Itinerary

DAY

01

Katambuga House

On arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you’ll be met by your transfer driver who will drive you for about 90 minutes to your hotel in Arusha. Look out for iconic views of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru out of your right-hand window on the way. If you arrive early, there will be time for you to spend the afternoon bird watching in the garden, enjoy a coffee tasting tour in a nearby estate, visit a market in town or simply relax by the pool. After a tasty dinner in your hotel, you will spend your first night in Tanzania relaxing before heading off on your safari the following morning.

DAY

02-04

Tarangire National Park

After a leisurely breakfast at your hotel in Arusha, you will begin your journey to Tarangire National Park. On the Simple and Classic itineraries, you will meet your Asilia driver and guide who will be your host for the duration of your trip in Tanzania. You will then drive southwest, through rural Tanzania until you reach the park gate. From here it is game driving all the way to the lodge. You will then spend the next two days exploring the unique landscapes of Tarangire National Park with all the luxury and flexibility that having your own private vehicle and guide has.

DAY

05

Ngorongoro Crater

On the Simple and Classic itineraries, you will depart early in the morning on a game drive north through Tarangire National Park until you reach the park gate. You will then drive west towards Ngorongoro, stopping off at the stunning Lake Manyara National Park to try and spot some of its unique wildlife. You will have a picnic lunch overlooking the alkaline lake watching for flamingos, zebra, buffalo, elephant, and maybe even tree-climbing lions. In the afternoon you will head back out of the park towards your lodge in the vibrant town of Karatu where you will spend the next two nights.

DAY

06

Crater Descent

You’ll want to get an early start so that you are amongst the first people down on the crater floor. Not only is that when it is quietest, but the lighting conditions are at their best, and the resident animals are at their most active too. You’ll have some morning coffee and breakfast on the crater floor before going on an unforgettable game drive. Lunch can be taken next to a hippo pool and then you will continue your drive looking out for The Big Five, including the rare black rhino. When it’s time to start the return journey, your guide will drive you back up the steep walls of the caldera to the rim, and onwards to your lodge for a chance to freshen up and enjoy a drink in the bar before dinner.

DAY

07-09

Serengeti

After another tasty breakfast, you will begin your journey to the Serengeti.  On the Simple and Classic Itineraries, you will continue by road with your Asilia driver guide from Karatu, through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area into the Serengeti, watching as you pass countless gazelle, zebra, wildebeest, and other wildlife. You will arrive at your safari lodge in the central Serengeti in time for lunch, which will be spent gazing out over the seemingly endless grassy plains.
Your next couple of days will be spent exploring the world-renowned wildlife of the Serengeti. You will typically go out twice a day - once early morning and once late afternoon, stopping for a sundowner before returning to the lodge for dinner and drinks around a campfire.

DAY

10

End

After a final breakfast in camp, make your way towards the airstrip for your flight to Kilimanjaro Airport. The plane will likely make a few stops along the way as it picks-up and drops-off passengers at selected airstrips, eventually arriving around mid-day. Upon arrival, collect your bags and check-in for your onward journey home
