Nothing prepares you for the vastness of the Savannah. “Endless Plains,” the literal meaning of the word ‘Serengeti,’ puts in mind an image of ancient people roaming the land in awe. In awe of the sheer size, awe of the magnificent beasts, awe of the flatlands that never seem to end.

Just as you begin to get used to being in an unimaginably open landscape, you visit Ngorongoro, and explore being inside a great bowl. The origin of all life on earth becomes a movie running in your head, as you move around in this crater, home to thousands of animals.

As you travel between Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro, interact with local tribes who have maintained their forest lifestyles for hundreds of years, and take in Africa.

Round it all up with a visit to the most beautiful blue waters and white sands of Zanzibar

Your Indicative Wild Itinerary (remember, this is completely customisable):

Check out after breakfast and drive with your packed lunch to Lake Manyara National Park. An incredible first view into Wild Africa.

Look out for the Lions that climb trees in this lush forest, but don’t miss out on the exotic birds and monkeys!

Day 3: The Bowl of Life Beckons

Have an early breakfast, and depart for Ngorongoro, armed with your picnic lunch. Today, you’ll be driven into the Ngorongoro Crater for your safari experience, the place where life began! Have a surreal picnic lunch by a hippo pool and continue your game drive. What can be better than a giant volcanic bowl that’s full of the wildest beasts?

Day 4: Meet the Serengeti

Days 5, 6: The Endless Plains

The word Serengeti literally means “endless plains,” and over these days, you will realise that no amount of time can be defined as “enough” to explore this place. Pack your lunch and spend the day out in the wild. Pictures and excited squeals will abound as you spot lions, cheetahs, leopards, elephants, rhinos, hippos, and the odd ostrich! Of course, you’ve got to be lucky to spot anything, but extremely unlucky if you don’t!

Morning and evening game drives in the Serengeti, and dinner at your camp. You can also opt for a hot air balloon ride and observe the wild from up above.
