The Africa Adventure Co. has launched a tour to honor the bicentennial of Victorian-era explorer David Livingstone’s birth.
The new tour takes travelers to regions of Tanzania where many of Livingstone’s tours originated. Departing from the capital Dar es Salaam, the tour begins with a stay in Zanzibar’s Stone Town, where visitors will discover the secrets of Livingstone House, once a resting place for the world’s most famous explorers.
The tour then proceeds to the Selous, Africa’s second-largest game reserve — home to elephants, black rhinos, giraffes, African wild dogs and colobus monkeys — followed by a visit to the port city of Kigoma, the site of Livingstone’s accidental meeting with the journalist and explorer Henry Stanley.
Further excursions include chimp-trekking in Gombe as well as a trip outside Tanzania to visit Victoria Falls on the Zambia-Zimbabwe border.
The Africa Adventure Co. operates more than 75 safari trips to over 14 countries.
