What's better than a camp that moves to be in the best spot?

A safari on foot with our expeditionary camp is driven by what's best - location, weather, wildlife - so we aim to do just that throughout the year.

From August to October camp heads to the lesser known but stunning national park of Ugalla - a park in western Tanzania where you may not see another soul and you'll certainly be one of the first names in the guest book. Ugalla offers superb walking terrain and varied wildlife at this time of year.

When the rains arrive out west, camp moves to the more familiar territories of the Serengeti plains as we prepare for the arrival of the herds.
