For the more intrepid traveler, consider our Western Tanzania Safari which combines stunning wildlife reserves in the more remote regions of Tanzania. Begin at Lamai Serengeti, located in the Northern reaches of the Serengeti National Park where wildebeest can often be seen braving the waters of the Mara River during the migration (July –October). The northern location of this camp ensures seclusion and non-migrating predators are present throughout the year. A short flight from the plains of the Serengeti brings you to Katavi National Park, a large remote wilderness area visited by only 1000 lucky souls each year. The dry season ushers in massive herds of buffalo who congregate in the golden grass plains and hippos who pack the shallow pools, each fighting for territory. Get your boots on the ground, following expert guides as you navigate the expansive flood plains and track wildlife. Continue to the stunning Mahale Mountains National Park, perhaps the best place in the world for chimpanzee trekking. Hike through the forests to visit with our closest biological relatives and swim and fish in the crystal waters of Lake Tanganyika, the 2nd largest freshwater lake in the world. Our Western Tanzania Safari utilizes the finest quality small camps and bush lodges, each located in prime areas and attended by expert guides and staff in order to achieve a truly unique and memorable Tanzania safari experience.
