Join fellow LGBTQIA+ travellers on this gay safari adventure through Tanzania and Zanzibar. Experience authentic Africa, as you visit iconic sites and witness the beauty of wildebeests, zebras, elephants, lions, and more.
Day 1: Arrival
Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport you will be met by a tour representative and transferred to our Arusha hotel. Spend the day at your leisure, enjoying the facilities at our lakeside resort, or relaxing before dinner this evening. An early evening welcome reception will allow you to get acquainted with your fellow gay travellers. Enjoy dinner independently tonight.
Days 2 and 3: Lake Manyara National Park
This morning begins with a drive to Lake Manyara National Park, home to over 350 species of birds. Our accommodation is situated on the edge of Mto Wa Mbu, overlooking the Great Rift Valley. Each luxury guestroom offers a private balcony, with views of the escapement and lake beyond. Tonight you can look forward to an official welcome dinner.
Day 4: Gibb’s Farm
Lunch today will be enjoyed at Gibb’s Farm, a privately owned property famed for its cuisine and nestled in a green oasis. After a hearty meal at Gibb’s Farm we will be visiting a traditional Iraqw home. The local tribes’ homes are built using traditional materials and methods, just as would have been the case 200 years ago. Here you will see the tools and weapons used by the Iraqw tribe, as well as trying your hand at grinding stones traditionally. Next, we will visit a more modern Tanzanian farm, where you will observe a bio-gas plant in use. After a busy day, we will continue to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, where our lodgings are situated. Most rooms here have private terraces with views of the crater floor and wildlife.
Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater
An early morning journey onto the crater’s floor is this morning’s activity. A microcosm of East African scenery, the crater floor is home to more than 25,000 large animals. If you’re lucky, you may bear witness to Tanzania’s stunning black-maned lions. Black rhinos are also often found here. Due to new regulations, after 6 hours on the crater floor we will have to begin our ascension. We’ll return to the lodge in time for a late lunch, after which you will visit the Maasai Village.
Day 6: Olduvai Gorge
Olduvai Gorge is our destination today. Take in the stunning landscapes as we drive to the legendary site. Here we will explore the iconic gorge, as well as the nearby museum which houses a cast of the 3.7 million-year-old footsteps of Australopithecus Afarensis. After our stop at the gorge, we will continue our drive to Serengeti National Park. For the next two nights you’ll be staying in a camp overlooking the vast wildlife preserve of the Serengeti. Each tent offers private bathrooms with bucket showers, mosquito nets, and solar-powered electricity. Here you will partake in daily game drives, highlighting the true beauty of this area.
Day 7: The Serengeti
During our stay at the Serengeti, you will join the group for twice-daily wildlife drives. This national park is home to a million wildebeest, and hundreds of thousands of zebras and other herbivorous animals. In the Seronera Valley you will witness predators such as lions, leopards, and cheetahs. Other animals visible include giraffe, topi, buffalo, and impala. An optional excursion of a dawn balloon safari is also available here.
Days 8 and 9: Serengeti Western Corridor’s Grumeti River Basin
Today we will be traversing the stunning Serengeti in order to reach our next destination. We’ll be exploring the famous Grumeti River area in the Western Corridor of the Serengeti. The next two nights will be spent here, giving you plenty of opportunity to witness the area’s magnificent wildlife. Grumeti is famous for its huge crocodiles and hippo pools. Our comfortable camp is located on a hill, offering breathtaking views of the savanna. Nearby you’ll find lions, buffalo, cheetahs, wildebeests, giraffes, baboons, and gazelles.
Day 10: Departure or Zanzibar Extension
Enjoy one last breakfast in the bush before saying goodbye to your fellow gay travellers. From here you’ll be taken back to the airport for your return flights. Alternatively, join the optional Zanzibar extension and expose yourself to an entirely different side of Tanzania.
