Diverse in all aspects! This itinerary offers 4 (or 5 if you include the beach) remarkably different eco-systems which is a key element to creating a captivating safari. Upon arrival, you’ll spend one night in Arusha to recover from the long journey. Your private driver/guide will be your escort as you stay at Oliver’s Camp in Tarangire. From there, drive to the Ngorongoro Highlands, visiting Lake Manyara en-route. Experience a day in the famed Ngorongoro Crater before flying (or driving – depending on time of year) into the Serengeti (Ndutu region) to experience the Great Migration whilst staying at Olakira Camp. Finish your safari with a relaxing 4 night stay on Zanzibar’s secluded North-East Coast at Matemwe Beach House.


Day 1

Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) you will be met by your driver and transferred to Machweo Wellness Retreat where you will spend one night to relax.

Tarangire is famed for huge herds of elephants, an abundance of birdlife (more than 500 species!) and beautiful baobab trees.

Day 4

Depart Tarangire, and enjoy a game drive through Lake Manyara. This park contains a wide variety of habitats supporting hundreds of different bird species (it is possible to see flamingoes!) and the possibility of mountain biking in this area. Arrive at Kitela Lodge in the Ngorongoro Highlands where you will spend the next two nights.

Day 5

Today you will descend into the Ngorongoro Crater and experience a game drive on the crater floor. You have a good chance at seeing an abundance of wildlife today – including the critically endangered black rhino!

Day 6 - 8

Begin your adventure into the Serengeti to encounter the Great Migration herds of wildebeest and zebras. Experience game drives with the guides from Olakira Camp where you will stay for the next three nights. Depending on the time of year you travel, Olakira may be based in the Northern Serengeti, or the South as it moves twice per year, following the Migration.

    Jacob & Jilly (Australia) travelled in October 2018

  • "My husband and I chose Africa for our honeymoon. Coming from Australia, we needed a travel agent that knew Africa well but also understood the kind of people we were, and what kind of a holiday we wanted. We found TrueAfrica online and from the moment we made contact with them they were fantastic! We felt like they were a bit of secret still yet to be discovered by the majority of tourists, and without TrueAfrica we would not have found them."

    Bridget & Stuart travelled in November 2012

    Hannah & Kade travelled in September 2014

    Aly & TJ travelled in August 2016
