Safari Overview

This extremely good value for money, 10-night safari has been created for those with less time available and those wanting to take advantage of the much cheaper prices offered during the green season.

Privately guided throughout Tanzania and all transfers arranged in Victoria Falls, you will get to witness these bucket list experiences at a fraction of the high season cost.

Begin with two nights at Ngorongoro crater - one of the most breath-taking wildlife havens on earth and the largest caldera in the world. Followed by 3 three nights in south western Serengeti where the Wildebeest have drop their calves by the hundreds of thousands and are soon to start on their migration northwards. A sight to behold!

After transiting in Nairobi for 1 night, the last part of your safari takes you south to Africa’s Adventure Capital – Victoria Falls. Enjoy 3 more nights at one of the best safari lodges in Victoria Falls. The Falls at this time of year are in peak flow and are ever so impressive and powerful. On offer is a multitude of activities from bungee jumping to sedate Zambezi cruises (activity prices not included in package price).

Tanzania seasons in brief:
• June-October is HIGH season. This is when the migration heads to the northern Serengeti, crosses the Mara river to Maasai Mara in Kenya. The most interesting area at this time is the Northern Serengeti.
• December-March is the PICK season. This is when Migration heads south again to the famous Serengeti/Ngorongoro Plains to breed. This area also is known to have large populations of cheetahs and lions.
• November is LOW season but still a good month to visit all the National parks although not for the migration as such, prices are lower and there are fewer vehicles around.
• April/May are the RAINY season and are still reasonable for the migration in Central Serengeti.

Destination Arusha, Tanzania

[Back]

Notes: Day 1

DAY 1
On arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport, you will be met by one of our guides and transferred straight to Arusha town. This is about an hours’ drive from the airport to the African Tulip lodge within the town of Arusha. Depending on your time of arrival you might want to have a look around the town or you can simply relax after your international flights. There are no scheduled activities for this day.

Arusha Tanzania

Resting at the foot of Mount Meru, the sprawling city of Arusha is known as the safari capital of northern Tanzania. It serves as an excellent starting point from which to explore the remarkably scenic surrounding area which includes majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, as well as the Manyara, Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti National Parks.

Overnight: African Tulip

Is an elegant and charming Luxury Boutique Hotel located along Serengeti Road right in the heart of Arusha. A warm and friendly welcome awaits guests who want to experience the best of Tanzanian hospitality. The hotel has been designed with safari travellers, business persons, families, honeymooners, elite and leisure travellers in mind. It has amenities of convenience whilst offering a high standard of luxury.

 


 

Destination Ngorongoro Crater, Zimbabwe

[Back]

Notes: Day 2 & 3

DAY 2
Today you will meet your friendly guide who will be your companion, friend, protector and confident for the next 7 days. He will drive you from the African Tulip into the wilderness on one of the most famous drives through the Great Rift Valley. Head up to the lush Ngorongoro Highlands where forests, monkeys, coffee farms and lush gardens are the norm. In the afternoon relax in your lodge and enjoy a delicious meal with a good glass of wine.

DAY 3
On this day, an early departure to make the best of the day in the Ngorongoro Crater – one of Tanzania’s most famous landmarks. The crater is known for both it’s wonderful scenery and also the varied wildlife that thrives inside. This will be an unforgettable day. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the crater floor.

Ngorongoro Crater

Once a gigantic volcano -- now the world’s largest intact caldera -- The Ngorongoro Crater shelters one of the most breath-taking wildlife havens on earth. Often described as the 8th wonder of the world, the Crater is said to contain the highest density of wildlife in all of Africa. It’s also one of the few places the nearly extinct black rhino still roams free, making it your best opportunity for seeing the Big Five.

Measuring 10 miles wide with walls 2,000 feet high, this UNESCO World Heritage site is an exceptional stage for viewing the circle of life and death in the wild. Its sprawling plains of nutritious short grasses creates the perfect habitat for large herds of zebra and elephants to raise their young, and creates an unbeatable environment for lions and cheetahs to find their next kill.

From sunrise to sunset, the Crater’s sapphire skies dotted with billowy clouds creates an unforgettable backdrop for wildlife viewing all year-round.

Overnight: Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge

Facing the always magnificent sunsets to the west, and located at the highest point on Ngorongoro crater’s entire rim, Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge stands well over half a kilometre above the crater floor and offers unparalleled views across this enormous caldera.

Themed around traditionally circular African houses with conical roofs, and decorated with examples of Africa’s rich tapestry of artistic traditions by way of rich woodcarvings and sculptures, the lodge harmonizes perfectly with its dramatic surroundings. But the drama does not just stop with the great outdoors: it also flows through the split level interiors of the main building which all offer an unsurpassed generosity of space while somehow managing to combine an almost magically welcoming ambience of both warmth and cosiness.

