This comprehensive private safari itinerary showcases the full diversity and natural wonders of Tanzania. It will be filled front to back with wildlife viewing beyond imagination, exposure to new cultures and photographic opportunities you will cherish for life. On top of that, it offers the finest accommodation in each venue, from an authentic tented safari camp – to ultra high-end lodging.

We cover it all in this safari; starting in the Northern Serengeti as the famous Great Migration crosses the Mara river, then moving south to the Central Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater, then flying to Ruaha National Park, and finishing off with a relaxing stay in Zanzibar.

All at the perfect time of year to string each location into one epic adventure. This all-inclusive safari odyssey starts with your arrival in Arusha and includes all internal flights, a range of ultra-premium accommodations — including some of the most exclusive lodgings available — and a private vehicle and guide for the duration.
