Highlights of this itinerary

Often the best safaris involve looking beyond the obvious highlights. It’s about the exhilarating encounters that will make your heart sing. These are encounters that nobody could ever predict, but that make your safari genuinely unique.

Trip Itinerary

ARUSHA (1 Night)
1 Night


Arriving into Kilimanjaro Airport from your international flights we always recommend an overnight in Arusha before setting off into the bush. Rivertrees Lodge is a long-time favourite of ours for the first night of your safari – close to the airport and you’ll find a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, good service and delicious home cooked food.

3 Nights


Refreshed from a good night’s rest and hearty breakfast, it’s time to strike out into the bush. You’ll fly from Arusha airport to Seronera Airstrip where you will be met by your guide and transferred to Namiri Plains Camp in the eastern part of the Serengeti.


The cool and elegant Namiri Plains Camp is blessed with 360-degree views of the Serengeti so in any down time you’ll be able to sit and watch the resident wildlife roaming around the surrounding Serengeti plains. Each evening dinner is served in the spacious mess tent or under the blanket of stars, where you’ll enjoy a delicious three course meal. All meals are prepared from scratch by the camp chefs.

Namiri Plains

The biggest draw to Namiri is it’s Goldilocks’ location, nearly an hour from its nearest neighbour yet with near unbelievable big cat concentration.

4 Nights


An early morning short hop from Seronera to Kogatende Airstrip and transfer to Nomad’s Lamai Camp. You’ll be greeted in camp by the wonderful camp team before settling into your room so you can enjoy the stunning panoramic views across the Serengeti plains.


Standing proudly on the Kogakuria Kopje you can see for miles and miles; Nomad Tanzania’s Lamai Serengeti is stunning – cleverly designed around the large boulders of the kopje and equipped with its own swimming pool to keep everyone cool after your game drives.
