- Spotting the Big Five (Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo)
- Birdwatching in Lake Manyara
- Full day game drives in three of the best safari destinations in Tanzania
A visit to the Ngorongoro Crater is an experience of a lifetime. There are few places that have wildlife densities and variety at this level. It is not unusual to see the Big Five in one day-and all this in the most amazing setting with a backdrop of the 600m/1968ft high crater wall.
Lake Manyara National Park provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s birdlife. More than 400 species have been recorded, and even a first-time visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 100 of these in one day. Highlights include thousands of pink-hued flamingos on their perpetual migration, as well as other large waterbirds such as pelicans, cormorants and storks.
There is more to Serengeti than large mammals. Gaudy agama lizards and rock hyraxes scuffle around the surfaces of the park’s isolated granite koppies. A full 100 varieties of dung beetle have been recorded, as have 500-plus bird species, ranging from the outsized ostrich and bizarre secretary bird of the open grassland, to the black eagles that soar effortlessly above the Lobo Hills.

Is Tanzania a family-friendly safari destination?
Tanzania is an excellent safari destination for families. The country has one of the most diverse wildlife populations in Africa, and there are countries with action-packed game drives that your children might enjoy. Furthermore, many of the destinations are quite affordable for family safari holidays. The only caveat is that Tanzania falls under Africa's malaria belt. Thus, traveling with children under six years of age is not recommended. Many safaris have age restrictions due to safety concerns.
- Do I need a visa and passport to travel to Tanzania?
What clothing do you recommend I bring on this tour?
In terms of clothing and accessories, I recommend packing the following: a sun hat that shades your face, sunglasses with good UV protection, a light cotton scarf to protect your neck from the sun, short and long-sleeved light cotton or quick-dry shirts in neutral bush colors (no brights), a fleece or jacket for the evenings, a lightweight rain jacket, shorts or zip-off trousers and your choice of casual smart clothing for the evenings when staying in lodges / tented camps. In terms of footwear, sensible walking shoes or trainers are fine and sport sandals are also useful. A head torch (flashlight) would be very handy as well.
When is the great wildebeest migration?
The great wildebeest migration starts anytime between late April and early June. And if you are interested in seeing the grand spectacle of wildebeest crossing the Grumeti or Mara Rivers, you should plan your trip around late July or early August. However, it is important to note that the timing of herd movements can vary.
