Travel provider: Gohagan & Company
During this 12-day journey of a lifetime, observe one of Earth’s greatest natural spectacles. Travel into the majestic grasslands of Africa’s premier safari destination during the annual Great Migration of vast herds of wildebeest followed by zebra, gazelle and Cape buffalo, and look for other wildlife including elephant, lion, cheetah and leopard.
Visit three of Tanzania’s finest game parks—Lake Manyara, Tarangire and the Serengeti—and Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a UNESCO World Heritage site, for immersive game drives. Watch Tanzania’s plains and patterns unfold when you fly from Arusha to Serengeti National Park aboard a privately chartered aircraft and spend three nights in the heart of the Serengeti surrounded by the herds of the Great Migration.
Stay in deluxe accommodations at Serena Safari Lodges and an authentic tented camp along the banks of Lake Manyara. An expert curator illuminates human prehistory at Oldupai Gorge, one of the most important paleoanthropological sites in the world.
