ITINERARY: Tanzania Explorer - Featuring Zanzibar (14 Days)

Day 01: Arrive Arusha, Tanzania
Upon arrival into Kilimanjaro International Airport and after clearing customs and immigration, you will be met and transferred to the Serena Mountain Village. An imaginative recreation of a traditional Arican Village set in the heart of a coffee estate at the foothills of Mount Meru, with great views of Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro. Just 10 minutes from Arusha and 20 minutes from Kilimanjaro International Airport, the lodge is the perfect basis for a Safari to the National Park and to Kilimanjaro. The Lodge has 38 romantic rondavels and 4 suites, set in beautiful gardens. Every room has a private bathroom with shower and the suites also have baths and a private verandah overlooking the Duluti Lake. The restaurant serves international cuisine. Guests may enjoy a relaxing walk around the lake. Dinner and Overnight at Serena Mountain Village (Half Board)

Day 2: Lake Manyara National Park
Your Safari starts with the drive to Lake Manyara. Nestling at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, the park is recognized for its incredible beauty. In Lake Manyara National Park, the hauntingly beautiful soda lake sprawls on the Rift Valley floor, below the sheer red cliffs of the escarpment. Sometimes pink-tinged with the wings of migratory flamingos, Lake Manyara is home to pelicans and many other bird species. Elephant, hippo, monkey, leopard and bushbuck are found in the unique groundwater forest. Closer to the vast lake, flat-topped acacia trees and open grassland are host to plains species and the famous tree-climbing Manyara lions. You can see many game animals such as Buffalo, Elephant, Giraffe, Impala, hippo and others. Overnight at Lake Manyara Serena.

It is difficult to imagine a more spectacular setting for this lodge - on the edge of the Mto Wa Mbu escarpment, overlooking the Great Rift Valley and the stunning Manyara soda lake. 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 the Lodge - swooping curves are complemented by soft, geometric patterns; striking murals depict bird migration patterns.The circular shape of the buildings is a tribute to indigenous architectural traditions in Tanzania. Beyond the superb standards of hospitality offered, there is a spirit of tranquility that prevails. The lodge is comprised of 67 luxury rooms. Lake Manyara Serena (Full Board)

Day 3: Ngorongoro Crater & Conservation Area
This morning enjoy a relaxing breakfast before driving the short distance to the "eighth wonder of the world", the Ngorongoro Crater. Driving up the slopes of the lush green mountain and arriving at the rim of the crater , the first glimpse takes your breath away. The floor of this collapsed volcano spreads for 102 sq. miles and the walls are 2000 feet high, a truly awesome sight. The crater floor is a virtual "Noah's Ark", inhabited by almost every species of wildlife indigenous to East Africa. It contains a river, several swamps, a soda lake - complete with flamingoes, a forest and open plains. After checking in to your lodge, perched high on the crater rim, and enjoying lunch at the lodge, you’ll depart with your guide and descend to the crater floor for an afternoon of wildlife viewing. In the early evening return to your lodge with time to freshen up and enjoy a drink at
Ngorongoro Crater Lodge.

This is one of the most luxurous lodges in Tanzania, perched on the edge of the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater – a World Heritage site! Inspired in design by the Maasai mud-and-stick manyatta (homestead), three intimate camps comprise romantic suites. Without doubt, the Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is one of Africa's architecturally most spectacular safari lodges. It consists of three camps with Maasai-inspired suites. Each suite's opulent design blends with African art elements in unexpected harmony. The facilities include a central living area, viewing decks overlooking the awesome crater (Full Board)

Inspired by a traditional African village, separate rondavel "huts" house the luxury guest rooms that have their own view of the vast Serengeti plains.
