Tanzania Basic Camping Safaris with Gladiola Adventure

Choose a basic camping safari package that aligns with your holiday plans, book the safari, and we will plan everything together. A basic camping safari is all about experiencing African nature in its purest forms. Picture yourself, your friends, and your family falling asleep in a sleeping bag with lions roaring in the background or the distant cackling of hyenas, accompanied by the occasional roar or trumpet from one of Africa’s larger residents. It’s truly authentic!


Experience the breathtaking beauty of having dinner under the impressive African skies, enjoying a campfire, sharing inspiring bush stories while listening to the sounds of Tanzania’s wild animals—a lion’s roar in the distance, a hyena’s giggle, baboons barking, or zebras and impalas galloping past. Or hold your breath as an interested and inquisitive giraffe family ambles closer to watch you! It’s an indescribable experience!

Tailored itineraries based on our personal favorites.

Keen on witnessing the circle of life? Opt for the Calving Season (January and February).

During late January and February, it’s calving season, offering the opportunity to witness baby zebras and wildebeest. These months are relatively dry with occasional rain. The rainfall triggers the calving season for most herbivores, providing excellent chances to observe predator hunts. Picture the intense scenes unfolding between mothers, their calves, and hungry predators prowling the surrounding areas. If you want to witness such thrilling moments, book your safari with us this season. The abundance of vulnerable calves increases the frequency of predator kills.

To witness the raw intensity of the wild, consider the Calving Season (January and February).

During late January and February, the calving season unfolds, offering a unique opportunity to witness the birth of baby zebras and wildebeest. These months mark the drier season with occasional rain, triggering the calving season for most herbivores. This presents incredible chances to observe predator hunts—a captivating spectacle of action between mothers, their calves, and hungry predators prowling the surrounding areas.

If you’re eager to witness these thrilling moments, book your safari with us this season. The abundance of vulnerable calves increases the frequency of predator kills, providing a remarkable and immersive wildlife experience.

Considering a budget-friendly adventure? Embrace the Wet Season (March to May – low season).

As the long rains breathe life back into the dry bush, transforming it into a lush haven of greenery, the wet season offers a unique experience at a lower cost. Game parks are less crowded during this period, especially in the northern circuit, although some lodges in the southern and western circuits may temporarily close. This presents an opportunity for travelers to benefit from discounted rates at the lodges that remain open.

For nature enthusiasts, the wet season is a haven for bird watchers, providing a chance to observe numerous rare bird species. It’s important to note, however, that the increased rainfall also brings a surge in malarial mosquitoes. If you choose to embark on your safari during this season, ensure you seek the right advice regarding anti-malarial medications for a safe and enjoyable journey.

Seeking the finest weather? Opt for the Dry Season (June to October – High season).

This period, spanning from June to October, promises optimal conditions for an unforgettable safari experience. Here’s why:

– June and July stand out as the prime months to witness the majestic wildebeest migration.
– August to September is the opportune time to observe the spectacular wildebeest river crossings in northern Serengeti.

Key advantages of the Dry Season include:

– Animals are easily spotted as they congregate around waterholes and rivers.
– The lower mosquito presence due to minimal rainfall enhances your comfort.
– Clear skies and abundant sunshine characterize most days.
– Mornings and nights can get chilly, so packing warm clothing is advisable.

For those in pursuit of the best weather and remarkable wildlife spectacles, the Dry Season is an ideal choice.

Exploring during the Shoulder Season (November and December) can offer a unique and tranquil safari experience.

November to March is referred to as the green (or shoulder) season in Tanzania. While it may not be the absolute best time to visit, it presents excellent opportunities for exploration with fewer visitors. During this time, the migrating herds return to Tanzania, and calving begins in southeast Serengeti in January.

Key aspects of the Shoulder Season include:

– A quieter atmosphere compared to peak season.
– Fantastic safari opportunities.
– Potential for lower prices, making it an appealing option for budget-conscious travelers.
– The festive period from mid-December to mid-January tends to be busy and pricey, so booking in advance is advisable.

The Great Migration’s route during this season is as follows:

– December to March: Ndutu, Southern Serengeti
– April to May: Grumeti, Western Serengeti
– June to July: Seronera, Central Serengeti
– July to September/October: Lobo/Kogatende, Northern Serengeti

For those seeking a more serene safari experience with the chance to witness the Great Migration, the Shoulder Season can be a favorable choice.
