Tanzania Safaris & ToursEscorted safaris visiting the Serengeti and so much more...

Discover Tanzania on a memorable safari adventure!

Tanzania is a safari paradise, home to the incredible Serengeti National Park and the unique Ngorongoro Crater. Join our Tanzania trips to see for yourself!

Tanzania is bursting with natural beauty and rare wildlife, with its national parks covering an astounding 42,000 km². Stop off at UNESCO-listed Serengeti National Park for a glimpse of the Big Five - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and black rhino. Travel to the Ngorongoro Crater: a vast volcanic crater teeming with animals. See magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro. And unwind on the beaches of Zanzibar, an idyllic tropical Indian Ocean getaway.

We have a number of different travel styles to Tanzania. From overland camping expeditions and small group lodge accommodated safaris to private safaris that cover many of the top cultural and wildlife spots in the country. Find the best one for you and say hello to a once-in-a-lifetime Tanzania adventure.

Tanzania overland camping & accommodated safaris

Our escorted overland camping safaris in Tanzania take in all the country's main highlights, from the Serengeti to Zanzibar and the Ngorongoro Crater. You will also see the best of neighbouring countries in East Africa, and even down south: from Kenya, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe to South Africa. Travelling cross country in a rugged overland truck, you'll be escorted in Tanzania by a two or three-person crew, and everyone will pitch in with cooking and setting up camp. You'll sleep in twin tents under the stars, surrounded by the sounds of the African bush. Or you can upgrade, with an Accommodated version of some tours staying in simple chalet accommodation instead. If you would like more information about our Tanzania camping trips, don't hesitate to contact our team.

Our lodge safaris are fully escorted by a professional guide, with plenty of included game drives in the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Tanzania's other game reserves.

Tanzania private safari tours

These private safaris are ideal if you would prefer to travel to Tanzania with just your friends and family, rather than a group. These Tanzania tours can be booked off the shelf, and they still take in all the main highlights of the country, from the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater to the beaches of Zanzibar. You can also choose from a range of accommodation options to suit your preferences and budget. Our team is on hand to help with anything you may need to plan your dream Tanzania safari.

The Best of African Wildlife

Whichever African safari or tour you choose, you will embark on game drives in some of the continent's most iconic national parks. From the sprawling grasslands of the Serengeti to the dusty plains of Etosha and the waterways of the Okavango Delta. These are some of the species to look out for on safari, including all of the majestic Big Five.


The only social member of the big cat family, living in hierarchical prides of up to 15 or even more animals, lions can be spotted throughout Africa's national parks. Chobe in Botswana and Hwange in Zimbabwe are great places to spot lions on safari.


The world's largest land mammal can be found in more than 30 countries across Africa. Find them drinking at watering holes, the locations of which are passed down the generations by matriarchs. Chobe, Kruger in South Africa and South Luangwa in Zambia have good elephant populations.


Both black and white rhinos are endangered, with black rhinos critically so. Conservation efforts using the money brought in from tourism are so important in protecting these iconic creatures. South Africa's Kruger National Park has by far the largest rhino population in Africa, and Namibia's Etosha is a stronghold for black rhinos too.


Leopards are the most elusive member of the Big Five, well camouflaged against the African bush and preferring to come out at night to hunt. Count yourself lucky if you spot one of these beautiful cats. South Luangwa in Zambia and Moremi in Botswana have some of the highest densities, giving you the best chance to see them!


The armoured tank of the animal kingdom, even lions will think twice before tackling a buffalo. Found in huge numbers across the continent, it is likely to be the first Big Five species you see on safari. The Serengeti is an iconic heartland for this bad-tempered herbivore.


The tallest animal on the planet, the gentle giraffe is surprisingly rare but easy to spot thanks to its height. You can spot them roaming the grassy plains of east and southern Africa, with the Serengeti, Masai Mara and Etosha being particular hotspots.
