Detailed Safari Itinerary

Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport you will be met by our representative and transferred to Onsea House for check in, briefing and overnight stay.

Your accommodation, Onsea House is a privately owned, privately run luxury bed & breakfast in Arusha, Tanzania and is the perfect safari base or place to stay for those looking to climb Kilimanjaro.  The level of comfort and quality of service has turned it more into a small boutique hotel than a guesthouse.

Day 3 - Ngorongoro Crater

Today you will get a chance to enjoy a whole day game viewing drive in Ngorongoro Crater with picnic lunch boxes.

Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken caldera in the world.  The cone is believed to have collapsed nearly two million years ago, and while the cone was standing, it could have been taller than Mount Kilimanjaro.  The crater (1,800 feet deep and 102 square miles) is a microcosm of East African scenery with abundant wildlife; more than 25,000 larger animals, mostly zebra and wildebeest.  This is also the best place in Tanzania to see magnificent black-maned lion and black rhino.  A soda lake changes size depending on the rains that are the lifeline of this amazing land.

Colourful flamingoes and more than 100 species of birds can be found here and not in the Serengeti.  Patience may also reward you with glimpses of leopard, cheetah, hyena, jackal, elephant, warthog, buffalo, impala, buffalo, hartebeest, eland and lots of other antelopes.  As you descend into the crater, you may see the local Maasai as they take their cattle down the steep walls of the crater.

Day 4 - Ngorongoro Conservation Area / Serengeti National Park

The Singita Faru Faru Lodge is situated on a slope alongside the riverbank in the Grumeti Reserves.  The exclusive, luxury accommodation on offer at Faru Faru Lodge is surrounded by a variety of animal species and bird life.  Two rim-flow swimming pools and a large viewing deck overlook the watering hole where the animals come to visit while a Swahili-inspired beach offers the ideal place for some serious rest and relaxation.

The cutting-edge design and comfortable furnishings add to the rustic, yet elegant appeal of the Singita Faru Faru Lodge.

Days 5 & 6 - Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park (3,646,500 acres) is the jewel in the crown of Tanzania’s protected areas with over three million large mammals roaming its plains.  The Serengeti has come to symbolise paradise to all, including the local Maasai, who have grazed their cattle on the vast grassy plains for generations.  To the Maasai, it is Siringitu, “the place where the land goes on forever”.  Today, the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and the Maasai Mara Game Reserve across the border in Kenya, protect the greatest and most varied collection of terrestrial wildlife on earth, and one of the last great migratory systems still intact.
