Private Safari 2021

Welcome to Outlanders Private Safari 2021!

Exclusive departure on a classic Safari - Tanzania: Serengeti to Zanzibar JULY 2021 - Rwanda

Earth Journeys... Created by Tauck and BBC Earth. Embark on a grand African safari within Tanzania’s most renowned game reserves and enjoy the safari experience of a lifetime. 

You'll have an opportunity to observe Africa’s Big Five – elephant, leopard, lion, rhinoceros, and buffalo – where they live, in their natural habitats. 

One of our most popular trips immerses you in the Earth Journeys experience, featuring custom-made BBC Earth on-tour film vignettes and when the opportunity arises, the use of field equipment. Following your African safari, your journey concludes on the tropical island archipelago of Zanzibar. 

Enjoy many different types of experiences on this journey, from soaring high above the Tanzanian savannah aboard a hot air balloon to sailing aboard a traditional dhow on the Indian Ocean off the coast of Zanzibar. 

Experience ancient, stunning landscapes, the spice bazaars of Stone Town and one of mankind’s most important archaeological sites... travel by safari vehicles within Serengeti National Park, plus Ngorongoro Crater... and stay in luxury safari lodges, tented camps and a resort overlooking the sea for an in-depth, up-close African safari experience.
