About this independent tour

Recommended highlights

NGORONGORO HIGHLANDS From Arusha, travel by road to Gibb’s Farm in the heart of the Great Rift Valley and Ngorongoro Highlands. Gibb’s Farm offers something quite unique in Tanzania. It’s not a hotel, nor a safari lodge – although it lies just half an hour from the Ngorongoro Crater so there’s still excellent wildlife viewing to be had close by. Instead, it’s a charming guesthouse that was originally a 1920s coffee farm, with lush floral gardens, coffee and vegetable fields, and views over the rolling hills. During a three-night stay you’ll be encouraged to immerse yourself in ‘farm life experiences’. Most importantly, you’ll visit the extraordinary volcanic landscape of the Ngorongoro Crater – the largest unbroken ancient caldera in the world that teems with wild game including elephant, lion, rhino and Thomson’s gazelle.

SERENGETI BUSHTOPS At the exclusive Serengeti Bushtops you can enjoy the finest in bush hospitality and an unsurpassed safari experience, with morning and evening game drives in state-of-the-art 4x4 vehicles. At the end of your safari, a light aircraft flight will whisk you back to Arusha.

BEACH STAY An exotic island dotted with white sand beaches and world-class hotels, Zanzibar is the perfect post-safari tonic. And it’s just a short flight from Arusha, so it’s easy to extend your trip.
