There's also a chance to reflect on Africa's amazing beauty and culture in Arusha.

Ready to see some amazing wildlife and experience Tanzania's wonderful culture? In this 11-day Northern Circuit safari, you will have a life-changing opportunity to see the Great Migration in Tarangire National Park and Serengeti National Park, a variety of animals in Lake Manyara National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater, but also reflect on the beginnings of humankind at the Leakey museum and archeological site at Ol'duvai Gorge, and tribal visits to see how culture has both changed and stayed the same for some Africans.
12-Day Tanzania Southern Circuit Safari
Tanzania's Southern Circuit offers a truly wild experience. We've scheduled you the luxury of multiple days in Ruaha National Park and Selous Game Reserve, which are both huge, unspoiled wildernesses with plenty of game.
15-Day Tanzania Northern and Western Safari
This is the safari of a lifetime. Enjoy Tanzania's rich, unspoiled wildernesses and abundant wildlife at Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park, and Tarangire National Park. But take the opportunity to learn about Africa's history and culture by visiting the Hadzabe tribe and the archeological site at Ol'duvai Gorge. For added luxury, enjoy two full days in Mahale Mountains National Park, where you can track chimpanzees, fish, and more.
5-8 Days Mt. Kilimanjaro Trek
Kilimanjaro offers the chance to scale to the "roof of Africa." The highest peak and most famous mountain in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro is a heavy challenge, more from the rigors of altitude than the actual hike itself. The climb takes hikers through thick forests and alpine grasslands, desolate rock faces and brilliant white glaciers.
4-Day Mt. Meru Trek
Located in Arusha National Park, trekking Mt. Meru is usually overlooked in favor of its bigger neighbor, Mt. Kilimanjaro. However, the sheer beauty of this hike makes it an attractive option for the discerning traveler. The landscape is particularly scenic, with the early parts of the trail passing through lush rainforests of fig trees, and the rest of the mountain's terrain ranges from jungle to forest to plains. Colubus monkeys scamper high in the canopy, and other wildlife sightings may include elephant, reticulated giraffe, zebra, dik-dik, lion, and cheetah.
4-Day Zanzibar Extension
DAY 1: STONE TOWN
Fly from Arusha to Zanzibar. In the afternoon, tour Stone Town, Zanzibar's old quarter. Stone Town is a fascinating maze of narrow streets and alleyways which lead you past numerous old houses and mosques, ornate palaces, shops and bazaars, and the slave quarters next to the Anglican Church. Arrive to the east coast of Zanzibar for dinner and overnight your lodge, luxury accommodations typical of Zanzibar excursions.
