This 9-night itinerary combines the most iconic parks and destinations in Tanzania. Your first destination will be the most impressive and dramatic of landscapes – the Ngorongoro Crater. This is the largest caldera in the world and the drive down the crater walls is one of the most exhilarating safari experiences. On the crater floor, you will get the opportunity to see an array of animals including elephant, lion, buffalo, zebra, and potentially rhino. Depending on what time of year you travel, you will then either drive or fly to the Serengeti National Park to stay in a mobile tented camp for the next 3 nights. Witness the sound and sight of 2 million wildebeest and watch their movements, with lurking predators! Finish this classic Tanzania itinerary with 4 nights on the paradise island of Zanzibar, in one of the most beautiful lodges.
