Under the vast blue skies of East Africa, which are painted with wisps of white clouds tinged pink and gold by the rising sun, you awake to the sounds of the birds in Tanzania, where the Arusha Coffee Lodge welcomes you to Big 5 country.
There is even more to see and do on this 8-day holiday: venture to Lemala Ngorongoro on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, one of Africa's most famous places and a World Heritage Site. The crater’s caldera is filled with about 30 000 animals, making for some of the easiest game viewing anywhere on the continent and the place where you are most likely to see all of the Big 5 in a single game drive.
Then, between December and March, set up camp at Lemala Ndutu at the permanent marsh in Ngorongoro Crater, which boasts the best seats in the house for the Great Migration. From July to October the camp moves to Lemala Mara in the northern Serengeti, near the Mara River. Here, you get an uninterrupted view of the great herds of wildebeest and zebra splashing across the crocodile-infested river.
