Group Safari

Welcome to Tanzania and enjoy the adventure!

Our custom-tailored luxury Tanzanis safaris are organized to the smallest detail while providing exceptional service and attention from start to finish. Our commitment to creating and delivering unsurpassed personalized adventures is the foundation for your seamless safari experience.

Evening arrival to the Mt. Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) via Delta/KLM airlines.VIP Meet & Greet and with assistance through the customs process. Transfer to The Arumeru River Lodge for dinner and overnight http://arumerulodge.com/
After breakfast at the lodge, we will depart mid-morning via road transfer for Tarangire National Park (approximately 1.5 hours). Upon arrival to the gates of the park, you will explore among the varied landscapes including acacia woodland, marshland, and ancient baobab tree forest. These magnificent trees are believed to be among the largest and longest-living trees in Africa. Elephant herds can be found in abundance; it’s not unlikely to see anywhere from 50-100 elephants gathered near the river’s edge at one time. Overnight at The Tarangire Safari Lodge http://www.tarangiresafarilodge.com/
Enjoy an early breakfast at the lodge then depart via road transfer and game-drive en-route out of Tarangire and head for Lake Manyara National Park. This is one of Tanzania’s smallest National Parks and can be enjoyed within the span of 2 hours. Expect to see beautiful waterbirds, monkeys, elephants, hippos and other safari animals. This is a great park for birders and a perfect introduction for the exciting days ahead! Enjoy a picnic lunch in the park before continuing on to the Ngorongoro Crater for an afternoon game-drive.

The Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and also known as “the eighth wonder of the world”. Upon arrival at the gates of the conservation area, you will begin your ascent through a lush, green Montane forest before reaching the world’s largest inactive, intact, and unfilled volcanic caldera (2000ft deep and 100sq miles). The crater formed after a large volcano collapsed on itself 2-3 million years ago, Take-in the “unparalleled beauty of one of the world’s most unchanged wildlife sanctuaries” while in search of resident game such as elephant herds, lion prides, cheetahs, hyenas, zebra herds, and so much more. Overnight at The Plantation Lodge http://www.plantation-lodge.com/

Enjoy a leisurely morning at the lodge with hot breakfast (as the jet-lag may be catching-up) before departing late-morning for a game-drive. Or, opt for a sunrise game-drive with picnic breakfast on the crater floor. (Throughout your safari we typically encourage / recommend early morning game-drives to catch the nocturnal animals returning from their hunts; this is when the animals are most active and there are fewer vehicles in the bush.) There is so much to see in the crater that a half-day is simply not enough. Game-drive today at your discretion then return to The Plantation Lodge at the time of your choosing and the evening is free to enjoy as you please.
After an early breakfast, road transfer to the Serengeti National Park (approximately 1.5 hours). En-route we can stop at the historic Ol Duvai Gorge (labelled the “Cradle of Mankind”) which is where the first early human species occupied 1.9 million years ago. Pending interest level, we can arrange for a private tour down into the excavation site where the famous researchers Louis & Mary Leakey first made their incredible discoveries about the origin and evolution of man. Alternatively, we can visit an authentic Maasai tribal village as we depart the conservation area. We will break mid-morning for a picnic breakfast. Upon departing the Ngorongoro Highlands and driving down Naabi Hill, you will enter the Serengeti Park and we’ll officially be deep in the heart of the African bush!

 

The Seronera Valley is the best place for viewing lions, leopards and cheetahs year-round. Leopards can be spotted in the acacia woodlands, Cheetahs are found hunting on the open grassy plains, and lions prides are often seen lounging on rocky outcrops called “kopjes”. The Moru region is particularly well known for its’ beautiful landscape with rocky kopjes and is a must-see. Rare Black Rhinos are often spotted in that region. We’ll also explore the central territory for parts of the migration, massive elephant bulls, jackals, spotted hyenas, giraffes, zebras and large schools of hippos and Nile crocodiles in the Seronera River.  Overnight at The Kubukubu Luxury Tented Camp http://twctanzania.com/en/accommodation/kubu-kubu-tented-camp/

After a hot breakfast at the camp on the morning of day 7, we will depart for the North. It will take between 3-4 hours via road transfer to the northern extension of the Serengeti National Park, though keep in mind we are game-driving en-route and you just never know what we will happen upon!

Upon arrival in the north, our time will be spent focusing on The Great Migration in addition to viewing herds of elephants, pride of lions, jackals, spotted hyenas, giraffes, and large schools of hippos and crocodiles in the Mara River. Our goal will be to witness one of nature’s most spectacular natural events, which is a river crossing, where hundreds or sometimes thousands of wildebeest and zebra cross treacherous crocodile-infested waters in their endless pursuit for food and water on the other side of the river!

This region is, without a doubt, the best kept secret of the Serengeti. It is twice the size of the Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya, but has fewer crowds. The vistas and landscapes are unsurpassed, which make for terrific back-drops while game-viewing. Resident animal numbers are extremely high as well, with prides of lions up to thirty strong. Migration and predator action here is non-stop, assuring the reputation of this area as one the finest game-viewing regions in Africa. Overnight at The Mara River Tented Lodge (NEW) http://twctanzania.com/en/ (specific web page is not up yet so am providing link to parent company page)

After breakfast at the camp, game-drive en-route to the Kogatende Airstrip. Board a 10:00am flight back to Arusha. Upon landing (12:15pm) you will connect to a 1:00pm flight arriving ZNZ at 2:35pm. Upon landing in Zanzibar you will be greeted by our island representative and transferred to your hotel Dream of Zanzibar Resort https://www.dreamofzanzibar.com/en/ The evening is free to enjoy as you please.
