Tanzania is a well established safari destination and delivers great wildlife watching holidays for families, with experienced guides and family orientated lodges. It’s also on the coast, so a safari holiday can be coupled with a relaxing stay by the sea to enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches.
Tanzania’s best game viewing is probably in two of the most famous game reserves in Africa: the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.
On the grasslands of the Serengeti you can spot the Big Five along with cheetahs, African wild dogs, lovebirds and vultures. You can also witness the incredible annual wildebeest migration here.
The Ngorongoro Crater is known as ‘Africa’s Eden’ and offers amazing wildlife viewing with over 90 lions along with leopards, rhinos and a lake at the centre that’s inhabited by hundreds of flamingos.
On the idyllic island of Zanzibar you can visit historic Stone Town and smell the scent of spices that still lingers in the air at the harbour front. Zanzibar also has some excellent beaches and plenty of sunshine where the family can enjoy a well earned rest.
Tanzania is one of the most celebrated African safari destinations and it well deserves its reputation for offering excellent wildlife viewing at legendary locations, coupled with the history and stunning beaches of Zanzibar. This is a destination that offers something to keep the whole family entertained.
