The ideal solution for travellers short on time but who want the entire northern Tanzania safari experience, this 7-day tour begins with the giants of Tarangire National Park – elephants and baobab trees – before moving on to the panoramic views from a lodge overlooking Lake Manyara. The already impressive game viewing then moves up a division into the heavyweights: the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater between them can promise a wealth of wildlife ranging from vast herds of migrating wildebeest in season to big cats, wild dogs, rhinos and elephants.
It is an overland tour: you sit back in the rugged comfort of a 4X4 vehicle specially designed for safari, complete with large windows and a pop-up roof for easy photography. A professional guide takes care of the driving between destinations and conducts game drives, opening up the secrets of the landscape and offering insights into both the wildlife and various cultures of the area.
You stay at selected lodges and tented camps that offer great value for money without sacrificing comfort. All accommodations are en suite and have electric light and battery recharging facilities - some also have swimming pools, Wi-Fi and even a massage therapist if you really feel like spoiling yourself.
