Arrival into Arusha
Arrive at Kilimanjaro airport, meet your car and driver and transfer to Katambuga hotel in Arusha.
into the Serengeti
Take a morning flight from Arusha to Serengeti national park. The next five days will be focused on, arguably, the greatest wildlife show on earth. It takes place from the multi award-winning Bush Rover Camp, situated at fantastic locations, where the herds are most likely to be found. The three seasons within the migration year all bring their own magic, whether crossing the Grumeti river in the West, the Mara river in the North or calving in the South. O/n Bush Rover Camp.
Follow the migration
The primary focus for this breath-taking migration tour is, of course, to follow the adrenalin fuelled herds and their unwanted predator escorts. Whichever time of year you are experiencing the tour, you can expect tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra to be close at hand. The evenings offer a magical night sky and drinks by the camp fire before relaxing in the beautiful mess tent for delicious dining prepared by your private chefs. O/n Bush Rover Camp.
Hunt for big cats
As the great herds gather in each area, the resident predators are joined by increasing numbers of opportunists to take advantage of the bounty. Lion and hyena numbers are prolific at all sites. Leopards, whilst secretive and solitary are regularly spotted and cheetah, whilst present at all sites, are a speciality in the South, during the calving season. O/n Bush Rover Camp.
Each season offers a different experience. December to March, whilst in the South, the herds are calving and hundreds of thousands of young are born. July to October the animals congregate in the North, regularly crossing the Mara river in Tanzania. When the river is high, these crossings become a spectacular and terrifying undertaking with many animals drowning. In the Western Corridor, in June and early July, lines of wildebeest can be seen heading from South to North, crossing the Grumeti river on the way.
the water courses of the Serengeti contain large numbers of hippos and crocs;
some of the latter are huge and spend most of the year hidden in caves and
crevices by the river side. When the Migration crosses each of the main rivers,
the Mbalangeti, the Grumeti and the Mara (in particular), these giants slide
into the water for a short season of plenty. Many wildebeest are attacked by
crocodiles when they cross but many more are drowned in the stampede and the
crocs simply drag the carcasses to the water’s edge to feed.
under mount meru
morning, fly back to Arusha and meet your guide who will transfer you to the Arusha
coffee lodge in the foothills of Mount Meru. Later, enjoy a guided walk
around the plantation to see how the coffee is grown, harvested, dried, and
produced into the aromatic coffee that we drink.
Today marks the end of your safari when you’ll be transferred to the airport for your onward journey.

Make your Tanzania safari even more special by adding on some days at one of Tanzania’s incredible beach destinations. Perhaps the most famous is the beautiful spice island of Zanzibar with world-class beaches and diving. However, there are some hidden gems off the beaten track with few human prints left on the deserted white-sand beaches like stunning Saadani national park, where the bush meets the beach. This is a truly secret palm fringed hideaway.
Few destinations have such an evocative name as Zanzibar. Few know that this Indian Ocean holiday island is in Tanzania and is the perfect complement to any Tanzania safari where you want to mix safari and beach. The UNESCO world-heritage site of historic Stone Town is a heady mix of cultures from Arabia and India with stunning architectural remnants and superb bazaars. This town has its own annual music and film festivals which attract acts and visitors from around the world. From here, head to the north or east coast to relax on world-class beaches and indulge in some fabulous diving and water sports from The Zanzibari boutique hotel.
Safari & Beach
Fancy relaxing at the beach following your Tanzania safari but want something away from it all? Then choose Saadani National Park, the only coastal wildlife park in Tanzania where the bush meets the beach. A place where you can swim in the Indian ocean looking back at vervet monkey and surrounding bush full of wildlife and even a marine park where green turtles hatch. Head out on game drive or foot and boat safari in the morning and spend the afternoon on a stunning deserted beach back at Simply Saadani Camp.
