This seven-night itinerary offers the very best of Tanzanian wilderness! Enjoy the highlights of Northern Tanzania with your family in some our favourite properties. Starting with an overnight stay at Legendary Lodge, the name says it all. Sublime luxury in the city. Enjoy an afternoon relaxing after your flight in the stunning tropical gardens. The following morning your adventure begins! Your private driver and guide will meet you at the lodge and whisk you away to Gibbs Farm, located on the forested slopes of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Children will delight at the activities on offer. After breakfast head off to the Ngorongoro Crater, or experience farm life on this beautiful working farm. Milk cows, roast coffee, bake bread, harvest vegetables (and enjoy them at lunch!), look out for the huge variety of stunning birds on sight or enjoy an afternoon walk to the nearby waterfalls.
After 3 nights at Gibbs, your guide will transfer you to the Four Seasons in the heart of the Serengeti National Park. Children will thrive at the Kijana Kids Club on site, while Mum and Dad unwind in the spa between game drives. Between you and your guide, you will decide whether you enjoy morning and evening game drives, full day game drives or perhaps just one a day, it's completely up to you and your guide. After 3 x nights at the Serengeti you will be transferred to the nearby airstrip for your return flight to Kilimanjaro.
The prices in our itineraries are intended to guide you towards a potential budget for your holiday.
