Here you will enjoy a complimentary upgrade to one of our 12 Plantation Suites. Your stay at The Arusha Coffee Lodge is on an all-inclusive basis (includes all meals, drinks, laundry service and transfers).
The Arusha Coffee Lodge is a haven for calming composure before or after your Elewana safari. Located in Arusha, at the foot of Mt. Meru, nestled among seemingly endless acres of emerald green coffee bushes, is the idyllic Arusha Coffee Lodge. Her farmhouse styled plantation houses welcome you to experience an unexpected class of style and service.

After breakfast and a briefing on your Sky Safari you can enjoy a Coffee Tour on a nearby plantation. After an Alfresco Lunch in the gardens of the lodge you will be chauffeured to Arusha Airport for your flight to Kuro Airstrip in Tarangire National Park. On arrival at the airstrip, the Tarangire Treetops team will meet you for a game drive in Tarangire National Park ending in Treetops’ Private Reserve. You will arrive at Tarangire Treetops in time for sundowners.
Your stay here at Tarangire Treetops is for 2 nights in a Tree House, and is on an all-inclusive basis (includes all meals, drinks, laundry service, transfers, game drives and scheduled activities).
The Tarangire Treetops’ houses meander through the branches of thousand-year old trees.
The nights are magical, as the winds seem to carry bedtime stories from the ancient branches of the mighty marula and baobabs, to calm your senses and cradle your slumber. Under these clear and sparkling African skies your dreams and fairy tales have been waiting for you! Nowhere, does fantasy come alive as it does here. Awaken to beautiful bird song, leave only your footprints, take only your memories, as you walk alongside the creatures of the African wilderness.
After breakfast at Treetops you will enjoy a full day of activities including game drives, a visit to an authentic Masai village, a game walk, sundowners in the bush and a night game drive. Lunch and dinner will be served at Treetops.
Tarangire National Park
Tarangire has a stunning baobab-studded landscape and is a bird watchers paradise, containing the highest number of breeding bird species of any habitat in the world. It is also home to thousands of resident elephants and huge herds of buffalo, a good place to see leopard and lion and a wide variety of plains game.
Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It’s the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem – a smorgasbord for predators – and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed.
Dinner at Treetops is always a delight, whether it is in the MasaiManyatta under the stars with local Masai warriors to entertain or in the more sophisticated dhow-wood furnished restaurant overlooking the floodlit waterhole being overlooked in turn by giant baobab trees.
After breakfast, you will enjoy a morning game drive through Tarangire National Park. Stop at leisure for a picnic lunch on your way to Kuro Airstrip and connect to Manyara Airstrip. On arrival, our team from The Manor at Ngorongoro will meet you and transfer you to The Manor where you will arrive in time for high-tea.
Here, your 2-night stay will be in a cottage on an all-inclusive basis (includes all meals, drinks, laundry service, transfers, game drives, and scheduled activities).
The Manor at Ngorongoro, located on a huge coffee estate adjacent to the Ngorongoro Conservation area, enjoys magnificent views over the coffee bushes to far-flung African horizons. Designed to celebrate the Cape Dutch settlers influence in the region, its sparkling, white painted, ornate gables are set off perfectly amongst the mature indigenous and exotic trees.
Enjoy the splendor of watching the sun go down from your private terrace before an evening of sophisticated up–country hospitality in the magnificent main house.
After breakfast, an Elewana vehicle will drive you down the crater for a full day of exploration of the Ngorongoro Crater. A picnic hamper lunch will be served on the crater floor. After lunch, you will explore more of the crater before heading back to the Manor for the evening cocktails, dinner and overnight.
Ngorongoro & The Crater
The Ngorongoro Crater in Northern Tanzania, once a gigantic volcano, is the largest intact caldera in the world. Some maintain that before it erupted, it would have been higher than Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Today, long since having collapsed and eroded, it is an extensive highland area with the famous 600 m deep Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point. Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth.
Endangered black rhino are protected within its rim, giant tusked elephants wander the forests, black-maned lions stalk the grasslands, and flamingoes crowd the soda lakes. An estimated 25 000 large mammals are resident in this bowl of plenty, including a population of approximately 6 000 resident wildebeest, 16 highly endangered black rhino and around 70 lions. Cheetah move in and out of the Crater, while leopard are most often encountered in the spectacular Lerai Forest.
Today, you have the option of visiting the Lake Manyara National Park or staying at the lodge to explore the estate. Choose from a host of activities including horseback riding, cycling, an estate tour or a massage treatment or you may opt to just relax. After lunch you will be driven to Manyara airstrip for your onward flight to the Serengeti, where you will stay at either Serengeti Pioneer Camp or Serengeti Migration Camp.
The choice of Camp will be made in advance of your arrival to Tanzania with the decision based on which location will provide the optimum game-viewing opportunities. Both Camps provide exceptional accommodation and are located close to the migratory path of the wildebeests Migration. However each camp benefits from resident wildlife – all-year round. Enjoy full-day game drives, bush luncheons and dinners as well as evenings under the stars at the Camps. You will spend the next 2 nights in a luxurious safari tent, on all-inclusive basis (includes all meals, drinks (premium drinks excluded), laundry service, transfers, game drives and scheduled activities).
Serengeti Migration camp is hidden in a beautiful place where the spirit of your origins is rekindled, a place where the breeze whispers in your ear, assuring you that life has meaning beyond the “everyday”. She is a spa for your soul and nourishment for life’s numbness. At Migration Camp, silence and peace are so enchanting, that they create a private symphony whose audience is your every sensation. Discover the pleasure of raw wilderness on a level never imagined.
Located in South Central Serengeti – Tanzania – (within the Moru Kopjes area), Serengeti Pioneer Camp is ideally situated to offer superlative access to the annual migration and the ‘Big 5’ with sweeping views overlooking Moru Kopjes, Lake Magadi and the endless plains.
Comprising of ten-tented accommodations, all of which have en-suite facilities including a flushing toilet, vanity basin, and showers, the tent interiors are designed to evoke the very best of an era long-gone but certainly not forgotten.
Serengeti Pioneer Camp captures the original essence of the mobile African safari, engendering nostalgic wonderment whilst unlocking the adventurous spirit within all of us.The drama and beauty of the Serengeti National Park is indeed awe inspiring.
After breakfast you will spend the full day exploring the vast Serengeti. Enjoy a lunch in the bush, after which the afternoon will be spent game viewing. You will return to your camp in time for sundowners and dinner.
It is not possible to say with any accuracy where the Great Migration of the Wildebeest will be at any one time. There are a number of determining factors depending on the rains and the grazing. However one can be assured that if there is a good chance of seeing it then this can be accomplished from Migration Camp. So today will be spent in an open safari cruiser, well stocked with a picnic hamper and cool drinks, for the great expedition to find the Migration.
But it should be remembered that not all the animals in the Serengeti opt to join the wildebeest in their time-honored circuit to find the best grazing. Zebras certainly tag along and a good number of predators who are looking for the weak and unwary. But many species are quite happy with their own territory, which makes a day’s game driving in the Serengeti an absolute delight and an experience to be treasured and remembered.
Watch a spectacular sunrise whilst staying at Pioneer Camp or stretch your legs on a game walk if you are
staying at Migration Camp. Lunch will be served at the lodge and thereafter a game drive enroute to the
airstrip for your flight back to Arusha. On arrival you will be welcomed and met by an Elewana representative and chauffeured to Arusha Coffee Lodge. Depending on your outbound flight details, enjoy the use of a .dayroom and then you will be chauffeured to Kilimanjaro Airport.
