“An excellent Arusha-based company specialising in top-end northern Tanzania safaris, including mobile camps in Serengeti”
Chances are that you'll be staying in at least one of the lovely camps which they co-own (if not, you're missing a trick). Our favourites are Olivers, Sayari and Dunia) - click to read our detailed reviews. Or, to get away from the crowds, book a couple of nights in one of their luxury mobile camps - we love Olakira in the Serengeti.
Other than that, you can be led by their suggestions on accommodation, or browse our reviews and, if any jump out, request that they include them in your itinerary.
In terms of food, most camps offer upscale communal dining at one large table, often around a fire under the stars. Buffet breakfasts start early - from 6 or 6.30 - to slot in with early morning game drives. Lunches might be a ‘boxed lunch’ to allow more time for your game drive, or a light buffet back at camp. Dinners tend to be 3-course affairs with astonishingly good food, certainly at all the camps we've visited! Think steaks with red wine jus and dauphinoise potatoes, chicken curries, spicy soups with daily-baked bread, and chocolate fondant with your coffee. Drinks are usually included in the rate.
Some of the things we loved:
Children are welcome on safari, but this is highly dependent on the camps and lodges you wish to stay in and the activities you wish to do. Tailormade Safaris can advise you when you make your booking enquiry. Bear in mind that you will travel long distances by road so will need to be well prepared. As a guide, children are usually charged 50% of the adult rate for an extra bed in parents' room.
Children (4-12 years), Teens (over 12)
Extra Beds Available
Within the camps, most game viewing excursions are in 5- to 7-seater 4WD vehicles. Some are open-sided; others are specially adapted to ensure that everyone has a window.
Between camps, depending on the distance, transfers are either overland in a closed 4WD vehicle with English-speaking guide-driver, or by light aircraft into the nearest landing strip (followed by a short drive to the camp). Each itinerary will specify if it is land or air transfer.
