DAY 1 Arusha - Rivertrees
Arrive at Kilimanjaro Airport where you are met by our representative who will assist in your transfer to Monorava.
 
River trees sits below Mount Meru, in natural gardens along the Usa River. Nature and harmony are the focal point at River trees with acres of lush and mature gardens where guests can relax or walk undisturbed under the shady trees. The old farm house, restaurant and pub are cozily furnished and complement the surroundings. An inviting fireplace wards off the evening chill and country-style kitchens round off the picture of a peaceful African home. River trees accommodates twenty-four guests, guaranteeing privacy, personal attention and service. It is the ideal place for visitors looking for peace and quiet away from the hustle of a city hotel.
 
DAY 3 Ngorongoro Conservation Area - Ngorongoro Crater Lodge
The Ngorongoro Crater is an unbroken caldera of an extinct volcano and is located in the 3,200-square mile Ngorongoro Conservation Area in northern Tanzania. Ngorongoro was an active volcano some eight million years ago; the cone collapsed and slid back into the volcano forming the crater. The completely intact rim of the crater, rising 2000 feet above the floor, is twelve miles across making it the world's second-largest crater.
 
In some opinions, the floor or this extinct volcano offers the finest game viewing in Africa. The combination of abundant game (including rare species such as black rhino) and awesome scenery will impress even the seasoned safari passenger. The rich pastures and permanent water of the crater floor supports a resident population of some 20,000 - 25,000 large animals. They are by no means confined by the crater walls and can freely leave. Since most of the crater floor consists of grassland, grazing animals predominate: gnu, zebra, gazelle, buffalo, eland, Coke's hartebeest and warthogs. The swamps and forest provide additional resources for hippo, rhino, elephant, waterbuck, reedbuck and bushbuck, baboons and vervet monkeys. The steep inner slopes provide a habitat for small dik-dik and the rarely seen mountain reedbuck, while many other animals pass up and down the slopes as they enter and leave the Crater.

Ngorongoro Crater Lodge consists of three adjacent, stylish camps with thirty Maasai-inspired suites perched on stilts on the rim of the crater. From the outside, this unobtrusive lodge resembles a typical Maasai village, and was described by the
travel magazine Discover Africa as 'Versailles meets Maasai in the game lodge at the edge of the world'. Set in classic crescents, each stone and thatch suite has spectacular views of the crater from floor to ceiling glass windows in the bathroom, lounge, and bedroom, and yet, the lodge is almost invisible from the crater floor.(B,L,D)
 
DAY 4 Ngorongoro Conservation Area - Ngorongoro Crater Lodge
Enjoy the activities available throughout the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. (B,L,D)
 
DAY 5 Lake Manyara National Park - Lake Manyara Tree Lodge
Located 1-hour drive from Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara National Park consists of acacia woodland which is dominated by spectacular umbrella thorn, tamarind tree, desert date, cordia and salvadora shrubs - an excellent habitat for large mammals. Floodplains fringing the lake expand and retract according to the water levels and are typically fringed by stands of fever trees and ivory palms.
 
Lake Manyara is renowned for its tree-climbing lions, which may be seen resting in favored spots. After a decade of heavy poaching, elephant numbers have recovered and the great pachyderms are regularly encountered  the park was the site of Iain Douglas-Hamilton's pioneering work on elephant societies. Olive baboon troops may number up to 200 individuals. Giraffe are abundant with many old males that are very dark in color. Small numbers of Heck's wildebeest favor the lakeshore. Buffalo bulls with enormous horns wallow in the lake shallows, and hippos are regularly seen. Klipspringers hold territories around boulders at the base of the Rift Valley wall.
 
Lake Manyara Tree Lodge features tree house suites with large windows, inviting the lush forest inside. The elegant rooms are fitted with contemporary furnishings in neutral colors and textures. Bedrooms have overhead fans, mosquito nets and earthy, understated features. Overlooking a forest boma, guest areas are soaring spaces housing Dodoma artworks and tactile fabrics. An interactive kitchen allows guests to observe the preparation of delicious Pan-African cuisine, which may be enjoyed in the theatrical boma, on dining decks or on your private viewing deck with spectacular forest views. Breakfasts and picnics are often served on the lakeshore.(B,L,D)

DAY 6 Ruaha National Park - Mwagusi Safari Camp
Transfer to the Lake Manyara airstrip and fly to Ruaha. Ruaha is one of the largest and wildest national parks in the world, and one of the finest in Africa.
 
Mwagusi Safari Camp is a well-appointed tented camp, run by owner Chris Fox, who was born in the region. With over 30 years experience in Ruaha, Chris and his enthusiastic team are welcoming hosts. The camp, built in traditional African style, is nestled into the banks of a sand river and situated in the middle of the park where the wildlife is most concentrated.
 
From the moment you touch down at the local airstrip, the adventure begins. Experience a wide variety of wildlife in this unique overlap of Eastern and Southern African ecosystems. Within forty-five minutes drive from camp, more than eighty
species of animal and over 480 species of bird can be seen. Absorb and marvel at the sights, sounds, and smells of the African bush. Experience game viewing from open four-wheel drive vehicles, on foot accompanied by an armed guide or from the seclusion of the veranda. (B,L,D)

DAY 9 Selous National Park - Sand Rivers
A safari in the Selous, an area twice the size of Belgium, is guaranteed to give one a taste of the totally wild, unspoiled African bush. Selous has literally thousands of elephants and a sizable population of wild dogs. These amazing dogs live in a highly cooperative pack, which makes them formidable hunters. Their need to roam vast areas is satisfied in the boundless woodlands and undulating savannah of the Selous.
 
Wildlife
The lifeblood of the Selous is the Rufiji River with tributaries that form a network of lakes, lagoons and channels. These water sources attract an array of antelope and predators such as lions and leopards, and contain plenty of crocodiles and hippos. Black and white colobus monkeys live in the riverine forests and horned sable and kudu antelope graze in the shrubs. A boat on the Rufiji River is the perfect vehicle from which to watch game, especially during the dry season months of June to October when many animals are drawn to the water.
 
Sand Rivers, the most exclusive lodge in the Selous, is comprised of six secluded cottages all with en suite bathrooms and stunning views of the Rufiji River. There is a swimming pool, set in the shade of a Baobab tree on the banks of the river, in
which to cool off in the heat of the day. With a team of experienced and friendly staff ready to welcome guests, Sand Rivers prides itself on the high standard of service and cuisine. (B,L,D)
