Tanzania is wild. No fences hinder the wildlife to roam free. Tanzania is diverse. The protected areas encompass mountains, wetlands, islands, savannas, forests and beaches. Marine Sanctuaries protect reefs and their inhabitants. You can drive to see the wildlife and diverse habitats, you can walk or go by boat and plane. Tanzania is not only Serengeti and Ngorongoro. We love Tarangire in the dry season, when thousands of Elephants roam the park and look for shadow under age old Baobab trees, Ruaha and Katavi as the lesser visited and wilder alternatives to Serengeti, Selous for its stunning waterways full of hippos and Crocs and of course for its wild dogs (and let’s not forget the superb birding!). We love chimps and so we cherish the 3 places in Tanzania to see them in the wild very much: Mahale, Gombe and Rubondo Island.
How should I travel?
If you come for the first time to Africa you must see the big 5, no question. We give you a 4×4 and a friendly and highly knowledgeable driver guide and send you for a couple of days on the northern circuit. Most classic itineraries consist of Tarangire, Manyara, Ngorongoro and Serengeti. You always have the choice to stay in a comfortable lodge, a luxury or high-end lodge, a comfortable tented camp or a luxury tented camp. Tented camps are always en-suite, but when we go on a walking safari, you will get a separate, private toilet tent.
Our safaris are mostly a mix of classic 4×4 and fly-in safari (to get to the more remote parks which are inaccessible by car). For those who cannot get enough of wildlife, add Selous, Ruaha or Katavi to your northern circuit trip or fly to Mahale to see the chimps or to Rwanda to see the gorillas.
We would love to hear from you what experiences you would like to make in our stunning country.
