Tanzania Safari

When: March 05, 2018 - March 16, 2018 (iCal)

Description

 

“The trip surpassed our expectations. Each part of the experience stood on its own as exceptional.”

 

 

“The Great Migration.” The very words stir the soul and the imagination. On our 12-day Tufts Travel-Learn expedition, we’ll experience this incredible spectacle as few people ever have — by air and land, on a combination safari that’s unique. On daily game drives, we’ll follow vast herds of elephant, wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, and Cape buffalo, as well as magnificent lions, cheetahs, and leopards, and we'll get an amazing perspective on the African landscape from a privately chartered plane. There’s even an add-on option to take an early-morning balloon safari over the Serengeti. All told, we’ll visit four of the world’s top game parks. Between adventures, we’ll rest up in style at award-winning safari lodges, in one of the wildest places on Earth.

This legendary, small-group program has sold out for years. To avoid disappointment, be sure to book early!
