Highlight of the tour after the day game drives is the Sundowner in the middle of the Tarangire bush. As the sun swiftly sinks, your setting becomes illuminated by a magnificent log fire.

Day 1: Arusha

On arrival at the airport, meet our experienced guide. You will then be chauffeured via the bustling town of Arusha to Lake Duluti Lodge Arusha Coffee Lodge a perfect haven hidden amongst one of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantations. Overnight at Lake Duluti Lodge


Day 2, 3 & 4: Serengeti National Park

Breakfast and time to enjoy a little of the fresh ‘plantation’ air before leaving by safari vehicle for Arusha domestic airport for your scheduled flight to either the western corridor or northern Serengeti, depending on where the migration is. You'll be met at the airstrip by your private car and guide and settle in to your comfortable tent. Serengeti Safari Camp moves seasonally to a different location every few months. Enjoy a relaxed afternoon in camp or head out for gentle drive, returning for a hot shower and cold drink by the fire before dinner.

In the next two days, head out after an early breakfast with your private car and guide and a picnic lunch in search of the great herds. The Serengeti is not all about the migration - there's a wonderful array of big game and birdlife. Exploring this fast space can be immensely satisfying...take it as it comes!
Overnight at Serengeti Safari Camp (B, L, D)


Day 5, 6, 7 & 8: Katavi National Park

This morning hop on the Nomad scheduled charter to the far west of Tanzania.  Katavi is a wilderness in every sense. 4500km2 of big animal country with just a small handful of visitors every year.  Chada Katavi is the original Katavi camp and still retains its pioneering heritage. Settle in, have a delicious lunch and a siesta before heading out for a game drive and sundowner.  Check out the huge numbers of hippo and crocodiles that Katavi is famous for! Return to camp for a hot shower before dinner under the stars.

Waking up under canvas in such a wild place, to the birdsong and cool morning air is made more delightful with the arrival of a fresh pot of tea on your verandah. Dress in layers and hop in the open vehicle for a drive along the water-courses.  Katavi's variety of wildlife is often most evident gathering long the riverlines, and it is known for its vast herds of buffalo, great populations of elephant and lion.
Return to camp in the heat of the day for that all important lunch and siesta, followed by a drive or a walk in the evening. Overnight at Chada Katavi (B, L, D)


Day 9: Mahale Mountain National Park

You have a relaxed start to the day this morning, with a leisurely breakfast and a late morning flight on to your next destination.  The hour long flight to Mahale is a lovely journey in itself.  Land at the strip on the edge of Lake Tanganyika and board your dhow.  Snacks and drinks on board will keep you happy while you sink into the cushions, relax and enjoy the view of the forested mountains sloping toward the waterline. The arrival at Greystoke has been described as among the most dramatic anywhere in Africa. Once on shore, kick your shoes off and make yourself at home in this wild place, in anticipation of the days to come. Overnight at Greystoke Mahale (B, L, D)

Day 10: Mahale Mountain National Park

After a hectic safari week, you'll be happy to know that you can have a relaxed start today.  The sun rises late behind the mountains and you can amble down for breakfast while the scouts head up into the forests to locate the chimps.  A small group of Mahale's significant population of wild chimpanzees have been habituated by Kyoto University, and these are the individuals that we seek.  They are still very wild and "habituated" simply means that they tolerate your presence while they continue being chimps.  This takes up most of your morning (between getting there and back).  Return for lunch at camp and an afternoon of relaxing, reading or perhaps a dhow trip and sundowner.
Overnight at Greystoke Mahale (B, L, D) 

Day 11: Mahale Mountain National Park

As with yesterday, a relatively gentle start preceeds your hike up into the forests in search of our chimpanzee friends.  Along the way you'll see other primates, interesting flora and hear about the social behaviour of the chimps from our expert guides.  Our guides and scouts have spent much time in these forests and their passion and knowledge is evident. In the afternoon, we'd recommend a trip out into the lake for a deep water swim.  Slightly eerie but totally enchanting, this is one of the highlights of the stay.  Dip a hand line in the water on the way home and see what you catch...you might have sushi with your g&t! Home for a shower and dinner under the stars with your feet buried in the warm sand.
Overnight at Greystoke Mahale (B, L, D)
