Tanzania’s northern circuit is as good as safari gets. Epic big-game viewing, the Great Migration, active volcanoes, the Maasai, the Serengeti, and the Ngorongoro Crater! This safari takes some beating; it’s one of our most popular trips.
We use three properties for this trip – The Plantation Lodge, Serengeti Safari Camp North, and Matlai Boutique Hotel. The Plantation Lodge is situated just outside the town of Karatu and provides a fabulous base for checking out not only Lake Manyara National Park but the Ngorongoro Crater too! Serengeti Safari Camp North offers authentic accommodation and some amazing safari experiences. It was the first mobile camp in the national park! Finally, Zanzibar’s Matlai Boutique Hotel has everything you could desire for a relaxing beach break at the end of your holiday.
On the way to The Plantation Lodge, you’ll enjoy an expertly guided game drive in Lake Manyara National Park! The property is also conveniently located for guests to go on vehicle safaris in the Ngorongoro Crater. Plenty of on-site experiences are offered too, such as guided walks among coffee plantations and farm visits. Once you’ve arrived at Serengeti Safari Camp, your focus will be following the Great Migration on game drives. The months from July to October are a dramatic time to be in the park, as the huge herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelles push north and cross crocodile-filled rivers in their search for food. And Matlai provides beach relaxation, watersports, land sports, and various excursions around the idyllic island of Zanzibar.
