Why Tanzania

Tanzania delivers an exceptional safari experience within its game parks and private reserves. Here wildebeest stampede across the Serengeti plains during their annual migration and baobabs dwarf the herds of elephants that feed beneath them in Tarangire National Park. Explore Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the world’s largest free-standing caldera.

Experience “the road less traveled” in wild Katavi National Park, which boasts Tanzania’s largest population of crocodiles and hippos, or boat down the Rufiji River in the spectacular Selous Game Reserve. For a magical experience, trek through the Mahale Mountains National Park in search of chimpanzees. Meet Maasai warriors and the pastoral Wahadzabe and Datoga. Immerse yourself in local life, barter at local markets or spend a morning with exuberant school children. Then wrap up your journey with a beach getaway to the spice island of Zanzibar.

Quick Info

Accommodations: Tanzania offers a variety of high quality accommodation choices from large lodges to permanent tented camps, tree-style camps and semi-mobile tented camps which follow the seasonal patterns of the migratory animals.

Gameviewing: Pop top minivans and land cruisers in national parks, open vehicles in private concessions.

Getting Around: Well-paced overland itineraries driven by professional safari guides are possible. Road conditions vary and flying long distances is highly recommended. Both shared circuit flights between regions or private charter flights available. Self-driving not recommended.

Other Attractions: Mt. Kilimanjaro beckons to those adventurers seeking a challenge, while those needing some relaxation find sun and surf at Indian Ocean lodgings near Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar.
