Anticipation is your best friend as you get acquainted with some of East Africa’s most spectacular areas — the Serengeti National Park, Lake Manyara National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater. Savour the rich variety of wildlife they host, from flamboyant flamingos to majestic elephants to swift cheetahs, on your Tanzania luxury safari.

  • Be constantly teased and surprised by Mother Nature – seeing the queen of the jungle shinny a tree is peculiar enough, but witnessing a pack of lionesses and cubs perched atop a sturdy bush is quite something else
  • Lose track of time but find yourself one with nature in the monumental Rift Valley, the vast Serengeti plains or the awe-inspiring Ngorongoro Crater
  • Make your experience a truly exceptional one with each sumptuous safari lodge and tented camp located right in the heart of the action and serving as an extension to game viewing
  • Travelling time is kept to a minimum despite the impressive distances with the inclusion of three air transfers — that means you’ll have more time for immersive experiences such as interacting with local communities and nomadic tribes or exploring the Olduvai Gorge, dubbed the Cradle of Mankind

Depending on your time of arrival, you might embark on your first safari game drive on this trip.

Lake Manyara National Park offers a wilderness experience in diverse habitats, from its Rift Valley soda lake to dense woodlands and steep mountainsides. Apart from a spectacular setting, the park is famous for its unusual tree-climbing lions and the vast elephant herds it was established to protect.

Day 3 – Lake Manyara National Park

Enjoy a leisurely bike ride through the nearby Mayoka community with an expert andBeyond guide. Cycle through this bustling village and interact with the friendly, local people, perhaps even crossing paths with the nomadic Mang’ati tribe (also known as the Datooga tribe) adorned with traditional animal skin cloaks, textured skirts and colourful beads.

Peddle on a picturesque route to the lakeshore, where you can spot bright pink flocks of flamingos.

Make sure you have a hearty dinner before heading out for your evening game drive; andBeyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is one of the few lodges in Tanzania which offers guests the opportunity to encounter sightings of nocturnal predators.

Enjoy the panoramic views from your Suite that sits right on the edge of the largest intact caldera in the world.

Take a land transfer to Manyara Airstrip (might be shared with other property guests if they are on the same flight) for your shared air transfer to Lobo Airstrip.

The Serengeti National Park, meaning “endless plains” in the Maasai language, 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 Game Reserve.

Depending on your time of arrival, you might go on an evening game drive.

Day 7 and 8 – Serengeti National Park

Each day brings two game drives and each brings something new as such is the nature of Mother Nature, who teases and surprises, constantly re-minding you who’s in charge.

In between game drives, take things leisurely — a really apt word to describe your day as you doze off into a cat nap reading about adventures of past and current explorers on a full stomach.
