Serengeti, Tailored Exactly For You
Each tailor—made activity with your Safari Leader celebrates the freedom to spend unfiltered time in wide-open spaces and while no two game viewing are ever the same, this custom safari gives you the chance to create your own schedule rather than following a set itinerary.
Every day your Safari Leader describes various activities and experiences and your local safari guide is on standby. Then it’s your choice... Such decisions!
Not to Be Missed

Explore the Serengeti with morning game viewing and/ or afternoon viewing... both are timed to offer the very best chance of spotting “The Big Five.”
Swimming Pool Overlooking the Endless Plains

Spa Treatment at the Balcony of Your Tent.
After a short tiresome and a little bit dusty drive on the Serengeti rough roads, immerse yourself in one of our soothing spa treatments by a professional masseuse. She will give you enough time to express your feelings and choose the type of massage that will take your breath away.
Spend a Day Exploring Lake Victoria.
Enjoy a motorboat cruise on Lake Victoria, where you will see fishermen pulling in their nets and men and women working on their fields or washing their laundry. While cruising, you can bird watch, take photos and visit with villagers.
The lake features over 240 species of bush, swamp, and water birds. Enjoy a guided morning walk (07.00) or a late afternoon walk (16.30) to see these indigenous birds in their natural habitat.
Bush Breakfast Dining Experience

Proceed with Game viewing followed by a glass of chilled sparkling wine and fresh-pressed orange juice. Then, sit down to enjoy a uniquely scenic, full English breakfast.
Hot—Air Balloon Safari
What better way to take in the stunning Serengeti landscape than from the air..? A sunrise hot—air balloon flight over the Serengeti is sure to be one of the highlights of your safari. Flights last approximately one hour and are followed by a Champagne bush breakfast.
