Detailed Itinerary:

Day 1  The African Tulip, Arusha

Upon arrival, you will be collected from the airport and transferred to your lodge in the lush forests surrounding the town of Arusha where the remainder of your day is free to explore and acclimatize

Day 2 Tarangire Simba Lodge, Tarangire National Park

You’ll be collected by your guide and start the safari. Our first stop is Arusha town before setting off to Lake Manyara National Park. We will be at Tarangire National Park for lunchtime and enjoy our first game drive this afternoon. Tarangire is known huge elephant population and baobab trees and forms the centre of the annual migratory cycle that includes up to 3,000 elephant, 25,000 wildebeest and 30,000 zebra.

Day 3 Karatu Simba Lodge, Karatu for Lake Manyara

This morning takes us towards Lake Manyara National Park for a game drive located in the north–western corner, lying at the foot of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment.  This hollow soda lake is known not only for its large flocks of flamingos but the elusive tree–climbing lions – keep your eyes open!

Day 4&5 Kenzan Tented Camp/Kisura Serengeti Camp, Serengeti National Park

This morning, depart early for a game drive in the world–renowned Ngorongoro Crater. For many, this wildlife spectacle is the pinnacle of their safari experience. The crater boasts all of the ‘Big 5’, including a small population of endangered black rhino. After a picnic lunch, we head towards the Serengeti through the stunning southern plains. This is the area best known for endless, undulating grass savannah with rocky outcrops that serve as isolated wildlife refuges. The following day is spent game driving around the Serenera region to see some of the planet’s most diverse wildlife spectacles in the most accessible area of the park. The Serenera River is the lifeblood of the Serengeti and renowned for superb year–round game viewing – in particular lion, cheetah and leopard.

Day 6 Karatu Simba Lodge, Ngorongoro Crater

Today we retrace our steps with a morning game drive through the Serengeti followed by picnic lunch, before we continue through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. En route we visit magnificent Olduvai Gorge and made famous by the Leakey discoveries of hominid remains and enabled humans to discover the chain of evolution.

Day 7 Arusha, Tanzania

After breakfast we explore the colourful town of Mto–wa–Mbu for some last–minute pictures and curio shopping. Afterwards we head to Arusha where the tour will end.

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.
