"Andrea did a wonderful job designing an itinerary to suit three generations of diverse interests, and was flexible and responsive to last minute changes and requests. He showed us many hidden treasures of this beautiful region that would have missed we're it not for him."

A possible, beautiful itinerary for you
Fly to Ndutu
From Arusha, you’ve flown to Ndutu, on the verge of the Serengeti. You hop on a 4x4, your transfer to where the adventure really begins. Only, the transfer quickly turns into a game drive in its own right. The sheer amount of wildlife that is presented before your eyes makes for a moving spectacle. But this is just a taste of things to come for you, eager for the essence of Africa, will walk the Serengeti.
A Cultural Encounter
You wake up on a vast short-grass plain. It is filled with wildlife as far as the eye can see. The comforts of a luxury camp are not the only thing that brought you to Tanzania, but it is a welcome interlude prepared as you might be for the hardships—and the joys—of the bush. You get a couple of days to get the hang of things here in the wild. Most importantly, you interact with the Hadzabe and become immersed in their culture. What you learn will come in handy in days to come: there is none more skilled than the Hadzabe in the Serengeti. Read more
The Essence of Safari
Early in the morning, you head out into the wild. Your party is made up of Hadzabe trackers and expert guides. Learn to read the signs of the bush, let the landscape sink in. Interact with your surroundings and let a primordial understanding of nature guide you. Tend to your weary feet as you relax by the fireside and enjoy a simple yet wonderful meal. The myriad stars above serve as your tent, the acacia trees around you are your shelter, the relish you experience, that is the joy of life.
Camp Life Rediscovered
After five days out in the bush, you reach your camp. It looks strangely different, or is it you that’s changed? You get to spend a couple of days enjoying game drives or tracking the species that catch your fancy. Why not, perhaps you spend your time relaxing and pondering the experience? After all, once you taste freedom, there’s no going back.
