Imagine being right in the heart of the wilderness
with a camping safari in Tanzania's Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Samantha Riechter and her boyfriend Thomas Beck, German tourists,
agreed that a camping safari in Tanzania brings an unforgettable
up-close and personal experience of the African bush.

At the
break of dawn, the two trek near the Crater's rim while the shifting
colors of the morning sun illuminate the acacia landscape. The savannah
is bright red, then orange and finally settling to a golden hue as the
grassland comes to life. They begin their day by taking a short walk
just to awaken their spirits. Upon their return, a full English
breakfast is served in the open under a morning breeze. Soon, they
embark on a morning game drive, where they are treated to the rich
tapestry of habitats teeming with wildlife and exotic birds. Samantha
can not believe the immense wildlife especially the rarely seen black

They soon return to the campsite at midday for lunch under
the shade of a Baobab tree. A tasty meal with fresh vegetable and
tropical fruit is served. After, a siesta is as welcoming as a gaze
over the seemingly endless plains sprawling for miles on end. Soon, it
will be time for an exciting afternoon game drive. The game viewing is
abundant with lions, hippos, rhinos, cheetahs, buffaloes and giraffes
just beyond their wondering eyes. Under the dazzling colors of sunset,
they return to the campsite holding hands intimately, where they take a
warm shower and wait for another Tanzania safari adventure.

the Tanzanian safari cook anxiously awaits their arrival at the dinner
table immaculately set next to a crackling campfire underneath the
brilliant canopy of stars. While they dine on a five-course safari
cuisine, gazelles make their way to a favorite watering hole while
curious baboons sniff the aroma of the rich Tanzanian coffee in another
adventurer's cup. After dinner, an evening of stories and tails are
shared by the flickering campfire as relationships cement and memories
forged forever in wilderness. As night falls, Samantha and Thomas
casually head to their tent for a well deserved rest.

Samantha drifts off to sleep under the canvas tent, Thomas hears a
lion's roar and a hyena's mating call in the distance. He's not
startled, as a ranger stands guard throughout the night. Samantha was
already in slumber land after a long day's walk. As the whispering wind
blows, tenderly brushing the tents Thomas is gently lured into a deep
sleep. The midnight coolness punctuated with the occasional echo ushers
in the wee hours of morning. After a peaceful night, the terrain begins
to slowly come to life again, as the two awaken for a new day of

Samantha and Thomas begin this new day by exploring
the surrounding wilderness on foot, as they walk beyond the campsite,
taking time to observe the small wonders, such as spiders, ant lions,
and dung beetles. Led by a qualified ranger, the two embark on a
walking safari taking them to the Ngorongoro Crater's edge. Here, they
are astounded by plentiful game drinking at a nearby lake. Like the day
before, they undoubtedly witness another black rhino in distance while
prides of lions that include the magnificent black-manned males roam
the grasslands just before the acacia filled hills. They also observe
lots of colorful flamingos and a variety of other exotic water birds
around the lake on the crater floor. Along the way, a hearty al fresco
brunch is served under a shady tree, followed by a short siesta in a

There's no better way than a camping safari in Tanzania
to experience the true essence of the African wilderness. Like Samantha
and Thomas, if you befit a adventurous person who respects nature and
wants to experience the African bush in its unique environment, arrange
a tailor-made Tanzania camping safari in the unspoiled, untouched
reaches of northern Tanzania.
