Tanzania is East Africa’s essential safari destination. Famous for the annual wildebeest migration and big game in large numbers. Tanzania safaris are the biggest tourism draw because more than a third of the country is set aside for conservation. There are 40 national parks and game reserves. You’ll find tremendous biodiversity and dramatic scenery with top rated wildlife spectacles.
Visiting Tanzania suits first-time travel to Africa, but is also a perfect match for seasoned travelers.
Northern Tanzania is home to Mt Kilimanjaro and Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks. The great wildebeest migration in the Serengeti has been the subject of many wildlife documentaries.
Selous and Ruaha make up one of the world’s largest wildlife reserves in Southern Tanzania. This southern region is a significant stronghold of big game. Almost 10% of the lion population, and nearly a third of the continents wild dog are found here.
Go beyond the obvious and go west. There’s little to prepare even old Africa hands for the stark contrasts thrown at them. The remote, rough and raw wildness of Katavi will impress. You could combine this with Lake Tanganyika’s gin coloured waters and chimp filled forests in the Mahale mountains and shoreline
A magical combination and one of the best safaris in this part of Africa.
