Tarangire, Tanzania

After breakfast, a leisurely drive takes you from Arusha to Tarangire National Park. The elegant and intimate Chem Chem Lodge is your home away from home for the next 3 nights. Nestled perfectly between Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Park, Chem Chem is perfectly situated to offer guests thrilling wildlife and cultural experiences in one of Tanzania's lesser-visited safari destinations.

Peaceful game drives and slow guided walks through the private concession give you the opportunity to truly soak in every detail of this gorgeous place. From witnessing the famous tree-climbing lions and watching herds of elephants go about their day to sipping on sundowners as the last rays of light disappear on the horizon. And if you have the time, you won't regret taking to the sky on a hot-air balloon safari, enjoying a different perspective of the Great Rift Valley below.

The highlight of your stay at Chem Chem Lodge will undoubtedly be the fascinating insight you gain into the local culture. Your itinerary includes a Maasai village visit, where you'll meet the chief and other community members, as well as participate in a Maasai boma experience. The fun doesn't end there, as a Barabaig cultural experience is also on the cards. The Barabaig are a semi-nomadic tribe and it's rare to get a glimpse into their world. Interacting and learning from the Barabaig people promises to be a vivid and transformative encounter.

Up arrow

One last breakfast at Chem Chem sees you off as you head to the airstrip. A chartered flight takes you to Mwiba airstrip, where a short drive ends at the entrance to Nyasi Migrational Camp. The elegant mobile camp offers a traditional under-canvas safari experience akin to those of the golden age. But while the aesthetics are timeless, you'll have access to every modern comfort you could need. As well as an unbeatable location with front-row seats to nature's grandest show—the Great Wildebeest Migration.

Nyasi moves with the Great Migration, ensuring that guests get to witness this amazing phenomenon. When not watching thousands of wildebeest and zebra make their way across the Serengeti, your private guide will take you on game drives through the untamed plains in search of the wildlife that call the area home. Night game drives and walking safaris are also available at Nyasi, offering different perspectives on the Serengeti's vast wilderness.

During your stay at Nyasi, you'll visit the Datoga tribe and get to savour meaningful interactions while learning more about their culture. And as they consider themselves to be the oldest tribe in Tanzania, there is a wealth of knowledge to be shared.

Day 8 – 10: Ultra-Private Getaway | 3 Nights

Serengeti, Tanzania

Eat a hearty breakfast before heading off to the final stop on your journey. A leisurely ride takes you to Mwiba Lodge in the southern Serengeti. Ultra-private and uber-modern, Mwiba is a luxury lodge set discreetly among gigantic boulders overlooking a rocky gorge of the Arugusinyai River in its own private 52,000-hectare (130,000 acre) reserve. This heavenly retreat is the perfect way to end your tour of Tanzania's Northern Circuit.

Dotted with natural springs, the Mwiba area attracts an abundance of wildlife to its water. Spend your days traversing the concession, getting closer to the game and nature alike on off-road game drives, bush walks, night drives and fly-camping. For a different perspective, a scenic helicopter flight over the reserve provides incredible views of the wilderness below. After a day of exploration and adventure, head back to the lodge for a dip in the pool or hot tub before enjoying a delectable meal.

Your experience at Mwiba Lodge is topped off with fascinating cultural outings, including a morning walk with members of the Hadzabe tribe, observing how they silently forage through the bush in a world completely untouched by Western civilization.
