8 Days Safaris To Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Empakai Crater

8 Days Safaris To Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Empakai Crater

These 8 days will be truly unforgettable. A basic camping safari offers a pure experience of African nature. Envision yourself, along with your friends and family, falling asleep in a sleeping bag under the African sky, with the distant roars of lions and the occasional calls of hyenas, creating an authentic atmosphere. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy dinner under the vast African skies, gather around a campfire, and share inspiring bush stories while listening to the sounds of Tanzania’s wild animals – a distant lion’s roar, a hyena’s giggle, baboons barking, or zebras and impalas galloping past. Our package seamlessly combines the essence of camping with the comfort of staying in a lodge, providing you with the best of both worlds.
