Northern Tanzania Escape

Itinerary Overview

The famous parks of Northern Tanzania – Tarangire, Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti – are justifiably popular but as they can get busy we have designed this itinerary to allow you to experience these areas while staying in more private and secluded camps.  In addition, you have the chance to enjoy extra activities such as night drives and bush walks.  

Accommodation includes: Little Chem Chem, Chem Chem Lodge, The Highlands and Mwiba Lodge
