Analysis Private Tanzania safari retreat

  • Concentrations of high profile game (especially predators and/or the ‘Big Five’). This is a sine qua nonfor any safari destination, and the most consistent factor influencing pricing.
  • Exclusivity. As a rule, the fewer guests that can be accommodated in a wilderness area (i.e. the more restricted the supply), the higher the rates. This factor very often overrides luxury as a cost driver – Top-of-the-line camps in  Tanzania are also often located on private conservancies which, in most respects, is more desirable than being in a public Park.
  • Remote wilderness. The further from civilization a camp, the more expensive it is to supply and operate, and the higher the access costs for guests. A lot of travelers are also willing to pay a premium for being in pristine wilderness areas.
  • Camp/lodge experience. The level of style and luxury in accommodation, the quality of food and service, facilities and amenities, ambience, and attention to detail. The more expensive properties invariably excel in these elements of the safari experience.
  • Guides. Many factors influence where guides want to work, but two of the most important are concentrations of game and remuneration. As a rule, the best guides like to be based at the more high end lodges/camps.
  • Convenience. Camps/lodges with private airstrips that are close to camp offer increased convenience due to shorter transfer times between the airstrip and camp. This means less time in transit and more time on safari or relaxing. Such airstrips, in addition to being expensive to build and maintain, are desirable to guests and attract a premium.
  • The costs quoted are rough guidelines, and are per person sharing (single travelers almost always pay a single supplement of between 30-50%). They are fully inclusive, starting and ending at the nearest major airport. Rates include charter flights, accommodation, meals, activities, laundry, park fees, services of a professional guide, and drinks. International flights to and from the starting and ending points are not included.
  • The costings are based on travel in peak season. Where applicable, off-peak periods and approximate cost savings during these time-frames are listed. Where a price range is given for peak season, this reflects the difference between mid-range and “top of the line” accommodation options.

Singita Serengeti

  • Singita is a private laid-back-luxe retreat for a small group of friends or family. It’s located in the 350,000-acre Grumeti Reserve: a remote part of the world-famous Serengeti National Park in northern Tanzania. Stays here are totally tailor-made – you can decide your activities each day, which could range from game drives, guided walks and hot-air balloon safaris to community visits. You don’t even need to leave the house to spot wildlife; watching elephants come to drink at the waterhole or wander past as you’re taking a dip in the pool are both extra-special experiences.
  • Singita House has four suites, each with their own indoor/outdoor bathroom and terrace. The house has a living area, kitchen/diner, lap pool, modern fitness centre, media room and fire pit – all exclusively for your group. You’ll also have a field guide, chef and host to look after you on this world-class holiday.
