Although the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area and Serengeti National Park offer fantastic game viewing all year round, perhaps the best time to visit is between June and November. This is the dry season and the period during which, in the Serengeti, the great migration herds have reached the northern-most point in their cycle, crossing rivers and moving northward. Similarly, Zanzibar is best visited between June and November, promising an Indian Ocean paradise with clear skies and gentle waves.

Fly from London to Kilimanjaro via Amsterdam

Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport you will be met by your driver-guide and driven approximately one hour to Arusha. You will spend the night in the spacious cottages of Legendary Lodge.
