Wildebeest, Tanzania

Tanzania

Imagine the vast landscape of Tanzania spread out before you from your open-front cottage on the Rufiji River, elephants and zebras meandering down for a refreshing sip. On our Tanzania safaris, Zegrahm Expeditions is devoted to total immersion in the home of the largest concentrations of wildlife on Earth, with expert guides, comfortable tented camp accommodations and maximum game viewing. Your Tanzania safari encompasses four national parks—Selous, Ruaha, Katavi and Mahale—and while it’s the lions, elephants, wild dogs, zebras, chimps and giraffes that sometimes get all the glory, this Tanzania safari tour is an incredible opportunity to spot more than 1,000 bird species, from African fish eagles to Tanzanian red-billed hornbills. Insightful and well off the beaten path, your Tanzania safari with Zegrahm will be authentic, private and life-changing.

    The best travel adventures do not happen in a flash of instant gratification. Instead, they are the long, meandering journeys that give us more immersive, interactive experiences to savor.
