Tour Highlights

This African safari is the experience of a lifetime. Follow the Great Migration, a natural phenomenon where over a million wildebeests and hundreds of thousands of zebras and gazelles migrate north each year.

This 9-day adventure through Tanzania showcases the annual migration that has made Serengeti National Park so famous around the world.

 

Begin in Arusha, which sits at the base of Mount Meru near famous Kilimanjaro. A sprawling city that thrives off safari tourism, Arusha is also a diplomatic hub that holds the headquarters of the East African Community.

 

Near Arusha is Tarangire National Park, which has the second highest concentration of wild animals after the Serengeti. During the Great Migration, animals crowd the park, eager to drink from the Tarangire River that divides the park in two. During the dry season, Tarangire boasts the largest group of elephants on the planet. It’s also home to the magnificent baobab trees, which soar above the African plains with their iconic clustered tops and smooth bark.
