We also use semi-mobile camps and private and luxurious safari villas like Mkombe’s House in the remote north of the park.

The Wahadzabe bushmen are hunter-gatherers living a traditional lifestyle beside Lake Eyasi. We can arrange for your family to spend a day with them, learning how to make a poisoned arrow and hunting with the tribesmen. See how the women make jewellery from porcupine quills. There’s also plenty of wildlife to spot near the lake.

Imagine sleeping out in the middle of the vast Selous. During your stay at Sand Rivers Lodge, we can arrange for your family to set off on foot with a guide and support team. They will set up a simple fly camp as you watch for elephant and giraffe. Chat around the campfire, enjoy a delicious meal and sleep in the wild heart of Africa.

It will take an early start and you’ll spend a whole day covering the 90-square mile crater floor. Record it all on camera as you encounter lion, rhinoceros, buffalo, leopard and elephant.

The forested Mahale Mountains are one of a handful of places where you can spend time with chimpanzees. Chimp families have been habituated over many years. The mountains run down to Lake Tanganyika and on the beach is Greystoke Mahale. It’s one of the most remote places in Africa and in the most glorious of settings.

Cheetah are extremely elusive big cats. They are vulnerable to larger predators and use their incredible speed to survive and hunt. They do 0 to 60 mph in 3 seconds! Luxurious Namiri Plains Camp is on a private reserve in the remote eastern Serengeti. The reserve has long been the centre of a cheetah conservation project, so it’s the ideal place to encounter them.

With all this talk of safaris, remember that historic Zanzibar is part of Tanzania. We can arrange for you to round off your safari at a beach hideaway where you can snorkel, dive and swim with dolphins. Set aside a day to see ancient architecture of the Old Stone Town.

If you have the time and the stamina, we can arrange a private six to ten day hike up Mount Kilimanjaro. You’ll take a quiet, spectacular route with your own guide and support team who’ll set up camp beside glaciers. If you can’t fit it in, try a couple of days on Mount Meru, or a one day hike up the beautifully conical Ol Donyo Lengai volcano.
