Tanzania is home to some of Africa’s largest game reserves and parks, and it can be hard to decide what to see on holiday. Our specialists have visited the country extensively and can design your Tanzania safari to avoid the crowds and find the best places to see wildlife.
Leave your vehicle behind to walk and camp in the hidden corners of Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the Serengeti National Park, which host the annual Great Migration. In the south, the Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park provide a more remote safari experience, while chimpanzees can be seen swinging through the trees on west-lying Lake Tanganyika’s shores. After your time on safari, relax on Zanzibar’s powder-sand beaches or take a dhow trip out on the turquoise waters.
