New walking safari in Northern Tanzania

November 12 2018

A journey best taken on foot

We're very excited to introduce an unforgettable walk between Entamanu Ngorongoro and Serengeti Safari Camp. Surely unlike anything else in Northern Tanzania, linking two iconic wildlife hotspots and getting you away and off the beaten track, we're as ever, walking in pursuit of wilderness.

Here's what you need to know

The walk will leave Entamanu early in the morning, and take a downhill meander off the Crater rim towards the southern edge of the Serengeti plains, with views out over Olduvai Gorge and the Gol Mountains beyond as the sun lights the horizon. By getting far off the beaten track, you will have the chance to really experience both the traditional Maasai culture, and the wildlife that calls the Ngorongoro highlands home.

  • Led by experienced Nomad and Maasai guides, and by an armed ranger.
  • Costs no more than a standard game drive transfer between the two camps.
  • Offers the opportunity to visit Olduvai Gorge, the museum and Shifting Sands.
  • Available between mid December and March when Serengeti Safari Camp is in the Ndutu area.
  • Depending on group fitness, the walk could last anything from 1hr to 5hrs.
  • Ends with a surprise cook-out brunch near Olduvai Gorge where you'll meet your vehicle, explore the gorge and Shifting Sands and then drive the last bit to camp, arriving in Serengeti Safari Camp in the early afternoon.

Why not arrive on foot too?

Entamanu Ngorongoro is fast becoming one of the most exciting walking camps. Don't forget that we can also arrange for you to arrive on foot and walk into camp from the Seneto descent road. A three hour walk all along the rim of the Crater with truly incredible views. Arriving and leaving the Crater rim camp by your own two pegs, rather than being confined to a car...we can't think of a better way of doing it.
