Tanzania is a wildlife seekers dream. Nothing quite prepares you for the Serengeti during the migration – where else can you literally see the world curving away from you and filled with nearly two million Wildebeest and Zebra. For us, we love getting out on foot so fly camping in Ruaha or the Selous or hiking to see Chimpanzees is the distant Mahale National Park rank as some of our favourite Tanzanian Journeys.
Tanzania is also home to the mighty Mt Kilimanjaro – one of the seven summits in the world and the highest point in Africa. We’ve partnered with a specialist outfitter (with whom we both summited in the past) to provide private trips for any willing adventurers.
TaNzanian ITINERARY TASTERS
- Tanzania in Style -
There's so much choice on safari that it's hard to know where to start. This safari is ideal for couples or honeymooners as we've selected intimate, luxurious properties that will allow you to both enjoy each others company, but also give you the opportunity to meet with other like minded folks.
You'll see the best that Tanzania has to offer in terms of Wildlife - for us, the best locations on the continent to do so. You'll also get the chance to explore the bustling and historic Stone Town in Zanzibar. All of this will be topped off with some well needed beach time on Zanzibar's more private and exotic North Island, Pemba.
- Off the beaten track -
We're often asked about our favourite spots in Tanzania (which is a really difficult question) but two places consistently top our lists - Greystoke Mahale and Mnemba Island. Private, luxurious, adventurous and breathtakingly scenic. And in terms of an authentic safari experience away from the crowds, Ruaha is hard to beat and is right up there too.
So for the folks looking for something a little different, or those who've been to Tanzania before, this is a unique safari combining all the things we love about Africa (people, wildlife, culture and the vast open spaces) with those really special moments of Chimp trekking and walking safaris as well.
JAN - MARCH
We personally love this time of the year in Tanzania. For those who love the warmth it is a excellent time to visit while offering great value. The wildebeest also begin to give birth to their young at this time in the southern Serengeti where it tends to be more wet.
APRIL - JUNE
If you're a bit more budget concious and don't mind some rain then this is a great period to visit Tanzania. Many of the camps do close however those remaining open offer some great deals. To avoid longer journeys through raining conditions we do recommend travelling via plane at this time of the year.
JULY - SEPT
Not only are the conditions in Tanzania make it one of the best times to visit, it also coincides with many school holidays making it a very popular time for families to go on safari. To ensure you get the best possible safari during this period, we recommend making a booking well in advance.
OCT - DEC
Another great time to visit Tanzania and it is the perfect time for travellers who are not bound by school holidays. These are wonderful months and can be getting hot and dry before the November shorts rains.
