Arrive Arusha and transfer to Little Chem Chem. This is approximately 1.5 – 2 hours. It’s an easy drive or you can fly to Kuro airstrip which takes a heavenly 15 minutes. From Kuro, you’ll transfer in open 4×4 vehicle through the Tarangire region to camp.
2 nights at Little Chem Chem on a private concession adjoining Tarangire National Park. You’ll wake up to magical sunrises every day and a welcoming tea or coffee before heading out for morning safaris spotting elephants, lions and if you’re lucky, leopard. Return to camp for lunch, time at leisure and head out again in the afternoon on a safari activity whether it’s a game drive or walking safari.
Transfer in 4×4 vehicle to Chem Chem Lodge through surrounding community villages where you’ll stop and experience life as a Maasai. Spend three nights here with safari walks, game drives, spectacular sunsets over Lake Manyara, walking with the giraffe, flying with the flamingos (Jan – Feb) and interacting with Maasai villages. There is also a wonderful Amani spa onsite offering free daily massage per person for stays of 4 nights or longer as your incentive to add another night!
By now you are in the swing of safari life and it’s time to move on. We will transfer you in closed sided vehicle (as you’re on main roads) to Gibb’s Farm, approximately 90 minutes. This stunning property is nestled in organic gardens on a working farm. Activities range from farm tours, crater rim walks, visits to elephants caves and waterfall and of course a safari in the famous Ngorongoro Crater. You have two nights here to savour.
From here, you’ll transfer to Lake Manyara airstrip, just 20 minutes away and catch a light aircraft flight into the northern Serengeti region. On arrival at the airstrip, you’ll be met by your guide and transfer in open sided 4×4 vehicles to your camp, Singita Mara River Tented Camp in the Serengeti Lamai region or Serengeti Grumeti. This all depends on the time of year, your preferred activities and style of stay.
Spend 3 nights in the Serengeti enjoying endless views over the Mara River or Serengeti plains with the migration in full swing. If at Manyara River Tented camp you should see a river crossing which will be a highlight of your safari. There is abundant resident game too so you will see everything from predators on land (lion, leopard, cheetah etc) and water (crocodiles, hippo) plus elephant, buffalo and plains game like giraffe, zebra.
It’s time to bid Africa farewell and transfer to the airstrip for a flight back to Arusha or onwards to Zanzibar for time out on this African spice island!
