Tanzania Family Travel
Tanzania with the Kids
This trip is a truly unique experience in Northern Tanzania for those who seek adventure. Combining walking and traditional safari game drives, this itinerary allows families more time and access to first hand experiences rather than ‘standard’ driving only safaris. Incorporating the Great Rift Valley, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, and the world famous Serengeti, this Tanzania family travel experience is designed for families with an adventurous spirit and desire to engage in their environment. The region offers an excellent habitat variety that features rolling hills, open plains, ground water forest, massive volcanoes, culture, and the Serengeti Migration.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”

Day by Day
Drive to Legendary Coffee Lodge for a relaxing first night. The lodge provides the perfect setting to unwind after a long day of travel and great jumping off point to visit some of the local sites such as Arusha National Park at the base of Mt. Meru.
Visit a traditional Maasi Boma followed by a stroll through the local market. For lunch, head out to one of the oldest coffee estates in Arusha and on to Manyara National Park (famous for its population of flamingoes and tree-climbing lions!) for a game drive.
Take an early morning game drive through the Lake Manyara National Park to view the vast herds of elephant, thousands of flamingos, cheetah, giraffe and hippo. Tonight, head out on a nocturnal game drive to discover the nighttime movement of predators.
Head toward Ngorongoro Crater, passing picturesque villages along the Great Rift Valley. Stop in the village of Tloma for a leisurely walk to visit to the primary school and either hike or bike to our home for the next two nights.
Drive to the famed Ngorongoro Crater in search for black rhinos and massive bull elephants. Serendipitous meetings with the Maasai on foot will provide a window into a way of life that has prevailed for millennia and yet, as now, is a way of life that is ever changing.
Today, fly either up to the northern Serengeti near the Mara River or to the south for some secret calving spots only privy to B&R. Spend the next three days exploring the magnificent Serengeti!
Start your day with a dawn balloon ride over the Serengeti giving you a birds eye view over this massive ecosystem. Activities for the kids include archery, bush walks around camp, and horseback riding. Take part in as much game driving as your family likes.
Kids will have the chance today to participate in a Mini Rangers course including tracking animals, butterfly capture and release, a cosmic safari and learning bush survival techniques. Parents are free to enjoy walking safaris with a ranger or more traditional game drives.
Depart camp after breakfast for the return flight from the Serengeti back to Arusha for connecting flights home or on to Zanzibar.
Legendary Lodge, Arusha
Set in lush tropical gardens on a working coffee farm just outside Arusha, the Legendary Lodge features 12 beautiful garden cottages, each with an inspiring view of Mount Meru from its own private veranda. Designed with a unique blend of African arts and crafts, combined with old, colonial-style luxury, the cottages offer king sized beds, a separate lounge with fireplace and ensuite bathrooms with deep tubs and refreshing showers.
Lake Manyara Tree Lodge, Lake Manyara National Park
As the only lodge in Lake Manyara National Park, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is romantically exclusive with only 10 elegantly intimate stilted tree house suites.

Fireplaces fill the Farmhouse with a verandah and floral garden that invite a sweeping view of the valley below.
