Arusha Area Country Inn

1 Night

At the end of a long tree-lined driveway, halfway between the town of Arusha and Kilimanjaro International Airport, lies the Country Inn on the banks of Tanzania’s Usa River. Filled with flame trees, bougainvillea, hibiscus and banana trees, these are a haven for birdlife- ten hectares of lush tropical gardens. On a clear day it is possible to see both Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro from here.

The old farmhouse at has been restored and converted into a main lounge, with a few separate seating areas. Furnished with antiques and with old framed photos of the property and surrounding area, it has a large fireplace and classic wooden parquet flooring.

The dining room and bar are in a separate thatched building, which is completely open-sided with views over the gardens. The walls are part plaster and part exposed brick, and comfortable sofas create a small seating area around a fireplace. Tucked around the corner from the dining area is a rustic bar, made from the wood of an old dhow, and lined with chunky wooden bar stools.

With 38 rooms dotted around the large property, all of which are en suite and have fans and mosquito nets.

TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK

Safari in the Tarangire!

The Tarangire National Park is located between the meadows of Masai Steppe to the south east and the lakes of the Great Rift Valley to the north and west. Among the rolling area where the park lies, it occupies an area of 2,600 square kilometers. The perennial Tarangire River takes over the northern part of Tarangire. Through the cut ditches, the River flows upwards up to when it leaves the corner of the park, in the North West flowing into Lake Burungi. There are a number of wide swamps which dry into green plains during the dry season in the south.

Thanks to its proximity to Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire National Park is usually assigned only a day visit as part of a larger northern-circuit itinerary. Yet it deserves much more, at least in the dry season (July to October). It's a place where elephants dot the plains like cattle, and where lion roars and zebra barks fill the night.
But here the wildlife tells only half the story. Dominating the park's 2850 sq km, Tarangire's great stands of epic baobabs should be reason enough to visit. There are also sun-blistered termite mounds in abundance, as well as grassy savannah plains and vast swamps. And cleaving the park in two is the Tarangire River, its meandering course and (in some places) steep banks providing a dry-season lure for animals and thus many stirring wildlife encounters for visitors.

Tarangire Park Camp

Big game safari days!

Set in light acacia woodland in the south of the reserve, the Camp is a mobile tented facility which offers an authentic safari experience. Tarangire is a substantial national park which offers a subtle experience, but there are plenty of things to see, notably the wonderful baobab trees and a prodigious elephant during the June to November dry season.

The camp is centered on a pair of open-sided mess tents with lounge and dining areas, leading out to a camp-fire. Guest accommodation is in nine large guest tents with private indoor bathrooms. The tents are well-spaced and roomy; the meals are good; and the manager and staff couldn't make you feel more welcome. Activities focus on daytime safaris (evening safaris are occasional rather than regular), hot-air ballooning (always a real eye-opener), walking safaris and game viewing from each tent's private veranda.

ACTIVITIES
Activities are focused on daytime vehicle safari, with options for balloon safari, walking safaris and night game drives.

NGORONGORO CONSERVATION AREA

Safari in the Ngorongoro!

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area holds the status of a National Park. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area spans 8,300 square kilometers, stretching from the Rift Valley to the Serengeti. About 2.5 million years ago the young Ngorongoro Volcano became filled with molten rock that then solidified into a crust or roof. As the lava chamber emptied, the solid dome collapsed and from this was formed the largest caldera in the world. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) offers one of the richest wildlife viewing experiences on the African continent. Approximately 25 000 large animals live in the natural enclosure formed by the 300km² crater, while the greater conservancy surroundings are home to wildebeest and zebra migratory movement in the wet season. It is undoubtedly the best place in Africa to see the Big Five, and photo opportunities are superb. The mineral-rich floor of the crater is covered in nutritious grasses, attracting great herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo and Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelle that can even be seen from the crater rim, swarming across the landscape in great columns. Populations of predators are extraordinarily high and lion and cheetah roam freely, and elusive leopard can often be spotted darting in and out of the Lerai forest.

