Tanzania: The Serengeti & Beyond (QZ)

9 Day Tour from Arusha to Arusha

2021 Tour Details

Featuring exhilarating game drives through grasslands, woodlands, and swamplands—plus distinctive safari lodges and tented camps that blend into the living landscape, this Africa vacation was designed for those who like to take a walk—or a nap—on the wild side. Game drives through Tarangire, Lake Manyara, and Serengeti National Parks—as well as the vast, volcanic Ngorongoro Crater—offer an opportunity for up-close views of the “Big 5” (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo) as well as countless other majestic creatures. As you explore these mesmerizing parks, prepare to see zebra grazing, hippo bathing, elephants trumpeting and, if luck is on your side, cheetah sprinting. Marvel at Maasai Warriors jumping in celebration of life. There’s lots to fall in love with on this timeless Tanzania safari, including morning mimosas and sundowner drinks in the bush as you quench your thirst for knowledge and adventure.

Small-Group Discovery

Each Globus Africa safari tour is limited to an average of just 20 guests per departure. There’s always room to roam with extra space between you and other travelers—while still getting up close and personal to the experiences you’ve been dreaming of. Small-Group Discoveries include all the features of a traditional Globus escorted tour, complete with expert Tour Director, Safari Guide/Driver, and Local Guides who ensure that your health and safety is our top priority. A Small-Group Discovery African safari vacation is the perfectly sized tour—without the crowds.

We’ve prepared everything you need for the perfect vacation—from transfers to and from your hotel and included intra-vacation flights to expert Local Guides and included VIP sightseeing access to the world’s iconic sites. Your Globus Tour Director is always there to help you make the most out of your free time!

Accommodation Spotlight Centrally located in Serengeti National Park, the Mbuzi Mawe Serena Camp blends completely into the living landscape. A series of traditional domed rondavels (round huts) are widely spaced throughout the grounds, which are cooled by groves of acacia trees and watered by sparkling streams. On the very edge of the ridge is a vanishing horizon pool that looks out over the endless plains for which the Serengeti is named.

Escorting tours for more than 10 years

Living my dream...I am a member of the Maasai tribe and was raised by a missionary family near my native Ngorongoro. As a child I remember seeing safari vehicles with the red Globus sign and vowed that one day I would guide those safaris. Join me for an unforgettable adventure as I share with you my love of wildlife and insights on my unique culture and traditions.
