The adventure starts at Sanctuary Swala Camp. This is the most luxurious property in Tarangire, and it has a peaceful setting in the park’s remote south-western region. Next, you’ll stay at Entamanu Ngorongoro. Operated by Nomad Tanzania, this is an authentic little camp situated well away from the area’s other properties and spectacularly located right on the crater rim! Finally, you’ll spend four nights at Lamai Serengeti, another property from the impressive Nomad Tanzania portfolio. Situated in the Serengeti’s northernmost region, Lamai offers wonderful wildlife viewing.

While at Swala Camp, you’ll enjoy classic vehicle and walking safaris, in the company of knowledgeable and experienced guides. Tarangire is home to four of the Big Five, in addition to numerous smaller mammals and ample birdlife! Expertly guided game drives are also offered from Entamanu, as are highlands walks and cultural experiences. And the focus at Lamai is vehicle safaris plus short bush walks. If you happen to be in the Serengeti during the period from July to October, you can look out for the huge herds of the Great Migration, pushing up into the north of the national park to find food.

The final few days of your trip are spent in the Serengeti. To get here, you’ll have a private road transfer to Lake Manyara Airport and then you’ll fly to Kogatende Airstrip (1 hr 15 mins). From Kogatende, you’ll have a shared road transfer to Lamai. Your accommodation will be a standard room. The standard here is very luxurious, and each room flows out onto a private deck.

This is a superb safari destination throughout the year, but please note that the camp is closed during April and May. Our recommended months are July through to October, as this period sees the astonishing Great Migration river crossings – huge herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelles hurtle through swift-flowing waters in their search for good grazing. Impressive concentrations of predators are at large too, and there’s lots of birdlife!
