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.

We had such an amazing time on our 22 Day Overland Safari. It was the perfect way to get a taste of Eastern and Southern Africa in such a short space of time! If camping doesn't phase you then we'd highly recommend it! It's an adventure from start to finish and a great way to meet new people. We can't thank our guide, Hes, our driver, Steve and chef, Malinga for taking such great care of our group! A huge thanks to all at On The Go for everything too! Hazel and Andy”

I have had the time of my life and desperately want to return. The tour and all of the guides, drivers and cooks were incredible. I really cannot fault a thing. ”  

Caitlin Whelan • Submitted 13 Jan 2019

Our Guide was very informative and told us a lot about life there, especially as a woman. She also introduced us to locals in Kenya as well as Tanzania and we had the opportunity to spend time with them in multiple places. She was always helpful and made sure everything was taken care of.

The tour itself was great, too. Great places to visit (Masai Mara was a highlight, also Musoma and Ngorogoro and Lake Nakuru), great food, all in all an amazing tour with a great group of people.

Thanks for all the help before the tour though l had an amazing time all in all. ”

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

Head into the ancient volcanic caldera of the Ngorongoro Crater, home to an unparalleled concentration of wildlife including one of the densest populations of Masai lion.

Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara NP | Tanzania | Africa

Admire what Ernest Hemingway described as the ‘loveliest lake in Africa’ with a game drive around the shallow, alkaline waters of Lake Manyara where candy-coloured flamingos congregate.

Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro | Tanzania | Africa

Take on the challenge of Mount Kilimanjaro, standing at a height of 5,896-metres and the highest mountain in Africa, comprised of three volcanic cones with various hiking routes.
