Tanzania Safari

Wildlife Safari

Tanzania Safari Highlight

Tanzania, Africa’s safari gem, is a wildlife enthusiast’s paradise. Imagine exploring the majestic Ngorongoro Crater and the vast Serengeti National Park. The country is home to the legendary Big Five and countless other species. From graceful giraffes and playful hippos to stealthy caracals, African wild dogs, and a myriad of other lesser-known animals.

On a Tanzanian safari, you’re not just observing. You’re part of the scene. Animals roam freely, offering a genuine glimpse into their daily lives. As dusk falls, the adventure doesn’t end. You’ll relax in comfortable lodges, the unique sounds of the savannah as your lullaby. The country’s landscapes are as diverse as its wildlife, from the Serengeti’s dry plains to Ngorongoro’s lush forests. Every corner of Tanzania offers a different slice of nature, promising a rich and unforgettable wildlife journey.

About Safari Adventure

What happens on a Safari?

Imagine being in a car that has a pop-up roof that allows you to enjoy breathtaking 360-degree views of the surroundings. Animals frequently get in close enough for amazing photo ops.

You’ll check into a mobile tented camp or safari lodge as dusk draws near for meals and relaxation. The following day, your voyage resumes, allowing you to experience more of Tanzania’s natural treasures. Walt Disney’s “Lion King” was inspired by the stunning landscapes and abundant wildlife of the nation, which have also been featured on Hollywood screens in classics like “Hatari!”

However, a Tanzanian safari offers cultural exploration in addition to animal viewing. You can discover fascinating historical places like the Olduvai Gorge, known as the “Cradle of Mankind,” and visit Maasai settlements to learn about indigenous customs.

Take a walking safari over the savannah for a fresh viewpoint and up-close interactions with the natural world. Are you feeling even more daring? Fly high in a hot air balloon and take in the breathtaking scenery from above. For an enhanced safari experience, Travel Route Africa provides these and additional off-the-beaten-path opportunities.

well organised trip and affordable prices I loved my trip up Kilimanjaro withTravel Route. I was picked up at the airport by Emmanuel. The hotel I stayed at the day before the trek was nice and even had a pool which was good for relaxing before the climb. I went on the Machame route, which was great. It's beautiful and the climb was manageable. The guides were encouraging, helpful, cheerful and knowledgeable. The tents we stayed in on the climb were nice and we even had sleeping mats, which made for a comfortable sleep. The food on the climb was plentiful and better than I expected it to be. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend Travel Route to anyone thinking about about climbing Kilimanjaro.

FAQ's

Popular questions about Tanzania Safari

To really soak in Tanzania’s safari wonders like Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti, and Tarangire National Park, aim for a 5-7 day trip. This will give you enough time to explore the northern circuit and see the Big Five and other key animals. For those who can stay longer, there are incredible safari journeys lasting 20+ days! If you’re short on time, a quick safari covering Arusha and either Tarangire or Lake Manyara National Park can be done in 1-2 days. It’s a great snapshot of Tanzania’s wildlife. And, if you’re keen on the Serengeti but pressed for time, flying directly there is a good option.

Choosing the right time for a safari in Tanzania really depends on your preferences. The dry season, spanning June to October and January to March, are ideal for wildlife spotting as animals gather around water sources. You’ll enjoy sunny days, but expect crowds, especially during the Great Migration and the birthing seasons of zebras and wildebeests. On the other hand, the rainy season, in April-May and November-December, offers a lush landscape with fewer visitors and potential discounts at lodges. Transition periods like late March, early June, late October, and November are perfect for a more peaceful experience, balancing good weather with fewer tourists.

The Great Wildebeest Migration is a mesmerizing natural spectacle for wildlife lovers, featuring over a million animals traversing the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem. Starting with calving in the southern Serengeti, near the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, they wind through the Serengeti towards Kenya’s Masai Mara, returning by year’s end. One of the most dramatic parts of this migration is the Mara River crossing. Here, the migration herds face the challenging currents and hungry predators lurking in the waters. Watching thousands of these animals navigate the Mara river is a highlight for many travelers.

The Great Wildebeest Migration in the Serengeti offers year-round drama, peaking with the wildebeest calving season in February-March and dramatic river crossing in May-August, before moving to Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve from August to October.

Kilimanjaro International Airport is the gateway to northern Tanzania national parks like Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, and is close to Mount Kilimanjaro. For the southern parks, Dar Es Salaam International Airport is the go-to entry point.

For a safari, choose shirts and pants in neutral colors like khaki or gray to blend in and hide dust. Avoid white, blue, and camouflage clothing. Blue attracts tsetse flies and camouflage is restricted for civilians. Dresses are great for lodges but pants are practical for drives. Remember sun protection: a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. For footwear, sandals are fine for lodges, but closed shoes are better for drives. Pack a warm jacket for chilly mornings and evenings, especially in high-altitude areas.

Two countries in East Africa provide remarkable safari experiences: Kenya & Tanzania. However, Tanzania frequently stands out. Many prefer it for its less crowded parks and abundant wildlife, which includes unique animal sightings. The extended Great Migration period in the Serengeti National Park is also a major attraction. Additionally, the country offers the opportunity to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain.

Leaving the car on a Tanzania safari is allowed in designated areas only. Leaving a car right in the middle of the national park isn’t allowed because of safety considerations.

Regular visitors are not permitted to operate drones in Tanzania’s national parks. However, special permissions can be obtained for filming projects. This process typically takes 3-4 months and incurs additional costs. Bringing a drone into Tanzania without the necessary permissions risks confiscation by customs officials upon arrival.

Wi-Fi is available in our safari vehicles. However, please note that in the more remote areas of national parks, coverage might be limited. You can also expect Wi-Fi in hotels and lodges across Tanzania. The connection in those locations can sometimes be intermittent too.
