Wildlife Safari day trip

Wildlife Safari Day trip, For those arriving into Tanzania from any time zones that are several hours ahead or behind, or from anywhere that requires several plane changes, an intelligent strategy is to allow a day or two’s leisure in Moshi/Arusha prior to your climb. The reasons for this are:

  • Around 1 in 7 people have their luggage delayed. Most delayed luggage arrives 24 hours after it’s supposed to. (Delays are most usually caused by short intervals between connecting flights).
  • Prolonged airline travel tends to dehydrate and tire people. This adversely affects the body’s ability to acclimatize. Having a day at leisure allows dehydration and revitalization.
  • A day getting used to Moshi/Arusha’s elevation (around 800, 1,450m) and the dry air, helps with adaptation to Kilimanjaro.
  • Those who do not have time to go on safari after their climb often appreciate the opportunity to see a little of the local (non-alpine) environment and culture.

Wildlife Safari Day trip, From Moshi there are four options for safari destinations that can be visited as a one day trip. They are: Arusha National Park, Manyara NP, Tarangire NP  and Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Departure is in the early morning, how early depends on which destination you choose. You will be picked up at your hotel and driven to the site and will immediately go on a game drive. A box lunch will be provided and game viewing will continue until mid afternoon when you will start your journey back to Moshi.
