Mobile Safaris
in Tanzania

Mobile safaris offer unguilded and highly privileged access to some of Tanzania’s wild places. The concept is about recognising the importance of “right place, right time” and the genius of creating an exceptional safari with minimal clutter.


About Tanzania Mobile Safaris

We’ve always loved the simplicity of mobile safaris. These comfortable lightweight tented camps in Tanzania allow light-touch access to wild parts of Africa.

Mobile expeditions in the south (Ruaha and Selous) are the ideal way to explore this relatively little-known neck of the woods. Most people fly into and out of these parks because of the relatively large distances, but if you like the idea of seeing a bit of rural Tanzania and visiting villages and markets along the way, then this is highly recommended.

The combination of big game and real freedom to get on your own two feet is something that’s increasingly hard to find these days. But in Northern Tanzania there is a corner of wilderness, lying between the Northern Rift Valley, that offers just that – the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Highlands.

There are no lodges here, and the only crowds you’ll encounter are wildebeest. The best way to explore this area is with a simple mobile camp. Between December and May – rains permitting – the area turns a vibrant green and becomes one of our favourite places on the planet.

Highlights of a mobile safari Tanzania

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.


During the dry season from June to October, head to the Northern Serengeti to catch a glimpse of the drama as millions of wildebeest chance their luck across the Mara River. Witness this on foot as your mobile camp will put in the heart of the action.

December to May is a sensational time to in the southern plains of the Serengeti and strike out on an epic mobile safari along the Rift Valley and Gol Mountains. The landscapes transform to a vibrant green and you’re in just the place as the wildebeest start arriving back in town to begin the calving season.

Fly Camping

Simple lightweight camps used to support Mobile safaris are one of the greatest pleasures in the wilderness.

Fly camping is minimalist camping par excellence. Above all, it’s about experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of the African night; myriad stars, the noise of elephants foraging near camp, the calls of hyenas, leopards and lions. Frills are restricted to the essentials: good simple food, cold drinks and a comfortable bed roll.

One of the best mobile safaris combines the Selous Game Reserve with Ruaha National Park, a journey which takes you overland through the Uluguru Mountains via Mikumi and the Udzungwa Mountains.

For the adventurous though, it’s possible to extend further west to Katavi National Park and even the shores of Lake Tanganyika, all the while using simple but comfortable tented camps and travelling in the company of a highly experienced guide.
