Notes:

Day 01

Kilimanjaro

Arrive Kilimanjaro airport. Meet your driver on arrival into Kilimanjaro International Airport and transfer to Oliver's Camp in
Tarangire National Park.

If you wish, the option of a night drive is also available at an extra cost; watch the antelopes feed in the cool night air and predators stalking their prey
under the cover of darkness. Otherwise, sip a cool gin & tonic as the sun sinks below the horizon and head back to camp for dinner under a blanket of stars.

**Oliver's Camp - In the southern reaches of the secluded Tarangire National Park, Oliver’s camp is an echo of the trailblazing camps that pioneered the early days of safari. Located in a spectacular location close to the animal dense Silale Swamps and overlooking a flood plain of the Minyonyo Pools, the camp offers a magnificent view and easy access to a dense concentration of wildlife year-round. With only ten beautifully appointed and stylish tents, intimacy is ensured and the world-class team of staff who have worked together for many years completes an experience that guests consistently rank amongst their best, and most inspiring, of all time.**

Overnight: Oliver's Camp
Meal: --/Lunch/Dinner

Day 02

Oliver's Camp, Tarangire

After breakfast with the rising sun, you will leave camp with your guide for the morning drive. Drives are conducted in comfortable 4x4 vehicles and will last roughly 4-5 hours, offering the chance to spot buffalo, elephant, giraffe, gazelle and, of course, the ever present predators.

Take a picnic lunch with you and eat under the shade of the large baobabs that dot the landscape, or head back to camp and enjoy lunch in the main dining room. Relax in camp during the heat of the day, before continuing your exploration of the area on the afternoon drive.

In the evening, enjoy dinner at the camp and head to the campfire where whiskies are poured and safari tales told late into the night.

**NB There is no better way to experience the wilderness of East Africa up close and personal than on foot, and walking safaris with an expert guide from Oliver's are also available at an extra cost.**

Overnight: Oliver's Camp
Meal: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner

Day 03

The Highlands, Ngorongoro

After breakfast, pack your bags and begin the drive to The Highlands camp in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the newest addition to the Asilia portfolio. Oliver's Camp will provide a packed lunch to enjoy on the journey.

After you have settled in to your domed suite, spend the afternoon following the ancient Maasai trails to the top of the Olmoti crater (NB For full board guests, there will be an extra charge for the walk). The gentle 2-3 hour ascent leads you through mountain forest, grassland and rocky outcrops and is a
botanist’s dream with varying vegetation and a variety of splendid fern species on show. The birding is outstanding and once at the summit, you will be treated to a simply stunning view of the Olmoti crater itself. On return to camp settle in for the night around the inside fireplace, the perfect place to unwind at the end of your long day exploring.

Overnight: The Highlands
Meal: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner

Day 04

The Highlands, Ngorongoro

Wake up with the rising sun and begin the 40 minute drive from The Highlands to the Ngorongoro Crater rim. Look out for the zebra interspersed with the Maasai cattle as they are brought out to pasture, and the magnificent view down to the Ngorongoro Crater. You will spend the morning exploring the vast 300 sq km crater floor with the opportunity to spot the Big 5 and the many roaming predators present on the mineral rich floor.

Lunch will be served on the crater floor, and in the afternoon, you may continue your exploration of the crater or perhaps visit one of the local Maasai communities close to camp, offering an insight into the traditional way of life that has defined this corner of East Africa for centuries.

Overnight: The Highlands
Meal: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner

**Ubuntu Camp - Ubuntu Camp is an intimate and traditional 8-roomed safari camp that moves with the Great Wildebeest Migration across the Serengeti to consistently offer spectacular game viewing opportunities. Each tent has flush toilets, running water and safari showers in en-suite bathrooms, and beautiful verandas to take in the view of the endless plains. “Ubuntu” refers to the human characteristics of generosity and consideration of others, and the hospitality of the friendly staff, great food and a wonderfully relaxed environment ensure the camp lives up to its name.**

Meal: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner

Day 06

Ubuntu Camp, Serengeti

Depart from camp for your morning game drive as the sun casts its first rays over the land. Spend some time watching the great wildebeest herds plunging across the Mara River, or search for the predators that prowl across the landscape, waiting for an opportunity to pounce on the plains game that graze lazily on the grass.

Take breakfast with you and return to camp for lunch, or leave camp a little later in the morning and enjoy a picnic lunch in the bush before the adventure continues on your afternoon drive. If you are sharing a vehicle on a Game Package basis, the camp will do everything they can to ensure your ideal itinerary for the day is met.
