Introduction

This safari begins in Arusha in November 2023

A highly personalised and very informal small group safari (just six guests), using a high spec custom safari vehicle, which gives everyone plenty of space, comfort and unrestricted viewing. We will be using the best camps for the areas we visit to exploit the game viewing experience. Your tour leader Tony McKeith has lots of valuable experience arranging and leading safaris in Tanzania and assisted by expert Tanzanian escorting driver/guide we will get the most from each day. We have combined carefully chosen camps and lodges which will put us in just the right locations to explore the Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro  Crater and eventually the Ndutu plains of the Southern Serengeti.

This time of year is often ignored, but not by those in the know. The trees in Tarangire are vibrant green, and the air is free of dust, creating a crisp and colourful backdrop to photos and comfortable temperatures. Impala are rutting, and Lions are more inclined to climb trees.
The Ngorongoro crater is always a must-see on any safari to northern Tanzania, now numbers are far less, and the experience is very different by no less good for seeing wildlife. The views of the crater themselves are breathtaking but add to that the amazing wildlife that inhabits the crater floor and you are left with sights that will last a lifetime. 

On the Serengeti densities of wildlife can be quite incredible. The great Wildebeest migration gathers in vast numbers on the Southern Ndutu Plains,  giving birth to coincide with the fresh grazing. Zebra mass also, rushing about with stallions and squabbling as they move. Predators take advantage - this is a time of plenty.  Every day on the Serengeti creates more and more wonderful sights and encounters. 

We have planned this exciting safari for December, the time of the rains, a fascinating and beautiful time to be on safari. Yes, we may get rained on but who cares?

With just six spaces available, If you would like to join this safari, please call or email soon and we will be happy to provide you with more information. Book now.
