As the home of Olduvai Gorge, the world’s most treasured paleontological site, it’s safe to say humans have been coming to Tanzania forever. So, where’ve you been? Seamlessly blending out-there access with stylish comfort, this trip brings you close to wonders like Lake Manyara, the Ngorongoro Crater, the plains of the Serengeti and the Big Five before returning you to a cozy safari lodge or comfort-minded tented camp. True, it’s not exactly the way homo erectus did it, but that’s what evolution is all about, no?
