Day 1 Serengeti National Park
Upon your arrival in the Serengeti National Park, either by light aircraft or safari vehicle, you will be warmly welcomed by your safari guide. The Serengeti National Park, probably best known for one of the world’s most spectacular wildlife events – the great migration, has an amazing biodiversity of flora and fauna which you will explore extensively in the coming days. Your guide will take you to the Mobile Explorer Camp, which has been set-up especially for you on a carefully chosen private campsite in the national park. Here, far away from the hustle and bustle you will meet the rest of your camp crew and your safari chef will serve you a delicious hot lunch. In the afternoon, you will go on your first game drive in the park before you return to the Mobile Explorer Camp for sundowners followed by another freshly prepared meal. Later you will retreat to your tent where you will spend the night on comfortable beds.
Day 2 & 3 Serengeti National Park
The next two days are all in the name of game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. During your game drives you will witness the different landscapes that are home to the Serengeti and that include grassland plains, savannah, woodlands and riverine forests. But most importantly you will get to observe the Serengeti’s resident game. Animals that can often be spotted during game drives include Thomson and Grants gazelles, eland, hyenas, baboons, impalas, giraffes and of course the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. The regions that you will visit during your time here will depend on what you are most interested in seeing but also on where the migrating herds are located. As this nature spectacle is completely dependent on the yearly rainfalls, the location of the animals may vary from year to year. But your safari guide will make it his priority to create a wonderful and unforgettable experience. The course of the day is also flexible and will be tailored to suit your needs. Breakfast and lunch can be enjoyed in camp or en-route while dinner will be served at the camp. The evenings will be spent around the campfire under the star-studded sky before the days come to an end. You will spend two nights at the Mobile Explorer Camp in the middle of the Serengeti National Park.

- This is a private tour and hence there won’t be anyone else except yourself and the people you chose to travel with in your group. Please note that we can take a maximum of 10 people on this safari.
- There is no set age limit, however, we discourage parents with children under the age of 10 to join this safari due to the fact that nights are spent in the remote and unfenced wilderness areas of the national park. In addition to that each tent can only accommodate 2 people and should parents travel with children, they would have to split up should they not want their kids to sleep in their own tent. If parents however insist on bringing their child / children, they are welcome to do so but must keep in mind that the sole responsibility for the kids lies with them at all time.
- You will spend the nights in our Mobile Explorer Camp in the remote areas of the Serengeti National Park. Our spacious tents (3x3m surface area, 2,1m high) are equipped with real beds, side tables and battery-operated lamps and come with a private toilet and bucket-shower tent.
- We only use specially converted 4×4 safari vehicles (i.e. Toyota Landcruiser) that are able to take on the harsh Tanzanian road conditions. Each guest will enjoy a window seat and during game drives the roof will open, ensuring unspoilt views.
- Meals are included as stated in the itinerary and mineral water is also supplied during the safari. All other drinks such as soft drinks and alcoholic beverages are excluded and need to be settled by yourself.
- Breakfast and dinner are served in a mess tent. For breakfast, eggs, sausages or bacon, toast and jam are usually served, whereas a three course menu is typically prepared for dinner. Lunch is mostly enjoyed en-route in form of pre-packed lunch (lunch-box) consisting of sandwiches, boiled eggs and fruits or grilled chicken thighs.

- Although most nationalities can obtain a visa upon arrival in Tanzania, it is the sole responsibility of every traveller to be in possession of all required documents. We therefore strongly suggest that you contact your respective embassy for the latest visa regulations.
- Officially no vaccinations are required but seeing that Tanzania is located in a yellow fever region, we suggest getting a yellow fever vaccination for your own piece of mind.
- Despite the fact that Tanzania does not require you to be vaccinated against Tetanus, Diphtheria, Polio or Hepatitis A&B, we would strongly advise to have those shots up to date.
- Malaria is also a concern and we therefore recommend that some precautionary measures are taken. For more detailed information on prophylaxes and the effects and possible side effects, please contact your doctor or travel clinic.
