No matter how many times you watch them do it, you’ll never cease to be amazed by how a herd of elephants can simply, silently, melt away into the bush, disappearing with enigmatic nonchalance. But not before you’ve ventured close enough to take some magnificent pictures.
At Tarangire National Park you will witness the spectacle of great herds of these gentle giants frolicking in the swamp. Then you’ll drive off to see wonders like the Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara Park and the Serengeti.
Next, something completely different; the winding streets, immaculate beaches and historic atmosphere of the ancient spice island of Zanzibar.
