This itinerary allows you to do just that and covers diverse and varied terrains in three national parks in Tanzania: the baobab forests of Tarangire, the miombo woodland and sand rivers of Ruaha and the rolling grassy plains of the Serengeti. And, of course, each location has wildlife as varied as the habitat.
