Itinerary idea in detail

You will be picked up at the Kilimanjaro International Airport and transferred to the city of Moshi, at Key's hotel. You will meet your driver guide who will brief you on your upcoming safaris, then relax for the rest of the day.
  • Hotel is Bed & Breakfast basis.
  • Non game-viewing travel time: 1:40 hours
  • Distance: 110.33km
After breakfast, your driver/guide, will be ready at your hotel to pick you head into the Tarangire National Park for a game drive. The park has great landscapes including plains known as "Little Serengeti". The Tarangire River draws many animals to its river banks, especially during the dry season. Its natural vegetation mainly consists of Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp areas in the south. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. This African national park is also home to three rare species of animals – the greater kudu, the fringed-eared oryx, as well as a few Ashy starlings. The park also offers a large number of buffaloes, zebras, wildebeest, giraffes, lions, cheetahs, leopards, impalas, gazelles, warthogs, and wild dogs which are occasional seen. The park is also enriched with birds with more than 400 species present. During mid-day we will stop at a designated picnic site for lunch and continue with the game drive until the evening when we drive to the camp for dinner and overnight rest. Dinner and overnight at Tarangire Campsite.
  • Non game-viewing travel time: 4 hours
  • Distance: 242 km.
After breakfast, we exit Tarangire and head towards the Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high-lying farmland of Karatu and the across the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (but not through the crater this day). During the drive we will pause to enjoy a picnic style lunch then drrive into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park, with its endless plains rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to central Serengeti known as the Seronera. This is one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species. We arrive will enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti. Dinner and overnight rest will be inside of the Serengeti at one of its public campsites. Dinner and overnight at Tumbili Public Campsite 
These two days will be spent on a game drive in the Serengeti. The areas that you visit will depend upon where the migrating herds are (predators usually follow closely behind the trekking animals). During the short rainy season in November and December the herds move from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June they return up centra Serengeti, while in July to October they are in North Serengeti. The yearly trek is determined by the rainfalls and the location of the herds might vary from year to year but your guide will know where to find the animals and where to see them best. Apart from wildebeests and zebras you will also spot predators such as lions, leopards and cheetahs as well as all big fives. You will have enough time to venture the Serengeti park with its heart Seronera river or grumeti river depends on the location you are in. Dinner and overnight at Tumbili public campsite
  • Non game-viewing travel time: 2hours
  • Distance: 147 km, 91 miles
After breakfast we continue with game drive until lunch time. After lunch we head to Ngorongoro for overnight. On the way we can experience the Maasai traditional life and experience a little bit of these cultural people lives in the Ngorongoro conservations. Dinner and overnight at Simba Campsite
  • Non game-viewing travel time: 3hours
  • Distance:181.21 km.
After early breakfast we will descend over 600 meters into the crater for a game drive for a half day’s safari tour. Supported by a year-round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park, its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs, and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. This is only the pack that you can see easily black Rhino than any other park. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater and act as home for flamingos and hippos. Apart from animal, the park has most wonderful landscape and its very beautiful caldera park. We will have lunch in the picnic site.

Unable to attend, but they were great I was unable to attend due to an illness. They were in constant communication and contact with me throughout the refund process and I received my refund in a timely manner. They were very nice and great communicators throughout the process. I can’t wait to try and rebook in the future, as it looks incredible and I was so bummed I was unable to attend.
Great and reliable tour operator! What a fantastic experience we had! Everything was arranged to perfection. Our guide Erick is the best guide ever! He has a lot of humor, speaks good English and knows a lot about nature and animals. He does everything to see all the animals. The overnight stay was great. The people were very friendly and the food was really perfect! I can really recommend this reliable party if you are looking for a once in a lifetime safari! We had booked a two-day Selous safari from Zanzibar (Dutch couple).

Truly Amazing Experience 👏 we have just got back from such an amazing experience with this company!!!!from initial interaction with the team here it was seamless, the hotel to airport transfer was completely private along with the tour. The guide named 'Eric' was the best guide- nothing was a problem for him and made sure we got very close to the animals but always kept the animals feeling safe and not scared. his communication was outstanding,a really really nice man. the lodge which we stayed was also very comfortable and luxurious again all staff where very friendly.would highly recommend Smile with Us tours 5 start company Eric and Isack made the experience amazing!!

