Embark on a comfort style lodge safari through Tanzania's famous wildlife reserves

Bursting with wildlife, the national parks of Tanzania will have you continually reaching for your camera. Travelling across the undulating plains of the Serengeti, go in search of the iconic Big Five: lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffaloes. Descending into the dramatic Ngorongoro Crater, a microcosm of famous east African scenery and wild game, lose yourself in the herds of zebra and wildebeest. With so much to see and do, and a comfortable lodge to rest in every night, Tanzania Lodge Safari will certainly be a week to remember.

Itinerary

Make your acquaintance with Arusha, Tanzania's safari capital. Small by African standards, with a pleasant climate and lush green surrounds, the city exudes a friendly, small-town vibe. Check out the Natural History Museum or head for the Ngaramtoni Market for some exceptional handicraft shopping.
Stop by the charming village of Tengeru and learn more about the local Meru community. Then try to spot Lake Manyara's legendary tree-climbing lions and watch out for the herds of zebra, wildebeest and buffalo roaming the surrounding plains of this stunning national park.
Travel to the Serengeti, where golden plains stretch as far as the eye can see. Venture through the wilderness and around rocky outcrops on safari to uncover the many animals that call the Serengeti home. Explore the national park at dawn and dusk, when both predator and prey are most active. Witness firsthand the unrelenting cycle of life on the African savanna. At night, relax in comfort back at the lodge.
Try to spot big cats lazing in the sun during an early-morning game drive. Soak up final views of the sweeping Serengeti plains while enjoying a picnic lunch, before travelling on to the immense Ngorongoro Crater. The following day, descend to the floor of volcanic Ngorongoro on a 4x4 safari. An abundance of species coexist in this area, including gazelle, zebra, buffalo and elephant.
Wind down through the Rift Valley to Tarangire National Park. Embark on a game drive through the acacia woodlands and expansive grasslands to our eco-lodge accommodation, keeping a keen eye out for herds of elephant and sauntering giraffe.
Return to Arusha. Why not get the group together for a final dinner and recount the trip highlights.
