Tanzania: Serengeti to Zanzibar

Introducing Earth Journeys... Created by Tauck and BBC Earth

2015 Prices From $6,095 plus on-tour air for 12 Days - Tauck World Discovery

New for 2015 – embark on a grand African safari with Tauck and BBC Earth... in some of Tanzania’s most renowned game reserves and enjoy the safari experience of a lifetime. You'll have an opportunity to observe Africa’s Big Five – elephant, leopard, lion, rhinoceros, and buffalo – where they live, in their natural habitats. With the aid of infrared camera traps, night goggles and thermal imaging, you'll also experience their nocturnal lives, revealing what would normally be hidden in darkness. Following your African safari, your journey concludes on the tropical island archipelago of Zanzibar. Enjoy many different types of experiences on this journey, from soaring high above the Tanzanian savannah aboard a hot air balloon to sailing aboard a traditional dhow on the Indian Ocean off the coast of Zanzibar. Experience ancient, stunning landscapes, local villages, the spice bazaars of Stone Town and one of mankind’s most important archaeological sites... travel by safari vehicles within Serengeti, and Tarangire national parks, plus Ngorongoro Crater... and stay in luxury safari lodges, tented camps and a resort overlooking the sea for an in-depth, up-close African safari experience.

The Tauck Difference

This trip was the best experience I’ve ever had on vacation. Our Tauck Director was incredible – she saw to every detail & the guides and drivers were fantastic. The itinerary was fabulous, the hotels were perfect and the meals scrumptious. The people of Tanzania are so warm and friendly! This trip will always be in my heart!
