Tanzania Trails

A 7-Day Wildlife Safari through Northern Tanzania

The perfect introduction to Tanzania!  On this 7 day safari, you'll explore the highlights of Tanzania's northern parks, each with strikingly diverse landscapes and wildlife.

Your journey begins with Tarangire National Park, famous for a landscape dotted with baobab trees and large herds of elephants.  Continue on to the Serengeti, arguably the most famous wildlife park in the world, where you'll feel lost in the vast open plains filled with millions of wildebeest, zebra, and other wildlife.  Then it's on to the equally famous Ngorongoro Crater, an enormous caldera set in the stunning volcanic highlands.  You're journey ends with a game drive in Lake Manyara Park along the Great Rift Escarpment where thousands of flamingos breed in the caustic lake and lions are known to climb trees!

This safari has scheduled departures departing every Saturday from Arusha and guaranteed with a minimum of 2 people.  You'll stay in small, independently owned lodges, permanent camps, and classic luxury tented camps.
