Tanzania by Globus Tours
    Experience an unforgettable African safari on this spectacular vacation to the very heart of Tanzania. Begin your tour in Arusha and spend the night before heading to Gibbs Farm, where you’ll learn how coffee is grown and harvested. Next, head to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area to tour the 102-square-mile caldera, host to an abundance of wildlife including lions and the rare and threatened rhino. On to the Serengeti and Serengeti National Park for additional game drives; look for elephants, wildebeest, zebras and lions. No vacation to Tanzania is complete without an excursion to Oldupai Gorge, where you’ll follow in the footsteps of paleontologists Dr. Louis and Mary Leakey and learn about the most important archaeological finds relating to the evolution of mankind. Also visit a Maasai village. Your tour leaves the Serengeti and heads to Lake Manyara National Park for an afternoon game drive to search for baboons, impalas, giraffes, elephants, hippos, and even tree-climbing lions. After Lake Manyara, experience game drives in Tarangire National Park. Your Tanzania vacation ends back in Arusha, a city that recently gained fame as a seat of the International Tribunal. You’re sure to have plenty to share with your family and friends upon returning from this once-in-a-lifetime African safari vacation!

About Globus

More than 75 years ago, Antonio Mantegazza bought a rowboat to transport commercial goods across Lake Lugano in Switzerland. Who could know that rowboat would launch the world's leading escorted travel company? Today Globus is a global, family-owned company reaching every corner of the world. Globus is now the first choice among individuals looking for vacations with both domestic and international travel in a variety of styles to six continents and hundreds of itineraries to choose from.

Antonio's frequent trips across the scenic lake led him to consider opportunities in a different market - tourism. His entrepreneurial instinct pushed him to gradually acquire some motorcoaches to transport tourists around the Lake Lugano area. In 1928, Antonio opened a company specializing in motorcoach touring called Globus Viaggi. The company began with a fleet of 12 coaches which operated local excursions for European tourists in Switzerland.

By 1950, Globus Viaggi had grown to a fleet of 33 coaches and featured overnight excursions to Rome, Venice, the Dolomites and the French Riviera. Gradually, these became regularly scheduled tours and grew longer to cover more ground. Later that decade, under the leadership of Werner Albek, Antonio's business partner, Globus pioneered the concept of Grand European Touring by offering first-class European tours to North Americans. By 1961, the company launched its Cosmos arm, which featured affordable, value-priced European touring for the cost-conscious British traveler.

The coach tours were so successful that Cosmos soon introduced another form of travel for the British market: air holiday packages to the sunny destinations of southern Europe. By 1968, Cosmos air holidays became so popular the company formed its own airline, Monarch Airlines. Monarch Airlines started out modestly with two used Britannia aircraft and eventually blossomed into one of the most successful European charter companies with a large fleet of modern jets and its own engineering division.

Under the flagship of Sergio Mantegazza, current president and son of Antonio, Globus began expanding its markets beyond Great Britain and North America. Since 1974, travel packages have been sold in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and most recently in Southeast Asia. Starting in the 70s, the company also aggressively expanded its offerings, introducing travelers to more countries than any other tour operator with packages to Africa, South and North America, Europe, the South Pacific and Asia.

Today, the Globus family of brands is marketed and operated by a network of more than 32 independent tourism and aviation businesses, serviced by a group of more than 5,000 professionals worldwide. Combined, Globus, Cosmos, and Monograms carry over 500,000 passengers a year, making the organization the leading operator of guided vacations worldwide. Globus attributes its success to the ideals of founder Antonio Mantegazza. For three generations, his vision, hard work, love for travel, and commitment have guided the company. These values are the cornerstone on which Globus was built and will continue to grow.

What is Escorted Travel?

One of the biggest benefits of escorted travel is the ability to experience a destination without worrying about the details such as transfers, hotels and much more. You will have plenty of free time to explore on your own but you will also benefit from the expert knowledge of our Tour Directors.

And Globus enables you to choose the escorted experience that will suit you best. Do you want a vacation with more planned time or a do you want to enjoy a more independent experience with less "guided" time? There are hundreds of itineraries for you to choose from.

There is also value you receive with an escorted vacation that is difficult or nearly impossible to get with your own planning. Because of Globus' buying power and thanks to nearly 80 years of experience, you will get unmatched values when it comes to your hotels, excursions and even your air price. You will often also have the option of adding even more inclusives to your trip or even adding days to your vacation.

Escorted travel with Globus will allow you to travel with confidence. Globus has offices located all around the globe so you can rest assured during your vacation that you will never be stranded without access to our legendary customer service.
