Tanzania is wild and exciting, yet casual with an almost old-fashioned way of life. It's a place that makes you feel as if you have stepped back in time for a truly authentic safari.
This country is famous for having some of the best game viewing in Africa and is home to many unique destinations. The Serengeti, the world's most famous wildlife ecosystem, and the Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest unflooded volcanic crater, are two of the most celebrated areas in Africa and can be combined in one trip for a truly memorable experience. Tented camps and small intimate lodges with fabulous guides top it all off for the perfect safari experience. Just ask a few of our travelers!
"Fantastic. Wonderful. Amazing. Exhilarating. Beautiful. Awesome. Incredible. Life-changing. The longer I sit here, then longer list of adjectives I could write. Honestly this was the most superb trip, every detail so finessed, every experience so magical. [Robyn] and [her] colleagues put together the best trip—a trip of a lifetime."
