Serengeti migration Safari and the famous Northern parks of Tanzania
all-encompassing Tanzania safari tour indulges you in some of the most famous
names in the safari and wildlife world. The Ngorongoro crater and Serengeti national
park, both UNESCO world-heritage sites are recognised as two of the world’s best-known
safari destinations. The Serengeti is home to the most famous wildlife
spectacle on earth, the great wildebeest migration. Discover the world’s
largest Lake Victoria, made famous by John Henning Speke as the source of the
Nile. Explore the lake by local canoe and boat and later, marvel at the
elephant herds of Tarangire national park, a beautiful park full of wildlife,
known for fantastic elephant herds. Stay
in beautiful safari camp accommodation.
You can also add some nights either at Saadani National Park for some unique beach and wildlife or head to the world-class beaches of Zanzibar, both are great additions to this safari.
Arrival into Rock City
Meet your guide at Mwanza airport and transfer by road for about 2 hours to beautiful Little Okavango Camp located on the floodplains of Lake Victoria. Travel through the unusual city of Mwanza known as the “Rock City”, due to its huge boulders scattered across the wider landscape. Arrive at the intimate Little Okavango Camp in time for lunch and in the late afternoon, enjoy a gentle canoe ride.
Safari in Serengeti
After an early breakfast head out into Western corridor of Serengeti for a fabulous full day game drive. The area has an abundance of all the great African fauna in the wildlife rich plains between the Grumeti and the Mbalangeti rivers. Expect to see plenty of predators, elephants, large buffalo herds and ever-present custodians of the water, the crocodiles and hippos.
Cultural day on Lake Victoria
This morning, explore the fishing village of Mwaburugu along the Lake Victoria coastline. You will leave the camp by vehicle and return by motorboat, stopping for a delightful brunch at the Little Okavango viewing tower. After lunch and a rest, enjoy a guided bird walk on the camp's grounds or a bike ride through the open bush and village farms between the Serengeti boundary and the lake.
Head off to Bush Rover Camp
After a leisurely breakfast, leave the camp and continue your Tanzania safari by game drive vehicle into famous Serengeti reaching the award-winning Bush Rover Migration Camp later that day.
Amongst the Great migration
Today you’ll wake up right in the heart of wildlife action and spend the day enjoying thrilling safaris in this game rich area of Serengeti. Marvel at the greatest safari spectacle in the world – the annual wildebeest migration. Return to camp after your game drive, relax in the lovely mess tent or order a G&T on the balcony of your Bush Rover suite and take in the surroundings before heading to the camp fire for a sundowner and delicious dinner prepared by your private chef.
game drive to Ngorongoro
After breakfast, game drive across the vast Serengeti to the next famous park - the Ngorongoro conservation area arriving at Rhino lodge near the Ngorongoro crater rim in the late afternoon.
the Ngorongoro crater

Early morning in the crater can be quite magical and is worth getting up extra early for. After your safari, you’ll be driven by road to Kirurumu Tarangire Camp for overnight.
Tarangire national park safari

Make your Tanzania safari even more special by adding on some days at one of Tanzania’s incredible beach destinations. Perhaps the most famous is the beautiful spice island of Zanzibar with world-class beaches and diving. However, there are some hidden gems off the beaten track with few human prints left on the deserted white-sand beaches like stunning Saadani national park, where the bush meets the beach. This is a truly secret palm fringed hideaway.
Few destinations have such an evocative name as Zanzibar. Few know that this Indian Ocean holiday island is in Tanzania and is the perfect complement to any Tanzania safari where you want to mix safari and beach. The UNESCO world-heritage site of historic Stone Town is a heady mix of cultures from Arabia and India with stunning architectural remnants and superb bazaars. This town has its own annual music and film festivals which attract acts and visitors from around the world. From here, head to the north or east coast to relax on world-class beaches and indulge in some fabulous diving and water sports from The Zanzibari boutique hotel.
Safari & Beach
Fancy relaxing at the beach following your Tanzania safari but want something away from it all? Then choose Saadani National Park, the only coastal wildlife park in Tanzania where the bush meets the beach. A place where you can swim in the Indian ocean looking back at vervet monkey and surrounding bush full of wildlife and even a marine park where green turtles hatch. Head out on game drive or foot and boat safari in the morning and spend the afternoon on a stunning deserted beach back at Simply Saadani Camp.
