Inspirations for your safari to Tanzania

Make your tailor made safari to Tanzania extra special. Here are some of our favourite things to do whilst visiting Tanzania.

Z-for-Zanzibar
Beachtime Chilling

Relax on Zanzibar

Head to the beautiful island of Zanzibar for a few days of relaxation. From the stunning beaches of Nungwi and Kendwa in the north to Kiwengwa and Pongwe to the east. The port town of Stone Town is a great place to explore and head off on the fun Spice Tour where you learn about all of Zanzibar’s great spices as well as its fascinating history.

The men in red

Visit a Masai Village

When you think of tribes in Africa, there is certainly one tribe that stands out more than most – the famous Masai tribe. Adorned with (usually) red blanket robes, carrying wooden sticks to help herd their cattle and jumping higher than most humans! A visit to a traditional Masai village gives a great insight into their way of life, their important traditions and you can also see if you can jump as high as them (well the men can!)

Spotting leopard in the Serengeti

Most people say that seeing a leopard on safari is one of their favourite moments of any trip to Africa. The Serengeti is certainly one of the better places to spot them. High up in the trees these ambush predators don’t make life easy for keen leopard spotters – but it makes actually sighting one all the more worthwhile.

Ngorongoro Crater Lodge
Colonial luxury

Stay at the Ngorongoro Crater Lodge

High above the craters edge sits the simply sumptuous Ngorongoro Crater Lodge. This colonial beauty offers some of the best hospitality in Tanzania. Enjoy sundowners from your private stilted suite looking over the crater, make the most of the private butler service and enjoy long hot bubble baths made for you for when you return from a dusty day exploring the crater and the Serengeti!

Suggested Tailor-made Holiday itineraries for Tanzania

From the endless plains of the Serengeti to the snowy heights of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania is a land of immense beauty and our recommend itineraries cover the best safari spots here and in neighbouring Kenya, as well as the stunning island of Zanzibar for some time on the beach.

Climb to the roof of Africa

Sitting at a lofty 5900km, Mount Kilimanjaro is the biggest free standing mountain in the world. Every year thousands of people attempt the tough but highly rewarding climb which is popular due to its non-technical ability. If it appeals to you then it is a great thing to do before a nice relaxing beach break on Zanzibar or an exciting safari holiday in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater!
