Day 1
You will be met at Kilimanjaro Airport and transferred 1-hour to Arusha.
 
Check into your hotel in this warm and friendly town in the northern highlands, situated beneath the twin peaks of Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro & formerly an administrative centre in German East Africa.
Day 2
Early this morning your guide will collect you from Arusha for your scenic 4-hour drive to the famous Ngorongoro Crater, travelling in a safari minibus with pop-up roof for game viewing (and picnic lunch included).
 
Stretching across 8,300 sq km, the high altitude Ngorongoro Conservation Area boasts a dramatic variety of volcanic landscapes, wildlife, people and archaeology. Its grasslands, waterfalls and mountain forests are home to an abundance of animals and also to the Masai people, and has been declared a World Heritage site.
 
On arrival enjoy a tour into the basin of the Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest intact caldera forming a spectacular bowl of about 265 square kilometres with sides up to 2,000 feet (600m) deep. Although animals are free to move in and out of this contained environment, the rich volcanic soil, lush forests and spring lakes on the crater floor attract both grazers and predators all year round, with up to 30,000 animals living in the crater - including lions on the open savannah and elephants and monkeys in the forests.
 
You may see flamingos in the lake area, before departing in the afternoon and checking into your lodge.
Day 3
Today we travel 3-hours from Ngorongoro to the great Serengeti National Park.
 
Along the way we stop at Olduvai Gorge, where Louis and Mary Leakey famously discovered the remains of early man, before continuing to Serengeti (meaning "Endless Plains").
 
A World Heritage site, Serengeti National Park hosts the largest and longest wildlife overland migration in the world  - as from October each year nearly 2 million animals travel 500 miles from the northern hills toward the southern plains, crossing the Mara River in pursuit of the rains. In April the animals return to the north, through the west, crossing the Grumeti River in their migration. Check into your lodge in this great wildlife area.
Days 4 To 5
Today is devoted to early morning and late afternoon game viewing in the great Serengeti National Park.
 
This vast conservation area, which is larger than Northern Ireland, lies between Lake Victoria in the west, Lake Eyasi in the south and the Great Rift Valley in the east. The landscape varies from open grass plains in the south, savanna with scatterred acacia trees in the centre, hilly wooded grasslands in the north and woodlands and clay pans in the west - with small rivers, lakes ands swamps scattered throughout.
 
With more than 70 large mammals and over 500 other animal species, including large prides of lions and great herds of wildebeest, zebras and gazelle, outstanding game viewing is guaranteed on a scale only seen in East Africa. Bird watching is also outstanding.
Day 6
Today transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Zanzibar.
 
You will be met at Zanzibar Airport and transferred 1-hour to your beach hotel on this beautiful archipelago. Check in and relax in your wonderful surroundings on this exotic East African spice island.
Days 7 To 10
At leisure to relax on the warm golden Indian Ocean beaches of the Zanzibar Archipelago.
 
You can enjoy a traditional Arab dhow cruise, catamaran sailing, magnificent scuba diving or deep sea fishing. If you wish to explore the island further, day excursions include a Spice Island tour, a snorkelling trip to Prison Island where you can see giant tortoises, a visit to Josani Forest or to Kizimkazi where you can see dolphins.
Day 11
