Tanzania safari

Why visit Tanzania?

Think 'safari' and you will inevitably conjure up 'Out of Africa' images of boundless plains, balloon safaris and huge herds of game animals. Tanzania is a classic safari destination and home to some of Africa’s best known parks, including the famous Serengeti, and Africa’s largest game reserve – the Selous.

Tanzania also lies claim to Africa's highest mountain in Kilimanjaro; boasts the iconic Ngorongoro Crater and the must-see spectacle of the Wildebeest Great Migration. For big cat lovers, it attracts the highest concentration of predators in Africa. For an ‘off the beaten track’ experience, Tanzania offers many other scenically-diverse national reserves and specialist experiences from photographic safaris to mobile camping.

Combine your safari adventure with a tropical island stay in Zanzibar, just off the Tanzania coast, for the ideal mix of adventure and relaxation.

Can I bring my family to Tanzania?

There are many child-friendly camps, hotels and lodges with children’s programmes across Tanzania. Learning about the local culture through interacting with the Maasai people can be as thrilling and memorable for your family as the animal encounters. We’ve extensive experience in planning family safari holidays and will design your trip around the age of your children and your specific priorities.

The wildebeest migration

The Great Migration is one of the world’s most awe-inspiring spectacles - over 2 million wildebeest, gazelles and zebra travel through the ecosystems of the Serengeti in Tanzania and the Masai Mara in Kenya in search of green pasture. One of Africa’s bucket-list experiences, our experts will ensure you capture this natural phenomenon at its best.

Seeking a specialist experience?

How about chimpanzees in Mahale Mountains National Park, a mobile camping safari, a photographic safari or diving with whale sharks off Mafia Island? We love designing exclusive experiences for clients. Share your wishlist and we look forward to making your dream trip a reality.

Amazing lodges, guides, safaris. Well-organized. Incredible sights. We felt so well taken care of. And it felt very safe for me and my family. The guides worked hard to make sure we saw as much as possible. This was a life-changing trip.

The trip was seamless and was the absolute best vacation of our lives, worth every penny. From arranging every transfer to and from the airport, to recommending the beautiful hotels we stayed in and being so easy to work with, it was such an incredible experience. When you are very busy planning your wedding, it is hard to find time to also plan your honeymoon, so thank you for all…
