Safaris are by their very name mean 'journey'. And that is what a safari is, a journey of experience, in this case around the parks and conservancies of Tanzania.
Ordinarily safaris visit multiple parks in order to see the diversity of wildlife, as well as the environmental differences between each of the locations. For example some parks are perfect environments for elephants whereas others are better suited for giraffe or wildebeest.
With each park comes a new lodge or tented camp providing your overnight accommodation. It is also interesting to see how each lodge blends seamlessly into its environment and proudly highlights its heritage through the interiors and furnishings, and delicious menus at each.
Should you wish to know more about our approved lodges and tented camps, please contact us directly. Each lodge and camp has a 'Star' rating similar to Europe so depending on your budget we can advise which lodge or tented camp will suit your itinerary best.
