Sky Safari Tanzania Classic
Welcome to Our 8 Days Safari Itinerary
Day 1: Arusha
On arrival to Kilimanjaro International Airport, our dedicated SkySafari Guest Representative welcomes our SkySafari guests to Tanzania. Each guest is chauffeured to Arusha Coffee Lodge, one hour’s drive from Kilimanjaro itself. Just an hour’s drive from Kilimanjaro International Airport, and nestled in the foothills of Mount Meru, Arusha Coffee Lodge sits within one of Tanzania’s largest working coffee plantations. On the edge of Arusha and yet seemingly a million miles from the bustle of the city, the rooms are sprinkled amid the lush and fertile gardens of this charming and picturesque estate. It’s one of the most luxurious properties in Arusha, and the perfect pre and post safari lodge. SkySafari guests’ stay at Arusha Coffee Lodge is on an all-inclusive food and drink package, with a choice of dining options at the property. A spa offers a range of treatments if you’re looking for some R&R, or, for those wishing to explore the town itself, there are half and full day tour options available.
Day 2 and Day 3: Elewana Tarangire Treetops | Tarangire National Park
Your safari adventure starts from the minute you touch down in this incredible 2,850 Km2 National Park. Tarangire is home to over 3,000 elephants, the largest concentration in Tanzania, and one of the largest in East Africa. The landscape is varied and dramatically beautiful, delivering a diverse and fascinating Eco system, as well as exceptional wildlife viewing all year round. During the dry season the Tarangire River becomes a sole source of water for wildlife, and the area becomes host to a migration of animals, including wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, and kudu – seeking out the lush green pastures. It’s also a birders paradise, with the swamps populated with over 550 bird varieties, the most breeding species in one habitat anywhere in the world. Tarangire Treetops is a fabulously unique property located in a private 312 Km2 conservancy border in the national park. The communal lounge and bar area overlook a watering hole (with 24 hour webcam for those keen to check out the local wildlife prior to arrival) whilst the elevated position of the treehouse suites, sitting amongst the branches of the baobab and Murula trees, provide incredible views of the conservancy, and local inhabitants.
Whatever your tipple, watching the sunset on the horizon from Sunset Hill will almost certainly be a highlight of your stay.
Day 4 and Day 5: Elewana The Manor At Ngorongoro | Ngorongoro Crater
A UNESCO World Heritage Site and often referred to as the eighth wonder of the world, The Ngorongoro crater is the largest intact caldera on earth. The rim of the crater is made up of lush, mountain forest and coffee plantations: in contrast, the 260 Km2 crater ﬂoor is covered in open grassy plains, acacia thickets, riverine forest, and lakes. Relatively small it may be, but the crater really does pack one heck of a punch, offering the highest density of wildlife in Africa, including the Big 5 and over 400 species of birds. Arguably one of the most lavish properties on the safari circuit, The Manor at Ngorongoro is located within the Shangri-La Coffee estate, on the edge of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The Manor, with its old-world Afro-European architecture, offers luxurious accommodation in the most beautiful grounds. Fine dining and exquisite food are delivered with the best in African hospitality, with the swimming pool, spa, games room, cinema and stables offer a variety of ways of enjoying your time at the property. The Manor is surrounded by the natural beauty of the Tanzanian highlands, and is less than half an hour from The Ngorongoro Crater rim,and within close proximity to Lake Manyara National Park.

Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981, Tanzania’s oldest national park is without a doubt the jewel in Tanzania’s spectacular crown. The Serengeti is abundant with wildlife year-round, as well as playing host to one of nature’s greatest spectacles, the Great Migration. This incredible region, with its expansive grassy plains and never-ending horizon has attracted and inspired naturalists, filmmakers, writers, conservationists and tourists for generations, and continues to do so.
