World’s Best Safari..?
Tanzania Best Safari Inspired by Travel + Leisure
Tanzania Best Safari Inspired by Travel + Leisure.Look forward to witnessing the BIG 5 in the Serengeti endless plain and experience awe—inspiring scenes of one of the earth’s largest migrations. Partake in an intrepid walking safari and explore the magical savannah grassland of Tarangire, home to Tanzania’s largest known population of elephants.
Simply stated, travelers on safari are voicing an astonishingly high level of satisfaction with their arrangements. More so, it would seem, than anywhere else in the world. It would be easy, therefore, to envision a “World’s Best Safari” if such a contest were ever to exist. One would select Shrike—Tanzania’s # 1 Custom Safari Operator to handle all travel arrangements, and only include stays at lodges ranked highly on the World’s Best List. Which, we are pleased to say, is exactly the trip we have designed here!
