This short safari is the perfect solution if you are looking for an exciting and authentic safari experience, but are either pressed for time or are not keen on spending many days in a car. You will visit two of northern Tanzania’s famous national parks:
- Tarangire, famous for its huge elephant herds – reportedly one of the largest populations in the world – and its magnificent baobab trees, many of which are said to be more than 1,000 years old!; and
- The Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the Big Five.
For the few days you will spend with us, you will leave Tanzania with unforgettable memories!
