Description of Tanzania luxury safari

Tanzania, a land of wide-open savannahs, incredible wildlife, idyllic palm fringed islands and of course, Africa’s largest mountain, the majestic Kilimanjaro, invites you to discover the wild, romantic Africa of your dreams. This is the ‘cradle of mankind’ where you can see the oldest remains of Homo Hablis at Olduvai Gorge.

A million wildebeest, each driven by the same ancient rhythm, pound the plains of the Serengeti into Kenya’s Masai Mara performing their annual pilgrimage. Triggered by the first rains, wildebeest, zebra and gazelle undertake the long trek to find pastures new and to calve. This epic migration is best seen in the south of the Serengeti between December and April and, in the north and western corridor, from June to October.

Equally synonymous with Tanzania is the Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest inactive, intact, and unfilled volcanic caldera. The crater, which formed when a large volcano exploded and collapsed on itself two to three million years ago, is 610 metres (2,000 feet) deep and its floor covers 260 square kilometres (100 square miles). This UNESCO World Heritage site is dotted with watering holes that shelter some 30,000 animals. A game drive in this natural amphitheatre allows a rare intimacy with the wildlife that roam this paradise.

When to go: From June to February is the best time to visit as it is dry and pleasantly warm. Rainy season is generally in April and May.

Beach extension: We can extend this holiday to include beach time in Zanzibar - please ask us for more details.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Tanzania luxury safari


Our ground handlers are partners with Eco Tourism Kenya, an organization which promotes responsible tourism practices within the industry.

If one of our tours is labelled an eco-tour that means it only visits eco certified lodges.

The lodges and accommodation used on this itinerary are committed to the long-term conservation of the environment and wildlife in Tanzania. Our local agents are very active in supporting local schools and different environmental projects, managing donations from guests and contributing to the management of school projects. The camp owners work closely with the local communities in order to help improve the living conditions of the local people.

From migratory birds to iconic African cats and endangered rhinos, critical species are being threatened by increasing pressures such as population growth, industrialization, insufficient management, improper protection, global climate change and more. We seek to work with local stakeholders to defend, protect and conserve some of the world’s most imperiled species. Join us today in supporting work that keeps the unique wildlife of Africa thriving.


The company we use own all the camps and lodges on this particular tour. The have trained and employed local people from surrounding villages and tribes to work in camp/lodges.

Each of the Elewana Collection lodges and camps of which the Arusha Coffee Lodge is one, works closely with local community projects, and seek wherever possible to employ and train from the local communities themselves. More details of each of the camps and lodges specific endeavours can be found on their respective web sites.

Supporting a variety of causes including several local orphanages, Elewana also recognises the desire of its guests to actively participate in helping these charities and therefore provide a unique opportunity for all those staying at the Arusha Coffee Lodge to donate, doing so safe in the knowledge that the money given goes straight to where it is needed, with no third parties involved.
Elewana will continue to strive toward creating harmony and understanding with all, and to build stronger bridges between each and every community with which it works.

At Asilia Lodges, they strive to improve livelihoods in various ways to strengthen communities, safeguard the natural world, and create successful conservation economies that lead to a sustainable and healthy ecosystem that supports people and wildlife. All people should have access to every opportunity to help themselves reach their full potential. Based on this belief, we support programs and activities that benefit education at all levels. More broadly, we work within a framework that puts an emphasis on collaboration to ensure a comprehensive area approach where long-term employment opportunities are being developed for individuals from communities living in and around the areas where we work. Join us today to support communities and education within and around the areas we operate in.
Please refer to the Asilia website for detailed information on the communities and charities they support in Africa.
