Day 1: Arusha

Kili Villa Location Map

Kili Villa is located on a private golf and wildlife estate and offer a relaxing start or end to a safari in Tanzania. Located just outside Arusha, which is the gateway to some of Tanzania's best National Parks, Kili Villa also boasts access to Tanzania’s only 18 hole championship golf course. The property is located only 45 minutes from Arusha and Kilimanjaro International Airport, and within 15 minutes of the Arusha National Park.

There is plenty to do here - head off for a round of golf, take a tour of a fragrant coffee plantation in Arusha or work up a sweat hiking and canoeing around Kilimanjaro and Lake Duluti.

Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced rider, there is also an opportunity to enjoy a horse ride. Those with little riding experience can enjoy a gentle hack along dusty tracks where wildebeest and antelopes graze contentedly. Led by experienced guides, you can explore the meandering paths, spotting a rich array of wildlife along your way. Regularly seen is one of the most elegant mammals found in Tanzania, the gerenuk. The morning rides departs at 08:00 and the afternoon rides departs at 14:30, usually lasting around 2 hours. Riding times are flexible, however these are the best hours of the day to be out in the bush on horseback.

The main hotel has 10 bedrooms. There is a main guest lounge and dining area, and a swimming pool. Afternoon tea is served on the patio and sundowner cocktails can be enjoyed around the pool area.  After dinner, the fire beckons with the promise of a nightcap to wrap up your day at Kili Villa before retiring to your room ready to dream of Africa with the unique night sounds to lull you into a deep sleep.

In addition, 4 villas are ideal for families or groups travelling together, and are booked on an exclusive use basis. Villa Kudu can sleep up to 7 people; The Lodge, Villa Tembo Mtoni and Villa Agame Pacha can all sleep up to 10 people.

AndBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge

Ngorongoro Crater

Days 2 - 3: Ngorongoro Crater

AndBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge Location Map

AndBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge has one of the best positions - it is situated right on the rim of the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, with breathtaking views across the plains and down into the volcanic crater itself. With ever-changing views as mists swirl and clouds scurry over the huge wildlife cauldron below, the location is truly breathtaking. 

Due to the time that it takes to descent to the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater, only one daily game drive is conducted. Guests leave in the early morning in closed safari vehicles with pop-up roofs, accompanied by an expert ranger.

A scenic drive to the crater floor allows plenty of time to admire the spectacular views. The road descends through the lush forests that blanket the rim and upper slopes of the Crater, where buffalo and elephant may be spotted.  Once inside the crater, game drives explore the grassy crater floor, the haunting fever tree forest, the banks of Lake Magadi, as well as the marshes that surround it.  Thanks to the incredible density of wildlife in the crater, this is one of the few game drives where guests can reasonably expect to see all the members of the Big 5 in a single drive.

Divided into 3 camps, 30 suites with banana leaf ceiling and grass roofs provide an intimate and exclusive experience. An eclectic blend of teak panelling, Victorian furnishings and whimsical African touches creates a sumptuous atmopshere that is as elegant and unique as the crater itself. Leather chairs recline in front of a lit fireplace and raw silk curtains screen a private veranda. Even the gigantic bathtub set under its hand-beaded chandelier and the massive round shower offer tantalising glimpses of the world's most famous caldera.

Each camp has its own main sitting and dining areas for guests, with private butlers who provide warm, personal service.

The family suite features 2 suites linked via a closed walkway, which allows access between the two rooms while still maintaining complete privacy.

AndBeyond Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp

The Serengeti

Days 4 - 5: The Serengeti

AndBeyond Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp Location Map

AndBeyond Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp sits in a remote corner of the mighty Serengeti, right on the banks of a bywater of the Grumeti River.

As dawn breaks over the Serengeti, a gentle tap on your door will wake you to the delights of a new day. Set out in an open 4x4 safari vehicle in the company of your guide - if the Great Migration is passing through the area, your guide will catch up with it and attempt to catch the hundreds upon thousands of wildebeest and zebra as they bravely cross the Grumeti River, risking the jaws of some of Africa's largest crocodiles.

Even if the Migration is not in the area, the Grumeti region has excellent resident game. The area is particularly rich in predators, and massive lion prides and extensive clans of hyena numbering up to a hundred are frequently spotted. The river also attracts large herds of buffalo and elephant, while the open plains are the ideal habitat for cheetah. Riverside drives are bound to spot the massive crocodiles that the Grumeti River is renowned for, while birders will be amazed by the number of endemic species found here. The thickets near the camp are home to colobus monkeys, which cannot be seen anywhere else in the Serengeti, and this area also plays host to a far lesser known migration, which sees large numbers of topi antelope move across the plains.

After lunch back at the lodge, head off again in search of the wildlife in the cooler late afternoon. The herds head out to drink before settling down for the night, while the predators are warming up for the night's hunting.

The camp sits among tall evergreen trees right at the water's edge. The 10 flamboyant safari tents are a blaze of colour inside, with quirky touches and tongue-in-cheek surprises. Al fresco showers are open to the sun and stars, while the calls of hippo provide a nightly serenade. There is also one family unit that can accommodate 2 adults and 3 children, consisting of 2 luxury tents that are connected by an enclosed walkway made of wood and canvas.

The main guest areas consist of a colourful open-fronted sitting and dining area and domed bar, all adorned with Yoruba beaded artefacts. Traditional jikos (fires) and outdoor ovens produce mouth watering aromas and dinner under a billion stars. The spacious decks are perfect for sundowners overlooking the river, and romantic private dinners at the swimming pool can be arranged for any special occasion.

Four Seasons Safari Lodge

The Serengeti

Days 6 - 7: The Serengeti

Four Seasons Safari Lodge Location Map

Located in the heart of the Central Serengeti's wide open plains where Africa's Big 5 roam across the endless landscape, you will find the exclusive Four Seasons Safari Lodge. Perched on a series of elevated platforms and walkways, the lodge is set next to an active waterhole, where you can watch the wildlife coming down to drink during the day from the main viewing deck or even from your room balcony.

Fuel up before your morning game drive with a breakfast buffet filled with locally sourced, African-inspired flavours and international favourites. Enjoy lunch while drinking in the sweeping views of the Serengeti while sharing platters of African tapas, homemade pizzas or fresh salads, then head out for an afternoon game drive. As the sun sets over the Serengeti, return to the lodge for a sundowner drink in the bar, before joining other guests in the Boma for an authentic African feast around an open-air firepit, or take your pick from live cooking stations in the main restaurant.

The unique Discovery Centre is part museum and part lecture theatre, offering an interactive experience where you can learn about the wildlife, history and people of the Serengeti. Situated in the main building, the Centre's focal point is an interactive map of the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, which highlights the movements of the Great Migration.

There are  77 spacious guest rooms, suites and private villas to suit everyone. Local textiles and artwork, four-poster beds with mosquito netting and elevated, open-air sundecks help keep you in constant touch with the Serengeti, without sacrificing the modern comforts of air conditioning, flat-screen TVs and high-speed internet. Thanks to infrared cameras, you are notified on your bedroom television when animals are approaching the watering hole, which means you’ll never miss out on seeing elephants, herds of buffalo or troops of baboons playing in their natural habitat.

Inbetween game drives, relax around the free-form infinity pool, enjoy a spa treatment, go on a guided bush walk, or work out in the fitness centre.

For an additional cost, what better way to take in the stunning Serengeti landscape than from the air? Wake up early and depart for an hour-long, sunrise, hot-air balloon flight over the savannah, followed by a champagne breakfast in the bush.
