The reason Tanzania is such an exceptional safari destination is the amount of space dedicated to conservation and the diversity of its destinations. You have the inland parks and conservancies, with the crater, lakes, endless plains, rivers and hills dedicated to creating a protected space for African fauna and flora to thrive. Then there is the coast and Zanzibar Island. A tropical haven with picturesque white sandy beaches, palm trees and a slow, content pace to life. To top it off, Tanzania is a place of rich history, colourful culture and a welcoming spirit.

This remarkable Tanzanian itinerary combines flagship national parks and a blissful beach retreat. Experience the land, its wildlife, natural beauty, and the warmth of the Tanzanian people. You being your journey with an overnight at Legendary Lodge in Arusha. From there, venture into Karatu where Gibb’s Farm awaits. Based in the foothills of the Ngorongoro Crater, and within an easy distance from Lake Manyara National Park and Lake Eyasi, you can experience something new each day.

Next, the renowned Serengeti beckons. Namiri Plains Camp in the east offers fantastic big cat and general game viewing, intimate dinners under the stars, and beautiful accommodation. Sayari Camp is perfectly located for incredible year-round game viewing but also the Great Migration in season. At the right time of year and with a bit of luck, you can witness the herds’ daring dashes across the Mara River into the Masai Mara. After an incredible safari experience, relax on Zanzibar Island at Zuri Zanzibar. Dive into the azure sea, explore Stone Town’s vibrant streets, or simply bask in the tropical sunshine.

Serengeti, Tanzania

Savour your last morning and breakfast at the beautiful Gibb’s Farm, after which your driver will take you through to Manyara Airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Seronera Airstrip. Here you’ll meet your guide for a quick road transfer to your Serengeti base for the next three nights, the beautiful Namiri Plains Camp.

Take a moment to settle into your tent, savour that ‘wow’ moment when you first lay eyes on the room and the view of the endless Serengeti plains outside. High tea snacks and your appetite should be ready by then. Head to the main lodge area to enjoy the spread of sweet and savoury eats before heading out for your first Serengeti game drive.

Day 8-10: The Serengeti Adventure Continues | 3 Nights

Up arrow
Serengeti, Tanzania

You’ve had a taste of safari in the eastern Serengeti and likely experienced some incredible big cat sightings. We always recommend a minimum of three nights in this extraordinary wilderness, but this brief taste of safari will leave you yearning for more. That’s why we have designed this itinerary to double your time in the Serengeti, allowing you to explore both the eastern and northern regions and really sink into the wonderful routine of life on safari.

After a final breakfast at Namiri Plains, your guide will take you through to Seronera Airstrip for your flight to Kogatende Airstrip. A guide will be waiting to meet you and drive you to your next stop, Sayari Camp. Located in the remote northern Serengeti, Sayari provides a true safari on the great wildebeest migration route with access to several river crossing points. The herds pass through the northern Serengeti from approximately May to July.

An optional, yet not to be missed add-on while in the Serengeti is a hot-air balloon safari. Truly a magical experience floating over the savannah as the sun peeks over the horizon and concludes with a champagne breakfast out in the bush. This activity is best done while at Sayari, as the camp is closer to the launch site than Namiri Plains Camp.

Zanzibar, Tanzania

We cannot say that by now you will have had your fill of safari, as that’s unlikely ever to be the case. However, the trip isn’t over yet and you can look forward to a different sort of incredible as the white sandy beaches of Zanzibar Island await!

Bid farewell to the wonderful staff at Sayari as you head back to Kogatende Airstrip. From here you board your flight to Abeid Amani Karume International Airport in Zanzibar. A driver will meet you on arrival for your road transfer to the beach resort, Zuri Zanzibar. Look forward to four nights here to relax, slow down and soak in some tropical sunshine. Zuri is idyllically located on a long stretch of private beach extending down the sunset-facing west coast with favourable tidal patterns, ensuring safe swimming conditions all day long.

There is a wide range of activities to enjoy throughout the resort or on the island itself. Head to the water sports centre for snorkelling equipment, diving lessons and beach games like volleyball and pétanque. Book a sunset dhow (traditional sailboat) cruise, snorkelling trip to the Mnemba Atoll, or a fishing trip. Stroll through the hotel’s Spice Garden, take a Swahili cooking class, or plan a day trip to explore the colourful streets of Stone Town.
