Grab your safari hat, binoculars, and don’t forget your camera because your friends are not going to believe your stories from your African Safari in Tanzania!
Tanzania is a place that is accessible to any type of traveler and is perfect for the first-time traveler to Africa.
Straight out of the pages of a National Geographic Magazine, Tanzania offers ordinary people the chance to live like an explorer. This story-book journey is a combination of game drives through wildlife parks, and cultural experiences with tribal people who are living the same way their ancestors lived and have lived here for centuries.
The adventure begins in Arusha National Park and follows the Northern Circuit which encompasses the Ngorongo Crater Conservation Area, Serengeti National Park, and Lake Eaysi, and Tarangire National Park. We will explore wooded savannas, grasslands, and highland forest. Lodges are 4-star with delicious food and comfortable accommodations within the parks and protected areas. You may wake to the sounds of roaring lions. – No joke.
The magic of Tanzania, and the stuff of legends, is the Serengeti. As you drive through the vast expanse of grassland in a 4×4 safari jeep, you might find yourself humming tunes from the Disney cartoon, The Lion King. Massive herds of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles travel a route considered one of the largest migrations in the world. You may even find yourself getting a little teary-eyed at the intangible beauty you are witnessing.
Equally as impressive as the game parks and conservation areas is the interaction you will have with tribal communities like the Maasai, Hadzabes, and Datoga tribes. From pastoral nomads to traditional hunter-gatherers, you will feel like you have stepped in a time machine taking you back centuries as you learn about each tribe and participate in dancing and other cultural activities.
