Dates & Prices

Classic Tanzania takes you on safari to four of Tanzania's top game viewing areas: Lake Manyara, home of the tree climbing lion; the always impressive Ngorongoro Crater, world-renowned Serengeti National Park and Tarangire, famous for its large herds of elephants.

Game viewing is sure to be outstanding throughout the safari, so be ready to see the Big Five and more.

Along the way, your accommodations are in luxury five star lodges and tented camps. Lake Manyara Kilimamoja and Ngorongoro Oldeani Mountain Lodge are set in ideal locations with stunning views all around. Ole Serai Luxury Camp and the new Ole Serai Kuro Tarangire tented camp may be tented, but are far from "roughing it". These spacious tents are much more like luxury rooms with canvas walls, complete with large beds, proper bathrooms with showers (and plenty of hot water) and large verandahs perfect for an afternoon of relaxation.

We can easily build an extension to Kenya, Zanzibar, Victoria Falls or even South Africa to this trip.

Day 1  Arrive Arusha
Welcome to Tanzania! Upon arrival in Arusha (Kilimanjaro) this evening, you will be met and transferred to your hotel. Sleep well tonight. Tomorrow you depart on a most exciting safari.

Arusha Coffee Lodge



Lying on the gentling rolling foothills that cascade down from the ever-present Mount Meru is the bustling and vibrant town of Arusha. It is here on the outskirts of this town, hidden amongst one of Tanzania's largest coffee plantations, that you will find Arusha Coffee Lodge, a perfect haven for relaxation either before or after any African safari.

Comprising of 30 Plantation Houses - inclusive of 12 Plantation Suites - that radiate out into the evergreen coffee fields, Arusha Coffee Lodge has been designed around the original landowner's home that dates back to the early 1900's.

The theme of coffee is never far away at Arusha Coffee Lodge, and this is never more evident than in the Plantation Suites where the theme coffee bean permeates even the interior designs of both the main bedroom as well as the beautifully appointed en-suite bathroom.

The homely feel of the Lodge is by no means accidental as the origins of the homestead continue to emit glimpses of times-gone-by. The friendly and personable staff help create an ambiance that continues to draw appreciation from all those who visit and stay.

Within the main Plantation House reside an 'a la carte' restaurant, an intimate bar and a cozy lounge, all of which possess inviting open log fires that will fill the cool night air with a comforting warmth and a welcoming glow.

With two boutiques, an enclosed and intimate swimming pool and a popular garden terrace, Arusha Coffee Lodge encourages exploration and discovery at every turn.

From the industrious coffee pickers gathering in the harvest to the aromas of the morning brew emanating from the main Plantation House as breakfast is being prepared, Arusha Coffee Lodge is full of sensory experiences that revitalizes the body and soul for the adventures and excitement that lie ahead.
