Day by Day Overview

The group are welcomed at Kilimanjaro Airport with drinks and Maasai dancing after which you board the vehicles and start the one hour drive to Arusha Mount Meru Hotel.

  • Dinner and overnight: Mount Meru Hotel, half board

After breakfast you will depart for Tarangire National Park, Tanzania’s third largest national park and sanctuary for an unusually large elephant population. Majestic baobab trees are an interesting feature of the park, dwarfing the animals that feed beneath them. Animals concentrate along the Tarangire River, which provides the only permanent water supply in the area. There is a great diversity of wildlife including lion, leopard, and cheetah and up to 6,000 elephant.

  • Overnight: Tarangire Roika Lodge, full board

After breakfast you will drive to Serengeti National Park via Olduvai Gorge, the most famous archaeological location in East Africa, internationally recognized for Louis and Mary Leakey’s famous discoveries of early humans and magnificent antiquities documenting the evolutionary history of our stone tool-using ancestors, vertebrate fauna and the environments over the last two million years. Thereafter you will head to Naabi gate where you stop for your picnic lunch on a kopje (rock outcropping) then proceed in Serengeti National Park on a game drive to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

  • Overnight: Serengeti Sopa Lodge / Serena Hotel, full board

Today you have a full day game drive in the Serengeti. Your driver guide will take you out to look for the Serengeti Great Migration as well as lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, monkeys, baboons, hippos, rhinos, antelopes and many different species of birds. Lunch will be served in the bush at a private picnic site with a table full of food and drink. After this special lunch you proceed with your game drive with enough time to see more wildlife. In the evening you will have sunset pictures before heading back to the lodge for dinner.

On this day there is also a hot air balloon option, taking a balloon ride over the Serengeti (USD 500 pp), is an amazing chance to see the wildebeest migration from air. After the balloon trip you will see them from your vehicle and should be able to get stunning pictures.

  • Overnight: Serengeti Sopa Lodge / Serena Hotel, full board

After breakfast you will drive to Ngorongoro Conservation Area where you descend into the crater for a wonderful game drive (with a picnic lunch). The Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site where very few animals migrate in and out of the crater with its 2,000 ft high walls so it has one of the highest game densities in the world. Among the species are lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds and other species. You might expect to see the ‘Big Five’ in one day. Later on in the day you will ascend to the top and proceed to Lake Eyasi Lodge for dinner and overnight.

  • Overnight at Lake Eyasi Lodge, full board

Early in the morning we depart to the village for a local hunting experience with the Hadzabe and Datonga tribes. This is not a mere performance – the Bushmen rely on these techniques to survive and you’ll need to be very attentive and at times quiet, while they demonstrate their use of locally made poisons in incapacitating the poor creatures on which they depend for survival. After hunting you will take picture of them celebrating their hunt by eating the meet. Afterwards return to the lodge for a late breakfast before departing for Arusha airport/Kilimanjaro airport for your flight to Zanzibar. On arrival at Zanzibar airport you will meet with our representative, have drinks at the airport then board the vehicle ready for the transfer to Mnarani Beach Cottage.

  • Overnight at Mnarani Beach Cottage, full board

These two days you will be staying at Mnarani Beach Cottage with optional activities including visiting Prison Island, scuba diving and relaxing at the hotel with its lovely beach and beautiful clear sea.

  • Overnight at Mnarani Beach Cottage, full board

After breakfast your driver will meet you at the hotel to take you on your Stone Town tour and spice tour. You will have lunch at one of the best local restaurants in Stone Town before driving to Jozani Forest for a 2-hour tour. Afterwards head to the airport for your flight to Dar es Salaam, where you connect with your international flight.
