Big Game of Tanzania's Northern Safari Circuit
In just a week our Serengeti Tented Camp Safari takes in the very best of northern Tanzania’s contrasting game-viewing areas and National Parks. Travelling in your own private safari vehicle with a knowledgeable driver/wildlife guide, join the tour in Arusha and head south to Lake Manyara and the dramatic escarpments of the Great Rift Valley.
The focal-point of this safari though is the magnificent Serengeti National Park where youwill spend two nights enjoying game drives and the chance to take a once-in-a-lifetime balloon flight over the vast Serengeti plains. Next you’ll witness the wildlife-packed Ngorongoro Crater before spending your final night at Tarangire with its giant baobabs and elephant herds.
During this Serengeti Tented Camp Safari holiday your accommodation is based on comfortable tented camps including Migunga Forest Camp, Serengeti Medium Camp, Crater Forest Camp and Maramboi Tented Camp - 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.
With our guiding principle of employing local people wherever possible our guests see a direct benefit in the improved local knowledge of our local team, whether that be knowledge of flora, fauna, history or just general Tanzanian life. Through this approach we can also maximise the amount of your tourism revenue that is delivered directly into the heart of the local economy, whilst at the same time providing our guests with a holiday which is fully financially protected by our bonding schemes and insurance cover.
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.
