Tour description provided by G Adventures

Go beyond four wheels and discover the many modes of exploring Tanzania's great outdoors. This eight-day tour is built for adventurous travellers who prefer a dose of adrenaline with their exploration. Canoe-safari through Momella Lake and spot hippos, giraffes, and water birds in their natural habitats, and hike into (and out of) an extinct volcanic crater. Of course, you'll have two days to explore the Serengeti in a 4x4, leaving your hands free for photo ops along the way (because it wouldn't be a trip to Tanzania without the safari photos to prove it).
