Take a Tanzania Safari in Style
If you’d like to experience the magic of Africa, choosing a Tanzania safari will ensure you get to see a host of world-famous sights and weird and wonderful creatures. Tanzania is possibly the most impressive country in Africa in terms of scenery. It is a beautiful country full of geological sites, natural wonders, pristine beaches, historic islands and dynamic wildlife. The appeal of a Tanzania safari lies within the fact that visitors get to enjoy a bush and beach holiday rolled into one, with the nearby islands of Zanzibar close by. Not only this, those who choose Tanzania get to witness the spectacular wildebeest migration that occurs in the Serengeti every year. Stay in luxurious lodges or remote camps, expect superb guiding, eat delicious meals and take part in some exhilarating safari activities.
Below are 5 ways you can spend a Tanzania safari:
In a Volcanic Crater
The Ngorogoro Crater is the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and one of Africa's most spectacularly beautiful regions. Measuring 10 miles across and 2000 feet deep, the crater is a fantastic place to enjoy a safari because it provides home for over 25,000 mammals. Take 4x4 safaris and bush picnics to witness the big five and make sure you book a luxury lodge on the rim of the crater for breath-taking views of the landscape.
At Africa’s Highest Mountain
The snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro stands at 19,340 feet above sea-level, dominating the Tanzanian skyline for hundreds of miles around. This majestic mountain can be viewed from the ground on your Tanzania safari, or if you’d like a challenge you can climb its peak. Whilst climbing Kilimanjaro only requires a basic level of fitness, it is tough mentally and physically so don’t make the decision too quickly!
Following the Migration
The wildebeest migration is one of greatest natural events known to man; where 1.5 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebra, 18,000 eland and 500,000 gazelle form the world’s largest overland animal migration. On a safari in the Serengeti you can track the herds as they make their move in so many ways. Stay in a mobile migration camp, take game drives and walking safaris or float above the plains in a hot air balloon ride for the perfect bird’s eye view.
With the Chimps
Take a unique Tanzania safari in the Mahale Mountains to spend time with chimpanzees. Home to the largest population of chimps in the world, this part of Tanzania allows you and your family to observe these special creatures as they go about their day to day lives. This is an unforgettable experience and you’ll find you’re not so different at all from our closest living relatives!
On the Beach
After wearing yourself out on safari, relax and unwind on the pristine beaches of Zanzibar. The Spice Island is renowned for its rich culture and history and whilst this can be seen in the Stone Town, you absolutely must take advantage of the white powdery sands, the warm azure waters and the exciting array of water sports.
