Tarangire National Park
Head out early this morning, crossing the Maasai Steppe on your way to Tarangire National Park. Here baobab trees tower overhead, large cats prowl, and diverse birdlife abounds. During the early morning and early evening, you’ll witness predators at their most active. And your camp, right in the thick of it all, offers an intimate experience unavailable to most travelers.
Overnights: Thomson Tarangire Nyumba
After one final wildlife encounter in Tarangire, journey to Ngorongoro Crater, stopping along the way for a hearty lunch and nature walk at Gibb’s Farm. Then settle in at your cozy camp, located on the rim of Ngorongoro Crater. In the early morning, drive to the crater’s floor. Maybe you’ll spot the elusive black rhino, an endangered species of which only 4,800 remain worldwide.
Overnights: Thomson Ngorongoro Nyumba
Serengeti National Park
Today, you travel to Serengeti National Park. During the next four days, you’ll explore Tanzania’s oldest national park, host to some of the largest crocodiles, biggest prides of lion, and most impressive migration of mammals. Your evenings are spent under the stars in two different campsites, which ensure that you see the greatest variety and density of wildlife no matter when you choose to travel. From the granite kopjes (rock formation) of the southern plains to the endless expanse of the northern plains, you’ll cover it all.
Join an optional hot air balloon ride to take in sweeping views of the Serengeti from above. (Advanced reservations and additional fees apply).
Overnights: Thomson Serengeti Nyumbas
Serengeti National Park to Arusha / Return to North America
This morning, take a scenic flight to Arusha, where you’ll enjoy a farewell lunch with your safari companions. Shop for last-minute souvenirs, and relax in a day room before your evening flight home.

Rivertrees Country Inn
Reminiscent of its legacy as a former German colonial farm and coffee estate, Rivertrees Country Inn blends simple elegance and modern convenience. Wake up in your farmhouse-style room to the sound of the rushing Usa River, and enjoy a hearty breakfast in an open-air, thatched-roof dining area.
Thomson Tarangire Nyumba
An authentic experience awaits you at this private camp in Tarangire. Conveniences like solar lighting and ensuite bathrooms with hot showers add a comforting touch to this safari retreat. In the evenings, enjoy dinner prepared from local ingredients, and chat with friendly staff and fellow travelers as you watch the sun set behind towering baobab trees.
Thomson Ngorongoro Nyumba
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.
Thomson Serengeti Nyumbas
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, we’re not harming the landscape.
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.
