Tanzania’s Northern Treasures

Discover three of Tanzania’s most famous national parks and the country’s epic wildlife, travelling from photogenic Tarangire through the impressive Ngorongoro Crater to the rolling plains of the Serengeti. Go on game drives across across golden grasslands and within the greatest intact caldera on the planet, with opportunities to learn about Maasai culture and the country’s fascinating colonial history.

Tanzania lends itself to tailor made safaris, and we can design an itinerary to suit your requirements using road and/or air transfers and your choice of lodges, camps or full service camping. Tours can depart with a minimum of 2 guests any day of the week.

This sample itinerary can easily be amended to suit your interests. The cost of your safari will depend on the number of nights and the standard of accommodation used. Our tailor-made safaris are based on exclusive use of a vehicle, so are also ideal for private family safaris and small group travel.
