This is one of our favourite bush-and-beach value trips! Starting in Arusha, it continues to the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti before ending on the idyllic island of Zanzibar.
While you’re in Arusha, you’ll stay at Rivertrees Country Inn. This property provides characterful accommodation in the foothills of majestic Mount Meru. After one night there, you’ll travel to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, to spend time at Mandhari Lodge. The latest offering from superb safari company Nasikia, Mandhari is situated high up on the Manyara Escarpment and boasts spectacular views of the Great Rift Valley! Next, you’ll head to Kaskaz Mara Camp, a stylish option in the far north of the Serengeti National Park. And your last few days are enjoyed at Pongwe Beach Hotel, an amazing-value property on the east coast of Zanzibar.
During your stopover at Rivertrees, you can relax after your flight by making good use of the lodge’s massage banda, gardens, and swimming pool. Once you’ve arrived at Mandhari Lodge, your safari begins in earnest, with expertly guided game drives in both Lake Manyara National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater! The lodge also offers highlands hiking and a thrilling range of cultural activities on site. Kaskaz offers vehicle safaris too, as well as guided walks and hot air balloon rides. Finally, Pongwe’s activities list includes watersports, land sports, and plenty of laidback beach time.
