Departure

Arrive this evening into Arusha where you will be warmly welcomed. Transfer from Kilimanjaro
Airport with your group.

Accommodations: Rivertrees Country Inn




Northern Tanzania is a relatively small area, so it only takes a brief scenic flight to bring you to a whole new world of cultural interest and natural beauty.

Today we have a flight from Arusha to the eastern Serengeti where we will meet our local guides at the airstrip. We'll then have an introduction to the Nature Refuge: your guide will give you a brief tour and history of the 12,000-acre refuge as you make your way to camp. Enjoy wildlife viewing along the way, one of the tangible results of conservation efforts in the area. After lunch at your Nyumba (safari camp) we will enjoy an afternoon of wildlife viewing in the eastern Serengeti.

Accommodations: Eastern Serengeti Nyumba

Out of some 800,000 Maasai who live in Tanzania and Kenya, the Maasai in the northern parts of Tanzania have perhaps maintained their traditional culture more than any other group. You will have opportunities to meet our Maasai friends nearby.

Today begins with a morning Hike in the Eastern Serengeti Ecosystem—Grab a piece of fruit and some tea before breakfast, and head out to explore! Afterwards, we'll visit a Community Development Project and stop at a school, teachers' housing, or medical dispensary to learn how tourism can impact the community in positive ways through collaboration and understanding.

After a quick lunch at camp, we'll visit a Maasai boma and learn more about Maasai culture before taking in the plains and wilds after dark on a night drive of the Eastern Serengeti Ecosystem.


Accommodations: Eastern Serengeti Nyumba

From the eastern Serengeti ecosystem, head into Serengeti National Park for more traditional wildlife viewing across the world’s most celebrated plains. Today you will have the opportunity to meet with the Enjipai Women's Group, a group of entrepreneurial Maasai women who will help you learn about their craft, their lifestyle, and their community's goals.

After a boxed lunch, we'll spend the afternoon viewing wildlife in the Serengeti before returning to camp to put up your feet after a long day.

Accommodations: Central Serengeti Nyumba

While it is possible to spot all the Big Five animals on this trip, leopard and rhino sometimes prove difficult to track down as they are both solitary and reclusive species. Ultimately, however, wildlife viewing in the Serengeti is never short of spectacular.

We'll spend the morning wildlife viewing in the Serengeti: there are few things as marvellous as traversing the plains of the Serengeti just after dawn, and into the morning hours. A short lunch follows, and then it's back out in the safari vehicles to seek out wildlife and explore the rich landscapes of the Serengeti.

Accommodations: Central Serengeti Nyumba

The most social of the big cats, lions live in groups called prides, comprised mostly of females and cups with one or two adult males. Today features more wildlife viewing with expert guides, and a fireside night at your Nyumba.


Accommodations: Southern Serengeti Nyumba

The Serengeti has become a household name largely due to film depictions of its great migration. Often misunderstood, the migration is actually a year-round process involving over one million wildebeest and some 200,000 zebra. Today, the Optional Serengeti Balloon Excursion takes place: those with advance reservations will have the opportunity to balloon across the plains during a morning in the Serengeti!

We also have a full day of wildlife viewing in the Serengeti: your guide will point out hidden animals, like leopards hiding in trees or lions stalking in tall grass. Travellers have an optional afternoon at their Nyumba and may forgo scheduled activities and remain at your Nyumba this afternoon to relax and recuperate, should they choose.

Today, we drive from the Serengeti to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, cutting across the arid bush country before arriving at a range of hills that lead to the famous World Heritage Site. Wildlife viewing opportunities abound as you depart the Serengeti—as you follow the meandering path out of Serengeti National Park, take in the gorgeous scenery and wildlife viewing before moving on to the next part of your adventure.

We will visit Olduvai Gorge: make a short stop at Olduvai Gorge, a deep ravine and site of ancient fossilized remains of animals and hominids. We'll enjoy a boxed lunch en route, and in the evening, relax and unwind in the comfort of camp.

Accommodations: Ngorongoro Nyumba

Ngorongoro began as an experiment to mix wildlife preservation and human settlement. Today it has a delicate ecology in which cattle grazing, tourist activity, wildlife preservation, and habitat conservation all exist side by side in balance. We'll visit the floor of Ngorongoro Crater, where you are likely to find an abundance of wildlife. We'll enjoy a picnic lunch on the crater floor: to maximize your wildlife viewing time, this takes place near a hippo pool!

Later, take a leisurely stroll through the gardens at Gibb's Farm to stretch your legs.

Accommodations: Gibb's Farm — Cottage Room

While the Maasai are the most recognizable tribe in the Ngorongoro area, many other cultures have historically resided throughout the hihglands. Most prominently, the Iraqw people settled around the highlands centuries ago. Today we'll travel to the home of Daniel Tewa, a charismatic local historian, storyteller, and respected member of the Iraqw people. There are also a range of activities available at Gibb's farm: choose from a variety of ways to spend your day.

In the evening at Gibb's farm, relax at the Tembo Fire, an open-air sitting area nestled into the foot of the organic gardens. Tonight we will gather for a farewell dinner and reflect on our adventure together.

Accommodations: Gibb's Farm — Cottage Room

Depart the highlands for Arusha, where, after a day of leisurely activities, you may catch your departing flight. A farewell snack ncluding a variety of nuts, fruit, vegetables, and other treats will be provided, and there will be an opportunity to stop at the Cultural Heritage Centre. A final lunch is available at Arusha Coffee Lodge, and a day room at Arusha will be yours before we transfer as a group to the Kilimanjaro airport.


Accommodations: Day Room at Mount Meru Hotel
