Featuring the remote, eco-friendly camps of Nomad Tanzania – one of East Africa’s oldest safari companies – this itinerary will transport you to the wildest, game-rich corners of northern Tanzania for an authentic big game safari.

You begin at the rustic, riverside Kuro Tarangire, hidden away amidst the lush landscapes of Tarangire National Park, before moving onto the Ngorongoro Crater. A wildlife haven and geological wonder alike, here you’ll have the privilege of staying on the very edge of the crater rim at the luxurious Entamanu Ngorongoro.

You’ll finish spectacularly on the fabled plains of the Serengeti and Nomad’s exclusive Lamai Serengeti camp, with an optional three-night extension to the beautiful Zuri Zanzibar resort for some post safari R&R.

    Day 1 London - Arusha

    Fly from London to northern Tanzania where you will be met and transferred to the Rivertrees Country Inn just outside of Arusha. Looking out towards the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, it’s the perfect place to recharge after your flight. Those feeling more active, however, can take a canoe out onto Lake Duluti or explore the nearby Arusha National Park.

    Stay: One night in a Garden Room at the Rivertrees Country Inn

    Day 2-3 Tarangire National Park
    Tarangire National Park

    Today you will be privately transferred to Kuro Tarangire, a rustic camp with a delightfully remote setting in the heart of Tarangire National Park. In fact, its position amongst a secluded patch of riverside bush is so discreet, that animals amble by and right through camp totally unfazed.

    You couldn’t be better situated for discovering this natural wilderness and its outstanding concentration of wildlife. Expert guides will lead you on exciting game drives, as well as walks along the Tarangire River, for up-close encounters with elephant, buffalo and lion. You should also keep your eyes peeled for more unusual species like the fringe-eared oryx and long-necked gerenuk, as well as up to 550 different species of birds.

    At Kuro Tarangire, you’ll have the exclusive opportunity to explore after dark to discover some of the park’s more elusive, nocturnal creatures – porcupines, hyenas and zorillas to name a few.

    Stay: Two nights at Kuro Tarangire

    Day 4-5 Ngorongoro Crater
    Ngorongoro Crater

    The next stage in your adventure brings you to one of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders – with a game drive through Lake Manyara National Park en route. Formed by the collapse of a giant volcano, the Ngorongoro Crater is both a UNESCO-listed geological landmark and stunning wildlife haven.

    At Entamanu Ngorongoro, perched on the very rim of the crater, you’ll be able to head out just after dawn, well before the crowds, to experience this unique world of rolling highlands, sweeping grassland and abundant wildlife.

    As well as game drives into the crater, which will bring you encounters with flamingos, rhinos, wildebeest and a whole parade of predators, you’ll be able to explore the surrounding highlands on foot with a local Maasai scout, unveiling the area’s smaller species and plants. Don’t miss out on a trip to the neighbouring Maasai village to learn more about the local’s little changed way of life.

    Stay: Two nights at Entamanu Ngorongoro

    Day Serengeti

    Your wildlife adventure culminates in the Serengeti, the country’s oldest national park and setting for the Great Wildebeest Migration. Tucked in amongst the rocks of the Kogakuria Kopje in the park’s untrammelled northern area, the Lamai Serengeti is an excellent base from which to experience this awe-inspiring natural event, including offering a front-row view of the dramatic river crossings.

    But even out of the migration season the Serengeti supports a thriving population of big cats and buffalo, as well as elephants, giraffe, hartebeest and impala. Alongside Nomad’s expert guides, you’ll also be able to spot some of the 500-plus species of birds on display – from ostriches to black eagles – as well as reptiles like agama lizards and smaller mammals like rock hyraxes.

    Stay: Three nights at Lamai Serengeti

    Day 11-12 Zanzibar

    Hop on a flight to neighbouring Zanzibar for some much-deserved post-safari R&R. With a prime location on one of the island’s finest beaches, days at the Zuri Zanzibar can be as active or as restful as you like.

    Alternate between lounging on white sands, swimming in the 32-metre long infinity pool and dozing in a private seating pod in Zuri’s luxuriant Spice Garden. Yoga and Swahili cooking classes are also on the menu, as well as incredible diving and snorkelling in the protected waters surrounding nearby Mnemba Island.

    Stay: Three nights in a Garden Bungalow at Zuri Zanzibar

    • I am notoriously difficult to please as my work colleagues and family will attest but I have to say that the organisation from your team was absolutely brilliant. From guides to drivers it was faultless.
