Tanzania up close

Legendary Safaris & Outdoor Adventures

Hannu awaits you on the slopes of Kilimanjaro and takes you on an unforgettable Tanzania adventure trip. In a safari vehicle with a pop-up roof and panoramic view, you will go on safari in Tarangire National Park, which is not only known for its herds of elephants, but where you will also experience an unusual night safari.

Via Lake Manyara you reach the famous Ngorongoro Crater. Here you will experience a safari in the crater, explore Karatu with its coffee plantations and Hannu will take you on a hike to the Elephant Caves.

Now you leave all the tourist paths and experience Africa up close on a hike to Empakai Crater and Lake Natron. Hannu and the Masai take you on an unforgettable time in nature and nights under the starry African sky in bivouacs camps.

For the finale, you will cross the eternal Serengeti on safari. Here you will be expected at the exclusive Grumeti Hills, where you will go on a game drive in the first silent open e-safari vehicle. The big highlight here is an exclusive Bush Walk Safari in the morning.

A shuttle flight will take you back to Arusha, where you can end the trip with your fellow travellers or extend it individually on Zanzibar.

Our Tanzania Up Close Journey

Exclusive Safari & Outdoor Adventure | November 2023

Your Itinerary


Your journey begins at Kilimanjaro Airport, where Hannu, your Africa up close guide, welcomes you and assists you with all the important things. Together with your fellow travellers you will go to your lodge near Arusha. Here you will go on a relaxed hike through the rainforest later in the day. Relax for the rest of the day in the lodge's spacious tropical garden, enjoy a snack on the terrace or refresh yourself in the swimming pool with sun terrace and marvel at the view of the mighty Kilimanjaro. You have time to get to know your fellow travellers and Hannu will introduce you to your upcoming Tanzania trip. Your African journey has begun.

Overnight: Arumeru River Lodge
Dinner and breakfast included


Today your safari tour begins. You will be travelling with Hannu in your own safari vehicle with pop-up safari roof throughout the day and head towards Tarangire National Park. Your first game drive starts right after the gate and you keep an eye out for the animals of the African wilderness. You enjoy your lunch as a picnic on safari. In the late afternoon you reach your Maweninga Lodge and experience the magical African sunset over the vast plains.

Overnight: Maweninga Lodge
Dinner and breakfast included (lunch on safari).


Hannu gathers the latest wildlife information early in the morning before heading out on a game drive - because here in Tarangire National Park, apart from the rhino, the big five are to be found. And, of course, the elephant herds can be found along riverbanks and in the mighty baobab forests for which the national park is famous. You will stop for lunch at the Tarangire Safari Lodge. The lodge offers a wonderful view of the bush and with a bit of luck you will see one of the many herds of animals that roam this area. Later in the day you will return to Maweninga Lodge to relax for the late afternoon before an extraordinary night safari after dark.


After breakfast, we continue with Hannu towards Manyara National Park - famous for its hippos and pink flamingos at Lake Manyara, in addition to the classic safari. You will enjoy a picnic lunch under the shade of acacia trees in the middle of the national park. In the afternoon we continue towards the Ngorongoro Crater. The route is very scenic and leads up the Great Rift escarpment and finally ends in Karatu at the foot of the crater.

Overnight: Bashay Rift Lodge
Dinner and breakfast included (lunch on safari)


In the morning Hannu takes you to one of our insider tips: the Elephant Caves. They were created by elephants digging through dense rock with their tusks to absorb the vitamin-rich soil. D he path to the caves leads you through the forested slopes of the crater region and offers you a good view of the valley and the coffee plantations. If possible, Hannu will also take you up the steeper path to the mighty waterfalls. How close you can get to the caves depends on whether the elephants are around. Return to your lodge for lunch before Hannu takes you on an exciting afternoon exploration of one of the region's exquisite coffee plantations.


