SERENGETI SAFARI CAMP - The Serengeti Safari Camp ‘moves’ according  to the season and the path of the migration.  Accommodation for a maximum of 8 is  provided in traditional luxury tents, each with verandah and en-suite facilities.  Meals are served al fresco or in the large mess tent.  Each set of clients has their own private guide and vehicle at their disposal  for the duration of their
stay. The camp is sited in an area that has the greatest concentration of game or good access to that game at the time of the safari with every possible comfort in the depths of the African bush. The choice of area is dependent on weather patterns, with the resultant game movements, all of which can vary in the Serengeti from one year to the next.  The flexibility of this camp gives guests the best possible opportunities for game-viewing probably in Africa as a whole.



Nduara Loliondo Safari Camp was designed to celebrate Nomadic cultures around the world: the Mongolian Gers and the Maasai boma. The outcome of  is the most amazing camp you will ever see.

Nduara Loliondo operates within the Maasai concession area on the eastern periphery of the Serengeti National Park. Whilst the landscape and game is stunning, there is an emphasis on cultural interaction with the Maasai.

Here, outside the park boundary you have the opportunity to do walking safaris and night-drives. On foot this amazing landscape offers a completely different viewpoint. The Loliondo Safari Camps moves seasonally as weather and game conditions dictate. A safari linking Loliondo Safari Camp and Serengeti Safari Camp offers the ultimate Serengeti experience.

Southern Tanzania - Selous National Park  The 45,000 square kilometre Selous  Reserve in  Southern Tanzania  covers five percent of that country's land surface. It is the largest watered game reserve in  Africa ; it is home to more elephant (57,000); more hippo (40,000); more African wild hunting dogs (1,300); more Cape buffalo (110,000) and more crocodiles than any other park on the continent. With access limited to small airplane service from  Dar es Salaam, and with virtually no improvements, it is utterly wild. The entire reserve sees maybe 5,000 tourists a year, and it is as close to old Africa as you'll find anywhere on the continent.  Safari opportunities include:
  • Sand Rivers Selous -  One of Africa's most famous lodges, built in 1994, the lodge's 8 stone and thatch cottages hold stunning views of the Rufiji River, and lonely game drives in this untraveled wilderness are done by open vehicle, boat and foot--indeed, the freedom of the wilderness is the rule here, and a client's imagination about the only limitation.
  • Nomad Selous Walks - Adventurous Walking Safaris, offering one of the most authentic wilderness experiences in Africa. A 5 night itinerary that takes in the wonderfully diverse ecosystems of thick riverine forests, woodlands, gorges, open grasslands, lakes, hot springs and meandering sand rivers. Superb guiding and maximum of 6 people per walk. Scheduled departures start every Monday. Private departures can be arranged. June to October.
  • Kiba Point - a new eight bedded camp that is to private books available on an exclusive basis with private guides, vehicles and boats.
