Simba Safari

Experience northern Tanzania's renowned National Parks

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Tanzania holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

This extensive safari takes you on an adventure through northern Tanzania's National Parks, including Lake Manyara, Tarangire and the Serengeti. With game drives in 4x4 vehicles and less safari vehicles around, Tanzania offers a wilder safari experience. Why not upgrade to the Superior safari and stay in luxurious Serena Lodges? You can add on a beach stay afterwards on the Kenyan Coast or on the nearby islands of Zanzibar or Pemba off Tanzania. Call our Destination Specialists for more information.
