Safari and Canvas Tanzania - Luxury

Although Tanzania boasts some of the world’s most beautiful lodges, for a true safari experience nothing can compare to spending the night in a canvas tent close to the wildlife and the beautiful Serengeti night sky. If you love nature and the great outdoors (and we do mean Great!) than the Safari and Canvas itinerary is for you: safari by day, camp by night and truly interact with Tanzania's incredibly unique environment throughout your entire stay.



This luxury option includes a flight into the Serengeti National Park, so that you can spend the most time possible on the beautiful Serengeti plains. The luxury option also allows you to stay in luxury camps so you don't have to sacrifice your personal comfort and hygiene to be one with nature.
