Here's an Example of an 8-Day Safari for the Discerning Couple (Sep-Oct)
Arrive JRO / Mount Meru Resort
Upon your arrival to Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will enjoy a warm welcome by ADS staff and the two of you will be assisted through customs hassle-free. From here, you'll be escorted to the ultra-luxurious, 5-star Mount Meru Resort in Arusha to begin your private safari adventure surrounded by some of Africa's most famous landscapes and national parks. Nestled between the peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru, this little town will be the gateway to your romantic safari get away and a perfect introduction to the awe-inspiring wonders of Tanzania.
North Serengeti / Serengeti BushTops Lodge
On your morning bush flight to the Mara River you'll witness an epic number of animals, jaw-dropping scenery and the most stunning spectacle in all of Africa - The Great Migration. The N. Serengeti is an especially secluded region, utterly devoid of human civilization - the perfect place to begin your exclusive and private safari adventure.
Your private driver guide will be waiting for you at the airstrip with a romantic picnic lunch to enjoy during your first game drive. Witness elephant herds, mighty buffalo, and stately giraffes drifting through the acacia trees. See lions shifting through the undergrowth and leopards slinking through the forest. Watch hippos sunbathe and stalk the giant herds of wildebeest and zebra as they contemplate the river.
Unwind from the day's excitement in decadent luxury at the Serengeti Bushtops Lodge. Retreat to your private balcony and let a golden sunset end your first day. Enjoy a romantic private dinner by the flicker of a candle's glow in a setting redolent of the movie 'Out of Africa'.
North Serengeti / Serengeti BushTops Lodge
Drive straight back to the Mara River this morning on a private game drive in search of the Great Migration. With a little luck and timing you may get to witness a crossing. Nothing rivals the excitement of watching a thousand wildebeest and zebra plunge into the glittering waters of the great Mara River. The great herds may need to battle raging currents, clatter over slippery boulders the size of cars, climb vertical banks as tall as a building, dodge the snapping jaws of crocodiles and avoid being trampled by their fellow companions. Regardless of whether or not you get to see a crossing, you will find drama near the migration and it's well worth seeking them out and following whatever story they tell that day.
Head back to Serengeti BushTops Lodge early so you can relax after a morning of excitement. You may choose to indulge in a complimentary massage and a private dinner on your balcony, or just cuddle up by the outdoor bonfire. Enjoy the exotic outdoor shower or take a sudsy soak in your own private hot tub. Fall in love all over again under an iridescent canopy of stars.
North Serengeti / Migration Tented Lodge
Wake together to the tweets, chirrups, and warbles of the Serengeti morning percolating through the canvas walls of your tent. Enjoy steaming hot coffee, tea and cookies delivered by your personal butler to your private veranda, followed by a delicious hot breakfast cooked to order on the alfresco dining terrace.
Today's adventure will take you through the sprawling grey boulders of Wogakuria and the open green valleys of Bologonja, all the way to the wildlife filled Lobo Valley. Along the way, you may spot lions hunting, leopards prowling and cheetahs stalking. The N. Serengeti is especially famous for large herds of buffalo and elephant. You will find yourself falling into rhythm with nature and time will have little meaning.
Enjoy the early evening at Migration Tented Lodge as you sit by the warm glow of the bonfire and sip your favorite cocktail overlooking the spectacular sunset. Enjoy a romantic 4-course dinner on the outdoor dining terrace by candlelight. Fall asleep to the chorus of hippos in the river below.
Central Serengeti / Four Seasons Bilila Lodge
Awake to another brilliant morning 'in the bush' and embark on an early morning game drive. On the way to the Central Serengeti, you will pass by a tawny expanse of grassland known as the Tagora Plain, where you have a good chance to see cheetah and lions. Finally you will reach the famous Seronera River Valley, lined with exotic palm trees, famed for large prides of lions and one of the best places in all of Africa to see the elusive leopard.
Arrive at the luxurious Four Seasons Bilila Lodge so you can both enjoy the ample amenities of this opulent property. Take a swim together in the infinity pool, get a spa treatment or just enjoy the stunning views of the surrounding wilderness, including a nearby water hole where thirsty animals come to quench their thirst. Watch the elongated shadows of evening stretch into night and let your cares melt with the setting sun. Enjoy a romantic dinner and toast to your journey together so far "Maisha Marefu!" ("Cheers" or "Long Life" in Swahili). Let the sounds of the Serengeti night lull you to dreams.
Central Serengeti / Hot Air Balloon Ride
Wake up before sunrise for your hot air balloon safari over the spectacular Serengeti wilderness. Glide peacefully above the tropical oasis of the Seronera River Valley and chase the changing colors of dawn as they wash through the morning sky. From this height you can witness a totally unique perspective of the untrammeled wilderness below. Your pilot can precisely control the altitude of your path while sometimes flying at treetop height and at other times ascending to 1000 feet. After landing, you will be served a traditional champagne toast.
Enjoy a romantic 'bush breakfast' cooked to order just for you and served beneath the shady awning of an umbrella acacia tree. Continue your day together exploring the remarkable wonders of the Serengeti in search of the Big Five and more. Your private guide will make sure you get well off the beaten path to maximize the serenity and exclusivity of your adventure. Retire to your room for some well-earned relaxation in your comfortable room and get ready for tomorrow's next adventure.
Serengeti / Ngorongoro Crater Lodge
Today you will travel to the depths of the Ngorongoro Crater - a collapsed volcano recognized by some as one of the seven natural wonders of Africa. Your journey will take you through the Serengeti park gate, across an open expanse of flat plains and into the rolling Ngorongoro Highlands, culminating at the brim of the great cauldron - a real life "Garden of Eden".
End your day at the world-famous Crater Lodge - one of the most architecturally spectacular safari lodges in Africa. The colonial-style interiors combine silver, gold and ruby colors under banana-leaf ceilings and grass roofs. The spacious rooms, filled with authentic antiques, voluptuous silk curtains and African art, each have private viewing decks that overlook the breathtaking Crater. Enjoy a bubble bath crowned in rose petals and then sink into leather wingback chairs by your own personal fireplace as you taste fine artisan-made chocolate and brandy. Return from a romantic and opulent dinner for two, to a turned-down king-sized bed with heated sheets.
Ngorongoro Crater / Arusha / Kilimanjaro
Wake up together on your last day to the serene and magestic surroundings of the Crater Lodge. Step out onto your balcony and see zebras so close you can almost touch them. Enjoy your last hearty breakfast in the soft early morning light of the Tanzanian sun. Descend into the depths of the infamous Ngorongoro Crater into a new safari adventure. From black-maned lions to blushing flamingos to the colossal 'big-tusker' elephants, there are no shortage of wonders to be seen here!
Swing through Lake Manyara National Park on the way back to Arusha. A kaleidoscope of birdlife, butterflies and monkeys flit through the forest canopy here, while Lake Manyara's glassy surface shimmers in the distance. You can enjoy some last minute shopping in Arusha prior to checking into your day room to relax, repack and refresh. Depart to the airport and say goodbye to your trusted guide who has hosted your private safari adventure. You will never forget the memories shared with your loved here in the magic of Tanzania.
