REGIONAL FLIGHT OPTIONS

A truly terrific touring ground, Tanzania boasts Africa’s highest mountain, largest lake, most ancient fossils, and most famous safaris. This tour takes you to witness the Great Migration from the elevated balconies of unique Bush Rovers

With abundant wildlife and breathtaking scenery from the Serengeti plains to the sands of Zanzibar, this Tanzanian tour begins in Tarangire, the country’s less famous, most surprising national park, named for the river that crosses it, studded with sturdy baobab trees and termite towers, and inhabited by eland and elephants, oryx and lions. The small but perfectly formed Lake Manyara National Park is beautifully scenic, its diverse ecosystems creating a landscape described by Hemingway as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa.”  Legendary Ngorongoro is the largest unbroken caldera on Earth, its prolific wildlife protected by 600m-high crater walls, its reaches encompassing the Olduvai Gorge, where fossil footprints date back 3.6 million years. The Serengeti is home to the phenomenal Great Migration of huge herds of wildebeest and zebra. Often billed as an annual event, it is actually a continuous circular movement around the Serengeti, and this innovative safari features Bush Rovers, re-positioned season by season, so that you can observe the spectacle away from the busiest viewing sites. And Lake Victoria concludes the tour, looking like a freshwater sea, peppered with islands, and brilliant for birdwatching.
