Treasures of Tanzania
View the abundance of birds at Lake Manyara National Park, search for the prolific game of the endless Serengeti, and stand in awe of the magnificent spectacle of the Ngorongoro Crater.
This is the ultimate Tanzanian itinerary and combines the very best of the country's breathtaking landscapes.
Manyara and its neighbour, Tarangire, are superb for elephant viewing throughout the year - Manyara even more so when the areas around the park begin to dry up during the winter months.
This is also a great itinerary for families. There are activities for children of all ages and plenty of adventure for the whole family.
There is a good chance of viewing the the annual Great Migration - an estimated three million antelope, mostly wildebeest migrate to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve.
