An intimate camp run by the local Masai community, Maramboi Tented Camp takes full advantage of its location between Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara. This strikingly beautiful location provides guests with marquee vistas in virtually every direction: Manyara National Park, the Rift Valley, the Ngorongoro Highlands and on clear days even Oldonyo Lengai, a sacred mountain to the Maasai. In every direction, there is a stage upon which the drama of the bush plays out: the exposed grasslands nearby are a wildebeest stomping ground during the migration every year, and the wet season attracts huge flocks of bright-plumed flamingos to Lake Manyara. In the midst of this varied wilderness, you’ll enjoy the comforts of home in one of the 30 spacious tents here. Each en-suite tent is raised up on wooden decking and offers a spacious private veranda from which to gaze out upon this spectacular landscape. In addition to the swimming pool on site, a great place to cool off while looking out over the endless plains, there is a lounge area where guests can relax and a small library where they can peruse books on the region’s wildlife and brush up on the species they’ll see. Join the expert guides here on game drives or on walking safaris, being sure to keep an eye out for the massive array of mammals here as well as 400 species of birds.

You can walk amid the coffee plants, picturesque lawns and gardens bursting with colorful blooms en route to one of the 51 spacious, en-suite cottages here. Each cottage has a wide-open feel with vaulted ceilings, a tastefully decorated bedroom, a lounging area, as well as a bathroom and a private deck ideal for relaxing while looking out over the sweeping Rift Valley. The thatched main building is perfect for unwinding as well: sit back and look out over the plantation and flower gardens from the elevated deck, enjoy a cool cocktail in the bar, or warm yourself by the fireplace, a welcome amenity in the fresh, brisk air of the highlands. There are plenty of options for discovering this region as well. Activities may include safaris out to the Ngorongoro Crater, known as “Africa’s Garden of Eden” for its incomparable density of wildlife, as well as bird watching. You may also enjoy walking safaris through Ngorongoro Montane Forest and along the Oldeani Volcano, or set off on an excursion to neighboring Lake Eyasi in the Rift Valley, where Bushmen of the Hadzabe tribe still live much as they did millennia ago.

Largest of Tanzania’s national parks, and arguably Africa’s premier game park, the Serengeti is the setting for the most awesome wildlife spectacle on earth. Each year, more than two million wildebeest and zebra begin their great circular migration across the open plains and acacia woodlands. Huge columns of advancing zebras and ungainly wildebeest stretch as far as the eye can see with the predators following alongside. In their wake follow the predators: lion, cheetah and hunting dogs with vultures circling overhead. Serengeti means “endless plains” in the Masai language and within its boundaries are more than three million large mammals. The extensive grasslands are interspersed with “Kopjes”, islands of rocky outcrops which are home to their own wildlife communities which include leopard and hyrax to name a few. Other common species found here are hippo, giraffe, eland, impala and other antelope, baboons, monkeys and a profusion of almost 500 birds.
