Tanzania's northern safari destinations are among the most rewarding on the continent and this 7-day safari takes in the three best: Tarangire; the Ngorongoro Crater; and the legendary Serengeti where your accommodation has been carefully selected to almost guarantee you Wildebeest Migration sightings in season. It is an overland adventure, led by a professional driver/guide and makes use of excellent accommodation throughout, beginning with a country farmhouse outside Arusha where you spend the first night.

It is a tour that will appeal as much to first-time safari goers as seasoned ones: the mix of habitats means a highly diverse range of wildlife and scenery. In Tarangire, you will be on the lookout for red-dust coated elephants and magnificent 'upside-down trees' (Tarangire's signature baobabs) as well as big cats and riverside wildlife. Then it is among the best Big 5 viewing at Ngorongoro Crater, home to the densest concentration of big animals in Africa where it is not unusual to see lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant all in one game drive. The Serengeti ends your experience, three nights at a mobile tented camp that moves around the savannah to set up in the best location for the grand finale to this safari: the wildebeest migration.

Beginning and ending in Arusha, the logistics hub for northern Tanzania, this tour is simple to access and combines easily with a beach holiday in Zanzibar off the Tanzanian coast.

Day 1: A Mountain Sanctuary | 1 Night

Up arrow
Arusha, Tanzania

Your overland safari begins at Arusha's Kilimanjaro International Airport where you meet your guide and settle back for the short drive to Rivertrees Country Inn, a restored farmhouse on the outskirts of Arusha. It makes a great start to the tour: Rivertrees lies on the foothills of Mount Meru and its cottage suites are set along the river or under shady trees. The gardens ring with birdsong and you can sit on your private terrace and soak up the new sounds before sitting down to a candle-lit supper.


Days 2-3: The Ngorongoro Crater | 2 Nights

Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

Ngorongoro Farm House is a charming place in the heart of Tanzania's Ngorongoro Highlands. Set on a working farm, you can expect warm hospitality, comfortable lodgings and delicious farm-to-table cuisine. With its prime location on the outskirts of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, you can easily access the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater.

You can also enjoy activities such as guided walks, visits to the local Maasai village, and game drives to the nearby Ngorongoro Crater. For those looking for a peaceful retreat amidst Tanzania's stunning highlands, Ngorongoro Farm House is the perfect choice.


Days 4 - 6: Journey to the Serengeti | 3 Nights

Up arrow
Serengeti, Tanzania

After breakfast, you continue on to the Serengeti and your accommodation, Ubuntu Migration Camp. A tented camp lying under thorn trees, Ubuntu is a semi-permanent mobile camp that follows the rhythm of the Wildebeest Migration and sets up in the best locations according to the time of year.

You may be in time to see the herds braving crocodile-infested waters as they cross the Serengeti's rivers at mid-year, or catch the Migration's great birthing season in February, a bountiful time for the resident big cats and wild dogs. Morning and afternoon game drives are the focus, your day beginning with early morning tea or coffee or hot chocolate at your tent, and ending with fireside drinks and a 3-course supper. Your tented suite is comfortable, unpretentious and comes with its own bathroom with a hot-water bucket shower.
