D1: BANANA ECO FARM

Start the trip with the warmest welcome at Tanzania's Banana Eco Farm! This is a cosy, creative paradise filled with paintings, quirky artefacts and all-around great vibes.

There's lots to do at this sprawling 4.5-acre farm and homestay. You can learn to make coffee the local way, hike down to the waterfall, try organic local fruit, and spot wild monkeys along the river. No matter what you choose to do, be sure to end the day with a delicious farm-to-table meal at the cookhouse.

D2 : NGORONGORO CRATER

Once a volcano, Ngorongoro Crater is now the largest intact caldera in the world. It's a true sanctuary for many endangered species including black rhinos (just ~6,000 left in the wild), African golden cats, and African wild dogs.Unlike other regions, it's easier to spot wildlife in Ngorongoro Crater as the landscape is almost entirely flat.You'll see thousands of lesser flamingos and a high density of wildlife including zebra, gazelle, and hippos — all packed into the three-million-year-old Ngorongoro basin.

D3: NORTH SERENGETI

The massive plains of the Serengeti are home to a huge abundance of wildlife — predators, prey, and scavengers — raising their young and fighting to survive in nature's epic circle of life. Visiting during September to November gives you the best chance to witness the Great Migration, with thousands of wildebeest (and some zebra) crossing the perilous Mara River, where hungry crocodiles and angry hippos await.

Even without the Migration, North Serengeti is an amazing place to see wildlife — with leopards and all the Big Five, giraffes, hyenas, and more.

D4, D5: CENTRAL SERENGETI

Take in the stunning landscape with endless grassy plains and ancient granite cliffs. Lots of drama happens in Central Serengeti — it's known as the best place to spot predators in action (and maybe even see a hunt), with its large numbers of big cats prowling the savannah.You might spot one of Serengeti's 300 lion prides, or even see cheetah brothers scanning the terrain for prey!

Tribes of Tanzania.jpg

D6: TRIBES OF TANZANIA

The Hadza are one of the last hunter-gatherer tribes in Africa, and they're an extremely warm and cheerful bunch. You'll join the Hadza on their everyday hunt in the savannah, where they chase down meerkats, wild birds, and other game with homemade spears and arrows.

Also in Yaeda Valley, you'll visit the Datoga — a semi-nomadic tribe who specialise in blacksmithing.
You'll learn about their warrior traditions and watch the talented Datoga welders create traditional jewellery and hunting gear.

D7: TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK

The landscape at Tarangire National Park is unlike any other, with majestic Baobab trees (also known as the Tree of Life), that are hundreds of years old. Plus, one of the largest populations of elephants in the world — with over 2,500 African elephants!You're likely to spot a rich diversity of wildlife during your visit, as animals travel to the Tarangire River during the dry season. Keep a close eye out for Tarangire's 'tree-climbing lions'!

D8: ARUSHA

Explore Arusha, the bustling city nestled at the foothills of Mount Meru. 
It's a great place to immerse in Swahili culture, with Tanzanian cafes, handmade art and curio shops, and more. Be sure to visit the Maasai Market, where local artisans showcase traditional crafts, colorful fabrics, and intricate beadwork. A day in Arusha is also a great chance to try truly local Tanzanian cuisine, like nyama choma (grilled meat) and ugali (a staple food made from maize flour).

D9: MATERUNI VILLAGE AND WATERFALLS

Visit this highland village filled with warm and friendly Chagga locals. Have a homecooked local feast, learn to make coffee the traditional way in a fun ritual filled with song and dance! After fueling up, you'll take a scenic trek to the towering Materuni Waterfalls. On a clear day, you'll also get to see the roof of Africa — the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro— all along your leisurely highland hike.

D10: CHEMKA HOT SPRINGS (KIKULETWA)

After many action-packed days on safari, unwind in a relaxing spa, Tanzania-style! The Chemka Hot Springs is an all-natural crystal-clear water paradise unlike anything you'll find in the city.

P.S. Don't expect onsen-level hot springs as the Chemka Hot Springs are only slightly warm. But this gets extremely refreshing when the sun comes out through the day.


Dive into the clear waters for some out-of-this-world photos. For more adventure, there are swings and jumping off-points. Just watch and learn from some of the locals — they love to show off their skills at the Chemka Hot Springs!

Time to say narudi (see you again), Tanzania! Enjoy breakfast and some last-minute shopping before your flight home.
