Itinerary

Day 1Arusha and welcome

Welcome to Tanzania! Upon arrival at Arusha’s Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will be greeted and escorted to your lakeside lodge, a serene escape in Tanzania’s bustling city.

Overnight: Arusha Serena Lodge
Meals: Breakfast

Day 2Lake Manyara National Park

After breakfast, we drive to Lake Manyara National Park, viewing games en-route to our lodge and arriving in time for lunch. After getting settled in, set out for an afternoon game drive and hope to see the park’s famous tree-climbing lions. A wealth of birdlife and large game roam the park and its lake, with the cliffs of the Great Rift Valley forming a stunning backdrop to it all. The lodge is perched high above the lake with magnificent views from your room and the grounds. Dinner and overnight at Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge.

The beautiful Lake Manyara covers two-thirds of this national park; the rest consists of steep mountainside, swamps, dense woodlands, open grassy areas, and hot springs. One of the many alkaline lakes of the Great Rift Valley, it was formed three million years ago and is quite shallow – perfect for the 350 species of birds including pelicans, ibises, storks, Egyptian geese, and flamingoes. Baboons and black monkeys can be heard chattering in the woodlands near the park’s entrance and a multitude of the large game can be found traversing the low, grassy areas near the lake’s shore.

Overnight: Lake Manyara Serena Lodge
Meals: Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

Day 3 & 4The Serengeti National Park

We set out after an early breakfast amongst the splendor of an African sunrise for a full day of game viewing. Negotiating the roads and tracks down from the lodge, you are transported into a world of a timeless natural wonder; one where the sights, sounds, and pageantry of life continue on just as they have for thousands of years. As the day progresses, your driver’s deep knowledge of the land becomes apparent as he leads you to one spot of outstanding beauty after the next, allowing you to observe the wildlife quietly and at your leisure.

As the animals take refuge from the hot mid-day sun, we find a secluded spot to stop and enjoy a picnic lunch before pressing on. You arrive back at the lodge at dusk, pleasantly tired after an exhilarating day. After a well-deserved hot shower, you head to the main lodge for dinner. Take your after-dinner drink on your verandah if you wish, watching the wildlife grazing nearby. The atmosphere is remarkably peaceful as night falls, leaving you with dreams of this diverse and wonderful country.
