Culture and coffee in Arusha

Start your Tanzanian adventure by acclimatising in cultural Arusha, gateway to the safari parks of Northern Tanzania and the perfect place to get used to the altitude before Kilimanjaro.

Head into Kilimanjaro National Park, where you’ll have the opportunity to trek to the top of this 5,896m high mountain. Alternatively, explore the wildlife of the region, including elephants, leopards and buffalo, or hike across its diverse landscapes, such as tropical rainforest, glacial ice fields and moorlands.

Wilderness exploration in Karatu

Based in a farmhouse constructed in a colonial style, your trip to the farmlands of Karatu allows you easy access to the famous Ngorongoro Conservation Area where you can take guided treks searching for wildlife or an easier stroll around the farm’s coffee plantation.

Situated in the foothills of Oldeani Volcano, your accommodation offers great views and a swimming pool to relax in at the end of the day.

Witness the great migration in the Serengeti

Travel into the grasslands of the Southern Serengeti where you’ll have the chance to witness the planet’s largest mass migration of land mammals. Depending on the time of year, you’ll have the chance to see more than 2 million, wildebeest, Zebra and gazelles on the move, chased by big cat predators.

Your comfortable semi-permanent camp travels where the migration goes, so you’ll always been in the right place to see the action.

Swim and snorkel on a Zanzibar beach

End your Tanzanian trip by unwinding on a tropical beach in Zanzibar beneath the sun. This is the perfect chance to relax in luxurious surroundings after your previous travel.

However, if you’re still feeling active, a trip to the nearby Mnemba Atoll is a great way of seeing marine life, while there are traditional wooden dhow boats available for fishing trips and secluded areas for both swimming and snorkelling.

The care and attention that went into creating our holiday was exceptional. George dealt with us from start to finish, and created a holiday we will long remember. He was available by email and happy to take even the most mundane of calls from me, double checking the small details of packing, money etc...He came up with the initial itinerary, which we made a couple of changes to; he then advised us of a change that had to be made due to a hotel being closed, but had already found an alternative. He was then very patient with us as we had issues with our flights (cancelled dates needing rearranging), and while we attempted to make contact with a Tanzanian school to visit, which also affected where we would be staying.
The itinerary created was superb, the company he chose to take us on safari (Duma Explorer) excellent. Our guide, Wilson, was second to none, with his knowledge and experience as a guide.
Cannot fault the team or George, and it was lovely to have a chat with him, once we were home, about the holiday (feedback etc..) and share with him our experiences, which he was genuinely interested in.
I would definitely book with Odyssey Travels again!

Drivers were excellent and paid attention to every little detail. The Ndutu camp was fab. The lodges were great. The itinerary & transfers all worked well. Saw lots of animals close up in lush surroundings. Would suggest that Tanzania is a must on anyone’s destination list. Climate in December was perfect and best of all there were no mosquitoes.
