GLOBUS

Our first-class range of tours include more of everything you love, weaving in VIP access to the must-see sights and authentic experiences so you come away from your holiday having truly lived each place you visit.

“Karibu!” – welcome in Swahili. Looking for a new adventure? Have you dreamed of seeing wildlife in its native habitat? Do you desire to learn about new cultures? If so, this quintessential Tanzania safari is for you. Admire herds of elephant as they thunder across the savannah grasslands, see a pride of lions lounging in the African sun, and witness the free spirit of the birds flying overhead.

A highlight on this safari is Serengeti National Park, Tanzania’s largest park and home to the annual wildebeest migration. Here embark on three game drives where you may spot the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo. We have also arranged an exclusive bush breakfast, a truly memorable experience!

A full-day game drive in Ngorongoro Crater offers you the best possibility of seeing the rare black rhinoceros. Other stops include Lake Manyara National Park, home to the world’s largest concentration of baboon and Tarangire National Park, where a permanent water source draws in elephant, eland, zebra, Cape buffalo, wildebeest, and more. Tanzania offers much more than a great safari destination and this tour also gives you insights into the local culture. Visit a local family’s home in Tloma as well as a local primary school, where you’ll learn about the educational system in rural Tanzania.

And like all Globus safaris you’ll be part of a small-group, with no more than 6 guests per vehicle and 20 guests total, ensuring personalised service from start to end! So grab your camera and get ready for a thrill of a lifetime!

Things to note

All game viewing is done at your own risk. We will require a signed liability waiver prior to travel. We do not recommend this holiday to people with serious back problems, as it can be quite rough driving on/off road in/between game parks. Due to limited capacity on safari vehicles and flights, your suitcase must be soft-sided and cannot exceed 33 lbs, including hand luggage. Some minor changes in your daily itinerary may be expected due to wildlife migrations and viewing.

Small-Group Discovery – We never allow more than 20 travellers on our Small-Group Discovery holiday, allowing you to truly immerse yourself in the destination and local culture.

4-wheel drive safari vehicle, between destinations and for game drives, with a pop-up roof for easy game viewing and photography. We limit each vehicle to a maximum of six people, ensuring you’ll always have a window seat.
