Tanzania is truly a safari destination without peer. The statistics speak for themselves: an unparalleled one-quarter of its surface area has been set aside for conservation purposes, from the world-renowned Serengeti National Park and the incomprehensibly vast Selous Game Reserve to the tiny Arusha National Park, Tanzania’s wildlife resources represent a rich mosaic of protected areas that collectively harbour an estimated 20 percent of Africa’s large mammal population.



Zanzibar never fails to evoke the exotic, the magic of ancient times, from early explorers and missionaries, to slave traders and colonial rulers. All this is mirrored in Stone Town and its historical architecture and the rich ethnic mixture of its culture. In the towns’ narrow streets, every  sight, every glance conjures up the romantic past. Beyond Stone Town clad in spice gardens are silver sandy beaches bejeweled by superb resorts. Zanzibar is a tropical paradise that dreams are made from; pristine beaches, unspoiled reefs, fantastic sport fishing and romantic dhow cruises make Zanzibar the ideal place to relax after your safari.


Lake Manyara National Park where tree-climbing lions sprawl on stout limbs of acacia. The lovely Arusha National Park nestling against Mount Meru; Lakes Natron and Eyasi are soda lakes that are  as fascinating as they are remote and Olduvai Gorge known as the cradle of  humankind; so come and let us take you on a safari of a lifetime in Northern Tanzania.


The Southern Circuit is off the beaten track. It is said that Tanzania even now has undiscovered nature secrets. This is not an exaggeration and the seldom-traveled southern circuit offers safaris that evoke the romance, enchantment and spiritual delight of the African bush. The Selous Game Reserve embraces 54,000 square kilometers of southwestern Tanzania; it is the largest protected wilderness reserve on the continent, three times larger than the Serengeti.


“As far as you can see, as wide as the whole world and unbelievably white as the sun” This is Kilimanjaro through the eyes of Ernest Hemingway. At 5895m Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest point and the world’s highest freestanding mountain. Incredibly, the snow-capped peak is only a few hours away from a tropical coastline.

It is fascinating to experience this mountain as it raises majestically above the hazy African plains and trekking to the summit from equatorial Africa to artic conditions; passing through tropical rain forest, moorland, alpine desert onto snow and ice. Routes for climbing Kilimanjaro are: – Marangu, Rongai, Machame, Mweka,  Umbwe and Shira Plateau. Anyone above the age of 12 years, physically fit enough to walk 20 km per day may attempt to climb this mountain.

THE NORTHERN CIRCUIT is probably Africa’s most dramatic wildlife area. Game Safaris never fail to satisfy with the thrill of the big game; they also offer diverse flora, panoramic landscapes and spectacular mountains; the game migrations across the plains  defy description. The Serengeti is an ‘Immortal Eden’ where nature reigns – vast endless plains echo with thundering hooves of over two million migrating wildebeest.

NGORONGORO CRATER is heralded as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ is an awe-inspiring caldera; enclosed by sheer walls the crater is breathtaking; this Garden of Eden flourishes with flora and fauna. The Northern Circuit has other equally exceptional game sanctuaries such as Tarangire National Park, which during the dry season has teeming herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle passing through in search of water; and patiently the predators follow these grazers; Tarangire National Park   also boasts many hundreds of bird species.

Chimpanzee trails at LAKE TANGANYIKA along the almost inaccessible Lake Tanganyika – the world’s second deepest lake – lay two exceptional game parks which are home to troops of chimpanzee. Gombe Stream National Park and Mahale Mountain National Park provide a rare opportunity to observe and study behaviour of one of the most interesting area the world has to offer.

There is also UDZUNGWA MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK, which is a park without roads and is Tanzania’s first National Park created primarily to protect flora rather than fauna. Other parks in Southern Tanzania are Ruaha National Park, Mikumi National Park and the Southern Highlands close to Lake Nyasa.


  • Standing at 5895 metres tall (19300 feet), Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak on the African continent and the world’s tallest freestanding mountain. In other words, it’s the adventure-lover’s dream and the first of our favourite adventure activities in Tanzania.  
  • Hot air ballooning over the world-famous Serengeti is a phenomenal experience and undoubtedly one of the best adventure activities in Tanzania. As you rise above the plains of the Serengeti, you are faced with the overwhelming vastness and beauty of the landscape below. You’ll see elephants, zebras, giraffes and other game from above – a game viewing experience very few get to enjoy.  
  • The snorkeling and diving are incredible, but it is most famous for one of the most unique adventures in Tanzania – its whale shark encounters. The whale shark is the largest fish in the sea, measuring up to 1metres in length (32 feet). From October to February, adventurous divers can take to the sea and witness these gentle giants as they glide through the water.  
  • One of the most exciting and rewarding safari experiences is a walking safari. It is immersive, interesting and full of anticipation as you walk in search of Africa’s wonderful wildlife.
