Day by Day Overview

Arrive at  Kilimanjaro International Airport and be greeted by our guide. Drive to Legendary Lodge in Arusha for the dinner and overnight.

Arusha is a city in northern Tanzania and the capital of the Arusha Region, with a population of 416,442 plus 323,198 in the surrounding Arusha District. Located below Mount Meru on the eastern edge of the eastern branch of the Great Rift Valley, Arusha has a temperate climate. The city is close to the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Manyara National Park, Olduvai Gorge, Tarangire National Park, Mount Kilimanjaro, and Arusha National Park on Mount Meru.

Meals: D
Accommodation: Legendary Lodge

After breakfast, your guide will pick you up for the drive to Tarangire National Park for a day’s game drive with picnic lunch boxes. In the evening, drive to Oliver’s Camp for dinner and overnight.

Tarangire National Park is a lovely quiet park in Northern Tanzania, located slightly off the main safari route. It’s most famous for its elephant migration, birding and quiet and authentic safari atmosphere. The majority of travellers to the region either miss out on Tarangire altogether or venture into the park for a matter of hours leaving parts of Tarangire virtually untouched.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Oliver’s Camp

After breakfast, proceed for a walking safari with an armed ranger. Later depart for a game drive until the evening. Tarangire is characterized by large herds of elephants, tree-climbing lions and fascinating baobab trees, also called the Tree of Life for its almost mythical powers that some cultures attach to it. This park is especially known for the Tarangire River which flows all year round and is the only source of water for wild animals during dry seasons. In the evening, head back to the camp for dinner and overnight.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Oliver’s Camp

After breakfast,  depart and drive to Lake Manyara National Park for a game drive and proceed to the lodge for lunch. Afterwards, enjoy an evening game drive.

Lake Manyara National Park derives its name from the Maasai word “manyara”, which is the name of the plant euphorbia tirucalli, used by the Maasai to grow livestock stockades.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: &Beyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge

After breakfast, drive to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Here you will explore the Ngorongoro crater rim on a walk. Drive back to the lodge for lunch.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: &Beyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge

After breakfast, drive to Ngorongoro Crater for a game drive after which you drive to Serengeti National Park in the afternoon.

The jewel in Ngorongoro’s crown is a deep, volcanic crater, the largest unflooded and unbroken caldera in the world. About 20kms across, 600 meters deep and 300 sq kms in area, the Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtaking natural wonder. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually be seen here.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Melia Serengeti Lodge

After a good breakfast at the lodge, proceed on a full day game drive in Seronera, the central part of Serengeti with a hot meal for lunch. In the evening,  drive back to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and recently proclaimed one of the Seven Wonders of Africa, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Melia Serengeti Lodge

Wake up early for a morning game drive before sunrise with your packed breakfast and afterwards drive back to the lodge for a hot lunch.  Enjoy the afternoon by relaxing. Later in the afternoon, resume your game drive and then go back to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

A million wildebeest… each one driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling its instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life: a frenzied three-week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40km (25 miles) long columns plunge through crocodile-infested waters on the annual exodus north; replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 km (600 miles) pilgrimage begins again.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Melia Serengeti Lodge

After breakfast and your morning game drive in Serengeti National Park, transfer to Seronera airstrip for your flight to  Zanzibar. Upon arrival, you’ll be met and greeted by your guide for the transfer to your hotel in Stone Town for dinner and overnight.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Park Hyatt Hotel

After your breakfast at the hotel,  your guide will take you to Stone Town for a tour. Explore this fascinating town, which is steeped in history. In the afternoon, transfer to Melia Zanzibar Hotel for dinner and overnight.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Melia Zanzibar Hotel

After breakfast at the hotel, you may go to the beach for relaxation or you may opt for a Spice Tour and Jozani Forest Tour.

We have developed a special Spice Tour with in-depth information not only about spices but also organically grown herbs and a detailed description of their traditional uses in medicine, cosmetics and cooking. After the tour, your guide will invite you for an opulent lunch at his home, where you can taste the spices and fruits.

Jozani Forest is the last habitat of the rare endemic Red Colobus Monkey. With a local guide, you stroll through Jozani Chwaka National Park and look at the rare monkeys. If you wish you can even wander down the boardwalk to the fascinating mangrove ecosystem.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Melia Zanzibar Hotel

Enjoy a full day of relaxation at the beach. Right on the northernmost part of the island, the beach that surrounds this area is truly stunning. Azure waters and white sands are what awaits those that come here. The only drawback really is that many of the hotels have had to perch on the coral cliffs that run north from the village and, as such, lose their beaches at high tide. Generally, however, this is not a problem and, with the small backpacker community in the village, this is a great place to head if you like to get out of the hotel for a drink or two.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Melia Zanzibar Hotel

After breakfast at the hotel, depending on your flight schedule, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight back home.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: No accommodation (End of tour)
