Itinerary

Day 1: Settle into your Safari

Arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport & sit back on a transfer to Onsea House in Arusha. Enjoy 1 night on a full board basis.

If it’s been a long journey to get to Tanzania, then Onsea House is the perfect remedy. Located just outside Arusha, this owner-managed boutique guesthouse has a relaxed and homely feel. Sit down to lovely views from Onsea’s roof terrace – you’ll be treated to views of Mount Meru on a clear day – and soak up the safari atmosphere. There’s a pool and sun loungers, a well-stocked bar and thanks to Onsea’s kitchen team, you’ll enjoy some of the best cooking in the area.

Days 2 – 3: Land of Giants – Tarangire

Road transfer to Oliver’s Camp in Tarangire National Park for 2 nights on a full board basis.

You’ll leave Onsea after breakfast for Tarangire National Park and Oliver’s Camp, tucked away in the park’s remote and little-visited south-east. With only 10 tents available, each with private views and en suite bathroom, Oliver’s delivers safari-exclusivity in an area famous for its concentration of elephants. You’ll drive through stands of enormous baobab trees on the lookout for buffalo herds and big cats; morning and afternoon game drives are balanced with walking safaris for a different perspective.

Days 4 – 5: A Big 5 Discovery

Road transfer to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area & the Highlands Camp for 2 nights on a full board basis.

The landscape opens up as you travel onto the Ngorongoro Highlands, a vast area of savannah shared by wildlife and Maasai herders. Your accommodation is the Highlands Camp, with its astonishing setting on the slopes of the extinct Olmoti volcano. Top of the to-do list is a game drive into the Ngorongoro Crater, home to the Big 5 as well as hippos and hyenas. But there’s much to do on the Highlands as well, including visiting Maasai communities and half-day hikes. You’ll spend the nights in innovative eco-tents, complete with flush toilets and hot running water, fronted by a floor-to-ceiling glass window to allow the views to flood in.

Days 6 – 7: The Serengeti Migration

Road transfer to Ubuntu Camp, a seasonal safari camp in the Serengeti for 2 nights on a full board basis.

With no fewer than three separate locations in the Serengeti, Ubuntu Camp ensures it has ringside seats for the world’s greatest natural event – the wildebeest migration. By following the flow of the herds, the camps puts you right at the centre of all the drama and your chances of seeing predators in action are very high. There are only eight tents at Ubuntu, simply but comfortably furnished with all you need. As well as game drives, you can also visit local Maasai communities for an insight into life in big game country.

Day 8: The Journey Ends

Transfer after breakfast to the local airstrip for a flight back to Arusha for your onward connection.

Depending on your travel arrangements, you may have time for an early morning game drive before transferring to the airstrip for your flight back to Arusha and your onward connection.

Reviews

Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip.
Our expectations were exceled!!! We’ve been to three different Wilderness lodges in Botswana and Zambia. It was more than WOW.
The lodges itself, the service, the food, the kids (8+10) care and the animal world. All the connections by plane, boat and car were perfectly organized. There was always a responsible person waiting for us. We felt very special from the first to the last day. We highly recommend safari-online.com and we’ll do our next Wilderness tour definitely with them.

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved.
Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on! This year we went back to Luangwa and had a terrific six days there. It was very dry so a slightly different environment than in past years when we have found October to be more conducive to wildlife viewing. Walter couldn’t have done more for us!

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

I have a severe intolerance to chemical products such a fabric softener. This can create difficulties when you travel. But the team at Safari Online made sure that all the destinations on our itinerary met our unusual demands. Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

Safari Online made our fantastic family holiday dream come true!!

Safari Online have been nothing but professional and incredible from the time we made our first enquiry to the last day of our stunning holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Walter. We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!

It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

I have so many wonderful things to say about Walter and Safari Online that I don’t even know where to begin! Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Actually got to see the Big 5 which was perfect. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Very helpful good suggestions for holiday ideas always available for questions good organising

Excellent service and they supplied good suggestions for our holiday they also organised all internal flights and arranged check in for us so we had no worries while on holiday. Tongazebi was one place we stayed in a tree house amazing and friendly place our safari was in Savanna Lodge an incredible place to stay and amazing safari we got to see the big five and many others birds and animals. All very close you would not believe how close you get to the wildlife. We are so happy that this was organised for as we have had a most memorable holiday staying at wonderful places thanks to Sabrina and Safari Online. Would recommend Safari Online to organise your holiday.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!
