We've tried to sum up the excitement, anticipation and feeling of "being there" in a short video...enjoy!
Our camp is a little gem. Full of heart and soul, and tucked into a grove of secluded riverside bush, it is so much at one with the wild that animals hardly look up as they do their thing around us.
Entamanu Ngorongoro, the newest addition to our family, sits on an extraordinary site in the sharp air of the Ngorongoro Highlands, perched on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater.
A family safari is an opportunity to spend quality time together creating memoriesthat last a lifetime.

If you're seeking an adventure far from the madding crowds and want to feel true wilderness, this is where you go.
As you walk around the camp, you are constantly surprised by new views of baobab groves glowing in the sun.

3 nights Mkombe's House Lamai
4 nights Kiba Point Selous
All on your own terms, in our two completely private safari camps experience the best of the Serengeti migration in the Mara River area of Northern Serengeti; then head over to the Selous ...
Morning flight from Arusha to Kogatende in the northern Serengeti. Met by your private Nomad car and guide for a short game drive to Mkombe's House Lamai - almost invisible from the plains but commanding endless views across this beautiful landscape. Settle into your private home away from home before a delious lunch in the open dining room. Have a chat to your guide and house crew about what you would like to do - perhaps a gentle afternoon ...
Today you can do whatever you please - no need to fit into other peoples schedules here. We would suggest that after an early breakfast, you head out with your private Nomad guide to make the most of the day. At this time of the year, there's a strong possibility that the migration is in the area so you'll be out in search of the herds. Whether they are peacefully spread out in their thousands across the plains or gathering in a frenzy on the ...
Some days you may just want to enjoy the magic of Mkombe's House and soak up the views by the pool. If you are here with your little wild ones send them out to learn about the critters just around the house with your guide. Lizards, hyraxes and all manner of wonderful beasties are waiting to be discovered.
Catch the morning flight from here via Arusha, to the Selous landing at our Kiba airstrip in the afternoon (stops at other airstrips along the way are expected). Settle in to your open-fronted exclusive lodge on the banks of the Rufiji River.
Take an early evening trip down the Rufiji River, slowly floating downstream with a cold beer, watching the river life go by.
Head out in the cool of the early morning and take a walk along the riverine forest; have a cook-out breakfast en route. After lunch we'd suggest a short game drive out towards the hide, where you can hang out and watch the game undisturbed.
After breakfast in camp, take a game drive further out into the reserve, perhaps pausing for a picnic in one of our favourite spots. Head back to camp in the afternoon for a siest and a swim before a sundowner on the deck.
A gentle wake up this morning with the sun over the river. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and perhaps a last dip in the pool before heading for a short game drive to the airstip to catch your scheduled flight to Dar es Salaam and home.
Our fabulous camp managers can be found via their own camp blogs, where they have centre stage - and a free rein - to tell you exactly what goes on 'on safari'.
It is easy when on safari in the Selous, to get totally enthralled by the big guys - the big cats, the elephants, the buffalo,...
