Home to some of Africa's most famous parks, Tanzania is a serious safari heavyweight.

Tanzania Safari Holidays

Home to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar, Tanzania is the envy of most safari countries. Lesser known parks are arguably even more impressive; a contender for our favorite destination.

Tanzania safari options here can seem somewhat daunting – all of Tanzania’s safari parks have their own special appeal. The general rule is to choose whether you would like your Tanzania safari holiday in the North or South.

The famous ‘northern circuit’ is home to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire. This area is the stomping ground of the Wildebeest Great Migration and attracts the highest concentration of predators in Africa. It is an absolutely phenomenal big game viewing destination.

The quieter ‘southern circuit’ is home to Ruaha National Park and the Selous Game Reserve. Game densities are not as high here, but there is an undeniable charm to being ‘off the beaten track’ in pristine wildlife reserves.

Safari aficionados head off to western Tanzania for the chimps of Mahale and the wild appeal of Katavi – parks that receive very few visitors indeed.

Just off Tanzania’s coast lies Zanzibar with its fascinating history and exceptional beaches. Other island options include Pemba to the north and Mafia to the south – holiday destinations primarily for keen divers.
