DETAILED ITINERARY

Highlights of Tanzania Safari

Day One, Arusha Arrival – Lake Manyara National Park

.

Upon arrival into Arusha, you will be met by your local guide at the airport and transferred to Arusha Coffee Lodge where you will enjoy a delicious lunch and get briefed for your safari before departing for Lake Manyara. As we make our way to the lake you will be able to spot a variety of wildlife and grassy floodplains that blend into thick acacia woodlands.

.

Upon arrival, check in at Kirurumu Tented Lodge which is built on the Gregorian Escarpment of the Great Rift Valley. Set in this stunning location, it overlooks a spectacular panorama across Lake Manyara to Mount Losimongori and miles of seemingly untouched Africa. Kirurumu is sympathetically and unobtrusively built of local materials, inspired by the nearby traditional Mbulu (Iraqw) tribal dwellings.

The well spaced tents are private and secluded, each raised on a base of natural stone. Bedrooms are comfortable with twin or double beds with duvets. The modern en-suite bathrooms have hot and cold water and flush toilets.
