What to expect on a Tanzania Safari

A Journey to Tanzania

Africa holds a special magic—stunning sunsets that make time stand still, remote locations where the brilliance of the night stars takes your breath away, and encounters with nature that change your perspective on the world.

The best way to experience Africa’s natural beauty is on a wildlife safari, allowing you to get close to wild animals in their natural habitat while supporting national environmental conservation efforts through protected areas and national parks.

Why Choose Tanzania for Your Safari?

Of all the African nations, Tanzania stands out as the top safari destination. A safari in Tanzania is more than just a vacation; it’s a travel experience that will make you fall in love with nature and embrace the wild’s beauty in a new way.

Tanzania is where Jane Goodall fell in love with chimpanzees, transforming her life and motivating her to change the world at Gombe National Park. It’s where Louis and Mary Leakey made one of the most significant archaeological discoveries at Olduvai Gorge, which continues to be excavated today. It has inspired artists and writers for centuries, including Ernest Hemingway, who wrote “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” here.

What is a Safari?

A safari, derived from the Swahili word meaning ‘a journey,’ is a travel experience that allows visitors to explore Africa’s largest national parks, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and the continent’s highest mountain.

Why Tanzania?

Tanzania is the best country in Africa for a safari, boasting the largest national parks, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and the highest mountain in Africa. Serengeti National Park, awarded the ‘Best Safari Destination’ multiple years in a row, solidifies Tanzania’s top position.

A safari in Tanzania offers:

  • The Great Wildebeest Migration, the largest animal movement globally, occurring in Serengeti National Park for nine months a year.
  • The opportunity to combine a safari adventure with climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak.
  • The only place to find the rare gemstone Tanzanite.
  • The largest population density and diversity of animals in Africa, including healthy herds of elephants, rhino sanctuaries, and the largest population of lions on the planet.

What to Expect on a Safari in Tanzania

A typical African safari involves game drives guided by professional guides through protected areas. Your guide will explain the environment and wildlife, allowing you to take incredible photos. You may also have opportunities for walking safaris or tree-top walks in some locations.

Game Drives

Safaris often include lengthy game drives, typically 6-8 hours long, with early morning departures to catch elusive animals like cheetahs. You can choose to return to your lodge early for other activities or stay in the park until closing time. Many hotels are located within national parks, allowing you to enjoy the comforts of award-winning properties and view animals directly from your terrace.

Considerations for Families

Consider the attention span and comfort of young children during long game drives. Safaris are exciting with many animals to see, but they can be tiresome for young travelers.
