Luxe Tanzania:

Exploring in Style

Highlights

Experience Tanzania at its most luxurious on this 10-night trip through wild Africa. Spend one night at Arusha’s Legendary Lodge, a serene accommodation ensconced in greenery and a working coffee farm on the outskirts of this safari stopover destination. Before you jet off in the morning, enjoy the freshest cup of coffee and a full English breakfast in the old farmhouse with views of breathtaking Mount Meru. Fly to Mwiba Lodge, set on its own private conservancy, for your first safari experience.

Mwiba Lodge is set into a natural landscape of massive boulders, with views of the Arugusinyai River and surrounding coral trees and acacias. An intimate accommodation, Mwiba allows you to control your own destiny - hop from the slate-lined infinity pool to off-road game drives on 125,000 acres of reserve. For a different experience, schedule a visit to the Maasai, Hadzabe, Datoga or Sukuma tribes. This area is full of local peoples who provide a glimpse into the traditional African experience. Meet with a medicine man or accompany tribal members in daily tasks. If you’re lucky, you might witness traditional song/dance performances. Their cultural heritage extends back thousands of years.

Continue to the sprawling savannah of the Grumeti Reserve and the rustic opulence of Sabora Tented Camp. Daily game drives showcase the best of Tanzania’s wildlife including cheetah, bearded wildebeest, bat eared fox, Maasai giraffe, lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and much more. Not to mention the zebras that regularly strolls through camp. Get out of the vehicle and stretch your legs on a guided bush walk to take in the oft forgotten minutia of safari – the sights, sounds and smells of the African bush on foot. Return to camp for the ultimate comforts, from the Maasai blankets, to the traditional beadwork, and daybeds scattered beneath the camp’s trees.

Your last 3 nights on safari, experience total relaxation at Chem Chem Lodge on the eastern edge of Lake Manyara. Bonus: Enjoy a scenic helicopter flight over the jewel in Ngorongoro’s crown, a deep, volcanic crater, to Lake Natron, the lake with the flamingo’s, and back. Enjoy a special picnic lunch with cooler box, ice and drinks. It is luxe but off the beaten path. Other activities: Walk with the Maasai warriors and experience a special choral performance. Later, sip sundowners lakeside while swapping safari stories – we promise, you’ll have plenty!
