Short Description

One of our personal favourites, this safari showcases the breathtaking scenery and the richness of wildlife in the world acclaimed parks of Tanzania’s northern circuit. Coupled with luxury accommodation this safari delivers the ultimate safari experience amidst the jaw dropping wildlife and landscape of Africa.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