It was recently voted one of the new Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the last remaining areas in Tanzania where you can see the endangered Black Rhino. A small population is thriving in this idyllic environment, and it remains one of the few wild places where they continue to breed.

In the conservation area lives 56,000 Masai in harmony with the East African Wildlife. Seeing the Masai let their herds share the grazing areas with thousands of Wildebeests and Zebras is unique phenomenon. The encircled grasslands of the crater floor offer excellent game viewing year-round with 25,000 large mammals, including black rhino, zebra and eland, and Africa’s densest population of lion. The rainforests of the crater walls are home to elephant, buffalo, leopard and cheetah, making for spectacular game viewing.

As well as the spectacular wildlife viewing, the NCA is also renowned for its extraordinary flora and fauna. The region is a botanist’s dream, showcasing a landscape of mountain forests, open grass plains and swampy marshland, each with a splendid variety of vegetation and fern species.

At Ngorongoro Crater, you will see dormant and active volcanoes, archaeological treasures, rivers, forests, lakes, grass and sand dunes. A Ngorongoro safari is one for the books!.

Country Estate Lodge

Ngorongoro crater safari days!

Set on hills in Karatu area mid-way between Lake Manyara National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater, the lodge is located 20 minute drive from the Lodoare gate to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

The Lodge has a total of 22 rooms & suites coming in different categories and widely distributed in the fl ower gardens.

SERNEGETI NATIONAL PARK

Safari in the iconic Serengeti!

Serengeti National Park is located in Northern Tanzania and covers an area of about 14.670 km². The park was founded in 1920 and became a National Park in 1951. The Park is especially famous for its’ immense Wildebeest and Zebra herds, but it is not without reason that it is also known as the best place for observation wildlife in general.

The Serengeti is one of the ten natural travel wonders of the world. The Serengeti migration is as remarkable as it is impressive. This migration takes place twice a year within Kenya and Tanzania and is considered one of the greatest migrations of wildlife on the planet. Its ecosystem is spread across 60,000 square kilometers and is home to the largest diverse concentration of wildlife and famous for infamous for the migration of nearly two million Wildebeests, Zebras, and Antelopes.

The Great Migration is as old as human history. Fossils that were found in the Olduvai canyon, prove that Wildebeests have already been using the planes of the Serengeti for their migration over a million years ago. Already to those times, they were following the rains through the Serengeti.

The yearly cycle begins in the south of the park, where half a million calves are born between January and March. But when the rains end in May the land dries fast and the grazing animals must move on, heading for their dry season refuge in the Masai Mara. The key players in this 1,200-mile odyssey are the wildebeest – 1.5 million of them – accompanied by 200,000 zebras, 350,000 Thompson's' impala and Grant's gazelles. For them, every year is an endless journey, chasing the rains in a race for life.

The action takes place across 150,000 square miles of woodlands, hills and open plains, a wilderness that includes not only the Serengeti national park and Kenya’s Masai Mara game reserve but also the dispersal areas beyond. With the beginning of the short rains in late October the migration makes its way back into the Serengeti, so this a good time to be anywhere in the north of the park. By December, having emerged from the northern woodlands, the herds return past Seronera to mass on their calving grounds again and the circle is complete. But as soon as the rains return the wildebeest head back to the Serengeti, drawn towards their calving grounds in the park’s deep south. Between January and March, when the calves are born, there is nowhere on Earth so vibrantly alive.

