Please call to discuss flight options. Ask about competitive business class rates.
Arrive Arusha, Tanzania
Arrive into Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). Your guide will meet you at the airport and escort you to tonight’s lodge in Arusha.
Overnight: Mount Meru Hotel
Eastern Serengeti Nature Refuge
A short flight from Arusha will take you to this private nature reserve. Because the land is privately owned, you’ll be able to head out on foot on guided hikes, and observe the nocturnal life of the Serengeti during night wildlife drives, experiences not available in the national parks. Meet with an entrepreneurial group of Maasai women and visit a traditional Maasai boma in this remote, exclusive setting.
Overnights: Eastern Serengeti Nyumba

Serengeti National Park
Tanzania’s most iconic national park also has some of the best wildlife-viewing in the country. Spanning 6,000 square miles (the park is about the same size as Connecticut!), the rolling grass plains, granite kopjes where animals lounge in the sun, and winding rivers of the Serengeti are home to thousands upon thousands of animals, including giraffes, elephants, zebras, wildebeest, and large populations of big cats.
Join an optional hot air balloon ride to take in sweeping views of the Serengeti from above. (Advanced reservations and additional fees apply).
Overnights: Serengeti Nyumba
The Ngorongoro Crater is just 10 miles across, but the floor of this volcanic caldera (which sinks 2,000 feet below the rim) is home to over 30,000 mammals! One of the only places where you can spot all of the “Big Five” species—lion, leopard, cape buffalo, elephant, and black rhinoceros—in just one day, the lush, verdant crater is a must see for any traveler to East Africa. During your stay here, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a traditional Tanzanian meal, a specialty of the chefs at your nyumba camp.
Overnight: Ngorongoro Nyumba
Ngorongoro Crater to Arusha / Return to North America
On your way back to Arusha, you’ll enjoy a farewell lunch at River House, a community-based nonprofit organization that employs disabled local artisans and sells their beautiful handiwork. Say goodbye to your safari companions, pick out a few souvenirs, and relax in a day room before your return flight.
Day room: Mount Meru Hotel
Extend your discoveries with one of our optional trip extensions. Stroll the colorful streets on the island of Zanzibar … catch intimate glimpses of gorillas in the Virunga Mountains … search for wildlife across uncharted plains in Ruaha National Park … and more.
Optional Hot Air Balloon Excursion: $550

Mount Meru Hotel
The Mount Meru Hotel has been a mainstay of Arusha accommodations since it opened in the 1960's, when Tanzania tourism was still in its infancy. It was recently renovated top to bottom, and the finished product is even better than the original. With reliable modern conveniences, a variety of dining options, a beautiful pool, and a central location, it is one of the best places to start or end your safari or trek.
Eastern Serengeti Nyumba
Wake up with a hot shower in your ensuite bathroom, and marvel at sweeping views of the eastern Serengeti ecosystem’s remote savannah. After a day of adventure, you’ll appreciate the comforts of the camp. Enjoy a hearty dinner prepared fresh from local ingredients, and discuss the day’s excitement with your fellow travelers and attentive staff.
These semi-permanent, seasonal camps are strategically plotted across the Serengeti according to wildlife migration patterns. Each location offers comfort in the heart of the wilderness. With spacious tents, cozy bedding, and ensuite bathrooms, you’ll have to take a look outside to be reminded that you’re deep in the bush. And no need to worry—with eco-friendly features like solar lighting, your stay won't harm the landscape.
The Ngorongoro camp is set on the eastern edge of the Ngorongoro Crater’s rim and offers the best possible access in and out of the crater, as well as a more private, remote experience. In the morning, you have the eastern floor of the crater almost completely to yourself. In the evenings, when you return to camp, you'll be greeted with the hospitality that is a hallmark of all our camps. Settle in to your spacious tent, enjoy a hot safari-shower in your ensuite facilities, head to the campfire for a drink before dinner, and enjoy a traditional Tanzanian meal -- a specialty of the camp chefs here. Don't forget to bundle up at this camp, as temperatures can be as low as 40 degrees from May to October.
