    Northern Tanzania Experience Itinerary

    Day 1: Arusha - Ngorongoro

    You will be greeted by your driver and the car will take you on you will set off with picnics for the first part of your safari to the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater.

    Later, you will arrive at the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge for your evening meal and your first night of accommodation at Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge on full board basis. Facing the always magnificent sunsets to the west, and located at the highest point on Ngorongoro crater’s entire rim, Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge stands well over half a kilometre above the crater floor and offers unparalleled views across this enormous caldera.

    Themed around traditionally circular African houses with conical roofs, and decorated with examples of Africa’s rich tapestry of artistic traditions by way of rich woodcarvings and sculptures, the lodge harmonizes perfectly with its dramatic surroundings. But the drama does not just stop with the great outdoors: it also flows through the split level interiors of the main building which all offer an unsurpassed generosity of space while somehow managing to combine an almost magically welcoming ambience of both warmth and cosiness.

    Overnight: Serengeti Safari Camp
    Meal Plan: B,L,D

    Day 5: Serengeti

    Shadowing the seasonal movements of the Serengeti wildebeest migration, Serengeti Safari Camp is a simple blend of form and function. Superlative game viewing from an oasis of safari civilization.

    With your own private guide and vehicle, days here are taken at the pace you're comfortable with. All-day game drives leaving at first light and returning at dusk. Or, if you prefer, a long lunch in camp, followed by a siesta and a gentle evening drive. You decide.

    The camp is tented in the finest tradition of East African safaris. But with only six spacious ensuite tents, great food and a crew hell-bent on exceeding your expectations, this is a million miles from camping as most people know it.

    Day 7: Serengeti

    A few years ago the Tanzanian government chose a handful of responsible companies to build small permanent lodges in the remote far northern sector of the Serengeti National Park. Lamai Serengeti was offered the prime site.

    Lamai Serengeti now sits tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, just a few miles from where the wildebeest cross the Mara River. For roughly a quarter of the year, between late July and October, this is where you'll find the migration.

    Overnight: Lamai Serengeti Camp
    Meal Plan: B,L,D

    Day 8: Serengeti - Kilimanjaro

    Depart from Lamai Serengeti, with picnics for the journey. A transfer will take you to Kogatende airstrip for a regional flight to Kilimanjaro.
