During this 12-day journey of a lifetime, observe one of Earth's greatest natural spectacles by land and air—the best way to experience a safari in Tanzania. Travel into the majestic grasslands of Africa's premier safari destination during the annual Great Migration of vast herds of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle and Cape buffalo, and see wildlife including elephant, lion, cheetah and leopard. Visit four of Tanzania's finest game parks—Tarangire, Lake Manyara and the UNESCO World Heritage sites of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater—for spectacular game drives. Spend three nights in the heart of Serengeti National Park surrounded by the herds of the great migration, and enjoy a unique perspective over Tanzania's plains when you fly from Serengeti to Arusha aboard a privately chartered aircraft. Stay in deluxe Serena Safari Lodges and a comfortable tented camp in Tarangire. An expert curator illuminates human prehistory at Oldupai Gorge, where the Leakey family famously discovered 1.8-million-year-old human fossils.
