Day 1: Depart the U.S. for Tanzania
Day 2: Arrive at Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO), Tanzania
Overnight: Rivertrees Country Inn, 1 night
The itinerary begins in Arusha, Tanzania, with one night at the Rivertrees Country Inn. Our guests can recover from the long international flight and relax before safari.
Days 3-5: Arusha to Tarangire National Park
Overnight: Kuro Camp, 3 nights
Your guide(s) will drive you to beautiful Tarangire National Park where you will spend two nights at Kuro Camp. This mobile camp is typically set in a grove of Acacia and Kigali trees. Each of the six tents has comfortable beds, an en-suite bucket shower and flushing eco-toilet. The family tent offers two en-suite bedrooms and an adjoining sitting area. Guests gather in the lounge to socialize and share meals together under the dining tent.
Herds of up to 300 elephants congregate here, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala and eland can also be seen, with the accompanying predators following along behind. The swamps are home to over 550 bird species – the most breeding species in one habitat anywhere in the world.
Days 7-10: Serengeti National Park
Overnight: Serengeti Safari Camp, 4 nights
You’ll transfer to Tarangire airstrip for a short flight to Kogatende and the Northern Serengeti. Guests will stay three nights at Serengeti Safari Camp.
The mobile Serengeti Safari Camp moves 3-4 times each year, giving guests optimal game-viewing experiences as the animals migrate and the predators follow. Six canvas tents, including a family tent, include en-suite bucket shower and flushing eco-toilets. The lounge offers a library of books, battery charging station, games to play and stocked bar. Guests share meals together under the dining tent.
The northern Serengeti area of lush, rolling grassland and tree-lined waterways is the hub around which the Serengeti migration circulates. Zebra, topi, gazelles, impala, buffalo and giraffe all frequent the area throughout the year. Lions are rarely far away and leopards, ever present but always elusive, stalk the rocky kopjes and river lines.
Day 11: Kogatende Airstrip to Arusha
After Serengeti, you will transfer to Kogatende airstrip for a short flight to Arusha and then on to your home or your optional trip extension.
