Lions With the Cubs Tanzania Family Special Safari

 
Tour Summary:
The idea here is to keep everybody moving and entertained. Give kids (and parents) new experiences with new cultures. It is also a relaxed itinerary which will give the group sometime in morning to get ready and gather for the day. We also incorporate a relaxing day in Arusha at the beginning of the tour to help the little ones adjust to the time change.
