Tanzania is go!
The exceptional Serengeti National Park plays host to a staggering amount of wildlife year-round, and is the perfect place to make the very most of a few days on safari. The wildebeest migration brings some thrilling predator action and between July and October you can witness the great herds make their perilous crossing over the Mara River. The northern Serengeti is the perfect spot to make the most of all the action and somewhere like Lamai Serengeti is a prime spot for wildlife viewing and also with eash reach of some of the famous river crossing points.
A week in Tanzania
A short flight from Dar es Salaam lie the little visited wildlife parks of southern Tanzania. Nyerere National Park and Ruaha National Park complement each other beautifully and offer fabulous accommodation, superb guiding and a variety of activities including sleepouts, walking safaris, boat trips and vehicle based wildlife drives. The perfect combination would be three nights at Beho Beho in Nyerere National Park for the exciting wildlife viewing and boat trips along the Rufiji River followed by three nights at Ikuka Safari Camp for the panoramic wilderness views and walking safaris.
Fortnight holiday in Tanzania
For the ultimate, jam-packed adventure across one of the most complete safari destinations in Africa, we recommend starting at the Ngorongoro Crater for a day of intense wildlife viewing before retreating to one of the camps situated on the caldera rim, like The Highlands, where you can spend a peaceful day away from the crowds. Dip in to the Serengeti plains and stay at Wayo’s Walking Camp where you can discover remote areas of the park and sleep in a tent made completely out of gauze and lie in bed looking at the stars. A charter flight from the Serengeti takes you way out to the west where the wonderful Chada Katavi in Katavi National Park awaits. Couple this with the great treasure of Greystoke Mahale in the Mahale Mountains National Park where the big wildlife draw is tracking wild chimpanzees, and by the end of your holiday you will have ticked off an incredible bucket list trip.
