Adventure waits in the form of bush walks and night game drives amongst ancient baobab trees and spectacular herds of buffalo and elephant. On your third day, take a hike out to a remote part of the bush, where your very own private tent site awaits. Spend the night under the African night sky.

Lake Manyara National Park is just an easy 30 minute drive to see more wildlife, and Gibb’ s Farm offers it’ s own host of activities such as farm walks, cultural visits and a mountain bike. day trip to Rotia
DAY 6-8: SAFARI IN THE SERENGETI
Journey on to Ubuntu Camp – a luxury mobile camp following the movements of the Migration. From July to October, Ubuntu Camp is located in the Northern Serengeti. Here you wait in rapt attention; poised with camera waiting for the moment the herd decides it is time to cross the crocodile infested waters of the Mara River. From December to February, Ubuntu Camp is located inside the Ngorongoro Conservation Area overlooking the open plains. During these months, the herds congregate on the lush grass to give birth to the next generation of wildebeest which quickly turns into a feeding frenzy of easy pickings for the resident cats and scavengers.
DAY 9-12: FUN IN THE SUN
For the final leg of your itinerary you can relax, unwind, and let the “hardships” of safari wash away as you lounge in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and rejuvenate in the oasis that is Matemwe. Fill your last few days with reef walks, dhow trips, snorkelling diving and cultural tours. Head off on a spice tour to learn why Zanzibar was such a sought after trade port. On your last day be sure to spoil yourself with one or two spa treatments before heading back to reality.
