Join Naples Zoo for a custom-crafted tour through northern Tanzania's world-famous national parks including some all-new experiences. Each departure is limited to 9 couples as we'll be experiencing some intimate luxury camps specifically chosen for their location and amenities. And everyone gets a window seat in our open-top safari vehicles to experience Africa up close.

We'll observe the king of beasts as well as wildebeest herds roaming the plains. You'll also meet the famous Maasai people, travel among elephants through giant baobab trees, take in the history of Olduvai Gorge, and so much more.   Along the way, we'll stay in stunning accommodations beginning with Golf Safari House on the Kilimanjaro Golf & Wildlife Estate all the way through three luxurious nights at the luxury Meliá Serengeti Lodge. Along the way you'll awake to amazing views from the rim of Ngorongoro Crater and experience classic tented camps in Tarangire and Serengeti! We'll even visit one of the exciting conservation projects supported by Naples Zoo. 

This tour was crafted from the start by Naples Zoo's Director of Conservation who has been hosting safaris for years. This was done in concert with the president of World Safaris and his Tanzanian partner. Plus you'll get the professional service of Theresa Perez at Luxe Travel Consultants in Naples who has worked with Naples Zoo for our travel programs for over ten years. And you'll enjoy it all with Naples Zoo! The October 5 departure is hosted by Naples Zoo Director of Conservation Tim L. Tetzlaff and Director of Animal Programs Liz Harmon. Liz is responsible for the care of all the Zoo’s rare animals. And Naples Zoo’s Director of Development Marci Seamples, who co-host the October 18 departure, helps secure the resources the zoo needs to carry out its conservation and education mission. 

With just 9 couples, you will get the personal connection to the Naples Zoo professionals who regularly travel through these parks. You'll even enjoy a pre-trip meet and greet where you can get to know your fellow travelers and have all your questions answered. We'll also offer a photo class to review equipment suggestions and provide tips for taking pictures on safari. And a few months after you return stateside, you can relive your African memories at a reunion party at Naples Zoo!

NOTE: African roads are bone-jarring and days are spent in the vehicles observing Tanzania's natural wonders. Please download itinerary packet for more info for what to expect on safari.
