Arrival and transfer to colonial Arusha

Your guide will meet you on arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport and transfer you to Rivertree Country Inn in Arusha, the safari capital of Tanzania. You will spend your first day acclimatising to the 1,400-metre altitude in this splendid German-built town that was once the colonial administrative centre. Located at the foot of the dormant Mount Meru volcano, Arusha is a bustling city to explore. Or you can escape the crowds and go canoeing on the lake to admire the rich birdlife and begin your wilderness adventure.

Ramble through Karatu's wilderness

The next step of your journey will take you to the nearby Karatu district where you will stay in the old colonial-style Ngorongoro Farmhouse Lodge with its whitewashed walls and thatched roof. Positioned beneath the Oldeani Volcano and surrounded by untamed wilderness, it is the perfect starting point from which you can ramble through 500 acres of farmland to your heart’s content.

Explore the Serengeti's wildlife

Your escort will transfer you from Karatu to the spectacular Serengeti, where you will stay in the semi-permanent Chaka Camp which follows the annual wildebeest migration through the Serengeti and the Masai Mara Game Park. This involves more than a million of the powerful animals teeming through the wilderness and is an unforgettable experience. Since the Serengeti is known to be one of the best places to see lions, you may get to witness these creatures in their natural habitat.

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.
