Michael Goren, President, ET African Journeys, a Group IST Company, who has traveled extensively in East Africa, said “A Tanzanian safari is like no other!  The Serengeti, together with Tanzania’s 14 other National Parks, offer a rare opportunity to see a proliferation of wildlife in such an unbelievable magnitude.  The quality of the parks and lodges, together with the quantity of observable wildlife in their natural habitat, make for an absolutely unforgettable experience. Add to that the warmth of the Tanzanian people and it truly does become a trip of a lifetime, and in this case, now very affordable.”

The Safari highlights include Lake Manyara National Park, Serengeti National Park, and the Ngorongoro Crater.
