Planning your Tanzania Safari
Tanzania is the best safari destination in Africa. There's an incredible amount of wildlife in a wide variety of national Parks, some of which only receive a hand full of tourists every year.
Before even starting to plan a safari in Tanzania, ask yourself a few crucial questions. What kind of experience are you looking for: budget or luxury safari, or perhaps something in-between? When are you willing to go? How many national parks you’d like to visit? Identifying your own needs is the first step of careful safari planning. After that, you can contact us here and give us your ideas and we will start sketching your itinerary.
Tanzania has rightly assumed a position as a top African safari destination, after decades of being overshadowed by neighboring Kenya as the premier wildlife region of East Africa.
A Tanzania safari will delight the visitor with the great wildebeest and zebra herds and the pursuing predators that trek the Serengeti in an annual migration in search of fresh grazing and water sources. This incredible wildlife spectacle is just one of many Tanzania safari attractions, which include the Ngorongoro Crater rim, majestic Mount Kilimanjaro and the exotic spice islands of Zanzibar and Pemba.
As Tanzania lies within the equatorial belt, temperatures for much of the year remain constant around 70-80°F (21-27°C) but nights and early mornings are colder between June and August. There is a short rainy period in November and December, with long rains expected between March and May. It is usually dry between June to October and again in January and February.
The annual wildlife migration of an estimated 2 million animals can happen anytime between May and July, depending on the rains, with the animals returning to the southern Serengeti from the Masai Mara around October.
Tanzania combines very well as a safari destination with neighboring Kenya, and there are daily direct flights out of London and Amsterdam to Nairobi, plus a daily flight from Amsterdam direct to Kilimanjaro. There is also easy access from Tanzania to the neighboring gorilla and primate reserves in Uganda and Rwanda.
