After laying low for a few years, our Serengeti Safari is back and better than ever. We’ll visit Tarangire National Park, the Serengeti, Karatu, and Ngorongoro Crater (one of Africa’s Seven Wonders of The Natural World). Yes, the trip is *technically* about the wild things we’ll watch for, but the lodging is where we can wallow like wildebeests. Our accommodations aren’t just civilized. They’re exceptional. You can tell your friends we made you sleep outside, but our hosts actually pitch the nicest tents around. Read on to see how we’ll get campy in Africa.
Maramboi Tented Lodge, Tarangire
Never mind humble beginnings. Here’s to one sumptuous start.
In the distance – through the palm trees – you can watch zebras, giraffes, warthogs, and gazelles wander. Stop by the pool for a cocktail before we gather under the stars for dinner. This lodge is set in a field of golden vegetation with views of Lake Manyara. The permanent tents are built on raised wood platforms with private terraces and views of Lake Manyara and the Rift Valley.
Woodlands Camp, Serengeti
Make yourself at home in the World’s Best National Park (Tripadvisor)
Open only four months a year; Woodlands Camp runs during the calving season – when hundreds of animals bring their young to the Serengeti. With only twelve luxurious suites, our time here will feel like a truly private escape. The camp rests within the Nabi Slopes near Lake Ndutu, Moru Kopjes, and the Hidden Valley.
Plantation Lodge, Karatu
One of East Africa’s most stunning safari lodges
After – ahem – ‘roughing it’ for the past few days, we welcome you to one of our favourite lodgings on all of our tours. Inside and out, you’ll be surrounded by exquisite beauty and the owner’s personal touches. Enjoy multi-course meals, freshly-mixed cocktails, and even a wine cellar to find the perfect vintage for dinner. Choose from a selection of wines that celebrate the grapes of South Africa and around the world.
We can’t wait for this saunter through the savannah. Will you join our Gay Serengeti Safari in Tanzania? You can also check our other tours if you’re craving something more European. Or Asian. Or South American…
