Itinerary / more information

  • Day 1 - Arusha Kilimanjaro - Arusha. On arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport you will be met by your driver guide for the short transfer to your lodge, nestled between the peaks of Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro. Spend the rest of the afternoon at leisure or visit the Game Sanctuary that has for many years provided a safe haven to African plains game.
  • Day 2 - Tarangire National Park Arusha - Tarangire National Park. This morning, wake to the views of Mt Meru before heading down to breakfast. Then join your driver guide and set out across the Great Rift Valley to Tarangire National Park for a full day game drive. Tarangire National Park; named after the river that crosses through the park, is Tanzania’s sixth largest park and home to large herds of elephants. Late afternoon we make our way to our intimate eco friendly camp within the park. Surrounded by Acacia studded grasslands, there's plenty of resident game to spot from the camp and you can end the day watching a breathtaking sunset.
  • Day 3 - Serengeti National Park Tarangire National Park - Serengeti National Park. Today we have a long drive through arguably the best game park in the world. The Serengeti is Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park. Its name means 'endless plain' in the Masai language. It is from here that massive concentrations of wildebeest, zebras and other animals commence the annual Great Migration in search of pastures new, providing one of the greatest natural spectacles to be found anywhere in the world. We can watch golden-maned lions stalking the migrating herds, spot leopards at rest in trees at dusk and there's the option to enjoy a hot-air balloon ride at dawn as the sun’s golden rays illuminate the land.

    We meander our way through this famous park with fantastic game viewing as we head towards our tented camp in northern Serengeti. The intimate camp offers tranquillity, spectacular wildlife sighting and no better place to take in one of the world's greatest wildlife spectacles!
  • Day 4 - Serengeti game drives The Serengeti at sunrise is a beautiful sight and one not to be missed. Early morning is the best time for spotting animals and we head out in search of the Big Five on our first game drive of the day. Afternoons are normally a lazy affair that end in the late afternoon when the temperatures cool down and the animals start to be active again. Today is no different and we will head out for a late afternoon drive before returning to camp for dinner.

    There is also the opportunity to enjoy an optional early morning hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti, with its beautiful scenery and incredible wildlife.
  • Day 5 - Ngorongoro Crater Serengeti - Karatu. After the thrills of the Serengeti, we head out on a full day’s game drive through the Serengeti towards the Ngorongoro Crater, stopping along the way to visit one of the world's most important prehistoric sites - Olduvai Gorge. Here, we learn how the gorge earned its name 'Cradle of Mankind'. On arrival to the Ngorongoro Crater we have the opportunity to drive through the Crater Rim and see the Crater in all its glory. We arrive at the lodge in time for a relaxing drink and a delicious dinner in the lush surroundings.
  • Day 6 - Ngorongoro Crater Karatu - Ngorongoro Crater - Karatu. This morning the Ngorongoro Crater awaits us. The Crater is a conservation area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated 180km west of Arusha in the Crater Highlands area of Tanzania. After an early breakfast, we will head out towards the Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera, where we experience an amazing game drive on the crater floor filled with wildlife and said to be one of the most thrilling game spotting experiences. The crater won’t leave you disappointed. Back at the lodge it’s time to enjoy our last African sunset and dinner.
  • Day 7 - Lake Manyara National Park Karatu - Lake Manyara - Arusha - Kilimanjaro. This morning we visit Lake Manyara National Park whose shores are a shimmer of pink, due to the large flamingo population and it was once dubbed as the ‘loveliest lake in Africa’ by Ernest Hemingway. We spend our final morning in the park on a game drive and if we're lucky we'll see the tree climbing lions that the park is famous for. Then we depart from the park and make our way to Arusha Airport where this tour ends. If you require a transfer back to Kilimanjaro International Airport this can be arranged on request. Please contact us for details.

    Note: Please make sure that onward flights from Arusha Airport are booked AFTER 3pm, and flights from Kilimanjaro Airport are booked AFTER 6pm, or 5pm for domestic flights. Or consider travelling onto the beautiful island of Zanzibar for some blissful rest and relaxation.
