Tanzania with Safari Guru - Zebra by Deon De Villiers

Safari Planning

In a storybook setting, Tanzania offers an abundance of wildlife second to none on the African continent. It is home to the “great migration”, a phenomenal spectacle of a million-plus herbivores continuing their search for palatable grasses, which in turn benefits and supports an impressive predator population.

Tanzania is the home to several bucket list destinations, such as the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, the inspiring Serengeti, the untamed wilderness of Selous Game Reserve, now renamed as Nyerere National Park, the stunning islands of Zanzibar and, of course, the Pinnacle of the country, the nineteen thousand plus feet iconic Mount Kilimanjaro.

With so much on offer and much to see and do, choosing the correct safari camps, luxury lodges, and travel logistics management is vital when planning a Tanzanian safari. At Safari Guru, we take the stress out of travel planning and offer our many years of travel design and management, ensuring you the best safari experiences at our expansive network of approved accommodations. We guarantee each destination complements the next and offers a well-rounded journey and rewarding experience.

Here, you can expect to find everything from 5-star accommodations and world-class cuisine to top-notch game-viewing opportunities and expert guides.

Understanding Tanzania Safari

Tanzania's northern safari circuit offers some impressive conservation areas, including the Greater Serengeti, Manyara with its tree-climbing lions, the Ngorongoro Crater, sheltering a significant portion of the planet's last remaining black rhino, and Tarangire, which has the most abundant elephant population and magnificent baobab trees.

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.

This is the perfect destination for your next safari, and with its diverse landscape, abundant wildlife, and friendly people, Tanzania is sure to offer you an unforgettable experience. Allow Safari Guru to design the journey that's right for you and your budget.

For safaris in Tanzania, several international flight services into Kilimanjaro International Airport are servicing the town of Arusha, the gateway of Tanzania's popular northern safari circuit. Tanzania's main airport is Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam, the entry point for visitors to the southern parks. Zanzibar also offers many international connections, making it the perfect ending for any East African safari.

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 we experienced. Truly a life-changing journey. I can strongly recommend the Safari Guru when planning your next African safari.

Look closely for the odd leopard or even lion (yup, here in Tanzania, no one has told lions they can't...
