With its extensive wildlife, this region offers one of the most fantastic experiences in the world, the Small Five and the famous Big Five. With it’s varied terrain and size, the safari is only one part of the Serengeti – the landscape is very stunning.

Let us guide and support you through the dramatic highlands of Tanzania to the impressive Lake Manyara National Park. The park is a grand gem, stretching for 50 000 metres along the base of the gold rusty 600 metre high Rift Valley cliff. Ernest Hemingway praised the landscape as ”the loveliest I had seen in Africa”. Our guests will be introduced to giraffes, large buffalo, wildebeest and herds of zebra that all flock on the plains of grass where the belt of acacia wood bordering to the favoured haunt of Manyara’s magnificent tusked elephants, fabulous tree climbing lions and large water birds such as pelicans, cormorants and storks. The ecologically diverse wildlife of the plains is a miraculous vista from our camp site at the Great Rift Valley’s rim.

Before moving on to the hilly countryside, we go south of the park to visit Maji Motos – algae streaked sulphur hot water springs heated up from deep within the earth. Next stop is one of the most important prehistoric and archeological sites in the world, the Olduvai Gorge. This spot was key to understanding parts of the early evolution of humanity.

Our trip continuous to the colossal Serengeti National Park, it means ”endless pain” in Maasai. The massive expanse of Lake Victoria and the eastern arm of Rift Valley surrounds this protected park creating a landscape truly astonishing to experience.

Moving forward to Ngorongoro Crater – The 8th Natural Wonder of the World and Africa’s Eden, our trip goes through the geological rarity called the Shifting Sands which is a sacred Maasain route. The crater is home for thousands of animals, creating the world’s largest wildlife zoo. A breathtaking natural wonder.

Booking Advice
It is essential that guests book as many months ahead of schedule as possible, at least 3 months, due to the limited availability of accommodation in each of the locations. Otherwise, we risk having to find accommodation not within close range and with less panoramic locations if the original localities are booked out.
