PCR Testing – we can’t take the test for you, but we’ve got the where and how covered!

Most countries and airlines require proof of a negative Covid PCR test. As your safari experts, we know their requirements and will take care of scheduling tests during your travels in Tanzania, so that it’s conveniently planned into your itinerary and taking into consideration that results take between 24-72 hours. Tests cost between $100 and $330 per person, per test including transport to the testing facility. Your Africa Specialist will give you more information as it relates to your itinerary.

Day 1 - Kilimanjaro Airport - Arusha

A Lion World Travel representative will meet you on arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport and transfer to you to Arusha where you can relax after your long journey.

Arusha Serena Hotel, Resort & Spa offers a haven of calm and serenity just outside the hustle and bustle of Arusha. Situated in the depths of a tree-shaded coffee plantation, cooled by mountain streams and sitting on the shores of an idyllic wooded lake, Arusha Serena Hotel, Resort & Spa, offers panoramic views over Lake Duluti. The ethnically styled ‘Rondavel’ village-cluster rooms are furnished in traditional safari style.

Day 2 - Arusha - Ngorongoro

After breakfast drive to the Ngorongoro Crater where you will arrive in time for Lunch at your  Lodge.  Often described as one of the great natural wonders of the world, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area became an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. It features the Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest unbroken volcanic caldera with sides so steep that it has become a natural enclosure for a very wide variety of wildlife, including most of the species found in East Africa.

The afternoon is at leisure or you may choose an optional activity.

Perched on the jagged rim of the crater, camouflaged in river-stone and cloaked in indigenous creepers, Ngorongoro Serena Lodge hugs the crater rim, linked by rope-lashed timber walkways that skirt the roots of ancient, liana-hung trees. Lit by flaming wall-lanterns, clad in gigantic volcanic boulders and decorated by the iron spears, bright-beaded robes and intricately carved artefacts of the Maasai, the Lodge is a unique blend of world-class luxury and ethnic style.

Speak to an Expert


From the moment of first contact with Samuel (could not have been more helpful guiding us through the process on arrival) in Kilimanjaro Airport through all the hotels, parks, and back to Kilimanjaro, we were treated warmly and professionally. Ally was great at walking us through the plans and introducing us to Amani Kipinga our driver guide for our entire journey.

Would recommend them without reservation to others. Anything else anyone might wonder or worry about such as vehicle condition, cleanliness, safety, or any personal needs will be happy to hear that EVERYTHING was thought of and treated superbly.

So, all in all, we loved our Tanzania safari very much and could not be happier with the service provided by Lion World Travel.
