From $7,850.00 p/person

Set your sights on a truly boutique-style Tanzania safari, with this luxury trip discovering the vast open spaces of the Tarangire National Park, the exceptional Ngorongoro Crater and the endless landscapes of the Serengeti. 

This 10-day trip will give you a true sense of adventure, leaving lasting romantic memories for a lifetime. 

Begin your trip in the bustling and vibrant town of Arusha, which lies on the gently rolling foothills that cascade down from the ever-present Mount Meru.

From here you’ll head into the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, a natural caldera that teems with life, and then head into the Serengeti, where the vast open plains – home to herds of antelope, zebra and wildebeest, as well as big cats, elephant and buffalo – is where you’ll end your safari.

Romantic Tanzania Safari

Your Itinerary

1 night in Arusha

Your Tanzania safari kicks off in the country’s largest coffee plantation, close to Arusha on the slopes of Mount Meru. A game drive in Mount Meru National Park, accompanied by a delicious picnic lunch, makes for a wonderful outing.

Take a stroll through the plantation on a “Bean to Cup” Coffee Estate Tour, or ask your hosts about excursions to the historical museum, Mount Meru and the foot of Kilimanjaro.

You can also choose to spend the afternoon at Cultural Heritage, which specialises in African crafts, carvings, gemstones and clothing.


Enjoy scrumptious meals in the Coffee Lodge lounge or sip on your favourite drinks in the bar area.

2 nights in Tarangire National Park

You will spend your next two days exploring the South-Eastern part of the spectacular Tarangire National Park.

Tarangire is slightly off the main safari circuit and thus provides a wonderful, uncrowded experience. It is considered one of the most scenic parks in Northern Tanzania, with diverse landscapes including African savannah, open woodlands, grassy green hills and rivers.

Tarangire is well known for its high density of elephants, striking baobab trees and tree-climbing lions – a particularly unusual sight in most parks!


Enjoy fireside communal meals in the dining room, whiskies around the campfire and safari tales told into the evening.

Olivers Camp - Explorer Safari


Olivers Camp

The 10 ensuite tents overlooking floodplain are decorated in earthy tones to mirror the landscape. Your private deck is the perfect place to sit with a cold drink and enjoy the stillness and serenity of the African bush.

3 nights in Ngorongoro Crater

From Tarangire, you’ll depart by transfer to the Ngorongoro Crater rim. Uncover a verdant paradise on the forested outer slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater, with expansive views of the Great Rift Valley.

The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the largest natural calderas in the world, and it is rich in animal and birdlife; indeed, it provides one of the highest concentrations of game in Africa.

Enjoy a full day crater tour as well as a guided nature walk, taking in the flamingo-filled salt lakes, lazy rhino at the edges, large, tusked elephants and rangy lions looking for their next meal.

Explore the forest areas that are inhabited by monkeys and elephant, the lake area, where you may see the flamingos and the open savannah where lions hunt for their next meal.


Enjoy afternoon tea in the garden with a delicious assortment of coffees, teas, fresh cream, and scones. In the evening, share stories over candle-lit dinners featuring English and Tanzanian-influenced cuisine.

Gibb's Farm - Explorer Safari


Gibb’s Farm

Gibb’s Farm is a charming lodge that has retained the atmosphere of a working farm and is located between Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Conservation area. Gibbs Farm is a real slice of old Africa, a genuine colonial farmhouse. Gibbs Farm is for people who are coming on safari to see Africa, not just to see animals.

3 nights in Serengeti National Park

From the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, you’ll head into the Serengeti National Park by scheduled flight. This is the prime location to witness thousands of wildebeest crash across the Mara River as part of their annual Great Migration.

The northern Serengeti is one of the most popular safari destinations in Africa, and for good reason. This is where the world-famous river crossings take place, as huge herds of migrating wildebeest head into Kenya, crossing the Mara River as one of the most dangerous parts of their journey, with crocodiles and hippos in the water and lions and other predators waiting on the river banks.

As the Mara River is just a few minutes from camp, guests can see all the action right from the camp doorstep.


Join us for a drink at the Serengeti’s first solar-powered microbrewery, then enjoy a sumptuous fire-side dinner.

Sayari Camp - Explorer Safari


Sayari Camp

Overlooking the golden plains, the 15 bright and spacious suites have walk-in showers, al fresco tubs and verandas on which you can laze away the afternoon with a book. Sayari’s rim-flow pool is set between natural rock formations for guests to cool off in while watching elephants and zebras ambling past camp.
