This is the optimum trip.  Our pick of northern Tanzania’s top end safari camps, our favourite places in the best months for travel, all designed to be full of adventure, but also not rushed.  This trip is understated luxury throughout and the ultimate way to experience northern Tanzania and Zanzibar in style.

Travel between July and October and you can hope to see the Tarangire Elephant Migration and the Great Wildebeest Migration in the northern Serengeti.  Booking early for this time of year is essential.
