Visit four of Tanzania’s finest game parks—Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire—including three nights in the heart of the Serengeti. Begin your days at first light with an early morning game drive, when nocturnal animals conclude their foraging and the grazers of the plains begin theirs. Depart on a second game drive as the daylight gives way to dusk, the remarkable glow of the setting sun illuminating the African wilderness. By way of a four-wheel-drive land cruiser, descend into the impressive 12-mile wide Ngorongoro Crater, a unique conservation area enclosed within a prehistoric caldera; a remarkable sanctuary for wildlife, it is home to the black rhinoceros, eland, gazelle, lion and over 500 species of birds. Discover the “cradle of mankind,” Oldupai Gorge, one of the most important paleoanthropological sites in the world. Visit a typical Maasai village, where Tanzanians dressed in colorful traditional clothing are eager to share their culture, and observe firsthand Tanzania’s educational system during a stop at Kibaoni Primary School.

In addition to game drives, fly by chartered private aircraft, an exceptional perspective from which to view the sweeping African landscape; stay in deluxe, award-winning Serena Lodges, each ideally located for optimal wildlife observation; and join an expert safari guide on game drives who will offer insight into Tanzania’s ecosystem as you follow the habitual patterns of the “Big Five” — African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard, lion and rhinoceros.
