Tanzania Safari Parks and Wildlife
The status of Tanzania safari parks as a primary destination for wildlife explorers has been reflected in the expeditions of The National Geographic, The Discovery and The Animal Planet. Indeed, Northern Tanzanian parks are fantastic - Serengeti offers unique lion safaris and The Great Migration, Tarangire is famous for its fascinating elephant safaris, and Ngorongoro enjoys the reputation of a place with the highest density of wild animals. Lake Manyara with its flocks of pink flamingos and Mahali and Gombe parks with the largest population of chimpanzees are also must-have pieces to the collection of any avid traveller. Undoubtedly Tanzania is the best place for completing your full African wildlife safaris list.
Altezza Travel is always ready to turn your African dreams into reality. The fusion of technology and traditions of Tanzanian hospitality enables us to suit the fancies of everyone interested in Tanzania.
Best time for safari in Tanzania. Weather. Seasons
The best time for safaris in Tanzania depends on what your travel preferences are.
The period from June to October (also known as the “dry” season) is perfect for watching the Great Migration. Furthermore, this season is also excellent for safaris since the density of animals is the highest near the rivers and other sources of water. The number of mosquitoes is much lower than the usual one, and the weather is mostly sunny. The number of tourist vehicles in the parks is reasonable, though Ngorongoro and Seronera plains in Serengeti are usually the hotspots. Make sure to take warm clothes for the early mornings in June-August, when the temperatures may be low.
The “wet” season (or the “rainy” season) from November to May is ideal for those, who are eager to watch hunting scenes. Calves are born from January to February, and the predators are notably active during this time. The migration of birds is also at its peak at this time of the year, turning the National Parks into a paradise for ornithologists.
Furthermore, the vegetation is booming during the rainy season, and the Parks are amazingly green. Many award-winning photos of the Tanzanian wildlife have shot during May-November. This time is ideal for nature photographers.
A remarkable feature of the wet season is that the number of visitors to the Parks is notably lower than during the dry one. Coupled with the fact that rains are often (though not always, especially from March to May) short dribbles in the second half of a day, the advantages of rainy season should be surely taken into consideration in planning a trip to Tanzania.
Visa. Transfer. Accommodation
For nationals of the majority of countries, 90-day single-entry tourist visa to Tanzania is issued upon entry to Tanzania at the airport for USD 50. Citizens of the USA, however, are given multi-entry visas for USD 100. Nationals of the following countries need to get a referred tourism visa in the nearest embassy of Tanzania ( you could find the list of such countries here). If you need a referred visa, make sure to apply to the Embassy in at least 45 days before your visit.
Once you finish the border formalities, you will find our transfer driver waiting for you in the “arrivals” zone of the airport with a signboard with your name, who will take you to one of the best hotels in Arusha or Kilimanjaro. Altezza Travel entrusts your accommodation to the proven hospitality providers only.
Our Safari Prices
One of the tenets of our philosophy is to make Tanzanian adventures available and affordable for everyone. However, we firmly believe that Tanzanian hospitality is an essential part of the trip, as well as that comfort, is vital to maximize your wildlife experiences.

However, our tours feature luxury and premium lodges at reasonable prices. Our company has exclusive agreements with many award-winning hotels & lodges in the National parks, allowing us to offer the most attractive prices.

Contrary to the popular misconception Tanzania is one of the safest country in Africa. Listed among the safest countries on the continent, Tanzania has always been a hotspot for the nature enthusiasts. This country is one of the few in Africa, whose people have never seen a civil war or other large-scale unrest. The strongest government in the East African region prioritize the development of tourism, and many measures are in force to make sure that the tourists are safeguarded from all risks and hazards.
At the same time reasonable measures of protection are advisable - do not leave your personal belongings unattended, as well as do not demonstrate unnecessarily your wealth to the locals to avoid provocations.
Unless you are entering Tanzania from the epidemiologically dangerous regions, no vaccinations are necessary, though some are advisable. Read our article to know more about that.
Etiquette and Tips in Tanzania
Though Tanzania is a melting pot of Bantu, European, Arabic, Indian and other cultures, the daily etiquette of the country is quite simple - the Tanzanians have taken the best and the simplest.
Greetings are important in Tanzania. They usually take longer, because the rhythm of life in this tropical country is slower than in the developed countries. So do not be surprised if a Tanzanian is shaking your hand a bit longer than you expected.
Make sure asking permission when you want to take a picture of a local. Respect the elders, be polite and you will never have any cultural problem in Tanzania. Remember that Zanzibar the Muslim population of Zanzibar is very significant. The people there frown upon open clothes, so our guests are advised not to take
Tanzanians are amiable people, for whom hospitality is not an empty word. The locals are very proud of their country and always do their best to make sure that the tourists leave the country with pleasant impressions only.
We've come up with some tips to avoid embarrassing situations in Tanzania.
Tanzania safari reviews
Climbing and SafariMy trip to Tanzania was a memorable one. I think that everyone needs to see the African wildlife through your own eyes, is unlike anything else. Everything is special here: great reserves with unusual trees and unique animals, mode of life of Tanzanians and snowbound peak of Kilimanjaro. So interesting to watch the animals in their natural habitat. They do not pay attention to observers and doing their own things: eat, sleep, hunt, mate and breed – I was able to see all of it and took pictures of the camera :) Honestly, there are a lot of different type of exotic animals.

I think that everyone needs to see the African wildlife through your own eyes, is unlike anything else. Everything is special here: great reserves with unusual trees and unique animals, mode of life of Tanzanians and snowbound peak of Kilimanjaro. So interesting to watch the animals in their natural habitat. They do not pay attention to observers and doing their own things: eat, sleep, hunt, mate and breed – I was able to see all of it and took pictures of the camera :) Honestly, there are a lot of different type of exotic animals. They are different, some species coexist together. Guides were talking with each other and pass the information where some of them noticed an interesting animal, so we were able to see all the animals that have been at this point in the park. My hotel was almost in the city center, which gave me a chance to walk along the streets and look at the lives of Tanzanians. In spite of my poor English I managed to talk with some locals, although they all wanted to sale useless stuff to me. :) However, they gave up after one or two refusals and then just agreed to chat with me. Of course the impression would be incomplete without climbing. Going uphill for 5 days was not only a good challenge, but also a fascinating journey through an unusual area with unique flora and fauna. On the day of the summit we had a trek for about 4-5 hours to the summit camp, then rest, and at night climb about 6-7 hours. It was not easy, but not too hard. The feeling that you are with every meter closer to the highest point of Africa, gave strength. When I saw in the distance a cherished plate, broke into a smile and tiredness disappeared. At the approach I took the camera out and filmed the moment of summiting the peak. I remember that I cried as if conquered Everest :)">
SafariA couple of days ago I returned from my 5-day Tanzania safari tour. I’ve visited Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti. I cann ’t believe that all this has happened! I have seen so many picturesque places, so many wild animals! My driver guide Denis Frank Mauki helped me to explore the remotest places in the National Parks. We have met the Big Five Game (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and cheetah), we visited one of the authentic Maasai village. The face-to-face meeting with the Wilderness energized us.
