Safari is the Swahili word for “journey.” A term once synonymous with hunters stalking herds of big game that roamed the vast plains, today, it has a new meaning. Guns have been replaced with high-power zoom lenses and “Big Five” trekkers encounter some of the most spectacular sights on earth. This once-in-a-lifetime adventure takes you to the East African nation of Tanzania, a coastal country renowned for breathtaking landscapes and amazing ecosystems. Each day unfolds with evocative images of the wild continent—giraffes and elephants lumbering across the open savanna, a stand of pink flamingos wading in a sun-drenched lake, and a pride of sleepy lions yawning under an acacia tree. Explore Tanzania’s best national parks from the comfort of its finest lodge accommodations—and create memories that will last a lifetime.
