wildebeest migrationBoard a light aircraft from Kilimanjaro International Airport to the Serengeti National Park, where your guide will meet you and transfer you by road to your camp, game viewing on the way. If you are travelling between July and October, the camp will be in Northern Serengeti following the great migration. During these months, the area is rich in wildebeest, antelope and zebra, all feeding and trying to evade predation as they cross the Mara River. If you are travelling between December to March, then the camp will be in Southern Serengeti where the huge herds are enjoying a feast of green grass, resting and calving. The predators are all around waiting for unwary antelope to drop their guard and become a meal. Settle into your wood and canvas tented suite with its massive cast iron bed, en suite bathroom and private viewing deck.
Lioness yawning.Wake up early with a fresh cup of coffee and the sounds of the dawn chorus ready to start your morning game drive taking a packed breakfast with you. Scour the plains searching for leopard, cheetah or lion as they search for a likely candidate to hunt. Marvel at the sheer volume of plains game for as far as the eye can see. Stop under a shady tree and feast on breakfast, as you observe the game all around you.
Return to camp for a sumptuous lunch and siesta, before setting out again in the late afternoon with sundowners, kept chilled in the vehicle's on board fridge, to watch the afternoon show. Look for bat eared foxes, golden jackal and spotted hyena amongst the plains game. Find a vantage point and watch the sun slip out of the sky, sipping a gin and tonic, surrounded by the sounds of the ever grazing herds.
Lions and BaobabsAfter breakfast make your way to the airstrip, say goodbye to the vast plains of the Serengeti and board your flight to Ruaha, arriving there in time for a late lunch. Your new camp is set atop a rocky kopje overlooking the baobab strewn wilderness.

All suites have louvered shutters closed for extra privacy or opened to allow the suite to merge with the natural environment. The king size bed is perfect for an afternoon snooze as is the hammock on your private deck. The camp, based in the core area of Ruaha, ensures that you are never far from the action.

Go on night drives, with a red flashlight scanning the terrain searching for the hidden nocturnal animals as they emerge and observe the diurnal creatures prepare for another night, knowing that the predators are on the prowl. Sit around the campfire for pre dinner drinks and dine under the stars with a table just for two.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
