Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive in Arusha, Tanzania

Overnight

Mount Meru Hotel

Modern comforts, a variety of dining options, a beautiful pool and a convenient location near Arusha airport – Mount Meru Hotel is one of the best places to relax before your journey into the wild.

Days 2–3

Eastern Serengeti Nature Refuge

Take a short, scenic flight to a private nature refuge in the eastern Serengeti. Hike through the refuge by day to experience the land as it was thousands of years ago, listen to a Maasai storyteller share the legends of her people, and spot nocturnal wildlife by moonlight on a night drive.

Overnight

Eastern Serengeti Nyumba

Wake up to the sweeping views of the eastern Serengeti ecosystem’s remote savannah. After a day of adventure, you’ll appreciate the comforts of the camp—and a hot shower in your en suite bathroom. Enjoy a hearty dinner prepared fresh from local ingredients, and discuss the day’s excitement with your fellow travelers and attentive staff.

Days 4–5

Serengeti National Park

Head for the iconic Serengeti, where acacia trees and granite kopjes dot the seas of waving grass. The Serengeti offers everyday opportunities to spot Tanzania’s most impressive wildlife—including big cats—and witness dramatic moments in the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebras.

Overnight

Serengeti Nyumbas

These seasonal camps are strategically located across the Serengeti to place you at the center of migrating wildlife. Relax with spacious tents, comfortable beds, and en-suite bathrooms, as sounds of the surrounding wildlife fill your ears. And no need to worry—with eco-friendly features like solar lighting, your stay won't harm the landscape.

Days 6–7

Ngorongoro Crater

Just 10 miles wide, Ngorongoro Crater was formed from a collapsed volcano. It’s now a self-sustaining ecosystem with the densest predator population in all of Africa. Camping on the Crater’s rim offers you early morning access to its wildlife-filled floor before any other safari-goers.

Overnight

Ngorongoro Nyumba

Set on the eastern edge of the Ngorongoro Crater’s rim, this Nyumba offers the best possible access to the Crater—all within a remote, private setting. With temperatures as low as 40 degrees at this camp, you’ll want to remember to bundle up. But don’t worry: our chefs will treat you to a traditional Tanzanian meal to warm you up.

Day 8

Depart Tanzania

Head to Arusha, where you’ll enjoy a farewell lunch at Arusha Coffee Lodge. Relax in a day room before your flight home.
