Introduction

This is a sample itinerary showing the possibilities of combining a Congo safari with (some of) the highlights of Tanzania. which together make for one of the most varied safari itineraries possible.

There are many variations to this itinerary, and although it is proposed as a 19 day long itinerary here, it can be condensed into as little as 10 (by cutting out and shortening various components). this itinerary however gives you a good insight into the possibilities and choices you have when planning a big safari such as this.

Different seasons also make different regions more and less attractive, depending on your travel time we can adjust the itinerary accordingly. The trip can also be done in reverse order.

We feel this is one of the most exciting safari itineraries available, so if it is on your bucketlist, contact us to start building your trip of a lifetime.
