P2P Standard Safari B, 8 Days Northern Tanzania

This is a standard tour for a meaningful introduction to the people and wildlife of northern Tanzania. Tours to about four different tribal societies enable the visitor to interact with the local people and learn their history. For wildlife, preference is given to the two big names - Ngorongoro and Serengeti - but leaves options for the addition of Lake Manyara or Tarangire National Parks. The itinerary is designed in such a way that it can easily be supplemented with other programmes like Zanzibar, Pangani or climbing Kilimanjaro to complete a two-week safari in Tanzania. There are two samples for this programme - see here for alternative A.

Highlights: - Wildlife, Culture, Sightseeing & Babati
Price: $ 2,200 per person in a group of from 4 pax
