Combining Tanzania’s ‘must-see’ northern game reserves onto one simple itinerary, this seven day safari blends thrilling big game viewing with iconic scenery and cultural notes. You pass through a land of traditional Maasai herders and their villages, exploring game reserves and marvelling at sights ranging from vast herds of wildebeest and big cats to giant volcanic craters and sunset-filled lakes.

Leaving Arusha on the afternoon of the first day, you sit back to watch the northern Tanzanian landscape drift past. The tour opens with the majestic scenery and diverse wildlife of Lake Manyara, followed by game viewing in the Serengeti from a lodge set on the path of the annual wildebeest migration. You then enjoy Africa’s easiest Big 5 viewing in the Ngorongoro Crater before searching for tree-climbing lions and Tanzania’s biggest elephant herds at Tarangire.

An overland tour led by a professional driver/guide, this itinerary is ideal for first-time safari travellers or those looking for a new part of Africa to discover. Accommodation is in the form of friendly and informal lodges complete with facilities like swimming pools, massage therapists, Wi-Fi and outdoor lounges overlooking waterholes.

It is an afternoon start at your pick-up point in Arusha after which your guide heads through gently rolling agricultural land before the road rises sharply into the cooler air of a Rift Valley escarpment and your accommodation for the night: Lake Manyara Lodge.
