Experiences of a lifetime

Embark on a grand adventure within Tanzania’s most renowned game reserves and enjoy the safari experience of a lifetime.

Have an opportunity to observe Africa’s Big Five – elephant, leopard, lion, rhinoceros, and buffalo – where they live, in their natural habitats. One of our most popular trips immerses you in the Earth Journeys experience, featuring custom-made BBC Earth on-tour film vignettes and other select BBC Earth touches. 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, the spice bazaars of Stone Town and one of mankind’s most important archaeological sites... travel by safari vehicles within Serengeti National Park, 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.

A picnic lunch in Ngorongoro Crater

Game drives and a picnic in Africa's original "Garden of Eden"

Believed by many to have been Africa's original "Garden of Eden," Ngorongoro Crater ranks among the world's largest calderas, and contains one of the oldest and most diverse ecosystems on Earth. Within this dormant volcano's walls lie short grasslands, swamps, forests and a freshwater lake – all of which inspire a continuous parade of migrating wildlife. You'll not only embark on a game drive in this "lost world," but a private picnic lunch inside the crater will be a highlight of your trip.

Private cruise on a traditional dhow

Day 9

Sailing off on a dhow for an "Indian Ocean Safari"

Dhows – traditional, handcrafted Arabian sailboats – have sailed the waters of the Indian Ocean and the Zanzibar archipelago for centuries, trading and fishing their way from one port to the next. Set out to sea aboard a dhow on a private cruise for an "Indian Ocean safari" – keeping your eyes peeled for dolphins frolicking in the waves. Cast anchor off a beach for lunch in a paradise of white sands and turquoise sea... and perhaps swimming and snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters off beautiful coral reefs.

Kirawira Tented Camp

Nights 6 and 7

Edwardian grandeur on the Serengeti plains

Sitting on a hilltop overlooking the vast plains of the Serengeti, Kirawira Tented Camp is patterned after the classic African hunting camps of the Edwardian era. Offering amazing views of the endless savanna and the parade of wildlife passing through it, your spacious en suite tent is raised on a wooden platform, and features furnishings evoking the grand style of a century ago.

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.
