Inspiration and natural wonders holiday to Tanzania

A 9-day tour for an independent-minded traveller who is keen to experience as much as possible, this safari has the advantage of more nights than usual on this route. Your professional driver-guide proves a wealth of information as you travel through an ever-changing landscape. The itinerary takes in the classic wildlife destinations of Tanzania’s northern circuit, beginning with a peaceful night at an Arusha riverside lodge to unwind after what may have been a long journey.

Tarangire National Park is first, most famous for its concentrations of wildlife at the Tarangire River during the mid-year dry season and a rewarding destination throughout the year. Home to large numbers of elephants and other heavyweight animals such as buffalo and giraffe, the wild woods of Tarangire compare strongly with open plains of the Serengeti where you are on the lookout for migrating wildebeest herds in season and their predators. A full-day safari on the flat floor of the Ngorongoro Crater provides more opportunities to spot the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo) and perhaps flamingos and hippos in the Crater wetlands.

Traveling between destinations by 4X4 vehicle for part of the way means the chance to sit back and watch a traditional rural landscape pass by, framed by epic Rift Valley scenery. The vehicle has been designed to make photography as easy as possible: large windows and a pop-up roof, and everyone gets a window seat. The accommodation includes elegant tented camps with no more than 10 suites, each with fabulous views.
