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 have lived here for centuries.


The adventure begins in Arusha National Park and follows the Northern Circuit which encompasses the Ngorongoro 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.


Trip Highlights:

  • Experience  Semi-Luxury Safari Tent Camping in the Serengeti National Park and a variety of other unique lodges near national parks and conservation areas.
  • Go to sleep and wake to the sounds of the wild Serengeti.
  • Be moved as you witness one of largest migrations on Earth of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles.
  • See big cats including prides of lions and elusive leopards, and stealthy cheetahs.
  • Enter the Ngorongoro Crater, a 25 km wide dormant-volcano-bowlful-of-30,000-animals.
  • Dance with the Maasai, exchange stories with the Datoga women, and learn to shoot bow and arrows with the Hadzabe.
  • Explore the Olduvai Gorge, a site which influenced what scientists know about human evolution.
  • Opportunities for shopping for indigenous African handcrafts, Tanzanite, and art.

Another well run travel trip by Green Edventures!! The weather was beautiful and scenery was even better. Tara and our guide Jeanne had a quick solution whenever a problem came up. As usual I always felt safe and had a great time with the other women in the group who enjoy traveling! :)

This was an amazing experience for my son Gregory, he truly had the best time. The whole process to book was effortless and very organized,. The trip was beautiful, so much to see and learned. My son enjoyed his accommodations, he said the food was delicious and the activities engaging and fun. He loved swimming with the sharks. Our leader Mrs. Lowe is very professional, caring and attentive to every detail. We were so lucky to have Mrs. Lowe as our leader, she knows best! This is a lifetime experience!

Tara and Jeannie were amazing! This was an epic and well-planned trip. The food was excellent, and I loved that all the details were taken care of. I would recommend this trip to any woman who wants to travel to Alaska solo (or with a friend!) and wants to see the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness.

I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
