Big game, the migration, and authentic cultural interactions from some of Tanzania's most polished lodges in our luxury Tanzania safari

Each property featured on this luxury Tanzania safari itinerary is located on a private concession teeming with wildlife, meaning rewarding game drives year-round, but especially so if you time your visit with the magnificent herds of the annual wildebeest migration. 

Starting from Arusha, you’ll wind your way through Tarangire and Lake Manyara national parks to the Serengeti, sometimes by road and sometimes by bush plane, staying in intimate tented camps that offer the highest standards of hospitality. A definite highlight is the opportunity to engage with the Hadzabe, one of the last remaining hunter-gatherer tribes in Tanzania.
