  • Two peerless wildlife destinations in Tanzania
  • Exceptional Big 5 game viewing at Ngorongoro Crater
  • Specialist Migration camp to see hundreds of thousands of wildebeest
  • Knowledgable and professional driver/guide throughout


This classic tour has been designed for safari travellers pressed for time and wanting value for money. Combining Tanzania’s two best-loved wildlife destinations into an action-packed week, this 4X4 overland safari delivers some of Africa’s easiest Big 5 viewing at the Ngorongoro Crater plus the heart-stopping Serengeti Wildebeest Migration.

Beginning in Arusha, the logistics hub of Tanzania’s northern safari destinations, your 7-day safari opens with a night in the shadow of Tanzania’s second highest peak – Mount Meru – before taking you into the gentle embrace of a forest eco-lodge close to the world’s largest intact volcanic crater known as Ngorongoro. Contained within the steep walls of the Ngorongoro Crater is Africa’s densest concentration of large animals, resulting in almost guaranteed sightings of the Big 5: elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard.

Then it is on to animal concentrations of a different kind. The Serengeti is most famous for its thundering Wildebeest Migration when nearly two million animals take to the hoof and move across the savannah and its rivers, pursued by big cats, wild dogs, hyenas and crocodiles. Your accommodation is a mobile tented camp designed to move with the herds, putting you in front-row seats to various chapters of the Migration depending on the time of year. You could witness the birthing season or the great herds on the move and crossing rivers – all juxtaposed against a teeming multitude of other animals like zebras and buffalos in a beautiful open landscape.

Detailed breakdown

Day 1: In the Shadow of Mount Meru | 1 Night

Up arrow
Arusha, Tanzania

Your safari begins at a quiet country lodge with views of Mount Meru. You are transferred to African View Lodge after your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport in Arusha, located a short drive out of town. Depending on how much time is available, you could take advantage of the lodge’s swimming pool and sun loungers or simply take a cold drink up to the ‘Meru platform’ and toast Africa’s fifth highest mountain with your first sundowner drink – the perfect start to your safari. The lodge has complimentary Wi-Fi and accommodation in the form of neat bungalow-style cottages, each with a terrace and private bathroom.

Days 2-3: The Ngorongoro Crater | 2 Nights

Up arrow

After breakfast at the lodge it is time to head onto the great rolling grasslands of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area where you sit back to the sight of wildlife mingling with long-horned cattle and the red-robed Maasai men who watch over them. Your destination is Endoro Lodge, tucked away on the edge of a bird-filled forest and a short drive from the entrance to the Ngorongoro Crater. Arriving at the lodge for dinner, you can relax and plan for the day ahead: a full-day safari in the Crater complete with delicious picnic lunch. Your guide will be on the lookout for lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and rhino as well as other classic species such as hippo, hyena and zebra. You return to Endoro that evening, ready for another fine 4-course dinner in the restaurant. 

Days 4-6: To the Serengeti | 3 Nights

Up arrow
Serengeti, Tanzania

The Ngorongoro landscape blends into that of the Serengeti as you drive into the national park and onto Serengeti View Camp. Comprising only 10 tented suites, this mobile and light-footprint camp is designed to move around the savannah with the herds, carefully setting up in secluded locations. This gives you unrivalled access to the Migration, whether it is the drama-filled birthing season or the thundering shows of the big herds on the move. You have two days of morning and afternoon game drives to soak up the experience, returning to a traditional tented camp of glowing lamplight and hot-water bucket showers. You sleep in a comfortable bed and have your own bathroom; solar power enables you to recharge batteries and electrical devices. 

Day 7: Time to go home…

Up arrow

After breakfast at Serengeti View Camp you are transferred to the nearby Seronera airstrip for a scheduled flight back to Arusha and Kilimanjaro International Airport, where you connect for your onward travel arrangements and the end of the tour.
