The anticipation before a Tanzania safari is almost as enjoyable as being there. Whether you want to experience a sea of wildebeest, the Indian Ocean, or both, check out our carefully curated selection of Tanzania’s best safari itineraries, which are among Africa’s best safari itineraries. Use these ideas as inspiration to create something for yourself – and start counting sleeps!
This is a country of three halves – yes, there really is that much to experience here! Never fear, Tanzania’s best safari itineraries showcase the very best of the country’s renowned parks and reserves.
The Serengeti is – very naturally – the focus of our northern Tanzania safaris, but it’s far from being the only safari hotspot here. You can also descend into the ‘lost world’ of the Ngorongoro Crater, or add on time in Kenya’s fabled – and adjacent – Masai Mara.
These quintessential stretches of savannah are of course two sides of the same coin, and provide the backdrop for the Great Wildebeest Migration. Added attractions include some of Tanzania’s less well-known but equally breathtaking sights, from the Rift Valley lakes with their pink dusting of flamingos to the bulbous baobab trees of Tarangire.
As the migration dust settles, Tanzania provides two fabulous ways to get away from it all: our southern Tanzania safaris let you lose yourself in the remote vastness of the Selous, one of the last strongholds of the wild dog; or select a Zanzibar beach holiday and let the warm waves of the Indian Ocean and the tides of history wash over you.
Indulged, invigorated, intrigued – time spent in a country like Tanzania will leave you feeling all of these, and wanting more. In which case, think of our itineraries as the foundation, and let’s build you your dream treehouse, safari tent or villa with a bespoke trip.
