Tanzania

Tanzania is home to 7 World Heritage Sites and a whopping 38% of the country is devoted to the preservation of nature. If this conjures up an image of a beautiful country well worth a visit, then you are spot on! Our tours and safaris below this intro offer a selection of Tanzanian highlights or we can tailor-make a Tanzania safari for you while you brush up on your Swahili greetings!

&Beyond - Mnemba Island, Tanzania

Safari favourites in Tanzania’s north include Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Mount Kilimanjaro and Tarangire National Park all accessed via Arusha. The Serengeti is famous for the Great Migration, an annual journey of 2 million wildebeest, zebra and various antelope that circulates around the Serengeti and Kenya’s Maasai Mara. Closely monitored by a throng of lion, leopard, hyaena and cheetah, this phenomenal spectacle is determined by rainfall and grazing which varies from year to year.

Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest inactive volcanic caldera, also offers superb big 5 game viewing providing sanctuary to around 25,000 animals. Nearby Olduvai Gorge is renowned for archaeological discoveries of the earliest known human remains and the Ngorongoro area offers opportunities to interact with local Maasai tribes.
Further east, the sight of Mount Kilimanjaro will take your breath away. If you are fit and healthy, the 5896m/19,343ft ascent to Kili’s summit is a serious undertaking but achievable without ropes or technical climbing experience.

Southern Tanzania is dominated by Selous Game Reserve, a less congested safari alternative to Tanzania’s popular northern parks. And what better way to round off a safari than a spell on the picture-perfect beaches of Zanzibar.

The best time to visit Tanzania for wildlife viewing is the dry season from late June to October and March/April is the rainy season peak. The wildebeest calve from late January to February in the southern Serengeti and the herd resides in the northern Serengeti and Maasai Mara from late July to mid October. Typically, the wildebeest cross the Grumeti and Mara Rivers from late August to late September.
