Upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, our team will warmly welcome you and arrange a smooth transfer to the Arusha Coffee Lodge. Nestled within Tanzania’s largest coffee plantation, this lodge serves as an ideal introduction to your Tanzanian safari adventure. Embodying the charm of traditional plantation houses, the Arusha Coffee Lodge offers a haven of aromatic tranquility, providing a soothing retreat following your long international flight. Explore vibrant gardens, indulge in spa treatments, peruse a collection of boutiques, or unwind by the inviting swimming pool.

After a delightful breakfast, embark on a journey to Oliver’s Camp. Situated in the remote southeastern reaches of Tarangire National Park, Oliver’s Camp overlooks the floodplain of the Minyonyo Pools, which is part of the Tarangire River. This camp offers easy access to a dense concentration of wildlife. At Oliver’s Camp, you’ll join passionate guides for walking safaris, soar over the plains in a hot-air balloon, or examine leopard tracks along dusty roads—truly the quintessential safari experience.

On this conservation and community-themed itinerary, you’ll have the privilege of enjoying a presentation from the Tarangire Lion Research Initiative (TLRI). TLRI collects vital information about the ecology, demography, and human-lion interactions to gain insights into the dynamics and opportunities for lion conservation in the Tarangire-Manyara ecosystem. This area is home to the second-largest remaining lion population in Tanzania’s northern protected areas.

Following breakfast at Oliver’s Camp, a private vehicle transfer will take you to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Your abode for the next few days will be The Highlands, nestled on the slopes of the extinct Olmoti volcano and offering an exclusive selection of high-tech tents.

While the camp provides a remote feel, it is conveniently close to Ngorongoro, where you can embark on extensive game drives. Hike to the summit of Olmoti for breathtaking views or take a half-day excursion to the soda lake in Empakaai Crater, home to thousands of pink flamingos. Additionally, interact with the local community, immerse yourself in Maasai culture, and partake in activities like walking cattle back to the boma at the end of the day.

The final leg of your conservation and community safari in Tanzania involves a road transfer to Namiri Plains Camp in the renowned Serengeti. Namiri Plains, located in a remote eastern corner that was once closed to create a safe haven for cheetah populations to flourish, is undeniably big cat territory. The camp is nestled within a grove of fever trees.

During your stay at Namiri Plains Camp, you’ll have the unique opportunity to spend an evening with a researcher from the Serengeti Cheetah Research Project. This project monitors the demographics of fifty to eighty cheetahs in the area, which is one of the last remaining natural ecosystems where cheetahs exist in viable numbers.

At Namiri Plains Camp, you’ll not only encounter and learn about the cheetahs of the Serengeti but also witness a variety of wildlife, including lions, wildebeest herds, and an abundance of other species, either during game drives or from the comfort of your luxurious room—truly an immersion in untamed Africa.

After savoring a delightful breakfast, you will be charter flown to Kilimanjaro International Airport, marking the end of your remarkable safari adventure. If you wish to extend your journey, our Africa Safari Experts can assist in arranging a few extra nights in Zanzibar, providing a superb tropical island finale to your adventure.
