Day 2 : Serengeti National Park

Location: Serengeti

Accommodation: Lodge

Accommodation Name: Serengeti Tortils Camp, a 3 stra hotel

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After a good night’s sleep and an early breakfast, we set out from Arusha towards our destination, the Central Serengeti. Today, we have a long drive, there is no doubt about that.

But as we head west and north, we have the possibility – if you are on safari in April and depending on the arrival of the rains – to see the Great Migration if it is still in the southern part of the Serengeti. (If not, it will of course be already in Central Serengeti, where we will soon be spending our time.) Our vehicles are rigorously maintained and designed for your comfort and safety; our drivers are renowned for their professionalism. So, sit back and relax, take in the amazing scenery as your adventure begins


Day 3 : Serengeti National Park

Location: Serengeti

Accommodation: Lodge, Tented Camp

Accommodation Name: Serengeti Tortils Camp, a 3 stra hotel

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

On this trip-of-a-lifetime, we now have a whole day to marvel at the natural wonders of the world’s greatest national park. Your experienced driver-guide will be on constant lookout, for the dozens of wildlife species present here: animals ‘on the move,’ animals hunting…or being hunted!

Each day is different here, full of surprises, but we focus of course on the Great Migration, that unique natural wonder which involves a cast of breathtaking numbers, literally hundreds of thousands of animals making their annual journey across the plains as they search for food. Zebra and wildebeest are the most numerous of the migrating animals, grazing on the short-grass plains. But your driver-guide will also be on the lookout for other wildlife, too, using his expertise and ‘eagle-eyes’ to try to find elephant, lions, buffalo, leopard, and cheetah – just some of the many, many species you will surely encounter in this unforgettable location.



Day 4 : Serengeti National Park

Location: Serengeti

Accommodation: Lodge, LodgeTented

Accommodation Name: Serengeti Tortils Camp, a 3 stra hotel

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

On your Third day in this wildlife paradise, you awake again to the sights, sound and scents of Africa. After breakfast, your driver-guide will be waiting for you, eager to show you yet more of the astonishing creatures of Central Serengeti.

Every day is united only in its ability to reveal astonishing sights in Africa’s finest wildlife setting. Although animal-spotting in the Central Serengeti is rewarding throughout the year, you are visiting the area during its peak season for wildlife. This is an area renowned for lion and cheetah, although of course sightings can never be guaranteed.


Exhilarated but tired, you will welcome the comforts of your accommodation at the end of another unforgettable day. Relax in your lodge surroundings before enjoying a hot meal in the wilderness, then fall asleep in comfort in this unique setting

Amazing 6 Day Safari

23-Jan-2021

6 Day Itinerary: Arusha - Serengeti - Ngorongoro Parks. This was one of the best trips we have ever made as a family. Mary was extremely helpful and flexible to rearrange our schedule multiple times as flights cancellations and new COVID restrictions were implemented just during our trip. Just before we heading to Serengeti a new PCR Test requirement was announced to make our connection back to USA, but quickly we got all the support and guidance to get the tests ready just on time for our departure flight. Baraza was our guide and was one of the most knowledgeable wildlife guides I have ever met, he was extremely kind, very funny and clearly knew where find all the animals and how to maximize our experience. I definitely would recommend this company if you want to have a custom safari in Tanzania.

STOP RIGHT HERE - PERFECT EXPERIENCE

19-Nov-2020

STOP RIGHT HERE. Alaitol Safaris was amazing. We were worried because we couldn't tell one supplier from another, and Alaitol Safaris was affordable, making us somewhat suspicious. We were reassured as soon as we started working with them. They were very prompt with replies, and seemed to know the terrain very well. When I emailed them, I usually got a response back within hours, if not minutes. Mary was super helpful. The owners were available by phone whenever needed. They were accurate and precise. Their prices were great compared to what the resort wanted to charge for game drives. On the trip, everything went extremely well. They were incredibly well organized. We did 5 days of Safari in Serengeti and, Ngorongoro crater", and another four day hike from Empakai Crater to Ol Donyo Langai, with a chef, a Masai guide, and two people to help transport the supplies by donkey. We had asked for something unique with a multi-day trek, and they came through. Everything went super smoothly. We felt safe. They were trustworthy. Our guide, Fred was perfect- way more than we could have imagined. He was pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. More than this, he was organized, reliable, and extremely hard working. We thought we'd only be able to do a few hours in the morning and a few hours in the afternoon of game driving, like hotels had offered. No way. We were out by 8 am and did 9 to 10 hour game drives, at his offering! He was so good at spotting the animals, and we learned so much about each of them. He was very familiar with the parks, and very persistent at finding wildlife. We had a great time with picnic lunches in the Serengeti plains. We always had cold beverages at the ready. The vehicle was in great condition. We could not have been happier. Highly recommend asking for Fred. Everything went according to plan for our 4 day hike. Yusuph was a great chef- always paying attention to our specific (vegan) dietary needs, very organized, and had everything under control, even when we got washed out by the rain one day. His staff were also very pleasant and hard working, doing their best to corral the donkeys to cooperate. Our guide, Alex, was very good. He knew all the locals in the Masai villages we passed. The experience was way more authentic compared to villages you go through at tourist stops. The tents and equipment (including our own fresh full sized pillows) were in fine condition. All in all, we had an adventure of a lifetime and would definitely recommendAlaitol Safaris."

