The home of Africa’s highest mountain, the most famous national parks and the largest game reserve all lie within the borders of this spectacular country. Tanzania also boasts some less-visited but no less interesting parks and reserves, including the Selous, Ruaha, Mahale and Katavi. All of Tanzania’s safari options are easily combinable with a beach break on the Tanzanian mainline coast or one of its islands such as Zanzibar.
Our Tanzania safaris put you in the thick of the wildlife. Gaze upon everything from the biggest cats, to the smallest, most colourful birds, and many creatures in between. Stand in the heart of the Serengeti and spot Africa’s most elusive animals, including lions prowling in the gold-tinged grasses, elephants frolicking at watering holes, and endangered rhino looming large in the distance. This is also where you’ll experience the thunderous roar of the Great Migration – a continual movement of over two million wildebeest, zebra and gazelles in search of precious water sources.
Explore Tarangire National Park, with its famed elephant population and majestic baobab trees. Step inside the Ngorongoro Crater, a paradise of pink flamingos and over 30,000 mammals packed in just 102 square miles – making it the densest mammal population in the world. Discover Ruaha National Park, an off-the-beaten path destination that’s ideal for tracking rare species with few tourists. Or take a boat trip through the Rufiji River in the Selous Game Reserve, the world’s largest game reserve. Here’s you will find elephant, hippo and crocodile in the riverine environment, while rare species like Greater Kudu can be seen on the plains of the reserve. If it’s chimps you desire, hike the misty slopes of the Mahale Mountains in search of free-roaming chimpanzees. Mount Kilimanjaro, with its three volcanic cones – Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira – is a dormant volcanic mountain in Tanzania. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world at 5,895 metres or 19,341 feet above sea level.
