About Tanzania Wildlife Safari

From wildlife spectacles to inspiring landscapes, Tanzania has everything you could want from a safari

Tanzania wildlife safaris offer an unparalleled experience for nature enthusiasts and adventure seekers. Home to some of the most iconic and diverse ecosystems on the planet, Tanzania’s national parks and reserves provide a sanctuary for a stunning array of wildlife. The Serengeti National Park, famous for its annual wildebeest migration, showcases a breathtaking spectacle as millions of animals traverse the plains. Meanwhile, the Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a unique haven where visitors can observe a dense concentration of game within a collapsed volcanic caldera.

The country’s varied landscapes, from the baobab-studded Tarangire National Park to the verdant Selous Game Reserve, offer opportunities to see the Big Five—lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino—alongside countless other species in their natural habitats. Whether on a guided game drive, a walking safari, or a balloon ride over the savannah, Tanzania’s wildlife safaris provide an unforgettable journey into the heart of the wild.

What happens on a Safari?

A safari immerses you in nature with game drives in 4×4 vehicles to spot animals like the Big Five, guided by experts. Early morning and late afternoon drives offer the best sightings, while walking safaris and boat trips provide unique perspectives. Night drives reveal nocturnal wildlife, and cultural visits to local communities, such as Maasai villages, add a rich, human element. Dining in the bush and luxury accommodations enhance the experience, making every moment of the adventure both thrilling and comfortable.

Kilimanjaro Trip via Marangu Route I hiked Kilimanjaro in December 2022 and it was an awesome experience thanks to the good organization of the trip from George! I had the best Crew and guide with me, helping to reach the Uhuru peak! I will never forget this adventure. Also the day trip to the Materuni waterfalls included in my package was very nice and I really enjoyed. I can recommend to visit Materuni villages and see how coffee is locally produced!

Amazing Experience with Nyamera Treks and Safaris!!! I had the pleasure of climbing Kilimanjaro with Nyamera Treks and Safaris a few weeks ago. George and his team are true professionals. They ensured we were moving at an appropriate pace to make the summit. George's guides and porters were amazing. Their attentiveness made our experience even more special. I would definitely book a trip with Nyamera again!

Useful information for planning your Safari holiday in Tanzania

The official languages of Tanzania are Kiswahili and English. More than 100 different languages are spoken across the country, but almost everybody at popular visitor destinations will be able to speak some English.

Tanzania’s unit of currency is the Tanzanian Shilling, but our advice is to use US Dollars only – and in cash: credit cards and traveller’s cheques (although accepted in most establishments) incur transaction fees. ATMs are found throughout the major towns and cities in Tanzania, but not in the national parks and game reserves.

Note: US Dollar bills printed before 2006 are not accepted in Tanzania.

Tipping is not mandatory in Tanzania but is a custom. Is a way of showing gratitude after receiving good service. Tipping is a personal thing though tipping guides for Tanzania range from $10- $ 20 per day. So do your simple math to add on your safari cost.

In Tanzania, be sure to indulge in the flavorful delights of Ugali, a maize-based staple, often paired with succulent Nyama Choma, grilled meat infused with aromatic spices. Don’t miss out on the fragrant Pilau, a rice dish cooked with a symphony of spices, or the savory Mishkaki skewers, perfect for a quick street food fix.

For a sweet touch, savor the coconut-infused Mandazi, a fried bread treat. Wash it all down with Chai Masala, a spicy tea blend, or a cup of locally grown Tanzanian coffee, renowned for its rich flavor. Dive into Tanzania’s culinary scene for a taste of its vibrant culture and diverse flavors.

Tanzania has a pleasant, tropical climate, but it has large regional climatic variations influenced by several factors, including altitude. The hottest and most humid part of the country is the coast. Other low-lying areas, such as the western and southern parks, are also hot but less humid. The rest of the interior is much milder and often cold at night. Tanzania has a distinct Dry and Wet season.

In Tanzania you could track the Big Five or see the Great Migration, summit Mount Kilimanjaro, relax on white-sand beaches, and snorkel on coral reefs teeming with tropical fish.

An incredibly diverse destination, Tanzania’s wildlife is a major draw and for many visitors, the highlight is witnessing the Great Migration of two million wildebeest, zebra, and gazelles across the Serengeti. For others, it’s tracking the Big Five in the Ngorongoro Crater, taking a hot air balloon flight over herds of elephant or giraffe, or tracking chimpanzees. Or you may want to slow down on a boating safari in Nyerere National Park or a walking safari in Ruaha National Park and get closer to smaller species.

