Ethik Trip to Tanzania

Logo Soaring Flamingo il s'agit d'un flamant rose dessiné en blanc passant devant un soleil eclatant

This tailor-made small-group tour will show you some of the natural and cultural wonders of northern Tanzania. You will discover the world famous Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti, and you will have the opportunity, among other things, to hike in the magnificent landscapes of the Ngorongoro highlands and Lake Natron, and to meet the little-known tribe of Sonjo.

For us, to be ethical is also to be transparent, so for each trip booked with our partners, a participation will be paid to Ethik Hotels when you indicate that you come from us. The objective is to be able to keep the site alive (adding new accommodation/travel, translation, communication…).
