Itinerary Description:

Discover the stunning landscapes of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro, the most game rich regions in Tanzania, to the pristine beaches of Zanzibar on this 12-day Tanzania private safari. Each new location reveals a new adventure in a journey with few set tours, designed to be experienced at your leisure in ultimate African luxury.

Begin your Tanzania private safari in Arusha for an evening at the Arusha Coffee Lodge. Situated on a working coffee plantation of considerable size, the Lodge has 21 private chalets built on raised wooden platforms. Indulge in fresh coffee and activities around the plantation before continuing your Tanzania private safari at Oliver's Camp in the Tarangire National Park. The camp overlooks Ngorongoro, the Great Rift Valley, and Lake Manyara, making it an excellent location for learning about the delicate ecosystem of the park while enjoying the breathtaking beauty found in Tanzania.

Next, transfer to Lake Manyara for lunch and a Tanzania private safari game drive through the national park before arriving at Gibb's Farm perched on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater. Horseback riding, walking safaris, cycling, and game drives yield sightings of cheetah, lion, wildebeest, and other big game of the Ngorongoro Crater. Additional tours to local Maasai villages, markets, or the spectacular Olduvai Gorge can also be arranged.

Spend the next three nights of your Tanzania private safari in Sayari Camp, located near the Mara River in Serengeti National Park. Because of its position on the river, Sayari has front-row seats to the annual Great Migration where big game grazers trek south across the river from Kenya in search of greener fields. The camp’s remoteness allows for excellent game viewing amid beautiful wilderness, far from any other tourists. Enjoy off and on road driving, bird watching, and the hippo and crocodile population of the river.

Soak up the sun and sand of Zanzibar during the final days of your Tanzania private safari. Matemwe Main Lodge, located on the main island of Unguja, is perfect for discovering the amazing waters of the Indian Ocean and the culture of Zanzibar or for simply enjoying a quiet beach holiday. Snorkeling, diving, kayaking, and village tours are all possible outings to experience at your leisure.
