    Luxury

    Luxury safaris frequent the high-end tented camps and lodges in the Northern Circuit.

    Lodge and tented camps we frequently book include: 

    • Tarangire National Park: Oliver's Camp, Tarangire Treetops and Swala Camp

     Ngorongoro Conservation Area: Ngorongoro Crater Lodge and Lemala Ngorongoro

     Serengeti National Park: Chaka Camp (mobile), Olakira Camp (mobile), Sayari Camp, Ubuntu Camp (mobile), Lemala Mara or Ndutu (mobile), Serengeti Bushtops and Migration Camp

     Lake Manyara National Park and Karatu: Manyara Ranch, Manyara Tree Lodge, Lemala Manyara, Gibb's Farm, Plantation Lodge and Ngorongoro Manor

     Lake Eyasi: Kisima Ngeda

    Arusha Coffee Lodge, The Bay Leaf and Onsea House 

    Accommodations

    High-end lodges offer private bungalows or tents and are usually limited to about 15 rooms. All rooms have an en-suite; while the tented camps consist of a bedroom with a sectioned off bathroom adjoining. Mobile camps are lightweight camps that move seasonally while permanent camps are located in the same place year round. Permanent camps and lodges may offer amenities such as swimming pools, spa services and hardwood floors.

    Timing

    During a luxury safari, early morning and evening game drives are most common with a break for lunch. We recommend arriving at the lodge at least one half hour before sunset to get acquainted with the camp and its environment.

    Travel Green!

    When possible, we book only environmentally friendly lodges that utilize solar energy, compost waste and are built from locally available natural materials. 

    Additional Options

    Night drives, bush walks, cultural tours and other activities can be arranged at some camps. A Serengeti balloon safari extension can be added in the Serengeti.
