A Tanzania safari has something for everyone looking for a genuine African safari experience. Although climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and doing a safari through the northern circuit (Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, and Serengeti) are the most well-known activities, there are many more isolated safari circuits that are just as beautiful.
A Tanzania safari requires meticulous preparation in terms of scheduling, weather, and sites, particularly in light of animal migrations and the Great Migration. We will be able to direct you to the ideal spots so that you may include all of your own interests into your Tanzania safari.
Investigate the possibilities of a Tanzania safari.
Tanzania is ideal for those searching for a classic safari experience, with different landscapes, unique culture, and large herds of animals. Tanzania’s principal way of wildlife watching is game drives; however, there are properties that provide walking safaris (Serengeti Bushtops), crater walks (Entamanu Ngorongoro), boating (Sand Rivers Selous), chimp trekking (Greystoke Mahale), and fishing (Rubondo Island). There are excellent multi-day walking opportunities throughout the shoulder and green seasons.
Tanzania is also ideal for return safari visitors or those want to venture off the main path. Lesser-known parks like as Katavi, Mahale Mountains, Ruaha, and Selous are very remote and wild, making it easy to feel alone on safari. If you want to avoid tiny flights, a safari in Tanzania with a private driver-guide and vehicle works well.
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest peak, is one of Tanzania’s most exhilarating activities.
After a hectic safari, it’s simple to extend to Zanzibar or Mafia Island for diving, snorkeling, fishing, or just resting. Beach activities in Zanzibar include diving, snorkeling, dhow cruises, and fishing. For additional culture, visit Stone Town, take a spice tour, or head to Jozani Forest to see the colobus monkeys.
A hot air balloon ride above the Serengeti is an unforgettable way to discover Tanzania.
Where to go on a safari in Tanzania
The Grumeti Reserve, in our view, is the cream of the crop—one of the most incredible sites in all of Africa, with Faru Faru Lodge being a popular modern camp.
If you aren’t interested in the Great Migration, we propose going to the northern Serengeti in the off-season (January to mid-March, June, and November to mid-December). The environment is breathtaking, and since most species do not migrate like wildebeest, you will get plenty of alone time with all of the permanent animals, including big cats and antelope herds. Lamai Serengeti, Singita Mara River, and Lemala Kuria Hills are some of our favorite camps.
During certain periods of the year, the Ngorongoro Crater may get congested. We suggest picking a camp like Entamanu, which is located in remote Maasai land. Good tip: Go on game drives early in the morning rather than late in the day.
If you’ve already seen the Serengeti, try returning to western or southern Tanzania. We particularly like the slower safari pace at Chem Chem Lodge, which is hidden between Tarangire and Lake Manyara. For something a little more distant and off the beaten road, we recommend both Ruaha in the south (including Ikuka Safari Camp and Kigelia Ruaha) and the Mahale Mountains in the west for some of Africa’s greatest chimp trekking. And for some barefoot beach luxury away from the masses, The Manta Resort on Pemba Island is not to be missed.

Do you want to visit other places in addition to Tanzania? To simply combine Tanzania and Kenya, you may travel straight between the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara. For gorilla trekking, you may travel straight between Serengeti and Kigali, Rwanda.
When Should You Visit Tanzania?
Tanzania’s prime season runs from July to October and from December to February – the dry seasons when wildlife is easiest to locate. Consider May, November, and early December to avoid crowds, but be prepared for rain. If you want to visit western or southern Tanzania, May to early October are ideal, since the rest of the year may be quite hot. Tanzania has heavy rains in April and May, so be prepared for impassable roads and muddy, buggy conditions – campgrounds in western and southern Tanzania are closed.
If you want to see the migration, go from January to early March, June/July, or late October to mid-December (we’ll recommend the ideal camp spot according to your trip month). Keep in mind that weather patterns are shifting all across the planet, impacting animal migration.
Tanzania: The Best Choice is Luxurious & Exclusive Safaris
Cheap itineraries may start as little as $300 per person per night, however, this is at the low end of the market for mass-market tourism, and we do not endorse or offer these excursions. During peak season, premium, luxury accommodations cost between $600-$1,300 per person per night, with the most exclusive homes costing up to $2,700 per person per night. We do not recommend spending less than $500 per person per night on a Tanzania safari for the finest experience.
