TANZANIA

Tanzania is Africa’s visual masterpiece. It is a country of natural splendour, astounding wildlife, seductive beaches, charming ancient towns, archaeological sites and geological wonders. Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, rises from lush, grassy plains and towers over the land. Its snow-capped peak is a sight to behold. Climbing Kilimanjaro is surprisingly easy and standing on the roof of Africa is a life-changing experience. The ideal bush and beach destination, visitors can witness the mighty herds of the Great Migration thundering across the Serengeti plains and end their unforgettable safari with a serene beach holiday on Zanzibar, the intoxicatingly beautiful and exotic Spice Island.

GET IN TOUCH

Tanzania offers an array of enticing options for safari-goers.  The renowned northern circuit is packed full of national parks and conservation areas teeming with wildlife of every shape and size.

Tarangire shelters her majestic elephants and baobab trees. Follow a serpentine road down to the Ngorongoro Crater floor in search of the elusive black rhino. Stay in a mobile camp perfectly positioned on the vast Serengeti plains near the migratory herds. A safari through the South is a venture into wildlife havens like the Selous, Ruaha and Katavi; where the remoteness is the appeal and the rewards are great. Our team is ready and waiting to help you decide what would suit you best!

The best times to see Tanzania’s wildlife and Zanzibar’s beautiful beaches happily coincide. Travel in July to September to catch the river crossings of the Great Migration and for Spice Island sunshine. Try June or September to avoid the biggest safari crowds, or head south – the southern national parks are quiet all year round. Outside peak season, January and February offer generally dry weather and wildlife emerges to make the most of the topped-up waterholes. In Zanzibar, water visibility can be up to 20-30m.

Simply incredible! So happy that for my first trip to Africa I chose Uganda. My only regret is that I didn’t book a longer trip (we had 13 days) so that we could have had time to immerse ourselves in the culture a bit more.
