Join Denell Falk, President and founder of Civilized Adventures, on this 15-day safari.  With 40+ trips to Africa over the years, Denell is returning and excited to focus on the wildlife throughout Tanzania & Kenya. As always, Denell has carefully chosen your lodges and tented camps in strategic locations throughout National Parks for the ultimate safari adventure.

We keep our luxury groups small (max 16 guests) and have the best professional & expert Safari guides ready to show you their national parks & wildlife. From the vast savannahs of the Serengeti to a private concession with both white and black rhinos in Kenya - you will certainly tick all the boxes for the Big and Small 5! Let us send you and your friends on an incredible safari in East Africa.  February is the best time to be here and the combination of the migratory herds calving and the concentration of predators ensures spectacular game viewing in the fabled Serengeti.

If you would like to extend your travels in Kenya, please ask us about our beach extension on the pristine white sands of Diani Beach. A great way to wrap up your East African adventures.

Your Host:

Drawing from many rich travel experiences, Denell is an astute critic of what’s worth adding to a trip and she never stops looking for ways to further enhance our guests’ experience.  Denell has been hosting groups for over 30 years, to all continents, including leading inaugural journeys to places where few others have been; resulting in  new locations and adventures for you to explore.  

In every corner of the world, Civilized Adventures has created lasting relationships with the highest-quality ground operators and works hard to ensure these groups are high value and seamless.  No stone is left unturned to bring our guests only the most exclusive experiences.

First Class Accommodation

Civilized Adventures selects the ideal locations to enhance your travel experience. Safari camps are chosen for comfort, ambience, service, quality, and always offer competitive and fair value.  They are always premium locations and standard features include great food & beverage service, beautiful social areas which blend with nature and encourage relaxation, a swimming pool for a refreshing dip, and your secluded personal luxury suite.  While it’s always about the wildlife first, we know that where you stay plays a big role in optimizing your safari experience.

Expert Guides

Our local experts give you an insiders’ viewpoint that takes you well beyond any guidebook. They are passionate to share their knowledge of many of the small things in traditional bush life, including tracking, medicinal uses of plants and herbs and how the people live today.  You will come away with so much more than just what you see with your own eyes.

Typical Day on Safari

At sunrise, tea/coffee and a snack are delivered to your tent, or available in the lounge area. Bring an extra layer for game drives in the cool morning hours. Return to camp for a hearty breakfast or brunch and relax during the hottest hours of the day. When the animals are less active, retreat to your deluxe accommodation or enjoy the pool. Download and edit your photos, read a book, or have a nap before your late afternoon activity begins.  The second of your daily game drives will take you in a different direction to experience new scenery and different animals.  As the sun sets, return to camp where a hot shower and a gourmet dinner await.

Getting Around

Private open sided 4x4 safari vehicles.  6 guests per vehicle, guarantees a window seat for everyone and plenty of space for your camera gear and binoculars!  We always fly you between parks to maximize your time and comfort.
