Tanzania is one of Africa’s biggest and best safari destinations. On the continent’s east coast, south of Kenya and north of Mozambique, it is home to varied landscapes and even more varied wildlife. Go on a Tanzania safari and take in some of the best Africa has to offer.
Tanzania’s geography varies from the snowy peak of Kilimanjaro through the vast plains of the Serengeti, to the tropical island of Zanzibar. A safari in Tanzania can extend over some of the most spectacular landscapes in the world.
It is the Serengeti, and the rest of Tanzania’s savannah plains, that are home to some of its most famous wildlife. These huge grassland wildernesses are home to all the big African game you’d expect: giraffe, elephant, leopard, lion, zebra, rhino, wildebeest. It is that last animal that Tanzania is perhaps best known for. The sight of wildebeest migrating across the Serengeti is an amazing one…although it’s timing is hard to predict. But if your’e lucky, you’ll get too see it on your Tanzania safari. The Serengeti is also home to the Ngorongoro Crater, a vast volcanic crater that is teeming with pretty much every African animal there is.
But Tanzania is not just about savannah and big game. In the highlands, see mountain gorillas and tree climbing lions. On the great lakes you’ll see swathes of pink flamingo. And on the coast, you can dive and snorkel among huge schools of tropical fish.
Tanzania’s safari industry is well-established, with everything from basic camping safaris to luxury lodges on offer. The country is welcoming and the weather warm. If you want to see wildlife and breathtaking landscapes, it’s the place to be. We certainly can’t think of a good reason not to go on a Tanzania safari!
