A trip to discover the north of Tanzania: game drives in the world’s most famous parks (Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire) in search of the ‘big 5’, encounters with ethnic groups (Masai, Hadzabe, Datoga, Barabaig) that follow traditional lifestyles, UNESCO World Heritage archaeological sites (the hominid fossils of the Olduvai Gorge and the Kondoa Irangi rock paintings).
Moreover, in this special departure accompanied by Leonardo Francesco Paoluzzi, we will experience one of the most intense emotions that the African continent can offer: witnessing the eternal cycle of nature during the Great Migration.
Not just any safari, but a unique experience in the world, in close contact with the wildest and most exuberant nature of the myriads of herds of herbivores that seasonally plough these sun-drenched and windswept savannahs, expanses bathed in light and overwhelmed, in the truest sense of the word, by the rhythms of migration. To be able to observe the passage of thousands upon thousands of large herbivores, covering the vast expanses of grass as far as the eye can see, followed by predators in search of food, it is a unique experience that will engage all the senses and remain forever etched in the memory.
