Tanzania

Enjoy Tarangire National Park with its concentrations of elephants, zebras, wildebeests, elands, oryx and massive-trunked baobab trees. Experience diverse habitats at Lake Manyara after learning about local culture in the Mto Wa Mbu village. Descend into Ngorongoro Crater, created by the collapse of an extinct volcano, in search of the Big 5. Visit Olduvai Gorge, the “cradle of mankind,” where the Leakeys discovered the earliest human fossils. Behold the earth’s most spectacular array of wildlife at Serengeti National Park.

This was our sixth time to Costa Rica with NEI and the first trip for our extended family, ages 25-31. Thank you for organizing such a terrific trip. There was not one glitch: everything was perfect, including planning the itinerary. I cannot think of anything which could have improved our experience. It was all perfect.
