For the ultimate safari in Tanzania, where the days are entirely structured around you, nothing beats the luxury of a private, mobile safari. You have your own mobile, tented camp, with all the comforts such as en suite hot water showers and toilets, beds with comfortable mattresses, quality linen, Persian rugs, ice cold drinks, good food and excellent guiding.
The camps are positioned to be in the best locations for wildlife movement whereas with the lodges, they are static and wildlife can have moved onto another area. These camps can be set up in the Serengeti, known as one of the finest wildlife regions in Africa and where the wildebeest migration occurs between December and March, the Ngorongoro Highlands (which is also a fabulous walking area), Tarangire (known for its elephant population), Lake Manyara and Lake Natron which are wonderful birdlife areas.
The days are spent doing exactly as you wish - perhaps going out for a full day on safari with a picnic lunch under an acacia tree, or perhaps having a morning walking and an afternoon game viewing. You spend as long as you wish on sightings - allowing you complete flexibility, freedom and exclusivity. But there is so much more, too.
We secure you the very best guides when out on a private mobile safari. Perhaps you might be interested in photography? We can get a professional photographic guide for you, or a film maker, or somebody who specialises in your own interests – from walking and horse riding, to geology, botany or anthropology.
Having your own vehicle on any safari is crucial to its success – it means that you get to say how long you spend with your sightings and which sighting you spend time at.
But, being in a tent means you hear the night sounds so much more clearly – and you smell the scent of the wild plants wafting through the gauze windows. It is simply magical, knowing that you are safely tucked up in your comfortable tent!
Sit on your verandah, looking out across the plains, watching the sun set, perhaps with your journal, a glass of chilled wine and a bird book. After a hot shower beneath the stars, walk with your guard along the hurricane lamp lit path, to join your guide and family sitting around a glowing fire, before sitting down for a wonderful meal by candlelight and reflecting on the day’s excitements.
