This classic Tanzania safari adventure in 2020 offers opportunities to see the Great Serengeti Migration of wildlife and go on game drives in Ngorongoro Crater. You’ll meet Tanzanian Maasai women and learn about their lifestyles while staying at Gibbs Farm and in comfortable safari camps. You’ll engage in fascinating one-on-one conversations with top safari guides, discovering the best sites for viewing African animals while learning about wildlife conservation in Tanzania and wildlife habitats and behaviors. Karibu Tanzania!
Begin your Tanzania safari adventure with a scenic flight to the Eastern Serengeti ecosystem, where you’ll enjoy an exciting stay in an airy and beautiful tent, or nyumba, perfectly placed to allow better views of passing zebras, elands, giraffes, exotic birds, and even rare wild dogs. The rustic comforts of your nyumba and full-service safari camp offer the quintessential African bush safari experience.
For centuries, the nomadic Maasai people have made the lands outside of the Serengeti their home. Learn firsthand about their culture by visiting them in a boma, a settlement of traditional huts, to meet Maasai women living there. It’s a precious opportunity to learn about their very different lives: raising kids in the remote villages, being one of multiple wives, their traditional, gender-defined domestic roles, and becoming entrepreneurs. An evening visit by Maasai warriors performing a traditional dance and an elder storyteller of Maasai folktales will be unforgettable highlights of the trip.
Friendships grow day to day through shared safari experiences with your fellow Tanzania adventurers. Walk with your AdventureWomen companions while sharing your excitement on a morning wildlife hike while you each point out your own discoveries from spotting silver-backed jackals and grazing impala to learn tracking techniques together. If the paw prints stop near an acacia tree…look up fast! You just might see a snoozing leopard. Then find out which of your new AdventureWomen friends has the sharpest eyes on a very special night game drive as you watch for nocturnal aardvarks, porcupines, and spring hares.
As you drive through the majestic Serengeti National Park, you’ll quietly observe zebras, lions, elephants, and cheetah wandering the iconic plains. You’ll enjoy three days of the best wildlife viewing on earth, including sightings of the Great Serengeti Migration that involves over two million adult and juvenile wildebeest and other grazing mammals. An optional sunrise hot-air balloon ride will offer breathtaking views of the Serengeti Plains and an elegant full breakfast with a champagne toast right in the bush when you land.
End your journey in the Ngorongoro Highlands, a lush hilly region of Tanzania that holds the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater. Visit the crater floor, a self-contained ecosystem that holds over 30,000 unique animals, including all of Africa’s “Big Five” (lions, cape buffalo, elephant, black rhinoceros and leopard). A special treat for those who spot a rhinoceros as rhinos can be a bit shy! Gourmet meals and stunning accommodations at award-winning Gibb’s Farm are a perfect way to cap off your adventure-filled safari in Tanzania, a classic African journey no Adventure Woman should ever miss!
Experience the joys of camping in the African bush to Gibbs Farm, soak in a magical sunrise on the Serengeti, and enjoy thrilling safari jaunts on game drives to see Tanzania’s most majestic creatures roaming free!
