Boutique Serengeti & Ngorongoro Crater Safari with Elewana
For those looking for a truly boutique-style Tanzania Safari, this 6-night African vacation will fit the bill.
Enjoy unique properties in Arusha, the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti, with special emphasis on the Elewana experience: authentic game-viewing encounters, warm-hearted service, beautifully-appointed classic accommodation.
From Arusha, you’ll spend a few days on the crater floor, where the wildlife population is quite prolific. You’ll then head into the North-Western Serengeti’s Grumeti region, which is a spotlight area during the Great Migration. However, game-viewing in the Serengeti is incredible all year round, so your wildlife viewing is sure to be unparalleled.

2 nights at Ngorongoro Crater
Today you’ll head out into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a vast expanse that includes the iconic Ngorongoro Crater, one of Africa’s largest calderas and home to a wide variety and great density of game. From Elewana The Manor at Ngorongoro, you’ll head down onto the Crater floor for a half-day safari.
From lion prides, to small groups of rhino, buffalo and elephant, the game-viewing is excellent. The soda-lakes on the floor of the crater are also home to an incredible diversity of birdlife, including flamingos and pelicans.
Relax in the evenings with a sunset cocktail, before enjoying a delicious 3-course dinner, prepared with only the finest local ingredients from The Manor plantation.
WHERE YOU'LL STAY
Elewana The Manor at Ngorongoro
Situated adjacent to the incredible Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Elewana The Manor at Ngorongoro offers a classic, vintage safari experience, complete with cottage-style suites, luxurious amenities and private sun terraces.
2 nights in the Serengeti
From the Ngorongoro Crater you’ll head into the spectacular Serengeti National Park. Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp is ideally positioned next to the Grumeti River, which is well-known as one of the wildebeest crossing sites during the Great Migration, as well as being the home of many resident hippos.
The Serengeti is exceptionally vast; game-viewing is incredible all year round, so even if you are in the Grumeti region out of migration season, you will not be disappointed. Large lion prides prowl the savannah, cheetahs sprint, elephants march from waterhole to waterhole, and plenty of plains game – gazelle, giraffe, zebra and more – are waiting to be photographed.
The dining experience at Serengeti Migration Camp comes with a view! Overlook the Ndasiata Hills and the Grumeti River as you dine under canvas or al-fresco under the African night sky.
