Globus Tanzania The Serengeti & Beyond with Selous(QZE1)

13 days from Arusha to Dar es Salaam 
“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 five game drives where you may spot the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo. A full-day game drive in Ngorongoro Crater offers you the best possibility of seeing the rare black rhinoceros. Here we have arranged an exclusive bush breakfast on the floor of the crater, a truly memorable experience! You’ll also spend three nights in Selous Game Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Natural Site, which is untouched by mankind. Here you will explore the reserve on 5 game activities including game drives, game walks, and boat excursions!

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 Village 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 personalized service from start to end! So grab your camera and get ready for a thrill of a lifetime!

 Welcome to Africa! Hotel rooms are available for mid-afternoon check-in.
Day 2ARUSHA–TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK.
 Start today with a visit to the SHANGA WORKSHOP, a remarkable place dedicated to providing employment opportunities to Tanzanians with disabilities. Here, workers use recycled materials to make a variety of handicrafts. After lunch, drive south to TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK, where the savannah grasslands are dotted with baobab and acacia trees. Enjoy a GAME DRIVE en route to your lodge. (B,L,D)
Day 3TARANGIRE.
 Today features MORNING & AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES. The Tarangire River provides the park a permanent water source, which makes for great game viewing year round. This is highlighted by a large population of elephants. You can also see wildebeest, eland, zebra, and Cape buffalo congregate around water holes. Relax at your lodge during the heat of the day. This evening, stop for SUNDOWNER DRINKS as the sun sets over Lake Burunge. (B,L,D)
Day 4TARANGIRE–LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK.
 This morning, depart for LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK at the base of the Rift Valley escarpment. This small park is ecologically diverse, with groundwater forests, grassy plains, and alkaline Lake Manyara itself. Enjoy MORNING & AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES, with the chance to see elephant, giraffe, zebra, and Cape buffalo. The park is also home to the world’s largest concentration of baboon. (B,L,D)
Day 5LAKE MANYARA–TLOMA VILLAGE–NGORONGORO CRATER.
 Journey to the nearby village of TLOMA. Here, you will visit a [LF] LOCAL FAMILY’S HOME to learn more about the local Iraqw culture and their traditional way of life. Also, stop at a [LF] LOCAL PRIMARY SCHOOL to visit with the children and learn about the educational system in rural Tanzania. After lunch at beautiful Gibb’s Farm, continue on to the rim of NGORONGORO CRATER, which is part of the larger Ngorongoro Conservation Area. (B,L,D)
Day 6NGORONGORO.
 Descend into the crater, where an exclusive [LF] BUSH BREAKFAST has been arranged for you. Sip on a mimosa as you savor every moment of the memorable experience! Afterward, begin your FULL-DAY GAME DRIVE. Ngorongoro Crater is technically a caldera—the world’s largest unflooded one, in fact, at more than 2,000 feet deep with a floor covering over 102 square miles. Game viewing here is fantastic, as most of the animals stay in this area year round. You can see lion, Cape buffalo, hippo, elephant, and flamingo. This is also your best chance to see the rare black rhinoceros. A picnic lunch will be served in the crater. (B,L,D)
Day 7NGORONGORO–SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK.
 This morning, depart Ngorongoro Crater for SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK, Tanzania’s largest and most famous park. Home to the annual Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra, generally between late November and July, the Serengeti attracts visitors from around the world and is great for game viewing year round. After lunch at your lodge, embark on an AFTERNOON GAME DRIVE. (B,L,D)

NOTE:
The Great Migration is a natural event, and the exact arrival/departure of the migrating herds varies slightly from year to year.
Day 8SERENGETI.

Day 9SERENGETI.
 The Serengeti covers an area of roughly 5,700 square miles, so it is no surprise that the name comes from the Maasai word siringit, meaning “endless plains.” Continue exploring this vast park during MORNING & AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES. Tonight, join your traveling companions for a special [LF] FAREWELL BUSH DINNER and a [LF] TRADITIONAL MAASAI DANCE PERFORMANCE—the perfect way to end your safari! (B,L,D)

(B,L,D)
