Tailormade Tanzania

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.

Country Information

The Ngorongoro Conservancy Area

The vast, cracked volcanic caldera of the Ngorongoro Crater has one of the world’s greatest concentrations of wildlife, including the Big Five - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. The views from the crater rim are simply breathtaking.

The remote south

Southern Tanzania has some wonderful, pristine and little-visited parks - Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park are renowned for their large herds of elephant as well as lion, leopard and African dog. Enjoy a walking safari in Selous or a boat trip on the Rufiji River to see pods of hippo and crocodiles on the river banks.

Lake Manyara National Park

The park itself is famous for its tree climbing lions who spend their days in acacia trees, legs and tails dangling down. Elsewhere in Lake Manyara National Park, the huge lake is a sanctuary to flocks of flamingo, pelican, stork and ibis.

The wild west

Tanzania’s western parks are so remote it is likely you may not see any other visitors. Combine a holiday to Katavi and Mahale Mountains National Park to see lions, leopards, great pods of hippo and track chimpanzees, baboons, monkeys and bushbabies. Because of the remoteness of western Tanzania, getting here can be an adventure, but well-worth the effort.

And relax, it’s beach time
With turquoise waters and pure white sand, Zanzibar, Lazy Lagoon and Ras Kutani are the perfect places to wind down after a safari holiday or Kilimanjaro trek.

Meet Sarah Phelps, Regional Specialist for Tanzania:

"I was travelling between the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti in the month of February and suddenly found myself in the midst of the wildebeest migration. What an amazing sight, certainly something I will never forget. When in the Ngorongoro Crater, a stalking ground of over 25,000 wild animals including black rhinoceros and the densest known population of lions. Here I watched a pride stalking a small herd of antelope, hunting in a group being much more successful than hunting alone. Lake Manyara is famed for its tree climbing lions and incredible variety of birdlife. I loved watching the hundreds of pink flamingos on the lake, as well as many other migratory birds."

Book a holiday to Tanzania early to guarantee availability in the Serengeti National Park’s western corridor, one of the best places to see the wildlife migration. It is here that thousands of wildebeest, Thomson gazelle and zebra make the perilous journey across the Grumeti River, teeming with crocodiles. Predators, such as leopards, lions and hyenas take this opportunity to gorge themselves, while vultures circle overhead to finish off any leftover carrion.
