Golfing In The Shadow Of Kilimanjaro - Rivertrees Country Inn

Day 1:

Overnight: Rivertrees

Arrive into Kilimanjaro International Airport where you will be met by an Asilia driver. Transfer to your accommodation for the night – a journey of between 30 minutes and an hour depending on traffic. If you have time free this afternoon and wish to sightsee, we can offer a range of activities around Arusha – ask your Asilia consultant for details. Otherwise simply relax in the pretty gardens and recover from your international flights before your safari begins tomorrow

Set amongst pretty gardens with a river flowing along one side, Rivertrees Country Inn is located on the eastern side of Arusha, around 30 minutes’ drive from Kilimanjaro International Airport. There are 37 rooms dotted around the property, and there is a swimming pool and great restaurant

day 2:

Overnight: Ngorongoro Farmhouse Valley

Your Asilia safari guide will meet you this morning after breakfast and you will depart in your 4x4 private safari vehicle for the small town of Karatu. The journey will take around 4-5 hours and will provide plenty of opportunities to see local life as you pass small villages and towns. As you get closer to the Great Rift Valley the scenery will change, more and more small farms and coffee plantations will appear until you arrive in the small market town of Karatu – your gateway and access point to the Ngorongoro Highlands.

This property is set on a 500-acre plot which includes coffee plantations, wheat fields, veg patches and beautifully kept gardens with a swimming pool. It is certainly on the larger side with 30 rooms, but the service here retains a sense of intimacy and the rooms are spacious and comfortable.

 

Day 3:

Overnight: Ngorongoro Farmhouse Valley

Enjoy game drives in the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Ngorongoro Crater today. This dormant volcano provides a natural sanctuary for a wonderful diversity of wildlife, including black rhino, lion, buffalo, elephant, leopard and more. Typically, you will spend the morning exploring with your guide, have a picnic lunch and then depart in the mid-afternoon to your lodge to relax for the remainder of the day.

Day 4:

Overnight: Nasikia Mobile Camp

An early breakfast before you depart with your driver-guide for the open plains of the Serengeti. You will drive around the western part of the Ngorongoro crater before dropping down into the savannah and entering the park through the Naabi Hill gate, stopping in a shady spot for lunch. Once you’re within the Serengeti you will game drive as you make your way to Ndutu which is in the southern region of the park, stopping to enjoy wildlife sightings on the way. Arrive at your camp in the mid/ late afternoon and enjoy a well-earned rest before dinner.

This is a classic tented, mobile camp which moves around the Serengeti twice per year following the migration herds. When in the north of the Serengeti it is in the Kogatende region, close to the Mara River. When in the south it is in an area known as Ndutu, on the NCAA side. With just 12 merustyle tents it offers simple but comfortable accommodation in a prime location. All tents have ensuite bathrooms with bucket showers. There is a fire pit for sundowner cocktails and canvas mess tent for communal dinning.

days 5-6:

Overnight: Nasikia Mobile Camp

Enjoy game drives with your driver-guide exploring the open savannah of the Serengeti in the early morning and late afternoon, returning to camp for lunch. You can also pack a picnic and go out for a full day if you wish. The density and diversity of wildlife in the Serengeti is second to none, with plentiful big cats, elephant, buffalo, giraffe and so much more. Hot air ballooning is also possible at an additional cost (prebooking recommended) for an unforgettable way to start your day, soaring high above the park at sunrise and enjoying a champagne cooked breakfast afterwards

Day 7:

Return to Kilimanjaro

After breakfast in camp, you will be driven to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Kilimanjaro Airport in Arusha, a flight of approximately 3 hours depending on the number of stops made along the way to drop off/pick up passengers (15 kg luggage limit per person in soft bags). You’ll land into the international airport and can check in for your international flight home.
