If you’ve got just a week to spend in Tanzania, this compact safari is arguably the best way to do it. with 3 full day to explore the Tarangire,Lake Manyara ,Ngorongoro Crater & legendary Serengeti , you’ll be riding a wildlife high long after you return home. The Serengeti is the Great Plains of Africa, teeming with hoofed animals and predators in pursuit. The crater is the counterpoint: a volcanic caldera harboring Africa’s densest concentration of wildlife in one confined place.

Safari Vehicles

The roof has a special leather roll back top, so there are no bars holding up a pop-top, which create obstructions of your lens placement. They ensure plenty of space and options for using clamps, molar beanbags, panning plates, and other gear to aid your ability to capture the best images.

Our driver guides are all silver rated and have thousands of hours of experience throughout the entire Northern Tanzania. They understand the needs of photographers and the importance of quickly positioning the vehicle for the best light, composition, and exceptional photographs.

Wildebeest Migration- Ndutu

Rivertrees Country Inn Lodge 

Because Rivertrees grew in stages, each cottage was designed with individual thought and care, and furnished with unique attention. The inn’s design makes the most of the riverine nooks and bends, and clearings in leafy groves, to grant each dwelling its own sense of privacy and peace.

The restaurant makes for a relaxing setting for a book and a coffee, or a garden-fresh meal in the sunshine. Winding pathways weave a lazy loop through the spacious grounds, and reveal a sparkling swimming pool and a massage hut for those that enjoy surrendering to relaxation.

Sangaiwe Tented Lodge

Is situated across forty acres of hillside wooded with beautiful trees, including indigenous African hardwoods.  The local villagers, who’ve entrusted the land to us, have kept it untouched for posterity. Building was done in a fashion to minimize disruption to the environment. The sun heats the hot water for the entire lodge and we’ve landscaped with mostly indigenous plants to minimize water usage.

On arrival you’ll be met at our “boma” where you can re-group with a welcome drink and refreshing towel before walking up the hill to reception.  Our large common area comprises reception, bar, dining, lounge and large outdoor viewing patio. Take a dip in our beautiful swimming pool with a view.  Wildlife wanders in and out of the lodge grounds and it’s possible to climb the hill behind the lodge or take a guided nature walk.

The bedrooms open up to a terrace that is furnished with a table and chairs.

An elegantly designed swimming pool is purposely availed at your service for a swim in between the lodge activities with a beautiful view of the tranquil environment, right at the edge of the Ngorongoro in the Karatu highlands.
