The Best Scavenger Hunt Ever

Wildlife abounds—from snoozing lions to the unexpected stampede of wildebeest. Visit Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park in search of elusive cats and endemic birds. The Tanzania Big 5 list traditionally includes the lion, leopard, elephant, Cape Buffalo and rhino; however, there are other fives like the giraffes, zebra, dik-diks, flamingo and waterbucks that will leave your head on a perma-swivel! It’s the best scavenger hunt ever; Serengeti National Park has over 500 species of birds alone!


Game Drive in Three National Parks

Stay at a 100% Women-operated Camp

Experience the wonder of Dunia Camp, the only all female-run camp in the Serengeti! The accommodations on this trip are a balanced blend of traditional safari and luxury in tented suites, panoramic lodges and dome tents at the fly camp in the wild savannah. Everywhere, the sounds of the African night will lull you into a deep sleep. At Mama Anna’s AGAPE co-operative, we learn cheesemaking and honey harvesting secrets and have the best cup of coffee in town—after having a turn at sifting, pounding and roasting the beans over a fire!

The safari was everything I had dreamed a safari would be. We saw so many animals that we lost count. We stayed in those great safari tents and a fabulous high-end lodge in the Serengeti. We saw the traditional Maasai way of life and walked across the grasslands with our Maasai guide and our ranger. Absolutely a trip of a lifetime!”
