Visit between May and June to catch migratory birds. Highlights of this safari include game drives, bush lunches or breakfasts, sundowners around a campfire and a dip into our swimming pool. Add on an optional Night Game Drive. Upgrade to our Sable Suite or book a private vehicle for a more exclusive safari experience.
Travel by dhow boat on the crystal clear waters of Lake Tanganyika, the world’s second deepest lake, to visit with the chimpanzees in one of Tanzania’s most untouched destinations.
