6 Days Tanzania Big Five Safari

6 Days Tanzania Big Five Safari

Overview

Each year, across the gold brushed plains of the Serengeti hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra meld into one long unbroken chain of animals moving across the plains with but a single purpose…to follow the rains to greener grasses. This ritual has been re-enacted for millennia. Our own human history tracks back to the stony footsteps of our early ancestors at Olduvai Gorge. In addition to the legendary Serengeti, Tanzania offers such gems as Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro; the largest wildlife sanctuary, Selous; and deepest lake, Tanganyika. The Ngorongoro Crater is unique in all the world, an ancient caldera that looks like a giant bowl filled with a hearty selection of nearly every type of East African animal. To the north lie the lush landscapes of Lake Manyara, famed for superb birdlife, and nearby Tarangire National Park offers breathtaking views of the Masaai Steppe and the mountains to the south. Southern Tanzania is Old Africa at its finest. Its remote national parks – Ruaha, Katavi, Mikumi and Udzungwa Forest, often called the “African Galapagos,” yield priceless rewards of spectacular solitude and closeness to nature rarely experienced anymore. The Southern Highlands offer the chance to learn about life in the country at a private estate. Miles of white sand beaches on the islands of Zanzibar invite relaxation. Today, private conservancies are leading the way in stepping up to the challenges of sustainability as more travellers begin to discover this tantalizing safari destination. Big Five endorses the use of private conservancies as they work to protect Tanzania’s exceptional wilderness regions while at the same time offering unprecedented opportunities for health, education and employment to local communities and outstanding safari experiences to our guests.
