"Everything went according to schedule with not a single delay and your assistance and preparations were above expectations. We have been on safaris in both South Africa and Mozambique after having spent two years working in Africa, but Serengeti surprised us with the number of animals and in addition we had some great lion shows."

After meeting your safari guide in the morning, you hit the road in your 4×4 Toyota Land Cruiser and drive to the Tarangire National Park. Open savannah, baobab trees, seasonal swamps and the life-giving Tarangire River characterise the landscape of this beautiful national park. Animals gather at the river, as elephants, giraffes, bushbucks and hartebeests can often be seen. You might even be able to spot the fringe-eared oryx or the weird-looking gerenuk. Tarangire is also home to buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators including lions. Your safari vehicle has an open roof and is the ideal viewing platform to appreciate the nature and animals around you. In the late afternoon you will leave the park and travel to the Sangaiwe Tented Lodge, where you will spend the night. Welcome to your 6 day Tanzania safari!

Today’s journey takes you past Lake Manyara into the fertile Ngorongoro highlands. Crossing the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, you will reach the vast open plains of the Serengeti National Park in the early afternoon. The following days are set aside for exploring the famous Serengeti, home to the Big Five – elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and rhino – and many other animals. You can look forward to many new wildlife sightings during your game drives as no day on safari is the same. You spend the following three nights at the Kati Kati Tented Camps. Depending on the season, you will either stay one night in the central Serengeti and two nights in the northern Serengeti (June – October) or the southern Serengeti (January – March), or you stay all three nights in the central Serengeti (November – December & April – May).

These two days are all about the Serengeti. Together with your guide, you scout for animals in this pristine corner of the world. You are in no rush and have plenty of time to observe the park’s wildlife and learn about animal behaviour as well as their social structures. The Serengeti National Park is the third largest park in Tanzania and is stunningly beautiful. While the landscape in the south is characterised by open grassland as far as you can see, open woodlands and hills are predominant in the north and west. Together with the Masai Mara, the Serengeti is host to the Great Migration of millions of wildebeest and zebras, one of the greatest shows on earth. Your home is one of the Kati Kati Tented Camps. In order to increase your chances of witnessing the Great Migration, we choose your route and the order of camps according to your time of travel.
