Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Depart UK

Begin your holiday in style with complimentary airport lounge access before your overnight flight.

Day 2
Arusha

Touching down in Tanzania, a private transfer will bring you through the African countryside to Arusha. Here, coffee plantations and rolling foothills frame sweeping views of that great icon – Mt. Kilimanjaro. And, you’ll be treated to the trees’ sweet aromas from the private verandah of your luxury lodge or perhaps on a tasting tour. There’s also pretty lake walks and visits to the next-door art workshop along with your lodge’s farm-to-table dining and crackling fires.

Stay: Arusha Coffee Lodge (Deluxe)

Days 3-4
Tarangire National Park

Bookend the flight out to Tarangire with included shared transfers, arriving into an exclusive tented camp, host to just a dozen suites. Here, private verandahs and an infinity pool look out to the lodge’s very own big-cat waterhole. You’ll also explore on included twice-daily game drives, heading out to horizonless plains dotted with iconic baobab trees to spot everything from elephants and giraffe to leopards and lions. Lastly, whether you’re drinking in the sunsets, relaxing at the thatched lodge or exploring the bush, you’ll be treated to an all-inclusive menu of fine dining and drinks.

Days 5-6
Ngorongoro Crater

With included shared airstrip transfers and a flight north, you’ll arrive into Ngorongoro – a great green coliseum of teeming wildlife. And, you’ll stay right on its very rim, enjoying the finest in 1920s safari chic with your luxury tent complemented by the likes of plush sofas and darkwood furnishings. The all-inclusive fine dining and drinks don’t hurt either, served as the sun sets over the crater below. You’ll also follow your eyes with an included game drive, with your expert guide bringing you among brilliantly green plains to spot zebra, gazelles and buffalo – sustenance for what is Africa’s densest collection of predators, including the famous Maasai lions.

Meals: B L D

Days 7-9
The Serengeti

Your next flight, again sandwiched by included shared transfers, will see you to a true highlight of world travel – the Serengeti. You’ll stay in the only permanent camp in its remote southern region, enjoying privileged access to the famed Great Wildebeest Migration. From mid-December to March these majestic creatures thunder through the camp’s grassland surrounds, tempting the likes of lion and spotted hyena out of the long grass. But, no matter when you travel, you’ll be able to track the migration further afield, your twice-daily game drives bringing you among leopards, black rhinos and bush elephants. Lastly, along with the usual all-inclusive drinks and gourmet dining, there’s everything from stargazing bush walks and cheetah-tracking trips to take part in.

Stay: Sanctuary Kusini (Superior)

Meals: B L D

Days 10-13
Zanzibar

Swapping safari adventure for white-sand relaxation, you’ll fly out to Zanzibar, your private transfer bringing you to your teak bungalow that’s just off one of Condé Nast Traveler’s top-30 beaches in the world. Enjoying half-board indulgences that range from barbecue grills to the very best in just-caught seafood, you’ll relax on the sun-drenched sands or in the superb spa. You might also want to stay active with the gym, floodlit tennis court and marine centre. Whether it’s snorkelling, dives, paddle boarding or kayaking, you’ll uncover technicolour reefs alive with dolphins and turtles. Or, simply grab a bike and cycle to the nearby village for a dose of local culture.
