Why Tanzania safaris are truly unique

The sweeping plains of the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater in the north offer the safari of drama and legend, whilst Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro, needs little introduction and looms proudly with brightly snow-capped peaks. The spice island of Zanzibar tantalises with turquoise shades, white shimmering sands and UNESCO heritage, enhancing the kaleidoscopic variety of Tanzania, making it all the more alluring for any African safari enthusiast, or first-timer.

Tanzania is thought by some to be the pinnacle of East African safari holidays. 

Tanzania Safari Reviews

  • Jordan and Rayne have been back for a couple of weeks and by all accounts had amazing wildlife sightings - mission accomplished. The Tanzania guide who I think was named Henry was excellent and exceeded Jordan's expectations. The guide knew you and thought that you were first class; apparently you had given him a book.

  • Thank you for organising what proved to be a hugely enjoyable and memorable trip. It more than exceeded our expectations. Every one of the camps and lodges was superb. We were knocked out by the experience at Oliver's Camp and Ubuntu. What a wealth of sights and sensations! From the exciting and fascinating walk in the area of Oliver's camp to driving out of the Crater and looking back from the rim, to standing on the border of Kenya, it was all breathtaking and we will never forget it.

  • Really how does each day surpass the previous when that was special. Were at Ngorongoro Crater yesterday - pride of lions, with 4 males, passed right in front of us & we were the only ones there! Guide is incredible: accommodations the very best. Thanks for your work. Sue, Jim, & Sharon also say hi and much thanks.

  • Loved Oliver's Campground. Gibbs Farm was also excellent but I don't think it fits the mindset for a 'camping safari'. I prefer the tent camping. The safari and game drives were more than we expected - we saw every animal in Tanzania and witnessed up close and personal some very interesting behaviors. The tent accommodations were luxurious and Gibbs Farm was over the top. Food was excellent and hard to believe it could be prepared so well in the middle of Africa.

  • Good idea to do Olakira before Siwandu. Really can't fault either camp. NWS really made every effort to accommodate our quite complex and demanding criteria. Ended up being a pretty perfect trip. Trusted to understand our needs and make great recommendations..

  • Jongomero was particularly wonderful - isolated, informal but superb service and very comfortable. Best safari camp we have stayed at anywhere in Africa. Siwandu was similar, but a bit more formal, and came a very close second. Kiba Point was very good but was not quite as smoothly run as the others

  • Fortunately we used this company for a trip to Borneo a couple of years ago to see Orangutans in the wild. The trip was faultless and exceeded our expectations in every respect so, when we decided to look at an African safari, we told them what we were looking for and they built a bespoke itinerary for us. We compared this with other operators and because this is not an inexpensive trip we really wanted to make sure that our money was well spent. I am happy to report that our safari was just perfect and we saw everything that we wanted to including 6 wildebeest crossings of the Mara River.

  • Kevin Mlay was the best [guide]. Expert in African wildlife and birds. Extremely friendly and funny! Oliver's Camp ,Gibbs farm were particularly nice. Dunia and Olakira were great too. On Zanzibar we really enjoyed shooting star as smaller and more private.

SERENGETI PLAINS & VARIED ECOSYSTEMS

Home to some of the most breathtaking wildlife viewing and tracking in Africa, if not the world, 25% of Tanzania is protected by national parks which are estimated to support about 20% of Africa's mammal population. The world-renowned Serengeti is extraordinarily vast (5,700 square miles - ten times larger than the Masai Mara) and is widely considered by researchers and travellers alike to be one of the most prime locations to see throngs of wildlife, including the ‘Big Five’ as well as cheetah and crocodile. It also plays host to the famed Wildebeest Migration and its millions of thundering hooves as they cross the savannah, eagerly tracked by hungry predators.


The 20km-wide Ngorongoro Crater forms part of a conservation area and is known to many as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’. As the largest intact collapsed caldera on earth, with walls of up to 600 metres, the crater itself is an ecosystem whose floor is filled with virtually every animal species in East Africa, including the predators, giving the wildlife enthusiast an unprecedented up close and personal view of wildlife in action. Further south, the more undeveloped riverine parks of Selous and Ruaha offer more remote brilliance and adventure, with boating or walking safaris operated from intimate and luxurious lodges. Katavi National Park and the Mahale Mountains both offer exciting alternatives, the latter of which is home to habituated chimpanzees.

Tanzania is home to some of the most diverse ecosystems, resulting in some of the most impressive wildlife!

EASY TRAVEL

Tanzania is ahead of most African nations with safe routes and excellent quality accommodation from mobile tented camps to luxury lodges. It is also a launch pad to a number of possible primate itineraries in the southern and western circuits and can be easily combined with a Uganda or Rwanda gorilla trekking safari.

Many decide to combine a Tanzania safari with a stay on idyllic Zanzibar to experience the breadth of diversity that this thrilling country has to offer, and to finish off that African wildlife safari with some well earned, relaxing beach time.

Tanzania’s amazing wildlife can easily be combined with beautiful beaches, or even the mountain gorillas of Rwanda.
