Witnessing the Great Migration in the Serengeti, summiting Mount Kilimanjaro, relaxing on Zanzibar’s soft-sand beaches. On a tailor-made safari to Tanzania, you’ll see the highlights — and much more — your way. We’ll design your ideal trip with you, paying close attention to your interests, your travel style and your budget. Our Tanzania safari specialists know the country inside out and can lead you to experiences you won’t find in a guidebook.

Watching herds of wildebeest frantically cross the Mara River, dodging the snapping jaws of crocodiles. Listening to bird calls on walking safaris through remote areas of the Serengeti. Tracking the Big Five on game drives in the Ngorongoro Crater. Spotting hippo, sable antelope and rainbow-plumed birds on boat safaris in Selous Game Reserve. Trekking for chimpanzee troops in the forests of Mahale Mountains National Park.

Home to some of Africa’s largest parks and reserves, Tanzania is your quintessential safari destination. It’s one of the best places to visit if you’re hoping to witness part of the Great Migration, when hundreds of thousands of wildebeest follow the rains between Kenya’s Masai Mara and the Serengeti’s plains. You could also stay in a remote camp in Selous Game Reserve, where rivers and streams attract hippo, giraffe and brightly plumed birds. Or visit the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, where a vast volcanic crater forms a natural sanctuary for the Big Five.

Using their first-hand knowledge, our specialists can help you decide which of our recommended places to visit on your Tanzania trip.

Tanzania is the Africa of your imagination, a place where you can climb the continent’s tallest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, and see wildebeest thundering across the Serengeti during the Great Migration. The country offers a great variety of things to do, including descending over 600 metres (1,960 feet) into the Ngorongoro Crater in search of rhino and tracking chimpanzee in the Mahale Mountains.

Off the coast, the Mafia Islands have a rich local culture and offer palm-fringed stretches of powdery sand and azure waters perfect for activities such as kayaking and whale watching, or you could simply unwind under the sun.

    Each year the lives of almost half a million tiny, tottering, wildebeest begin on the southern plains of the Serengeti. Within minutes they are on their feet, sheltering among the herd on shaky legs, and preparing to run at any moment.

    Stone Town is a maze of haphazard alleyways lead between tall houses and palaces with intricately carved wooden doors with brass studs and heavy locks. The best time to visit is the early morning when the shops are still open and before it gets too hot.

  • Search for Rhino in the Ngorongoro Crater

    The Ngorongoro Crater is home to a large population of resident game and one of the highest concentrations of predators in Africa. In the early evening, you will be return to the crater rim up the narrow track that clings to the inside of the crater before continuing along the rim to your camp.

    Six species of primates live in the mountains, but the main excitement for most visitors are the chimpanzees. A group of sixty chimpanzees live in the region surrounding the camp and have been habituated to visits from tourists, but please note that sightings are not guaranteed.
