Tanzania Luxury Safari

A Luxurious Big Five Safari

As one of the most untouched wildlife sanctuaries on Earth, it provides a sheltered habitat to dozens, if not hundreds, of species.

ITINERARY:

Jambo! Welcome to Tanzania. Our trip kicks off at 8AM with a group meeting over breakfast. Then we’re off, with our safari guides, to Tarangire National Park. With any luck, we’ll spot wildlife along the way, so keep your eyes peeled. Upon arrival at our permanent tented camp, we’ll enjoy lunch, some free time by the pool, then an afternoon game drive. Upon returning to the lodge, we’ll savour some supper, then relax through the evening following a full first day.

We’ve devoted today to safariing, with both morning and afternoon game drives scheduled. We’re pretty much guaranteed to see herds of elephants, lions, zebra and wildebeest – waterbuck and giraffe are also a common sight – so keep your cameras handy. We’ll break for lunch at the lodge, and perhaps dip into the pool for a little refreshment, before we get back to the wildlife. 

After breakfast, we’ll check out of the lodge, then drive to the Ndutu area. Interestingly, unlike at Tarangire, this tented camp moves around to maximize wildlife-spotting opportunities. As for the tents, they’re downright luxurious, so you will definitely rest easy. After checking in and settling in, an afternoon game drive awaits, followed by a spectacular sunset, dinner, and campfire (know any ghost stories?), before we call it a night.

Hope you’re feeling chipper, because we’ve got an early morning game drive in our 4X4 safari vehicles, and we’d like to leave the savagery to the animals (of which there are plenty): nearly two million wildebeests and zebras venture through this area each year, along with cheetahs, lions, giraffes and hundreds of bird species. We’ll enjoy another game drive in the afternoon, with dinner served al fresco under the stars.

Following breakfast, we’ll drive through the Olduvai Gorge – the ‘seat of humanity’, and one of the world’s most important paleo-anthropological sites – before descending into the Ngorongoro Crater, which was recently named one of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders (suffice to say, the landscape is gorgeous). At 1,600 meters altitude, the bottom of this caldera shelters almost 30,000 animals in its naturally enclosed habitat, and we can expect to see lions, elephants, zebra, hippos, buffalo, and rhinos. After the game drive, our lodge awaits on the soft, red-brown hills of the crater. It offers both Wi-Fi and a fantastic pool, so feel free to get connected or unwind with a swim.

This morning we visit Lake Manyara National Park, best known for spotting flamingos. We'll feast on lunch, then head on a walk to a small waterfall and cave that elephants are known to frequent. This evening we share our last meal together as a group.

This morning we’ll check out of our lodge, then head back to Arusha where we’ll have an included lunch before parting ways and say goodbye.
