Travel Itinerary

Highlights you can experience

Destination 1: Arusha

You’ll begin your African adventure in the town of Arusha under the shadows of Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro. Enjoy time at a Central Market that sells traditional Masai styled clothing and handwoven baskets. As you walk busy streets, witness the colourful dala dala buses as they weave by Masai herders moving cattle along dirt roads. Enjoy a bite to eat, and perhaps try the local dish Pilau as you relax your way in to African life.

Destination 2: Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is the next divine African destination on your trip. Today, safari between baobab trees that forest this immense ecosystem. To complement the wildlife that live here, which includes Tanzania’s largest elephant population, views of rolling hills and granitic ridges accompany you on a safari that traverses this special park. By the banks of the Tarangire River you’ll get a closer look at hippos cooling off in muddied, predatory waters.

Destination 3: Lake Manyara National Park

You’ll love Lake Manyara National Park, a wildlife region that’s home to 400 bird species. A large area of the park is covered by the soda lake that acts as a breeding ground for flocking flamingos and waterfowl, in the right season. Giraffes, hippos, wildebeest, and a whole lot more provide you with added animalistic delights. Safari game drive through the park and look up at the trees to see if you can see a sleeping lion.

Destination 4: Central Serengeti

Be thrilled by the natural habitats of Serengeti National Park as you safari game drive beyond thick bush, swamps, and kopjes, a metamorphic rock that’s formed from volcanic ash. It’s here that you’ll have the opportunity to spot the elusive leopard or prides of lions looking to feast on journeying wildebeest as they move across Africa on a great migration.

Destination 5: Ngorongoro Crater

Your next stop takes you on a safari game drive into a crater. Deep within one of the world’s largest calderas, Ngorongoro is a disparate land of swamps, lakes, and shortgrass plains. The acacia trees here punctuate the land and provide birders with opportunities to spot the superb starling. The black rhino and densest population of lions to be found in Africa, as well as 25,000 other animals, are ready to be discovered by you 600 metres inside this natural phenomenon.

Destination 6: Jambiani

Today, you’ll leave the mainland behind and head to Jambiani, a group of thatch-hut villages on the island of Unguja that form part of Zanzibar. A nice change of pace, you’ll be welcomed upon arrival by warm locals, spotless beaches, and clear waters brimming with marine life. Step back and take time to enjoy a snorkel or scuba dive in this exotic setting. Enjoy fresh fish at a superb eatery by the Indian Ocean as you look out to spot the mysterious sperm whale. A tour to learn of Zanzibar’s booming spice trade will scintillate the senses.
