They 're all secluded in stunning landscape areas that gives a more nature-oriented and genuine feel compared to the larger lodges.

This safari has a route that has been carefully selected to give a little extra. The safari begins in the stunning Lake Manyara which is the densest elephant park in Africa. After Lake Manyara awaits the rainforest in the Serengeti, Ndutu and the Ngorongoro Crater. The week is intense but we have scheduled quiet days with late morning and time to just enjoy the beautiful views, perhaps with a cold beer in hand. The route has been organised to give you a combination of nature and culture. Elements such as hiking in Ikoma adds variety so that you don't get tired of the bumpy jeep ride.

This safari is perfect to combine with a week on one of the paradise islands, Zanzibar or Pemba. Join us on a safari that will give you the chance to see the Big Five and much more in one of the world's most fascinating natural areas.
