If you hear “safari” and think “wildlife,” this trip was made for you. Designed to maximize wildlife-viewing opportunities, this all-camping safari will bring you up close and personal with creatures big and small, from big cats to birds.
Arrive in Arusha, Tanzania
Your guide will meet you at Kilimanjaro International Airport and escort you to tonight’s accommodations in Arusha. As local Tanzanians, our guides know the country with unrivaled familiarity, so you’ll be in good hands from the moment you land to the moment you leave.
Rivertrees Country Inn
Reminiscent of its legacy as a former German colonial farm and coffee estate, Rivertrees Country Inn blends simple elegance and modern convenience. Wake up in your farmhouse-style room to the sound of the rushing Usa River, and enjoy a hearty breakfast in an open-air, thatched-roof dining area.
Tarangire National Park
Head off for Tarangire National Park, where ancient baobab trees tower over some of the largest herds of elephants in all of Africa. Keep a lookout for the hundreds of bird species Tarangire is known for—and dramatic interactions between predator and prey at the park’s watering holes.
An indulgent touch awaits you at your camp in Tarangire. Conveniences like solar lighting and en-suite bathrooms with hot showers add domestic comforts to your safari retreat. In the evenings, enjoy dinner prepared with local ingredients as you watch the sun set behind towering baobab trees, revealing a sky overflowing with stars.
Just 10 miles wide, Ngorongoro Crater was formed from a collapsed volcano. It’s now a self-sustaining ecosystem with the densest predator population in all of Africa. Camping on the Crater’s rim offers you early morning access to its wildlife-filled floor before any other safari-goers.
Set on the eastern edge of the Ngorongoro Crater’s rim, this Nyumba offers the best possible access to the Crater—all within a remote, private setting. With temperatures as low as 40 degrees at this camp, you’ll want to remember to bundle up. But don’t worry: our chefs will treat you to a traditional Tanzanian meal to warm you up.
Serengeti National Park
Head for the iconic Serengeti, where acacia trees and granite kopjes dot the seas of waving grass. The Serengeti offers everyday opportunities to spot Tanzania’s most impressive wildlife—including big cats—and witness dramatic moments in the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebras.
These seasonal camps are strategically located across the Serengeti to place us at the center of migrating wildlife. Relax with spacious tents, comfortable beds, and en-suite bathrooms, as sounds of the surrounding wildlife fill your ears. And no need to worry—with eco-friendly features like solar lighting, your stay won't harm the landscape.
Head to Arusha, where you’ll enjoy a farewell lunch at Arusha Coffee Lodge. Relax in a day room before your flight home.
Day room at Mount Meru Hotel.
With years of experience and encyclopedic knowledge of the wildlife, culture and land, our local guides are Tanzania’s ultimate ambassadors and your perfect hosts.
No need to end your safari so soon! From gorilla trekking to scuba diving—and beyond—you can go bigger with our safari add-ons.
Enjoy a bird’s eye view, a hearty breakfast and a glass of champagne during a morning hot air balloon tour. Your entire trip will be unforgettable, but this will bring it to new heights.
