You’ll want for nothing at each destination you visit, from the old-world charm of an Arusha coffee estate and the grand manor on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater to the authentic yet opulent tented lodges in the Serengeti and Masai Mara.

Enjoy breakfast with a breathtaking view of Ngorongoro Crater before being transferred to Manyara Airstrip. A short flight takes you into the heart of the Serengeti, one of Africa’s most beloved safari destinations. Your next three nights are spent at the elegant yet ultra-luxurious Mwiba Lodge.
Located on a private reserve in the famous Serengeti National Park, Mwiba makes roughing it in the African wilderness a dream. You’ll stay in upscale tents that use natural elements like rock, wood, canvas and thatch to create a space that’s reminiscent of a traditional safari yet still modern and comfortable.
Spend your stay at Mwiba exploring the wildlife-rich Serengeti on day and night game drives or safari walks. Or if you’re feeling adventurous, go fly-camping and spend the night in the bush under a canopy of stars with the sounds of nature lulling you to sleep. And if you plan your trip at the right time, you’ll be able to witness thousands of gnu move across the plains in the annual Great Wildebeest Migration.
