As one of the most naturally diverse countries on earth, Tanzania offers a true “out of Africa” wilderness experience. Highlights include the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, Lake Victoria (the world’s second-largest freshwater lake), the sweeping planes of the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater (the world’s largest unbroken caldera). It’s also home to the Selous – the largest game reserve in Africa!

This stunning East African country is famous for the Great Wildebeest Migration – the epic journey of around 2 million animals (wildebeest, zebra and gazelle) across the Serengeti ecosystem. It’s also a country of colours, from the red soil and fresh green foliage of banana leaves to the blue flowers of the jacaranda tree. Most colourful, though, are the people of Tanzania – friendly and welcoming, they treat you with warmth and courtesy.
With Tanzania’s many safari parks, we have chosen the best and most developed itineraries to suit a variety of needs. The Northern Circuit offers some of the world’s most diverse safari experiences, comprising many of the best reserves, including Tarangire and Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, Arusha and Serengeti National Park. Whether you want to experience the Great Migration, visit the Rift Valley, bush walk with a Masai warrior or soar on a balloon safari over the Serengeti, we can organise this for you. And what better way to round off your Tanzania safari than a stay on a beautiful white sand beach on Zanzibar Island?
It’s also home to the Nyerere – the largest National Park in Africa, which offers a host of activities including game drives, boating safari’s, game & birding walks as well as fishing and village visits. With all this on offer it works well as a single destination safari twinned with beach time in Zanzibar.

When to go
Tanzanian weather is tropical, with the coastal areas and islands having warm and humid weather. On safari, you will experience between 3000 and 8000 feet of elevation, which means warmer days and cooler nights. The Ngorongoro Crater tends to be much cooler as it is so high up.
April is the wettest month, with most of the lodges closed during this period. The hottest months are December-March with temperatures reaching the low 30s during the day and dropping to 15-20℃ at night.
June-October generally sees the driest weather and coincides with the incredible spectacle of the Great Migration in the Serengeti. However, temperatures can drop low on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater at this time of year, so pack warm clothing if you are including a stay here.
Flights: We recommend flying via Doha to Kilimanjaro with BA, Qatar and Oman Air or via Nairobi with Kenya Airways to access the Northern Circuit. The Southern Circuit is best accessed via Dar es Salaam flying with BA and Qatar via Doha, Emirates via Dubai or Kenya Airways via Nairobi. KLM also offers good flight options via Amsterdam.
Typical carbon emissions for a return flight (Economy) per person: 533 kg.
