Day 2  SAT/MON Arusha-Lake Manyara | Meals: BLD
The morning is at leisure until you meet your fellow travelers later this afternoon and begin the drive across the Masai Steppe into the Great Rift Valley and Lake Manyara. The views are particularly breathtaking here and your lodge's location provides stunning panoramas of the Valley.

Lake Manyara Serena Lodge

It is difficult to imagine a more spectacular setting for Lake Manyara Serena Lodge - on the edge of the Mto Wa Mbu escarpment, overlooking the Great Rift Valley and the stunning Manyara soda lake. Tree-climbing lions are but one lure. The extraordinary birdlife has made this place world-renowned among ornithologists, who come to observe the masses of pink flamingos and great birds of prey.

The abundant birdlife inspired the design of Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge - swooping curves are complemented by soft, geometric patterns; stylish murals depict bird migration patterns. The circular shape of the buildings is a tribute to indigenous architectural traditions. Beyond the superb standards of hospitality offered, there is a spirit of tranquility that prevails.

Day 3  SUN/TUE Lake Manyara-Serengeti | Meals: BLD
Spend the morning on a game drive in Lake Manyara National Park. Thanks to the wide variety of habitats found inside the park, game is plentiful. Be on the lookout for the graceful impala, the mischievous baboon and much more. Return to the lodge for lunch and then continue your drive to Tanzania's most famous park, the Serengeti.

Serengeti Serena Lodge

Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge is set high on a hill with breathtaking vistas of sweeping grasslands and the unspoiled wilderness landscape of the Serengeti plains. Big game feed in full view of the lodge. The Serengeti is a natural paradise and home to one of the greatest wildlife spectacles on earth - the annual migration of millions of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle.

The lodge design is simple but stunning. Inspired by a traditional African village, separate rondavel "huts" house the luxury guest rooms that have their own view of the vast Serengeti plains. From the overall impression to the smallest detail, the lodge is rich in local atmosphere created by indigenous handicrafts and art.

A delightful water feature runs through the main public areas, creating a natural source of waterborne plants and provides a home to many indigenous species of reptiles, amphibians and birds.

All 66 guest rooms have private balconies with views of the Serengeti Plains

Day 4  MON/WED Serengeti | Meals: BLD

The predators are found here as well and you will almost certainly spot lion and cheetah during your stay.

Day 5  TUE/THU Serengeti-Ngorongoro | Meals: BLD
This morning, game drive your way across the plains, stopping for a picnic lunch before continuing to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Arrive at your lodge early this afternoon. Later visit a nearby Masai village and learn about the Masai way of life.

Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge

As if in a land before time, Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge is built into the rim of a dormant and collapsed volcano (known as a caldera), the plant and ivy-covered native stone blending masterfully with its surroundings. Close by lies the Olduvai Gorge, the "birthplace of man". Today the volcano and surrounding landscape are part of a vast conservation area inhabited by the Masai tribe, as well as an extraordinary variety of big game and birdlife. Most guest rooms have private terraces with views of the crater floor where countless animals make their home.

Day 7  THU/SAT Ngorongoro-Tarangire | Meals: BLD
Your journey takes you to Tarangire today. Thanks to the permanent water supply of the Tarangire River, the park is a dry-season haven for huge herds of wildebeest, zebra and other plains game. During your afternoon game drive, enjoy the vistas dotted with majestic baobab trees.

Tarangire Sopa Lodge

Built to blend in with the vastness of its surroundings, Tarangire Sopa Lodge lies hidden among the kopjes, ancient baobab and grasses of the Tarangire National Park - home to the greatest concentration of elephants in Africa. Many can be seen around the lodge, allowing visitors a close encounter.

Built on different levels, the main public area building offers an extremely cool respite from the outdoor heat as soon as you step into the reception.

With a perfumed towel and a chilled welcome drink in hand, you suddenly become aware of the sheer size of the lobby with its glistening marble floors, colourful hand-woven carpets, and an incredibly high roof. From here a short flight of steps takes you up a level and into the lounge and bar with floor to ceiling windows, an outdoor terrace where you can enjoy an evening sundowner and, later perhaps, a game of pool in the area behind the bar.

While our circular guest suites with their high, conical roofs fan out to either side of the public areas, it is worth mentioning a word of caution here. Because the lodge is not fenced in any way, wild animals are at liberty to come and go as they please and transits to your room and back might be – but rarely – delayed by an elephant or two. This is the only reason our guards will insist on taking you to and fro at night.

Once inside the coolness of your room, you will be delighted at its space and airiness, and also the views from its sheltered veranda. With its mini-bar, two double beds and an extremely spacious, well appointed bathroom, you can only wish that you were staying an extra night.

  • 75 spacious rooms, all with a private lounge on entering with a mini bar. Each room has 2 queen size beds with a mosquito net around them.
    • 4 of these rooms are suitable for the physically challenged.
    • 4 interconnecting rooms suitable for families.

Leave Nairobi on a very early flight to Victoria Falls today. Welcome to Victoria Falls! On arrival, you will be assisted to your transfer to your luxury accommodations on the shores of the Zambezi River. Later this afternoon, why not take a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River?

Victoria Falls River Lodge

Enjoying a quiet riverside setting in the magnificence of unspoilt African wilds, Victoria Falls River Lodge is close enough to Victoria Falls for guests to easily access and enjoy all the historical town's key activities and sights - most notably the iconic Victoria Falls itself.

Built on raised decks, the 13 luxurious tents are well-spaced and air-conditioned. Constructed of canvas, glass and wood each extends out onto a private deck with its own plunge pool and boasts uninterrupted panoramas of river and natural bush. Stylish and spacious, the rooms are a fascinating fusion of European and African decor, with clean lines, soothing hues and a fresh earthy feel.
