Day 1
Fly from UK to Kilimanjaro

After much anticipation, the time has finally come to embark on the journey of a lifetime across the diverse landscapes of Tanzania. Once you've arrived at the airport, you can catch a short flight to Schipol, Amsterdam where you will then transfer flights and fly directly to Kilimanjaro. 

Day 1-2
1-night stay at Arusha Coffee Lodge by Elewana

After your flight, you'll be warmly welcomed into your accommodation for the night at Arusha Coffee Lodge by Elewana, a luxury hotel nestled within coffee trees in the rolling foothills of Mount Meru. During your stay, you can enjoy soaking up the luscious, green surroundings, indulge in some exquisite dining options and explore Traders Walk, an African experience centre at the lodge.

Day 2
Fly from Kilimanjaro to Katavi National Park

After a revitalising night at Arusha Coffee Lodge by Elewana, it's time to continue your journey West towards Katavi National Park. Once you've checked out of the lodge, you'll be transported via private car to the local airstrip where you'll fly to your next location on a light aircraft. Upon arrival, you'll be met by your chauffeur who will escort you to your next accommodation. 

Day 2-6
4-nights stay at Chada Katavi

Located in the heart of the Katavi National Park, the sensational Chada Katavi is a luxury lodge that offers the 'best seat in the house' to soak in the breathtaking scenery of the park. Designed to optimise access to the park, the lodge's open-air accommodation allows guests to truly connect with their surroundings, and if they're lucky, be paid a visit by a curious creature.

Day 3
Game Drive & Night Safari

Venture out on to the plains and experience a slice of the wildlife in Katavi, Tanzania's third-largest national park and one of its most pristine. Home to dozens of wildlife species, Katavi has evaded drastic human impact over the years and thus boasts a variety of flourishing wildlife populations such as elephants, crocodile and hippopotamus, in addition to smaller populations of lions, giraffes, buffaloes and zebras, with occasional sightings of leopards and hyenas. 

During your stay, you'll embark on a series of guided activities including a game drive and night drive where you can experience tracking and spotting wildlife from day to night. Other activities include daily bushwalks, picnics in the bush and fly camping so guests can experience feeling at one with the wilderness. 

Day 6
Fly from Katavi National Park to Lake Tanganyiku

After an incredible adventure in Katavi, the next chapter of your journey begins. Once you've checked out at Chada Katavi, you'll be transported back to the local airstrip where you will depart to the glistening shores of Lake Tanganyika and the magnificent forests of Mahale.

Day 6-9
3-nights stay at Greystoke Mahale

Residing on the white-sand beach of Lake Tanganyika, Greystoke Mahale is a breathtaking lakeside lodge camp situated on the foothills of the majestic Mahale Mountains. Offering quaint, lake-facing accommodation, Greystoke Mahale offers guests an intimate and immersive experience of the region.

Day 7-8
Chimpanzee Tracking

During your stay at Greystoke Mahale Camp, you will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to venture into the Mahale Mountain National Park to track down wild groups of chimpanzees and observe them in their natural habitat. Home to approximately 1,000 chimpanzees, an expert guide will accompany you on your trek offering insight into their fascinating behaviours. While the chimpanzees may be the main attraction, there's still a lot to see in the national park including eight other species of primate, such as the red-tail monkey, a host of endemic insects, a plethora of medicinal plants and the elegant turaco. 

When you're not trekking the wilderness, you can enjoy traversing Lake Tanganyika, the second-oldest and second-largest freshwater lake in the world. With a number of activities on offer such as kayaking and swimming, we're sure you'll love exploring the waters of this magnificent lake.

Day 9
Fly from Mahale Airstrip to UK

After an otherworldly adventure in Tanzania, the time has come to head back home. You'll be transported from the camp via boat across Lake Tanganyika to reach Mahale airstrip where you will depart to Kilimanjaro International Airport, and finally, catch your flight back home.
