Exquisite, endless, ever-changing landscapes
From the volcanically rich soil to the lush forests, interminable golden savannahs, pearly white sands, snow capped peaks, baobab clusters, lush swamps, fields of sunflowers and a constantly overwhelming sense of space, there is so much to explore.
Nature’s most magical playground
Tanzania has three safari circuits and each one of them would make Tanzania a top wildlife destination. The popular Northern circuit with the Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater offers one of the best classical safaris in Africa, especially if timed with the annual wildebeest migration. Sit surrounded by 1.5 million wildebeest as you experience one of natures great wonders, sip a G and T on the shores of the flamingo-infested lake Manyara as the fiery sun sinks below the horizon, or survey the vast Ngorongoro crater from a breathtaking vantage point on the rim.
High densities of game all year round
Tanzania boasts the highest game density in all of Africa and as a result the game viewing is simply spectacular. At any one time you will be in awe of the amount of game that you see whether its elephants, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo or giraffe… there will no doubt be more than one of them. The Serengeti is particularly famous not only for its endless plains but also for its healthy population of lion.
Scattered in amongst the world’s finest game reserves, coffee plantations, maize fields, colourful Maasai villages and dynamic topography are our favourite luxury destinations. Only the very best in safari indulgence. As the Tanzanians say, ‘Twende porini,’ let’s go to the bush!
Travelling to Tanzania
There are three major international airports – Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro (near Arusha) and Zanzibar Island. Arusha town is the starting point for Tanzania’s most popular Northern Safari Circuit and Kilimanjaro International Airport is situated 46km east of Arusha. Tanzania’s main airport is Julius Nyerere International Airport located 13km southwest of Dar es Salaam. The latter is the entry-point for visitors to the southern parks. Moving on from Arusha or Dar es Salaam you can fly or drive between reserves or you can opt to do a bit of both.
When to go:
Tanzania offers a diversity of wildlife like no other, culture immersion and a land of continual contrasts. East Africa’s biggest country by a long way, home to the famous Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Africa’s highest mountain and Africa’s largest lake it really does have it all.
