African Scenic Safaris can arrange a budget camping safari or accommodation in the most unique lodges and tented camps.  We can organise any special interest safaris - ie photography safaris, family safaris, honeymoon packages, wedding packages, groups & incentives or your special trip of a lifetime.  

We specialise in tailor made safari itineraries, according to your requirements, specifications and requests.  Below is a sample of our most popular itineraries however these can be adapted to suit your budget and any time restrictions you have.  For example, maybe you like the Ngorongoro walking safari however only have time for a 5 or 6 day safari - contact us and we can email through a specialised itinerary.  To tailor make your own safari, have a look through some of the longer length safaris and pick out the nights you like.  We can then combine this into a safari which suits your required time allowance.



Below are some highlighted extra nights which can be added into any safari itinerary.

Serengeti - (extra nights)
Spending extra time in Serengeti is always worth while.  Depending on the time of year, extra nights can be the difference as to whether your able to travel far enough to find the migration.
 
Tarangire National Park - (extra nights)
Tarangire is famous for tree climbing pythons or the rare and peculiar long necked gerenuk.  With herds of up to 300 elephant, wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland, Tarangire has the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti.  The best time for visiting this park is July - January.  During these months, we will often recommend including this park instead of Lake Manyara National Park.
 
Lake Natron - (2 nights)
Travelling through the rift valley, experience amazing views of Lake Natron, famous for millions of flamingo's and amazing sunrise/sunsets.  Here you can spend the day enjoying views of the lake, hike to the local waterfalls or for those a little more adventurous, attempt climbing the Oldonyo-Lengai volcano at night.  This volcano is active and an amazing experience.  As a part of this extension you will see the true maasai way of life and you can visit a local untouched village (small extra cost). 
 
Lake Eyasi - (1 night)
Lake Eyasi is a great cultural visit and home to the Hadzabe & Datoga ethnic tribes.  The Hadzabe Tribe (also known as the Bushmen people) are most well known for their language which is a combination of clicks, rather than words.  They live off the land and have an amazing informative talk to share with you about their way of life.  You can also do an early morning hunt with them in search of the days food.  Due to the location of this tribe, an extra 1 night is required.


Other short options can include :
  • Visiting a Maasai village (only takes an extra 1 or 2 hours within current itinerary) or take an overnight option.
  • Visiting Olduvai Gorge which takes 1 hour from your current itinerary.  This gorge is regarded as one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world.  This area is very fascinating if you have interest in geology and palaeontology.
