Sit back and watch the northern Tanzanian landscape unfold as you travel between its most iconic wildlife destinations, safe in the hands of an experienced driver/guide. The tour opens with sweeping Rift Valley views from your Lake Manyara lodge before you explore the teeming Serengeti savannahs, home to the famous Wildebeest Migration from about November to June as well as stunning year-round big game.
The oversized drama continues as you visit the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera. It is long-extinct and its grassy crater floor is now home to Africa’s densest concentration of large mammals including the Big 5 – lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo - which are usually all seen in a single day. This is one of the easiest places in Africa to tick off all of the Big 5. Then it is off to ‘Land of the Giants’ – Tarangire National Park – where you will be on the lookout for the largest elephant herds in the country plus big cats and enormous baobab trees, said by local folklore to have been planted upside down by hyenas.
Four nights at Karafuu Beach Resort in Zanzibar finish off the tour. A fight from Arusha takes care of what would be a long road journey and you have three full days to do as much or as little as you please at a resort with a reputation for its scuba diving. Accommodation at Karafuu is as it is all through the tour: comfortable and en suite at large to medium-sized lodges with facilities such as swimming pools, spa treatment rooms and complimentary Wi-Fi.
