For an incredibly diverse safari experience – from the expansive plains of the Serengeti that are the stage for the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle to the lofty heights of the world’s tallest free standing mountain to the tropical beaches of the “Spice Island.”
Where to Go
Serengeti National Park – Perhaps most famous for the Great Migration, the Serengeti, along with the neighboring Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Maasai Mara, protects the greatest and most varied concentration of wild animals on earth.
Tarangire National Park – Vast herds of thirsty elephant and buffalo migrate to the Tarangire River that runs through this gem of a park.
Lake Manyara National Park – Small but scenic with hundred-strong baboon troops, impressively tusked elephants and tree-climbing lions.
Ngorongoro Crater – Breathtaking views from the rim of this ancient natural amphitheater, and an astounding variety and density of wildlife inside the Crater.
Mount Kilimanjaro – The highest peak on the African continent, the tallest free-standing mountain in the world and one of the most accessible high summits on earth.
Selous Game Reserve –Africa’s largest game reserve, yet visited by few. Fly camp along the banks of the Rufiji River, drift through this water paradise by boat and explore by vehicle or on foot in search of the big game.
Ruaha –The largest and one of the wildest national parks in Tanzania, Ruaha epitomizes the definition of “wild Africa.” Its rugged and dramatic scenery is the backdrop to enormous herds of elephant.
Katavi National Park – An outpost in western Tanzania, Katavi is about as far away as you can get from the tourist circuit. The few people who have been lucky enough to visit feel like they’ve traveled back in time.
Mahale National Park – In the Mahale Mountains there are still no roads just forest paths and tracks made by animals over the years. This remote region in Tanzania’s Western Frontier is home to one of Africa’s largest populations of wild chimpanzees.
Zanzibar Island – Tropical white-sand beaches, lush plantations, incredible history and a fascinating culture, Zanzibar is also known as the ‘Spice Island’ due to the variety of spices grown there. Stone Town, with its Arab-influence, boasts a labyrinth of winding alleys, bustling marketplaces, beautifully carved wooden doors and breathtaking mosques.
When to Go
While Tanzania does not have distinct seasons and dramatic temperature changes, it does have “long rains” and “short rains.” June through November is the best time to travel with warm days and cool nights; however November starts to see short, scattered rains. April and May typically bring heavy, intermittent rains and many safari camps are closed during this time. Note, the Ngorongoro Crater, with its rim at 7,000 feet, is always much cooler than the rest of the country regardless of the time of year.
