This Tanzania Highlights Safari was designed for a mother and daughter who wanted a unique safari experience on a relatively short trip. We sent them to some of Tanzania’s best lodges to experience the highlights of Tanzania, including safaris in the famous Tarangire and Serengeti National Parks and in Ngorongoro Crater.

They began their Tanzania Highlights Safari with 3 nights at the luxurious Tarangire Treetops Lodge.  They spent their time there exploring the Tarangire National Park. The park is most popular for its large elephant herds and mini-wildlife migration that takes place during the dry season which sees about 250,000 animals enter the park.

After that, they transferred to the Serengeti, where they started their game drives in the magnificent Serengeti National Park, most famous for the Great Migration of wildebeest to the plains of Kenya. After an exciting day looking for the Big 5 on safari, they arrived at Serengeti Pioneer Camp, where they were greeted with cold drinks and shown to their comfortable room with a private deck overlooking the African plains.

The next day, they enjoyed an early breakfast while watching the stunning sunrise over the Serengeti. They went for an early morning game drive to see the giraffes, lions, wildebeest, and more at their most active time of day, then ate lunch at the lodge before setting out on another game drive in the evening.

Next on their Tanzania Highlights Safari, they made their way to Ngoronogoro Crater area, an oasis that is home to rhinos, hippos, zebras, gazelles, and much more. They arrived at Elewana The Manor in time for a scrumptious lunch and relaxing for the balance of the day.  The next day, they enjoyed more game drives with their expert guide to see the unique wildlife of Africa up close in the pristine park. Finally, their Tanzania Highlights Safari came to an end. After breakfast, they were transferred to Kilimanjaro International Airport to begin the trip home.
