Deservedly renown as the best country for a wildlife adventure, safari tours
in Tanzania are the best choices for an enthralling wildlife vacation in the
heart of Africa. Ranked #1 destination for a safari by the panel of renowned
experts, Tanzania mesmerizes with its pristine, ancient legacy of the
wildlife and bewitches with its awe-inspiring scenic views.
One of the few places on the planet with the natural world impervious to the
human civilization, everyone can become an explorer, embarking on an
immersive journey into the era of David Livingstone and Heinrich Barth. You
will see Wild Africa at its rawest and relive the experiences of the first
audacious pioneers of Tanzania.
The Number One Safari Destination in Africa
Whenever a safari adventure comes to your mind, Tanzania is the first
destination to consider. It received a landslide victory in a vote for the
best safari country in Africa. It is here, where the UNESCO World Heritage
Sites Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater are located. It is
exactly the place where the National Geographic, The Animal Planet and the
Discovery Channel shot their award-winning documentaries.
And finally, it is Tanzania, where the human civilization is still alien, and
the wilderness dominates. It is the real Lost World, which ignores history
and human impact. You will see the plains of Tanzania as witnessed by our
forefathers. Enjoy its power at its wildest.

Some of the most amazing wildlife spectacles, featured in our Tanzania safari
The Great Wildebeest Migration
The view of the biggest herd of the ungulates on the planet (more than a
million of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles) galloping in search of new
pasturelands is both mesmerizing and awe-inspiring. The unique wildlife
spectacle under the blue sky occurs when the herds deplete their habitual
The mightiest collective effort of the hoofed mammals on the planet is a
popular spot for the teams of the National Geographic and the Animal Planet
to capture this one-of-a-kind show directed by Nature. From a distant
observation point, you will see a pulsing and breathing vivid giant, moving
at high speed and raising clouds of dust.
Getting closer presents a multitude of impressive episodes of this saga - the
Migration attracts hundreds of feline predators (lions, leopards and
cheetahs), lurking around and looking for the weakest and the oldest.
Stirring scenes occur when the wildebeests, zebras and gazelles cross the
rivers - insidious, cold-blooded and watchful crocodiles are staging bloody
ambushes. Breathtaking hunting dramas are played out.
The Great Migration season in Northern Tanzania is from July till September.
The herds are crossing the main water artery of the National Parks, River
Mara, a hideout of the bloodthirsty crocodiles, in June.
The Plains of Serengeti
Endless savannahs of Serengeti National Park amaze with its beauty and
grandeur. Listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site, Serengeti is a must-visit
place in Tanzania. With the largest number of mammals species collection,
Serengeti unconditionally beats any other wildlife sanctuary of Africa. This
is the best place to see the Big Five, as well as it is where the Great
Migration starts and ends its annual odyssey. Majestic elephants, mighty
rhinos, towering giraffes slender leopards, kingly lions and funny warthogs
- this all about Serengeti. It is the vibes of Serengeti that inspired the
Disney studio to immortalize its beauty in the ‘King Lion’ cartoon’.
The first contact with Serengeti sends a deceptive message that you are in
the realm of tranquility and harmony. Going deeper in the park, you will
witness the bloody hunting games between the feline predators and the
herbivorous, where the cats are not always victorious - a powerful ‘circular
defense formation’ of buffaloes has left many lions hungry and badly
Due to painstaking conservation efforts of the Tanzanian government and
international activists, all types of human development activities in
Serengeti are strictly forbidden. You will see Serengeti at its rawest and
see the same scenic vistas, which inspired Hemingway to create his immortal
Oftentimes referred to as the ‘cradle of civilization’, another Tanzanian
UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ngorongoro Conservation Area offers unparalleled
encounters with the wildlife and cultural experiences.
The lost world inside the Crater
Ngorongoro Crater is the last memoir of the giant volcano, which eruption
formed a colossal caldera. The wild animals inside are virtually ‘locked’
inside, but not by the walls of the crater - contrary to a popular
misconception, the animals can freely walk inside and outside through many
loopholes. The site has exceptionally favorable conditions for mammals -
plenty of water and juicy grass are the reason why Ngorongoro Crater has an
unbelievably high density of herbivorous animals, which, in their turn,
attract the predators. Thousands of wild animals inhabit the crater, forging
the reputation of Ngorongoro as a mecca for wildlife adventurers.
The cradle of humanity
The world-famous archeological site Olduvai Gorge is the place where the
fossils of the first humans (homo habilis) to inhabit the planet have
discovered by the team outstanding British paleontologist Louis and Mary
The ongoing scientific research never stops there, and many treasures are
awaiting their explorers. However, in contrast to other excavation sites,
Ngorongoro is open to the general public. You may walk down the ravine and
stand at the same place, where the first hominids stood many years ago.
Informative and comprehensive lecture of the local guides will bring the new
insights about the onset of our civilization.
Tanzania is a famous destination both among the professional ornithologists
and amateur twitchers. With over a thousand of recorded bird species living
in the protected areas, Tanzania safari tours is a paradise for the
enthusiast - this is the best place to complete your list.
The birds here are everywhere - you may begin your expedition in the tropical
forests of Kilimanjaro, then move to the Northern Circuit National parks,
and nowhere your intimate contact with the feathered race will be the same.

Mighty Baobabs, Tree-Climbing Lions and other Surprises
Describing all wildlife attractions of Tanzania will produce a volume larger
than a complete edition of Encyclopedia Britannica in size and magnitude.
For example, Tarangire National Park shelters one of the largest herds of
elephants in the world. Roaming between the towering baobabs, the present
quite a fantastic view for the wildlife photographers.
Tanzania parks also feature one-of-a-kind encounters with the tree-climbing
lions - a unique sight nowhere else to be found.
Lake Manyara has been selected as a nesting point for one of the largest
colony of pink flamingos in the world. A mesmerizing view of thousands and
thousands of these airy birds leaves no one indifferent.
