Trip Itinerary

Day 1: Arusha

Day 1 - Airport transfer & rest day in Arusha
Aerial view of Arusha city, Tanzania

We will meet you on arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport and drive you to your hotel in Arusha where you stay for the night on a bed & breakfast basis.

Day 2: Tarangire National Park

Day 2 - On safari in Tarangire National Park
Elephants walking in Tarangire

Your guide will meet you after breakfast and drive you the approx. 2 hours to Tarangire National Park for a full day’s game drive.

Tarangire is home to large herds of elephant, sometimes up to three hundred strong. The numbers of animals, and the numbers of different species, in the park make it the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti. The park is also famed for its beautiful and ancient baobab trees as well as its wonderful birdlife.

You retire to your lodge at the end of a first full day on safari.

Day 3: Lake Manyara

Day 3 - On safari in Lake Manyara
Giraffes in Lake Manyara, Tanzania

After breakfast this morning you will drive the approx. 2 hours to Lake Manyara National Park for a full day exploring the park.

The western wall of the Great Rift Valley provides the backdrop as you spend the day driving through the dense forest with its teeming primate population including baboon, common monkey, vervet monkey and the nocturnal hushbabies. The lake itself is a shallow, alkaline lake covering 230 km2, which Ernest Hemingway once described as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”. The lake is home to resident hippo pods as well as wonderful birdlife.

You leave the park in the afternoon and head to the Ngorongoro Crater where you stay for the night ahead of tomorrow's early morning descend to the caldera floor. 

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater

Day 4 - On safari in Ngorongoro Crater

After an early start you begin your descent to the caldera floor.

The Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a unique natural phenomenon. Your game drive takes you across the crater and you have great opportunities to enjoy the abundant wildlife, including large numbers of warthog and ostrich as well as hyena, lion and an elusive black rhino population.

You have a lakeside picnic lunch today before you continue exploring the Crater in the afternoon. As the light begins to fade, return to your lodge for dinner and a nightcap. 

Day 5: Serengeti

Day 5 - On safari in Serengeti National Park

You depart from Ngorongoro this morning and game drive through the southern reaches of the Serengeti: the area known as Ndutu. 

Enjoy your game drives in the incredible Serengeti National Park and settle in to your Serengeti luxury camp this evening as you spend your first night beneath the Serengeti stars. 

Day 6: Serengeti

On safari in Serengeti

Your Serengeti safari continues with a full day game drive as you explore deep into the heart of the park. If you’re on the hunt for the ‘Big 5’ then the Serengeti’s vast, fertile expanse is the perfect territory as lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino can all be found.

The great benefit of having your own private guide and vehicle means that you can go wherever you want. The key is to keep good communication with your guide at all times so you see what you would like to.

Day 7: Fly to Zanzibar

Day 7 - Fly to Zanzibar
Luxury safari and beach holidays

You check out from your Serengeti camp today and are driven to the airstrip. You fly on a scenic light aircraft flight from the Serengeti to Zanzibar and this is an incredible adventure in its own right! 

You are met on arrival at Zanzibar Airport and are driven the approx.. 1 hour to your beach resort where you stay for the following 5 nights. Depending on your choice of accommodation we are able to book you on a choice of meal plans from bed & breakfast to all-inclusive.

Days 8-11: Zanzibar

Days 8 to 11 - Relax and enjoy Zanzibar
Beautiful beach in Zanzibar Island

Relax and enjoy Zanzibar free at your leisure.

A great idea during your stay on Zanzibar is to visit a local spice plantation. You get involved with a really hands-on experience, tasting and smelling the spices for which Zanzibar is infamous, as well as enjoying a fresh, locally cooked lunch as part of your tour.

If you'd like to go swimming with dolphins the southern tip of the island, in the Kizimkazi area, is where to be. We encourage this activity in low season, when fewer tourists are around, as in high season the numbers of boats can get disturbing for the dolphins. 

Day 12: Fly home

Day 12 - Fly home

Today you check-out of your resort and are driven to Zanzibar Airport where you check-in for your return international flight.
