TRIP IS FULL: Tanzania - August 7-20, 2024

Tanzania – August 7-20, 2024 - $7,999 plus airfare. 

Join us for the trip of a lifetime to the eastern African country of Tanzania where we will visit the Ngorongoro crater (World Heritage site), the Great Rift Valley, and of course, the magnificent Serengeti.

There are over 1,100 bird species in Tanzania – many of which will be life birds for you. From sunbirds to ostriches, with flamingos in between, the diversity of species is amazing. Of course, birds are not the only thing we will be looking for. There will be elephants, lions, giraffes, hippopotamuses, rhinoceros, Old World primates, cheetahs, warthogs, wildebeest, leopards, jackals, hyenas, impalas, eland, gazellas, and numerous other antelope species – some in huge numbers.

When not looking at wildlife, we will be visiting local markets, stopping where the Leakeys discovered some of our earliest ancestors, and experiencing a Maasi village. At night, we will be staying at fantastic safari lodges and even doing a bit of “glamping”.

Our travel partners at Holbrook Travel have done a great job of minimizing travel time and helping us put together a trip that you’re sure to enjoy.
