Tanzania Private Safari
“Lions, and tigers, and bears! Oh my!” Oh wait…in Africa you won’t see bears and tigers. But you will see lions, and elephants, and hippos, and giraffes, and rhinos, and gazelles, and much more! And no one brings you Africa like Monograms! On this 9-day private safari, we’ve arranged your choice of accommodations, almost all of your meals (daily breakfast, eight lunches, and seven dinners), game drives, and transportation between destinations (except intra-vacation flights). Plus, Monograms has arranged for you to have a driver/guide throughout your vacation, someone local who knows the land and wildlife, and can share insider secrets with you on life in Tanzania. The private vehicles we’ve arranged throughout your vacation are 4-wheel-drive safari vehicles that carry a maximum of six people and feature a pop-up roof for easy game viewing and photography. Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Arusha, Tanzania, where we can pick you up at the airport and escort you to your hotel. From there, we’ve arranged transportation for you to Tarangire National Park, where you will have four game drives to see elephant, wildebeest, eland, zebra, and Cape buffalo that congregate around the water holes. We’ll then take you to Ngorongoro Conservation Area, stopping first in Lake Manyara National Park, where you may see elephant, giraffe, and Cape buffalo in the groundwater forests, grassy plains, and alkaline Lake Manyara itself. Lake Manyara National Park is also home to the world’s largest concentration of baboons.Ngorongoro Conservation Area is home to Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest un-flooded caldera. On your full-day game drive here, you may see lion, Cape buffalo, hippo, elephant, flamingo, and maybe even the rare black rhinoceros. From Ngorongoro, we’ll transfer you to Serengeti National Park, Tanzania’s largest and most famous park and home to the annual wildebeest migration. In your three game drives here, we’ll be on the lookout for the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, elephant, and rhino. Have your camera ready because there’s also an abundance of other animals, including cheetah, giraffe, gazelle, and eland. And did we mention that in addition to all of these game drives, we’ve made your life easier by securing a day room for you at a hotel in Arusha at the end of your trip? Even when it’s time to say goodbye, we’ve handled all the details, so you’ll be able to wait in comfort before transferring to the airport for your late-evening flight. Between the game drives we’ve arranged, the private transportation we’ve included, the hotels and lodges we’ve booked, and the driver/guide we’ve arranged, the only thing for you to do is to grab your camera and enjoy this spectacular experience. With the time and stress saved by not having to figure out for yourself where to go and how to get from one park to the next, you’ve got yourself a vacation of a lifetime!
