On the outskirts of Arusha, hidden among one of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantations, you will find Arusha Coffee Lodge. This haven for relaxation was designed around the original early 1900s landowner’s home.
Resembling an old country farm and built in the old Cape Dutch style, The Manor at Ngorongoro is a luxurious and colonial guesthouse with magnificent views. The property is surrounded by landscaped gardens.
Located in the Southern Serengeti, Elewana Serengeti Pioneer Camp is ideally situated to offer access to the annual migration with sweeping views overlooking Moru Kopjes, Lake Magadi and the endless plains.
OROKO created the honeymoon of our dreams in South Africa. The consultation process was very laid-back and conversational. The whole process overall was really quite quick and smooth. There was no trawling through the internet for hours late at night, weighing up costs and reviews of hotels and transfer companies etc – it was all done for us based on the OROKO travel experts’ experiences – which we found to be absolutely spot on. Choosing a ‘luxury travel’ company was a little daunting: We wanted a special honeymoon without spending silly money – and OROKO worked very well with this brief. Believe me when I say our accommodation could not have been more perfect for us. It really was the holiday of our dreams.
