Tanzania: Heaven’s Wild Refuge
Hosted by Andria Heath, Executive Director
November 1 to 12, 2020
Discover infinite beauty as you follow in the historic footsteps of writers and explorers such as Ernest Hemingway and David Livingstone to Tanzania, where little has changed throughout the centuries. Discover the thrill of spotting wildlife in the wild in Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti: elephant, zebra, giraffe, black rhino, wildebeest and hippo, all under the watchful eyes of leopard, lion, cheetah and hyena. Each evening, share the day’s events while relaxing in luxurious lodges and tented camps. A magical crater, ancient baobab trees, the footsteps of early modern man, herds of beasts and graceful creatures set the scene for an exotic adventure with unforgettable memories.