Today we depart early in the morning for the Ngorongoro Crater. A fantastic game drive awaits you in the crater with a picnic lunch in the 20 km wide caldera, which has its very own ecosystem due to its 600 m high natural wall. The safari and the crater itself are among the absolute highlights of any Tanzania trip. In the afternoon, you will continue your safari and now leave the tourist paths with Hannu, as the journey continues together to the Empakai Crater. Here you will not be expected in a lodge in the late afternoon, but in a mobile camping accommodation specially built for our group in so-called bivouacs.


These Bivouacs Camps are set up in the heart of the bush, often far from permanent accommodation, and are a unique opportunity to enjoy a different experience closer to and in nature. - Our Bivouac Camps are run by the Masai and our team. - Igloo tents for 2 persons each (footprint: 2.75 m x 2.75 m), equipped with separate camp beds, mattress, sheets, blankets, duvet, pillow.... - Cosmetic basket with soap, handkerchiefs, insect repellent, flip-flops (for showering), torch ... - Separate shower tents for men/women (with hot water) and toilets (chemical). We normally provide 1 shower & 1 toilet for 4 tents. - Meals (dinner and breakfast) are served in a tent with tables, safari chairs and lighting with paraffin lamps - Meals are prepared on site by our cooks and their staff and cooked around the campfire. - The Masai are also here at night to keep watch. Enjoy the plateau hike, after which there is nothing more refreshing than standing under Williams Waterfall. You can swim (or paddle) to the waterfall and enjoy the invigorating cold.


Today you will join Hannu and the local Masai on a hike from Empakai Crater to Lake Natron. Along the way, an indescribable natural spectacle of vastness and wilderness awaits you, where you also take your breaks (and enjoy your picnic lunch). In the afternoon you will reach the second bivouac camp in the middle of the vast landscape, as you will not reach Lake Natron until tomorrow.


You leave your bivouac camp in the morning to hike with Hannu and the Masai the last stretch to Lake Natron. Here the exclusive Lake Natron Camp awaits you, a unique eco-camp in one of the most visually dramatic locations in the world. Home to local Masai, abundant wildlife and over 1 million flamingos, the camp is perfectly situated to take in the dramatic views of the Great Rift Valley. This includes the majestic Ol Doinyo Lengai, which is not only the only active carbonatite volcano in the world, but also the catalyst for everything that surrounds it. Here Hannu takes you on afternoon activities around Lake Natron.From the numerous crocodiles and hippos on the banks of the river to the large herds of elephant, antelope and the newly introduced black rhino, cheetah and lion, you will experience the animals of the African wilderness up close.


In the morning you continue in a safari vehicle for the grand safari finale of your trip. Hannu takes you to the famous Serengeti. The road takes you on a full day safari game drive across the Serengeti with unforgettable animal sightings. Your destination is the Grumeti Wildlife Management Area (WMA), which borders the Serengeti National Park to the south and west and the Grumeti Game Reserve to the north. It is arguably one of the most scenic and diverse wildlife areas in Tanzania. The banks of the Grumeti River are only 2 kilometres from the lodge. Wildlife is abundant throughout the year, but especially when the Great Migration passes through the area (May to July and October to December). From the numerous crocodiles and hippos on the banks of the river to the large herds of elephant, antelope and the newly introduced black rhino, cheetah and lion, you will experience the animals of the African wilderness up close.

Overnight: Grumeti Hills Lodge
Dinner, breakfast and lunch included


This morning you will experience a unique safari moment - on the bush walk accompanied by Hannu and the local rangers of the Wildlife Department you will experience the African bush from a completely different perspective. You will walk to the banks of the Grumeti River and have a hearty bush breakfast directly at the Grumeti River. You will then walk or drive back to the lodge. A light lunch is served at the camp before you set off on a silent afternoon game drive in Tanzania's first e-safari vehicles. After dinner, head out again for a night game drive to encounter the nocturnal animals - another great experience and the perfect safari finale to your trip.


It's time to say goodbye to the African bush. In the morning you will go to the airstrip for a shuttle flight to Arusha. From here Hannu will take you to Arumeru Lodge for a farewell lunch. Finally, it's off to Kilimanjaro Airport for your flight back home or on to Zanzibar for an individual beach extension. Please contact us for more information. Many unforgettable memories in your luggage.
