    10 Nights Adventure Tanzania

    This itinerary is designed for the more adventurous traveller who is willing to forgo the more traditional definition of luxury by staying in lighter, mobile style safari camps. The itinerary still highlights iconic wildlife areas around The Great Rift Valley, Lake Manyara and the Serengeti and allows more physical activity by including more walking and trekking. It includes the luxury of small, intimate camps, the luxury of exploring on your feet, walking amongst wildlife and away from the main tourist areas, whilst taking in the quintessential landscapes and views of East Africa.

  • 9 Nights Premier Tanzania- Shoulder Season
    9 Nights Premier Tanzania- Shoulder Season

    Tanzania is a wonderful safari destination in any month of the year and this safari attempts to take travellers away from the most travelled routes in the national parks and into the private conservancies, out of the peak holiday periods of mid northern hemisphere summer and Christmas and New Year. Not only are rates attractive during this time at the very best lodges that Tanzania has to offer, but those lodges are situated in well managed, private conservancies. The wildlife is still diverse and bountiful and given the intimacy of the private conservancies compared to the national parks. This safari has diversity of habitat leading to great sightings of large mammals, a huge range of bird species but also diversity of cultural experiences from hunter gatherer tribes to the Maasai and Datoga cattle herders.
