The word "legendary" is defined as "remarkable enough to be famous". It's a word that fits Tanzania, whose expansive plains of the Serengeti is perhaps one of the most famous locations in the world. Other words used for legendary include glorious,great and unforgettable are just a few. And how they fit Tanzania!

Once you see Ngorongoro Crater from the rim it's hard to forget that spectacular view. And the line of wildebeest and zebra that stretch across the plains of the Serengeti as they search for fresh grass is simply glorious. These and many more memories await on our Legendary Tanzania safari.

Traveling by light aircraft along the way not only helps you spend more time at each destination but also provides simply stunning views of the plains as you fly above them. Stop in Tarangire where large herds of elephants joing wildebeest at the river for drinks of water. Then it's on to Ngorongoro where you spend the day exploring the crater floor. The crater hosts more than 25,000 animals include predators like lion, leopard and hyena.

The highlight of this safari is spending 4 nights in the Serengeti, split between 2 nights in Central Serengeti and 2 nights in northern Serengeti - perfect for following the annual migration of the wildebeest and zebras.

Along the way you'll stay in luxury camps in Tarangire and the Serengeti - and luxury lodge in Ngorongoro. These luxury tents are luxurious in every sense - large, comfortable beds, ensuite bathrooms with proper toilets and bush showers with plenty of hot water. Tents sit on platforms with private verandahs, perfect for spending time relaxing between game viewing.
