Tanzania Luxury Safari

Local Time

Why You Should Go

Though South Africa (Botswana/Namibia/Rwanda/Zambia) may be our favorite high-touch safari destination during the past few years, we can certainly not overlook the uniqueness of Tanzania’s Ngorongoro and Serengeti wildlife areas. No roughing it here as the 5-Star Ngorongoro Manor or the Sabora Tented Camp and Kusini Camp offer a custom luxury experience.

The flagship wildlife feature of Ngorongoro is the Ngorongoro Crater, home to over 250,00 animals, including the “Big 5”. Complimenting Ngorongoro is the iconic Serengeti National Park, where, though becoming increasingly less predictable, 2 million wildebeests usually pass through from mid-June to August.

Best Travel Time: Spring Summer

Hotels

The 5-Star, 180-room Hyatt Regency Dar es Salaam is by far the highest quality luxury hotel in the city. Set on the waterfront with nice views of the harbor, amenities include an out-door infinity pool and an ANANTARA Spa, which is perfect for a jet-lag massage upon arrival!

Eco-friendly 5 star Swala Camp is by far the highest quality luxury camp in the expansive 1770 square mile Tarangire National Park. Each of the 12 open designed tents include all the expected luxury comforts including private verandas (great for game watching!), indoor/outdoor showers, and individual attendant/butlers. For those of us who wish daily physical activity, each tent also provides small dumbbells and a yoga mat (!) The raised common areas include a lounge and dining space surrounding a very old baobab tree.

We especially like the camp’s infinity pool overlooking nearby waterhole with frequent visits by elephants, zebras, and predators during the June dry season (!) One client staying here particularly liked the “sitting safari” at the tent veranda: roaming zebras, elephants, and antelope passing by each morning. An eye-opening altruistic opportunity for all of you is a visit to the nearby Swala Camp-sponsored primary school and community beekeeping project.

Set approximately a 1 hour drive from the expansive Ngorongoro Conservation Reserve, the exclusive 20-cottage manor at Ngorongoro is enclosed within the lavish 1500 acre grounds of the Shangri-La Coffee Estate. With several other quality lodges located in the Ngorongoro areas, The Manor is still our favorite in terms of its high touch service and unique surroundings/facilities. Each 2-floor cottage is designed in the old colonial Dutch style, easily accommodating your family of four. In addition to the private entrance and adjoining sun terrace, we feel the double open-fronted log-burning fireplaces are especially nice, given the cool evenings. Alicia and Allison should enjoy the satellite TV playroom as well as the jar of homemade cookies delivered to the cottage daily (!) Other Manor amenities include a spa, snooker room, 24-hr room service, and wonderful food selections. Laundry service provided and WiFi guaranteed in main areas.

We consider the boutique luxury 9-tent Sabora Camp to be nothing less than Safari heaven (!) Set on the expansive, open plains of the 350,000 acre Grumeti Preserve, each tented suite is lavishly furnished with distinctive, mahogany furniture, Persian Rugs, showers, and A/C. Other amenities include a swimming pool in the main tented lodge (with normal June high temperatures in the 70’s degrees Fahrenheit not so frequented), fine wine cellar, small spa, and tiny gym. With Sabora being located near two watering holes, the game in/around Sabora is plentiful. It is amazing to see zebra and wildebeest grazing near and around your tents (!) Among the game, you will see here are lions, cheetahs, wildebeests, maasai giraffes, elephants, cape buffalos, leopards, and elephants. In addition to morning/evening game drives, archery, horseback rides, and guided safari walk (sorry, but must be age 15 or older) are offered. Laundry service provided and WiFi guaranteed in main areas.

We highly recommend the hot air balloon experience. Similar to other notable 5-star Safari camps, in Tanzania and Botswana, the dining in Sabora is the highest quality. Among our most incredible memories of our stay here is hearing the lions roaring outside while we slept (!)
