A Tanzania safari to the Serengeti

The Serengeti conjures up intriguing images of open plains and flat topped acacia trees where huge herds of animals roam free, without fences or boundaries to artificially control their movement.  It is a place that has inspired artists, composers, authors and poets and is one of the most filmed places in Africa.  It is one of Africa’s greatest wildlife habitats, covering an area of 30 000 square kilometres and is probably best known for the annual wildebeest migration that straddles the Kenya/ Tanzania ecosystems.

From November, millions of wildebeest and zebra descend on the Serengeti plains in search of fresh grass and water.  They will stay here until they have calved, moving west and then north towards Lake Victoria.  This wildlife event is one of Africa’s most exciting and spectacular natural events and should be on the top of any Tanzania safari enthusiast’s wish list.

One of the amazing scenes is when the wildebeest cross the Grumeti River.  Thousands of crocodile and land predators lie in wait to feast greedily on the young and the weak.  Africa Exclusive can plan an exclusive mobile safari that will move with the migration.  You will be provided with a private Tanzania safari guide and a private game viewing vehicle so that you can enjoy this authentic safari experience in complete privacy – as if you are the only people for thousands of miles.

A Tanzania safari to the Serengeti combines well with a few days in the Mara and a luxury beach stay on the exotic spice island of Zanzibar.  You could also combine this Tanzania safari with a gorilla trek in Rwanda or spend some time tracking chimpanzees in Uganda.

Luxury safari pricing guide

We aim to provide you with your ideal holiday, individually designed just for you and expertly organised. When you book with us you receive this perfectly designed holiday, travel advice and preparation, flawless organisation of the trip, ATOL financial protection and our 25 years’ experience. Because we have excellent confidential rates with lodges and airlines, the price of your holiday will be generally the same as you would pay were you to somehow book all the lodges, transfers and flights yourself.

There is a world of difference between one of our tailormade safaris and most package holidays printed in a brochure. Package holidays are usually designed to be as cheap as possible and of course involve large numbers of people doing the same thing. Our safaris use small, more exclusive and remote camps usually with guests flying in, and often virtually everything is included in the price. The experience is completely different.

Many of these small lodges and camps have broadly similar prices, and it is possible to arrange a superb two week safari for between £4,000 to £7,000 per person ($7,000 – $11,000) season dependant, all inclusive. Realistically it is difficult to reduce that figure, and by including Botswana in peak season, chartering a private plane, disappearing to some magical desert island, or flying at the front of the plane it’s easy to substantially increase that figure!
