Tour Overview


The perfect introduction to the bounties of East Africa, our 13-day Tanzania tour features the cultural and natural wonder of Tanzania, a country that stands out as one of the few remaining destinations that can still provide an authentic safari experience, and Zanzibar, an exotic island paradise brimming with romance and history. We enjoy a brief, three-day foray into Kenya to find adventure in the capital city, Nairobi -- once a backwater frontier town and today a bustling, modern metropolis that numbers among Africa's largest and most interesting cities -- and Amboseli National Park, where we see red dust-covered elephants and plains game roaming the plains. Ngorongoro Conservation Area is our first stop in Tanzania, a protected area considered by some as the eighth wonder of the world due to its blend of diverse landscapes, wildlife, tribal peoples and historic sites. We see back and white colobus monkeys and bushbuck in highland forest parks and descend deep into the UNESCO Heritage Ngorongoro Crater, where we find the 'Big Five,' gazelle, zebras and hippos. Pressing onwards, nowhere conjures up so vivid an image at the mere mention of the name like our next Tanzanian destination: the Serengeti. That said, flights of the imagination could in no way even begin to convey the magic of a wildlife adventure in the Serengeti, a place whose very name has come to represent the epitome of safari experiences. Roaming over the grasslands and sweeping savannahs of the Serengeti is a more diverse and abundant range of animal than can be found in any other location on the planet and a trip here is a once-in-a-lifetime event never to be forgotten. Before heading to Zanzibar, we visit archaeological sites that bear evidence of hominid existence over two million years ago and revel in the bounteous beauty of Lake Manyara National Park. Our Zanzibar leg of the tour encompasses exploration of religious and historic sites of Stone Town, a settlement said to be the only functioning ancient town in East Africa and one that has changed little over two centuries, viewing rare endemic flora and fauna in natural forest reserves, reclining on white-sand, coral-fringed beaches and embarking on a spice tour in paradise.
