Our 5 Day Tanzania Tented Camp Safari takes you to the beauty that is the infamous Serengeti National Park while camping in the untamed wilderness and heading off on action-packed safaris. You will travel with approximately 7-10 people that are like-minded, if not people you have chosen to travel with. Specially designed 4x4 vehicles will take you on the rough Tanzanian roads, but these are the best times for game viewing as you are guaranteed a window seat.

We will make our way to the perfect vantage point of the Ngorongoro Crater. Then we will circle the crater and descend to the other side. A bumpy ride will take us to the Masaai villages as we make our way to the Serengeti National Park. The Naabi Hill entrance gate gives us a fantastic viewpoint across the plains of the Serengeti. It is then off to the Seronera Area in the central part of the Serengeti where you can look out for the ‘Big Five’. Lunch will be taken en-route. We will arrive at the Kati Kati Tented Camp in the late afternoon. This is a secluded camp which is perfect for listening to the call of the wild under the glistening starry skies.

Day 3

Serengeti National Park

We will have a hearty breakfast to fill us up for a game drive in the Serengeti National Park. Lunch will be at a lovely picnic spot. Depending on the time of the year you may be able to witness the great migration where thousands of wildebeests, zebras and Thompson gazelles head for greener pastures. During October and November it is the rainy season and you will see the animals moving from the Kenyan Masai Mara through to the northwest. April, May and June brings heavy rain and so the herds travel back to the western and north-western part of the Serengeti. With all these animals a large presence of predators are in tow and kills might be seen. We return to Kati Kati camp for what we hope will be a time of sharing the action that you saw during the day. Accommodation: Kati Kati Tented Camp. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner. Included Highlight: Serengeti National Park Game Drive. Please note: If you are travelling between January and March you will stay at the Ndutu Kati Kati Tented Camp. This camp is situated closer to the border where a mass of herds can be seen during their migration.
