Nothing can top the romance and magic of a safari in Tanzania, a destination marked by its rolling hills and expansive plains, and home to elephants, wildebeest, zebra, lions, and more. Indeed, this East African country has a remarkable diversity of wildlife, seen up close in the stunning Ngorongoro Crater, home to some 25,000 species; in the Serengeti National Park, renowned for its annual migration of nearly two million wildebeest; and Tarangire National Park.
On our nine-day Northern Tanzania trip, part of Travel + Leisure’s bookable vacation program with luxury outfitter Butterfield and Robinson, you’ll get a chance to experience all of three of these places. We’ve combined traditional safari game drives with exciting nature walks (rather than standard driving-only safaris), allowing you far more time and access to up-close wildlife encounters. There are plenty of opportunities to spot the endangered black rhino, bull elephants, and the majesty of migrating wildebeest along the way.
Our editors have vetted this entire itinerary, and even selected a special activity for you: an evening game drive in Tarangire National Park.
