees Country Inn in the foothills of Mt Meru, with a majestic view of the great Kilimanjaro, for an overnight stay.
The following day, travelers will set off with their private Nomad guide for the Ngorongoro Highlands. At 7,284 feet above sea level, it is here that Nomad’s Entamanu Ngorongoro showcases unmatched vistas of both the Crater floor sunrises and Serengeti sunsets. Accommodations for three nights are in one of seven canvas bungalows, characterized by cozy nooks swathed in sheepskin and en-suite bathroom. Uniquely off the beaten track on the wild side of the iconic Ngorongoro Crater rim, the camp offers an unspoiled, unparalleled Crater wildlife experience and authentic insight into the land and culture that surrounds it. Activities here include game drives into the Ngorongoro Crater, guided walks along the Crater rim via ancient Maasai cattle trails carved through the umbrella acacia, bush picnics and sundowners, and genuine experiences of the Maasai culture that forge new friendships and impart their way of life. Wildlife is ample in Ngorongoro from the famous Big Five to impressive flocks of flamingos, and everything in between.
Then it’s on to Serengeti Safari Camp, a seasonal mobile camp whose location is carefully selected to be within striking distance of the herds (nature allowing of course) but always tucked away in Nomad’s own corners of hidden wilderness. The stylishly simple and supremely comfortable tents of this nomadic camp are moved every couple of months to be in the best possible location to view the Great Wildebeest Migration. Enroute travelers will visit Olduvai Gorge, a site that holds the earliest evidence of the existence of human ancestors in the form of hundreds of fossilized bones and stone tools in the area dating back millions of years. Once at Serengeti Safari Camp, accommodations are in one of six large walk-in Meru tents. An en-suite bathroom offers eco-flush toilets and safari-style bucket showers. The main dining tent features a nearby firepit for sundowners, library and bar. December - March sees the herds gather on the short grass plains in Southern Serengeti to have their calves, where life begins for half a million wildebeest. Additionally, areas of the Serengeti are home to rich resident wildlife including giraffe, zebra, impala, topi, hartebeest; and predators such as lion, cheetah, hyena, leopard, and sometimes wild dog. There is a plethora of fascinating small mammals such as mongooses and bat eared foxes as well as a staggering array of beautiful birds. The scenery is varied; wooded thickets suddenly open up to great rolling plains studded with lone trees or rocky outcrops, or dizzying expanses of savannah stretching to the horizon.
To wind up the trip, Nomad includes transportation to Ndutu, the nearest airstrip, and a flight back to Kilimanjaro International Airport for international departure.
