This itinerary is built using premium lodging and has a light to moderate activity level. Meals can range from catered picnic lunches on game drive days to gourmet dinners. For all ages.


All Family Summer Travel Camps are led by professional educators and local guides.


Day 1 (does not include travel time):

International flight to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. Transfer to Arusha and check into a coffee plantation hotel.

Day 2, 3:

Our safari begins early morning. We trek to Tarangire National Park. In addition to the largest concentration of elephants in the country, the park hosts a large variety of other amazing animals. We’ll visit a Masai Village and learn about their culture. 

Day 4, 5, 6, 7: 

After an early breakfast, we head toward the famous Serengeti National Park, a name that means “endless plains.” See the place where Dr. Leakey discovered Australopithecus afarensis. Flexible days in the Serengeti all us to schedule game drives and outings as we’d like, based on our expert guide recommendations.

Transfer to the northern Serengeti to witness the Great Migration. This is where the famous Mara River crossing occurs.

After an early morning game drive, head to the Ngorongoro Crater today. This natural wonder is home to nearly every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa, including the Black Rhino.
