A Tanzania safari offers an opportunity to experience an authentic and exclusive East African safari. The country conjures up images of endless plains dotted with flat topped acacia trees and thousands of wildebeest and zebra – silhouetted by stunning mountain ranges like Kilimanjaro and clear blue skies.
Tanzania also offers the greatest variety of scenery and wildlife in Africa and is a great safari location for honeymooners and families.
The northern circuit includes the Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti and Mount Kilimanjaro while the southern circuit includes more remote reserves like Ruaha, Selous and Katavi.
The ecosystem in the northern sector is complex and scenically diverse while the southern reserves offer a very private game viewing experience where you will feel as if you are the only people for hundreds and hundreds of miles.
To the west of Tanzania is the Mahale Mountain range where a thousand or so chimpanzees live in the tropical forests on the banks of Lake Tanganyika.
There are also a good variety of activities available including day and night game drives, walking safaris, mountain climbing, hiking, horse back safaris, hot air balloon safaris, camel trekking and cultural interactions.
If you decide to add a few days in Zanzibar to your Tanzania safari itinerary you can expect to enjoy a variety of water based activities like snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, dhow boat excursions and deep sea fishing.
