Luxury Tenting Serengeti Safari

Day 1: Welcome to Arusha, Tanzania

You'll be met upon arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport and transfered to the storied Four Points by Sheraton, The Arusha Hotel. Tracing its history to 1894, our landmark property is infused with the spirit of classic safaris from a bygone era. Now managed by Sheraton, it offers every modern comfort including free WiFi.

Day 2: Tarangire National Park

After breakfast, we'll take you overland to Tarangire National Park where you'll check in to our luxury safari lodge. Tarangire remains off the main safari circuit, making it a premier destination for discriminating travelers in search of a more intimate and authentic safari experience. You'll arrive in time for lunch and your first afternoon game drive - followed by Sundowner Cocktails and an elegant dinner back at camp. Meals B+L+D

Day 3: On Safari in Tarangire

Thrill to morning and afternoon game drives with our expert safari guides here in one of Tanzania's most visually striking national parks. The Tarangire River is nearby - a magnet for wildlife - and the surrounding scenery encompasses classic African savannah, green hills, woodlands and giant Baobab trees! Tarangire is heralded for abundant wildlife, especially its large herds of elephants and superb birdlife. Lions, leopards, cheetahs and other fierce predators are also regularly spotted. This evening, we'll take you out again for an exciting night safari to search for nocturnal species and to experience the night sounds of the African bush. Meals B+L+D

Day 4: Onward to Ngorongoro Crater

Big game is just one facet of Africa that will inspire you; this morning's visit to spend time with students and staff at a school is another, providing memorable insight into the challenges and rewards of life in Tanzania. Continue to Lemala Ngorongoro; perched on the crater's rim, our luxury safari camp offers your first look at the captivating beauty of the world's largest intact caldera. After lunch, tear yourself away from the view to visit a Maasai village. This evening, a chief's son offers his own personal insight into Maasai culture. Meals B+L+D

Day 5: Wildlife on the Crater floor

There is no place anywhere on the planet that is quite like Ngorongoro Crater #WHS#, and it offers an absolutely unique environment for wildlife viewing. With its vast expanses of open grassland surrounded by steep cliffs, the crater floor is easy for game officials to patrol and the result is abundant wildlife including rare species like black rhino and cheetah. Because our camp enjoys a prime location by the Lemala Crater Access Route, you'll descend quickly this morning for a spectacular game drive before other visitors have even arrived on the crater floor! We've also arranged for Lemala's skilled chefs to provide our guests with a picnic lunch, meaning you'll have more time for wildlife viewing here in this absolutely singular setting. Returning to our luxury camp this afternoon, you'll have time to relax before dinner. Meals B+L+D

Day 6: To Olduvai Gorge and the Central Serengeti

Traveling this morning into the unique terrain of Olduvai Gorge, you'll learn about the passions that drove Louis and Mary Leakey to their remarkable 1.8 million-year-old fossil discoveries. Continue your journey into the vast expanse of the Central Serengeti #WHS#, unequaled for its beauty and the concentration of its wildlife - including Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino and Cape Buffalo. In addition to these Big 5 animals, so named not for their size but because safari hunters considered them to be the most difficult and dangerous to track, the Serengeti is home to numerous other herbivores and the fierce predators which are rarely far behind. Enjoy an afternoon game drive before relaxing with Sundowner cocktails and an elegant dinner at the exclusive Lemala Ewanjan. Meals B+L+D

Day 7: Ballooning Over the Serengeti

Animals, too, have their regular routines and this morning's hot air balloon safari in the sharp clear light of dawn is an amazing time to gaze down as the wildlife of the Serengeti greets another day. Touch back down for a champagne breakfast and a morning game drive. Back at camp, you'll have ample time to relax and share your impressions of Africa with your fellow adventurers. A late afternoon safari drive promises more encounters with the wide variety of primates, birds, horned bovines, wild dogs, ungulates and big cats that roam the Serengeti. Meals B+L+D

Day 8: Tracking Game Across the Plains

Enjoy a morning safari drive as we take you into another remote sector of the Serengeti; depending upon the season and to follow the Great Migration herds as they make their way across the vast plains, you'll travel to either Lemala Ndutu in the Southern Serengeti or Lemala Mara to the North. (Note: When the Migration is in the Central Serengeti, our guests will continue their stay at Lemala Ewanjan.) With animals constantly on the move in their inexorable quest for food and water, your camp's setting affords unmatched game viewing at any time of year. After lunch, enjoy a leisurely afternoon at your Lemala camp. Later you'll gather for Sundowner Cocktails - a great time to engage further with our expert safari guide, thus deepening your appreciation of the Serengeti, its unique eco-systems and wildlife. Meals B+L+D

