Explore Northern Tanzania

Highlights

Experience the classic highlights of Tanzania’s northern safari circuit on this 8-night journey.

Arrive in Arusha and take an evening to rest up at Arusha Coffee Lodge. If you have time, swing by the socially-conscious Shanga Market, or stroll around the lodge’s grounds – a working coffee plantation with plenty of sights and sounds to savor.

Begin your safari with two nights at Kuro Tarangire, an old-school tented camp set in a remote and exclusive corner of Tarangire National Park. Set amid kigelia trees along the Tarangire River, Kuro keeps a light eco-footprint that prioritizes harmonizing with, and blending into, nature. Spend your days exploring the area on game drives, or walking with your guide. Tarangire is known for its large herds of buffalo, families of elephants, and iconic Baobab tree-studded landscape.

Continue northwest to the expansive Ngorongoro Crater. This extinct volcano is the largest unbroken caldera in the world, spanning over 100 square miles and home to more than 25,000 large animals. From wildebeest and zebra to the black-maned lion and black rhino, Ngorongoro Crater is a hot-spot for safari-goers. To escape the crowds, stay at Gibb’s Farm, a luxurious working farm on the forested slopes of the Crater. Here you can indulge in the expansive gardens, explore elephant caves or bicycle through the town of Karatu. Learn about tribal folklore and traditions on guided walks, visit the artist-in-residence program or local schools, or hike to the Crater’s rim with a Gibb’s Farm naturalist and rangers from the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Wrap up your journey with three nights in the renowned Serengeti. Set amongst the kopjes of the northern Serengeti, Lamai offers panoramic views of the surrounding area. Embracing the “barefoot” aesthetic, Lamai is designed to blend in and let nature take center stage. Venture into the plains for daily game drives, perhaps catching a Mara River crossing during migration time! Picnics in the bush, guided walks, and classic sundowners can all be enjoyed during your final days on safari.
