Detailed Description

Open the doors to the secret society of Tanzania on this 20-day excursion. The marvels of Tanzania are best revealed during the dry season of Tanzania’s winter months; however, the wet summer season still offers the intangible beauty that Tanzania presents to all those willing to venture into its depths. You will depart from your lush accommodation in Arusha and venture into the wild to see why those who have traveled through Tanzania feel such a connection to one another, to the land, and to the animals that roam through.

Travel to Kambi ya Tembo, a luxurious tented camp located near Tarangire National Park, for a three-day excursion through the area. The river here makes the land and wildlife thrive year-round. The scent of fresh running water fills the trees as Cape buffalo and lions linger along the riverbanks drinking at the water’s edge. Kilimanjaro looms over the plains; its snowcapped peak presents like  a cloud in the tranquil air. Whether canoeing in Lake Burunge or game driving through Tarangire National Park, you will watch the mysteries of Tanzania open up in front of your eyes.

Journeying to Ngorongoro Crater brings you into the lush stone carved accommodations of the Serena Ngorongoro Lodge, along with the active wildlife at the bottom of the crater. Clouds hover over the crater during the evening, leaving in the morning, and offering lush landscapes year-round. Escape to the less traversed Empakaai Crater where the lake sits on the crater floor and mirrors its surrounding trees before you depart for the unparalleled game drives of the Serengeti, where you will sleep among the vast plains while the world of the wildlife continuously revolves.

The latter part of your trip takes you to the relaxing and vibrant beauty of Zanzibar, where every and any option is available, from the history of the island’s spice trade, to a relaxing spa treatment that will revitalize your sense of adventure and urge you to dip your toes into the sea and snorkel around the lively coral reef. Unforgettable Africa does not sit quietly in your line of sight waiting for you to pay attention; it whispers in your ear and makes sure that you’re listening. Listen to its beauty. Listen to its history. Listen to its culture. Be let in on the secret.
