Accommodation

During this safari tour, you will be accommodated at various lodges in Lake Manyara, Serengeti, and Tarangire national parks, and Ngorongoro Crater.

Lake Manyara Wildlife Lodge

Lake Manyara Wildlife Lodge is strategically located on the very edge of the vertiginous Western escarpment of the Rift Valley, affording magnificent views down across the whole lake. Lake Manyara Wildlife Lodge invites you to an unforgettable safari experience from its privileged location, unrivaled by any other, both for game viewing and scenery.

Elegantly designed as a two-level ensemble of buildings, its authentic traditional African style decorations create a unique atmosphere that perfectly combines extreme tranquility with the best of adventure-packed safari experiences.

From its privileged position, all the lodges' 100 guestrooms have stunning views across the tranquil and beautiful waters of the lake. The spectacular swimming pool situated in a panoramic setting is a privileged location to enjoy the invigorating fresh air and the breathtaking views of the Pink Lake.

Serengeti Sopa Lodge

Located on the edge of the escarpment overlooking the plains of the South-Western Serengeti National Park, home to thousands of wild and rare animals, Serengeti Sopa Lodge lies within an area of outstanding natural beauty.

It is an oasis of cool relaxation from the equatorial sun. The lodge allows its guests to experience magnificent sights and enjoy interaction with the land and animals difficult to find elsewhere, whilst at the same time enjoying the highest level of cuisine and hospitality.

Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge

Facing the always magnificent sunsets to the West and located at the highest point on Ngorongoro Crater’s rim, Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge stands well over half a kilometer above the crater floor and offers unparalleled views across this enormous caldera.

Themed around traditionally circular African houses with conical roofs and decorated with examples of Africa’s rich tapestry of artistic traditions by way of rich woodcarvings and sculptures, the lodge harmonizes perfectly with its dramatic surroundings.

But the drama does not just stop with the great outdoors. It also flows through the split level interiors of the main building which all offer an unsurpassed generosity of space while somehow managing to combine an almost magically welcoming ambiance of both warmth and coziness.

Tarangire Sopa Lodge

After enjoying a long leisurely game drive between herds of wild animals and along miles of Africa’s seemingly endless roads, you come over a slight rise and the lodge appears almost immediately below you.

Built to blend in with the vastness of its surroundings, Tarangire Sopa Lodge lies hidden among the kopjes, ancient baobabs, and grasses of the Tarangire National Park, home to the greatest concentration of elephants in Africa. Many can be seen around the lodge, allowing visitors a close encounter.

Location

Starting and ending in Arusha, this tour will take you through Lake Manyara, Tarangire, and Serengeti national parks, as well as Ngorongoro Crater.

Ngorongoro Crater

The jewel in Ngorongoro’s crown is a deep, volcanic crater, the largest un-flooded and unbroken caldera in the world. About 20 kilometers across, 600 meters deep, and 300 square kilometers in area, the Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtaking natural wonder.

The Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa’s most famous sites and is said to have the highest density of wildlife in Africa. Sometimes described as an eighth wonder of the world, the crater has achieved world renown, attracting an ever-increasing number of visitors each year.

You are unlikely to escape other vehicles here, but you are guaranteed great wildlife viewing in a genuinely mind-blowing environment. There is nowhere else in Africa quite like Ngorongoro.

Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera. Forming a spectacular bowl of about 265 square kilometers, with sides up to 600 meters deep, it is home to approximately 30,000 animals at any given time. The crater's rim is over 2,200 meters high and experiences its own climate.

From the high vantage point it is possible to make out the tiny shapes of animals making their way around the crater floor far below. Swathes of clouds hang around the rocky rim most days of the year and it’s one of the few places in Tanzania where it can get chilly at night.

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world, unequaled for its natural beauty and scientific value. It has the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa.

The park was established in 1952. It is home to the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth - the great migration of wildebeest and zebras. The resident population of lions, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, and birds is also impressive.

There’s a wide variety of accommodations available, from luxury lodges to mobile camps. The park covers 5,700 square miles, (14,763 square kilometers), being larger than Connecticut, with at most a couple hundred vehicles driving around.

The park can be divided into three sections. The popular Southern / Central part (Seronera Valley) is what the Maasai called the serengit, the land of endless plains. It is classic savanna dotted with acacias and filled with wildlife. The Western corridor is marked by the Grumeti River and has more forests and dense bush. The North, Lobo Area, meets up with Kenya’s Maasai Mara Reserve and is the least visited section.

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park has some of the highest populations of elephants as compared to anywhere in Tanzania, and its sparse vegetation, strewn with baobab and acacia trees, makes it a beautiful and distinctive location to visit.

Located just a few hours’ drive from the town of Arusha, Tarangire is a popular stop for people traveling through the Northern safari circuit on their way to Ngorongoro and the Serengeti. The park extends into two game controlled areas and the wildlife is allowed to move freely throughout.
