Western Tanzania provides an indelible mix for the luxury traveler. It's remote and off the beaten track, with beautiful landscapes defined by wild allure and outstanding lodges providing an opulent base for the wilderness adventure. Then unique experiences provide the out of the ordinary: tracking wild chimpanzees, horseback safari in the Serengeti, luxury mobile camping. Mixing the Serengeti and the western reserves, these two weeks offer an exclusive immersion in Africa.
Arusha – Arrive to Tanzania
Your flight into Tanzania lands in the early evening, so this night is spent at a luxury lodge close to the airport. You'll be greeted at the airport by a local guide and transferred to your lodge in Arusha, where the location beneath the mountains provides a dreamy space to relax. Dinner at the lodge is included, and you'll quickly encounter the smiles and friendliness of the Tanzanians.
