Tanzania is well known for its diversity of wildlife, cultures and landscapes. From the classic savannah destinations of the Serengeti, Tarangire and Ngorongoro Crater to the beaches and coral reefs of Zanzibar and the tropical coast, a Tanzania safari holiday delivers one massive experience after another. It also offers other experiences such as chimpanzee trekking in the imperious rainforests of Mahale and Gombe or game viewing in the super-remote Selous Game Reserve.

Serengeti Migration. Flagship of most Tanzania safaris, the migration is regarded as Nature at her most extravagant and involves hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, zebra and antelope running the gauntlet of predators as they migrate around the Masai Mara/Serengeti ecosystem.

This Magnificent destination offers a wide range of safaris for both first-timers and seasoned campaigners. The combination of child-friendly safari with a beach holiday makes Tanzania fit for families. The country has exclusive and luxurious safari lodges and beaches which are very good for honeymooners. And for a full East Africa safari experience, African Safari experts have selected a range of Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya & Tanzania safari combinations.



Tanzania's prominent northern safari region is where to go for classic game viewing and the wildebeest migration, Comprising of the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Parks, But the country's long tropical coastline is home to fabulous beaches as well as can't-miss Zanzibar and other tropical islands. The country is also gifted with wild savannah and rainforest destinations, located in barely visited central and southern Tanzania.
