TANZANIA: THE SERENGETI AND BEYOND WITH ZANZIBAR - STONE TOWN (GLOBUS) - escorted by Christine Ward

image56

COMING SOON


11-day tour, starting March 3, 2021


  

“Karibu!” – welcome in Swahili. Looking for a new adventure? Have you dreamed of seeing wildlife in its native habitat? Do you desire to learn about new cultures? If so, this quintessential Tanzania safari is for you. Admire herds of elephant as they thunder across the savannah grasslands, see a pride of lions lounging in the African sun, and witness the free spirit of the birds flying overhead.
 

A highlight on this safari is Serengeti National Park, Tanzania’s largest park and home to the annual wildebeest migration. Here embark on five game drives where you may spot the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo. We have also arranged an exclusive bush breakfast, a truly memorable experience!
 

A full-day game drive in Ngorongoro Crater offers you the best possibility of seeing the rare black rhinoceros. Other stops include Lake Manyara National Park, home to the world’s largest concentration of baboon and Tarangire National Park, where a permanent water source draws in elephant, eland, zebra, Cape buffalo, wildebeest, and more. Tanzania offers much more than a great safari destination and this tour also gives you insights into the local culture. Visit a local family’s home in Tloma Village as well as a local primary school, where you’ll learn about the educational system in rural Tanzania. 


In Zanzibar, a walking tour of historic Stone Town introduces you to the famous spice markets and slave caves, a reminder of the not so distant past.
 

And like all Globus safaris you’ll be part of a small-group, with no more than 6 guests per vehicle and 20 guests total, ensuring personalized service from start to end! So grab your camera and get ready for a thrill of a lifetime!