Alternatively, you could take on the challenge of hiking up Mount Kilimanjaro on a multi-day trek, see turtles off the coast, visit traditional villages, or simply laze on powder-soft sands and swim in turquoise seas.

In Tanzania you can stay in rustic safari camps, luxurious lodges, on private islands, and in ocean-front resorts with extensive facilities. While on safari, you’ll have the choice of opting for simple tented camps where you’ll wake to the sound of wildlife at a nearby watering hole, or stylishly intimate lodges hidden deep in the forest.

Elsewhere, you could stay at a luxurious coastal resort with lots of activities, choose private villas, simple cottages, or even an underwater room. If it’s local history and character you’re after, you can stay in a former sultan’s palace in Zanzibar’s Stone Town.

You could visit Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Mount Kilimanjaro, and Zanzibar on a trip to Tanzania, among many other wildlife areas. Most visitors choose to visit national parks that link together geographically to make the most of their time, and then follow the adventure of a safari with time relaxing on the white sands of Tanzania’s coast or islands.

Tanzania’s safari areas can be divided into the northern, southern, and western circuits. In the north are Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater, and Tarangire and Lake Manyara national parks. In the south, you could visit Nyerere National Park and Ruaha National Park, while to the west Katavi and Mahale Mountains national parks combine well. If you’re up for a challenge, you could tag on a climb up Mount Kilimanjaro before unwinding on the palm-fringed beaches in Zanzibar.

A safari in Tanzania is a great way to see the Big Five — lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and the black rhino — but you’ll also see giraffe, zebra, and occasionally cheetah, among many other species. Two million wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle cross the Serengeti during the Great Migration and in their wake a slew of predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, and crocodiles follow.

A boat safari in Nyerere National Park promises sightings of hippo, sable antelope, and vibrant birdlife, while hiking in Mahale Mountains National Park, brings the prospect of spotting chimpanzees sweeping through the trees.

Main International Airports

Kilimanjaro International Airport – Tanzania’s second international airport – serves the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire and Lake Manyara. However, you need to transfer to nearby Arusha Airport for charter flights to these safari destinations. International flights often arrive at Kilimanjaro Airport late in the day, so an overnight stay in Arusha is usually necessary. Dar-es-Salaam International Airport – Tanzania’s main airport – is the gateway to the Indian Ocean coast and Zanzibar, as well as Nyerere National Park (previously Selous) and Ruaha National Park.

The best way to get around Tanzania is by road or by air. You could travel around Tanzania with a private driver-guide learning about the country and its wildlife as you journey between destinations or combine road travel with some internal flights to see the diversity of Tanzania’s landscapes in a fast, efficient way.

Guided road transfers and game drives in Tanzania are conducted in closed 4x4s with big windows and pop-up roofs, although visitors to destinations like Mahale will enjoy a boat transfer across Lake Tanganyika. Most safari destinations have extensive road networks and closed vehicles are therefore the norm when doing long-distance road transfers between airstrips, camps and lodges in Tanzania.

A closed 4×4 game drive vehicle generally has three rows of seating and features a pop-up roof hatch that can be raised for game viewing and taking photographs.

Yes, visitors to Tanzania can use public transport, including daladalas (minibuses), city buses, bodabodas (motorcycle taxis), and tuk-tuks. These options are affordable and widely available, but can be crowded and less comfortable. For greater convenience and reliability, especially when traveling to tourist destinations or remote areas, private car hire or guided tours are recommended.

Almost all visitors to Tanzania require a visa. You must contact the relevant issuing authorities in good time (ideally, several months in advance) to ascertain the entry requirements to Tanzania, and to arrange the necessary permits and visas. We strongly encourage all clients entering Tanzania via Kilimanjaro International Airport to obtain their visas online at the Tanzania Immigration Department before arriving in Tanzania. E-visas can take 2 to 3 weeks to be issued.

Your doctor can provide you with vaccine advice for Tanzania, but you should also ensure you’re up to date with the recommended vaccinations for your home country.

If you’re coming from or transiting through a country affected by yellow fever, the government of Tanzania may request proof of vaccination against the disease. Check the list of countries at risk of yellow fever and speak to your doctor as vaccination is not advised for everyone.

When traveling to Tanzania, ensure your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your planned departure date and has at least two blank pages for visa stamps.

Additionally, keep copies of your passport, both physical and digital, in case it gets lost or stolen. By checking these details, you can ensure a smooth entry into Tanzania.