 


 

Destination South Serengeti, Tanzania

[Back]

Notes: Day 4, 5 & 6

DAY 4, 5 & 6
After spending 2 nights in the Ngorongoro your trip continues to the south western Serengeti, for 3 nights at Serengeti Sopa Lodge. The drive is only about 150kms but can take several hours as there is plenty to see along the way. This area consists of the world-famous Serengeti plains. These nutrient rich plains are home to the enormous herds of wildebeest and zebra during the green season (Dec to April) when they drop their young. Wildlife viewing is spectacular as over two million animals will be spread across the open plains. In addition to the large herds, predators (lions, cheetahs and hyenas) are abundant. This is the Serengeti at its finest!

Southern Serengeti

The Serengeti together with Kenya’s Maasai Mara Game Park form Africa’s most famous wildlife park. The image of acacia trees on an endless grass plain epitomises Africa for many, and then add a Maasai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further. The annual wildebeest migration through the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara is the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than 1.5 million animals following the rains. But that is not where the game viewing ends; large prides of lions, elephants and giraffes in grasslands, gazelles and eland to mention but a few.

Serengeti Sopa Lodge

Located on the edge of the escarpment overlooking the plains of the south-western Serengeti National Park, home to many thousands of wild and rare animals, Serengeti Sopa Lodge lies within an area of outstanding natural beauty. An oasis of cool relaxation from the equatorial sun. The lodge allows its guests to experience magnificent sights and enjoy interaction with the land and animals difficult to find elsewhere, whilst at the same time enjoying the highest level of cuisine and hospitality.

 


 

Destination Nairobi, Kenya

[Back]

Notes: Day 7

DAY 7
Sadly, the East African section of your safaris is almost over but there is still a Natural Wonder of the World to enjoy. After breakfast you will be driven to the Seronera Airstrip for a short flight back to Kilimanjaro airport. It’s time now to sadly say goodbye to your private guide. Your one-hour flight to Nairobi departs at around 2 pm. After arriving in Nairobi, you will be transferred to the nearby Ole Sereni Hotel. There is a bit of time if you have energy, for a short tour of nearby places and market, but it is an optional extra. Return to the hotel in time for dinner and a good night’s rest.

Nairobi

Situated along the Nairobi River in beautiful Kenya is the capital city, Nairobi. Africa’s 4th largest city and East Africa's most cosmopolitan, it is a vibrant and exciting place.

In 1899, when the British built the railway line from Mombasa to Uganda they decided to set up camp at "Ewaso Nai´beri", a Maasai name meaning "a place of cool water", and they had no idea that they had just sown the seeds of what would become the largest city in the region. Being unable to pronounce this name, the camp was called "Nairobi".

Today the beautiful green foliage and the fact that Nairobi is the only city with a national park within its boundaries, earned it the dual identity of "the green city in the sun" and "the safari capital of the world".

Overnight: Ole Sereni Hotel

Located just off Mombasa road Ole-Sereni is the only hotel bordering a National Game Park. The title of the hotel is taken from the Maasai name for the area meaning 'place of tranquillity'. Ole-Sereni captures the essence of Nairobi. The hotel offers its guests views of animals in their natural surroundings at the waterhole in the park from the restaurants, bar, swimming pool and other parts of the hotel.

As 'The City Hotel by the Game Park' Ole-Sereni combines the best features of a modern City Hotel and a traditional wildlife lodge where guests can enjoy nature's tranquillity from a very close range. Ole-Sereni is strategically positioned close to the Airport and the city centre, offering world-class facilities and personalized services to business as well as leisure travellers.

DAY 11
Unfortunately, this is the last day of your safari but there is time for one more early morning activity if you feel like it. Around mid-morning, you will be transferred to Victoria Falls International Airport for your departure flight.

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

One of the original natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls is a World Heritage Site and an extremely popular tourism attraction. Known locally as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’, this spectacle is accessible from both Zambia and Zimbabwe and it is an ideal place to combine a game viewing and water sports. There is excellent fishing, a terrifying bungee jump and arguably the best commercial white water rafting in the world.

Overnight: Victoria Falls Safari Lodge

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is renowned as a supreme property at “Wonder of the World” destination Victoria Falls, and is showcased in numerous awards of high repute, including the 2012 Top 10 Resorts & Safari Camps in Africa as voted by the distinguished international Conde Nast Traveler magazine.

The 72-room Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is rich in ambience and offers sublime hospitality. With views of the waterhole and wild African bush, it's hard to beat this prime setting that is perfectly positioned to enjoy activities above and below the Falls. The staff are warm and personable providing faultless delivery to guests during their stay.
