Click for Dates and Prices
DAY 1 ARRIVE ARUSHA, TANZANIA
Arrive in Arusha and transfer to your lodge, set on a working coffee plantation. Your private chalet near Mount Meru features a log fireplace and a balcony.
 
DAY 2 TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK | DESIGN YOUR DAY
This morning, begin your safari adventure by enjoying one of these Design Your Day activities:
 
Visit Ilboru Primary School, a project supported by A&K Philanthropy, to meet students facing special challenges.
 
Explore a Coffee Estate, walking the plantation to see how fine local coffee is grown, harvested, dried and roasted.
 
Tour the Shanga Workshop with a private guide to learn about the handmade jewelry and homeware created there.
 
Return to your lodge for lunch, and then fly to Tarangire National Park, where open grasslands, acacia trees and the Tarangire River paint the wild landscape. This afternoon, set out on a game drive. Tonight, gather with fellow guests for a welcome dinner. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
 
DAY 3 TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK | A LESSON IN LOCAL CUISINE
Today, enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in search of elands, oryxes, wildebeests and zebras as well as the park’s large elephant population. Keep your eyes trained for hartebeests, gazelles and exotic birds like the bateleur and martial eagle. Your local expert driver-guide draws on years of experience in the bush to locate the best wildlife-viewing opportunities right as they happen. This afternoon, learn how to prepare local dishes like ugali and kachumbari as part of an A&K Chef’s Table experience. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
 
DAY 4 NGORONGORO CRATER | AMPHITHEATER OF ANIMALS
As you cross the Great Rift Valley, stop for a market visit in Mto wa Mbu, where stalls brim with vibrant local produce. Then, see the village from a different perspective as you Ride Like a Local on a tuk-tuk, viewing the local community and rice fields as you go. Next, take a scenic drive to tranquil Gibb’s Farm, where you stop for a lunch made with organic, just-picked ingredients. Later, arrive at the natural amphitheater of Ngorongoro Crater, a 2,000-foot-deep caldera. A fascinating microcosm of East African wildlife — including buffalo, flamingos, lions and leopards — resides inside. Climb the outer wall, passing through dense vegetation until a breathtaking view across the crater floor appears. Arrive at your camp, nestled in a wooded area with easy access to the crater floor and featuring elegant, tented accommodations adorned with handwoven rugs, comfortable beds with crisp linens and en suite bathrooms with flush toilets. Relax on your veranda to view the panoramic natural wonderland. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
 
DAY 5 NGORONGORO CRATER | INTIMATE CRATER BARBECUE
This morning, descend into the crater, arriving ahead of most visitors — thanks to the closer proximity of your ideally located accommodations — to view the resident wildlife at its most active time of day. Take a break from game viewing for a private, hot gourmet lunch, prepared by your camp staff in a location apart from crowded picnic sites, as a symphony of wildlife sounds envelops you. This afternoon, visit with an elder at a Maasai village, where you learn about the tribe’s traditional, nomadic lifestyle and coexistence with wildlife. Later, witness a dance performance at your tented camp. Sense the incomparable spirit of this pastoral, nomadic people who have kept their tribal traditions alive through countless generations of life in East Africa. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
 
DAY 6 SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK | SEARCHING THE VAST PLAINS
Fly to the fabled Serengeti National Park and settle into your remote and authentic camp. Then, set out on the boundless Serengeti, one of the oldest and least-changed ecosystems on earth, where the circle of life plays out every day. It is home to one of the world’s largest concentrations of wildlife, with lions, hyenas and leopards all endemic. For a portion of each year, dictated by weather patterns and the unpredictable nature of wild animals, vast herds of wildebeests and zebras move through the Serengeti in search of grass and water as part of the year-round Great Migration cycle. This evening, sip a cocktail and reflect on the majesty of Africa during a relaxing Scenic Sundowner experience. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
 
DAY 7 SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK | WHERE THE BIG FIVE ROAM
Venture out on morning and afternoon game drives in the protected Serengeti refuge, where flowing rivers support a plethora of species. In addition to the Big Five (lions, elephants, Cape buffalo, leopards and rhinos), keep your camera handy for sights such as a cheetah bolting after a fleet Thomson’s gazelle. Enjoy ideal game viewing as your highly experienced driver-guide strives continually to keep you in the heart of the action. Tonight, gather for a memorable farewell dinner. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
 
DAY 8 DEPART ARUSHA
Fly to Arusha and enjoy lunch. Relax in a comfortable dayroom before transferring to the airport for your flight home. (Breakfast, Lunch)
