Tanzania Safari Holidays

Tanzania's natural environment and geographical features have made a Tanzanian safari one of the most popular items on a tourist’s bucket list in Africa.  A safari to Tanzania will take you through the beautiful National Park and animal-packed Ngorongoro Conservation Area, just to name two spectacular sights. While on safari in Tanzania, thousands of people fulfil their lifetime achievement challenge of climbing to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro each year. On the coast of Tanzania you will find the exotic and intriguing Zanzibar island.  All these sights and experiences are enveloped by the unique and friendly Swahili culture.

Being the biggest country in east Africa, Tanzania has heaps to offer her visitors, including 13 game reserves and national parks. Tanzania also forms part of the world's largest animal's movements, the great migration. Inland are the vast Serengeti National Park and the animal-packed Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and thousands of people every year fulfil their lifetime achievement of climbing to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, which is the highest mountain in Africa. On the coast, Zanzibar is exotic, intriguing and steeped in the unique Swahili culture.

The weather in Tanzania varies from humid to hot in the low lying areas such as Dar es Salaam, whilst places like Arusha can be hot during the day and cool at night. Tanzania is one of the countries that have wet and dry seasons instead of winter and summer.

The Serengeti National Parks claim to fame is not only the annual migration of white bearded wildebeest and zebra, but also it is regarded as the best wildlife reserve in Africa due to its density of predators and prey. Ngorongoro Conservation Area consists of a large volcanic caldera, namely the Ngorongoro Crater. This massive crater is home to over 250 000 large animals, making it an attraction not to be missed.

With its picture perfect beaches, hustle and bustle of locals, local markets and a huge variety of spice, Zanzibar makes for the perfect tropical holiday destination. Whether you are looking for a cultural experience, relaxing experience or both, Zanzibar and its people can provide it. Spice tours, prison tours, snorkelling, scuba diving and sipping cocktails are only a few of the many activities.
