Impressive wildlife, unspoiled landscapes and exclusive luxury camping – an unforgettable way to experience wild Africa.
This is a unique and privileged opportunity to visit the wilds of Tanzania - a world away from the normal tourist safari circuit. Comfortable camps with superb food and service, as well as unrivalled opportunities for viewing the abundant animals and birdlife for which the area is renowned, make this a genuine once-in-a-lifetime experience.
When you first arrive you will stay on the slopes of Mount Meru. This is a stunning forested area with fine views up toward the summit of Mount Meru and across to mighty Kilimanjaro. Accompanied by your expert guide, you should also spot your first wild animals here; what a thrill to turn a corner while out walking and come face to face with a group of giraffes. Driving via Lake Manyara National Park – famed for its tree climbing lions - to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, you enjoy a full game drive in the Ngorongoro Crater which is considered to be one of the finest wildlife havens in the world. While in the Ngorongoro Highlands you will also take a day walk from your camp, meeting local Masai people for a glimpse of their traditional lifestyle and culture.
Then it’s on to the Serengeti National Park and, after some traditional game drives, you begin a three-day walking safari. This is the Serengeti as it once was - unmarred by game viewing tracks, lodges and vehicles. Under the safe and expert tutelage of your guide and park ranger you will trek through a classic African landscape of grassy plains, rocky outcrops and broad acacia trees, enjoying the rare privilege of close-up encounters with a wide variety of wildlife that is living totally undisturbed.
Throughout your trip you will stay in luxury tented accommodation carefully designed to leave the lightest footprint on the precious eco-system. You will enjoy large walk-in tents, comfortable beds, cosy quilts, hot showers, fluffy towels and delicious food. And there are comfy areas heated by wood burning stoves where you can relax with a glass of wine or beer whilst you savour the beautiful surroundings and vast African skies. This is truly a safari in style!
