Activities & Transportation

Day by Day

  • Arrival (See Getting There for more details)

    ➔ You'll be collected from the airport.
    ➔ Accommodation before the tour starts can be arranged for an extra cost.

  • Day 1 - Arrival in Arusha

    Welcome to the start of your safari and welcome to Tanzania! You've chosen a fantastic place for your safari journey and we'll get you started with an introductory briefing before we head out to begin the trip you've been dreaming of.
    You won’t find any more beautiful corner of the Rift Valley than Arusha National Park. Yes, you’ll see wildlife – giraffe, zebra and buffalo are present and the birdlife is wonderfully varied. But it’s the scenery here that most travelers remember, from the near-perfect volcanic cone that crowns the summit of Mt Meru to the Ngurdoto Crater, which often goes by the name of ‘Little Ngorongoro’. And by focusing on the scenery rather than the animals, your visit to Arusha National Park nicely complements the other parks of Tanzania’s northern safari circuit.
    Walking safari, Arusha National Park
    Come with us on a walking safari, where you'll enjoy the thrill of stepping out into the African wild with an experienced guide. Although you won't be watching the animals from a vehicle, it's still very safe, and it's a priceless opportunity to feel really connected to the animals you'll see and the landscapes you'll explore in a whole new way

    Main Destination: Arusha (City)
    Accommodation: Arusha Planet Lodge
    Meals & Drinks: Meals at your own expense.  Drinks not included.

  • Day 2 - Tarangire National Park

    We think you’ll be impressed with Tarangire National Park. Most visitors love the distinct shapes of the baobab trees silhouetted against the sky that make this place feel like a fairy-tale African landscape. Or visitors remember the elephants that roam in family bands everywhere throughout the park. If you’re lucky, you’ll also encounter the big cats – lions especially, but also cheetahs and leopards – that are always a possibility here. And there’s a fair degree of certainty that you will tick wildebeest, giraffe, hippo, buffalo and zebra off your wildlife-viewing list.
    Arusha
    It’s a world away from wildlife and wild lands, but Arusha is an essential part of the northern Tanzanian safari, with plenty of scenes of local life to enjoy.

    Main Destination: Serengeti National Park
    Accommodation:  Marera Valley Lodge
    Meals & Drinks:  All meals included. All drinks (Except for spirits/liquor).

  • Day 3 - 4 Serengeti National Park

    You’ll never forget the time you spend in the Serengeti. Perhaps it will be the sightings of leopard and cheetah as they show their skills as feared hunters of the plains and valleys. Or that unforgettable moment when an elephant family feeds alongside your vehicle, so close you could almost reach out and touch them. Or the first time you hear a lion roar. Then there are the herds of buffalo, zebra or wildebeest so large that they move as one across your horizon, like a river. All of these experiences are possible in the Serengeti, one of the most beautiful parks in Africa.

    Main Destination: Serengeti National Park
    Accommodation:  Embalakai Camp
    Meals & Drinks:  All meals included. All drinks (Except for spirits/liquor).

  • Day 5 - Ngorongoro Crater

    You’ll learn why magical Ngorongoro is unlike anywhere else in Africa. Cloud forests encircle the crater rim, and the view out across the caldera of this former volcano – quite apart from the altitude – will leave you gasping for air. Your drive down a steep trail carries you onto the crater floor where a unique wildlife offering is added to the sheer beauty of the experience. You’ll share the sunken ecosystem of the crater floor with hyenas, lions, elephants, black rhinos and hippos. An ecosystem that has formed in the crater in the millennia since the volcano wrought its terrible fury upon the land. It could just be one of your best safari days ever.

    Main Destination: Ngorongoro Crater Park
    Accommodation: Marera Valley Lodge
    Meals & Drinks:  All meals included. All drinks (Except for spirits/liquor).

  • Day 6 - Lake Manyara National Park

    Lake Manyara is one of the most underestimated national parks in Tanzania’s northern safari circuit. Everything you’ll see here is on a different scale, at once compact (this is one of the narrowest parks in Africa) and epic (the Rift Valley escarpment towers over Lake Manyara’s western boundary). You’ll see plenty of baboons and elephants in the park’s thick evergreen forest, and watch for the tree-climbing lions that have become famous throughout Africa. Thanks to the proximity of lake, forest and rock walls, the birdlife will also tease out your inner birder – don’t forget your binoculars.

    Main Destination: Lake Manyara National Park
    Accommodation: Airport Planet Lodge
    Meals & Drinks:  All meals included. All drinks (Except for spirits/liquor).

  • Day 7 - Kigali

    Sprawling across the steep slopes that earned Rwanda the nickname Land of 1000 Hills, Kigali is a neat, clean and rapidly growing city situated at the hub of the national road network. Explore the compact city center for a fascinating introduction to the bustle of contemporary urban Africa, or head out to leafy suburbs dotted with a cosmopolitan choice of garden restaurants.

