Authentic Tanzania with Dan Hopkins
Consider this your invitation to join Dan Hopkins, owner of GrassTrack Safaris, for a privately guided 13-day safari through the game parks of northern Tanzania. Our guide is one of the top in Tanzania (he's guided for BBC and Nat Geo film crews) and we'll join a big cat biologist as we participate in a Citizen Science project and assist in his research of the lions and cheetahs of the Serengeti. We'll visit the beautiful Tarangire National Park and the stunning Ngorongoro Crater before traveling to the Serengeti. Our visit will be near the end of the calving season when tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra give birth - surely one of the greatest natural history events on Earth!
We're offering only 1 departure for this extraordinary safari:

Kalahari & Okavango Safari
The “Green Season” is a special time of year to visit Botswana. By December the rains have finally arrived transforming the dry, dusty bush into a green, lush wonderland.
