Our team of experienced guides & drivers will take you safely through some of the richest wildlife areas on Earth staying at great Lodges located in stunning surroundings.

Arriving in Kilimanjaro airport you can fly with our local partner Airlines direct to Seronera in the Serengeti and just enjoy the Serengeti. Or be driven from Arusha to Tarangire National Park then on to the World Heritage site Nogorogoro Crater and finally the Serengeti.

Tarangire National Park is named after the Tarangire river that flows in to Lake Burunge. The river is the life force of the park that the wildlife congregates at during the long dry season.

The Park is famous for its large herds of elephants, huge baobab trees and high numbers of predators and is the perfect welcome to Tanzania’s natural World.


Ngorongoro is the 8th wonder of the Natural World. Located in an extinct volcano, the crater is 264 and has up to 600m high walls, making it the home to almost every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa.

It’s one of the few locations in Africa where you can see the black Rhino. The crater has a river, several swamps, a soda lake with a large number of flamingos, a forest and open plains. It’s also famous for its elephants which, are the largest in the world and have huge tusks.

The Serengeti National Park needs no introduction. The location of many wildlife documentaries and The Great  Migration the whole Serengeti area covers appx 30,000 and is home to over 70 mammal species amongst which a large population of Lions.

The grassy plains stretch as far as you can see with the occasional rocky copje.

The Great Migration

Wilderbeast Migration

Each year the Wildebeest calve in February in the Ngorogoro conservation area and when the long rains finish in May they move clockwise North through the Serengeti National Park and across the boarder in to Kenya and the Masai Mara National Park.  The ungulates are constantly searching for fresh grazing until they stop in The Mara in the dry season in late June/July where they remain until the short rains start in late November when the herds start to move South again and back in to the Serengeti.

The numbers of animals are huge. Some 400,000 Zebra precede 1.7 million wildebeest and another 500,000 other antelope & gazelles which are easy prey for the predators.

For our guests we use two excellent Lodges within the Park: Embalakai Camp near Seronera in Serengeti National Park (that is located in central Serengeti between the words Nov & Dec on the map above) and Simba Lodge further South near the Ikoma and Nabi gates.



Embalakai Camp has 13 spacious luxury tents that can be set up for singles, twins, doubles, triples or a family tent. The main tent with dining and bar area overlooks the Nyabogati river with great views over to the distant hills.

The tents all have solid floor boards with ensuite shower & toilet. An outside decking area provides a great place to watch the wildlife.

The restaurant offers excellent continental cuisine mixed with Tanzanian specialities and is happy to cater for vegetarians and gluten free diets.

Embalakai Lodge


Simba Lodge is located on a rocky outcrop with great views of the surrounding plains. With a swimming pool and restaurant and bar built in the central area it has 15 tent style bandas with a tent built on a fixed platform with a thatched roof.  The 10 queen and 5 twin rooms have an ensuite toilet & outside shower, private balcony to view the Serengeti.

There are also six stone houses that are more spacious than the tented style  bandas but also with fantastic views of the surrounding savannah. Both the tented and stone houses have solar heated water tanks and an electric generator is on for appx. 6 hours every evening.

The restaurant offers excellent continental cuisine mixed with Tanzanian specialities and is happy to cater for vegetarians and gluten free diets.

The migration passes by Simba Lodge twice, in June/July and again in October.
