Day by Day Overview
Arusha is your gateway to Tanzania’s treasure store. This charming town rests underneath the mighty gaze of Mount Meru and is an ideal base to explore Tanzania’s northern safari circuit. It’s hard to think of another place in the world that is in close vicinity to such a variety of national parks and game reserves! Here, the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater are only a short flight away from Arusha’s beloved coffee plantations.
- ARUSHA GRAN MELIA
A little over an hour from Kilimanjaro Airport and few minutes from Arusha Airport, Arusha Gran Melia is the perfect stopover on your way to or from a Tanzanian safari. Our favourite hotel in Arusha, it’s an oasis set in 18 acres of beautiful landscaped coffee and tea plantations. Pure tranquility with spectacular views of Mount Meru. Gran Meliá Arusha offers a unique experience combining the most exciting once-in-a-lifetime safari destination with state-of-the-art luxury facilities.
See predator and prey side-by-side in nature’s beautiful spectacle, Tarangire National Park, a hidden gem in Tanzania’s famed northern safari circuit. With herds of elephant, lions and other game animals flocking to its river banks and swamps during the dry season, it offers an excellent East African safari. As many safari goers refer it as a second Serengeti, Tarangire surely lives up to the expectation of the name.
Childhood nostalgia amid grand old trees, wonder comes easily at Tarangire Treetops, a wild-luxury lodge featuring treehouse-like rooms set in the branches of grand baobab and marula trees. It is this nostalgic sparkle that is all too visible in the eyes of the ‘grown-ups’ who gaze upon Tarangire Treetops for the first time as it sits serenely on the border of the Tarangire National Park. Here you can experience warmth and happiness as friendly Maasai tribesmen greet and welcome you to this second home.
Home to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the Ngorongoro highlands in northern Tanzania offer a multitude of fascinating experiences 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, 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.
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 the 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!
Stretching across 1.5 million hectares of land, the Serengeti National Park is known for its impressive population of wildlife, including the Big 5. It is also 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 a 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.
SERENGETI SAYARI CAMP
The award-winning Sayari Camp is based in the north of Serengeti National Park, in a prime location to witness thousands of wildebeest crash across the Mara River as part of their Great Migration. Overlooking the golden plains, the 15 bright and spacious suites have walk-in showers, al fresco tubs and verandas on which you can laze away the afternoon with a book. Sayari’s rim-flow pool is set between natural rock formations for guests to cool off in while watching elephants or zebras ambling past camp.
