Add to this excellent road and air links to reach each location and other parts of Africa makes Tanzania a safari destination hard to beat!
Traditionally, Northern Tanzania was the country’s first safari area and without doubt the most famous as well. The Ngorongoro Crater the immense Serengeti plains the lakes of Manyara together with Tarangire and Arusha National Parks make up what we now know as the Northern Circuit.
A safari in the north usually involves flying into Kilimanjaro airport via Amsterdam Dubai or Nairobi. On arrival your private safari vehicle and guide will meet you. Depending upon number of days, time of year and budget, you would drive to several or all of the parks we have listed, and stay in a combination of tented camps, lodges and hotels along the way.
Camps in the remote areas of northernTanzania are usually accessed by fly-in trips utilising the many scheduled light aircraft flights that now fly these routes. Flying permits faster access and means you don’t have to endure the amazing road between Northern Serengeti and the crater!
The southern parks include: Selous Game Reserve, Ruaha, Saadani, Mikumi and Udzungwa National Parks
The southern park have, spectacular scenery – some of the best Tanzania safari guides that really know their stuff. They are permanent members of staff at the various lodges and can guide you with grace, expertise and a lot of laughs as well.
The lodges in the south tend to be smaller more personal and often owner managed. They vary from the simple Out of Africa (long ago) tented camp to 5* lodges with picture windows and butler service.
Selous is perfect for a safari if you are on a limited budget and only have a few days it is only 45 minutes from Dar or Zanzibar.
The western parks include: Katavi, Mahale and Gombe National Parks. Western Tanzania is in a very different league to the north and south. Katavi on average receives 500 visitors per annum, compare this to 350 per day in the Serengeti.
Katavi is unspoiled and untamed. It is not unusual to see herds of buffalo in excess of 2,000. It is remote and ideal for those who prefer game viewing in peace and solitude. This undiscovered wilderness is awash with plains game and predators. A plethora of bird life can be found in Katavi and it is we believe one of the best parks you can now visit in Tanzania.
Mahale has a striking lakeside setting with the best possible chance of wild chimpanzee viewing.
Katavi Mahale and Gombe are a long way from Dar es Salaam or Arusha there are now flights at least three times a week. Special charters can also be arranged. The distance does make access to these parks a costly exercise, however we believe you will be rewarded.
