Witness the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle – up close!

The seemingly endless plains of the Serengeti  host one of the world’s greatest displays of animal migration. Nothing can prepare you for the sheer number of animals which descend upon the area in a pilgrimage in search of food and water. Up to 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra perform this large-scale migration. Not surprisingly, there are large numbers of predators ready to contribute to the circle of life.

Maasai pastoralists also live in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, tending their herds of cattle, sheep and goats. There is fossil evidence to suggest this area has been occupied by homids for at least 3 million years.


Our Tanzania safari combines four of Tanzania’s prime National Parks and Game Reserves and include:

  • Lake Manyara – a birding paradise (with more than 380 species), and the forests are one of the best places to see leopards. Lions hunt on the grassy shores of the lake, and are known for their unusual habit of climbing trees.
  • Serengeti National Park – famous for its vast migratory herds of animals. Huge herds of wildebeest, zebra and antelope dominate the park during the Serengeti Migration. This migration means the Serengeti is one of best parks in Africa to see lion, leopard, cheetah and other predators hunting prey.
  • The world-famous Ngorongoro Crater, the largest intact, unflooded caldera in the world, Ngorongoro is a haven for one of the largest permanent concentrations of large mammals in Africa. Lion and hyena are plentiful.
  • Tarangire National Park is home to large herds of elephant and has spectacularly scenic baobab woodland. A seasonal migration of wildlife is concentrated here in winter.
  • Accommodation varies from large lodges to small fixed tented camps and mobile tented safaris. Walking safaris as well as game drives in open vehicles and night drives are offered.

Spend time in luxurious and private tented camps; the most exclusive way of getting close to the true essence of safari.


  • DAY 1:

    Arrive Kilimanjaro International Airport in Arusha, where you will be met and transferred to your luxury lodge, situated on a coffee farm , with all round splendid views of Mount Meru.

    Overnight in Arusha at a luxury lodge in tropical gardens, a large solar-heated pool for some lazy hours in the afternoon.

  • DAY 2-3:

    Drive south-west to Tarangire National Park with a picnic lunch. This is home to a wide variety of animals, especially elephant. Your tented camp is ideally located to see large concentrations of elephants, big cats and other animals around the stunning Silale swamps and in the trademark Baobab country of Tarangire National Park. There are game drives each day as well as the chance to do game-walks with your professional guide.

    Overnight at a luxury tented camp with en-suite facilities tents which are spacious and beautifully appointed with both indoor and outdoor showers, allowing for a shower under the African stars.

  • DAY 4:

    Drive to the magical Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera with an area of 259 square kilometers. It is famed for its huge variety of game and birds and is often referred to as a microcosm of Africa. Ngorongoro Crater has dramatic weather changes and varied terrains consisting of forest, grasslands and both freshwater and soda lakes. Spend the day exploring the Ngorongoro Conservation Area

    Overnight at a luxury lodge located on the outskirts of Karatu, on the lower slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater. Lush gardens and an authentic farmhouse, gently refurbished to offer a rustic, luxurious and welcoming sanctuary. Sit on your veranda overlooking the centuries-old Great Rift Valley and Ngorongoro Forest.

  • DAY 5:

    Often described as the ‘Eighth’ Wonder of the World, the Ngorongoro Crater is so spectacular that you may not know where to look first. Descend steadily down the steep 610 meter sides of the crater from the lodge which is perched on the crater rim. Game viewing in the crater is almost guaranteed to turn up four of the Big Five, as well as zebra, gazelle, warthog and a rich variety of birds, all viewed against the backdrop of the thickly forested crater walls.

    Overnight at the same luxury lodge as on day 4.

  • DAY 6-8:

    We drive to Olduvai Gorge where Mary Leakey made her groundbreaking discovery of a hominid (human-like) skull dating back 1.8 million years. Often referred to as the ‘cradle of mankind’, it is not hard to imagine our early ancestors beginning our history in this place. We will spend a few fascinating hours here getting an understanding of this relevance of these discoveries

    You’ll also spend time in a genuine Maasai village where we’ll be able to interact with the tribes-people, talk to the kids and generally experience some of the nuances of the nomadic Maasai way of life.

    Our base is in the central Serengeti; 14 763 square kilometers in extent, it reaches up to the Kenyan border and is among the finest in Africa. Thirty five species of plains dwelling animals reside here, including wildebeest and zebra, which feature in the spectacular Serengeti migration. The huge numbers of migratory animals is a magnificent sight to behold. Of course, these numbers attract the predators, and lion and cheetah sightings at this time can be outstanding.

    There are also large populations of birds, reptiles and amphibians, many endemic to this area alone.

    We’ll take a full day game drive on the Serengeti plains.

    Overnight in a luxury private mobile Tented Camp. Each tent features a king size bed, en suite bathroom and private veranda with a stunning view over the Serengeti. Under canvas and intimate, this intimate camp captures the essence of classic mobile tented safaris, reminiscent of safaris in the old days.

  • DAY 9-10:

    Drive in a northerly direction to the Mara River, in the unspoiled and undiscovered northern part of the Serengeti National Park, one of Tanzania’s best-kept secrets. The camp is ideally located to witness the world famous river crossing of the Great Migration. The Mara River area hosts many resident hippo, crocs, cats, elephants, resident zebra and wildebeest, herds of topi and less known animals such as the bat eared fox.

    Our camp is currently the only (semi) permanent establishment in a wide area and due to the limited traffic off-road game-driving you will see game within a close proximity to the camp. Due to the exclusive location on the Mara River, game drives and walking safaris from Sayari Camp are unlike anything else in the Serengeti. Enjoy two days of game drives and walking safaris in this untouched wilderness.

    Each of the guest tents boasts its own private veranda equipped with comfortable chairs and couches with fantastic vistas over the Serengeti landscape. Decorated with beautiful traditional cloths and contemporary furniture, the tents all have comfortable king-size beds, spacious en-suite bathrooms with a double sink, shower and ceramic flush toilet – all environmentally friendly.

    Overnight at luxury tented camp

  • DAY 11:

    After breakfast, drive to the Kleins Airstrip for a scheduled flight to Arusha and your homeward flight.

The order of this itinerary may vary due to annual rains and the migration.
