Private African Safari Tours
A trip to Africa wouldn't be complete without a visit to our national parks to see landscapes, plants, and animals seen nowhere else. Depending on your schedule and preferences, we will create a safari tour customized for you and your party.
African safari can easily be made the focus of your trip, or we can create an adventure that includes safari, mountain treks, cultural experiences, and a beach vacation. Contact us to discuss your adventure, or learn more about the possibilities below.
Let's discover African wildlife together!
ARUSHA NATIONAL PARK (DAY TRIP)
The oft-overlooked Arusha National Park offers some of the most breathtaking scenery in Northern Tanzania. Arusha National Park includes Mount Meru, and game highlights include Giraffe, Cape Buffalo, Elephant, Zebra, Flamingo and Hippo. Several primate species including Black and White Colobus Monkey, Syke’s/Blue Monkey and Vervet Monkey thrive in the tropical forests.
The patient ornithologist will be rewarded with opportunities to spot elusive forest birds such as Hartlaub’s Turaco. Bush walks and canoe Safaris are permitted in Arusha National Park at the Momella Lakes.
SAFARI TO SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
& NGORONGORO CRATER
Serengeti: the place where the land moves on forever (endless plains)
Serengeti National Park, a vast and beautiful expanse of 14,763 square kilometers, is perhaps the world’s most famous Wildlife sanctuary. A World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve, the Serengeti supports the largest concentration of plains game in the World. In addition to watching the incredible Migration of almost 2 million wildebeest and zebra that takes place each year from December to August, many people visit the Serengeti to search for big cats and it’s also a place where one can see the Big Five (Elephant, Rhinoceros, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard).
The park draws 90,000 visitors annually, all hoping to view the long files of wildebeest and the predators that stalk them. Given the important biological value of the park, several conservation and research efforts are underway in the Serengeti. The Tanzania National Park Association and the Frankfurt Zoological Society manage the park jointly.
SAFARI TO NGORONGORO CRATER
Often called the eighth wonder of the world, Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken caldera in the World, and is one of the only places in Africa you can view every member of the “big five” (Rhinoceros, Elephant, Lion, Buffalo and Leopard) on a single game drive.
Unique to Ngorongoro, indigenous tribes are permitted to live in the conservation area and local Maasai graze their livestock on the crater floor in harmony with nearby herds of buffalo and wildebeest. Walking is permitted in Ngorongoro Conservation Area but not on the Crater floor.
SAFARI TO LAKE NATRON, SERENGETI, AND NGORONGORO
Lake Natron is off the beaten track, with attractions including a river walk with two waterfalls, a hike across a soda lake with Flamingos, and a trek up Ol Doinyo Lengai, an active volcano.
Ol Doinyo Lengai is located in the heart of the Great Rift Valley and has erupted at least a dozen times over the last century. A challenging hike to the Top of the “Mountain of God” offers an opportunity to view molten lava. Visitors to Lake Natron can also interact with the local Maasai community.
SAFARI TO SERENGETI, NGORONGORO AND LAKE EYASI
Lake Eyasi is a mildly alkaline lake about 50 km in length. It takes a little over an hour to get there from Ngorongoro Crater, and is mostly visited as a cultural tour to see the Hadzabe and Datoga Tribes.
The highlight of a visit to Lake Eyasi is an early morning hunt with the Hadzabe. One of two remaining hunter-gatherer tribes in Tanzania, the Hadzabe speak a unique click language. Their favourate pray is Baboon, though it’s also difficult to find.
