Best Safaris

Undoubtedly one of our most popular safari destinations, and more recently becoming a family favourite.

It’s themed in movies, and home to some of Africa’s most significant icons; Mt Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater.

In a storybook setting; Tanzania offers an abundance of game second to none on the African continent, and is home to the “great migration”, which in turn benefits and supports an impressive lion population.

The migration is a continuous phenomenon, as the one-million-plus herbivores continue a never-ending search for palatable grasses. The process takes roughly a year to traverse the greater Serengeti eco-system, which includes the Maasai Mara in Kenya. A vital component in planning a Tanzanian safari is choosing properties within close proximity to the majority herds location.

No Tanzanian northern safari circuit is complete without a visit to some of the other impressive conservation area's, including; Manyara with the tree climbing lions, the Ngorongoro Crater in search of some of the planets last remaining black rhino and Tarangire, which has the most abundant elephant population for this area.

Tanzania also offers a southern circuit consisting of the Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park, and a western circuit centring on Katavi and Mahale National parks. These are less travelled areas for the family experience but offer incredibly diverse safari experiences for the adventure seeking wilderness fan. Mahale is sometimes referred to as the premier chimp viewing destination in Africa.

Lastly, for the ultimate adventure-seeking enthusiasts, Tanzania is home to the nineteen thousand plus feet Mt Kilimanjaro, which is nearly 6,000 meters above sea level.

Only have the highest regard for the level of professionalism, local (African) knowledge and high quality of service provided by the Safari Guru. Deon did a sterling job in putting together a brilliant bucket list family trip to the Okavango Delta in Botswana in 2019 which I am now forever grateful for the unforgettable memories which we experienced. Truly a life changing journey. I can strongly recommend the Safari Guru when planning your next African safari.

Tanzania's Best

Chimp Trekking

Mahale Mountains National Park is accessible all year round and is a stronghold for some of Africa’s last remaining Chimps. For many a primate experience is the most rewarding of all safari experiences, and Mahale holds the key to possibly Africa's best chimpanzee moments.

Diving Zanzibar Island

The exotic Zanzibar archipelago lies 25km off the east coast of Tanzania and includes Unguja, Pemba and an arrangement of small, tropical island sanctuaries. The northern and eastern coasts of Unguja including beautiful and timeless beaches boast many excellent resorts, which makes Zanzibar a perfect place to conclude an East African safari.

The Serengeti

The Serengeti conjures up quintessential images of vast plains disappearing into the distance, broken occasionally with roaming wildlife.  Serengeti does indeed mean "endless plains" in the Maasai language.

View Experience

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is a simply stunning safari destination, offering abundant wildlife, cultural immersion, and one of Africa’s most famous landscapes. The Crater was once a volcano that erupted and exploded millions of years ago and is a famous wildlife destination supporting one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa year-round.
