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

With over a third of the country dedicated as protected areas and home to Africa's famed Big 5 as well as over 120 different tribes, it's no wonder Tanzania frequently tops the list of favourite safari destinations.

Year-round you'll discover that Tanzania is a land of outstanding natural beauty from the vast plains of the Serengeti to the dramatic Ngorongoro Crater, crowned by the iconic Mt. Kilimanjaro, the world's largest free-standing mountain. Then there's the idyllic Zanzibar Archipelago where several pristine islands lie off Tanzania's coast in the Indian Ocean. With fine white sand beaches, palm-fringed shores and crystal clear waters, Zanzibar and its neighbouring islands are a slice of paradise that beautifully complement a 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.
