Detailed Itinerary:

Day 1 Meru Mbega Lodge, Arusha

Leaving behind the bustle of Nairobi in Kenya, we travel south to the Tanzanian border. After completing legal formalities, we continue to the busy town of Arusha, our base for the night. Northern Tanzania is home to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Kilimanjaro. Those who have purchased the optional Serengeti Excursion upgrade package (strongly recommended) will be briefed this evening.

Day 2&4 Kudu Lodge, Karatu Serengeti National Park
Day 3 Kananga Special Tented Camp or
Day 2–4 Serengeti Excursion,

The following days vary according to whether or not you take part in the upgrade to Serengeti (highly recommended) and those that do will have a truly memorbable experience. Your guide will brief you on the full day excursion into the crater and Karatu is conveniently situated to allow you the opportunity to participate in various optional activities in the coming days. For those on the Serengeti excursion you will be collected on day 2 and be away from the group for the next days camping and experiencing the migration
Day 3: We rise early and transfer to the world–renowned Ngorongoro Crater in 4×4 safari type vehicles spending much of the day exploring the crater floor in search of the animals which roam the plains and forest areas and overnight in the Seronera rgion.
Day 4: Today game drive through the Serengeti National Park searching for some of the resident animals from elephants, lions, and plains game.  Even out of the migration season there are plenty of animals to be seen. We return to Karatu late afternoon

Day 5 Meru Mbega Lodge, Arusha – 1night

Today we return to Arusha where we meet up with our fellow travellers who opted for the Serengeti excursion.

Day 6 Bagamoyo Traveller’s Lodge, Bagamoyo

Our journey today takes us south to the coastal town of Bagamoyo – we spend much of it travelling as we pass bustling villages and beautiful scenic backdrops on this busy travel route. Formerly a centre point of the East African slave trade, Bagamoyo lies just north of the port of Dar es Salaam and is a perfect launching point for our upcoming Zanzibar Excursion. This evening we will prepare for our Zanzibar Excursion that begins tomorrow morning.

Day 7&8   Amaan Bungalows, Zanzibar Island

Heading to the port and hopping aboard a ferry, we journey to Nungwi on the northern shores of Zanzibar, visiting the spice farms of Kidichi and Kizambani en–route to our nights destination. The island is famous not only for its spices and fragrances, beautiful beaches, diving but also its history. You can join optional excursions for the following day and your guide will be on hand to assist. Nungwi is geared around water sports and offers fishing, snorkelling, scuba diving and a variety of ocean safari option, alternatively relax on the beach or perhaps rent a scooter and explore.

Day 9 All Seasons Hotel, Stone Town, Zanzibar

We travel to Stone Town, an area with a rich history, this bustling port was once a landmark on both the slave and spice trade routes, and enjoy a guided walking spice tour passing through spice plantations and villages – a chance to experience a little of cultural life and see how workers climb trees and seek out specific plants.

Day 10 Dar es Salaam, Tanzania – end of trip

This morning explore historic Stone Town before hopping on an afternoon ferry back to Dar es Salaam. Stone Town represents the historic centre of Zanzibar Town and is a must see for those with an interest in history, culture and the unique architecture of the historic port. Your tour comes to an end upon arrival back in Dar es Salaam.

How we rate our safaris

Namibia, Botswana and some other African destinations do not have a set star system that is familiar worldwide to many countries, however, as this is widely used, we have tried to replicate this format to give you an idea of the level of comfort during your safari. For example, a mobile camping tour in Namibia is given 1* and luxury accommodation increasing to 5*. Depending on your tour, there may be a bit of a mix of levels of comfort so please check if you are not sure.

1* or 1–2* Rated Safaris – Camping tours:

These are generally scheduled/small group or self–drive safaris (though a private–guided safari can also fall into this category if you wish to camp); the scheduled trips generally involve client participation where you may be expected to put up/take down your tent and assist with camp chores, dome tents and a ground mattress is supplied. For self–drive options this will often mean roof tents on the vehicle and all camping equipment. There may be the occasional night in simple accommodation but majority of nights are spent camping and most camp sites will have shared ablution facilities. If there is a good mix of both camping and accommodation, this may be rated at 1&2*. These are the most basic level of safaris offered and scheduled safari group sizes vary according to the trip and company – 1* tours are the most affordable option and geared for adventurous travellers who do not mind a bit of discomfort.

Accommodated Safaris

Standard/Mid–range safaris 2–3.5*

Standard accommodation style trips generally have no camping included (though on occasion with a specific activity such as a Delta or Serengeti excursion, or perhaps hiking, a couple of nights may be included). As a general rule this is not the case. With most small group/scheduled tours accommodation is generally 2/3* level – clean and affordable but generally without too many frills; rooms will have en–suite facilities, most will offer air con/fans in the rooms, swimming pools etc (not guaranteed), restaurant/bar facilities, though location can be a little further away from main place of interest this option offers excellent value for money for those seeking a bed each night! We try to indicate on each trip the level of comfort for the particular tour

Superior/Luxury Safaris 3.5–5*

A superior style of accommodation. Most lodges at this level will have air–conditioning or fans in the room though some accommodation establishments are technically “camps” as they may be partially build of canvas – these “camps” are permanent fixtures, generally built on a platform, and will have full and comfortable facilities – the occasional trip may have a more basic night or two involved depending on location to ensure clients can fully appreciate the region they are experiencing. Service is generally very good and most places (outside of towns/cities) will have just a few rooms/chalets. Tours in this bracket include very small group safaris (up to 8 clients), self–drive and private–guided options which are tailored to suit you. The luxury options offer a high standard of accommodation, facilities and service in the region with attention to detail – some “camps” /lodges will have private guides and vehicles, but all accommodation is the best available with personalized service and a quality or unique experience perhaps unavailable elsewhere or in a more moderate price bracket. Tours include fly–in safaris, self–drive and private–guided options.

Please note: this is a guideline only and each destination can vary – some areas in Southern Africa do not always have 5* accommodation (there are limited hotels outside of cities that have the same * grading accommodation) but will be best in the area, have limited volume of rooms and some of the best locations and experiences for clients that is outside of the normal “tourist/travel” route. This can include exclusive conservation regions and emphasis is place on clients having a unique experience rather than offering hairdresser type of facilities that may be found is hotels in cities in other countries. Please also remember that some of these locations can be remote so wifi may not always be available, nor a huge menu range.