Eagle-Eyed Guides!

03-Nov-2019

I had a 6-day safari, booking Alaitol on a recommendation from a friend. Mary was great and responsive with helping me plan my tour and my guide was amazing at spotting animals even before the other jeeps! I saw the big 5 while I was there along with the migration! The Serengeti lived up to my expectations! I also want to mention I was there in the rainy season and the roads were flooded and treacherous. My guide handled the roads like he's been driving them since he was born. The Land Cruser also handled well, but I give major props to my guide who navigated some places I didn't think we could get through. I would book this company again!

An unforgettable tailor made safari holiday for our 20th marriage anniversary

09-May-2020

Like many animal lovers out there safari holiday has been a dream of mine since the film Out of Africa was released in 1986. My husband and I were considering on going to either Kenya or South Africa to celebrate our special occasion in Safari style until we've spoken to some people who recently went to Tanzania highly recommended this country in East Africa to us for its friendliness, safety and wonderful wildlife. Now we have done it too with Alaitol Safari Tanzania, I can honestly say it has been a treat, a delight, a wonderful holiday I wish that I have done it earlier and certainly we would like to do it again in the future. After a long and careful study for what we would like to do and include in our 6-day Safari tour, we decided to go with Alaitol Safari and the safari tour Specialist Tour Hub who has such a can-do and will-do positive attitude and understanding all that made us feeling assured and very welcomed during the entire process so to whom we were/still are very thankful for all of her advice and assistance before and during our staying in Tanzania main land (and later in the Zanzibar. ) We opted for comfort accommodations during our safari tour so Tour Hub arranged for us to stay in Tortilis Camps where we absolutely loved it - the staff, the food, the service and all the settings around the camps were a delightful Tanzanian treat. I am sure there are lots of safari accommodation options available depends on one's personal preference and budgets, but for us, I must say staying at Tortillis have made us falling in love with Tanzanian hospitality, culture and people even more. Last but certainly not the least, my husband and I genuinely believed that Tour Hub assigned the best and the most experienced Driver Guide available - Fred to be our safari tour Guide! We have nothing but high opinions towards to Fred, he is an open-minded, well spoken, well-mannered, a joy to be around, he has a great sense of humour, knowledge of Africa and every aspects of Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro national parks and more....., so our first-time Safari experience has been an unforgettable one largely down to his great efforts that's for sure. Finally I would also like to seize this opportunity to say many thanks to everyone who works for Tanzania tourism industry that we came across this time, you all have made our stay so easy and enjoyable and helped us to create so much sweet memories that we will always treasure. Thank you and a very Happy New Year 2020 to Tanzania.

One of the most memorable and exciting experiences I had in my entire life

01-Jan-2021

Alaitol Safaris did an amazing job planning our 6 days Tanzania Migration safari. Everything was perfect! The accommodation was good value for the money we paid, the food was really good (specially the dinner we had at villa Maua Arusha) and our guide (Karato) was incredible! He went above and beyond to make sure our experience is unforgettable. He gave us a lot of information about different animals and he constantly checked with us that we are happy with the safari schedule. The communication with Alaitol Safaris was great! They always replay very fast at emails and their english is irreproachable. I really enjoyed the fact that they customised the safari to meet all our requirements. Flexibility is always nice, especially in these hard times with the pandemic. At the end of the safari, the founders of the company came to meet us and asked us about our experience and feedback in order to improve their services. There was not much to say since everything was perfect, but I find it very lovely that they took the time to come and meet with us when our adventure was over.

Perfect experience with Alaitol Safaris!!

25-Feb-2021

Sincerely, everything was perfect: from the booking and admin stuff (managed very efficiently by Abel) to the Safari experience (amazing accomodations in a luxury pack and great selection of parks to see different animals and landscapes) and, the most important, our guide Onesmo, who did his best to make sure that we could see all types of animals and answered all our questions showing a very good knowledge of the area and its animals. He was really friendly and we had a great time together. We have also met other guides and customers travelling with the same agency and I am sure that our is not an isolated case. Totally recommended to ensure a great experience in an amazing place.
