Critters & Culture Safari
February 13, 2023 – February 24, 2023
GRAB YOUR CAMERA, PASSPORT, AND SENSE OF ADVENTURE FOR 12 GLORIOUS DAYS IN ONE OF THE WILDEST PLACES ON EARTH!
This fully-escorted safari begins the moment you touch down in Tanzania, and continues until it’s “wheels up” once more! Your USA-based tour leader (Susie Langley) and her hand-picked guides/drivers will accompany you throughout the safari, eliminating the mystery and guesswork associated with an adventure of this caliber.
Upon arrival, you’ll spend your first night at the beautiful Rivertrees Country Lodge in Arusha, before climbing into the custom-designed safari vehicles that will take you safely into the wild to thoroughly explore two world-famous National Parks (Tarangire and Serengeti), one UNESCO World Heritage site (Ngorongoro Crater/ Highlands), and the lush, verdant wildlife playground known as Ndutu! Tanzania always delivers the wildlife! Our team will do everything they can to show you the Great Migration or help you find and check off each of “The Big 5.”
And, while that describes the Critters side of the equation, the Culture side is equally amazing. We’ll leave the National Parks and wilderness areas behind to venture into the Great Rift Valley. Here, our goal will be to closely interact with two important tribes (Hadzabe and Datoga), with the help of our local interpreter and hopefully offer guests a chance to join the Hadzabe hunters on their morning hunt. These tribes, the local children, and our Tanzanian hosts you’ll meet along the way will collectively steal your heart!
We will even stop for lunch at the Olduvai Gorge to learn about the important archeology that was discovered in (and continues to flow from) this very spot on earth. It is nicknamed The Cradle of Mankind, and it is a fascinating stop over on the way to the Serengeti!
And if you think you’ll be “roughing it” on this tour, think again! The itinerary and accommodations on this tour include stays at the Ngorongoro Farmhouse and a number of other very well-appointed tented camps and safari lodges throughout your journey. Everywhere we go, fresh linens, comfortable beds, and delicious chef-prepared meals will have you purring! I guess you can say that this safari gives “Creature Comforts” a whole new meaning!
