Following this optional tour you will once again return to enjoy a light lunch at the Lodge, after which our SkySafari guests will be chauffeured the short one-mile journey to the Arusha airstrip where the Executive SkySafari Cessna Grand Caravan awaits.

Arusha to Tarangire – The Safari Takes to the Air

Fast-tracked into the airport, you will be greeted by your SkySafari Pilot who will invite you aboard our Executive SkySafari Cessna Grand Caravan and take you on a short but enjoyable 20-minute flight to the Tarangire National Park. From the air you will be treated to an exceptional and rare view of the shapes and colours of the landscape below and, as the bush draws near, begin to spy the wealth of wildlife that awaits in Tarangire.

Tarangire – The Ancient Land of the Elephant

On landing at Tarangire airstrip, our SkySafari Guests are met by the Tarangire Treetops Guide and a ‘special’ SkySafari welcome in the form of a finger buffet, soft drinks and chilled sparkling wine is provided to all. The transfer to Tarangire Treetops includes a fascinating game-drive through the famed Tarangire National Park, home to the largest concentration of elephants in Tanzania. Tarangire is a dramatically beautiful and diverse eco system, boasting one of the largest concentrations of elephant in East Africa. These mobs of elephant are easily encountered, wet or dry. The swamps, tinged green year round, are the focus for 550 bird varieties, the most breeding species in one habitat anywhere in the world.

A Traditional Maasai Boma Dinner

Dinner on the first evening is taken within a traditional Maasai boma. This evening will introduce our guests not only to traditional African fare prepared by the Executive Chef and his team, but also to the sights and sounds of the Maasai who visit the Boma to entertain all the guests with songs and dances that have been passed down from generation to generation.

Walking Safari

For the more adventurous of our SkySafari guests, the option of an early morning Walking Safari before breakfast is a temptation too hard to refuse. For others the desire to laze in bed whilst looking out across the treetops of Tarangire is also too difficult to give up. However after a relaxing and hearty breakfast, all our SkySafari guests are invited to enjoy a game drive in Tarangire followed by a Bush Luncheon at a specialy selected site.

Dining in the Bush

The site for this Bush Luncheon is carefully located to optimize the experience of visiting this beautiful and stunning landscape. It is here where the Tarangire Executive Chef once again demonstrates the hospitality for which the Elewana Collection is renowned. During the day it is also possible to visit the Maasai Village and sample the genuine warmth of the local indigenous people. With some members of the village working within the Treetops Lodge, any visit from our SkySafari guests is indeed a heartwarming and welcoming experience.

Spectacular Sunset Cocktails in The Bush

On arrival back to the Tarangire Treetops Lodge and after a short rest, our SkySafari guests are invited to sample the true drama and beauty of an African sunset. After a short 25-minute drive, our vehicles climb the few hundred feet up a hilly outcrop of granite, quartz and mica, known as Sunset Hill. Here our SkySafari guests will enjoy a Sundowner Cocktail whilst the sunsets over the distant but shimmering Lake Manyara. And as the dying sun creates a rich palette of reds and oranges, thousands of stars begin their nightly efforts to illuminate the darkening landscape.

The Sights and Sounds of a Night Game Drive

As night draws in, our SkySafari guests then begin a Night Game Drive as part of their journey back to the distant glowing lights of Tarangire Treetops.

Following a short but comfortable transfer to The Manor at Ngorongoro, high tea awaits at this beautiful and magnificent homestyle lodge set in a lush and verdant Arabica coffee plantation.

Full Day in The Crater

After an early but delicious breakfast, our SkySafari guests will be invited to travel to what undoubtedly is one of the ‘Natural Wonders of the World’ – The Ngorongoro Crater. Filmed and documented by naturalists from the four corners of the earth, The Ngorongoro Crater, the largest ‘dry’ caldera of its kind, is home to almost all the animals that you would wish to see in East Africa. Large herds of zebra and wildebeest graze while sleeping lions laze in the sun. At dawn, the endangered black rhino returns to the thick cover of the crater forests after grazing on dew-laden grass in the morning mist. Just outside the crater’s ridge, tall Maasai tribesmen herd their cattle and goats over green pastures through the highland slopes, living alongside the wildlife as they have for centuries.

