GLOBUS 2021: Kenya & Tanzania: The Safari Experience with Nairobi & Zanzibar (QBY)
17 Day Tour from Nairobi to Dar es Salaam
Africa conjures up dreamy images of mystical mountains, savanna grasslands, and endless plains, but for the adventure seeker, it's where the wild things are. The 'Big 5'-lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo await you on this ultimate safari through East Africa. Featuring unique lodges and tented camps, custom-made 4-wheel-drive safari vehicles, and exclusive meals in the bush, this Kenya and Tanzania tour promises larger than life experiences and countless memories. You'll savor the unique terrain and wildlife at seven renowned national parks, reserves, and conservancies, including the famous Maasai Mara National Reserve, and the vast, volcanic Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Beyond sightings of the 'Big 5,' be on the lookout for cheetah, wildebeest, crocodile, hippo, and rhino. On the tamer side, you'll also enjoy a visit to the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary as well as the endearing experience of meeting the local children at a primary school in Karatu. Feeding endangered giraffes at the Giraffe Center, meeting orphaned elephant calves at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and visiting the former home of Out of Africa author Karen Blixen are just a few highlights when you add Nairobi, Kenya's capital city and concrete jungle, to your tour of Africa. There's no better way to decelerate after an exhilarating vacation of game drives than with a breezy, island getaway. Add a Monograms package to Zanzibar to your tour of Africa for laidback sun, fun, and fare. Move too fast and the hospitable locals will offer the gentle reminder, 'Pole, pole!' meaning 'Slowly, slowly!'
