Tanzania is one of the best safari destinations you can choose in Africa. There’s an incredible amount of wildlife in a wide variety of national parks and game reserves, some of which only receive a hand full of tourists every year and if you choose amongst them, this could give you the exclusivity you are looking for.
Safari in northern Tanzania – bring you and thousands of others to the world famous National Parks, often with a starting point in Arusha – the main city in northern Tanzania.If you want to experience the most famous parts of Tanzania this is the trip for you. Here you can spend lots of time admiring the wild as you get as close to it as possible.
Northern Tanzania is the richest wildlife safari area in the East Africa or probably in Africa, so a visit here you will never forget.
With many large and ecologically significant wildlife parks and reserves, such as the famous Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park, Lake Manyara and Tarangire, Tanzania offers an array of safari options for you, from mountain trekking and hiking, game viewing safari in the national parks, walking excursions and cultural/tribal tours to various villages.
The most popular safaris in Tanzania usually include several parks in the north of the country, and these are also the most known sites to visit. Many people are expecting to see the “The Big 5”, known by big game hunters as the most difficult animals in Africa to hunt on foot. Lion, leopard, rhinoceros (both black and white species), Elephant, and Cape buffalo are all possible to spot here.
Most known are probably the safari destination in the north of Tanzania like Serengeti and the Ngorongoro crater. But Tanzania’s southern parks are more untouched and unspoiled, and you are more likely to have your “prey” by yourself and your camera of course. If you want a real bush experience, then you should include the parks in the south in your package.
Western Tanzania is the least visited part of Tanzania but perhaps the most interesting if you are a traveller with a sense of adventure. Western Tanzania is the only area where you can see chimpanzees in their natural habitat, and don’t forget the ultimate and authentic wilderness -Katavi National Park. The only downside is that the travel by road is long and tough, and by plane quite expensive.
The smallest, but still very interesting, of the safari circuits. Sadaani National Park is the only place where you can meet wildlife on the beach; the only place Bush meets Beach! And the Rhino sanctuary in Mkomazi is a very interesting detour en route from Arusha to the Indian Ocean around Tanga and Pangani.
