If you want to see the best of northern Tanzania and stay in the finest accommodation in prime locations, accompanied by the best guides, then this is the trip for you! The best does come at a premium, and there is a temptation to suggest that this is an expensive itinerary; however, given the quality of the experience, the trip’s high cost is entirely justified and great value. The five-star accommodation has service and standards to match its rating, yet it is the safari guides who elevate your experience to the next level. Nomad Tanzania, who own and operate all of the safari accommodation and supply the guides, have a well-deserved reputation for the highest of standards in both guide selection and training.

This itinerary will take you to Tarangire, which is a superb, year-round safari destination for elephants and other wildlife, followed by the Ngorongoro Crater which is a jaw-dropping wonder for scenery and is surrounded by wildlife such as the endangered black rhino. The safari culminates in the north of the Serengeti, an area known for its density of predators and stunning beauty. As access to the north of the Serengeti requires a light aircraft flight, this area tends to be less frequently visited by tourists than the south and central areas of the park. Following your safari adventure, you will be flown to the palm fringed beaches of Zanzibar and to an award-winning hotel that has been named one of the top 25 luxury hotels in the world. This itinerary is by no means the most expensive or cheapest out there but, in our opinion, it is world-class.
