10 days Safari Mkomazi + Usambara Mountains + Saadani with beach relaxation

This is a perfect safari combination to see the eastern parks of Tanzania. And you can end the safari with some ralaxation on the beach.

Mkomazi national park is a truly spectacular wilderness and is located on the southern tip of the Sahel. It provides a home for herds of elephants, oryx and zebras. The Usambara mountains are one of the undiscovered places in Tanzania. This is what makes this place a true paradise for nature and hiking lovers. And Saadani national park has a unique location because it is on the coast. It is the only national park where you can combine an adventure safari with a relaxing stay at beautiful white beaches with many palm trees.

This private safari offers you the flexibility to travel at your own pace, exactly the way you like it. You will have a private safari vehicle and guide. The hotels we selected for you during this safari are Silver class.

 

Day1: Arrival Kilimanjaro airport - Hotel

Day 2: Mkomazi national park

Today your 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 lion, leopard and cheetah. And with some luck you can also 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 3: 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’ll see sweeping hills, mountains, valleys, farmland, picturesque villages, colourful 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 1000 m 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 trees and their propagation. The “Growing Rock” tour starts from Soni where you walk to the top of the Kwamongo mountain, famous for its butterflies and enjoy views of Soni, Lushoto and the Handeni plains from the peak.

Today you sleep at Mambo View Point Eco Lodge.

Days 6-8: Saadani National Park

Saadani’s location is unique because it is the only national park on the coast of East Africa and you can combine a safari with a relaxing stay at its beautiful white beaches. It is allowing you to observe wildlife in a unique environment and offers a variety of landscapes: mangroves, large coral reefs, sea and beach with many palm trees, savannah and cotton fields.

Upon your arrival on day 6 you will 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, wildebeests, dik-diks as well as baboons, vervet and blue monkeys and colobus. African bush elephants, lions and leopards are a bit more shy 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 prides are inhabitants, together with leopards, spotted hyenas and black-backed jackals.

Days 7 and 8 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 and beautiful mangrove kingfisher and lesser flamingos. Or make a  walking safari with an armed ranger for a change. Off the coast is a sand bank which you can visit by boat to go snorkeling, swimming or just to relax and enjoy the tropical environment!
