Tanzania's northern circuit is as good as safari gets. Epic big-game viewing, the Great Migration, active volcanoes, the Maasai, the Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater! This safari takes some beating; one of our most popular safaris.

This 12-night itinerary takes in two of Africa’s most famous Big Five national parks! You are guaranteed exceptionally good game viewing, fantastic food and wine, and superb service. Then, following your time on safari, a brilliant beach break awaits on Zanzibar, in one of our favourite boutique hotels on the island!

We use three properties for this trip – Plantation Lodge, Serengeti Safari Camp, and Matlai Boutique Hotel. Plantation Lodge is situated just outside the town of Karatu and provides a fabulous base for checking out not only Lake Manyara National Park but the Ngorongoro Crater too! Serengeti Safari Camp offers authentic accommodation and some amazing safari experiences. It was the first mobile camp in the national park! Finally, Matlai Boutique Hotel has everything you could desire for a relaxing beach break at the end of your holiday.

On Day 1 of your trip, you will fly out to the Ngorongoro Crater area and transfer by road to Plantation Lodge. This is a charming little property, situated in a coffee plantation within the foothills of the majestic Crater itself! A colonial-style building houses the lounge and dining areas, and is set within exceedingly well-kept gardens that are perfect for al-fresco meals and simply wandering around. All guest rooms have views of the gardens, and they also feature a fireplace or wood-burning stove and spacious en-suite shower- or bathroom. Activities include seriously good game drives in both the Crater and Lake Manyara National Park, as well as trips into Karatu. Plantation Lodge has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and, for fans of a fine vintage, its own wine cellar, where you can enjoy a few tasting sessions!

Board basis and activities:

Full board accommodation including all meals, soft drinks, a collection of house alcoholic drinks, and laundry service. Game driving in Lake Manyara National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater is also included from your private vehicle accompanied by a private guide.

Days 3-6

For the next part of your trip, you will fly to the Serengeti, to stay at Serengeti Safari Camp. This property has the distinction of being the oldest mobile camp in the area – and we think it is one of the most adventurous too! There’s also a touch of romance in being on a classic explorers’ safari. Unlike other mobile camps, this one travels hundreds of miles per year to ensure that guests enjoy the most exhilarating sights of the Great Migration. This means that you are guaranteed a front-row seat for watching one of the greatest shows on Earth! Guest accommodation at Serengeti Safari Camp comprises six walk-in tents, all with eco-flush toilet and bucket shower. There’s an informal vibe here and the guiding is excellent. At the end of each day, there’s usually dinner around the camp fire, with everyone sharing safari stories!

Board basis and activities:

Fully inclusive of meals, selected house alcoholic drinks, soft drinks, laundry and standard game drives from a shared open-sided 4×4 game drive vehicle.

Days 7-11

For the final part of the itinerary, we fly you to Zanzibar for five nights at Matlai Boutique Hotel. With a beautiful location within the Michamvi Peninsula area on the scenic south-east coast, this property has always been a favourite at YZ! Owned and run by a friendly family, it has just four guest rooms and a very exclusive feel. All of the accommodation is set up in grounds just a short walk from the quiet beach. Days are spent simply relaxing on the sugar-soft white sands, or getting stuck in to some snorkelling, beach volleyball, or even boules! Every evening, you can sit down to enjoy a meal in all sorts of hidden dining areas around the Hotel, a wonderfully romantic way to end your trip together.

Board basis and activities:

Full board with three meals, afternoon tea or coffee, water, and soft drinks. Butler service featuring personalised in-room check-in, luggage handling, in-room meals, beach service, and private open-air cinema!


On Day 12, you will be transferred through to Zanzibar’s airport for your international flight home.
