Safaris for Seniors
“Don’t count the days – make the days count!”
An African Safari Tour is the Perfect Vacation for Seniors
Gone are the days when traveling across the great plains of Africa was solely for the young. African safaris tours for seniors are now an increasingly popular trend and we couldn’t be more delighted. Even if you are in your late seventies or eighties, there is always something Tanzania has to offer. While some may think that an African safari is far too adventurous for the older generation, we simply have to disagree. Safaris are a fantastic option for those who love adventurous experiences but want to avoid any or all physically strenuous adventure in the process. Being in the African bush is an ideal place for rest, relaxation and contemplation. The only physical effort required is to enjoy being surrounded by incredible scenery, listening to birdsong, looking out for passing animals while reading a book or sipping on a refreshing drink. And when you go on a game drive, just sit back and let our expert guides escort you around the national parks in comfortable open-top safari vehicles tracking the Big Five, identifying the birds and getting you right up close to the animals. If you’d like a little more inspiration about what could be included on your Tanzania safari, read about the range of safari locations available, including Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
We Create Bespoke Tanzania Safaris for Seniors
Choosing a Tanzania holiday if you’re an elderly person is no different to deciding on where to go if you were any other age. It’s all about your unique preferences, priorities and selecting experiences which are close to your heart. The only difference may be that you may need to focus slightly more on the relaxation and luxury side of things, rather than on a hectic, action-packed vacation. Most older safari goers love to focus on getting off the beaten track to the privacy of their own little slices of wilderness, which makes Tarangire National Park one of the best spots — it also has Tanzania’s largest elephant population. Mixing exploration with the right amount of relaxation is what transforms an already memorable vacation into an adventure of a lifetime, and this is something we can help plan for you if you tell us what you’re looking for, so please get in touch if you have any questions for us.
