An exclusive safari to discover Tanzania and Rwanda most enchanting gems
13 Days / 12 Nights Itinerary
Kilimanjaro | Grumeti Private Reserve
Fly into Kilimanjaro International Airport where you will be met by your host and transferred to the VIP Lounge before connecting to a private charter flight to Serengeti House. Settling into your beautifully-appointed luxury suite you will enjoy stunning savanna views and wildlife sightings direct from your private terrace.
Grumeti Game Drive | Night Safari
Rise early for breakfast then climb into a six-seater, state-of-the-art Land Rover and head out into the pristine wilderness on your first game drive. Bordering the west of Serengeti National Park, Grumeti is known for its high concentration of wildlife found amidst a stunning landscape of rolling hills, woodlands and rivers.
Grumeti River | Bush Barbecue | Wine Tasting
Grumeti is on the migration route and giant herds of animals, stalked by lions and other predators must cross the Grumeti River where crocodiles lie in wait. During this time our game drives will focus on thrilling river crossings, but the rich grazing lands around the river guarantee fabulous game viewing year round.
Big Cats | Bush Picnic
Leaving the rolling hills of Grumeti behind we descend to the Seronera region of majestic Serengeti National Park on a full day safari. This area is known as the Big Cat Capital of Africa, due to its proliferation of lion, leopard and cheetah.
Hot Air Balloon Ride | Anti-Poaching Observation Post
This morning you have the incredible opportunity to take game viewing to new heights – literally, as you soar over the savanna and acacia forests in a hot air balloon marvelling at wildlife below. Floating just above the trees you will have bird’s eye views of crocodiles wallowing in the shallows, zebra grazing on the plains and lions hiding in the bushes as they stalk their prey.
Game Drive | Village Visit
Start your day with an inspiring yoga and mindfulness meditation session on an outdoor deck under the big blue African sky before heading out on a game drive. Aside from regular sightings of the Big Five, you can also expect to see aardvarks, giraffes, jackals, mongoose, monitor lizard and many primates including baboons, colobus monkeys and over 500 species of bird.
Game Drive | Yoga | Farewell Dinner
Following an exhilarating morning game drive or a lazy morning by the pool we visit a local village where you will learn about Tanzanian culture and see valuable community outreach programs in action. Spend the afternoon at leisure enjoying all the facilities of Serengeti House or take a gentle hike with a private guide.
Volcanoes National Park
Board your private charter flight to Kigali International Airport in Rwanda, then a private helicopter for the 30 minute flight to Ruhengeri Airstrip. From here you will be transferred to Kataza House, a short drive away. Settle into your luxurious private accommodation then explore your new surroundings with a gentle stroll through the flourishing on site nursery where you can enjoy a herbal brew in the tea house.
Wake at dawn for a light breakfast followed by a ten-minute drive to the Park Office at Volcanoes National Park.

Gorillas share 98% of human DNA, and spending time with them in the magnificent cloud forests of Rwanda is a rare privilege.
