Tanzania Wildlife Safari

Tanzania is one of Africa’s most enticing countries, framed by the powdery white beaches of the Indian Ocean, and home to Mount Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti plains. With its friendly people and epic landscapes, Tanzania is perfect for any traveller. It’s also home to the Big Five: buffalo, leopards, lions, rhinos, and elephants…as well as many other animals. On a Tanzania wildlife safari, you may be lucky enough to see them all.

The town of Arusha makes a great place to start your journey. The third largest city in Tanzania is safe and modern, with easy access into the country. First, visit Ngorongoro Crater, a historical site at 2000 meters deep and home to an abundance of wildlife. Then it’s off to do some sightseeing at Lake Manyara, where millions of flamingos make their home. This beautiful part of Tanzania is filled with contrasts: lush forests, grassy floodplains, lakes, and blue mountains rise from the Maasai Steppes. Other than flamingos, big game like elephants is also found here.

It’s the Serengeti that’s the main draw for safaris, however. Spanning more than 30,000 square kilometres, the Serengeti stands for “endless plains” in the Maasai language. Serengeti National Park includes the plains, as well as a number of protected game reserves and conservation areas maintained by the governments of Tanzania and Kenya. It’s also home to the largest mammal migration on the planet. The climate here is warm and dry, but the two rainy seasons occur from March to May and then October to November. It’s best to come when it’s still warm and dry.

Tanzania Wildlife Safari Continued...

The Serengeti’s wildebeest migration is one of the park’s biggest attractions. On your Tanzania wildlife safari, you’ll have the opportunity to see the wildebeest, as well as leopards, cheetahs, lions, and hyenas. The migration begins in December in the Ngorongoro area, with 1.2 million wildebeest, 750,000 zebras, and hundreds of thousands of other animals. There are also giraffes, zebras, impalas, buffalo, and baboons. An experienced guide will lead you through the heart of the Serengeti safely, while evenings can be spent at a campsite or around a campfire.

Although it’s impossible to get tired of all the wildlife, from the Serengeti it’s also easy to access other popular Tanzania attractions, like the Selous Game Reserve and UNESCO World Heritage site. Take a day-hike to Sanje Falls in the Udzungwa Mountains, or drive through Mikumi National Park too see more wild game. Visit Zanzibar, the country’s capital rimmed with beaches. Try some snorkeling or swimming with whale sharks. Be sure to also stop by historic Stonetown. Take a boat down the Rufiji River, and spend your evenings in beautifully designed tree houses or other plush accommodations.
