The natural splendor of Cape Town extends
Tanzania safaris is an open invitation for the curious traveller as its untamed landscapes holds a biodiversity like nowhere else. With nearly 40 per cent of the country’s land area set aside for the protection of wildlife, it is no wonder that a wildlife safari to Tanzania is regarded as the ultimate experience. Discover the best of Tanzania with a whole host of star attractions scattered throughout the country.
Your holiday to Tanzania would not be complete without visiting the renowned Serengeti National Park, the stage for the Great Migration. Driven and dictated by the rain, the Great Migration is regarded as the biggest overland event of its kind anywhere in the world with more than a million wildebeest and thousands of zebra and Thomson’s gazelles tempting fate in search of greener pastures. Following close behind are predators like lions, hyenas, and crocodiles, eager to stake their claim in this journey of life and death.
The best of Tanzania is evident in the variety of geographical extremes, characterised by the features of the Great Rift Valley. Tanzania houses the highest peak in Mount Kilimanjaro, the lowest point in the lake bed of Lake Tanganyika and a portion of the largest lake in Lake Victoria on the African continent. You’ll also find the highest density of big game anywhere in Africa in the Ngorongoro Crater. Complete the safari of a lifetime to Tanzania by relaxing on the pristine beaches of Zanzibar. Also known as the Spice Island, the diverse marine life of this piece of heaven is best explored by dipping below the surface.

Best Time to Travel to Tanzania
The best time to Travel to Tanzania is during the dry season, from late June to October. The huge herds of animals of the Great Wildebeest Migration reach the northern Serengeti during the month of July and then make their way over the Grumeti River towards Kenya and the plains of the Masai Mara. There are no distinct seasons, such as winter and summer, in Tanzania, only the dry and wet seasons.
Stone Town, Zanzibar
Zanzibar is still the best-kept secret in the Indian Ocean, with fascinating history and magnificent beaches. An archipelago made up of Unguja and Pemba Islands and several islets, Zanzibar is located some 40 kilometers from the Tanzanian coast. The archipelago is characterized by beautiful, sandy beaches with fringing coral reefs, and the magical Stone Town – said to be the only functioning ancient town in East Africa.
