Optional Serengeti Pre-Tour Package:

4-Night Safari | March 7 – 11, 2023

Experience Big Five wildlife and wildebeest calving season on a 4-night A&K safari across the sweeping Serengeti plains. Explore the bush in style at the Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti, an amazing lodge set deep within Serengeti National Park.


Gran Meliá Arusha | 1 Night
A perfect pit stop for exploring the wilderness of the Serengeti, this East African resort brings a touch of Spanish flair to the Arusha region. Tucked under Tanzania’s mighty Mount Meru, expect striking views across pristine landscaped gardens and a dazzling backdrop of the dramatic Great Rift Valley. With world-renowned chef Sanjeev Kapoor, the Yellow Chilli restaurant offers the most authentic taste of India. Two additional restaurants ensure there is a dish to suit every taste.

Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti | 3 Nights
This luxury lodge sits deep in the heart of the world’s most celebrated wildlife reserves, where the Big Five – the lion, the leopard, the buffalo, the elephant and the rhinoceros – run free on the endless, untamed landscape. Perched on a series of elevated platforms and walkways, the lodge sits next to an animal watering hole, where you can watch a family of elephants stop for their morning drink as you sip your own out on your room’s private balcony. Under the constant protection of local Maasai tribes people, you will head into the bush for exhilarating game drives, or soar high in the sky on a hot-air balloon safari.

Spend the next two days exploring Serengeti National Park on morning and afternoon game drives, ever on the lookout for Africa’s Big Five animals—the lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros, and Cape buffalo. Your visit is well timed with wildebeest calving season, when more than 8,000 of calves are born. Enjoy an optional hot air balloon safari (at an additional cost), gliding over the Serengeti for a unique perspective, followed by a champagne toast and breakfast on the savannah. This evening, sit down to a specially prepared private dinner in the bush.
