This safari is a delightful adventurous safari for our guests with limited time in Dar es Salaam, Arusha, or Mwanza city yet who desire an in—depth safari experience. Devoted exclusively to the Serengeti; in 3 days we touch upon nearly all of the region’s highlights, experiencing extraordinary wildlife throughout.
...wilderness gave us knowledge. Wilderness made us human. We came from here. Perhaps that is why so many of us feel a strong bond to this land called Serengeti; it is the land of our youth.

Get transferred to Serengeti National Park either by air or road (depending on your preference). And, your first game drive begins the moment you arrive at the park...
Check-in at your preferred accommodation, leisurely lunch is followed by time acclimatizing, gazing around yourself, and realizing you’re in the middle of nowhere. Then, an afternoon game drive gives you the chance to explore the local wildlife and enjoy a drink against the setting golden sun...
Today you have a full day to witness what the Serengeti has to offer you. Every minute is always an unwritten drama, featuring anything from a lion kill to an amorous liaison.
You may spot all of the big five as well as the little 5 [ask your safari guide!]. Whatever storylines the day holds, your local safari guide will apply his wildlife knowledge, tracking abilities, and incredible eyesight to reveal the hidden secrets of the Serengeti to you.
Enjoy Farewell Breakfast
It's said that every nice thing has to end – and that leaving is such sweet sorrow. However, one last exploration is left: a short game viewing on your way back.
This is your last chance to find something special in the Serengeti, so your safari guide will be as keen as you are to tick out your must-see.
Gratuities included for meals and porterage even substantial ones to your Safari Guide and Safari Leader from beginning to end of your safari and you won’t be “nickel and dimed” for WIFI, tips at the lodges, drinks, and laundry; all that’s left for you to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy...
From the moment that we pick you up until the moment of your reluctant departure, all meals and beverages (including soft drinks, house wines, well spirits, and local beers) are provided as part of our all-inclusive safari cost—an extravagant saving and an enormous convenience.
The quality of the cuisine in lodges and camps is also superb. Meats, vegetables, and fruit arrive daily, fresh from the rich farmlands in Mwanza or Arusha. Early riser’s coffee is served before the sunrise game drive, followed by abundant breakfast buffets, luncheons on the veranda, and a formal afternoon tea. Dinners are fashionably late following the return of the afternoon game drive, allowing time for relaxation and “sundowners” in the lounge or around the campfire.
Once a full payment or a 30% deposit has been made for this safari your trip will depart as scheduled, we will never cancel for any reason other than Force Majeure. Your departure is guaranteed 100% No surcharge or supplemental cost is ever imposed.
