Days 2-3: Masai Mara N.P.

Enjoy today and tommorow in the Masai Mara. Head out in the early mornings which is one of the best times to view game in the Mara as the animals are at their most active before the heat of the day kicks in. Back at the Lodge breakfast will be waiting for us on our return. After breakfast a morning by the pool or relaxing with a good book awaits. Alternatively, explore the grounds with a guide, spotting the smaller animals of the Mara on foot. After lunch another game drive out in the Reserve spotting and ticking off some of those must see animals from your list, return to the lodge for dinner.

Day 8: Serengeti N.P. - Ngorongoro Crater

Today we make our way to the Ngorongoro Highlands visiting Olduvai Gorge en route.

Arriving at your lodge enjoy dinner and a sundowner or two.

Lunch time at Limpopo Transfrontier Park

Day 9: Ngorongoro Crater

This morning early we head to the Ngorongoro Crater, descending into the crater floor itself, for an exciting game drive. We spend the morning exploring this fascinating wildlife amphitheatre, home to nearly 25,000 animals, which remain in the crater due to the constant supply of water from the springs. We conclude with a picnic lunch on the shores of the craters lake watching the wildlife. We then return to your lodge for a relaxing afternoon.

Day 10: Ngorongoro Crater - Zanzibar

Today we leave Ngorongoro behind and travel to Arusha for your onward flight to Zanzibar. Upon arrival here, you will be met and transferred to your hotel by beach.

Days 11-15: Zanzibar

Spend the next days at leisure, relaxing on the beautiful white sands and soaking up the sunshine. For those feeling active, there's a wide range of excursions available locally. Perhaps opt for a spot of snorkelling or scuba diving to see the incredible coral reefs teeming with exotic fish and perhaps the odd dolphin in the azure waters.

Day 16: Zanzibar

This morning you will be met by your driver and driven to Zanzibar Airport for your flight home. Sadly our arrangements come to an end. We hope you have enjoyed the magic that is Africa.
