The Serengeti and Maasai Mara need little introduction. This epic ecosystem is home to the great wildebeest migration, during which over two million mammals kick up dust as they travel across seemingly endless grass plains. This handcrafted adventure takes you and your partner to the heart of the action, using a series of unique safari experiences and romantic camps to unveil the untamed beauty of a world famous land. It's a chance to get lost amongst some of the most beautiful landscapes on our earth, and an opportunity for an adventurous escape that's miles from modern civilization or other tourists. You'll spend four days crossing the Serengeti, two days in the Maasai Mara, and a further three days of safari in two of East Africa's equally impressive destinations: Ngorongoro Crater and Amboseli National Park.
This isn't a standard trip across four renowned reserves and national parks. Carefully blending the sublime nature with romantic touches, this tailored itinerary offers fresh perspectives designed with the escaping couple in mind. Like private hot air balloon trips above the Serengeti plains, mobile camps miles from any other visitor, and walking safaris in pachyderm country. It all starts in Ngorongoro Crater, an extinct volcano that's developed into arguably the planet's most abundant natural reserve. Sometimes it's possible to spot the Big Five within a mile of each other. But this safari isn't about notions of check lists and the Big Five. You become absolutely submerged in a world untamed. Senses are elevated as lion roars resonate through the camp, antelope graze beside your veranda, and the panoramas stretch on for eternity.
After two Ngorongoro game drives you head into the Serengeti on day three. Start in the southeastern corner of the park, a mass congregation point for calving wildebeest and big cats. Admire this patchwork of immense herds from the sky with a hot air balloon ride above the plains, complete with champagne and spine-tingling vistas. Now follow the herds on the migratory route, journeying along the western sections of the park and lazily enjoying an afternoon on the banks of the Grumeti River. This is where the ungulates are chased across the river by cats and have to avoid the jaws of ravenous crocodiles. Continue the journey into the heart of the hinterland where a mobile camp is surrounded with all the action. Wildebeest and zebra meander past your luxury tent followed, as always, by a cast of indelible predators.
On day seven you leave Tanzania, continuing your journey through the ecosystem by crossing into Kenya's Maasai Mara. The mesmerizing interaction between predator and prey continues, the abundance of natural hunting scenes surprising even the most experienced safari aficionado. Completing the safari immersion is Amboseli National Park. Herds of elephants wander beneath the snow-capped jewel of Mount Kilimanjaro, the predators continue to impress, and antelopes graze on lush grass beside your balcony. As always, your en-suite tent will redefine impressions of camping and ensure you and your partner are alone in the wilderness.
For all the dazzling adventure and thrills, this itinerary also brings continual charm and serenity. Clink glasses around a crackling camp fire, let nature sing a lullaby, and spend endearing hours watching the wildlife roll past your veranda. Little touches elevate the romance, like candlelit dinner tables in the bush and a swimming pool with views onto the plains. This is an itinerary for couples who value space and privacy. In each camp there are just a few or no other guests and it's unlikely you will see them. All safari activities are private and your discreet guide knows how to find a balance between unveiling the wildlife world and leaving you alone with nature. So jump in to ten days of adventure, relaxation, and romantic indulgence in nature's most spectacular wilderness. This is your Tanzania romantic getaway!
