Take a flight out to Tanzania’s Kilimanjaro International Airport and prepare yourself to be whisked off on an incredible safari through Lake Manyara National Park, Serengeti National Park, and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. No.2 Stay at home and watch it on National Geographic… Which do you choose?
