The very select habitats for chimpanzees in Tanzania mean that these are a specialized interest, but certainly worth the price and the distance if you are keen to experience these wonderful animals in the wild.
The best option is at Mahale Mountains National Park, on Lake Tanganyika. This is a stunning, wooded, mountainous region, and all safaris are on foot. Guests stay at Greystoke
, which is a seriously superb camp in its own right, nestled in the foothills on a beach of the lake. Guests return from safari walks to snorkel the clear, freshwaters and catch fish for their supper! Seriously inspired tents and décor make this a very special and memorable experience.
Hot air balloon safaris
Hot air balloon trips run out of the Serengeti, only. These leave at dawn from the Ndutu, Seronera and Grumeti regions, and after a couple of hours of floating above the plains, you land to find a sumptuous bush breakfast laid on with aplomb.
There are various options to ride on safari, whether it is a one off day trip or a longer riding experience. Please discuss your interests to find the best options for you.
