Arusha National Park

Arusha National Park has an abundant variety of wild animals and is a hiker's paradise. In the vicinity of the park, walking trips to nearby villages, farms and traditional markets provide an insight into the life of the Wameru Tribe. Visits to a local coffee farm or, walking safaris with the Maasai living below on the steppe are just a few of the many options available to guests staying at African View Lodge.
  African View Lodge
Lying at the foot of Mount Meru with stunning views of the mountain and nestled in the small village of Ngongongare, you will find our African View Lodge. Located a good half hour drive from Kilimanjaro International Airport and, likewise from Arusha town, our lodge is the perfect base to start your climbing trips to Mount Meru (4566 m) and Kilimanjaro (5895 m) as well as for safaris.


 

Serengeti National Park

Tanzania's oldest and most popular national park is famous for its' annual wildebeest migration, when millions of herbivores pound the open plains during their endless journey for fresh grazing. Yet, even when the migration is in the Mara, the Serengeti is still undoubtedly the most impressive game-viewing area in Africa.
  Serengeti View Camp
Our mobile tented camp follows the never-ending circle of life in the Serengeti. Throughout the year we choose the most spectacular spots inside the park, as close as possible to the large, migrating herds of over 2 million wild animals. Each tent is equipped with twin beds, bedside tables, luggage racks and, of course, your own toilet and shower as well as a small terrace.


 

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is an impressive volcanic caldera teeming with wildlife at the edge of the Serengeti. A year-round water supply supports over 30,000 animals including zebra, buffalo, wildebeest, eland, and Grant and Thomson's gazelles. A great number of herbivores are hunted by lions, hyenas, jackals and cheetahs - this crater has the highest density of predators in Africa!
  Endoro Lodge
Endoro Lodge borders the forest of Ngorongoro Conservation Area and is an ideal midpoint between Arusha and the Serengeti. The lodge’s chalets are comfortably furnished with lovely views across the garden to the forest. For those wishing to stretch their legs after a long drive, the Endoro River Nature Trails offers suitable possibilities for hiking, bird watching and game viewing.


 

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park offers a truly spectacular African landscape. The park is composed of granitic ridges, a meandering river valley and swamps. Huge baobab trees are found throughout the park dominating this unique scenery. The vegetation is a mix of Acacia woodland and seasonally flooded grassland. Elephants, a wide range of antilopes, zebras and many other mammals can be seen here and, recently, packs of wild dogs have been occasionally spotted lying in the shade of a baobab tree.
  Tarangire View Camp
Our new intimate tented camp, inside the boundaries of Tarangire National Park, lies peacefully along a seasonal river bank in the shade of large acacia and sausage trees. Housing only six spacious and comfortable tents, our camp represents the ultimate "African bush feeling". It offers privacy and a personalised service while spending unforgettable nights in one of Tanzania's most scenically beautiful national parks.


 

Zanzibar

The exotic island of Zanzibar is located in the Indian Ocean approximately 40 km east of mainland Tanzania. Its cultural heritage, magnificent palace ruins, idyllic beaches and the scent of tropical spices make the island a very special holiday destination. The endless sandy beaches along the east coast are an ideal spot to relax and unwind.
  Bahari View Lodge
In the shade of coconut palms, you will find the charming bungalows of Bahari View Lodge. Bahari means “Ocean” in Kiswahili, the local language. The fringing coral reefs protect the island's sandy beaches from the waters of the Indian Ocean. The restaurant and beach bar are situated in a shady, tropical garden and, with the rooms just a few steps away from the ocean, what better way to enjoy a relaxing holiday!