When the rains end in May the wildebeest make tracks for the Masai Mara. Some take Route One – north across the Seronera Valley. Others swing through the Western Corridor, but for all of them the journey is beset with danger. For a start there are the famous Serengeti lions – about 3,000 at the last count – to which can be added leopards and cheetahs, hungry hyena clans and monster crocodiles. The river crossing is most likely one on the most dramatic events in the Serengeti!
The exact dates of the actual river crossing is always a mystery but it is usually around the end of July through mid-Augus.t

THE CENTRAL SERENGETI
This area is the vibrant, beating heart of the Serengeti. The Central Serengeti sees high volumes of visitors due to the large amounts of resident wildlife. This gives travelers a high chance of seeing wildlife in the least amount of time. The central Serengeti is the quintessential image of a Serengeti safari; stretches of savanna grassland dotted with acacia and baobab trees. The Seronera River Valley is beautiful and the year-round water supply keeps the area rich in predator and prey. The Central Serengeti is a year-round destination thanks to the resident wildlife and reaches its peak in the dry season from June to November.

WESTERN CORRIDOR & GRUMETI
The Western Corridor is a remote section of the Serengeti which stretches to Lake Victoria. This area is well known for the Grumeti River which is the scene of treacherous river crossings that form part of the Great Migration. Thousands of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle make their way across the crocodile infested waters en route to the lush plains of the Masai Mara in Kenya. The best time to witness these crossings is from late May to mid-July.

NORTHERN SERENGETI
The Northern Serengeti is a quiet area of the Serengeti thanks to its remote and secluded location. Expect far fewer crowds here as it requires long travel times to get to the northern area. The trip is worth it as the Northern Serengeti’s landscapes are varied and beautiful and it is home to exciting wildlife. It is also where travelers can watch the dramatic Mara River crossings. Herds that are thousands strong make the dangerous crossing, attempting to avoid the crocodiles as they do so. The best time to visit with a high chance of seeing the river crossings is from July to September.

SOUTHERN SERENGETI
Serengeti translates loosely to “endless plains” in the local Masai language. It could be argued that the seemingly never ending, short grass plains of the Southern Serengeti were the inspiration for the name. This seasonal safari destination is the most accessible area of the Serengeti and stretches from the Central Serengeti and the Seronera to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The Lake Ndutu region is dotted with alkaline lakes home to flocks of pink flamingos. This area is great for game viewing during the Great Migration from December to March. Most excitingly, the lush plains are the perfect destination and backdrop for the calving season during February when about half a million calves are born over a 2-3-week period and join the ranks of the huge herds.

EASTERN SERENGETI
The Eastern Serengeti is definitely ‘off the beaten path’ and is one of the most starkly beautiful sections of the Serengeti. Made up of grass plains, rivers and rocky outcrops, this area does not see many tourists but is an exciting safari destination. It is home to all three species of big cat (leopard, lion and cheetah) with a noticeably high concentration of cheetah. The wildlife viewing in the eastern Serengeti is at its best during the dry season and reaches its pinnacle in November when the Great Migration passes through.

Serengeti Mobile Camp

Serengeti safari days!

The camp is designed to be lightweight enough to move seasonally, is located in the Ndutu area from December through March. The camp relocates to Western Serengeti from May through June, and again to Northern Serengeti from July through November. Operates off-the-grid and relies on a custom built solar system for its power.

The perfect place to return to after an exhilarating day of game drives, the camp blends an authentic bush experience with delicious food and a comfortable atmosphere. Relax on your tent's verandah and learn to expect the unexpected as you watch life in the Serengeti unfold.

Accommodation includes 5 double en-suite tents,3 family en-suite tents accommodating up to 2 adults and 2 children and a private, shaded verandah overlooking the Serengeti ecosystem. Room fabrics are African designs, and the camp's furniture was commissioned and crafted by artisans in Arusha, Tanzania.

From December through March, the wildebeest migration moves in and out of the Ndutu area. Ndutu is located in Ngorongoro Conservation Area, just south of Serengeti National Park. The camp’s location provides easy access to prime game viewing areas around Lakes Ndutu and Masek. In addition to the almost two million wildebeest and zebra that move through the area each year, Ndutu is home to cheetah, lion, giraffe and hundreds of bird species. During February’s calving season, the wildebeest give birth to 8,000 babies a day.

