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.
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.
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. 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 nights stay at Dunia Camp.
After your stay in the central Serengeti, you will then move to your next stop – Sayari Camp. A stunning tented camp in the far north of the park by the Kenya border. During the months of July through to October this area is teeming with the herds of the migration and its possible to witness electric crossings of the Mara River. For the rest of the year this area is delightfully empty of visitors, making it one the the last remaining places to be able to say they can offer a real wilderness experience in one of Africa’s most heavily visited parks. At any time of the year, albeit for different reasons, Sayari offers a magical safari experience.
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.
