Tanzania Safari Tours

Tanzania is a country of outstanding natural beauty, wonderful wildlife and rich culture, with over 120 tribal groups. For many it’s the ultimate safari country, which is not surprising for a country that has more land devoted to national parks than any other wildlife destination, covering an incredible 33,660 km² and including the UNESCO-listed Serengeti, the setting for the famed wildebeest migration and Ngorongoro Crater, a vast volcanic crater ring, teeming with animals. Tanzania is also home to Mt Kilimanjaro, the world’s tallest free-standing mountain and Zanzibar, an idyllic tropical getaway, ideal for some blissful beach time.

The Ngorongoro Crater

The 8th natural wonder of the world

Ngorongoro Crater is a vast and unbroken volcanic crater ring, that's home to nearly every species of African animal. Deservedly referred to as Africa's Eden and the 8th Natural Wonder of the World, where zebra, buffalo and wildebeest graze amongst the predatory lion, cheetah and hyena, whilst pink flamingos and hippos gather at the waters edge. Ngorongoro Crater is also one of the last remaining areas in Tanzania where you can see the endangered Black Rhino.

Serengeti National Park

UNESCO-listed Serengeti is the largest and most popular of Tanzania’s national parks. Sprawled across 14,763km² of sun burnt savannahs, dotted with acacia trees, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa. Between the Serengeti and the Masai Mara, a million or more wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebra and gazelle complete their great circulatory migration in search of green pasture. Where there is such a large mobile meat supply there are predators and the Serengeti is renowned for its impressive lion sightings, with leopards, cheetahs, jackals and hyenas never far away.
