DAY 1 –– WELCOME
1 Night in Arusha
The charming town of Arusha rests underneath the mighty gaze of Mount Meru and is an ideal base to explore Tanzania's famed Northern Safari Circuit.
It's hard to think of another place in the world that is in close proximity to such a variety of national parks and game reserves! Here, the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater are only a short flight or few hours drive away from Arusha's beloved coffee plantations.
Our Favourite Lodge in Arusha
ARUSHA COFFEE LODGE
An Aromatic and Sensory Experience: Lying on the gently rolling foothills that cascade down from the ever-present Mount Meru is the bustling and vibrant town of Arusha. It is here on the outskirts of this town, hidden amongst one of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantations, that you will find Arusha Coffee Lodge, a perfect haven for relaxation either before or after any East African luxury safari.
DAY 2 & 3 –– CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY TO
2 Nights in Tarangire National Park
See predator & prey side-by-side in this beautiful nature spectacle.
Tarangire National Park is a hidden gem in Tanzania Northern Safari Circuit.
With herds of elephant, lions and other game flocking to its river banks and swamps during the dry season, it offers an excellent East African Safari with minimal hustle.
As many safari goers refers it as a second Serengeti, Tarangire surely lives up to the expectation of the name. A visit to remember.
Our Favourite Camp in Tarangire
Set alongside a dry riverbed peppered with huge granite boulders and well hidden amongst the acacia and baobab trees, Nimali Tarangire sits peacefully in its own private concession, adjacent to the eastern boundary of Tarangire National Park and, most importantly, away from the mainstream vehicles visiting the National Park. No-one else is allowed to drive within our own private concession and we use open vehicles for all of our game activities. This is true luxury African safari.
DAY 4 & 5 –– CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY TO
2 Nights in Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Home to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the Ngorongoro highlands in northern Tanzania offer a multitude of fascinating pastimes to engage visitors.
A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, the conservation area allows visitors to sample locally grown and brewed coffee, safari through a crater, and hike up another and walk in the footsteps of early man.
The Ngorongoro Crater is famed for being the only intact caldera in the world. A wildlife sanctuary flourishes in its basin where the floor has been fertilised by the volcanic soil, attracting an array of wildlife ranging from lions and leopards to elephants and hippos.
Our Favourite Lodge in Ngorongoro
THE HIGHLANDS DOMES
Set on the lush slopes of Olmoti Volcano, The Highlands has sweeping views right across to the Serengeti. The eight tents are canvas and perspex domes – a design inspired by traditional Maasai bomas.
At the heart of the camp is our library with its indoor fireplace that replaces the typical safari campfire. At night, gather around a crackling fire with a glass of wine or whiskey before sitting down to a delicious three-course dinner. Luxury in every imaginable way!
DAY 6 & 7 –– CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY TO
2 Nights in Serengeti National Park
Stretching itself across 1.5 million hectares of land, the Serengeti National Park is known for its impressive population of wildlife—most notably the Big 5.
It is perhaps more renowned for being part of the stage on which the annual Great Migration plays out.
Each year, over two million wildebeest, a fair number of gazelles, and small following of zebra seek better grazing areas by migrating south in the Serengeti, then west and north into the Maasai Mara before eventually returning.
It is unsurprising that the Serengeti’s bustling plains offer some of the most remarkable safari opportunities in the country, and visiting in the right season will promise astonishing wildlife spectacle.
Our Favourite Lodge in Serengeti
Set in the more remote area of Kogatende, in the northern sector of the Serengeti National Park, Nimali Mara Camp is a small, intimate luxury safari camp with only 10 tents. Located about 30 minutes from the Mara River in a small kopje, the camp fits naturally into its surroundings amongst the trees and boulders with an infinity pool set within a natural cave. The Camp has been strategically located away from the hustle and bustle of safari vehicles whilst retaining easy access to the river and views of the amazing wildebeest migration crossings.
DAY 8 & 9 –– CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY TO
2 Nights in Lake Manyara
Excitement on the shores of Lake Manyara
Characterised by cliffs, verdant acacia woodlands, open savannahs, and reflective waters, Lake Manyara’s diverse landscape is home to an array of wildlife. Its shores see hippos wallowing in its alkaline waters alongside flamingos picking at succulent treats hidden beneath the surface.
Zebra and giraffe rest languidly on the open grassland, ears pricked for any sign of movement from the woodlands hiding the elusive leopards and tree-loving lions commonly found in the area.
Our Favourite Lodge in Lake Manyara
LAKE MANYARA TREE LODGE
At a Glance: Designed to exert minimal impact on the environment, the lodge offers an exclusive interpretive safari in a more remote area of the National Park. Gentle Tanzanian hospitality is exuded from the team, who have a passion for delighting guests, whether you are on honeymoon, or a family safari.
Nine stilted tree-house luxury suites, crafted from local timber and makuti palm fronds, boast a sophisticated blend of intimacy and romance, offering privacy and exclusivity in the cool, leafy surroundings, which often has elephant visitors passing through.
