Example Itinerary

This is an example itinerary. Our experts have all travelled widely in the region and will be happy to tailor any of our itineraries to suit your tastes and budget, or build a trip from scratch.

Day 1 ARRIVE ZANZIBAR

Upon arrival to Zanzibar, your personal guide will be ready to meet you and help you settle into your hotel in Stone Town on the famed spice island. Today you can rejuvenate after your flight with some sunset cocktails on the rooftop bar overlooking the labyrinth of winding streets and alleys of the old town.

Day 2 ZANZIBAR – SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

After an early breakfast, fly into the heart of the world-famous Serengeti National Park. Landing at a small airstrip, you’ll be met by the camp guides and immediately begin your epic safari experience, benefitting from an extended game drive and a picnic lunch stop on the savannah during the transfer to the one-of-a-kind rover bush camp. The solar-powered, low-impact camp will be your home for the next four days, which is packed up at the end of the season without leaving a trace.

Day 3 SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

Your first full day out on safari to explore these game-rich territories. The location of your mobile camp has been carefully chosen out in the remote reaches of the Serengeti to maximise the chances of spotting any of the Big Five that call the area home. During your time here, your days will generally be spent enjoying daily morning and afternoon games drives with your naturalist guide, broken up by mealtimes and some downtime back at the romantically rustic bush camp.

Day 4 SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

Getting up at the crack of dawn, you’ll head out along the Mara River in search of some of the park’s most famous residents, the wildebeest, that gather at the water’s edge ready to cross. Momentum builds as members from the confusion (a group of wildebeest) test the waters by rushing up to the river just to halt at the last moment and turn back around. Each run sends the pulse racing before they finally take the plunge, immediately followed by a rush of animals jumping into the melee from all directions in one of the most exhilarating wildlife spectacles anywhere on the planet. The morning’s events are followed by a sumptuous brunch back at the camp before heading out once more on an afternoon game drive.

Day 5 SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

On days with little riverside activity, your guide may choose instead to cross the Mara River to explore the wonderful gamelands on the other side where migrating animals may fill the plains and predators lie in wait for them; the famous Kopje rocks are a favourite hideaway for lions and leopards keeping an eye on their prey. Lunchtime is often spent lazing at the camp and soaking in the peaceful views from your private balcony during the midday sun. A spot of late afternoon tea provides a bit of energy before heading out on a shorter game drive later on, before a sundowner and dinner by the campfire in the evening.

Day 6 SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK – LAKE VICTORIA

Today you’ll transfer to your next camp just outside the national park, set up on the banks of Lake Victoria. This is a great bird-watching spot and when the lake floods the area surrounding this water-based camp, hippos can be seen wading and munching right under the camp’s walkways. Depending on the day’s timing, it may be possible to take small canoe-boats out to explore the peripheral channels this evening before dinner at the camp.

Little Okavango Camp Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 LAKE VICTORIA

Your last day in the Serengeti region, this morning you can enjoy a calm, cultural experience after days out in the wilderness and head to a local fishing village for a chance to meet some people! Early in the morning, fishermen and boat makers from surrounding tribes come together to barter and begin their day. Now making an additional income through tourism, you’ll be led by a local man and shown around the village. Returning via motorboat, there’ll be a stop for a wonderful brunch on the top deck of the lodge's observation tower looking through the tall papyrus grass to the glistening lake. Enjoy a final afternoon at leisure at the camp before dinner.

Day 8 LAKE VICTORIA – DEPART DAR ES SALAAM

Following breakfast, you’ll be transferred to the airstrip for your flight to the capital, Dar es Salaam, where your adventure ends.