Day 9: On Safari in the Serengeti

The Maasai call it Siringitu - "the place where the land moves on forever." Indeed, these wide open expanses are awe-inspiring in their natural beauty. But the Serengeti is also renowned for its extraordinary concentration of plains game - including of course the Big Five. So expect today's morning and afternoon safari drives to be heart-pounding and inspiring. And in the company of our engaging, impassioned and knowledgeable safari guides, today's activities offer more chances to learn about Tanzania and its abundant natural wealth. Meals B+L+D

Day 10: Return to Arusha

Transfer to the airstrip for your included flight to Arusha. After lunch at the Arusha Coffee Lodge, set on one of Tanzania's largest coffee plantations, we'll take you to Kilimanjaro Airport for your flight. Meals B+L

Now we’ve turned our expertise to ensuring that we are fully prepared to show you our world in A+R Style… Without a Crowd!

Our Health + Hygiene Protocols

Emphasizing More Personal Space + Extra Care at every step of the on-tour experience, we have enhanced our safety protocols in coordination with our overseas offices and based upon guidelines from the U.S Center for Disease Control, World Health Organization, United States Tour Operators Association and World Travel & Tourism Council.

Choose Your Travel Style… Always Without a Crowd 

With Never More than 16 Guests, our Small Group Journeys promise personal engagement with our expert native guides and easy camaraderie with like-minded travelers. You’ll enjoy authentic dining, evocative hotels and unique cultural experiences not available to larger groups. 

The Privately Guided versions of our Small Group tours and our luxury Private Journeys offer the same advantages – but allow you to choose your traveling companions. Travel any day you wish and delight in the flexible pace of touring with just your traveling party. 

Custom Journeys are tailor made just for you – with expertly guided private sightseeing, unique cultural activities, hotels, and dining experiences tailored to fit your personal interests and style.

Our Enduring Ability to Respond

Since 1947, our global team and partners have always been there to respond with speed and agility to even the most unexpected events. When the Arab Spring of 2011 led to unrest in Cairo, for example, we were the first American tour company to safely evacuate our guests from Egypt. Through earthquakes, tsunamis, labor strikes, and past outbreaks like SARS, our commitment has always been to maintain our travelers’ trust and confidence by doing the right thing. 

And we are fully bonded with leading travel organizations like the United States Tour Operators Association, of which we’re a founding member. This financial stability and our capacity to respond to the unexpected make us uniquely positioned during this current COVID-19 pandemic - to proceed confidently with prudence and deliberation.

About Alexander+Roberts
Having survived World War II in Poland, my friend and mentor Alexander Harris founded General Tours in 1947 with the conviction that travel could build bridges of cross-cultural understanding. Since our first-of-its-kind tours to the Soviet Union in 1955 we’ve remained at the forefront of international travel, helping culturally inquisitive Americans explore 85 far-flung destinations on all seven continents.

Thus, for 74 years, our company … first known as General Tours and now as Alexander+Roberts … has been providing guests with sustainable, authentic and personal ways to enjoy our world with thoughtfulness and a light footprint. We exclusively offer small groups of ‘never more than 16 guests,’ completely private versions of these same tours departing on any day you choose for just your traveling party, or journeys tailor-made to your specifications.

Alexander+Roberts is a privately-held American company based in Keene, New Hampshire with integrity, financial security, and the demonstrated expertise to care for travelers in a sometimes tumultuous world. We’re bonded with major travel organizations like the United States Tour Operators Association of which we were a founding member in the 1970’s.

Our luxury services include comprehensive sightseeing, transfers, all tour flights, tips and unique experiences designed to enhance your experience in the culture you’re exploring. Fine dining is an important aspect of our touring, with congenial meals including wines and beer that reflect authentic regional cuisines. We search out the finest accommodations to enhance your journey… from the most evocative luxury hotels and historic boutique properties to the best safari camps and small ships.

We often hear from travelers that our guides are extraordinary. They hail from the lands you’ll visit and speak English easily and casually. Because they’re lifelong residents, they have the knowledge and passion to engage you comfortably and more deeply with the people, history, traditions and natural wonders of their homelands.

We hope you’ll make your next journey with Alexander+Roberts… and let us show you the world with our signature style and remarkable value.
