12 Night Tanzania Rift Valley Adventure with Hiking

On this itinerary you can enjoy one of the most dramatic hikes in East Africa – as well as the amazing scenery there is also the chance to see the changing lives of the Maasai in both Ngorongoro and Natron.

After a night in Arusha, your adventure starts with 2 nights at Lake Natron Camp where you can see flamingos on Lake Natron, visit the hominid footprints, delve deep into the Ngare Sero Gorge, or just relaxing in camp and enjoy the natural plunge pools.

You will then head to the bottom of the Rift Valley to start your trek up to Leonotis Camp, on the edge of the Gregorian Rift with stunningly beautiful views throughout. After a magical night at Leonotis Camp, camping underneath the stars and golden acacia trees, you trek up to the Empakai Crater in the Ngorongoro highlands, and depending on arrival time can include a descent into Empakai.

For the very active you can also climb Ol Doinyo Lengai (at an extra cost).

The next stop is the stunning Ngorongoro Crater where you will enjoy two nights on the rim of the crater and a full day safari, before heading to the Serengeti to explore one of the best safari destinations in Africa!  Depending on the time of year you plan to visit, you might find yourself in the northern Serengeti watching the migration or the southern ecosystems in Ndutu during the calving season, or western corridor during June.  Or you may prefer to give the migration a miss enjoy some game viewing in quieter areas of the Serengeti – please ask!
