  • Landscape of Serengeti National Park, Adventure World, Fine Travel

    Tanzania’s most spectacular treasures lie before you on this exceptional Tanzania safari adventure through its most scenic landscapes and richest wildlife areas. Lake Manyara, small, yet incredibly picturesque, the vast plains of the Serengeti, one of Africa’s most famous safari destinations and awe-inspiring Ngorongoro Crater is a beautiful natural haven where exceptional wildlife encounters are part of the experience.

    • Day 1: Kilimanjaro – Arusha

      Upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will be met and transferred to Arusha Coffee Lodge where you will spend one night.

      Dinner Included

    • Day 2 & 3: Arusha – Lake Manyara

      After breakfast, you will be transferred to Arusha Airport for your scheduled flight to Manyara Airstrip. On arrival, you will be met and transferred to Lake Manyara Tree Lodge for your first game drive. Lake Manyara National Park offers a wilderness experience in diverse habitats, from its Rift Valley soda lake to dense woodlands and steep mountainsides. As well as a spectacular setting, the park is famous for its unusual tree-climbing lions and the vast elephant herds it was established to protect. The shores of the lake, encrusted with pink flamingo, attract more than 400 species of birds, many of them waterfowl or migrants. Large herds of buffalo, cheetah, Masai giraffe and impala roam the lake shores and the forested valley slopes. A Lake Manyara safari is a fascinating experience as the park also features a ground-water forest, acacia tortilis woodland and hot springs called Maji Moto. You will spend two nights at &Beyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge in an elegant, stilted tree house, which is cradled in the boughs of mahogany trees. Your room is built of timber and makuti (palm fronds) and has a spacious sitting area and viewing deck.

      Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner Included

    • Day 4 & 5: Lake manyara – Ngorongoro Crater

      Enjoy an early morning breakfast before a scenic drive back to the Manyara airstrip. On arrival, you will be met by a representative from &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge who will drive you to the lodge. The Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area, within the Serengeti, is home to more than 30,000 protected animals. It is an area of spectacular beauty and excellent game viewing, a truly unique safari destination in Africa. The Ngorongoro Crater, once a gigantic volcano, is the largest intact caldera in the world. Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth. Black rhino are protected within its rim, giant tusked elephants wander the forests, black-maned lions stalk the grasslands, and flamingos crowd the soda lakes. Spend two nights at &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge. Perched on the edge of the Crater itself, this award-winning lodge is fit for a king and queen. Guests can be forgiven for losing track of which era, or even continent, they are experiencing at &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge. Nowhere else on earth can you wake up amongst all the trappings of an elegant baroque chateau – brocade sofas, gilt mirrors, beaded chandeliers and panelled walls – and be instantly transported into one of the most famous African landscapes with just one glance out the window of the lodge. In this place of dramatic contrasts, where Versailles meets Maasai, anything is possible and the natural luxury of the breathtakingly beautiful setting ensures the dramatic interior of your suite blends perfectly with its stilted thatch architecture.

      Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner Included

    • Day 6 – 8: Ngorongoro Crater – Serengeti National Park

      After breakfast drive back to the Manyara airstrip for your scheduled flight to &Beyond Klein’s Camp/Serengeti Under Canvas or Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp. The Serengeti National Park, meaning “endless plains” in the Masai language, is undoubtedly one of the world’s most celebrated wilderness areas and is an ongoing source of inspiration to writers, filmmakers and photographers. It is Tanzania’s oldest game reserve, renowned for the part it plays in the annual Great Migration, when an estimated three million antelope – mostly wildebeest – migrate to Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. This epic, seasonal journey is a deeply moving experience and a wonderful photographic subject. Here visitors to the park can roam its sprawling plains on exhilarating game drives or hop into a hot-air balloon ride for an once-in-a-lifetime wilderness adventure. The Serengeti National Park is also home to the Olduvai Gorge, where groundbreaking archaeological discoveries have been made. You will spend three nights at either &Beyond Klein’s Camp or &Beyond Serengeti Under Canvas or &Beyond Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp.
