Barbet Guided Safari

Barbet Safari: In full

This Tanzania 4WD safari holiday utilises some great authentic safari camps, all in brilliant locations in Tanzania. Explore the scenic Lake Manyara National Park, which is – despite its small size - home to an amazing diversity of flora and fauna; go on game drives in the wildlife-filled Ngorongoro Crater; and marvel at the vast open grasslands of the Serengeti National Park, perhaps just in time to witness the great migration.
