Itinerary

your day to day adventures

  • Day 1

    Arusha

    You will be picked up from Kilimanjaro Airport by your guide and transferred to Olasiti Lodge for an overnight stay.
    Olasiti Lodge has en-suite rooms with mosquito netting and a private veranda overlooking the gardens. Swimming pool, bar & restaurant is available.

  • Day 2

    Depart to Tarangire National Park

    After breakfast you will depart for Tarangire National Park where you will enjoy an afternoon game drive with a packed lunch. You will return to the Camp as the sun sets, in time for dinner.
    Tarangire National Park gets its name from the river that threads its way through the reserve. The park has one of the highest animal concentrations during the dry season, yet it is one of the least visited of the northern Tanzanian game parks, therefore retaining a real air of undiscovered Africa. Herds of elephant, buffalo, wildebeest, zebras, giraffes and Eland, as well as leopards can be seen throughout the year. For the bird enthusiast, the park offers over 300 species of birds. The vegetation in Tarangire is primarily acacia, mixed woodland, dense elephant grass along the river and numerous baobab trees.

    Accommodation will be at Maramboi Tented Camp; en-suite tents with mosquito netting and private veranda overlooking the rift valley and Manyara Lake. The Tent has an elegant bush bar & restaurant with uninterrupted views of the Manyara shore and the bush beyond. A swimming pool is also available for your pleasure.

  • Day 3

    Lake Manyara National Park

    After breakfast you will transfer to Manyara National Park, where you will enjoy a game drive with a picnic lunch. Well known for its tree-climbing lions, this is a magical and pretty park that winds its way around a mainly forested driving route between the banks of Soda Water Lake and the impressive rise of the Great Rift escarpment. The park covers 390 km² and is sanctuary to over 400 species of bird which include the pink flamingo, pelicans, storks, Ibis and Egyptian Geese. The park also contains huge herds of buffalo and elephant. You will then proceed to your Lodge in Karatu, arriving in time for dinner.

    Accommodation will be at the Ngorongoro Farm House, or similar. Facilities include large en-suite rooms with mosquito netting and private veranda overlooking the farm, including a restaurant, bar and swimming pool.

  • Day 4

    Serengeti National Park

    After breakfast you will proceed to Serengeti National Park with a picnic lunch, where you will spot game en-route to your camp. Enjoy a relaxing evening and dinner at your camp. Arrive back at the camp as the sun sets in time for dinner.

    Accommodation is provided at the Serengeti Kati Kati Tented Camp. This mobile tented camp is located in the Central Serengeti. Each tent has mosquito netting and en-suite facilities. A large and cosy mess-tent is located in the centre of the camp, where all meals are served, and the fire camp is lit each evening for appetizers and snacks before dinner.

  • Day 5

    Serengeti National Park

    Enjoy a full day of game drives in the Serengeti National Park. Serengeti Kati Kati Tented Camp is ideally located in the very centre of the Serengeti, therefore allowing you the opportunity to head off in the best direction to find the game you desire, regardless of the season.
    The Serengeti is renowned for its annual wildebeest migration and large predator population. From February to May, a herd of over a million wildebeests migrate for the western corridor of the park in search of greener pastures. Serengeti’s’ other common animals include lions, leopards, zebras, Thompson gazelles, impala, Grant’s gazelles and buffalos. Most of the park is open grassland broken by isolated granite kopies (hills) and patches of acacias woodlands.
    Accommodation: Serengeti Kati Kati Tented Camp.

  • Day 6

    Ngorongoro Conservation Area

    After breakfast you will depart on a game drive and make your way to the Ngorongoro Conservation area, with a short visit to Olduvai Gorge and the museum which documents the discovery of 1.8 million year old human-like fossils. During your passage through the Conservation area, you will see many Maasai tending their cattle amongst plains game. Stop at the rim of the crater to spot game from a distance, before continuing to your lodge for the evening.

    Accommodation is at the Ngorongoro Farm House, or similar, with large en-suite rooms, mosquito netting and private veranda overlooking the farm. Facilities include restaurant, bar and swimming pool.

  • Day 7

    Ngorongoro Crater

    Today you will experience a full day’s game drive on the floor of the Ngorongoro crater accompanied by a picnic lunch.
    At 2286m above sea level and 20 km wide, the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken Caldera in the world. Surrounded by very steep walls, rising 610m from the crater floor, it covers 260 km2 and is home to over 30,000 animals, almost half of them being zebra and wildebeest. It is also home to the rare black rhino, prides of lion, elephant, cheetah and great herds of buffalo, antelope and wildebeest; Ngorongoro is listed as a World Heritage site.
    Accommodation is at the Ngorongoro Farm House, or similar.

It was absolutely wonderful!

We travelled to three separate locations, staying in four beautiful venues; initially in Zambia at Sindabezi and Tongabezi, then moving onto Mfuwe for a stay at Nkwali Lodge - the safari part of our holiday and finally flying to Malawi and the paradise which is Kaya Mawa on Likoma Island. We can neither praise nor thank Sylvia enough for all the care and attention she gave us. As an example, whilst in Zambia we discovered on New Year’s Eve that we’d left one of our internal flight e-tickets at home. We phoned Sylvia in a panic and by the time we’d reached our next destination, our onward bound ticket was waiting for us at the reception. Not a service which would have been available from a high street tour operator I suspect! Tim had wanted to give me a trip of a lifetime and thanks to Sylvia he was able to do so. We will never forget our time in Africa and can’t wait to return. Thank you again Sylvia – it was absolutely wonderful!

We recommend their bespoke safaris and services

We decided to go on Safari with Africabound Adventures, the service provided was excellent! Sylvia took care of all our holiday planning by listening to our queries and put all our anxieties at ease - addressing and meeting all our expectations. Her passion, close links and expertise of Zambia and the region prompted us to book with Africabound Adventures. This one-to-one personalised service was second to none! We had a superb holiday, visiting the 4 recommended National Parks! The lodges were great - of a consistently high standard and comfortable, particularly Lion Camp in the South Luangwa. The game viewing lived up to expectations! The food was great and the people warm and friendly. Thank you Sylvia, for all your efforts towards arranging and delivering a memorable and enjoyable safari with passion, energy and expertise.

The lodge was great!

We had a great time in Livingstone. The lodge was great - you need to have a love for nature to stay here. The rooms were quite open, overlooking the river therefore you were likely to get a few wasps, bugs etc. fly into your room. However the mosquito netting over the beds avoided one being bitten at night. The manager at the lodge was helpful – however I would recommend that anyone who travels to the Victoria Falls should book their activities directly from the individual activity centres. Other than that had we had great time!

We can’t wait to go again!

This was our first trip to Southern Africa and our first safari and we can't wait to go again. From the outset Sylvia was incredibly helpful understanding exactly what we wanted from the trip and using her vast local knowledge and experience to tailor the holiday perfectly. The choice is overwhelming and having the benefit of someone to guide you through the options and suggest places to stay and visit was such a help. Sylvia also worked closely with a travel agent to match the internal and international flights to the places we wanted to stay and maximise the time available on our trip. Having all the transfers arranged by Sylvia also took a lot of hassle out of moving between locations. The trip was amazing from the hospitality and drives around the reserve at Tanda Tula, getting up close to wonderful wildlife to the incredible welcome at the stunning River Club in Zambia and a walking safari with rhinos. I would totally recommend using Sylvia and Africabound Adventures to organise your holiday.
