Best Safaris

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 Tanzania safari is choosing properties within close proximity to the majority of herds’ locations.

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

Tanzania also offers a southern circuit consisting of the Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park, and a western circuit centering on Katavi and Mahale National parks.

Each of these areas has a different feel and focus. The Selous is a remote, untamed wilderness, while Ruaha is perfect for those who want to see large herds and predators. Katavi is for the true adventurer, as it is one of the most remote and untouched parks on the continent, and Mahale is perfect for those who want to combine a beach holiday with their safari experience.

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

What is the best month to go on a Safari in Tanzania?

When it comes to planning a safari in Tanzania, there are a few things to keep in mind. The first is that the best time to go on a safari in the Serengeti is during the dry season, which runs from June to October. This is when the animals are concentrated around water sources and are easier to spot. The second is that Tanzania is a large country, so it's important to choose an itinerary that focuses on the areas that you're most interested in seeing. Lastly, be sure to select a safari company that is experienced and reputable.
