At a Glance

Journey to a land where elephants roam free and lions snooze in the afternoon sun. On game drives through ginormous national parks and reserves, search for leopards, rhinos, elephants and cheetahs with the locals that know their favorite hangouts. When you’re not searching for wildlife with your grandchild, get to know the villagers at a local school to learn what a typical day is like – minus the homework! – and make some new friends. When the day is done, huddle in close with your grandchild at the campfire to hear wild animal tales as you create lifelong memories in Tanzania together.
