An amazing journey though Africa over 57 days. Great sights and experiences, On The Go Tours have put together a fantastic trip. You’ll see the best Africa has to offer and have a chance at one in a lifetime experiences. The different crew members over these legs made the trip even more memorable in particular our last leader Onary. Our cooks kept us well fed including some delicous local dishes. If you have the time do this trip. ”  

Nathan Burgess • Submitted 17 Feb 2018

Our tour was very well organised and Hesbon the tour leader along with Milinga the cook and Stevie the driver were outstanding. Their attention to detail and organisation made our trip seamless and a real adventure. Hesbon was great at giving us all the details of our daily initnery and the highlights along the route. He was also very good at accommodating all of our individual needs and issues.We went on the trip with our 2 teenage children who were warmly welcomed and included by all of the group.The truck and equipment was of a good standard and the daily menu was outstanding.The only critiscism I would have is that there were 4 days of travel that was over 12 hours on the road and this was quite tough. It may be worth considering making the trio 2 days longer and breaking up the long drives in Zambia and Tanzania as there was little opportunity to stop an experience these locations”

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.

Recommended places to visit in Tanzania

Tanzania offers everything you could possibly ask of a safari destination - remarkable national parks, abundant wildlife, pristine beaches, towering mountains and ancient cultures. Here's some of our favourite places in Tanzania to get you inspired.

Lake Manyara National Park - Small yet stunning

View on map
Lake Manyara NP | Tanzania | Africa

Bordered by the western escarpment of the Rift Valley and encompassing the shallow, alkaline waters of Lake Manyara, this is one of Tanzania's smallest national parks yet has plenty of appeal with large concentration of candy-coloured flamingos, mud-loving hippos, tree-munching giraffe and tree-climbing lions. Despite its size of just 329 sq km, the variety of vegetation is quite diverse with dry savannah and boggy marshes.

Serengeti National Park - The Endless Plains

View on map
Serengeti | Tanzania | Africa

The vast, seemingly never-ending grassy plains of the Serengeti National Park are one of Tanzania's most unforgettable sights. Punctuated by lone acacia trees and rocky outcrops where lions laze, the Serengeti is one of Africa's top safari destinations, home to the great spectacle that is the migration of hundreds and thousands of zebra, wildebeest and gazelle every year.

Ngorongoro Crater - A Natural Amphitheatre

View on map

Nothing quite prepares you for the first glimpse of the Ngorongoro Crater, an ancient volcanic caldera that is home to an unparalleled concentration of wildlife including one of the densest populations of Masai lion. At 610 metres deep with a steep ridge, the crater forms a natural enclosure that contains animals ranging from black rhino, hippo and buffalo to zebra, gazelle and cheetah.

Mount Kilimanjaro - Africa's tallest peak

View on map
Mount Kilimanjaro | Tanzania | Africa

Standing at a height of 5896 metres, Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and forms the centrepiece of the Mt. Kilimajaro National Park. Each year some 25,000 intrepid hikers visit the park to conquer the summit, making it Tanzania's most visited national park. Comprised of three volcanic cones, Mount Kilimanjaro stands above cultivated farmland and verdant forest home to ample wildlife including elephant and leopard.
