Itinerary
Day 1 – 2

Depart by overnight flight to Kilimanjaro International Airport in Arusha, and transfer to your lodge. Situated on a working coffee plantation, its raised, private chalets with log fireplaces and large balconies overlook Mount Meru and the grounds.
Overnight at Arusha Coffee Lodge

Day 3 – 4
Arusha / Tarangire National Park

Wing your way to Tarangire National Park to spend the next two days at the spacious Swala Camp tents, built on raised decks under a canopy of acacia trees. Embark on an afternoon game drive, looking for large herds of eland, oryx, wildebeest and zebra, along with a sizable elephant population. The park's terrain ranges from swamps to open grasslands and acacia parkland. The Tarangire River runs through the landscape, providing thirsty animals with a year-round supply of water. Birdwatching is exceptional in the park's diverse habitats, too, so look for bateleur and martial eagle. You may venture on a walking safari (seasonal) with a specially trained guide. Also, you may visit a primary school or a beekeeping project that allows villagers to sustain themselves by collecting and selling honey. Gather your first evening for a welcome cocktail and dinner.

PHILANTHROPY PROJECT: Visit a school where the tour operator is assisting with construction or donating supplies, or see a beekeeping project, which provides income for local families.

Day 5
Tarangire National Park / Ngorongoro Crater

Fly to Lake Manyara and continue by road to quaint Gibb's Farm to stop for a fresh lunch. Proceed to the natural amphitheater of Ngorongoro Crater, created by the collapse of an ancient volcano. Within resides a fascinating microcosm of East African wildlife, from buffalo to flamingo, lion to leopard. Climb its outer wall, passing through dense vegetation until a breathtaking view across the crater floor appears.

Arrive at an exclusive, private mobile camp — located on the rim of the crater — featuring luxury accommodations adorned with mosquito nets, hand-woven rugs, comfortable twin or king-size beds with crisp linens and en suite bathrooms with flush toilets, showers and hot water. On the veranda, director's chairs provide a place to survey the surroundings. A personal tent attendant brings hot water bottles on chilly nights, as the sounds of the African bush surround.

Ngorongoro Crater / Serengeti National Park

Board a flight to Serengeti National Park, the largest and most fabled in Tanzania. As the southern part of a vast expanse of plains shared with Kenya, this area has one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in the world. Look for antelope, hyena, leopard, giraffe, lion, buffalo and cheetah. Each year, the Serengeti is the scene of the spectacular Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra. As the vibrant sun sets, sip sundowner cocktails on a kopje (rocky, island-like outcrop).
