From the slopes of Kilimanjaro and wildlife rich Tarangire National Park; with spectacular landscapes over the Serengeti plains and pristine sandy beaches of Zanzibar; to little-visited southern Ruaha and Selous National Parks to the traditional Masai tribes - a tailor-made holiday to Tanzania offers a wealth of experiences to satisfy the interests of every traveller.
Northern Tanzania is where some of the country's most popular national parks can be found. A holiday of the northern circuit includes the Ngorongoro Crater, home to some 30000 animals, including buffalo, elephant, hyena, ostrich and black rhino. Lake Manyara is famous for its tree climbing lions, as well as huge flocks of flamingo, pelican and storks, who migrate here during the wet season.
Tarangire National Park sees huge numbers of elephant, giraffe, eland, hartebeest and kudu migrate from Kenya's Masai Mara to the Tarangire River in search of a water source. These herds then migrate further to the Serengeti National Park. To see the Great Migration travel between June and August as they cross the Grumeti River in the western corridor, or August to October for the Mara River crossing, where predators such as crocodile, lion, leopard, hyena, cheetah and vultures lie in wait.
Southern and western Tanzania have some wonderful parks, little-visited in comparison to their northern counterparts. Katavi National Park is so remote it is unlikely you'll see any other humans among the hippo, crocodile, buffalo, elephant and 400 species of bird that can be found here. Mahale Mountains National Park is one of the best places in Africa to see chimpanzees in the wild, the park is also home to bushbabies, porcupine, hyrax and mongoose. Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park are more accessible than the western parks, but little-visited, so you still get an authentic safari experience. Combine a holiday to the southern parks with Ras Kutani, just south of Dar es Salaam on the Indian Ocean coast, the perfect place to unwind after a safari holiday.
