A Variety of Activities — Cultural encounters with the Masai, a visit to Olduvai Gorge, a day in Ngorongoro Crater, night drives, bush walks, and a private charter flight offering the chance of spectacular aerial views of the Great Migration!

Expert Leaders Who Stay With You Throughout — Our superb Trip Leader and assistant naturalist guides accompany you for your entire safari—you aren’t handed off to different guides as you often are on a lodge-based safari.

Tarangire! This Hidden Gem Offers the Last True Luxury in Travel: Exclusivity — We stay in the remote south end of Tarangire, home to enormous herds of elephants and buffalo, enjoying night drives, bush walks, and open vehicle travel.


Tanzania is home to the planet’s most varied menagerie of terrestrial wildlife. From the Serengeti, whose name means “endless plains” in Masai, to the riverine woodlands of Tarangire National Park, Tanzania is justifiably known as the greatest safari destination on Earth, with a third of its land dedicated to protected wildlife areas. There are limitless game viewing possibilities here—and by investing the time to get off the beaten path, our groups have the best opportunities for stunning animal encounters. From exclusive camps in gorgeous locations selected for privacy and unparalleled access to the migrating herds, you will enjoy fascinating bush walks, night game drives, off-road travel, and cultural encounters with the Masai. Our masterful Trip Leaders, who have an eye for spotting even the most elusive animals, will bring you on game drives to secluded areas, far from the safari crowds. Picture yourself, after an exciting day of watching the great massed herds of the Serengeti migration, sipping a glass of wine and relaxing by the campfire with a billion stars overhead and the sounds of the bush in the distance.

Itinerary at a Glance

Days 1-5
Arusha / Serengeti (December-March “Green Season” itineraries)

During these five unforgettable days, we enjoy the privilege of exploring the Serengeti by 4WD vehicle from our own private camp in a secluded section of Serengeti National Park, far from the lodges and other park facilities. Our special location gives us access to a rich mosaic of habitats crisscrossed by the rivers that run through this world-famous preserve. Dawn and late-afternoon game drives bring us from the open plains and rock kopjes to river habitats for maximum wildlife experiences. Our atmospheric camp offers roomy walk-in tents with attached bathrooms and hot showers, and cozy beds made up with linens and a duvet—this is safari comfort, WT style!

Days 6-8
Lake Manyara / Ngorongoro Crater

At Olduvai, we visit the fascinating archaeological site where Mary Leakey discovered the Zinjanthropus skull, then explore lush Lake Manyara National Park, home to tree-climbing lions and troops of baboons and blue monkeys. Ngorongoro Crater’s beauty must be seen to be believed: on the crater’s 105-square-mile grassy floor lives Africa’s largest permanent concentration of wildlife in a phenomenally scenic setting. Our day on the crater floor brings us a magnificent array of wildlife, including the chance to see black rhino.

Days 9-13
Tarangire / Arusha

It is astounding to see Tarangire National Park’s tremendous seasonal concentrations: elephant clustered in the hundreds, huge herds of zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, eland, and impala, smaller groups of oryx, kongoni, and Grant’s gazelle, and troops of baboons. Our very private camp, set within the territory of one of Tarangire’s largest lion prides, offers us all the creature comforts. While here, we savor the thrilling experience of exploring on foot and enjoy night drives in search of nocturnal wildlife as well as visits with the local Masai. Feeling adventurous? One of our options here is a night in a special lightweight camp, and another is an exciting balloon safari, complete with a champagne brunch. Depart on Day 13 via Arusha.
