Northern Circuit: Ultimate Tanzania

This is a classic Northern Circuit safari including Lake Manyara, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. Luxurious &Beyond properties ensure fantastic locations, superb hospitality and supreme comfort. Stay in a quirky treehouse suite in Lake Manyara, in a luxury mobile tented camp on the plains of the Serengeti and in a spectacular stone and thatch lodge on the sunrise rim of the crater.

Safari highlights include beautiful Lake Manyara with its tree-climbing lions, seeing the Serengeti big cats and possibly catching the wildebeest migration (depending on the time of year) and visiting the floor of the UNESCO World Heritage Ngorongoro Crater. What better way to end your safari than by flying to the white sand beaches of exclusive Mnemba Island.

The Real Africa Trust works with leading conservation organisations to raise awareness as well as raising funds for specific projects. Partners include Save the Elephants, Save the Rhino, The Sheldrick Trust, Rhino Conservation Botswana and Animals saving Animals. You can find out more on our Conservation pages. On behalf of every client travelling, Real Africa makes a donation to the Trust. In addition, by staying at &Beyond properties you know you are travelling responsibly. &Beyond has an extensive programme of conservation. You will be able to witness some of their work during your stay at Mnemba Island, exploring the marine conservation area, glimpsing the rare Suni and Ader's Duiker, both of which breed on the island, and hopefully seeing the giant coconut crabs which are studied here.

Safari Itinerary

DAY 1 - 2

Lake Manyara
Depending on your international flight and the time of arrival you can either overnight in Arusha, travelling on to Lake Manyara on Day 2 (for a two night stay), or travel directly to Lake Manyara, arriving in time for lunch and then an afternoon game-drive before dinner. On your second day you have time to relax, to enjoy your wonderful treehouse suite and to explore this very scenic park, from the soda lake to fresh water forest.

DAY 3 - 4

Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast you will depart for the Ngorongoro Crater, which is a UNESCO protected World Heritage Site and home to nearly 25,000 animals. The lodge, perched on the eastern rim of this stunning extinct volcano has the most incredible views, while on the floor of the unbroken caldera below you'll find lush green savannah and an incredibly density and diversity of wildlife. You descend the walls of the crater at first light, a descent of 600m, and enjoy a full day on safari with a picnic lunch before returning to your lodge for a feast by the fire. The crater is unique. This multi-use-conservation area safeguards both the wildlife and the environment while also allowing the Maasai to go about their traditional pastoral lifestyle.

DAY 5 - 7

The Serengeti
Today you will depart for the world famous Serengeti, flying from Lake Manyara airstrip to the Serengeti. Serengeti Under Canvas is a luxury mobile tented camp in the Serengeti National Park - the camp moves seasonally between Ndutu in the south to central Grumeti and Seronera, on to Kogatende in the far north. This way you are always in a prime area with a very good chance of seeing the migration. The camp is one of the most luxurious in the Serengeti complete with chandeliers!
