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.

3 nights Lamai Serengeti
4 nights Greystoke Mahale
Lamai Serengeti and Greystoke Mahale are possibly the most iconic lodges in East Africa. Lamai is beautifully located around a granite kopje, with the most commanding views in the Serengeti. ...
Depart Arusha by scheduled flight to the northern Serengeti. Landing here you realise the sheer scale of the scenery, and the amazing views from each and every room. Settle in and enjoy lunch with the plains rolling out before you. An afternoon game drive around the kopjes in search of big cats before returning to the camp for a sundowner and dinner.
Lamai has it's own character - each room was designed and styled using only locally available materials. The camp is spacious and comfortable with a beautiful pool, gorgeous lounge and a dining room that serves delicious food. We keep the atmosphere friendly and informal. When you're not in camp, you're out exploring in our custom built game drive vehicles, in the company of expert guides.
Early morning game drives with a picnic breakfast under a lone tree, watching a family of elephant gently grazing in the open grassland - this is a sort of freedom that is hard to imagine. Lunch and a swim back at camp and an afternoon game drive and sundowner on the Mara River.
Depart the Serengeti on a scheduled flight arriving in Mahale around lunchtime.
Head down the lake on our beautiful dhow to Greystoke Mahale in time for lunch. Settle into camp, or loosen up with a short walk in the forest followed by sundowners looking across Lake Tanganyika to the Congo beyond.
As news comes in from the trackers, head off into the forest in search of your first group of chimps. As well as time spent watching the chimps as they play, groom and possibly even hunt, you should see other forest game as well as amazing birds, butterflies and plants.
You'll be able to spend time chimp trekking on each full day you're in Mahale. In addition there'll be the chance to go for deep water swims, fish in the lake, kayak or just head up to one of the amazing waterfall pools in a quiet corner of the forest.
A last trip into the forest followed by sundowners & sashimi on the dhow and dinner on the beach under a ceiling of stars.
Depart camp after breakfast for the return dhow trip to the airstrip and your onward flight back to Arusha.
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'.
