  • Day 2 - Lake Manyara National Park

    This morning, you’ll journey across the Great Rift Valley to Lake Manyara, acclaimed by Hemingway as “the loveliest lake in Africa.” It’s also home to more than 400 bird species and numerous large mammals including elephant, giraffe, hippo, wildebeest, zebra and the fearsome Cape buffalo. Settle in to your luxury villa at Kilimamoja Lodge and join our expert safari guide on your first bush walk and game drive. After Sundowner cocktails and an elegant dinner, head out again for a thrilling night safari to track nocturnal animals. Meals B+L+D
  • Day 3 - Onward to Ngorongoro Crater

    Big game is just one facet of Africa that will inspire you; this morning’s visit to spend time with students and staff at a school is another, providing memorable insight into the challenges and rewards of life in Tanzania. Continue to Lemala Ngorongoro; perched on the crater’s rim, our luxury safari camp offers your first look at the captivating beauty of the world’s largest intact caldera. After lunch, tear yourself away from the view to visit a Maasai village. This evening, a chief’s son offers his own personal insight into Maasai culture. Meals B+L+D
  • Day 4 - Wildlife on the Crater floor

    There is no place anywhere on the planet that is quite like Ngorongoro Crater c, and it offers an absolutely unique environment for wildlife viewing. With its vast expanses of open grassland surrounded by steep cliffs, the crater floor is easy for game officials to patrol and the result is abundant wildlife including rare species like black rhino and cheetah. Because our camp enjoys a prime location by the Lemala Crater Access Route, you’ll descend quickly this morning for a spectacular game drive before other visitors have even arrived on the crater floor! Meals B+L+D

  • Day 5 - To Olduvai Gorge and the Central Serengeti

    Traveling this morning into the unique terrain of Olduvai Gorge, you’ll learn about the passions that drove Louis and Mary Leakey to their remarkable 1.8 million-year-old fossil discoveries. Continue your journey into the vast expanse of the Central Serengeti c, unequaled for its beauty and the concentration of its wildlife - including Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino and Cape Buffalo. In addition to these Big 5 animals, so named not for their size but because safari hunters considered them to be the most difficult and dangerous to track, the Serengeti is home to numerous other herbivores and the fierce predators which are rarely far behind. Enjoy a game drive before relaxing with Sundowner cocktails and an elegant dinner at the exclusive Lemala Ewanjan. Meals B+L+D
  • Day 6 - Ballooning Over the Serengeti

    Animals, too, have their regular routines and this morning’s hot air balloon safari in the sharp clear light of dawn is an amazing time to gaze down as the wildlife of the Serengeti greets another day. Touch back down for a champagne breakfast and a morning game drive. Back at camp, you’ll have ample time to relax and share your impressions of Africa with your fellow adventurers. A late afternoon safari drive promises more encounters with the wide variety of primates, birds, horned bovines, wild dogs, ungulates and big cats that roam the Serengeti. Meals B+L+D
  • Day 7 - Follow the game across the Serengeti

    Enjoy a morning safari drive as we take you into another remote sector of the Serengeti; depending upon the season and to follow the Great Migration herds as they make their way across the vast plains, you’ll travel to either Lemala Ndutu in the Southern Serengeti or Lemala Mara to the North. (Note: When the Migration is in the Central Serengeti, our guests will continue their stay at Lemala Ewanjan.)
     
    With animals constantly on the move in their inexorable quest for food and water, your camp’s setting affords unmatched game viewing at any time of year. Set out on an afternoon game drive followed by cocktails and dinner.  Meals B+L+D
     
  • Day 8 - Serengeti National Park

    The Maasai call it Siringitu - "the place where the land moves on forever." Indeed, these wide open expanses are awe-inspiring in their natural beauty. But the Serengeti is also renowned for its extraordinary concentration of plains game - including of course the Big Five. So expect your morning and afternoon safari drives to be heart-pounding and inspiring. And in the company of our engaging, impassioned and knowledgeable safari guides, today's activities will also deepen your understanding and appreciation for Africa's abundant natural wealth. As dusk descends, enjoy Sundowner cocktails and a candle-lit dinner under the darkening sky. Meals B+L+D
  • Day 9 - Return to Arusha

    Transfer to the airstrip for your included flight to Arusha. After lunch at the Arusha Coffee Lodge, set on one of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantations, we’ll take you to the airport for your flight.  Meals B+L

    What a wonderful trip! My Safari to Tanzania & add on trip to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe was a trip of a lifetime. I saw an incredible variety of animals in numbers I did not anticipate. It was indeed an incredible trip. Our Safari guide, George, was so informed and made every effort to give us the best Safari experience. Alexander & Roberts is the BEST! I cannot say enough about how efficient and accommodating Kristina & Tom of A&R were. When we had questions or small issue Kristina & Tom were right on it. Alexander & Roberts is highly recommended. -SPB (Sarasota, Fl)

  • Sheila from NY gives this tour 

    We loved watching the animal migration, and we were fortunate to see "the Big Five" on our game drives. The sunrise balloon flight was great, soaring over the land just as the sun was coming up. Plus the champagne was flowing at breakfast following the ride. Waking up one morning to a group of lions resting outside our tents. We ate well, food was prepared daily by our camp chef. We visited two local schools. One member of our group is tall - 6'5". the looks on the children' faces as they saw him exiting the van - cute, very cute. Our guide Adam was awesome! His knowledge about plants, birds and the animals was outstanding.
