Our Safary Types
Fly-in Safari: Serengeti Ikoma & Lake Natron
Flying in over the Serengeti provides an aerial sneak-peek of the adventure that awaits below. With clear skies you will be able to take delight in spotting some of the Serengeti resident wildlife as your plane descends for a landing on the Ikoma airstrip.
On arrival you transfer into your safari jeep and begin exploring the Serengeti and Ikoma surroundings before enjoying a sundowner at your home away from home in the wilderness - Africa Safari Serengeti Ikoma. With over 14,000 square kilometres making up the Serengeti, you may not get the chance to see the national park in its entirety but any of these itineraries will allow you the opportunity to cover some serious terrain and see the park in great depth.
From Ikoma you can either fly back to Arusha straight or make a stop-over in Africa Safari Lake Natron to explore this intriguing landscape with a soda lake and volcanoes.Shimmering amid the sun-scorched Kenyan border northeast of Ngorongoro Conservation Area, this 58 km-long but just 50cm-deep alkaline lake should be on every adventurer’s itinerary.
The drives from Mto wa Mbu or the northern Serengeti are remote, with a desolate, other-worldly beauty and an incomparable feeling of space and antiquity. The roads pass through untravelled Maasai land, with small bomas and big mountains often in view in a wild, cauterised landscape. From June to November at the lake itself, around two million flamingos gather – it’s one of East Africa’s most stirring wildlife spectacles. And close to the southern end of the lake, the views of Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano are splendid.
