Our Secrets & Insider Tips

  • You can fly directly between the Serengeti and the Maasai Marato easily combine Tanzania and Kenya.
  • You can fly directly between the Serengeti and Kigali, Rwanda for gorilla trekking
  • Consider the northern Serengeti outside of peak migration season for good populations of resident wildlife yet fewer crowds.
  • Visit the Ngorongoro Crater in the early morning rather than in the afternoon to avoid crowds.
  • If you have been to the Serengeti, then consider a return trip to western or southern Tanzania.

Singita Sasakwa Lodge - Serengeti Grumeti Private Reserve

How much should I budget for a Luxury safari to Tanzania?

Our budget itineraries can start as low as $300 per person per night – but this is the bottom of the range for mass-market tourist. The ultra, luxury properties cost between $400- $1,300 per person per night during peak season, with the most exclusive properties reaching $2,500 per night. For the best experience, we do not advocate going below $500 per person per night for a luxury Tanzania safari.

Our favorite areas - For your exclusive Safari

In our opinion, the Grumeti Reserve is the cream of the crop – one of the most unbelievable places in all of Africa, with Faru Faru Lodge being a favorite contemporary camp. If you’re not focused on the Great Migration, then we recommend visiting the northern Serengeti in the off-season (January to mid-March, June and November to mid-December). The scenery is simply spectacular and since most wildlife doesn’t migrate like the wildebeest, you’ll get lots of solo time with all the resident big cats and antelope herds. A few of our favorite camps include Lamai Serengeti, Singita Mara River and Lemala Kuria Hills.

We also love enjoying the slower safari pace at Chem Chem Lodge, secretly tucked between Tarangire and Lake Manyara. For something a bit more remote and off the beaten path, we love both Ruaha in the south (including Ikuka Safari Camp and Kigelia Ruaha), as well as Mahale Mountains in the west for some of the best chimp trekking in Africa. And for some beach time away from the crowds, The Manta Resort on Pemba Island is not to be missed for your dose of barefoot beach luxury.

What else should I know before planning a Luxury safari to Tanzania?

  • Tanzania: Animals: Tanzania is all about the animals – you won’t find large cities conveniently placed near a reserve for a quick shopping spree.  Arusha and Dar es Salaam are the two cities from which to set off on safari, but neither one compares to the activities in Nairobi nor the cosmopolitan vibe of Cape Town.
  • Tanzania: Luxury & Private Safaris: Properties in Tanzania are usually owned by larger groups, and though you may come across smaller, family-owned lodges, these are not the norm and are more easily found in Kenya.
  • Tanzania: Limited Activities: Northern Tanzania can be a little frustrating for active travelers since most walking is limited by the park authorities; however, there are some options to get out of the vehicle at Chem Chem, Singita Grumeti Reserve and Wayo; otherwise, plan for more activities in Southern Tanzania & Western Tanzania where walking, boating, fishing, chimp trekking and fly camping are viable options.
