Safari Plan

Tanzania is notably in the World for its richness in wildlife and birdlife national parks let alone the series of highest Mountains in Africa and the World at large. Been the case Tanzania has acquired large amount of tourist enthusiastic with nature comparing with other countries in Africa.

Nature and Natural Resources estimates that more than 350 different species of mammals roam the country. An easy way to watch wildlife and birdlife is to book a private or group safari, known as an overland safari. Since safaris are often once-in-a-lifetime tour, expeditions and adventures, it's crucial to get it right the first time. Here's how:

Choosing the Right Safari

Determine what you want out of the experience of Tanzania wildlife, birdlife, beach holiday, walking safari, mountain climbing, cultural touring, agro-cultural touring and/or other community development project visiting. Tanzania has 15 national parks full of numerous birdlife and wildlife Serengeti, Manyara, Tarangire, Arusha, Mikumi, (Selous - reserved, Ngorongoro - conserved), Ruaha, Udzungwa, Gombe, Mahale, Katavi, Saadani, Mkomazi, Saanane and Rubondo Island national park. Each park has unique landscape, wildlife and birdlife.

Famous safari in Tanzania includes the great wildlife migration of Serengeti and contiguous Maasi Mara national park? The Chimpanzee trekking in Gombe national park? Elephants or leopards viewing in Serengeti, Selous and Tarangire? Walking safari inside national parks and around the mountains, or mountain Kilimanjaro, Meru climbing and Oldoinyo Lengai trekking? Flying between destinations, or driving? Staying at an enclosed campsite or an unfenced one? The lap of bush luxury or a minimalist bush camp? Contact our touring specialist for tailor-made safari.

Deciding How Long to Stay

Mike Nesbitt, president of the African Safari Company, recommends taking a safari that lasts at least ten days so you can experience more than one park. "But don't try to do more than two countries during a two-week trip," says Nesbitt. "Otherwise you'll spend too much time at airports and be forced to stay overnight in big cities. Flight schedules between countries are usually only once a day, if that, and frequently don't connect conveniently." Shorter safaris are rewarding if well arranged. You can visit the Maasai Mara in Kenya in three days, for instance, because it's a small park. If exploring a bigger region, such as the Serengeti in Tanzania, "you could easily spend eight to ten days and never be bored," says Nesbitt.
