7-day Tanzania Under Canvas

This safari takes in three of Tanzania’s great wildlife regions – The Serengeti National Park – where life in the park centers on the triangular trek of several million hooves. This movement never stops, as the animals constantly seek out new grazing pastures. Ngorongoro Crater one of the wonders of the world, it is difficult to give a fair description to the enormity and beauty of the Crater and Tarangire National Park – a delightful, untamed gem of a park. By using the combination of Dunia Camp and Olakira Camp for the start of this safari means that you will be in the best locations for viewing the wildebeest migration regardless of the time of year that you travel.
