BOSTON, Feb. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Overseas Adventure Travel (OAT), the leader in small groups on the road less traveled, has announced savings on Serengeti Safari—its #2 best selling adventure.  On this 12-day adventure, couples can save up to $1300 on any May-December 2012 departure, while solo travelers will save up to $1545 with free single supplements.  Even booked travelers will save: under OAT's Lowest Price Guarantee, booked travelers receive immediate, retroactive refunds that reflect the difference in pricing.

"Last year, more than 3,100 Americans traveled to Tanzania with us in small groups of just 10-16 people," said CEO Alan E. Lewis. "Contrast that with about 570 travelers just five years ago, and you can see that the Serengeti is appealing to more and more Americans.  The people, culture and wildlife of Tanzania are incredible, and at OAT, we're committed to making it more affordable for both couples and singles to experience it."

The 12-day Safari Serengeti: Tanzanian Lodge & Tented Safari adventure begins at $2345, or just $196 per day, and explores Arusha, Tarangire, Oldupai Gorge, Serengeti National Park, and Ngorongoro Highlands & Crater.   Included are accommodations (5 nights in lodges, 6 in tented camps, including 4 nights in OAT's tented camp in the Serengeti, and a day room in Arusha), 33 meals (11B, 11L, and 11D), 7 days in national parks and reserves (2 days in Tarangire, 1 in Ngorongoro, and 4 in Serengeti National Park), 16 small group activities, a resident OAT Trip Leader, and more.  Activities include a visit to a Maasai village, cooking demonstration at a crafts cooperative, visit to a coffee plantation, crafts demonstration, visit to a village school, and up to 8 game-viewing drives.

In addition to the base adventure, OAT offers a 3 night pre-trip option, the "Foothills of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania" from only $895, or $298 per day, as well as a 5 night post-trip option, "Rwanda: The Mountain Gorilla Trek" from $2295, or $459 per day.  The single supplement is free on both extensions, representing additional savings of $500 for solo travelers.
