Itinerary

Days 1 – 4: Into the Serengeti

Fly from Arusha Airport to your accommodation in the Serengeti – Serengeti Safari Camp – for 4 nights on a full board basis.

An early flight from Arusha Airport takes you onto the rolling plains of the southern Serengeti, home to migrating wildebeest in their hundreds of thousands. Your accommodation – Serengeti Safari Camp – is a seasonal one, moving every few months as it keeps pace with the migration. Amazing game viewing is therefore assured, and your guide takes you on morning and afternoon game drives to see it all. You’ll even have the chance to stay out on safari all day, enjoying lunch in the shade of a tree as the drama of the savannah plays out before you. Back at camp you’ll sit down to candle-lit suppers and sleep in a classic tented suite, complete with flush eco-toilet and hot water ‘safari shower’.

Days 5 – 7: Magical Mahale

Fly from the Serengeti to the Mahale Mountains – transfer by dhow to Greystoke Mahale for 3 nights on a full board basis.

It takes a morning’s flight and a dhow ride to get to Greystoke Mahale but the reward is an enchanting camp built on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. Behind the beach, forest-covered mountains rear skywards, home to troops of hooting chimpanzees, colourful birds and brilliant flocks of butterflies. Chimp trekking with expert guides is the main focus here but there’s time to explore the lake – you can even snorkel among tropical fish and find natural swimming pools in a quiet forest corner. Sunset dhow cruises complete the day. Your tented suite, one of only six at camp, faces the lake and has its own viewing deck.

Day 8: The Journey Ends

Depart Mahale after breakfast for your flight back to Arusha Airport.

After breakfast and farewells, you’ll board the camp’s dhow for a transfer to the local airstrip and a flight back to Arusha Airport for your onward connection.

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. 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.

Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

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

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.

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!

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.  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!

Chris (USA)
An incredibly well organised tour with no hassles whatsoever.

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.
