Trip Overview

Join our newest itinerary to Tanzania and discover some of Africa's best safari spots with renowned wildlife photographer, Craig Dietrich. After an overnight stay in Arusha, the group drives south for 3 days of game drives in Tarangire National Park. It's then on to Serengeti National Park, via a tour of the famous Ngorongoro Crater. At the end of the trip, the group will fly from Kogatende back to Arusha for their outbound international flight.
 
Tanzania offers a huge diversity of game species and is one of the best destinations for spotting the Big 5. From the rolling planes of the Serengeti to the dramatic cliffs of the Ngorongoro Crater, the stunning scenery sets the perfect backdrop for photographing the abundant wildlife. August is an ideal time to visit when huge number of elephants, giraffes, and buffalo gather throughout Tarangire National Park, and the wildebeest migration across the Serengeti is coming to an end.

Here's the schedule for this trip:
  • On day 1, guests will stay overnight at Villa Maua, Arusha.
  • On day 2, guests will depart from Villa Maua with a packed lunch and drive to Tarangire National Park for a full day of game drives. The group will stop at a picnic site, eat their packed lunch and rest a little, then proceed with more game drives and check into Tarangire Safari Lodge in the course of the afternoon.
  • On day 3 they will in all likelihood go out for early morning game drives, return for lunch and short break at the lodge and go out again in the afternoon. This is something that will be decided on the ground though – if the guides find out that game is better in the Southern part of the park, they might recommend another full game drive with a picnic lunch.
  • On day 4 they'll depart from Tarangire, spend the day in Manyara National Park and check into their lodge in Farm House Valley in Karatu (Ngorongoro Highlands) in the late afternoon.
  • Day 5 will be another full day, departing from their lodge in the Ngorongoro Highlands with a packed lunch, drive up to the Crater rim and spend the better part of the day on game drives in the Crater floor, then proceed to Lake Masek Lodge in the Ndutu Woodlands
  • Day 6, they'll drive from the Ndutu woodlands to Central Serengeti. Depending on the situation on ground and the group's preference, this could be another full day game drive with picnic lunch, or they check into the Kati Kati camp for lunch and go out again at around 16:00/16:30 for afternoon game drives.
  • On day 7, the group will spend another full day in the Central Serengeti. This will either be split into two half day drives, returning to camp for lunch and a short break, or a full day depending on the group's preference and the game situation.
  • On day 8 they'll head to the Northern Serengeti. This is about a 4 to 5 hour drive so they would normally depart with a packed lunch to make it a full day of game drives en route to camp, but once again this is flexible. They could also depart from the Central Serengeti, arrive for lunch in the Matembezi Classic Camp and go out again for afternoon game drives. To be decided on the ground.
  • Days 9 and 10 will be planned with their safari guides, but no doubt there'll be at least one full day of game drives (taking a packed lunch along) to the river to hopefully see Wildebeest crossing the river.
  • On the last day, our guides will transfer the group to Kogatende airstrip for a mid- to late morning flight back to Arusha. We will have a lunch prepared for them at Katambuga House, followed by a road transfer to Kilimanjaro airport to connect with their international flights.

    Craig Dietrich is an award-winning underwater photographer based in Jupiter, Florida. From an early age Craig felt the need to express himself artistically and the first time he picked up a camera, he knew he had found the perfect outlet for his creativity and sparked what would become a life-altering passion for photography. Craig served our country as a Naval photographer during both Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm when he was given the opportunity to travel the world, and his thirst for adventure was born.
     
    After the Navy, Craig learned to scuba dive. Upon breaking the surface the first time, he knew this was a world he wanted to be a part of and a second passion was ignited. Longing to share that world with others, he put together his two greatest loves and ventured into the world of underwater photography.
     
    Craig’s underwater photography has been featured in multiple dive publications, won multiple awards and has been sold in upscale galleries from Carmel, California to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He now makes his living teaching underwater photography and selling his photography at art shows throughout the southeastern United States.
