The southern part of Tanzania is probably one of the best safari gems in Africa. Not marketed in the same way as the famous north, it experiences less tourists which will give you a more authentic and non-touristy safari. The different parks in the southern areas are extremely varied which is optimal for a diverse roundtrip with new and different experiences each day.

Special features /experiences
Rufiji River in Selous Game Reserve, is an ideal location for boat safari. (In 2019 Selous Game Reserve was split in two, creating a new national park with the name Nyerere National Park). The sunsets over the Mkata Plains and savannahs of Mikumi are stunning, and the tropical rainforest of Udzungwa Mountains off ers a spectacular hike to the tallest freestanding waterfall in Tanzania, Sanje Falls. The true hidden safari gem is Ruaha National Park, particularly if you want to see predators. Close to 10 % of all lions in Africa can be found here, and here is your best shot to see the very shy leopard.

Suitable for
This area suits everyone and is probably the best option for family and generation trips with small/ younger children. For those who only have a few days available for safari or want a true African safari road trip without sharing the nature with thousands of other tourists -we always recommend the south!

When to go
June-October is great for game watching, but November-February can also be very nice, especially if you like the green scenery. In late March to May, Mikumi National Park is the
most accessible park in the south, due to heavy rains.

The northern parts of Tanzania is where the whole safari industry kick-started, and this is still the most famous safari area in the world. It is not without reason Arusha, the starting point for safaris in this area, is called the “The Safari Capital of the World”. If you have a safari bucket list, we bet this area is on it with all its fame. The north will definitively not let you down!

Special features /experiences
The legendary Serengeti National Park with endless savannahs, the famous wildebeest migration and the mystical Ngorongoro Crater are must-sees when you are here. There are also less famous safari destinations in this area like Tarangire that inhabits large concentrations of elephants and Lake Manyara with a chance to see treeclimbing lions. And of course, the tallest freestanding mountain in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro and its 5895 masl is a hike on many people’s wish-list.

Suitable for
Those who want to visit the most famous safari destinations and the wildebeest migration, and don´t mind sharing it with a lot of tourists. Also for those who like the physical challenge of Mt. Meru and Mt. Kilimanjaro.

When to go
The north is good all year around. However, if you do want to avoid the tourist hordes, you should stay away from the peak seasons (July & December). The north is the area least exposed to the heavy rain season, so late May and early June can be amazing with fewer tourists and great deals!

Hands down, the most secluded and wild safari destinations in Tanzania and probably all of Africa. Few travel here and since many things have not changed for centuries out in the bush,
coming here can feel like time traveling. The west offers a unique combination of true wilderness and chimpanzee trekking.
Some of the new national parks in this region, like Ibanda-Kyerwa, Romanyika-Karagwe, Kigosi and Ugalla River will need some year to blossom to be a full worthy destination to visit.

Special features /experiences
The remote Katavi National Park with enormous concentration of hippos, has the least number of visitors of any game-drive destination. Gombe Stream and especially Mahale National Park off er spectacular chimpanzee trekking, combined with beach-time and snorkeling in Lake Tanganyika. The lake is said to be the second oldest and second deepest in the world. Kigoma is the closest city, and the ancient village of Ujiji is where Stanley found “the lost” Dr. Livingstone.

Suitable for
True explorers who seek the most wild and remote experiences, and anyone who has ever dreamt of visiting our close cousins, the chimpanzees, in the wild. If you want to be alone with few or no other tourists around, this is where you come. Due to the remoteness of the destination, expect a higher cost for your adventures here.

When to go
Katavi can only be visited during the dry season from June to October. August - October being the best months. The same goes for Mahale National Park, since the chimpanzees are closer to Lake Tanganyika this time of year and easier to locate.
