There is something special about falling asleep while listening to lion roar and hyena call, the sounds of the African bush at night. Then, you awake to the chorus of birds starting even before the sun crests the horizon. It’s magical and what safari in Africa is all about. This safari takes you across Northern Tanzania, visiting the best national parks along the way where elephant will surround your vehicle, lion will saunter past you and leopard will watch you from their perch in the trees.

Day 2 - 4: Manyara Ranch Conservancy Formed in partnership with the African Wildlife Foundation, Manyara Ranch protects a critical wildlife corridor between Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks.
