“The Serengeti took my breath away, and the Ngorogoro Crater was the most incredble place in the world. At some parts of the day it felt like I was on set of the Lion King. Plenty of wildlife to see. It’s true what they say – you really do leave a piece of your heart in Africa.”
With the almighty Mount Kilimanjaro, the magical Ngorongoro crater and the dusty plains of Serengeti National Park, all teeming with wildlife – Tanzania is the land of safaris. Take a boat ride past snoozing crocodiles, watch elephants and giraffes wander amongst ancient baobab trees and hold your breath as you see a family of lions playing amongst lofty outcrops. This place has it all.
Tanzania safaris offer the ultimate African safari experience
Tanzania safari holidays are all about excitement, adventures and spellbinding moments that leave an everlasting imprint in your mind. Embark on a 4×4 safari, absorbing the rugged natural beauty of Tanzania’s vast national parks, experience incredible nature and unique animal life like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
A bucket list must is the Great Annual Migration – a thundering stampede of up to 1.5 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra, making their way to the refuge of the Masai Mara. Explore the 2.5 million-year-old Ngorongoro Crater, with its sublime views overlooking a wide plain cloaked in blue and green. Take a trip to see the famous tree-climbing lions in Lake Manyara National Park and our Bush Rover Experience package includes a dreamy canoe trip along the channels of Lake Victoria, a perfect spot for bird watching.
For honeymooners looking to enjoy a little beach based luxury along with a safari, we recommend visiting Zanzibar for a few days, followed by our 3-day safari experience to the vast and wild Selous Game Reserve, in southern Tanzania. This reserve boasts over 54,000 square kilometres of terrain and is home to over 750,000 animals including the Big Five. The Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest reserves in the world and can be explored by 4×4, boat, or on foot.
Top Tips from our Experts
“Tanzania is great for those who have already done a safari in Kenya. It’s more of a challenge to spot certain wildlife, which just adds to the thrill! And after all the excitement of safari, why not spend some time relaxing at one of Zanzibar’s idyllic beach retreats?”
