After 2 nights at Lemala Mpingo Ridge in Tarangire, guests are transferred to the Ngorongoro Crater for a memorable visit to this geomorphic wonder, rich with mammalian predators. Next is the famous Serengeti National Park, to a lovely tented camp located perfectly in the Seronera Valley for superb viewing of the Annual Wildebeest Migration. This is a safari-chic camp that keeps things rustic, yet boasts luxurious touches. You will be in charge as this safari has a private local guide and safari vehicle for the duration of the safari! Lastly, it's off to the beach! Guests take a short flight to Zanzibar and drive to Baraza Beach Resort - world renowned for its beachfront and a prestigious level of decadence.
