7 Days Exclusive Luxury Safari to Tanzania

Luxury Safari



This safari highlights the best game-viewing opportunities in Northern Tanzania. Accommodations are in luxury camps and lodges that offer a unique atmosphere and excellent food. Guests taking this tour will be able to explore five of our most famous national parks of the northern circuit of Tanzania, and mix them with culture and walking safari in the heart of Serengeti national park. From our experience, this tour will be slow with no rush, with a great opportunity of staying on sighting long looking for action. And most of the camps are located very close to the game viewing areas and walking safari.

This entire day is set aside for game drives upon the Serengeti. The Serengeti, the habitat of an abundance of wildlife such as impala, buffalo, crocodile, and hippo, is more well-known for its great migrating herds of zebra, elands, and wildebeest. The animals’ trek is determined by the rainfall and varies from year to year. In November and December, the animals move from the northern region, dominated by woodlands and hills, to the grassy plains of the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June, they return to the central part of the park. Apart from the migrating herds, we may have the opportunity to see the resident predators, leopard, cheetah, hyaena, jackals, and lion, fulfilling their role in the circle of life. Nothing is quite so essentially ‘Safari’ as the traditional ‘bush sundowner,’ especially when it’s enlivened by the presence of your guide.

Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Accommodation: Serengeti Tortilis tented camp / Serengeti heritage tented camp

The animals roam freely through the unfenced reserves offering us an uninterrupted game-viewing experience.
Arriving at the edge of the crater we have our first glimpse of what awaits us the following day – glistening streams, open grassland, and a myriad number of animals.
