serengeti & selous family safari

tzc 124 - 8 days 7 night from - $5400 / pps

In one of Africa's biggest game spots, we explore.  We have combined the Selous with the mighty Serengeti. This part of the Serengeti is bisected by the Mara River, which once a year over a million wildebeest throw themselves across crocodile infested waters, heading for where the grass is greener.

Experiences: Private guided night and day game drives, guided walk tours, less crowded experience. Mkombe’s house is set up comfortably for a family with meals provided by staff.

Areas: Serengeti & Selous Game Reserve

 
 

Day 1-4:

FLY FROM ARUSHA TO THE SERENGETI

Today you will fly from Arusha in Northern Tanzania into the Serengeti, and the northern most part of the ecosystem, right against the border with Kenya and the Masai Mara. This is a beautiful flight over the Ngorongoro Highlands, passing Ol Donyo Lengai and arriving in the northern Serengeti usually in time for a late lunch before you settle into your home away from home. 

MKOMBE'S HOUSE LAMAI

We know from experience that when you are travelling with family and friends, and particualry with small children, the ability to plan your days around your specific needs is all-important. That’s why Mkombe’s House has a private guide, with whom you can decide what you’d like to do each day. This part of the Serengeti is bisected by the Mara River, which once a year over a million wildebeest throw themselves across crocodile infested waters, heading for where the grass is greener. What is less known about this part of the Serengeti ecosystem is the excellent concentrations of resident game, and out of migration season we have it almost to ourselves.

Day 4-8:

FLY FROM THE SERENGETI TO THE SELOUS

A long flight from north to south of the country, but well worth it. This flight takes you over a vast area of Tanzania, with a few stops along the way to pick up and drop passengers and a chance to stretch your legs. You will arrive in the Selous this afternoon and game drive from the airstrip with your guide to Kiba Point. 

KIBA POINT - SELOUS

Days out from Kiba Point are all about exploring with your private guide, in all sorts of ways. Open-sided 4x4 vehicles are a great way of seeing things and for covering a bit of distance when that's what's needed. But, most importantly at Kiba Point, we like to retain sponteneity wherever we can. Often the best way to see things, is to head out on foot and quietly work our way into a good position. And then there are the boats. Just being on boats on the river - never mind the game - is a fantasic contrast to time spent in a vehicle. Last but not least, why not head out fly-camping. Take it from us, you have to try it.

Day 8:

FLY FROM THE SELOUS TO DAR ES SALAAM

Say goodbye to new friends at Kiba Point and head for the airstrip on one last short game drive with your guide. You will catch your rather short 45 minute flight from our Kiba Airstrip in the Selous to Dar es Salaam where you can connect with your onward arrangements.
