Location of Adventure
Tanzania, East Africa
Group Size Limit
Approximately 12 Travelers
Our safaris generally have the smallest group size in the industry (typically averaging about eight travelers), but on this Tanzania safari we have arranged for a slightly larger group to take advantage of several safari vehicles, all in radio contact, searching for the migration. This gives us a better chance to witness this spectacular event. Small group sizes are the best way to experience nature, and this is especially true for our photographic adventures. With a maximum of just three travelers per safari vehicle, you’re assured of plenty of space and personalized attention when you need it. As a small group, we maintain the flexibility to adapt to changing conditions in a way that maximizes the photo opportunities – we'll depart early in the morning to chase the best light, remain at a site of specific photographic interest to fully explore the potential, or move to a new destination when desired. Our Expedition Leader, who is both an expert naturalist and accomplished photographer, is always available to answer your questions and provide tips and techniques to help you better photograph this amazing region of the world and its wild inhabitants.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
As with all of our adventures around the world, our focus is on wildlife and nature viewing, and in Africa a big portion of that is performed during our wildlife drives. In Tanzania our safari vehicles are specially-adapted, reinforced, roof-hatch Land Cruisers, offering each guest a window seat, plus additional space for photo gear. Since each row has its own roof hatch all guests enjoy excellent viewing opportunities. With no middle seats, there is ample room for gear and extra leg room. Depending on the exact group size, Expedition Leaders will spend time in each of the two vehicles offering photo instruction throughout the safari. Refrigerators/ice boxes keep drinks cool for our guests and an on board library of bird and mammal books offer insight into the region’s natural history. As is the case with all of our vehicles, these safari trucks are enhanced with specialized suspensions to ensure the most comfortable ride possible in the wilds of Africa.
Our Private Leaders
Internal light aircraft flights, accommodations, all meals from dinner Day 1 to lunch on final day, non-alcoholic drinks at camps, with meals, and in vehicles, house alcoholic beverages in camps, services of NHA Expedition Leader (specific leaders subject to change), local guides and camp staff, some gratuities, airport transfers on Day 1 and final day, permits and entrance fees, and all taxes.
Not Included
Travel to and from start and end point of trip, premium alcoholic beverages, some gratuities, passport and visa fees, optional activities, items of a personal nature (phone calls, souvenirs, etc.), airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes, optional travel insurance, and required medical evacuation insurance.
Physical Requirements
There is no strenuous activity involved during this safari, though a safari vehicle frequently offers a bumpy ride. Wildlife drives often involve long hours of sitting and sometimes bouncing around. While we don't consider this strenuous, it can be uncomfortable and pose a particular type of physical demand on the body. All travelers must be able to climb into and out of the raised 4x4 trucks that we use for safari vehicles. They must also be able to walk to and from the vehicle to our camp accommodations, which sometimes involves walking over uneven ground or on boardwalks. Safari accommodations and vehicles are not climate controlled and, depending on the seasonality, temperatures can range from quite cold to extremely hot so it is critical that travelers come prepared. Additionally, while any short walks are considered optional, you will get the most out of your safari experience if you can walk a mile or two over uneven ground without assistance. We recommend that all travelers have an adventurous spirit, as they will often enjoy the closest animal encounters.
Important Information About This Trip
Your safari wildlife drives take place in the highest quality, 4-wheel drive Land Cruisers, providing up-close encounters that cannot be accomplished in typical safari vans. This is a very important feature of our safaris. These vehicles have roof hatches which provide a full 360- degree view of the wildlife. Since every passenger is guaranteed a window seat, you are assured you will have plenty of space for wildlife viewing and taking photographs.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for our guests' safety. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat, we request that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We will add the cost of a medical evacuation policy to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, contact number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
Getting There & Getting Home
Please plan to arrive in Arusha, Tanzania by 5 pm on Day 1 in order to attend a 7 pm Welcome Dinner. You are free to depart from Arusha after 5 pm on the final day.

We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as our staff is intimately familiar with the special requirements of these programs and can arrange the most efficient and cost-effective travel.
