8 Day Soul of Tanzania Luxury Safari (1,905 $ )

Tanzania Safari Holidays and Travel Package is specifically designed to focus on and to increase your chance to see the great Serengeti wildebeest migration. WithTanzania Safari, the Serengeti areas in Tanzania are the best locations for the months of July to witness thousands of wildebeest spread across the plains grazing on the rich short grass plains. Predator action is at its peak with great sightings of cheetah, lion, hyena, and leopard and a very good chance to see adrenalin packed kills.

This is our most iconic itinerary as it represents what our company is all about. During this tour, you will have the chance, not only to visit all the parks of the northern safari circuit of Tanzania (including 3 nights in the Serengeti which is, for us, the ideal time-frame) but also have fascinating cultural experiences in lake Eyasi with the Hadzabe tribe.
