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.
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. Since you can fly into Kilimanjaro International Airport (situated between the towns of Arusha and Moshi) you can also avoid the long distances of travel, and get into the wilderness as quickly as possible.
- Serengeti National Park
- Ngorongoro Conservation Area
- Lake Manyara National Park
- Tarangire National Park
- Arusha National Park
- Mount Kilimanjaro National Park
Most safaris in Tanzania include parks in the north of the country 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 cause. 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.
- Rubondo Island National Park
- Gombe Stream National Park
- Mahale Mountians National Park
- Katavi National Park
- Kitulo National Park
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.
