Manyara  → Ngorongoro  → Serengeti

Explore the best of Northern Tanzania

Enjoy unrivalled views of the Serengeti in private camps, bike through rural villages of lake Manyara & enjoy private games drives on Northern Tanzania.

This itinerary offers some of the best that Northern Tanzania has to offer, and what’s more you can experience it by car, on foot, and on mountain bikes, making it a truly unique experience.

Head to Lake Manyara National Park, which is well known for the soda ash lake and its abundance of flamingos, tree climbing lions and breathtaking scenery. Continue to the stunning Ngorongoro Crater – one of the best places in Africa to see the Big 5! We beat the crowds by staying in the stylish Sanctuary Crater Camp, which is so close to the Ngorongoro Crater floor that you'll be the first to arrive in the morning and will enjoy having a big part of the crater to yourself.

Then travel into the Southern Serengeti to witness one of the most incredible natural wonders of the world – the great migration. Every year, millions of wildebeest and zebras thunder across the vast Serengeti plains on the hunt for fresh water and they say, the grass is always greener! Seeing this mesmerising movement of Africa's iconic animals, followed closely by their predators, is a truly breath-taking experience. Both camps you stay in are unfenced and in the heart of the southern Serengeti so you can expect to be up close to the wildlife.

This truly is a safari holiday with a difference.

We use some of the finest ecological tour guides in Africa on this trip and the lodges and camps are leaders in authentic, active eco-safaris in northern Tanzania. This safari is a wonderful mixture of high-end luxury lodges, and close-to-nature tented Green Camps.

This safari is available all year round for game viewing, as the camp follows the great migration as it travels through the Serengeti.
