The Great Migration, Mount Kilimanjaro, Big Five Safaris and Paradise Beaches

A luxury Tanzania safari holiday is like no other. Witness the Great Migration across the Serengeti, conquer Mount Kilimanjaro, descend into the Ngorongoro Crater, watch hippos float in Lake Manyara, tick off Africa's Big Five, then head out to the coast or tropical islands to relax on idyllic beaches.

Tanzania Safaris

There are a plethora of incredible national parks and game reserves to choose from in Tanzania, offering a mix of wildlife-watching experiences.

The iconic Serengeti National Park is home to the "Greatest Show on Earth," the Great Migration. Watch herds of wildebeest, zebra and more as they embark on their annual cycle of Tanzania and Kenya's Masai Mara.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site and natural phenomenon of the Ngorongoro Crater is a remarkable microcosmic ecosystem for wildlife and the local Maasai community. This is the perfect spot for a Big Five safari (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino), as the crater is home to a 30-strong population of endangered black rhino.

Located in the north of Tanzania, easily combined with the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, underrated Tarangire National Park provides walking safaris, night safaris and fly camping trips, whilst nearby Lake Manyara is home to pink flamingos, pods of hippos and primate species.

Getting off the beaten path, a southern Tanzania safari holiday will see you explore the Selous Game Reserve, the country's largest and least visited. Enjoy off-road game drives, boating safaris and fishing in addition to game viewing.

Another lesser-known Tanzania safari destination is Ruaha National Park, which rivals the Serengeti in terms of wildlife diversity and density. Authentic safari adventures and a high concentration of predators, including huge prides of lion and the endangered African wild dog, sets this national park apart.

Tanzania Holidays

Although the famous Tanzania safari experience is what brings most visitors to this East African destination, Tanzania holidays have plenty more to offer travellers looking for an East African adventure.

Take on Africa's highest peak with an epic Kilimanjaro trekking expedition. Hike through rainforest, across glaciers and over ancient lava craters (we recommend the scenic Lemosho and Machame routes) to reach snow-capped Uhuru Peak for sunrise, far above the clouds.

After the thrill of a Tanzania safari or Kilimanjaro trek, relax on Tanzania's coast at Dar es Salaam, or hop over to Zanzibar and its surrounding islets to relax on pristine white sand beaches and swim in turquoise waters. Time your visit right and you can even swim with migrating whale sharks.

A country in epic proportions, your luxury Tanzania holiday offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences, from dawn break on the horizon from the "Roof of Africa," to the thundering stampede of migrating wildebeest, to vivid corals and diverse marine life in the waves of the Indian Ocean.

Your journey starts here.

Example Tanzania Safaris

Climb Kilimanjaro, enjoy safari activities in Tanzania's amazing national parks and recline on gorgeous beaches with the waves lapping at your toes. Every detail of your luxury Tanzania safari holiday is personalised to you and here are a few itinerary suggestions to give you some ideas.

Best times to visit Tanzania

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is best between December and March or July, August and September, when conditions are drier. Tanzania's safari destinations are also best visited in the drier seasons, as wildlife is easier to spot when most of the vegetation dies off and animals congregate around the remaining watering holes. June and July are the best months to visit if you'd like to see the Great Migration in the Serengeti.
