Day to day Itinerary
1 Night in Arusha
Arusha in Africa is your gateway to Tanzania’s treasure trove
The charming town of Arusha rests beneath the mighty gaze of Mount Meru and is an ideal base to explore Tanzania’s Northern Safari Circuit. It’s hard to think of another place in the world that is in close proximity to such a variety of national parks and game reserves! Here, the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater are only a flight away from Arusha’s beloved coffee plantations.
2 Nights in Lake Manyara
Discover more about Lake Manyara
Day 2 & 3
Characterised by cliffs, verdant acacia woodlands, open savannahs, and reflective waters, Lake Manyara’s diverse landscape is home to an array of wildlife. Its shores see hippos wallowing in its alkaline waters alongside flamingos picking at succulent treats hidden beneath the surface. Zebra and giraffe rest languidly on the open grassland, ears pricked for any sign of movement from the woodlands hiding the elusive leopards and tree-loving lions commonly found in the area.
2 Nights in Ngorongoro Crater
Discover more about Ngorongoro Crater
Day 4 & 5
Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater has been part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) since 1973. Aside from boasting a fertile floor and thus an abundance of wildlife (notably the Big 5), the crater is also the only intact caldera left in the world. Fun fact: many speculate—before Ngorongoro erupted—it would have been higher than the mighty Kilimanjaro.
3 Nights in Serengeti National Park
Discover more about Serengeti National Park
Day 6, 7 & 8
Stretching itself across 1.5 million hectares of land, the Serengeti National Park is known for its impressive population of wildlife—most notably the Big 5. It is perhaps more renowned for being part of the stage on which the annual Great Migration plays out. Each year, over two million wildebeest, a fair number of gazelles, and small following of zebra seek better grazing areas by migrating south in the Serengeti, then west and north into the Maasai Mara before eventually returning.
3 Nights in Zanzibar Archipelago
Discover more about Zanzibar Archipelago
Day 9,10 & 11
The Zanzibar Archipelago is made up of a chain of islands in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania. Centuries ago, the island was an important area for the spice trade, first with the Arab world since the eleventh century, before falling under the rule of Arab sultans who reigned over the islands for a number of years, integrating with the local Swahili.
