This sensational 13-day safari tour showcases four of Africa’s most exquisite destinations: Tarangire, the Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti and Victoria Falls. Not only will you be privy to awe-inspiring game viewing, you will also enjoy some of the most luxurious and opulent safari accommodation in Tanzania and Zambia.
Kick off your holiday in the beautiful Tarangire, a hidden gem and often-overlooked wildlife park in northern Tanzania. It is home to all the big predators, buffalo and giraffe, but probably best known for its tree-climbing lions and massive herds of elephant. You will stay at the intimate and perfectly formed Little Chem Chem, the pioneers of ‘slow safaris’ – instead of driving around looking for game, Chem Chem’s guides will drive out into the bush, park, wait and let the animals come to you.
Then you will move to a glamourous safari lodge located on the rim of the world’s biggest inactive volcanic caldera. Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is set in a breath-taking location with mind-blowing views over the crater. Here you will see thousands of large mammals, including the Big 5 (elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo). The lodge’s luxurious suites feature en suite bathrooms with chandelier-lit bathtubs and showers, and incredible views from private viewing decks.
Next stop: ‘The Land that Moves on Forever’, also known as the world-famous Serengeti National Park. Tanzania’s flagship park is home to one of the biggest concentrations of wildlife on Earth and centre stage for the Great Wildebeest Migration, our planet’s most colossal land mammal migration. Settle in at the popular Serengeti Under Canvas, a luxury mobile tented camp that moves with the Migration across the plains. If you travel between about June and October, you will have front-row seats to one of Nature’s biggest spectacles.
Culminate your African safari at one of Zambia’s most indulgent and contemporary lodges, situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River. Thorntree River Lodge offers the perfect final chapter to your safari, a tranquil retreat to spend a relaxing few days after all the action-packed wildlife encounters in Tanzania. And thanks to Thorntree’s excellent proximity to Victoria Falls, you can easily come face to face with the biggest waterfall in the world.
