We designed this Tanzania Safari Tours: Ultimate Northern Circuit Package for a couple celebrating the husband’s 60th birthday. They wanted to see the highlights of Tanzania while staying in unique, luxurious accommodations. This trip gave them the best of nature, wildlife, and incredible luxury.
They started their tour at Legendary Serengeti Mobile Camp to see the Great Migration. This camp moves locations throughout the year to follow the migration of millions of wildebeest and other grazers across the vast plains of the Serengeti. All their game drives at this camp were conducted in a private vehicle with their own guide and tracker, giving them the utmost freedom to explore the area as they pleased and catch amazing, exclusive wildlife sightings. Then they transferred to beautiful Mwiba Lodge on the outskirts of the Serengeti for 2 nights.
Continuing their Tanzania Safari Tours: Ultimate Northern Circuit Package, they flew to the Ngorongoro Crater to stay at the gorgeous Gibb’s Farm. This unique lodge is nestled among 10 acres of working farmland and is famous for its farm-to-fork cuisine. They took an incredible guided hike to the Ngorongoro Crater rim, where they were treated to postcard-worthy views of the crater below.
Next, they traveled to a private reserve near Tarangire National Park for 2 nights at Little Chem Chem, a boutique tented camp where giraffes and other wildlife are known to stroll through the property. They had game drives in Tarangire and in a large private reserve shared between just 10 guests, which made for an exclusive and intimate safari experience. The last stop on their Tanzania Safari Tours: Ultimate Northern Circuit Package was Chem Chem Lodge at Lake Manyara. Here, they enjoyed authentic Maasai cultural interactions, walking safaris, and sundowners overlooking the pristine lake.
At last, it was time to say goodbye to Tanzania and begin their journey home. We arranged a day room at Legendary Lodge in Arusha so they could relax and enjoy a delicious lunch before heading to the airport for their journey back home.
