A real camping safari in Tanzania, tailored for families. Excellent guides, small camps and flexibility with plenty of adventure.
If you're considering going to Tanzania on safari with your family - or a couple of famllies - this is a sensational way to explore one of the best game areas in the world. Using a wonderfully comfortable (proper sheets and duvets), but simple mobile camp, we have a virtually blank canvas when it comes to planning your safari. Beginning with some high impact game areas to get the big animals under the belt we’ll take you into the lesser known parts of Northern Tanzania’s parks; the southern reaches of Tarangire or Manyara, or the little visited, but magical areas that surround the Serengeti. On family safari there’s something about time spent with your children, where you’re entirely removed from the sphere of your daily routines that makes this quality time with a capital K. Watch a short video to see a bit more about this camp.
This isn’t all about rattling around in a landrover counting animals; Tanzania is full of outstanding places where you can walk or clamber up massive rocks, or spend the day with Maasai whose world couldn’t be more different to the one you and your children inhabit. If you’re feeling really adventurous we can arrange for you to climb a volcano under the light of the full moon. To cap it all (and this is the bit that most people comment on when they come back) you’ll be travelling with a small crew of some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, whose proficiency at everything from cooking over an open fire to beating your children at football, will make you want to ask them to come and live with you.
A light mobile safari like this gives you a private vehicle and guide throughout your safari and this ensures that you can take the game viewing - whether by vehicle or on foot - at a pace that suits you and your children. It means that days can be structured to suit yourselves; leave early in the mornings taking a picnic and returning late in the evening, or have relaxed starts with a good breakfast in camp and leisurely game viewing. The key is that you decide.
