Home to over 120 tribes, including the famous Maasai warriors, Tanzania is one of Africa’s most diverse and spectacular destinations offering world-class wildlife viewing, the continent’s highest mountain and the pure white sand beaches of the Spice Island .
Our Safari tours in Tanzania journey through lands that have felt the footsteps of great explorers like Livingstone, Stanley, Burton and Speke and which have also witnessed the birth of Mankind. Amid the stunning landscapes of the Great Rift Valley, you can search for wildlife in the National Parks of Lake Manyara and Tarangire as well as the famous plains of the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, home to the world’s largest intact caldera and one of the densest populations of wildlife found anywhere on earth. On the southern circuit you can explore the less-visited but equally stunning Ruaha National Park and the vast gamelands of the Selous Game Reserve, larger in area than Switzerland.
Tanzania also boasts the world’s highest free-standing mountain and we offer a choice of climbing routes on Mt. Kilimanjaro and a range of itineraries offering you the opportunity to combine your climb with a safari.
All our itineraries to Tanzania include, or give you the option to extend your tour, to the Spice Island of Zanzibar. Here you can explore old Stonetown with its white washed houses and labyrinth of narrow streets, take a tour of the island visiting the Sultan’s palace and spice plantations, and of course we spend plenty of time for relaxing on the island’s famous beaches or enjoying watersports including snorkelling and diving.
Personalise your holiday
Did you know that Explore also offer Tailor made holidays to Tanzania? If we don’t have the right dates or availability for you on one of our group tours or you would like to customise your itinerary, then our expert team can put together your ideal itinerary on the dates that suit you.
Some examples of ideas for your tailor made holiday to Tanzania include:
- Private safaris in the quieter and more remote National Parks of Katavi, Mahale & Gombe
- Taking the Lemosho route up Kilimanjaro – which has fewer trekkers and is a longer hike giving you more chance of success.
- Visiting the tropical island paradise of Mafia and staying in a luxurious lodge
- Swimming and snorkelling off the remote island of Pemba
