As a Tanzanian safari itinerary with a difference, this 8-day tour opens with the grandeur of Serengeti National Park where you find yourself in the legendary Western Corridor, home to abundant wildlife all year and also the scene for the seasonal Great Wildebeest Migration. You can look forward to exploring the teeming plains from the comfort of Soroi Serengeti, where individual thatched suites offer stunning Serengeti views, even from the bathtubs. Morning and afternoon game drives are designed to catch wildlife on the move and you can also view the action from above on an optional hot-air balloon safari.
You then trade the grassy savannahs of the Serengeti in the north-east of Tanzania for those of Katavi National Park, tucked away in the little-visited west of the country. There is a great mix of wildlife in Katavi, including elephants and big cats, and one of your days here will be a full-day game drive out on the savannah, complete with a picnic lunch. Your accommodation is Mbali Mbali Katavi, set with sweeping views over the Katisunga Plains, one of the best game-viewing areas in the park.
A fly-in itinerary means easy and comfortable logistics, and much more time on safari. This is a journey with an emphasis on the wildlife experience, with morning and afternoon game drives led by expert guides. Back at camp you have a lovely candle-lit ambience to look forward to: drinks and stories around the fire; indulgent multi-course suppers; a table for two under the stars - this is a safari that will also appeal to those on a romantic journey.
