Luxury Safaris to Tanzania
Tanzania has it all when it comes to wildlife and cultural safaris. From the world famous Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti in the north to the remote and wild Ruaha and Nyerere in the South and then the incredible Katavi and Mahale in the west. Whether you want the action of the great migration in the Serengeti or walking safaris in Ruaha or sleeping under the stars in Katavi or tracking chimpanzees through the hills of Mahale, there is something for everyone. And to top it all off you have some of the most pristine beaches and islands off the coast, perfect for the down time after the adventures of your Tanzania safari.
A safari to Tanzania has it all. Some of the best wildlife viewing in the world, top safari guides, luxury safari camps and lodges and some of the best beaches in Africa. There is more to a safari in Tanzania than the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater and this is what makes Tanzania a safari destination you can return to time and time again and never see the same place. The Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater are obvious choices for the first time safari as it offers fantastic wildlife viewing within easy reach of luxury safari camps and lodges. The great migration moves through the Serengeti National Park throughout the year following the rains. Knowing where to go on safari and at what time of the year is key to maximize your chances and overall Tanzania safari experience.
The Ngorongoro Crater is a world renowned World Heritage Site that again offers some of the best wildlife viewing in Africa.
Some of the off-the-beaten track safari destinations in Tanzania include Ruaha and Nyerere National Parks (formerly the Selous Game Reserve) in the south. These are vast reserves teeming with big game and is more of an adventurous safari destination with activities that include walking safaris and fly-camping. Known for their large elephants, big herds of buffalo and good lion, leopard and wild dog populations, the Nyerere National Park and Ruaha make for some exciting Tanzania wildlife safari experiences.
For those looking for the ultimate Tanzania safari experience you can head west to Katavi National Park and Mahale Mountains National Park. Katavi is a very underdeveloped park with very little in the way of tourist infrastructure and this is what the appeal here is. You would be very unlikely to bump into any other tourists giving you the feeling that this is your private Tanzania safari. During the dry season Katavi is home to the a unique wildlife phenomenon where large crocodiles dig holes into the river banks forming large caves that they then hide out in to get away from the sun.
Mahale Mountains National Park is on the shores of Lake Tanganyika and is home to the best chimpanzee tracking in Africa. Each day guests head out in search of man’s closest relative and once found they get to spend an hour following the troop as they forage in the forest.
Zanzibar and the Tanzanian coast offers luxury beach lodges where weary safari goers can relax after the adventures of the preceding days on their Tanzania safari. A safari to Tanzania is the perfect destination for family safaris, honeymoon safaris and those looking for a unique wildlife safari experience – it really does have it all.
