Wild Excursions & Safaris

9 Days February Calving Season Safari in Tanzania

9 Days




Day 1 Arrival in Arusha

Staying at Legendary Lodge On arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will be met and transferred to the Legendary Lodge, which will be your home for one night with all your meals included. The lodge offers luxury accommodation set in a lush garden with a unique blend of colonial heritage, surrounded by a working coffee farm. These garden cottages offer views of the imposing Mount Meru and are only minutes away from the city of Arusha. Enjoy a day trip to the nearby national parks and coffee tours.


Day 2 - 3: The perfect start - Tarangire National park

Staying at Sanctuary Swala Camp You'll drive to Tarangire National Park, where you'll reside for the next two days of your safari. Nestled in a remote pocket of Tarangire National Park, Sanctuary Swala Camp is situated under a canopy of large acacia trees at the edge of a wetland, overlooking the rolling savannah beyond. Swala offers you private game viewing, wilderness luxury and a truly wild slice of Africa. In fact, elephants are almost always present in and around the lodge. Swala seems to be a ‘hangout’ for a bachelor herd of males and females sometimes passing through to give birth nearby. Enjoy guided game drives and nature walks that will give you the opportunity to spot large herds of elephant, migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest, kudu and oryx, with predators in tow. Highlights include seeing Tarangire’s pythons make their way up the trees, as well as lion and the leopard which prefer to lounge in the branches where the fruit of the sausage tree disguises the twitch of a tail.


Day 4 - 5: Once-in-a-lifetime experience

Staying at Entamanu Ngorongoro Camp This morning you are transferred to Entamanu Ngorongoro from Sanctuary Swala Camp. A packed picnic lunch is included during your transfer.
