These fly-in safari options are excellent for guests who are short of time, or perhaps wanting to enjoy multi-destinations or countries in one safari.
These well priced packages have been developed for those guests who are really keen to enjoy time in a proper, decent quality tented camp without it costing a fortune.
Morning flight from Arusha to the Serengeti. A Wild Frontiers representative will meet you at the local airstrip and transfer you by vehicle to your camp.
Serengeti Wilderness Camps are located inside the national park, and designed in the safari style of olde – simple, but comfortable with every need being taken care of. The camp comprises of maximum 12 tents, each comfortably furnished with great attention to detail. Quality linens, solar lighting, eco-friendly flush toilet and shower en-suite all add to your comfortable stay.
Serengeti Wilderness Camp (open year round)
Centrally located in the Seronera area, this a great place to base up all year round. Seronera’s network of river valleys ensure year-round water supplies and support an incredibly rich wildlife population throughout the year. There is exceptional resident game in the area, including the big cats, herds of elephant, resident wildebeest and zebra, buffalo and plenty of antelope. At certain times of the year the camp is right in the heart of the migration’s path – an incredible spectacle.
Serengeti North Wilderness camp (open July to October)
This seasonal camp moves from Ndutu (in the south) during the calving season, to the North for the migration and river crossings. Our guides will take you to the best game viewing possible. Sometimes that may entail a long day in the vehicle, other days the game may be close by! Sumptuous meals are prepared by our friendly safari chefs, and are served in the dining tent, or directly under the stars.
Overnight at selected Serengeti Wilderness Camp on a full board basis (all meals included).
Explore the Serengeti eco-system in our specially customised extended land cruisers, with enlarged windows and heightened roof to allow ease of photography and game-viewing, with plenty of room to stretch your legs. Our land cruisers have game viewing hatches that allow 360 degree views, and are equipped with a cooler box/ fridge and reference books on Tanzania’s parks.
The Serengeti National Park is arguably the best known wildlife sanctuary in the world. Serengeti means “endless plains” in the Masai language, and more than 3 million large mammals abound within its borders. About 35 species of plains animals may be seen here, including the so-called “big seven” – buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard, rhino, cheetah and African hunting dog. The black rhino population of the Serengeti has developed in recent years thanks to constant surveillance, but they are restricted to an inaccessible part of the park.
There is, of course, also a profusion of birdlife with over 500 species including bustards, cranes, eagles, herons, owls, storks, vultures and the bizarre, long-legged secretary birds.
But the most popular animals to be found here in greater abundance than elsewhere on the northern circuit are the cats. Lions, cheetahs and leopard may all be seen here along with other predators, such as the spotted hyena, golden and black-backed jackals, wild cats and servals.
Bid farewell to the camp staff, and transfer to the airstrip – allowing a little time for game viewing en route (you never know what you may see!)
Flight back to Arusha.
