Take to the skies on an adventure through Tanzania’s most famous parks: the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Ruaha and the Selous Game Reserve. The Great Migration, a stopover at Gibb’s Farm, an opportunity to track rare wildlife and a thrilling boat safari down the Rufiji River await!
Arrive in Arusha, Tanzania
Karibu! Welcome to Arusha. A guide will meet you at the airport via your Delta/KLM flight and transport you to your accommodations: a lodge set in a beautiful coffee plantation in the foothills of Mount Meru.
Arusha Coffee Lodge
Relax in stylish and comfortable accommodations in the middle of one of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantations. With a convenient location near the city and airport, Arusha Coffee Lodge is the perfect starting place for your adventure.
Serengeti National Park
A short bush flight brings you directly into the heart of the Serengeti. The next three days will be filled with big cats, the Big Five and – with luck – Great Migration herds. Your seasonal mobile camp brings you as close to the wildlife as possible.
Ngorongoro Crater & Highlands
The world’s largest unbroken volcanic caldera also hosts the densest concentration of large mammals on the planet. You’ll explore its floor over the next two days and search for the Big Five, including the rare black rhino. In the evenings, you’ll retire to Gibb’s Farm, a three-time Travel + Leisure Top Safari Lodge in Africa.
Fresh food, fresh air, and fresh perspectives abound at Gibb’s Farm (a three-time Travel + Leisure Top Safari Lodge in Africa). After full days of exploration, relax in your eco-friendly cottage, set amidst the farm’s lush gardens. Enjoy an outdoor shower, in-room spa treatment, farm-to-table dining, and learning about local culture from the attentive staff.
Ruaha National Park
Rugged, raw and one of the most remote safari locations in East Africa – seeing Ruaha is a rare treat for travelers. It’s the only park in Africa where you can find East African and Southern African wildlife, and a prime location for finding rare species like kudu, wild dog and sable antelope with the help of local guides and expert spotters.
Rest under the shade of a sausage tree and unwind alongside the seasonal Ifiguru sand river. This beautiful tented camp is a relaxing retreat in the middle of the wilderness. Tents are outfitted with en suite bathrooms and deck space perfect for stargazing.
Selous Game Reserve
Three times larger than the Serengeti, brimming with rare creatures, perfect for safari by foot, vehicle and boat – this unique riverine environment provides a gripping end to your adventure. The opportunity to see amphibious species up close is remarkable for safari goers in East Africa, and it pairs wonderfully with a serene walking excursion.
Sand River Selous
These luxurious riverside accommodations fit elegantly into the natural surroundings. Between the panoramic views of the waters and wildlife, the lavish décor, and the stray sounds of hippos and monkeys, this is a hideaway you won’t soon forget.
