Wildebeest Calves and Flamingos | 8 Days / 7 Nights

1

DAY 1: LEGENDARY LODGE (ONE NIGHT)

Welcome to Tanzania! Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) you will be warmly welcomed by a Wito Africa private vehicle and driver, who will transfer you to Legendary Lodge for a pre-safari briefing and overnight stay. Dinner will be served upon arrival, and your butler will then show you to your room for the night.

2

DAY 2 & 3: CHEM CHEM LODGE (TWO NIGHTS)

After a delicious breakfast, your Wito Africa private field guide and vehicle will transfer you to Tarangire National Park for a morning game drive and exploration. Tarangire is known for its massive elephant herds, true sense of wilderness and backdrop of baobabs. During your game drives, you will marvel at your first sightings of what is probably one of Africa’s largest population of elephants, along with Cape buffalos, impalas, giraffes, zebras, and wildebeest who— in addition to some big cats and an abundance of mammal species—call the park their home. Lunch will be a classic safari picnic inside the park, while enjoying a glimpse of the great wilds of Northern Tanzania.  In the afternoon, check in to your beautiful and intimate camp, get settled and enjoy sundowners and a magical African sunset by the campfire. Mouthwatering, locally sourced, slow-cooked meals will be served at your camp’s unique dining setting.

The next day, your guide will greet you and take you for another exciting morning game drive in this unique, wildlife-filled corridor of Tarangire/Lake Manyara. Return to the camp for lunch and relaxation before setting out again in the afternoon for further exploration.

DAY 4, 5, 6 & 7: MWIBA LODGE (FOUR NIGHTS)

After a leisurely breakfast, your Wito Africa private guide will transfer you to the Manyara airstrip for your scheduled flight to the Southern Serengeti. You will be greeted at Mwiba airstrip by a private safari guide and vehicle and taken on a gentle game drive on your way to your beautiful luxury lodge. Every year, from January through March, the vast green plains of the Southern Serengeti are filled with over a million wildebeest that come to calve in a synchronized birthing. This natural phenomenon makes your game viewing experience in the Ndutu area very rewarding. Along with thousands upon thousands of migratory herds, the incredible southern part of the Serengeti also provides natural habitats for many resident wildlife and African big cats, including lions, cheetahs and leopards, to mention just a few. Depart from your luxury lodge with a picnic lunch to explore further afield. Enjoy unlimited daily game drives in the Serengeti for the next four days and nights, surrounded by nature and abundant wildlife.

OPTIONAL – Why not take an unforgettable flight over the Serengeti in a hot air balloon!

DAY 8: KILIMANJARO & BEYOND (DAY ROOM AT LEGENDARY LODGE)

You will say goodbye to the Serengeti with hearts and minds full of incredible memories, and board your scheduled flight to Arusha Airport. Since your flight home will probably not depart until later in the evening, we have arranged a day room for you at the unparalleled Legendary Lodge. Here, you can wash up, rest and relax by the pool, take a tour of the coffee estate, and visit the remarkable workshop and gift store, Shanga. Shanga is an inspiring local initiative that strives to support the lives of Tanzanians with disabilities. We love connecting our clients to Shanga and encourage them to support their fair trade, handmade goods (made from recycled materials) as a way for us to highlight their amazing work.  

In the evening, your driver will greet you and transfer you to Kilimanjaro International Airport for your scheduled flight home.
