This 10-day trip brings guests to some of the most unique parts of Tanzania. Beginning with a flight to Kilimanjaro, upon landing, guests are taken away to a garden chalet in a protected area of Arusha, boasting views of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru. After a day of relaxing, head into Lake Manyara National Park to walk amongst dense woodland and soda lake before enjoying a picnic. This park is known for its unique tree-climbing lion population, as well as some of the largest baboon groups in the country. Guests also might have the chance to spot elephant herds and flamingos.
