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.

What an awesome holiday, the crew (Godfrey, Duncan & Alouis) were 5 star, incredibly professional, caring and very entertaining. There was no doubt the group were in very capable hands throughout. I think they deserve a raise. Highly recommend this crew & tour company. Best wishes guys. Walburg Ireland”

We had a great time but there were a lot of long travel days. From dar es Saleem to Malawi was two very long days on the truck the first being 15 hours which included two stops by seemingly corrupt police pulling over the tourist trucks in Tanzania. The food was really great by our cook Joseph and our driver Stephen was lovely and did a great job. 6 years ago we did a tour with you also in Africa and the local payment covered the tips for our included activities. This time we were asked to give tips however we much preferred the way it was organised by our guide last time. There was a lot more upgrade options this time which was nice to get some much needed rest when needed. It would be great to get curtains on the truck as it gets very very hot in the window seats with the sun coming in. Overall we had a great trip and look forward to exploring other countries with you. Thank you to Nicola for promptly handling any requests or questions during the booking process.”

Loved it! Our crew was fantastic...Leah, our Lead kept us organized and on schedule with good humour; our cook Reuben kept us well fed with tasty, satisfying meals prepared with great care and pride; Isa, our driver expertly manoeuvred the overland vehicle over all kinds of terrain ensuring we arrived at our destinations safely. They were warm, welcoming and gracious hosts who did everything they could to ensure we enjoyed our trip.

Being there during the migration meant that we got to see the "Big 5"! Our game driver, William was wonderful and his experience was invaluable.

The safari camps were great. Most had shower and toilet facilities, free wifi and a place to get a beverage after setting up camp.

The optional sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Maasai Mara followed by a champagne breakfast was worth every penny.

There were a lot of early mornings and long days but all worth it. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.

My only suggestion to enhance this package would be to offer optional upgraded accommodations for pre and post safari nights.

Many thanks to travel consultant Sam at OTG for his assistance in arranging this memorable vacation!”

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.
