8 days Tanzania  family safari is expertly crafted to offer the ultimate experience for families with children.

Our family safaris are thoughtfully scheduled to provide ample time for activities like walking, swimming, and playing. We understand the varying needs of families, and depending on the age of your children, the program can be tailored accordingly. For instance, if you are traveling with kids aged 13-18 years, a visit to a vocational school for former street children can be a truly eye-opening and unforgettable experience.

Day 6 : Serengeti National Park - Ngorongoro Conservation

On this day we suggest a very early wake up in order to do an early morning game drive (when the animals are more active) and see one of the best sunrises you’ll ever witness.
After the game drive, we will return to the camp for a rewarding brunch and then we’ll proceed to Ngorongoro, the 8th Wonder of the Natural World. The crater spreads for 102 sq miles and has 2,000 ft high walls, making it virtually Noah’s ark and inhabiting almost every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa. It’s one of the very rare locations in the whole continent where you can witness the black rhino. The concentration of African wildlife is the greatest on the continent. The crater has a river, several swamps, a soda lake with a great concentration of flamingos, a forest and open plains. It’s also famous for its elephants which are the largest in the world and have huge tusks. This is due to the rich mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses
