You will spend the first couple of days of your safari exploring Tarangire National Park, where you will have ample time to see the park’s magnificent herds of elephants and marvel at the majestic baobab trees, a large proportion of which are more than 1,000 years old. From here you will travel to the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest unbroken caldera, formed 2.5 million years ago. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to some 25,000 animals and is densely populated with predators. It is one of the only places in Tanzania where you can actually succeed in spotting the “Big Five” (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and buffalo), and has East Africa’s largest population of black rhino. En-route to the crater, you will have the chance to learn about one of Tanzania’s most famous tribes – the Maasai – by visiting a local Maasai village. The wildlife excitement continues as you head into the Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti is Tanzania’s oldest national park, and one of its most popular; it is no surprise that it is also a World Heritage Site. The park owes its name (which means “endless plains” in the Maasai language) to the southern plains, and it is in this part of the Serengeti that you will be based for 2 days and end the safari portion of your itinerary. With your head bursting with the amazing wildlife images of the past 6 days, you will leave the dusty roads and ever-surprising Tanzanian bush behind you as you fly to the Indian Ocean island of Zanzibar for the remainder of your holiday. Here you will have time to reflect on all you have seen and experienced, relax on the beach or at the pool, and take advantage of numerous optional activities, such as visiting Stone Town or taking a dhow cruise for some excellent reef snorkeling.

Each property is completely individual in its design and operated around the philosophy of “Luxury, naturally.” As part of the company’s commitment to low impact, high-quality tourism, there are never more than 15 cottages or tents in any lodge/camp.
