Wagtail Fly-in Safari

Wagtail Safari: In full

This high quality itinerary explores two different areas of the Serengeti ecosystem, in both the adjoining private Grumeti Reserve and then the quietest part of the northern Serengeti, the Lamai Wedge. The two camps featured are the ultimate in contemporary safari luxury and would be ideal for those wanting an incredibly special trip.

If you are hoping to catch the great migration in the Serengeti, then ideal timing for this trip would be July to October when the migration will typically be up in northern Serengeti, crossing back and forth over the Mara River.

After your safari, if you want to relax on the beach, then add one of our beach add-on trips to Zanzibar, Pemba, Ras Kutani or the Mafia Archipelago, to your itinerary.


Days 1-3

3 nights at Faru Faru Lodge (full board & activities) | Serengeti Migration Area, Tanzania

The exclusive Faru Faru Camp, in the Grumeti Reserve, overlooks the Serengeti plains.Connect straight onto a light aircraft flight from Kilimanjaro and head into the private Singita Grumeti Reserve, where you will be met at the airstrip by a guide. From here you can enjoy a game drive en route to your lodge - Faru Faru. It is an intimate and stylish property, offering a luxurious stay for the 3 nights in the reserve.

As there are only a handful of other camps in the area, all owned by Singita, this is one of the few places in the Serengeti ecosystem where guests can enjoy exclusive game viewing and other activities.

Days 4-6

3 nights at Singita Mara River Tented Camp (full board & activities) | Serengeti Migration Area, Tanzania

Mara Singita is set in the beautiful Lamai triangle...After another light aircraft flight, you will arrive in the northern Serengeti to the north of the Mara River, in the Lamai Wedge. Singita Mara River Tented Camp is one of only a few permanent camps in this part of the park so you have the opportunity to avoid the majority of the crowds during the peak season. It is similarly luxurious, although smaller, and is in a fabulous location right on the banks of the Mara River.

The area has great game all year round but if you are hoping to witness the great migration, this camp is particularly good from July to September.

After the 3 night stay here, head back to Kilimanjaro to connect on to your international flight home.

Day 7

After an early morning game-drive and delicious breakfast, transfer via a light aircraft back to Kilimanjaro Airport. Either continue onto one of our beach add-on trips to Zanzibar, or connect with your evening Kenya Airways flight to London, via Nairobi.
