Barbet Fly-in Safari

Barbet Safari: In full

This Tanzania fly-in safari holiday utilises some great authentic and well-priced safari camps, all in brilliant locations in Tanzania. Explore the wildlife-filled Ngorongoro Crater; and marvel at the vast open grasslands of the Serengeti National Park, perhaps just in time to witness the great migration.

This is a classic route for a safari focussing on the highlights of northern Tanzania's spectacular Ngorongoro Crater and seeing the Serengeti in depth from two different locations.


Days 1-2

2 nights at Lemala Ngorongoro (full board & activities) | Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

Lemala Camp is situated on the eastern side of the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania ...Arriving early in Nairobi, you connect for a shorter flight to Kilimanjaro Airport near Arusha. You will connect onto a light aircraft flight to Lake Manyara Airstrip which serves the Ngorongoro Crater. After enjoying the spectacular Crater views as you drive around the rim, you'll arrive at Lemala Ngorongoro.

The location of Lemala Ngorongoro, right beside the descent road, is perfect as you can be one of the first people on the crater floor the following morning - where you can enjoy a day wildlife viewing in one of the world's best wildlife reserves. Look out for black rhino, lion, buffalo and hyena. The animals are used to safari vehicles which allow you photo opportunities at close range. In the afternoon, you may choose to enjoy a forest walk around the Crater rim.
