One of the best ways to explore the wonders of Tanzania is with your own private 4x4 and a dedicated guide. Staying over at some of the country’s loveliest hotels, you will be able to set your own pace on game drives, lingering at a warthog and her newborn rooting around in the undergrowth or taking the time to track a far-off herd of long-necked gerenuks.
Begin this 8-day tour with a night at the plush Mount Meru Hotel in Arusha, a convenient stayover at the gateway to the northern safari circuit. The Plantation Lodge is your next stop, offering country-style accommodation in beautiful flower-filled gardens overlooking fragrant coffee plantations. While staying here, enjoy a game drive in Lake Manyara National Park, which is renowned for its tree-climbing leopards and lions as well as an impressive variety of big game. You are then chauffeured in your private 4x4 to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area where the mineral-rich floor of the world’s largest inactive volcanic caldera – the Ngorongoro Crater – is home to dense populations of mammals and is arguably the world’s premium Big 5 location.
Your final stop is Serengeti Serena Lodge within the Serengeti National Park. Home to the Great Migration – from May until October – this park is synonymous with the untamed wilds of Africa.
