THE PROGRAM

Welcome to Tanzania! Today you arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport in Arusha, Tanzania. On arrival, you are met by the representative of Emmarosh Travel and driven to your accommodations. Resting at the foot of Mount Meru, the sprawling city of Arusha is known as the safari capital of northern Tanzania. It serves as an excellent base from which to explore the remarkably scenic surrounding area which includes majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, as well as the Manyara, Tarangire and Ngorongoro National Parks. Arusha is a good spot to take a day or two off from the safari circuit as it features a temperate climate and lush surrounds. Visitors can look forward to exploring the wildlife-abundant Serengeti National Park; the magnificent Arusha National Park; and taking on the challenge of climbing Mount Meru, Africa’s fifth highest mountain. Located in a verdant coffee plantation, Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge is a sanctuary of aromatic tranquility and a welcome retreat after a long international flight, or the dust and excitement of a thrilling bush safari.   Reminiscent of traditional plantation houses, 30 wooden chalets with spacious, airy, and modern interiors are nestled amongst the surrounding gardens and coffee trees.   Turning off the road, a tree-lined driveway guides you to the warm and inviting main area with its quiet understated aura of luxury. Vibrant gardens, a spa, a collection of boutiques and a swimming pool await, and a restaurant, Bacchus, and café bistro, 3° South, boast menus to satisfy the most discerning of palates.

Today you will be flown to Tarangire. On arrival, you are met and assisted to your accommodations. Enjoy your afternoon safari drive. Tarangire National Park, situated within Tanzania’s spectacular Manyara Region, is an awe-inspiring national park comprising of granite ridges, river valleys, mixed vegetative landscapes, and free-roaming wildlife. During the annual dry season, the Tarangire River is a magnet for thirsty wildlife. Large herds of elephants and migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest, and eland gather and not surprisingly the predators follow. With lion being among the most spotted animal, it is a rare day that a visitor does not spot this majestic animal prowling or grazing. Tarangire is also the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as oryx and gerenuk are seen regularly. This expansive area is also known for its spectacular baobab trees, its breathtaking views of the Masaai Steppe and the wondrous mountains to the south. In the heart of Maasai country and a remote corner of the Tarangire, in total seclusion amongst giant acacia trees and looking out beyond the flat savannah, Sanctuary Swala offers a very exclusive safari experience. The picturesque landscape is filled with ancient baobab trees, ambling elephants, and birds in flight. Built to the highest eco-friendly standards, this camp has a particularly low-carbon footprint. Sanctuary Swala’s welcoming communal spaces blend chic style with relaxed open-air living. Traditional peaked thatch roofs harmonize beautifully with the surroundings bush and keep these areas cool in the hot months. Set on stilts around towering ancient baobab trees, the elevated dining area, lounge, and library, are sound tracked by the singsong of the hundreds of species of birds that have their home in the mature acacia trees’ canopy. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in the main area and in guests’ tents.   Twelve spacious canvas pavilions ensure unrivalled tranquility, overlooking a popular watering hole. King-size beds swathed in neutral linens mingle fresh design with a new take on safari living. Indoor and outdoor bush-view showers ensure more magical moments because connecting with wildlife is key: the floor-to-ceiling 180° views, and the pavilions’ private decks, mean you will not miss a sight.
