Tanzania's Northern Circuit takes you on an evocative 9-day safari journey with a classic route to blend the landscapes and habitats to reveal an inspiring ode to nature's ancient realm. This luxury itinerary reveals all, with four days in three diverse parks, before four days of thrilling encounters in the Serengeti. On a private safari, follow Tanzania's iconic route and culminate with the vivid drama of the great wildebeest migration.
Karatu – Tranquility After the Flight
Tanzania's safari landscape cascades across the north of the country as the plains extend beneath the volcanic cones of the Kilimanjaro, Meru, and Ngorongoro. Touch down at Kilimanjaro International, and you can immediately sense the extravagance of nature as these towering mountains guide you westward towards the small town of Karatu. It's a three-hour journey as you cross grass plains filled with Maasai herdsmen and the scent of the wild. Your lodge will provide a tranquil complement to the journey as the verandah gazes out on fertile slopes that are sporadically dotted with wildlife. Reedbuck wander past, vervet monkeys impishly approach, and zebra randomly marches across the slopes. While the safari adventure starts tomorrow, you're immediately introduced to just how untouched Tanzania's landscapes can be.
