Arusha to Serengeti National Park
Enjoy game drive in Ngorongoro areas en-route to Serengeti National Park.
Arusha – Serengeti National Park
We expect you to be in your hotel or residence around Arusha before the start of the tour. Early in the morning at 07:00AM, our tour guide will visit your hotel in Arusha and brief you on some of the amazing experiences that lie ahead. We then set out on this wonderful journey together. Enjoy a full day game drive by evening hours, your camera will surely be full of different great wildlife photos. After witnessing the African sunset, you will be driven to your accommodation for dinner and overnight.
You won’t find many better national parks in Africa than the Serengeti, which has few rivals when it comes to both the numbers and variety of animals. Track down the annual migration of wildebeest and zebra. Enjoy the vast horizons that are perfect for spotting predators (especially lions, leopards, cheetahs and spotted hyenas) and their prey (buffaloes, impalas and kongoni), as well as elephants and giraffes. If you’re really lucky you’ll see a hunt, one of the most exhilarating sights anywhere in the wild. And at every turn, revel in its beauty, with flat-topped acacia trees silhouetted against the setting sun, and so many other classic African safari images..
Accommodation in Serengeti
Into Wild Africa Tented Camp
Into Wild Africa is one of the best sites in the Serengeti, hidden deep in the central Serengeti along the Nyabogati River. They are perfectly positioned 8 kilometres deep in the African bush from any road, on the edge of a gorgeous Savannah plain. The river provides year-round water for the animals, excellent protection for the bush, and, of course, thrilling action on the plain. Your Into Wild Africa camping trip will be unlike any other; you will be immersed in the wilderness for a really unique experience.
Nyumbani Serengeti Camp
Nyumbani, the Swahili word for “home,” reveals a deeper meaning as the name of our luxury camp in the Serengeti. After an unforgettable day of exciting game drive in the Seronera plains, it is our pleasure to welcome you to your home away from home. Savor the magic of safari life and our welcoming oasis where earth meets sky in boundless space. Dine in an atmosphere of personalized comfort while surrounded by nature’s limitless grandeur. Drift into restful sleep with the gently hypnotic sounds of the African night.
Chaka Camp is a semi-permanent mobile camp located in the Serengeti eco-system. "Chaka" means, "bush" in Swahili and this is what the Chaka Camp is offering; an authentic and intimate bush experience in the middle of remarkable areas of the Serengeti's pristine wilderness. The Camp moves twice a year to ensure its guests are very well placed to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration
Serengeti – Ngorongoro Crater
Early in the morning after breakfast, today you’ll visit Ngorongoro Crater, one of the most beautiful natural sights in Africa, a place where you’ll experience otherworldly beauty with extraordinary wildlife. Watch as, from above, morning mist rolls up and over the crater rim, and notice how the steep walls suggest a place unlike any other. Down below on the crater floor, explore a lost world preserved in a state of pristine isolation, one that shelters lions and hyenas, elephants and black rhinos, flamingos and golden jackals. There are also forests, hippo- filled lakes, a salt pan and hyena dens, and you’ll never lose the sense that you’ve stumbled into a safari theme park where everything’s wild. In the evening, you will retire back to your accommodation for dinner and overnight
Accommodation in Ngorongoro
Situated only a few hundred metres from the crater’s rim, Rhino Lodge offers easy access to the main gate and road descending into the crater.
Stretching out in two L-shaped rows from the main area are 24 semi-detached rooms set around a central courtyard. Outside each room is a long wooden deck overlooking a stretch of high montane forest. Bright Maasai blankets add a splash of colour to the whitewashed walls.
To freshen up after a long day in the crater, each room has a compact en-suite bathroom with a hot water shower.
As it can get quite cold in the area as the lodge is situated at an altitude of 2,200 metres above sea level, each room has its own wood-burning stove, which staff will light for you on cold evenings. You will also be supplied with hot water bottles that can be filled to keep the cold at bay.
Unpretentiously rustic, the lodge does not overlook the crater itself but enjoys glorious vistas of misty montane forest and distant Mount Oldeani. The well-kept grounds are regularly visited by local wildlife. Elephants, buffalo, waterbuck, zebra, hyena and Marabou storks sometimes wander across the lawns by day.
In the bar/dining-room there are two large fires which are a natural focus where our guests like to meet and exchange stories of the day. Here you can enjoy our delicious African-inspired meals with your group. After dinner our Maasai staff may entertain you with some traditional dancing. The restaurant’s deck looks across the grassland towards the forest, also making it a superb spot for morning coffee.
Farm of Dreams Lodge
The Lodge is located in the tourist town of Karatu on the Western south Slopes of Ngorongoro Crater at the 1,400 feet above sea level; the Lodge sits in a garden of flowers and vegetables. The property offers spectacular sweeping views of the hills and close distant to the Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Eyasi, Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Park.
The warm and cosy rooms overlook the reserve and tropical gardens; the large en-suite bathrooms include WC, shower and washbasins as well as luxurious toiletries. The bedrooms open up to a terrace that is furnished with a table and chairs.
Located on the outer slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater lies Gibb’s Farm. Founded in the 1920s as a coffee plantation, we embrace traditional East African hospitality with our roots extending deep into the land and our heritage here.
An idyllic retreat while exploring the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara national parks, as well as Lake Eyasi, on safari in Tanzania. Recline with a cup of freshly roasted coffee overlooking the Great Rift Valley in lush surroundings.
We encourage our guests to immerse themselves in the rhythms of the farm and enjoy a sense of tranquillity and well-being. Surrounded by the rich traditions of East African life, share in the eternal sense of history and community.
Generations of local families have helped to create a truly authentic, serene and memorable experience here. Share in their lifestyle with activities both on the farm and in the area from long walks to milking our cows…
