Begin your 15-day journey in Arusha and set out on an afternoon game drive in Arusha National Park for your first taste of Tanzania’s unparalleled game viewing. Enjoy guaranteed window seating in safari vehicles throughout the trip. Explore Ngorongoro Conservation Area, wildlife haven and home to the semi-nomadic Maasai people, whom we visit. Descend to the floor of magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO site and at 100 square miles the world’s largest intact and perfectly formed volcanic caldera. Visit the 31-mile Olduvai Gorge, the “cradle of humanity.” Embark on game drives in the vast Serengeti where you have the chance to see some – or all – of Africa’s “Big Five,” along with other plains animals and some 500 species of birds. Fly to tropical Zanzibar, Tanzania’s semiautonomous Indian Ocean archipelago with a storied history. Continue to Saadani and enjoy a variety of game-viewing activities at the deluxe Saadani River before concluding the tour in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s largest city.
