We will embark on an eight-day safari starting in Arusha, Tanzania. Guided by expert local guides and a well-seasoned American guide, this all-inclusive safari will explore the Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Oldupai Gorge, while staying in luxury tented camps and lodges. We will visit the birthplace of humankind and a Maasai village. The eight-day safari in comfortable touring vehicles will maximize the infinite possibilities to explore the greatness of the east African savannah and experience, up close, lions, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, zebras, rhinos and much more.

Unlike most tours, which drive back to Arusha, we will maximize our time and fly at the end of our time in the Serengeti, directly to Zanzibar.

We will explore this amazing tropical island, enjoy the tropical beaches, snorkel in the reefs of the Indian Ocean and explore the spicefarms.

The 2000 year history of this archipelago has shaped the landscape and culture to become what it is today; white, coral sand beaches, spice plantations, exotic, urban Stone Town, and unique culture.

Join our small (less than 16 people), custom-designed African Safari trip planned for January 4 – 16, 2018. Striving to offer you a unique, retreat-like experience, our guides have a passion for travel and helping others connect their external encounters with the internal experience; creating a more meaningful adventure and expanding personal growth.
