Detailed Description

Africa is filled with excellent wildlife experiences, but some wildernesses are more impressive and more unique than others. The best are those that are difficult to access by road, and ecosystems that reflect animal worlds that have remained unchanged for millennia. You can visit them and find lions and leopards savoring seasonal feasts. You can also witness the great wildebeest migration, and the vast, open savannah, where elephant herds kick up dust, and astonishing scenes unfold at watering holes. You can descend into the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera to find 25,000 wild mammals and nature’s imperfect balance. Then, you can sit back at a luxurious camp and watch the animals continually pass.

Tanzania is home to some of the world’s ultimate wildlife destinations and experiences. The diversity is astonishing, and the animal abundance is beyond what anyone can imagine. The country’s best four destinations are spread across the country, and you can spend many days traveling between them on bumpy, uncomfortable roads. You can also fly. With this fly-in safari, you will be completely immersed in the wilderness, hopping between destinations and small camps that are perfectly suited to senior travelers. It is an excellent route for a first-time East Africa safari and will be packed with wildlife complexity and comfort, thanks to light aircraft, superb camps, and the best private guides.

The focus of your safaris will be on authenticity. You do not need long game drives to see it all. Instead, your private guides will lead short and slow drives, so you can fully explore the diversity and subtlety. This is an adventure, but to spend a week in the African wilderness is also one of the world’s most tranquil travel experiences. By disconnecting from your everyday, you can connect with nature. After landing in Dar es Salaam, you will fly directly to Ruaha for two nights on the vast and arid savannah, where animal encounters are clustered around watering holes and the Ruaha River.

Next, you will fly to the Selous Game Reserve, which will provide you with new perspectives because you will be cruising on the river and will have the opportunity for short game walks. The Serengeti will then cultivate sightings of the biggest herds and most plentiful big cats. Ngorongoro is like a microcosm of the other destinations because it is packed into a volcanic caldera, which will prove to be a fitting finale to your one-week Tanzania safari. You will fly to these four destinations to enjoy a profusion of wild animals, an exceptional diversity of species, and so many of the scenes that you may only think exist in wildlife documentaries. You will have stunning camps that provide comfort, all the necessary amenities, and a continuous immersion in nature. Best of all, you will be encouraged to explore slowly.
