Biking, hiking and treetop canopy walkways in the heart of the wilderness
See the Serengeti differently on this truly unique activity safari in remote corners of the Serengeti, Manyara National Park and Ngorongoro Crater.
Head off into the pristine wilderness on an incredible small group multi-activity holiday and enjoy an authentic eco-safari in northern Tanzania. With a maximum of just 6 guests per set date departure, these holidays are a great opportunity for solo guests or small groups to travel with like-minded people, taking advantage of group rates.
The safaris last for 8 or 9 days, depending on the time of year, and the location of the mobile camps also varies throughout the seasons as they move to follow the great wildebeest migration. On this trip you'll have access to beautiful remote areas within the iconic Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara and Arusha regions, visiting unexplored parts of the national parks far away from the crowds for a really authentic bush experience.
The safaris are privately guided by an expert English-speaking guide, and you'll have the opportunity to explore the wilds of Tanzania from outside the vehicle, immersing yourself fully in everything the landscape has to offer. Activities included are mountain biking, bush walking and cultural visits.
