Itinerary: Starting Arusha Airport/ ending Zanzibar Airport

Day 1, 2 & 3: Serengeti National Park
Upon your arrival at Arusha Airport you will be met by a Safari Co. representative who will assist you in boarding your scheduled flight to Klein’s Airstrip. Your flight departs at 08:00 in the morning. A short game-drive transfer (10 minutes) will bring you to camp.

Spend three nights at Klein’s Camp. Accommodation is in a thatched cottage with en-suite hand basins, shower and w.c. Your stay is on a full board basis including scheduled activities and concession fees.
Activities include game-drives and nature walks in the Klein’s Camp private concession. The afternoon game-drives extend after sunset with the aid of a spotlight, returning to the camp after dark.

Klein’s Camp is set in an exclusive private concession deep in the heart of Maasai territory, neighbouring the buffalo-rich, northeastern Serengeti National Park – famed for its wildebeest and zebra Migration. Hidden among the bush-clad Kuka Hills, Klein’s Camp comprises ten intimate cottages of local rock and thatch with rich wooden floors and classic interiors. Each cottage has an en-suite bathroom with shower, twin hand-basin and w.c, and a private veranda with breathtaking views of the valley below. Guest areas include dining area with large open fireplace and beautifully furnished bar/sitting area, both with sweeping views of the valley and its surrounding hills. A plunge pool is tucked into the hillside and a crafts shop stocks locally made Maasai crafts. Day and night game-drives in open game-viewing vehicles lead by expert guides into the private concession – set aside for the exclusive use of Klein’s Camp guests – is the ultimate private Tanzanian safari with no other vehicles for miles around. Guests can choose to enjoy their safari on the Klein’s Camp Reserve or in the Serengeti National Park. Bush walks and extended hikes along the quartzite hills allow one to marvel at the scenery whilst sipping sundowners at the crest of the hill, and bush breakfasts at spectacular locations are a speciality.

Day 4 & 5: Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area
Enjoy an early morning game-drive and breakfast before your scheduled flight to Manyara Airstrip. A representative from Ngorongoro Crater Lodge will meet you for your road transfer of approximately 2 hours to the lodge.

Spend two nights at Ngorongoro Crater Lodge. Accommodation is in a sumptuous double suite with en-suite hand basins, bath, shower and private w.c. Each suite is tended by a butler. Your stay is on a full board basis including scheduled activities and park fees.
Activities include game-drives in the Ngorongoro Crater. Additional activities may be booked directly at the lodge, subject to extra cost and availability of vehicles, and include excursions to Olduvai Gorge and Shifting Sands and a visit to a Maasai village.

Perched on the edge of the famous Ngorongoro Crater at the eastern edge of the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is without doubt one of the most architecturally spectacular lodges in Africa. The Crater, considered one of the Wonders of the World, is a World Heritage Site and shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth – some of Africa’s last black rhino are protected within its rim and black-maned lions stalk the grasslands. Inspired in design by the Maasai mud-and-stick manyatta, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge comprises three separate and intimate camps, North Camp and South Camp (12 suites each) and Tree Camp (6 suites). The sumptuous suites are steeped in romance reminiscent of a bygone era, with stilted, handcrafted structures adorned in graceful antiques, grand chandeliers and Pan African treasures. All of this, however, remains subordinate to the magnificence of the verdant Crater views through the window of every room. Each suite is discreetly tended by a personal butler, who will bring you tea in bed, stoke your fireplace and even draw your bath, scattering the water with rose petals, ready for your return from your safari and lavish picnic on the Crater floor. Guest areas at each camp include sitting and dining areas, outdoor dining areas, viewing decks and a superb craft gallery, all with awe-inspiring views of the Crater below. Activities include a daily game-drive in closed game-viewing vehicles to the Crater floor and walks along the Crater rim. At an additional cost and subject to availability of vehicles, visits to local Maasai manyattas and excursions to the archaeologically significant Olduvai Gorge or fascinating Shifting Sands can be arranged.

Day 6, 7, 8 & 9: Mnemba Island
Enjoy an early morning breakfast. Transfer to Manyara Airstrip for your scheduled flight to Arusha Airport. Upon arrival at 12:20, you connect onto your scheduled flight to Zanzibar Airport where you will be met by a representative from Mnemba Island for your road and boat transfer of approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes to the lodge.

Spend four nights at Mnemba Island. Accommodation is in a beach banda on raised platforms, made of indigenous woven palm, palm fronds and fine basket weave with en-suite shower twin hand basin and separate w.c. Your stay is on a full board basis including scheduled activities.
Activities include scuba diving (2 dives per day), snorkelling, kayaking, salt water fly-fishing, wind-gliding, kites and windsurfing.

Situated on an intimate private island just off the north-eastern tip of Zanzibar, surrounded by its own atoll of coral reefs within a Marine Conservation Area, Mnemba Island Lodge offers privacy and rustic exclusivity unparalleled on the East African coastline. An hour-and-a-half drive from Zanzibar Airport or Stone Town brings you to the beach from where you wade knee-deep to an awaiting ski-boat for a 20-minute crossing to Mnemba Island. Ten secluded split-level beach bandas, built on platforms raised off the beach sand, carefully locate to ensure privacy, have been made of natural local materials, each featuring a spacious bathroom, with shower, twin hand-basins, and separate w.c. The elevated bedrooms are generously proportioned, and simply furnished with king sized, extra-length beds swathed in billowing muslin nets. Beach level verandas at each banda offer built-in barazas – perfect for afternoon siestas, comfortable chairs for reading, and a writing table. There are also outdoor swing beds, and private beach salas feature traditional Zanzibari loungers. The dining and bar areas have been built along organic lines, allowing unimpeded access to breathtaking sea views. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal to match Mnemba’s rustic beauty. Guests can enjoy snorkelling, windsurfing, kayaking and scuba diving, and between December and March Mnemba’s rare green turtles can be seen laying their eggs. Deep-sea fishing and PADI diving courses are available at an additional cost. A walk around the Island reveals a variety of sea birds whilst snorkelling amongst the coral reefs introduces one to the magnificent colourful aquatic world. Mnemba Island is closed annually during the monsoon season from 1 April to 31 May inclusive.
