Tanzania Safaris

Tanzania, the “hotspot” of all safari destinations, Tanzania should be visited sooner rather than later! With a range of camping safaris, first class lodgings and superb eco-friendly tented camps and lodges there is something for any budget and more. Highlights include the must not miss Serengeti National Park with its enormous herds of plains game and gorgeous scenery, the Ngorongoro Crater nicknamed the world’s largest wild “zoo”, the snowy peaks of Africa’s highest peak, Mt Kilimanjaro, and Amboseli National Park lying in the valley enjoying the views. Capturing images of giraffe or elephant moseying along with the mountain in the background at sunset are definitely for the library! Not forgetting that Tanzania is also home to the exotic island of Zanzibar, where ancient Spice trade route history and fantastic beaches combine – a great conclusion to anyone’s safari.

Best Season:Tanzania is almost a year round destinations, save for March to May which is the rainy season and can put a damper on afternoon game drives. But if you are watching the pennies, then this is the cheapest time to visit, being low season. The prime time to visit for safari is July through September when it is dry season and massive herds of wildebeest and other plains game are moving in their thousands within the enormous expanse of the Serengeti and between the Masai Mara in Kenya.