Nice Safari We had a 5 day trip from Dar es Salaam to Mikumi NP, Udzungwa Mountains NP, Nyerere NP and back to Dar es Salaam.Pros:+ All accommodations were superb, clean and really nice (didn't had much time to spend inside though) + Our driver and tour guide (Msese) was really good.++ we've seen much more animals than the others in the camps (elephant 🐘, giraffe 🦒, zebra 🦓, pumba, hyene, lion 🦁, hippo, chameleon, crocodile 🐊, ...) ++ we got a lot of information on the whole tour++ he really made us feel welcome++ he drove very good and safe++ we could always say stop when we wanted to stay longer at a place + the car (Toyota LandCruiser) was in good condition, clean and the seats are comfortable + the tour was very well organised and planned + they kept care of my gluten allergy, this was not a problem. Just make sure to tell the company in advance as well as the driver when leaving (I used the Celiac travel card in swahili) Con:- make sure that the driver knows the whole plan. For us he missed some parts of the tour and they arranged everything on short notice without any issues - bring your own binoculars, some animals are very shy (I guess also depends on the season and weather) - at one national park they build a big hydro dam, this already has a big impact on nature (has nothing to do with the tour itself) - not the cheapest option, but still much cheaper than the tours offered from the Golden Tulip Hotel in Dar es Salam
Unvergesslich und einmalig Wir haben eine von Anfang bis Ende gut durchgeplante und aufregende Safari erlebt. Alles war perfekt. Ein freundlicher und vor allem erfahrener Guide, der einem jede Frage beantworten konnte. Eine perfekte Unterkunft. Ein tolles Frühstück im Busch. Es war wundervoll und wir kommen aus dem schwärmen nicht mehr raus. Ein absolutes Muss für jeden der noch nie eine Safari gemacht hat.

Outstanding experience! I went on a solo safari trip with Smile With Us Tours in January 2023. The experience was super from the beginning to the end. Everything was very well organized to meet my wishes, and I felt so taken care of from the moment I was picked up from my hotel in Zanzibar. At arrival in Nyerere National Park (the plane landed while giraffes and other exotic animals were walking by the runway!), I was met by the most welcoming and genuine guide, Eric. He made sure I had many moments I will remember for life during my two days game drive with him. He put in all his effort to find the animals, we got up really close with them, and he was full of knowledge. I saw hippos, lions, zebras, elephants, African wild dogs, hyena, buffalos, crocodiles, giraffes, warthogs, baboons, black face monkey, impalas, waterbuck, wildebeest and more. I am so thankful for everything he did for me to give me the best experience possible. I also did a safari walk and a river safari where I got to see even more animals, birds and learned about animal tracks, herbs, plants and trees, and about surviving in the wilderness. My accommodation during my stay was at Selous Jimbiza Camp. Here I was met by a very welcoming staff. I was treated as a queen, the food was great, the crocodile and elephant bread the chef made were impressive, and I felt safe both day and night. I totally recommend Smile With Us Tours, and would love to go on a tour with them again!

Positive safari experience with Eli We were having a 3 day safari trip in Selous Game Reserve. From the start communication about everything was fast and efficient. On the first day we had the river boat safari, which was fun and we were lucky enough to see the elephants on the way back to our camp. On the second day we had a full day for a safari. Our guide was Eli and he was amazing, really knowledgable and funny, trying his best to show us as much as possible. We enjoyed every minute of it. My partner was not feeling so well and Eli was kind enough to check every now and then is she ok or needs anything. We would recommend this to everyone and if we ever go to a safari again would love to have Eli as a guide.
Brilliant I was quite nervous about booking through a local agent, having never been to TZ before but Jacob answered all our questions very promptly.Our guide (Allen) was very knowledgeable, very friendly and very helpful.Would definitely recommend!
Highly recommended! loved doing a private safari - great divers and guides. Loved the game drives and we also did the hike to the Sanje waterfall. They are intense days with early starts and after the 5 days it was perfect that we had some time planned at the beach. Flying out of Selous to Zanzibar was a perfect ending. Highly recommend the company - they were great to deal with and quick to respond.
