  • Classic northern Tanzania safari itinerary

  • Immerse yourself in the Serengeti Wildebeest Migration
  • Professionally guided in a small vehicle with en suite accommodation throughout

Travelling overland between three of Tanzania’s most rewarding safari destinations, this tour has been designed to deliver a heavyweight cast of wildlife with an Indian Ocean finale. Beginning with a night overlooking Arusha National Park and looming Mount Meru, your safari also takes in a full day in the Ngorongoro Crater where you sit back to some of Africa’s easiest Big 5 viewing before heading for the Serengeti and a mobile camp that follows the Wildebeest Migration around the rolling, predator-filled grasslands. With hundreds of thousands of animals on the hoof, it is one of nature’s most dramatic events and your camp ensures you front-row seats.

Then it is a short flight and you are in Zanzibar, the Spice Island, and dipping your toes in the warm Indian Ocean at an intimate resort, complete with beachside bungalows and hammocks slung between palm trees. Relax on the beach, by the swimming pool or head off on a local excursion and visit historic Stone Town, the Jozani Forest or a fragrant spice estate.

Competitively priced and offering excellent value for money, the overland safari section of the tour is led by an experienced driver/guide in a 4x4 with no more than five clients, ensuring everyone gets a window seat. Accommodation is in the form of sister camps owned where you enjoy comfortable chalet and tented accommodation, always with a private bathroom and a view.

Day 1: A night in Arusha

Arusha, Tanzania
Detailed breakdown

Day 1: A night in Arusha | 1 Night

Up arrow
Arusha, Tanzania

Your Tanzanian safari begins at Arusha’s Kilimanjaro International Airport where you are met and transferred to African View Lodge, a 30-minute drive from the airport and set on the edge of Arusha National Park. The lodge has a swimming pool and a massage service for those who need to unwind after a long-haul flight. Perhaps the best way to relax here is to order a cold drink from the bar and settle down in the ‘tree-house’ and toast Mount Meru, Tanzania’s second highest mountain, as part of your first night in Africa. There's also complimentary Wi-Fi to let everyone back home know that you've arrived safely.

Days 2-3: Into the Crater | 2 Nights

Up arrow
Lake Manyara Road, Karatu

It's over land to the Ngorongoro Crater after breakfast and a drive through a scenic Rift Valley landscape ensures plenty of wildlife to see as you go. A packed lunch is enjoyed on the way to Endoro Lodge, set in the forests of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. There may be time to stretch your legs after the long drive – the lodge has several river trails as well as bicycles for hire – and you can settle in to your chalet, complete with a fireplace, veranda and an en suite bathroom with outside shower (perfect for enjoying the Milky Way on cloudless evenings).

The next day is spent in the Ngorongoro Crater itself, a steep-walled haven for what is rated as Africa’s densest concentration of big animals. It is said to be among the easiest places on the continent to see the Big 5 (elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion and leopard), and is also home to hippos, hyenas and flocks of pink flamingos.

Days 4-6: The Wildebeest Migration | 3 Nights

Up arrow

Today brings another scenic drive with a packed lunch. There's game viewing all the way as you cross the grasslands of the Ngorongoro and into the Serengeti National Park. Your accommodation is a solar-powered mobile tented camp. Here, you're ensured front-row seats to the Wildebeest Migration by following the herds as they move through the Serengeti. Serengeti View Camp may be located in the south, centre or north of the park depending on the time of year but with an expert guide, a 4x4 and two full days at your disposal, you're sure to enjoy excellent wildlife sightings. Lying under thorn trees, each tented suite at Serengeti View Camp has a private bathroom and a shaded seating area from which to enjoy those endless Serengeti views.

Days 7-9: Palm trees and coral reefs | 3 Nights

Up arrow

Today begins with breakfast on the Serengeti savannah and ends with dinner overlooking the Indian Ocean. A scheduled charter flight from the Serengeti takes you to Zanzibar, where you are transferred to Pongwe Beach Hotel, set on the white sands of Pongwe Beach on a tranquil Indian Ocean coast. A small and comfortably simple haven of just 20 thatched rooms, the resort has a pool and beach bar that overlook a turquoise swathe of ocean protected by an encircling coral reef. Pongwe offers good-old-fashioned relaxation – hammocks and beach loungers – plus internet access and local excursions ranging from spice farm, Jozani Forest or Stone Town tours as well as snorkelling and diving trips.


Day 10: Memories to last a lifetime

Up arrow

After breakfast at Pongwe Beach Hotel, you are transferred back to Zanzibar’s airport for your onward travel arrangements and the end of this tour.
