This trip begins in Arusha, Tanzania’s gateway town to the famous Northern Circuit. It continues on to Karatu, for the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara, and then to the Serengeti. Lastly you’ll enjoy some beach time, on Zanzibar!
The first stop on your safari is Arusha’s Rivertrees. Situated just outside the vibrant town, this is a characterful country inn that’s perfect for taking time to relax following your flight. Next, you’ll travel to Endoro Lodge, in Karatu. This property provides a luxurious base from which to visit the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara. Naona Moru Camp is your third stop – it’s a very elegant camp in the Central/Southern Serengeti, and travellers staying for four nights get one night free! And finally you’ll head out to the idyllic island of Zanzibar, to Pongwe Beach Hotel, for some well-earned laidback beach time.
Rivertrees offers a superb restaurant, a massage hut, and a swimming pool to help you into the holiday frame of mind. Once at Karatu, the safari starts in earnest, as you’ll enjoy expertly guided game drives in both the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara National Park! Naona Moru provides vehicle safaris too, as well as walks and hot air balloon rides. And Pongwe is wonderful for watersports, land sports, and a thrilling range of excursions around Zanzibar.
