Safari & Travel Packages to Tanzania

Tanzania Map

The quintessential safari destination, Tanzania is famous for its incomparable year-round game viewing, including the thrilling spectacle of the Great Wildebeest Migration. While it’s true that witnessing the migration is one of the main drawcards for a Tanzania safarithe diversity of landscapes in this incredible corner of Africa is equally rewarding to experience on wildlife tours, stretching from Arusha in the north, the wide-open savannah plains of the Serengeti and the jewel-green slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater, to the snow-capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro to the tropical shores of Zanzibar island 

To take in the best of Tanzania, most safari packages will include the Ngorongoro Cratera 100 square mile enclosed ecosystem and World Heritage Site which supports around 30,000 animals. This ancient caldera, which is considered the best place in East Africa to view the Big 5, is also home to Tarangire National Park, which boasts the largest elephant population in Tanzania. Beyond the showstopper safari destinations in Tanzania, there are hidden gems to be explored: chimpanzee trekking in Mahale Mountains National Park or Rubondo Island and fly camping in the Selous Game Reserve.   

Of course, one of the greatest things about a Tanzania safari package is that you can end your wildlife tour with an island vacation, hot-air balloon safari, soaking up the sun on a palm-fringed beach in Zanzibar; Tanzania’s very own Indian Ocean island or having the ultimate African honeymoon and combining a beach and wildlife safari.  

Best Time to Visit Tanzania:

The best time to visit Tanzania for a safari is typically within the dry season (June through October). It is during this period that the Great Migration reaches the Grumeti River. However, game viewing is generally superb throughout the year, with calving season just after the summer rains between December and February. However, we have Great Migration travel packages for throughout the year. If you’re interested in a beach trip or diving off the coasts of Zanzibar, then the clearer waters between February and March or between July and August are recommended. 



The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a wildlife sanctuary, an ancient caldera home to an abundance of animals.

The vast Serengeti stretches for thousands of miles in northern Tanzania, the scene of the Great Migration.

From red colobus monkeys to the scents of cinnamon and clove, Zanzibar brings with it a thousand delights.
