Tanzania Safaris: Planning and Booking a Tour to Top Tanzania Destinations
Plan Your Tanzania Holiday with the Safari Specialists
·· Tanzania Safaris:

A Place of Plateaus, Volcanoes & Tropical Islands

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 70-80F (21-27C) 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.

NB: When considering a safari in Tanzania, please be aware that East African parks and reserves have daily park fees per person of at least $100 - this is over and above the accommodation costs. There is also no public transport that can be taken to access the Tanzania parks - to experience these areas you need a guide and vehicle, before you start looking at acommodation options. We not sell any low budget accommodation options in Tanzania, so please be realistic in your cost expectations and we will always do our best to assist you.