From May through June, the camp relocates to Western Serengeti. The wildebeest migration is generally in this area during this time, and crossings over the Grumeti River are sometimes seen in this area. Access to Central Serengeti is also possible from this area as the drive is only 2 hours.

From July through November, the camp is located in Northern Serengeti. The camp is close to the Mara River, allowing easy access to several river crossing points in the area. During this time of year, the wildebeest migration is crossing the Mara River back and forth from Tanzania to Kenya. River crossings are common with crocodiles, hippos and large cats scattered throughout the area

ACTIVITIES
Full day game drives along the Mara river and surrounding the large migration!

MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE

Safari in the quintessential Masai Mara!

The world-renowned Masai Mara National Reserve needs little in the way of introduction. Its tawny, wildlife-stuffed savannahs are familiar to anyone who has watched nature documentaries.The reserve is located in the Great Rift Valley in primarily open grassland.

The Maasai Mara (also known as the Masai Mara, and locally simply as The Mara) is a large game reserve in Narok County, Kenya, contiguous with the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. It is named in honor of the Maasai people (the ancestral inhabitants of the area) and their description of the area when looked at from afar: "Mara" means "spotted" in the local Maasai language of Maa, due to the many trees which dot the landscape

When it was originally established in 1961 as a wildlife sanctuary the Mara covered only 520 km2 (200 sq mi) of the current area, including the Mara Triangle. The area was extended to the east in 1961 to cover 1,821 km2 (703 sq mi) and converted to a game reserve. The Greater Mara Ecosystem encompasses areas known as the Maasai Mara National Reserve, the Mara Triangle, and several Maasai Conservancies

It is world-renowned for its exceptional populations of lions, leopards, cheetahs and elephant, and the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, Thomson's gazelle and other antelope, to and from the Serengeti every year known as the Great Migration.There have been some 95 species of mammals, amphibians and reptiles and over 400 birds species recorded on the reserve. Reliable rains and plentiful vegetation underpin this extraordinary ecosystem and the millions of herbivores it supports. The Masai Mara is a unique area with a constant and unrivaled flow of wildlife throughout the year.

From July to October the Mara becomes a backdrop for one of the last great natural wonders of the world, when 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra surge up from the Serengeti plains in their annual search for the seasonal grasses that sustain them. Wildebeest, zebras, impalas, elephants, Masai giraffes and several species of gazelle all call the Mara home. This vast concentration of game accounts for high predator numbers, including cheetahs, leopards and the highest lion densities in the world.

The spectacle as the vast herds cross rivers and sweep through the golden grasses, is punctuated by individual struggles with predators, which are in turn drawn to take their part in this dramatic event. While the migration is spectacular, game viewing at all other times of the year remains almost unrivalled anywhere in Africa.

Masai Mara Tented Camp

Masai Mara safari days!

The camp offers you everything desired in an authentic safari experience. Discreetly ‘tucked away’ in a riverine forest on the banks of the seasonal Olare Orok River. With an excellent location close to Ol Kiombo airstrip, it is situated in the heart of the Masai Mara Game Reserve.

All twelve river front tents have been placed far enough apart to guarantee complete tranquility and privacy. Each tent is furnished with a comfortable four-poster bed with a mosquito net, an en-suite bathroom and safari-style shower, clothing rack and storage chest, writing desk and private veranda.

Additional features are a comfortable lounge and bar tent as well as a private dining tent where a selection of freshly prepared meals, mostly buffet style, are served by our in-house chef, who caters for all dietary requests happily. Our chef will also ensure that picnic meals are readily available for all those who prefer to stay out in the bush all day long. For photographers, a separate photo lounge to charge camera equipment and laptops has been set up. The little boutique shop compliments the set up and one can purchase unique souvenirs to take home.

Unwind around a cozy campfire under the African stars while reminiscing about your day in the wild. The camp is fully solar powered, but a generator, well tucked away to ensure complete silence, and is available to provide power as a back-up system. The camp is not fenced, therefore Masai ‘Moranis’ Warriors will look out for your safety while you are sleeping.
