A Tanzania safari holiday is a unique and wonderful experience.

The vast expanse of famous game parks host some of the finest wildlife to be seen. The sparkling water
of the impressive salt lakes attract breeding flamingoes in their thousands and the pristine shores of the
eastern coastline are the perfect place for complete relaxation.

David Livingstone said he was completely and utterly mesmerized by Zanzibar and its people. The Spice Islands of Zanzibar
and Pemba (major producers of different fruits and spices) have some of the most exotic beaches of the Indian Ocean, coupled
with a fascinating history that goes back thouands of years.

Tanzania is a land of huge, rolling game parks, the spice islands, not to mention the lovliest people.
This massive country has a wealth of opportunities. 

  • Track chimpanzees in Mahale Mountains

    The remote location of Mahale Mountains is home to the world's largest known population of chimpanzees. With no roads for a hundred miles you can follow chimps on forest paths watching them wrestle, groom and forage across the leafy forest floor.

    As well as the chimps, the forest is home to several other animals, including bushpigs, bushbucks and an amazing variety of butterlfies and birds. It's also inhabited by nine species of primate.

    After a busy morning of chimping, you can take an afternoon trip in a dhow and watch the sun set, whilst watching hippos swimming. You can also take a kayak out for a paddle towards the centre of Lake Tanganika.

  • Explore the Selous

    Often the best way to see the most game and to avoid scattering the wildlife from the lakeshore, is to do a safari on foot. Time spent on foot really is an opportunity to engage all your senses.

    Being on the river is a fantastic contrast to time spent in a vehicle and you can drift silently down stream watching the river banks unfold.

    A real treat and a once in a lifetime experience is to spend a night flycamping, sleeping under the stars, whilst listening to the sounds of the bush.

  • See a diversity of wildlife in the Serengeti


    The Serengeti National Park is Africa's most famous game park and a safari in The Serengeti never fails to impress.

    There is a dense population of animals and in particular the host of predators that roam across the 5,700 sq miles of grassy plains, which are only broken by rock kopjes and small river valleys.

Tanzania lies below the equator and overlooks the Indian Ocean. Read More

Tanzania lies below the equator and overlooks the Indian Ocean. A plateau dominates the country and shapes its tropical climate, this is in contrast to the thin coastal zone which is hot and humid throughout the year.

The best wildlife viewing months are during the dry season (late June to October). Within this period the best time to see the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti is June to September and the best time to see wildebeest calving is during January and February. The northern circuit parks can be visited all year round but generally visitors tend to be better off sticking to the dry months.
