Overlanding is the only way to see East and Southern Africa! Dragoman have been leading the way in African overland expeditions since 1981, so take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading into the wilds, well away from the usual tourist trail. Unlike most trips between Nairobi and Victoria Falls, this journey gives you something that other trips miss - time to relax and to get off the beaten track. This journey will take you through some of the best wildlife areas in the world, such as the waving grasslands of the Maasai Mara, the stunning plains of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, and the lesser-known gem of South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. We'll also head off on an incredible canoeing trip down the Zambezi Valley, a wonderful experience being surrounded by elephants and camping on river islands away from all the tourists! We also build in plenty of relaxation time on the beautiful beaches of Lake Malawi, and of course the incredible white sands of the Indian Ocean and Zanzibar! Finishing at the fantastic town of Victoria Falls, which boasts Africa's mightiest waterfalls and some adrenaline-fuelled optional outdoor activities, this trip is an incredible experience and the best way to see the heart of Africa - join us for this trip, and you're guaranteed to be very glad that you chose our comprehensive month-long itinerary through the region rather than the rushed 20 or 22 day itineraries offered by other operators!

  • Day 4 Tarangire National Park

    Today we will be met by our fleet of 6-person 4x4 jeeps - we will load the jeeps with our camping and personal gear, and then head out for our 4-day excursion to the Tarangire National Park, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, leaving our truck behind. We will also be leaving our large bags behind (where they will be stored in a secure location), and advise you to bring along a smaller daypack for your personal gear for this trip that will need to be packed soon after the group meeting before we set off. You should pack clothing for 4 days (including a warm jumper or fleece and long trousers), a waterproof jacket, toiletries (including sun screen and insect repellent), your camera and charger, a small towel, a head torch, a water bottle, books and personal snacks, etc. We will have safety talk with our safari guides and then on to a full day drive within Tarangire National Park. You should have many oportunities for photographs so remember your cameras! Once we make it into our camp site for the evening will will have our evening meal before the opportunity for a night game drive to Lake Manyara.

  • Day 5 to 6 Serengeti National Park

    Today we have an optional bike ride or bush walk along the shore of Lake Manyara. Then we will experience the view from the birds perspective with a tree top walkway followed by a traditional Swahili buffet for lunch.  After lunch we will make our way down into the plains of the Serengeti. We will take an evening game drive around the savanna before heading to our campsite - the area is one of the world's premier spot for wildlife viewing and we hope to able to find elephants, lions, leopards, giraffe and other big game during our time here! Tonight we will stay at a campsite within the Serengeti National Park. The camp where we stay is very basic (with showers and flush toilets, but no other facilities) but is located right in the middle of the plains, surrounded by animals and their nocturnal noises! Your leader will outline the basic safety rules to be followed when camping in an unfenced location where wild animals are present. The next morning we will get up very early and we set off in our jeeps for an early morning game drive in the heart of the Serengeti plains. The early morning is the best time of day for wildlife viewing, as many of the animals are at their most active while it is still cool. There is an option this morning for to take a hot air balloon flight over the Serengeti instead of the game drive - demand is high for this activity, so this must be pre-booked at the time that you book your trip with Dragoman. We will return to our campsite for lunch, and then aim to exit the Serengeti early afternoon. We will head back through the conservation area to our next campsite, on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, where we will arrive in the early evening. Again, the campsite tonight is very basic and unfenced. It can often be quite cold on the crater rim so it is recommended that you take some warm clothes for this night.  

    Activities(Included)
    Head on an unforgettable safari in 4x4s into the Serengeti, Tarangire and Ngorongoro Crater National Reserves - three of the world's most incredible areas for wildlife spotting
