Safari Itinerary in Detail

Day 1: Arusha/ Kilimanjaro – Fly to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

After breakfast at your hotel in Arusha/ Kilimanjaro we transfer you to Kilimanjaro International Airport for your light-aircraft flight to the Manyara airstrip. A guide from The Highlands will drive you through coffee plantations towards the Ngorongoro Crater, a journey of 3 hours to reach The Highlands, enjoying a packed lunch on the way.

Stop at the viewpoint overlooking the crater to soak in the spectacular landscape and continue your drive around the rim until you reach the Olmoti Crater, where you will stay at The Highlands for the next two nights.

If you feel like stretching your legs, you can opt for a guided walk from the camp up to the rim of Olmoti Crater, passing through dense forest and waterfalls on the way.

Meal Plan {Lunch & Dinner}


Days 2, & 3: Ngorongoro Conservation Area

After an early breakfast, depart with your guide for the Ngorongoro Crater, a drive of around an hour until you reach the descent road. Spend the morning game-driving on the crater floor, exploring in search of the varied wildlife that lives here.

You’ll enjoy a picnic lunch during the heat of the day in a shady spot before driving back to The Highlands, where you can relax a little.

In the late afternoon, a guide will take you to one of the nearby Maasai villages, where you can learn more about this rich culture and take part in their afternoon activities, which often include visiting a market to support local traders or walk with the herders as they bring their cattle back to the boma for the night.

Depending on the time of year, guests may also be able to visit a local school.  You can also hike the Empakaai Crater – Descend into the Empakaai Crater with an NCA ranger and hike to the soda lake, famous for the pink flamingos that congregate around it turning the shores pink.

Due to its location, The Highlands is the only property that can offer a convenient half-day excursion here.

Days 4: Drive to Lake Manyara (3 Hours) – Fly to the Central Serengeti (45 Minutes)

Depart by road for the Manyara Airstrip, 3 hours away, where you will catch a flight to the central Serengeti, just 45 minutes away. Dunia Camp is situated near the Moru Kopjes, in the south of Tanzania’s central Serengeti National Park.

This elegant yet unpretentious camp is in a good area for seeing both the wildebeest migration between December and March, and the resident game of the central Serengeti all year round. Affectionately known as the “ladies camp”, it is Tanzania’s first and only safari camp to be fully led and run by female staff. It has a very inspiring atmosphere.

A guide from Dunia Camp will meet you at the airstrip and game-drive you back to camp, stopping at any wildlife sightings along the way. Settle into your tent before going on an afternoon game drive.

The Serengeti is impressive in terms of both the diversity and density of wildlife found here, so there is plenty to discover each day. Return to camp in the early evening for drinks around the campfire and dinner.

Accommodation Option Dunia Camp
Meal Plan {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}


Days 5 & 6: Central Serengeti

Safari activities at Dunia Camp take place in the early morning and late afternoon, when the wildlife is most active. You will explore with expert guides on game drives, looking for the big cats that have made the Serengeti famous as well as hippos wallowing in muddy pools and giraffe browsing the fresh shoots of an acacia tree.

In between, you will return to camp for a delicious lunch, and to have a siesta or catch up on a good book. Evenings are spent sharing stories of your day’s adventures with other guests around the dinner table.

Accommodation Option: Dunia Camp
Meal Plan {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}


Days 7, 8,9 & 10: Central Serengeti – Fly to either Serengeti Ndutu (Dec-Mar) or Kogatende (Jun-Nov)

After breakfast, you will be driven to the airstrip for your morning flight to either Ndutu (Dec-March) or Kogatende (June-November). The mobile Olakira Migration Camp follows the wildebeest migration around the Serengeti, from the epic river crossings in the north to the southern plains where they give birth to thousands of calves each year.

On arrival you will be met and transferred with a game drive to Olakira Camp, arriving in time for lunch. Afternoon partake in game activity. Between June and November, Olakira is in the north to witness the crossing of the Mara River. 

Here, watch thousands of wildebeest take a leap of faith into the water, facing hungry Nile crocodiles and cantankerous hippos. When the herds are on the move, the air is full of grunting, thudding hooves and billowing dust.

From December until March, we move camp to the southern plains of the Serengeti, where the wildebeest go to give birth and graze on lush grass, and predators such as lions and cheetahs gather to prey on the young.  

Even at night, the Olakira Migration Camp experience is special. The mesh-covered stargazing tents allow guests to sleep under a sky of glittering stars.  

Accommodation Option: Olakira Migration Camp
Meal Plan {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}


Day 11: Serengeti – Fly to Kilimanjaro International Airport (2.5 Hours)

Enjoy a final breakfast in camp before a short drive to the airstrip for your late-morning flight back to Arusha or Kilimanjaro Airport. The flight will likely stop a couple of times on the way to drop off/ pick up passengers, and the total journey will be approximately 2.5 hours.

You will land at Kilimanjaro International Airport so you can simply collect your luggage and check in for your international flight home.
