THE ADVENTURE OF SAFARI
To live the unforgettable experience of the safari, we must move from Zanzibar to the near Tanzania, where the game drive is the main tourist activity in the country. Reaching Tanzania means taking advantage of a full immersion in nature: it is a journey of adventure and respect for the precious environmental richness that needs to be safeguarded.
The most impressive annual event to which you can witness during a safari in Tanzania originates in the Serengeti National Park: from here, huge herds of gnu head for greener pastures in Kenya, offering for the viewer a unique scenery. True land of the safari, Tanzania leaves marvel at the vastness of the plains that stretch out of sight of most of the territory. This portion of Africa offers the largest and wildest variety of fauna of the planet: in addition to the gnu, can be admired, in all their majesty, antelopes, lions, monkeys, cheetahs, gazelles and crocodiles. In addition to the classic photo safaris, Tanzania offers corners of pristine nature of the most evocative of the Dark Continent as the Serengeti and Kilimanjaro, or the wonderful crater of Ngorongoro, which make the country a popular destination for international tourists.
The office tours, upon request of our guests, will arrange the safari chosen by the support of local partner agencies. Possible changes, additions, or deletions to the excursion program will occur in case the weather does not allow a safe excursion.

SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK Serengeti in "maa" language, the language of the Masai, meaning "the great plain". The park is in fact a vast expanse of yellow grass, interrupted only by the rounded shapes of the kopje, small isolated hills. The Serengeti Plain is divided into several national parks: Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Nature Reserve, the Kenyan Masai Mara reserve. The Serengeti National Park includes a concentration of animal species that are among the highest in the world and it hosts almost a million and a half of herbivores.
CRATER NGORONGORO The Ngorongoro Crater is a volcanic cavity located in the plain of the Serengeti. Thanks to the good rainfall of the place, the water holes and streams that cover the area, the whole area is inhabited by numerous species of animals that mostly gather in the inner part of the crater where a large lake is located. The concentration of wildlife in the crater is impressive: it is estimated that it is inhabited by more than 25,000 large animals, as well as some rather rare species such as rhinos blacks, while there are not giraffes and impala. The Ngorongoro Crater is the only natural park which is not subject to the laws of the national reserves and has its own legislation, such as the Masai tribes have grazing rights in Ngorongoro and will therefore not be difficult to meet with their livestock.
LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK It consists of a long strip of land about 50 kilometres and wide up to 8 kilometres, this park is one of the smallest of Tanzania. It extends between the lake and the steep western slope of the Rift Valley. The park offers the opportunity of close encounters with numerous herds of elephants, colonies of baboons, gnu, zebras, giraffes, hippos and lions, as well as many varieties of birds, including the elegant flamingos.
TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK The Tarangire National Park is located one hundred kilometres from Arusha town and owes its name to the river that flows through it. The landscape is quite green: around the river there are extensive marshes and floodplains. The park hosts zebras, wildebeest and several species of gazelles, buffalo, giraffes, elephants, lions and cheetahs.
