DAY 1 & 2 –– YOUR ADVENTURE BEGINS
2 Nights in Arusha––Arrival
The charming town of Arusha rests beneath the mighty gaze of Mount Meru and is an ideal base to explore Tanzania's Northern Safari Circuit.
Starting with Arusha National Park which is just less than 10 kilometers away,hidden in the base of Mount Meru.
The park is full wild surprises including the likes of Giraffes, Variety of Baboons, Buffalos and hundreds of birds species. A very worthy safari starter.
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 flight away from Arusha's beloved coffee plantations.
Our favorite 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 safari.
DAY 3 & 4 –– CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY TO
2 Nights in Ngorongoro Crater
Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater has been part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) since 1973.
Aside from boasting a fertile floor and thus an abundance of wildlife (notably the Big 5), the crater is also the only intact caldera left in the world.
Fun fact: many speculate—before Ngorongoro erupted—it would have been higher than the mighty Kilimanjaro. Located 1,800 meters above sea level in the Ngorongoro Highlands, the crater’s vegetation ranges from forest on one slope and grassland on the other, to a floor consisting largely of grassland renowned for leopard spotting.
Our favorite Lodge in Ngorongoro Crater
NGORONGORO CRATER LODGE
Welcome to Ngorongoro Crater Lodge: Ngorongoro Crater Lodge has been called the game lodge at the top of the world. Between the natural riches of the Crater spread out at its feet and the incredible architecture, it’s easy to believe that you have entered a realm of pure fantasy.
Nowhere else on earth can you wake up among all the trappings of an elegant baroque châteaux that transports you into one of the most famous African landscapes. An eclectic blend of teak panelling, Victorian furnishings and whimsical African touches creates a sumptuous atmosphere that is as elegant and unique as the Crater itself.
DAY 5, 6 & 7 –– CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY TO
3 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 views.
Our favourite Camp in Serengeti National Park

4 Nights in Zanzibar Archipelago
A chain of island paradises
The Zanzibar Archipelago is made up of a chain of islands in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania.
Centuries ago, the island was an important area for the spice trade, first with the Arab world since the eleventh century, before falling under the rule of Arab sultans who reigned over the islands for a number of years, integrating with the local Swahili.
Unguja Island is the largest of all islands in the archipelago and more commonly known as Zanzibar. Stone Town, littered with Indo-Arabian architecture, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
