Longclaw Fly-in Safari

Longclaw safari: In full

This fantastic fly-in holiday is a concentrated, in-depth safari experience. You will visit the wild southern region of Tarangire National Park, as well as two very different parts of the great Serengeti: the vast short grass plains of the south and the gentle rolling country of the quiet and wild north – it's the ideal trip to experience the best of northern Tanzania's parks, whilst avoiding most of the crowds.


Days 1-2

2 nights at Oliver's Camp (full board & activities) | Tarangire National Park, Tanzania

Oliver's has 10 tented chalets...Start your trip in Kilimanjaro, where your guide will meet and drive you through Arusha and into the bush. Enjoy the classic East African scenery on your way to Tarangire, then once inside start watching out for some of the park's varied wildlife. Staying deep in the remote south of the park, you spend 2 nights exploring on foot and in open 4WD vehicles, accompanied by first-rate guides from your base at Oliver's Camp. You will find good game here, especially during the dry season when animals are attracted to the nearby marshes.

Days 3-4

2 nights at Namiri Plains Camp (full board & activities) | Serengeti Migration Area, Tanzania

Namiri Plains is in the quiet eastern Serengeti, surrounded by game.After breakfast, catch a light aircraft into the central Serengeti. Meet with the camps own private open-topped 4x4 vehicle and superior guide, and explore the surrounding areas of the Serengeti. Previously this region had exclusively been used for cheetah conservation and the number of big cats found here - especially lion prides and cheetahs - is astonishing. There is great game in this area throughout the whole year. You meander back to camp, perhaps watching game on the way, before arriving for a lovely lunch and 2 night stay at Namiri Plains Camp.

Days 5-7

3 nights at Kimondo Camp (full board & activities) | Serengeti Migration Area, Tanzania

Kimondo is a good quality tented camp which moves to follow the migration.After your stay in the central Serengeti, you will then move to your next stop – Kimondo Camp. A stunning tented camp located in the Lamai Wedge, a small pocket of the Serengeti north of the Mara River and south of the border with Kenya. This part of the Serengeti is a great place to witness the great migration between the months of July to October: it's within the Serengeti National Park and is one of the more remote camps in this park. Then from mid Nov - mid March it moves down to the south east of the Kusini area. There are only a few other camps around here, so it's a quieter area than the Ndutu area to see the migration during this time.

Day 8

After your last morning on safari, fly to Kilimanjaro Airport and then either continue onto one of our beach holiday add-ons (see 'prices &details' for links), or connect with your own international flight arrangements.
