TANZANIA: SAFARIS OF OLD
Located in central East Africa, with its eastern border touching the warm Indian Ocean, Tanzania is renowned for its classic and luxurious safari camps in the vast Serengeti National Park. The Great Migration is a major drawing card, attracting wildlife enthusiasts and photographers from around the world. A peaceful hot air balloon safari above the game-rich Serengeti plains is a once in a lifetime experience, the perfect way to absorb the vastness of this pristine wilderness area.
WITNESS HISTORICAL SITES & UNDENIABLE NATURAL BEAUTY
Tanzania is home to two World Heritage Sites, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The Ngorongoro Crater is also hailed as one of the natural wonders of the world, an awe-inspiring sight that every traveller must witness at least once in their lifetime. This vast crater shelters an estimated 25 000 large mammals.
In northern Tanzania, in the eastern Serengeti plains, Olduvai Gorge is a 30 km (19 mile) ravine in the Great Rift Valley. Commonly referred to as the “Cradle of Humankind”, this gorge is one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world and has been instrumental in furthering our understanding of early human evolution.
Africa’s largest lake, Lake Victoria, is a birdwatcher’s paradise. Many lodges in the Serengeti offer day trips out to this immense lake, where guests can spot the many water birds or enjoy a leisurely fishing expedition.
With its world-famous landscapes, renowned wildlife and elegant safari lodges and charming camps, Tanzania is the perfect place for a classic safari adventure.
