Getting up close and personal to Africa’s wildlife is the ultimate thrill. There’s nothing quite like your first encounter with say a big cat, a leisurely giraffe, a trotting zebra or a well timed viewing of the Great Migration in the Serengeti. Do not disturb is good advice, but it’s tempting to want to cuddle a sleepy set of four big paws.
Tanzania boasts several diverse and outstanding safari locations as well as an impressive array of camps and options for your safari experience. A stand out company is Asilia that has camps in all the major parks, two of which include Tarangire National Park and the Serengeti.
Tarangire National Park is home to Asilia’s ‘Little Oliver’s” camp and like the Park itself, it’s a well kept secret. Off the beaten track, it’s intimate and personal (only five tents). It doesn’t get much better than this. Personal service, fabulous food, understated luxury – it’s got it all. An en suite outdoor shower at sunrise is a must. Fear not, indoor showering is there for the not so intrepid.
The park is home to elephants attracted by it’s river system and swamps, as well as the big cats, zebra, giraffe, a vast array of birds and a constant stream of varied wildlife. The landscape is as captivating as the wildlife – put the two together and it’s breathtaking.
Majestic baobab trees are a feature in Tarangire bringing to mind Enid Blyton’s ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’.
By contrast, the Serengeti savannah plains feature broad horizons dotted with flat topped acacia trees.
The cycle of life is always front and centre.
It is here that you can observe the Great Migration – a spectacular event unequalled in the natural world. An estimated 1.5 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra complete a migratory circuit through the Serengeti into Kenya and the Maasia Mara and back again.
Sometimes it can get awfully busy!
There are many vantage points from which to observe this natural phenomenon, but if you are looking for first class luxury, front row viewing and some of the best guides in Africa, then the award winning Asilia Sayari Camp is the place for you.
The specialist guides ensure your safari experience is tailored to suit your preferences whether it be birdlife, flora, the big cats or the personal thrill of spotting an elusive creature in the wild. It’s all so exhilarating and spellbinding, you’ll be hooked.
Here you will find luxury, adventure and authenticity. There’s no time like the present to turn your dream into reality.