    Main Destination: Zanzibar
    Accommodation:  Heaven Boutique Hotel
    Meals & Drinks: All meals included

  • Day 8-9 Volcanoes National Park

    If the majestic Virunga peaks of Volcanoes National Park look familiar as you approach them, that's because they were once home to primatologist Dian Fossey, and the movie 'Gorillas in the Mist' was shot on location there. Mountain gorillas remain the park's most keenly sought inhabitants, but it also forms an important stronghold for the endangered golden monkey and for 16 bird species native to the Albertine Rift Valley. Guided day hikes onto the richly biodiverse volcanic slopes lead through towering bamboo thickets, dense tropical jungle and otherworldly highaltitude moorland..

    Main Destination: Zanzibar
    Accommodation:  Virunga Inn Resort & SPA
    Meals & Drinks: All meals included

  • Day 10 - Kigali Day Tour

    Kigali has a fascinating story, and your sightseeing excursion will bring the city and its history to life.

    Main Destination: Zanzibar
    Accommodation: Heaven Boutique Hotel
    Meals & Drinks: All meals included

  • Day 11 - Departure

    It's a pity that it has to end, but this is where your safari will draw to a close. We're sure that you will return home with so many exciting and happy memories, and we hope that you will join us again on safari sometime in the future.


    Meals & Drinks: Breakfast

7 Day Safari – Trip of a Lifetime I did a 7 day safari with Shiri Adventures and it was incredible. Full disclosure, I did get mine severely discounted as we worked together on content creation/promotion, but I can honestly say I would have absolutely paid full price to do it.Our guide Laurent was amazing. Linus, the Managing Director, is a godsend and helped us with some issues that popped up right before we left as well as answering every little question we had along the way.This trip was the time of our lives (me and my husband went for our honeymoon). I couldn’t recommend it enough, and I found Shiri to be very reasonable in cost compared to many other safaris at this level.And we saw the big 5! I’m telling you, our guide had supervision. 10/10 would recommend Shiri Adventures.

7 Day Safari Experience Shiri Adventures made the whole safari a breeze! We got to see so many animals and different national parks over our 7 day safari. And with the help of our guide we were able to spot and see the all of the big 5 animals (lions, elephants, leopards, water buffalo & rhinos)! We got a discounted experience via my wife, but I would pay full price any day. It was amazing!

BEST Guide Company In Tanzania Linus and his crew were all over the tiny details that made each excursion we want on amazing. Did the 3-day safari, Materuni Falls & coffee tour, and visited the Chemka hot springs. Everything was well planned out and communication from Linus was impeccable. Highly recommend this company and will use them again if I ever find myself back in Eastern Africa!

My Kilimanjaro hike I had a wonderful experience with the team at Shiri, Linus provided such a wonderful team that played a very huge role in helping us summit Uhuru peak. The team was organised and professional and made the 6 day hike a very memorable one for me and for the friends I made on the hike.

6 day Marangu Route Kilimanjaro Absolutely wonderful from start to finish! My friends and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro via the Marangu route with Shiri Adventures, and Linus and his staff delivered an amazing experience. There were 4 of us in our group and we all had limited hiking experience, but we all made it to the summit with the help of our amazing guides Yaki and Bryson, along with the porters. After we finished, they had beers, champagne and a bus waiting for us at the gate. I have traveled quit a bit and I can say I’ve never had a better experience anywhere. If I ever go back to Tanzania I will hire Linus and Shiri Adventures to handle it. I wish I could do more than write a review. I highly highly highly recommend using Linus and Shiri Adventures for your Kilimanjaro trek or safari. Thanks again to Linus, Yaki, Bryson and everyone else, you made our trip happen and delivered a once in a lifetime experience!!

Highly recommend using Shiri Adventures. We went on a three-day safari with Shiri as well as a day trip to Materuni Falls and Coffee Plantation and Chemka Hot Springs. I can’t say enough good things about how helpful Linus and his staff were before, during, and after our trip. Everyone was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and made sure we were enjoying our trip. Our accommodations and food exceeded expectations. If you’re planning a trip to Tanzania, I would highly recommend booking your adventures with Shiri.

Best Safari! Me and my wife spend our honeymoon on safari (Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire and Manyara) with Shiri Adventures and I can say that it was the best experience!We didn’t have a single complaint. From communication with mr. Linus, who responded quickly to all our questions and concerns (via WhatsApp or email), to the entire organization of Safari, transfers to airport, luxury lodges in national parks… Also, on our safari jeep they put our wedding photo – nice personal touch :)Our guide (mr. Ibra) was an exceptional at finding animals that we could see from a distance of only a few meters! He taught us about animals, their behavior and the habitats they live in, about the natives Maasai (which we also visited), about land Africa and Tanzania… Really experienced guide! We would recommend Shiri Adventures 10/10. These guys are on another level! 🙂
