Arusha and Arusha National Park

The town of Arusha, Tanzania self-styled safari capital, is more of a tourist funnel than a destination in its own right, but the eponymous national park, less than an hour’s drive away, offers the opportunity to undertake game drives, or canoe on bird-rich lakes, or explore densely forested volcanic craters - all within eyeshot of the peerless snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro.

The Serengeti

The famous ‘northern circuit’ is home to Stomping ground of the 2 million strong Great Migration and home to the highest concentration of predators in Africa, Serengeti National Park is one of those rare places that exceeds your imagination. The Serengeti is the Africa that we all have in our minds – endless grass plains stretching as far as the horizon, punctuated only by the odd flat-topped acacia tree.
