Classic Tanzania Lodge Safari

This classic safari to Tanzania's famous Northern Circuit parks is perfect for a family, friends travelling together or simply those who enjoy the freedom of their own vehicle and driver/guide. You travel between parks and enjoy game drives in your own private 4x4 vehicle with English speaking driver guide throughout.

You stay at simple lodges and camps in prime locations; Tarangire Safari Lodge gives you the opportunity for a night under canvas with the most spectacular view of the Tarangire River below you, where elephant come to drink; the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge also offers incredible views, being perched right on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater and perfectly positioned for accessing the crater floor at first light; the Serengeti Sopa sits in the south west Serengeti, the only lodge in this section of the park.

This safari enables you to see the highlights of Tanzania at a pace that suits you and at a reasonable budget. If you like this, you may also be interested in the Escorted Tour of Tanzania - a small group drive-in safari.

For those not wishing to drive, please consider our Serengeti fly-in safaris.

On behalf of every client travelling the Real Africa Trust contributes to conservation via the Real Africa Trust as well as working to raise awareness and additional funds for wildlife conservation charity partners which include Save the Elephants and the Save the Rhino International. Clients travelling on this classic northern circuit safari can also witness some of the work we do in the community by visiting one of the schools we support in the Ngorongoro Highlands - please ask if you would like to pay the school a visit.
