Game drive through the zebra herds of the great migration on safari in the Serengeti, 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.
Choose between a northern or southern circuit safari – based on your personal preferences
Extend your safari adventure with an idyllic beach stay along the coast, or on the islands of Zanzibar, Pemba or Mafia

Holiday to Kenya & Tanzania
It is impossible to find any criticism regarding the organisation of the trip. In 4 days in Kenya I saw things which were very unusual and very rare.
Family Holiday to Tanzania
Overall, we had a wonderful time. Even though we had a hick-up with our flights, which were NOT planned by Mahlatini, Claire Picknell, our Mahlatini planner was very helpful in alerting the relevant contacts of our arrival time change.The Plantation Lodge was outstanding. In many ways, the trip exceeded our expectations. Thank you Claire Picknell.
