Short Description

Tanzania has the largest wild animal population in the world. The country's sites have magical names: The Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Olduvai Gorge, Kilimanjaro. Our trip has been structured with only a short time in the urban capitals, leaving us with ample time for game drives as we move right into the bush. Different national parks have been included for a variety of landscape and game.

Besides the game and birds, the population of Tanzania is very exotic with 260 tribes; we'll see  their villages and crafts.

Amongst the packing, weighing, and pondering I want to extend my sincere appreciation to you for all of your support. This adventure is a childhood dream come true, the likes of which, is equally foreign to me. It is difficult to admit, but six months ago I didn't even know what cargo pants were. I know the "foreign" part has, at times, left me anxious, confused, and frustrated. And yet, your steady guidance has remained consistent and I am immensely grateful to you for that. You never made me feel as if my questions were irrelevant ...... OMGosh thank you so much for that Natalie. You are a credit to your profession and I am grateful you have guided me through this process.

South Africa is all by itself a magical place. When combined with people in the tourist industry who are competent, friendly and knowledgeable, a visit there can be very special. And ours was very special indeed...I really loved the tours that your company put together; they were really very well balanced.

India was great. In fact, it was unbelievable. My wife said it was the best vacation we have ever had-and we have had many. The people of India are the kindest and nicest that we have ever meet. Thank you for your part in arranging the trip.

We returned from our 13-day East African Explorer trip two weeks ago. The trip fully met our expectations. Everything was well organized, accommodations and food were excellent, safari drives were great. Our driver/guide in Kenya, Gitonga (aka Anderson) was excellent and enthusiastic. Based on our experience I can confidently say we will book another trip with SITA in the near future.