A Luncheon to Remember

Luncheon is served in the Crater under an awning of one of our SkySafari vehicles in a campaign-style luncheon. This spectacular setting at times belies belief. Whilst the resident hippos enjoy their daily bathe, and herds of zebra and wilderbeest keep a wary eye out for any number of predators, our Skysafari guests can sit and watch this ‘live’ show whilst enjoying the very best picnic luncheon that The Manor can offer.

Your Choice of Manor Dining

Following this exciting full day in the Ngorongoro Crater, our SkySafari guests are then taken the one-hour transfer back to The Manor where preparations will already be underway for the evening meal. Private dining options are available at The Manor on request. These include dining under the stars, room service or a private dining room ideal for couples and honeymooners.

Morning at The Manor – A Haven of Tranquility

On the morning of day six our SkySafari guests are given the option of either visiting Lake Manyara National Park, located at the steppe of the Rift Valley, or to stay at The Manor to explore the estate and choose from a host of activities. These activities include horse riding, mountain biking, massage treatments, or simply walking around the beautiful and sensuous gardens whilst contemplating the journey to come. After lunch at The Manor, our SkySafari guests will be driven to the Manyara airstrip to meet up with the SkySafari Cessna Caravan once more for the onward 45-minute flight to the world-renowned National Park of the Serengeti.

From Ngorongoro to The Serengeti – Flying Over The Vast Plains

Following this 45-minute scenic flight, a Serengeti Migration Camp Guide will meet and greet all our SkySafari guests in the now customary fashion. Once again a ‘special’ welcome, including finger buffet, soft drinks and sparkling wine will be offered, after which a transfer to Serengeti Migration Camp will begin, arriving in time for Sundowners on an elevated wooden terrace overlooking the distant Ndasiata Hills, all by the warming glow of an open fire. Spending two nights at Serengeti Migration Camp, our SkySafari guests will not only enjoy the luxuriant tented accommodation but also the drama and beauty of the Serengeti’s abundant wildlife – and for most of the year the amazing sight of the annual migration.

The Serengeti – Magnificence Beyond Belief

A million wildebeest… each one driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling its instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life: A frenzied three-week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40km (25 mile) long columns plunge through crocodile-infested waters on the annual exodus north; replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 km (600 mile) pilgrimage begins again.

Day 7.The Serengeti – Mingling With The Migration

Day in Brief

  • »» Early Morning Walking Safari
  • »» Breakfast at Serengeti Migration Camp
  • »» Game Drives – Mingling with The Migration
  • »» Dining Under The Stars
  • »» Overnight at Serengeti Migration Camp

Waking and Walking at the Camp

Waking up to the sounds of the hippos barking and splashing in the Grumeti River just 100 metres from the Camp, our SkySafari guests are once again offered the opportunity of an early morning walking safari with one of our highly experienced guides. For those a little less intrepid, breakfast is served at the Main Camp Tent on one of the three terrace balconies over looking the Grumeti and the hills beyond.

Mingling with the Migration

Post breakfast game drives are then the order of the day and these are either full-day game drives with picnic lunches provided, or half-day game drives with lunch provided back at the Serengeti Migration Camp. The length of the drive depends on the season and the proximity to the Camp of the annual migratory animals. However the beauty of Serengeti Migration Camp often draws SkySafari guests to spend at least one afternoon within the Camp, either relaxing on their 360 degree verandah that embraces each private tent, or simply sitting atop one of the three terraces watching the wildlife walk past and often through the Camp.

Dining Under Canvas or Under The Stars

Dining at Serengeti Migration Camp can either be in the Main Camp Restaurant or our SkySafari guests can choose to dine in more private and intimate surroundings under the stars or under canvas back in the privacy of their own tent. Each meal is prepared by the Executive Head Chef and to our guests’ taste. As the night sets in and the nocturnal animals begin their nightly activities, the Camp yet again becomes alive with sounds if not the sights of Serengeti.

Serengeti to Arusha

After a leisurely lunch, our SkySafari guests once again take to the road for a game drive en-route to the Lobo airstrip for the onward flight to Arusha. During this 50-minute flight, you will be able to see, from the air, the ever-changing landscape of the bush and the mountainous topography that reminds all who see it of Tanzania’s violent geological past. On arrival at Arusha airstrip, our SkySafari guests will be transferred to Arusha Coffee Lodge and will either be offered a day room to relax and freshen up before leaving for their onward flight or to be checked into a Plantation Suite for one final night* of relaxation before flying out from Kilimanjaro the next day.
