Journey into the heart of East Africa and go off the beaten path to learn about the culture, people, and wildlife of Tanzania. Begin in the Serengeti, spending the days amidst untamed wilderness where lion, cheetah, warthog, and millions of hoofed animals roam. Travel to the lush and verdant Ngorongoro Crater, a massive caldera inhabited by rhinoceros, elephant, and black-maned lion. En route, visit Olduvai Gorge, the site of the Leakey family’s remarkable discoveries. Journey to Tarangire National Park, spend a day exploring its rugged landscapes whereit is also possible to see lion, leopard, giraffe, gerenuk, reedbuck, and even the rare fringe-eared oryx. Tarangire is also known for its large number of baobab trees. Marvel at a vast and unspoiled landscape under the equatorial sun and enjoy comfortable tented camps and small lodges, beautifully situated for their proximity to the seasonal concentrations of wildlife. This trip is timed to ideally coincide with the annual great migration.
