Trip Summary and Itinerary Map
Every trip to Tanzania is different. At Brilliant Africa, our job is to listen to what your dream East African adventure looks like and then create a tailor-made itinerary to match your dreams, budget, and appetite for luxury and adventure.
The trip below is one example of what is possible in Tanzania, but get in touch with our team, and we'll help you understand if it's right for you.
Day 1: The Adventure Begins
Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport, we will meet you at the airport and transfer you to the lovely Katambuga House. This is a great base to relax after your international flight and get prepared for the adventure to come.
Day 2 - 3
The next morning, begin your journey through northern Tanzania as you game drive through Lake Manyara National Park, or visit the Mto Wa Mbu village before continuing towards the incredible Entamanu Ngorongoro. Set on the crater rim, the views from camp are extraordinary and being inside crater means you get quick and easy access to the crater floor for safari the next day.
You then have a full day out on safari in the Ngorongoro Crater. What once was a fiery, lava strewn, inhospitable area is now home to 25,000 large animals, including lion, black rhino, elephant, and giraffes.
Day 4 - 6
Next, jump in a light aircraft and fly to the northern reaches of the Serengeti National Park (there are some incredible views on this flight!). Touch down at the airstrip and game drive through the park towards Serengeti Safari Camp. The camp is a mobile-tented camp that moves throughout the season to follow the herds of the Great Migration, so you'll be in prime position to witness the migration activity and with a bit of luck see a river crossing!
Spend the next 3 nights at SSC. You will have a private guide and vehicle on safari here. We love the Nomad camps and they have a strong commitment to sustainability, their camps are stunning with incredible service and they are completely in line with our travel ethos.
Head out on morning and afternoon game drives, returning to the lodge for sundowners overlooking the savannah.
Finally, jump back into a light aircraft and head east to the beautiful Zanzibar archipelago. Spend the next 4 nights at the beautiful Zuri Zanzibar.
