The Luxury Safari Company Unveils Its Most Remote Itinerary In Tanzania
As an increased desire to travel far, far away dominates our growing need for escapism, The Luxury Safari Company has curated its ‘most remote’ itinerary inviting travellers to explore some of the most secluded corners in Tanzania, miles away from civilization.
The brainchild behind The Luxury Safari Company and an expert in arranging bespoke, luxury safaris across Africa, Rose Hipwood possesses an extensive knowledge base about the continent, particularly in the realms of conservation, wildlife, and luxury. Along with her team of experienced luxury safari specialists, they are able to book flights and tailor make exclusive safari itineraries for clients from every corner of the world.
Rose has observed a growing demand among her clientele for remote and wilderness-oriented experiences. She foresees Tanzania emerging as a favoured destination in the coming year, thanks to its diverse range of ecosystems that offer opportunities for exploration in the most remote and secluded corners, far removed from humanity as possible.
The remote ten-day private tour will take guests from the wildlife-rich Wetlands in the south to the dry, open plains of the Serengeti in the north of Tanzania combining iconic views of wildlife, natural wonders and a close-to-nature feeling in the country’s most off-the-radar spots. Highlights include viewing the great Wildebeest migration, a hands-on opportunity to get involved with local conservation and a stay at Africa’s ‘ultimate’ wild safari camp.
“Over the past year, we have seen a growing interest from our guests who want to visit particularly remote safari destinations offering extreme wilderness experiences. I believe this is due to our need for escapism post-pandemic and our desire to reconnect with nature. This bespoke tour is ideal for adventurous travellers looking to enjoy an off-the-grid safari experience in East Africa’s most isolated and most uncrowded corners,” comments Rose Hipwood.
The trip starts with a three night stay at Serengeti Safari Camp; a luxury mobile camp which follows Tanzania’s rolling wildebeest migration and wildlife movement. An intimate bush camp, guests will have the opportunity to explore the most untouched areas of wilderness with first row seats to unrivalled game viewing with not another soul around. The remoteness of this part of the Serengeti can mean surprise wildlife visits to the camp at night and expert guides are on hand to escort guests at all times. The tents are comfortably furnished with en suite bathrooms and communal meals are enjoyed around the fire-pit.
The tour moves to Asilia Usangu Expeditions Camp in the Usangu Wetlands, situated deep in the remote southern corner of Ruaha National Park. The conservation-focused safari camp is the only camp for nearly 40 miles and guests will spend three nights here. The area is still largely undiscovered and Asilia is working with local authorities to study and protect the fragile Usangu wetlands ecosystem. This portion of the tour is dedicated to supporting the current research projects.
Camp guests are encouraged to get involved with activities including installing camera traps in the bush, wildlife-collaring and monitoring wildlife sightings. The expeditionary nature of this location allows for a diverse activity offering, and while there, guests can embark on walking safaris, game drives, night drives, canoeing and boating. Ruaha has one of the country’s largest elephant populations and around a tenth of the world’s lions offering plenty of game viewing opportunities.
For the final four nights, the tour will move to the heights of the Ikuka escarpment overlooking the Mwagusi river for an alternative experience of the Ruaha National Park. This area of Ruaha is particularly known for its high predator concentrations – particularly lion, leopard and the endangered wild dog. Settling in at the luxury tented Ikuka Safari Camp, each of the six spacious tents offer panoramic views over the savannah. The camp’s central communal area consists of a well-stocked bar, a comfortable lounge area, an airy dining space, a swimming pool with a lounging deck and an upstairs chill-out library area.
Apart from game drives and wildlife viewing from a canoe, other memorable experiences here include cutting-edge night drives that incorporate thermal monocular technology to watch wildlife after dark (without disturbing them) and walking safaris deep into the bush.
The ten-night tour in Tanzania starts from £10,260 per person. Includes all internal flights, all meals, all drinks, all park fees, all game viewing activities.
