We spend our glorious game viewings in the most secluded part of the Serengeti and the crater floor with its high concentration of wildlife...
...there is something about safari life that makes you forget all your sorrows and feel as if you had drunk half a bottle of champagne—bubbling over with heartfelt gratitude for being alive...

Welcome to Serengeti...
Get transferred to Serengeti National Park ...your first game drive begins the moment you touch the land of the Serengeti on your way to your chosen lodge/ camp...
Check—in at the camp or lodge, 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 hour 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.
Ngorongoro Crater Game Drive
Embark on a safari of exploring the world’s largest inactive volcanic caldera, the Ngorongoro Crater.
The Ngorongoro Crater floor offers some of the best game viewing in Africa including BIG cats and the chance to spot the elusive Black Rhino.
Enjoy Farewell Breakfast
Breakfast and one last look at the lodge before we start heading to Arusha.
As you bid farewell to Ngorongoro, you know that this has been a safari to remember for the rest of your life.
Planning a safari to Tanzania with an overload of information is real stress... you simply want honest opinions and sincere recommendations that suit your needs. As a local Tanzanian, I am picky and obsessed with quality. I travel to and personally inspect every single property in our portfolio. From private villas, luxury to mid-range lodges/ tented camps, each property I recommend speaks to a unique sense of place.
Ahadi MsuyaSafari Leader
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 20% 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.
