Experience the endless plains of the Serengeti with our range of overland camping, lodge-accommodated and tailor-made safari tours and holidays to Tanzania.

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 42,000 km². This includes 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.

Tanzania tour reviews

Scoring an average traveller rating of 4.63 out of 5 based on 35 recent reviews — See All Tanzania Reviews

We had a marvellous time with our guide, cook and driver. We formed a lasting bond. I found Chris to be very very knowledgeable and always on top of everything we needed to do during our tour. He helped us out even before being asked and was full of fun and joined in our games and music and stories and laughter.

This is my second trip with On the Go tours and both have been fabulous. ”  

Shauna Lorincz • Submitted 25 May 2019

Excellent valued tour for people who have the time and prepared to rough it a bit to have a great experience.Guides were very knowledgeable and terrific to learn from. Cook and driver also had many tour years of knowledge. We were the oldest (63yrs) but still had a fun time and always felt looked after and safe.”  

Stephen Leggett • Submitted 18 Apr 2019

The tour overall is fantastic. It is a great way to have once in a lifetime experiences and see fabulous sights.

However, there are numerous early starts and long days in the truck that are not reflected by the trip notes. There are often times when the group want to stop and see more of the country through which we are travelling but this is not possible due to time and distance constraints.

The tour team were fantastic A little bit more advance notice and information would have been useful though”

Safari and Beach
The perfect holiday combination

From the vast plains of the Serengeti where lions roam to the incredible natural amphitheatre of the Ngorongoro Crater that plays host to the Big 5 and then some, Tanzania is one of Africa's top safari destinations and with the tropical paradise of the Zanzibar archipelago off the coast it's also a top choice for a wildlife and beach holiday combination for sun, sea and safari.

Highlights of our Tanzania safaris

Tanzania offers everything you could possibly ask of a safari destination - remarkable national parks, abundant wildlife, pristine beaches, towering mountains and ancient cultures. Here are the highlights you can look forward to on one of our safari trips.

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti | Tanzania | Africa

Travel across the vast grassy plains of the famed Serengeti on a game drive in search of the Big 5 and to witness the various cycles of East Africa's Great Wildebeest Migration.

Ngorongoro Crater

Lake Manyara National Park
