Tanzania Classic Safari

This deluxe safari provides you with an opportunity to explore the best of Tanzania in supreme comfort and style, with stays at the extraordinary Serena Lodges—the finest in Tanzania—and the luxurious Kirawira Tented camp in the Western Serengeti.  Visit Lake Manyara with its tree-climbing lions…view the 12-mile wide rim and 102-square-mile floor of the Ngorongoro Crater, which offers abundant year-round game viewing…and the Serengeti, a World Heritage Site that translates to "endless plains" in the Masai language. If you visit the western corridor of the S erengeti from July to September, both the crowds and herds of wildebeest dwindle, but you can perhaps better experience the true vastness and remoteness of these expansive plains, yet still enjoy abundant wildlife.

Day 1: Arusha
Arrive in Arusha, Tanzania and transfer to Kigongoni Lodge, a mountain top retreat with views of Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru. Kigongoni Lodge is located on an historic 70-acre coffee farm near Arusha, amid natural forest. Sitting on a hilltop with lush gardens, the lodge offers breathtaking views of Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Meru.  Tucked between the trees are eighteen cottages, built in traditional African styles and materials.  The rooms, cocktail lounge, and restaurant - all with fireplaces – are furnished in an intimate and comfortable manner, maximizing the site’s unique views and natural features.

Kigongoni Lodge has been developed in harmony with, and respect for, local community values, heritage and aspirations.

Your stay at Kigongoni will give you an authentic, homely experience and true sense of Tanzania, while providing an opportunity to participate in activities that contribute to the sustainable development of local communities.  (D)
