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

If you think of Africa and picture never-ending plains teeming with large beasts and big cats lazing under lone acacia trees then it's likely you're imagining Tanzania, the quintessential safari destination. The vast savanna of the Serengeti is world-famous and every year plays host to the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle in search of fresh grazing.

The nearby Ngorongoro Crater is totally unique and practically untouched even after millions of years with some of the earliest human remains found in the Olduvai Gorge, one of the world's most important prehistoric sites. Today over 120 different tribal peoples call Tanzania home, each with their distinct traditions, dress and language. If this wasn't enough to lure you then off the coast lies the pristine tropical islands of the Zanzibar archipelago, the ideal end to any safari adventure.

Choose from our selection of overland camping expeditions travelling by truck or opt for a more intimate experience on a small group lodge-accommodated safari or tailor-made holiday that take in Tanzania's top spots.
