Serengeti Serena Lodge
“Set high on the saddle of tree-clad ridge commanding panoramic views over the endlessly rolling reaches and volcanic reefs of the Serengeti, the Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge is the ultimate fusion of traditional African architecture and world-class style. Drawing its inspiration from the circular ‘Rondavel’ dwellings and winding paths of a traditional Maasai village, the Lodge features thickly-thatched, stone-built rooms, spaciously set amongst groves of indigenous trees that are cooled by sparkling streams and papyrus-fringed ponds”

These include the black rhinoceros and the hippopotamus, which is very uncommon in the area. There also are many other ungulates: the wildebeest, zebra, eland and Grants and Thomsons Gazelles. Thre crater has the densest known population of lions. On the crater rim are leopards, elephants, mountain reedbucj and buffalo. In summer, enormous numbers of Serengeti migrants pass through the plains of the reserve, including 1.7 million wildebeest, 260,000 zebra, and 470,000 gazelles. Waterbuck occur mainly near Lerai Forest; Servals occur widely in the crater and on the plains to the west. Common in the reserve are lions, hartebeest, spotted hyenas and jackals”.
Ngorongoro Serena Lodge
“Perched on the jagged rim of the crater, wreathed in morning mist, camouflaged in river-stone and cloaked in indigenous creepers, the Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge is a triumph of ecological and architectural fusion. Sensitively constructed so as to take nothing from its environment whilst affording endless vistas over the heat-shimmering reaches of the crater below, the clustered boulder-built buildings of the Lodge hug the crater rim, linked by rope-lashed timber walkways that skirt the buttressed roots of ancient, liana-hung trees”.
After early breakfast , proceed for full day crater tour with picnic lunches. Dinner and overnight Lake Manyara Serena Lodge.
Lake Manyara Serena Lodge
“Standing high on the bluff of a dramatic ochre and terracotta streaked cliff above the flamingo-frosted expanse of Lake Manyara’s gleaming alkaline waters, the Lodge commands panoramic views across the volcano-studded floor of the Great Rift Valley”.
Wildlife in Lake Manyara National Park
“Apart from the tree climbing lions and large concentration of elephants, Large buffalo, wildebeest and zebra herds congregate on these grassy plains, as do giraffes – some so dark in coloration that they appear to be black from a distance. Squadrons of banded mongoose dart between the acacias, while the diminutive Kirk’s dik-dik forages in their shade. Pairs of klipspringer are often seen silhouetted on the rocks above a field of searing hot springs that steams and bubbles adjacent to the lakeshore in the far south of the park”.

Afterwards, visit Zanzibar Museum where David Livingstone’s first impression of the island can be read through his written journals and potent letter back home.

Friendly and informed guides will escort you on a walking tour of the spice farms, picking bunches of leaves, fruit and twigs from bushes and trees, inviting you to smell or taste them to guess what they are.Almost all the ingredients of the average kitchen spice rack can be found on this tour. Local children weave small ‘gifts’ from palm leaves as they follow you around and will quickly scamper up a coconut palm to cut a fresh coconut for you”.

After the tours, you will be transferred back to the airport for flight back to Dar es Salaam, where you will connect with your international flight back home.
