Day Tours

RA SAFARIS PRIVATE DAY TOURS IN TANZANIA

RA Safaris offers a variety of African safari day tours mostly from Arusha and Moshi towns. The excursions are great and guests are able to visit, explore a lot in a short visit. We are flexible to be able to pick/drop you at any point in Arusha or Moshi.

Picnic lunch (lunch box) and bottled drinking water are included in all day trips.

Day tour to Arusha National Park

Pick up from your hotel/residence and drive to Arusha National Park. The closest national park to Arusha town – northern Tanzania’s safari capital – Arusha National Park is a multi-faceted jewel, often overlooked by safari goers, despite offering the opportunity to explore a beguiling diversity of habitats within a few hours. Park size: 137 sq km (53 sq miles).

The entrance gate leads into shadowy montane forest inhabited by inquisitive blue monkeys and colorful turacos and trogons – the only place on the northern safari circuit where the acrobatic black-and-white Colobus monkey is easily seen. In the midst of the forest stands the spectacular Ngurdoto Crater, whose steep, rocky cliffs enclose a wide marshy floor dotted with herds of buffalo and warthog.

Duration:1 day; Price: From $xxxx; Starting Point: Arusha/Moshi Town; Ending Point:  Arusha/Moshi Town.

Day tour to Lake Manyara National Park

Pick up from your hotel/residence and drive to Lake Manyara National Park.  Stretching for 50km along the base of the rusty-gold 600-metre high Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway as "the loveliest I had seen in Africa". Park size: 330 sq km (127 sq miles), of which up to 200 sq km (77 sq miles) is lake when water levels are high.

The compact game-viewing circuit through Manyara offers a virtual microcosm of the Tanzanian safari experience. From the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle-like groundwater forest where hundred-strong baboon troops lounge nonchalantly along the roadside, blue monkeys scamper nimbly between the ancient mahogany trees, dainty bushbuck tread warily through the shadows, and outsized forest hornbills honk cacophonously in the high canopy.

Duration:1 day; Price: From $xxxx; Starting Point: Arusha/Moshi Town; Ending Point:  Arusha/Moshi Town.

Day tour to Tarangire National Park

Pick up from your hotel/residence and drive to Tarangire National Park. Day after day of cloudless skies. The fierce sun sucks the moisture from the landscape, baking the earth a dusty red, the withered grass as brittle as straw. The Tarangire River has shriveled to a shadow of its wet season self. But it is choked with wildlife. Thirsty nomads have wandered hundreds of parched kilometers knowing that here, always, there is water. Park size: 2,600 sq km (1,005 sq miles).

Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It’s the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem - a smorgasbord for predators – and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared Oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed.

Duration:1 day; Price: From $xxxx; Starting Point: Arusha/Moshi Town; Ending Point:  Arusha/Moshi Town.

Day tour to the Ngorongoro Crater

Pick up from your hotel/residence and drive to the Ngorongoro Crater. The Ngorongoro Conservation Authority Area boasts the finest blend of landscapes, wildlife, people and archeological sites in Africa. Often called an “African Eden” and ‘eighth natural wonder of the world’, it is also pioneering experiment in multiple land use. For Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the idea of multiple land use means to allow humans and wildlife to coexist in a natural setting. Traditional African pastoralists co-operate with Tanzania’s government bodies to help preserve the natural resources of the area and ensure a fantastic experience for tourists.

The First view of the Ngorongoro Crater takes the breath away. Ngorongoro is a huge caldera (collapsed volcano), 250 sq km in size and 600 m deep. The crater alone has over 20,000 large animals including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhino.The rhino emerge from the forests in mists of early morning, and their prehistoric figures make a striking impression, surrounded by the ancient crater walls. No fences or boundaries on the crater walls; animals are free to enter and leave the crater, but many of them stay for the plentiful water and grazing available on the crater floor throughout the year.
