tanzania Itineraries

Welcome to the Tanzania itineraries page! 

Africa is a huge, huge continent and each area of each country, and even the camps in these areas offer completely different experiences. The beauty of it’s diversity though is that there is definitely an itinerary out there for everyone. We have been crafting tailor made trips for over 20 years now, so really do know out stuff. It can therefore be a good idea once you have had a browse through the itineraries to give us a call for further discussion with an expert who has recently visited the lodges & areas in question… Although we keep our website updated and try to make it as comprehensive as possible, first-hand experience is a much better indicator of the real-time quality of a camp!

We can craft any itineraries to suit you entirely, providing that it is all logistically possible with your time frame and budget. So please note this page is merely here to give you an idea of some of our favourite combinations. We hope this serves as a useful tool for not just inspiration, but so you can work out the kind of trip you can get for your budget and time frame.

A GUIDE TO CHOOSING YOUR AFRICA HOLIDAY ITINERARIES 


All of our 50 itineraries are tailor made for each individual client, according to their budget, requirements and preferences.  We don't sell pre-packaged trips of any kind.  However, in order to show you how some of the different elements can fit together, and some of the kinds of trips that previous clients have taken, we set out here a few example itineraries.  These are for illustration purposes only and should not be read restrictively.  Your trip can include elements of any combination of any of these itineraries - the only limitations are your budget and your timeframe!

Please select the style of trip you are after. If you aren't sure what they all mean, here's a little guide; 

  • Adventure - This is still not camping as we know it! Expect here rustic, but comfortable and authentic accommodation. No frills, but no compromising on still exceptional levels of comfort and service. 
  • Classic - A step up from adventure, this is a perfect style for those who are after a barefoot luxury experience. With very high quality camps, but no super luxury frills. 
  • Premier - For those who are lovers of luxury... Not much is missing on these trips! 
  • Expert - If you are after the very best the country has to offer, this is for you. Private pools, butlers and even private safari parks... This is the creme de la creme of African Holidays. 
  • Then select your budget
