8-Day Northern & Southern Tanzania | Fly-in Serengeti National Park & Selous Game Reserve

Go from the savannah to the deep south of Tanzania on this stellar eight-day safari. Your adventure begins with a scenic flight over the country as you travel to the Serengeti. This is a game-rich area, and your days will be spent exploring the plains. Next, you’ll fly to the Selous, a wild and remote part of the country. Here you’ll enjoy more game-viewing activities, including boat safaris and soaks in the hot springs.

From Arusha Airport, depart by scheduled flight to the northern Serengeti. Soar past landmarks like Ol Doinyo Lengai and the Ngorongoro Crater on this scenic flight. As you fly over the iconic Serengeti, you’ll realise the sheer scale of the seemingly never-ending plains. Your guides will meet you on arrival at the airstrip, and take you on a short game drive to Lamai Serengeti. Relax and settle in while you take in the amazing view. Enjoy lunch and head out for a game drive, when you’ll start exploring the Serengeti.

Relax and enjoy being on the Lamai Wedge; bustling with mammals, this beautiful kopje is a sacred wildlife haven with healthy concentrations of lion, leopard and buffalo to be seen all year round. Venture out in custom-built, rugged 4x4s or on foot (seasonal) to explore the winding river lines, rocky outcrops and sweeping plains. Dine under cover or in the fresh open air and enjoy picnics, sundowners and bush breakfasts. Swim and lounge all while looking out over the Serengeti.

Once again, the day is yours to spend at leisure or on an adventure. Walking in the bush is a fantastic experience, it gives you the chance to really learn about the intricacies of the African wilderness; to taste, touch, smell and feel Africa. You don’t get as up close and personal to the big game, but you do meet the little guys, all equally important in the grand scheme of things. On the game drives, you’ll get to explore the Northern Serengeti with a very experienced guide. These allow you to get closer to the big game and explore further afield.

Today you’ll depart the Serengeti from Kogatende Airstrip on a shared charter flight, which will go via Arusha to Selous Game Reserve. On arrival at Kiba Airstrip, you’ll be met and transferred by road to Sand Rivers Selous. Now that you are here, enjoy the spectacular view, overlooking the Rufiji River from the open-fronted deck of your stone-and-thatch cottage.

Enjoy an early morning game drive, in the open-sided 4×4 vehicles, then enjoy lunch in camp followed by a siesta and an afternoon game drive. In the times of year when it’s not too hot, you can also venture out for full day game drives with a packed picnic lunch. You can also go on a walking safari or a boat safari down the Rufiji River – a wonderful contrast to game viewing from a vehicle.

In between your game-viewing adventures, relax in the open-fronted lounge, dine in the communal and private dining areas or take a dip in one of the pools – all while you watch life on the river go by. Why not take a visit to the nearby hot springs for warm-water dip? It is all about retaining spontaneity wherever possible.

Spend the day at leisure taking in all that the lodge and its surrounding have to offer. Often the best way to see things – to avoid scattering animals from the lakeshore or spooking a herd of elephant as they feed their way through a stretch of lush grassland – is to hop down and quietly work your way into a good position on foot.
