7 days from £995.00
In just under a week our Serengeti Camping Safari takes in the very best of northern Tanzania’s contrasting game-viewing areas and National Parks, at a price affordable to those on a more restricted safari budget. Travelling in your own private safari vehicle with a knowledgeable driver/wildlife guide you will join the tour in Arusha to first head south to Lake Manyara and the dramatic escarpments of the Great Rift Valley.
The main highlight of this safari though is the magnificent Serengeti National Park. Here you will enjoy two days of game viewing and the chance to take an once-in-a-lifetime balloon flight over the vast Serengeti plains. Next you’ll visit the ‘Cradle of Mankind’ at Olduvai Gorge and witness the wildlife-packed Ngorongoro Crater before spending your final night at Tarangire with its giant baobabs and elephant herds.
During this Serengeti Camping Safari holiday you’ll camp in spacious three-man tents (but only sleeping 2) at Migunga, Seronera, Simba and Zion Campsites - all well-located for optimum game viewing in the National Parks. You’ll see an abundance of wildlife on this action-packed safari and travel time between the major game viewing areas is relatively short, with plenty of awe-inspiring scenery, colourful Maasai people and wildlife seen en route.

Responsible Tour Operating in Tanzania
Specialist Tanzania works in close partnership with a locally owned and managed company in Tanzania. We feel this approach has a more direct benefit on the local distribution of income from tourism. We support and fully endorse the recruitment and training of local guides, local group tour managers, drivers and representation staff. Rather than avoiding certain National Parks to minimise National Park entrance fees, we prefer to include them as this revenue goes towards maintaining and improving wildlife conservation and management in Tanzania.
Specialist Tanzania is also determined to do what we can to help minimise any negative impacts on the environmental, wildlife and cultural welfare of Tanzania through promoting responsible visitor behaviour; promoting waste reduction; facilitating cultural exchange between guests and local communities; supporting local businesses, goods and services; encouraging guests to eat local foods rather than imported foods; encouraging the conservation of natural resources like electricity and water; and promoting the importance of protecting the local environment and nature.
