Experience Africa at its best on this small group journey. From your luxury safari camp in the Serengeti watch the sun go down over the African plains as the wildebeest gather for their annual migration. You will have seven days to view game and experience their environments in the National Parks of Tarangire, Serengeti plains, Ngorongoro Crater and Jozoni Forest. But this trip is not just about wildlife – you’ll meet the Maasai in their traditional homes and join them at the cattle market. Meet local farmers in the vast dry savannahs, fertile highlands and tropical coastal areas. Visits to tropical spice farms, coffee plantations and dairy properties make this a unique travel experience.

What people are saying...
I had an amazing time and certainly wasn't ready for home...I've got Tanzania under my skin and need to start planning my trip back!
The accommodation was fantastic - I loved the campsites the most, but the Acacia, Plantation, and Ngare Sero lodges were all amazing. We had a very knowledgeable and experienced guide, we had a great time in our truck. There were many highlights for me: including the cheetah hunt we saw in the Serengeti, the balloon ride, experiencing three different game parks/conservation areas, visiting a coffee plantation and small dairy farm with a vet; and visiting the hospital and community development projects It was a very well planned itinerary e.g. just when we needed to stop travelling we had a three night stay, and the balance between safari, projects, Zanzibar Stone Town and the beach resort is spot on. Thanks so much, especially to Sue for sharing her time and experiences with us - this made my trip :)
The guides on our safari were excellent, their knowledge was outstanding! We would certainly highly recommend the trip to anyone considering travel to Africa!
