The Wildebeest Migration, Mount Kilimanjaro and surprisingly deserted beaches

From following the spectacular great migration of animals across the Serengeti to climbing the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro, watching hippos float in Lake Manyara or swimming with gentle whale sharks in the Indian Ocean, you are spoiled for choice when it comes to Tanzania. 

If you time your luxury safari in Tanzania right, seeing the wildebeest migration across the vast open savannahs is an incredible experience.

Drive right into the heart of thousands of stomping mammals making their way to Kenya, and hold your breath as they cross the Grumeti River filled with hungry crocodiles.

Continue on to the nearby Ngorongoro Crater; UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most beautiful natural safari regions in the world.

Get your camera ready as the abundance of wildlife here will amaze you, with black rhinos, hippos, lions and bright pink flamingos roaming around the crater floor.

Stay overnight at a hotel perched on the rim for seemingly endless views of the crater from your bedroom window or breakfast table.

Ruaha National Park’s vast outback lets you witness an abundance of animals at the Great Ruaha River, drive right up to the largest herds of elephants in East Africa and even encounter hunting lion prides waiting to pounce on a stray buffalo.

Contrast Ruaha with Selous and explore the land by foot or boat safari for a chance to see the elusive leopard.

Explore the powdery white coastlines, along with trips to Mafia Island or Zanzibar, or meet primates by combining your trip with an excursion to Rwanda.

Experience a Tanzania safari with the most knowledgeable and best local guides, combined with stays in Tanzania's best luxury lodges.

Uniquely crafted for you, your Tanzania safari will be refined until it perfectly matches your vision. The possibilities for African adventures in Tanzania are endless.

Our Safaris & Tours in Tanzania

Climb Mount Kilimanjaro along the Machame trekking route. It's the shorter and incredibly scenic route, taking you to Uhuru peak just in time for sunrise. Alternatively, take the longer and more remote trail of Lemosho to Shira Plateau where you can soak up more of the mountains sacred energy. Find out more about the Lemosho trail here. Explore the best of Tanzania with our Remote Tanzania Safari & Beach itinerary or follow millions of mammals searching for fresher pastures on our Great Migration Safari. 

Best times to visit Tanzania

Climb Mount Kilimanjaro during the drier months; between December and March or July, August and September as it will be warmer and more comfortable to trek up Africa’s highest mountain. The Serengeti National Park, Tarangire National Park, Selous Game Reserve, Ruaha National Park and Mahale Mountains National Park are great spots for game viewing, and in the drier seasons, incredible amounts of species can be found around watering holes. From June until October, the dry season also means that animals will be easier to spot since the most of the vegetation dies off, and in June and July the Serengeti offers incredible displays of the wildebeest migration.

Destinations in Tanzania

Trek up Mount Kilimanjaro to the Uhuru (‘freedom’ in Swahili) peak - one of the most thrilling spots in Africa. There are seven popular routes up Kilimanjaro, with the most popular ones being Machame and Lemosho. The Machame route is steeper, more scenic and faster, but Lemosho has fewer people and more stops allowing for altitude adjustment. The Lemosho Route offers the best chance of getting to the summit compared to the other trails.  

Watch the great migration of wildebeest, zebras and other mammals run right past you as they make the yearly relocation to greener pastures across the Serengeti grasslands. Head to the more remote Selous Game Reserve in southern Tanzania for more flexible game watching, either by car, bush walks or boat safaris. Selous even boasts a small leopard population, the rarest cat you’ll find in Africa. Tanzania also boasts a great coastline and fantastic scuba diving sites around Mafia island including a chance to swim with whale sharks.
