Best Of Tanganyika Safari Best Of Tanganyika Safari

5 Nights

A short safari with game viewing in some of the most popular safari destinations, located in some truly breathtaking locations.

First stop is the Tarangire National Park - home to the greatest concentration of elephants in Africa, continuing to the breathtaking Ngorongoro - the world's largest unbroken volcanic caldera whose steep sides form a natural enclosure for a wide variety of wildlife. An estimated 25,000 animals, including the 'big five' inhabit the interior of the crater.

Then onto the world-famous Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti is Tanzania's largest and best-known national park, with a massive concentration of migratory animals who move around the park according to the availability of food.
