From the snowy peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro, to the dusty plains of the Serengeti National Park, the awe-inspiring beauty of the Ngorongoro Crater and the dazzling azure bays off the island of Zanzibar, where you will find romantic boutique hotel Zanzi Resort, Tanzania’s natural assets are hard to beat. This East African country is also home to some of the finest boutique hotels and luxury safari camps in the region so you will be sure to find an exquisite place to rest your head after a day of exhilarating game viewing or restful beach lounging. If you are looking for a full-on safari experience with fantastic game viewing and luxury accommodation, then the Northern Safari Circuit is the place to go. The gateway to the region is the town of Arusha, known as Tanzania's safari capital. Here you have a good selection of boutique and luxury lodges, including the Arusha Coffee lodge set in emerald-green coffee plantations at the foot of mount Meru, Machweo Retreat, which offers panoramic views over the Maasai Steppe and their sister property Onsea House, which has been nominated for the 2014 Best Safari House award, and serves top-notch cuisine from the Belgian chef owner. From Arusha town it is just a 40-minute journey to the Arusha National Park. This often overlooked gem boasts lush montane forest and is home to inquisitive blue monkeys and acrobatic black and white colobus monkeys, and the beautiful Momella lakes with their resident flamingos. Here you will find the laid-back Hatari Lodge, which overlooks the awe-inspiring Mount Kilimanjaro and is named after the John Wayne movie Hatari, which was shot in the area. 

Further south you can experience the ultimate natural hideaway in the luxury treehouses of Tarangire Treetops. Built into Marula and Baobab trees on the edge of the Tarangire National Park, this luxury lodge is on the path of the elephant migration and is the place to witness some of the largest herds in Africa. Alternatively head to the Ngorongoro conservation area with its diverse landscape of grassland, wetland, waterfalls, volcanoes and forests. Here you can base yourself in the grand surroundings of the Chic Retreat, Manor at Ngorongoro, and take a game drive to Ngorongoro crater to view cheetahs, lions, hippos and wildebeest. And of course no Tanzania safari experience would be complete without witnessing the Great Migration, listed as the 8th wonder of the world. You can’t get much closer to the action than the Serengeti Migration camp, a luxury safari camp right on the migration path of the wildebeest and zebra in the Serengeti National park. Voted by Conde Nast readers as the best safari camp in East Africa, it will provide an unforgettable experience of safari in africa.
