From the depths of Ngorongoro Crater to the vast Serengeti plains, through the regions of Tarangire and Zanzibar, your small group – limited to 18 travelers – encounters the breadth of Tanzania’s riches. With its abundant wildlife, exquisite landscapes, and diverse cultures, Tanzania presents many important aspects of the East African life. Begin the 14-day adventure with two nights in Arusha, setting out on a game drive in beautiful Arusha National Park for a first taste of Tanzania’s unparalleled wildlife viewing. Here and throughout the trip, enjoy guaranteed window seating in safari vehicles. Travel next to the Tarangire River, renowned for its numerous elephants and iconic baobab trees, and explore this gem of a park on morning and afternoon game drives during a two-night stay. Journeying on to Ngorongoro, spend two nights in a safari lodge set on the rim of Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and a UNESCO site, descending to the magnificent crater’s floor for an unforgettable game drive. En route to the fabled Serengeti, visit Olduvai Gorge, famous for the prehistoric remains Mary Leakey discovered here, and visit a local Maasai village. Stay at a Serengeti game lodge for three nights, taking game drives with the chance to see Africa’s “Big Five,” along with other plains animals and some 500 bird species. A beachfront hotel in tropical Zanzibar offers a tranquil base for the next two nights. Tour Stone Town, Zanzibar’s capital and a UNESCO site. Visit a spice plantation, and savor time at leisure in this splendid setting.
