Classic Tanzania Safari

per person

Tanzania is a land of wonderful scenery, gentle and friendly people and unbelievable game reserves.

On this 7-day safari, let us take you to some of the best game parks in Africa. After arriving in Arusha, travel to Lake Manyara, in the spectacular Rift Valley, home to many African animals and birds. At Ngorongoro Crater enter a Noah’s Ark world of varied habitats and countless animals confined within the cone of an extinct volcano. Next visit Oldupai Gorge, the archaeological site, often referred to as the ‘cradle of mankind’. Then enter the great Serengeti Game Reserve.
