Tanzania Bush and Beach

Marvel at the incredible diversity of Tanzania on this safari which combines Tanzania’s world-renowned northern reserves with the exotic island of Zanzibar, which lies off the country’s tropical east coast. Glimpse the country’s highest peak – Mount Kilimanjaro, explore the world’s largest unbroken caldera and see the wildlife of the celebrated Serengeti, before relaxing on a perfect white sand beach outside of fascinating Stone Town.

Tanzania lends itself to tailor made safaris, and we can design an itinerary to suit your requirements using road and/or air transfers and your choice of lodges, camps or full service camping. Tours can depart with a minimum of 2 guests any day of the week.

This sample itinerary can easily be amended to suit your interests. The cost of your safari will depend on the number of nights and the standard of accommodation used. Our tailor-made safaris are based on exclusive use of a vehicle, so are also ideal for private family safaris and small group travel.

Tanzania Overview

Why Tanzania: Few places in the world can offer the immense diversity and quantity of game found in Tanzania, nor the ease of viewing it. Tanzania is also the arena for the great wildebeest and zebra migration and has some of Africa’s most stunning scenery.

Game Viewing: The best time to visit is November to May when the wildebeest herds amass on the Serengeti’s southern plains. Feb/Mar is when the herds are calving. The dry season (Jun to Sep) is the best time to visit Tarangire and the Selous.

Culture: With some 120 tribes, Tanzania is culturally very diverse, with peoples ranging from the Nilotic Maasai to Hadza bushmen, the Makonde (famous for their wood carvings) and Swahili-speaking coast-dwellers, some descended from Arabs.

Climate: Much of the Serengeti is over 5,000 ft so temperatures vary between 22°- 29°C. It is generally sunny and windy, with rain falling between Nov – May as isolated showers. The low-lying Rift Valley is much hotter (30°-35°C), while the coast is hot and humid. The Ngorongoro Highlands can be cool to cold at night.

Combine With: Kenya. Most visitors arrive via Nairobi in Kenya so it is easy to combine parks in the two countries. Kenya’s famous Masai Mara is an extension of the Serengeti and the wildebeest migration can be found here in September/October.

Getting There: You can fly via Johannesburg in South Africa then north to Nairobi in Kenya. Or fly via the Middle East to Nairobi. We can organise road transfers from there to Arusha, the “safari capital” of northern Tanzania; alternatively, you can fly into Kilimanjaro Airport.
