About this independent tour
This safari operates on a private basis. It includes game drives and travel between destinations in a 4x4 safari vehicle.
LAKE MANYARA This small but richly populated national park’s best known inhabitants are its tree-climbing lions. A seasonal soda lake also attracts clouds of pink flamingo.
SERENGETI You’ll have two full days to explore Tanzania’s oldest national park, originally created to protect the path of the annual great migration. Seek out iconic wildlife amongst the rolling plains, spotting herds of wildebeest, leaping gazelles and prides of lion.
BUSH CAMPING Serengeti Explorer Camp is a semi-permanent camp – it moves between three exclusive locations inside the national park. Tents are fully furnished, you’ll have meals cooked by your personal camp chef, and prices include local beer, house wine and soft drinks. It’s bush camping in a way that feels a bit more adventurous but is still really comfortable.
THE MIGRATION Serengeti Explorer Camp changes its location based on the typical pattern of the annual great migration, when the herds journey around the vast Serengeti and into the Maasai Mara in search of water and fertile grass. All three locations are excellent for game viewing.
NGORONGORO A crater tour will take you 600 metres down to the floor of this beautiful volcanic crater that’s home to the Big Five, cheetah, hyena and herds of elephant. There’s good game viewing year-round, as most animals don’t leave the crater.
