One of the major attractions to Eastern Africa and Tanzania is the stunning African wildlife. And, tourists have the opportunity to see these stunning creatures in their natural element.
This country with an area of 934,000 sq km boasts of snow-capped Mt. Kilimanjaro at a height of 5,896m that towers majestically over the horizon, flamingos standing sentinel in the salt pans of Ngorongoro Crater, and the hoof beats of thousands of wildebeests that echo over the Serengeti plains. Few areas of the continent captivate the imagination as does Tanzania. Often referred to as ‘the Africa of legend’, where hot dusty afternoons end abruptly in glorious blazes of sunset, and velvet-black star studded skies enfold the hills.
Tanzania Safari tours offer a great opportunity to see the ‘big five’ (lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard) as well as some of the vast species of African birds in flight. The traveler has excellent choices of parks to explore while on Tanzania Safari tours. The most explored parks are located in the North, close to the border with Kenya. It is possible to combine both countries for your safari tours as you get to this border.

“Untouched, unknown but a hidden gem”….an apt description for all that is Tanzania, from the National Parks of the Northern Circuit such as the Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire, abundant with all the animals you could wish to see on Safari including the mighty Big 5, to the remote Southern Circuit parks of Selous, Ruaha and Mikumi teeming with wildlife such as wild dogs, lions and rhinos in their natural habitat.
Interspersed amongst this is the giant peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, with the various routes available for all levels of ability, the Olduvai Gorge, universally acclaimed as the “The Cradle of Mankind” and the tropical paradise which is Zanzibar, with its deep blue waters and pristine beaches. Why not mix and match all or any of the above or any of the numerous other unique Tanzanian treasures, from the exertions of a safari or a mountain climb rounded-off by a well deserved sun drenched recuperation in Zanzibar?
When is the Best Time to Go
January and February are the driest months, and it goes again from July to September. However, the season becomes cool from September. The popular period is between July and September. The school holidays in North America and Europe falls within this period. Rainy season comes in two phases; the extensive rainy period that falls between match and mid-June, while the shorter rainy seasons are ushered in from October through December.
The migration of the wildebeests across the Serengeti National Park starts from December and lingers through July and continues. If you plan your Tanzania Safari tours trip accordingly, you may likely witness the migration.
Private or Group Safari?
As you plan your Tanzania safari tours trip, one of the decisions you would probably have to make is whether to join a group safari or opt for a lone safari tour. Group safari saves a lot of cost. If you are a budget traveler, the group safari tour will be the best option.
Accommodation: Camping or Lodging?
This is another major decision you need to make while planning your Tanzania safari trip. If you choose the camping option, you will stay in tents right inside the camp grounds. This will definitely cost less. However, you will enjoy more comfort but will pay more by opting for a lodge/hotel.
Zanzibar, cloves plantation, chimpanzees among others are attractions to reckon with. The weather is hot and dry for the most part of the year. The game parks of the Northern Circuit contain some of the most spectacular concentrations of wildlife found in Tanzania.
It is no wonder that these game parks are world renowned, unparalleled in concentrations of wildlife, and some of the most pristine yet easily accessible biospheres left on earth.
