Tanzania Safari

Oct 09-20, 2020

12 days | Tanzania | alumni UBC Travel Club

Join us in Tanzania to witness some of Africa’s most extraordinary animal spectacles in iconic safari destinations. The Serengeti Ecosystem represents the intersection between wild savanna ecology and modern conservation – it supports the largest intact migration of mammals on the planet, ancient habitation by our human ancestors, and modern conservation challenges.

Begin Arusha, a modern town on the slopes of Mount Meru, before making our way to Tarangire National Park to watch the behaviour of large herds of African Elephants feeding among the baobab trees. Spend time in the natural amphitheatre of the Ngorongoro Crater to observe the “Big Five” African animals in the crater floor. A cornerstone of our safari will be our time in the Serengeti where you’ll have incredible close-up views of Plains Zebra, Thompson’s and Grant’s Gazelle, cheetahs, giraffes, and some of the over 350 recorded bird species which collectively contribute to what has been called “one of the world’s greatest wildlife spectacles.”

During game drives, we’ll travel in six-seater pop-top Land Cruisers. Everyone has a window seat (and a sliding window) for unrestricted viewing. Each vehicle is driven by one of our team of expert local naturalists, who take great pride in sharing their heritage and their vast knowledge of the wildlife and habitats we encounter.

We’ll be staying in two wonderful tented camps in the Serengeti - these pristine areas offer unparalleled game viewing. Experience traditional ‘under canvas’ accommodation with comfortable beds, ensuite flush toilets, and a shady verandah to relax and watch the spectacle before you. There is superb food, a cosy campfire for sundowners, and congenial company.
