Tauck African Safari Tours
Africa's Big 5

Welcome to Safaris with Tauck

Africa's "Big Five" are among the wildlife that can be spotted on our classic safaris evoking expeditions of yesteryear... but with modern day touches such as night vision goggles that make wildlife viewing on night safari drives something special. Discover a time when the Great Rift Valley held the secrets of the origins of mankind... a place where the Serengeti and the Masai Mara harbor umbrella-like acacia tree and rocky outcrops known as "kopje"... and the circle of life unfolds around you.

On safari in Tanzania

Stories almost as old as the Earth itself await you... on safari in Tanzania with Tauck

Gliding in a hot air balloon high above the vast plains of the Serengeti, observing the "circle of life" below… a game drive and a picnic lunch in the wildlife treasure-trove that is Ngorongoro Crater, a volcanic caldera that some believe may have been the "Garden of Eden"… a visit to Oldupai Gorge, home to some of the earliest evidence of humans on Earth… Tauck experiences revealing the essence of Tanzania…

On safari in Botswana

An African adventure all its own... on safari in Botswana with Tauck

Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda

A once-in-a-lifetime encounter with endangered mountain gorillas... on safari in Rwanda with Tauck

On two new 2019 safaris in wildlife-rich game reserves in Tanzania and Kenya, you'll spend the last three nights of your journey in Rwanda – home to the last remaining mountain gorillas on Earth. After gaining insights on gorilla behavior at private lectures and a visit to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund Museum, you'll be ready to begin your gorilla trek. Imagine hiking into the wilderness with a private porter and an expert guide for a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with mountain gorillas in the wild… watching them interact with each other – and, if they so choose, perhaps with you!
