Great trip!

“It was a great trip, wonderful to see the animals in their natural habitat. Some long days of driving but well worth it in the end. Erellah was great leader, pointed things out that we would've never seen without his help. Wilson, Sam and Esther were great assets to the trip and made it all the more enjoyable. It was my first trip with this tour operator and plan on more.”
One of the best experiences of my life

“Hands down one of the best trips I have ever taken. The tour guides went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable throughout our entire stay with them and we couldn't have asked for better guides, accommodations and experience. I highly recommend you book your tour with these guys ! You will not regret any minute of it !”

“A truly memorable experience with some long journeys along some very bumpy and dusty roads but the rewards of close encounters with so much of East Africa's wildlife made it all worth while. Our group was 17 strong with 4 crew who worked tirelessly to ensure that we were able to enjoy our trip to the full and the truck had plenty of room for all of us to be able to enjoy the wildlife and catch some magic moments on camera. Camping is a great way to enjoy and experience the wildlife and although some of the camp sites are very basic the location more than makes up for it together with the fact that often we were the only campers.”

Safaris in Tanzania - Overview and Facts

Safaris in Tanzania are as good as they get. The beautiful national parks found across the country are home to a diverse range of plants and animals and you can really enjoy an authentic experience in the wild. Places like the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Crater are sure to become the highlights of your African adventure with their vast populations of game animals and guaranteed Big 5 sightings. However, you also come to fall in love with the real African wilderness, one that is usually seen in national parks found in Western or Southern Tanzania. Selous, Ruaha, Mahale and Katavi tend to make you fall in love with their untouched and remote areas and let you enjoy your entire holiday without having to come across other travelers, making you feel as if you’re the last remaining man or woman on earth.

The Case Against Kenya

East Africa was where the concept of safaris was born, and Kenya and Tanzania are two countries that offer the best safari experiences in the world. After all, what could be better than watching a large herd of elephants posing for photographs with a picturesque mountain acting as the perfect backdrop or thousands of wildebeests trying to cross rivers known to be infested with crocodiles!

The Kenya Vs. Tanzania debate isn’t likely to end anytime soon, but over the past decade, safaris in Tanzania have become more popular because of the political instability of Kenya and also because of the fact that the best safaris in Kenya have become incredibly crowded. It is no longer possible to explore the best that the Maasai Mara has to offer without bumping into other tourists, something that the Serengeti (Maasai Mara’s counterpart in Tanzania) still manages to do with ease. Moreover, Tanzania is also considered to be the easiest place to see the Big 5 on the same day.

Why Choose Safaris in Tanzania

There are a number of reasons why Tanzania safaris have become so popular all around the world. There is something about these adventures that makes them unique and special, something that makes you want to do them all over again.

  • Safaris in Tanzania present the ultimate imagery, one that you come to expect from your safari – the sight of a herd of elephants set against a backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro, one of the most beautiful mountains on the planet.
  • Tanzania generally offers the best game viewing opportunities on the planet without ever taking you away from exotic beaches. It is one of those few countries where luxurious beach vacations can be easily be clubbed with authentic experiences in the wild, e.g. at Zanzibar.
  • Tanzania has some of the best lodges in Africa at prices that offer excellent value for your money. It has those exorbitant accommodations, but it also presents decent options, irrespective of your budget.
  • Safaris in Tanzania are well-developed. Game drives are the main highlight, but you also have other activities such as bush walks, hot air balloon trips and fly camping to choose from.
  • The Great Migration phenomenon is best seen in Tanzania. This once-in-a-lifetime experience lets you watch 1.5 million wildebeest hit the road as they make their annual pilgrimage between Kenya and Tanzania.

Top Safaris in Tanzania

Tanzania is famous for offering some of the best safari experiences in the world thanks to the spectacular game viewing that many of its national parks offer. When you see those images of the perfect safari, you usually look at pictures taken in places such as the Ngorongoro Conversation Crater or Serengeti National Park. These two national parks might be the most popular ones in Tanzania, but there are others that are worth visiting as well:

  • Selous Game Reserve: The Selous is a huge park that is full of picturesque lakes and woodlands. You always have those enjoyable game drives to choose from in all national parks in the country, but at Selous, you also get a chance to combine it with trekking and boating safaris. And the biggest advantage of visiting the Selous Game Reserve is that it is never crowded.
  • Lake Manyara: The Lake Manyara National Park is known for its tree-climbing lions and excellent birding. The most popular animals at the park include giraffes, elephants and leopards, and the surrounding environment is incredibly relaxing and peaceful. This is where you get to see those stunning pink flamingos.
  • Tarangire National Park: The Tarangire offers year-round wildlife viewing adventures and its big game is a huge draw for tourists during the dry season. The park is incredibly scenic and is also known for its superb birding adventures.
  • Gombe Stream National Park: Gombe Stream is among the best places to track chimpanzees in Africa. Made famous by the pioneering research of Jane Goodall, these primates are incredibly habituated and meeting them up close in their own environment is an experience you’ll never forget.

Pros and Cons of Safaris in Tanzania

Some of the most obvious advantages of enjoying a Tanzanian safari adventure include

  • Superb wildlife viewing
  • Off-the-beaten-path safaris
  • Easy access to luxury accommodations
  • The option to add a beach holiday into your safari adventure
  • Numerous options to choose from
  • Excellent wildlife viewing circuits
  • Outstanding chimp tracking facilities
  • Access to indigenous cultures

When to Go

Choosing the best time to go on safaris in Tanzania can be tricky. Game viewing is the best between the months of June to October and December to March, but each season also has its own highlights. The rainy season lasts between April and May and the greener pastures make it difficult to spot the wildlife. However, the natural beauty is at its magnificent best during this time. As the rains give way to the dry season, water sources dry out and the wildlife has to depend on the limited water holes available. This means that you can enjoy guaranteed predatory action and wildlife watching adventures.
