  • These camps are closed from 25th March until May.
  • The prices indicated are per person sharing; call us for single person supplements.
  • The Tanzanian Government has recently passed a ‘Finance Act’ that adds a 18% VAT charge on all ‘tourism services,’ with immediate effect from July 1st 2016. Please be aware that the prices in these Trip ideas do not include these extra VAT costs. The additional fee typically equates to about $20USD per person per day.
  • Like all our tailor-made safaris in Tanzania, this one is a sample itinerary and easy to adjust to your personal requirements. We will always organise a safari that matches what you want to do.
  • Subject to availability at the camps, you can depart on your chosen itinerary on any day of the year.
  • For something a little different, and even more adventurous, consider one or two nights of fly-camping.

Ideas for add-on trips:

Adding a few days of beach relaxation to this safari is easy; we have lots of ideas! The obvious addition would probably be a beach holiday in Zanzibar, although for a quieter island, with excellent snorkelling and diving, consider a trip to Mafia. You could continue your trip by visiting one of the stunning private islands in northern Mozambique. Be warned though, you will need a flexible budget for a beach holiday to Quirimbas Archipelago – as the experience here is very good, but also costly. At the other end of the scale, consider finishing your holiday with two or three days relaxing by the coast. Ras Kutani is only an hour's drive south of Dar.
