Look no further - B&R assembled a private trip for 18 of us from Prague to Vienna and they nailed it. Nice job.

Day 1

Arrive in Tanzania and settle in at your tropical hotel, which doubles as a working coffee farm. The Legendary Lodge is the perfect place to unwind after your long flight, so kick back, relax and get ready for tomorrow!

Day 2

Start the day with a visit to a traditional Maasi Boma and stop for coffee at the historic Arusha Hotel. The day also features an exciting walk through Tarangire National Park which hosts 1 elephant per kilometer (side note: the park is 2,500 square kilometers!)

Day 3

Today’s walking safari brings you face-to-face with elephant, giraffe, buffalo and even lions! Not to worry though—walking safaris are safe. If you’re yearning for more, you can opt for a night game drive after an evening by the campfire.

Day 4

After a game drive through picturesque villages along the Great Rift Valley we arrive at Lemala Ngorongoro. This camp is set in an ancient acacia forest on the rim of Ngorongoro Crater, providing the opportunity for authentic encounters with the Maasai people and nomadic bushmen.

Day 5

A dawn crater drive brings us face-to-face with lions, black rhino, massive bull elephants and hyena (and fantastic shots of the sunrise over the crater walls). The excitement continues into the afternoon at the base of Mt. Makarot where guides provide insight into the Maasai way of life.

Day 6

Spend the next three days exploring the magnificent Serengeti!

Day 7

Hop in a safari vehicle and game drive, or venture the region on foot—either way, this world wonder is not to be missed.

Day 8

After your safari explorations, retire to camp and as you drift into sleep, listen for the faint roars of lions coming from the distance.

Day 9

Hop on our own personal dhow (a small sailing vessel) that will bring us to camp at the Mahale Mountains where we’ll stay for next three days.

Day 10

Spend your time at the camp hiking, tracking chimps, swimming, bird-watching – the possibilities are endless.

Day 11

Moor near the shoreline and spend the day watching hippos swim underwater close to the boat. A first-hand experience unlike any other.

Day 12

After breakfast, say goodbye to beautiful Mahale and catch a dhow to the airstrip for a flight back to Arusha to depart for home.

Legendary Lodge, Arusha

Set in lush tropical gardens on a working coffee farm just outside Arusha the Legendary Lodge features six beautiful garden cottages, each with an inspiring view of Mount Meru from its own private veranda. Designed with a unique blend of African arts and crafts, combined with old, colonial-style luxury, the cottages offer king sized beds, a separate lounge with fireplace and ensuite bathrooms with deep tubs and refreshing showers.

Oliver’s Camp, Tarangire National Park

Located in the remote southern region of Tarangire National Park, this intimate 8-tented luxury camp is the perfect base from which to explore your surrounding on foot or in traditional safari vehicle. Off-road adventures, night drives, walking safaris and wilderness 'fly camps' are all on offer in this slice of untamed Tanzania.

Lemala Ngorongoro, Ngorongoro Crater

The camp offers accommodation under canvas in only 8 luxury tents and 1 family tent, which ensures seclusion in a pristine forest environment. Each spacious tent is fitted with a gas heater, large single or king-size beds with warm duvets, wooden flooring with rugs, 24-hour solar lighting, en-suite bathrooms with a dressing area, flush toilet and a large safari shower.

Faru Faru Lodge, Grumeti Reserves

Set in Grumeti Reserves, Singita Faru Faru Lodge is a true slice of paradise. The 7 one bedroom suites are built on a gently sloping hill positioned on the renowned migratory route. Informal and unconventional, the lodge is a mix of contemporary, organic style with a twist of luxury. With such close proximity to the river and plains, guests have the unique opportunity to experience a very close connection with the wilderness.

Greystokes Mahale, Mahale Mountains National Park

Greystoke Mahale has just 6 wood and thatch bandas set on the edge of the forest line at the base of the mountains. Each one has an en-suite bathroom - accessible by a short boardwalk - with hot and cold running water, strong showers and flush toilets. There is also a dressing room and upstairs chill-out deck. Dine in the main mess banda on the beach and enjoy sundowners in the bar on the rocks at the end of the beach.
