Flufftail safari: In full
This holiday itinerary uses a combination of good value permanent camps and two fantastic luxury semi-permanent camps as bases to explore famous areas of the northern circuit; travelling with your own knowledgeable superior guide in a private 4WD safari vehicle is also best way to make the most of Lake Manyara National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and central Serengeti National Park; then go on safari with the excellent guides based at the more remote Sayari Mara Camp.
Depart London Heathrow on your scheduled overnight flight with Kenya Airways
to Nairobi in Kenya.
2 nights at Lemala Ngorongoro (full board & activities) | Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
Arriving early in the morning it's a simple matter to connect with your onward flight to Kilimanjaro Airport in Arusha. Here you will be met by you own private superior guide
and 4WD safari vehicle. Together you'll leave the bustling town or Arusha behind and drive through rural Tanzania on your way to Lemala Ngorongoro Crater. Spend your full days based here exploring the beautiful Ngorongoro Crater
which has extraordinary numbers of game and spectacular scenery. On your second day, head to the lesser known Empakaai Crater
. This excursion is usually bypassed by most visitors to northern Tanzania which makes it a quiet, off-beat and rewarding day trip.
3 nights at Dunia Camp (full board & activities) | Serengeti Migration Area, Tanzania
Leave Lemala Camp and drive around the Ngorongoro Crater rim before descending onto communal lands where wildlife resides alongside Maasai tribespeople Crossing into Serengeti National Park later in the day your game viewing begins as you make your way towards Dunia Camp. You might head out on an all day safari – exploring far from camp and stopping when you feel like it for a picnic lunch. Or enjoy a more leisurely day, starting with a morning drive, taking time to relax in camp then heading out again in the late afternoon.
4 nights at Sayari Camp (full board & activities) | Serengeti Migration Area, Tanzania
Departing early, drive to the northern Serengeti
, taking your time to enjoy any wildlife sightings along the way. Few vehicles venture this far north, so you can usually enjoy having this wilderness area pretty much all to yourselves. In August, the great migration
usually passes through this area so, during this time, you'll pass large grazing herds on your way to Sayari Mara Camp. The camp is one of the most northerly camps in the Serengeti and for many, its remoteness is its real attraction. This luxurious tented camp is only a short game drive away from the Mara River
After bidding farewell to Sayari Mara Camp you will be driven to a nearby airstrip to catch a light aircraft flight back to Arusha. From here, either continue on to one of our beach add-on trips
, Ras Kutani
or the Mafia Archipelago
, or catch your scheduled flight back to Nairobi and on to the UK with Kenya Airways
Arrive back in London early in the morning after an amazing safari including some of northern Tanzania's famous wildlife spectacles and some of the country's less visited attractions.
