Tanzania and Kenya is one of Africa's original safari destinations and its 'northern circuit' remains its most famous. The Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara masai mara and Tarangire national parks are renowned for fantastic scenery and great game, whilst the Serengeti is famed for its vast open plains and astounding density of predators.
For those on a tight budget, consider a comfortable lodge safari. You'll stay at large hotel-style accommodations that might lack the personal touch, but that typically have prime locations and spectacular views.
Some nights under canvas are highly recommended when on safari in Tanzania.
Camping safaris to Africa are a great way to maximise your time outdoors. Each safari is led by a professional guide, who also acts as your driver. The other important person on many of these camping safaris is the assistant. Whilst we may ask you to put up your own tent, the camp assistant will take care of most other camp chores, leaving you and your guide more time to relax and chat about your camping safari experiences.
Good-quality camping equipment is supplied on camping safaris by your guide, comfortable foam mattresses with sleeping bags or bedding, and camp chairs. Bathroom facilities on these camping safaris are often shared but there's almost always hot water available! Transport for these camping safaris is usually in a specially adapted vehicle with large windows from which to enjoy the sweeping vistas, an often a pop-top room for optimized game watching.
