Tanzania has a lot to offer. For example, 3 of the 7 African wonders can be found in Tanzania. These are Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater, both natural wonders where world famous nature films have been filmed. In addition, the highest free-standing mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro with its wonderful ice tops, is also located in Tanzania. Below you can read everything you need to know before booking a Tanzania safari.
You can book a Tanzania safari all year round. The best travel time ultimately depends on your personal interests. If seeing the great migration is the main purpose of your visit, you will need to plan your trip carefully. June to September is the best time to see the migration in the Serengeti. However, you will need to stay in different parts of the park at different stages of the migration. This all depends on the rain, so it's not always the most reliable.
If you want to get away from the crowds, it's best to book your accommodation in the Serengeti. The wettest months are March and April. Whether your booked safari can continue during this period is uncertain, that's why its important to check with a local Tanzanian safaria agency, so they can offer you the best conditions to come. From Tanzania you can also easily book a trip to Madagascar and enjoy even more of the impressive African flora and fauna.
Tanzania is the ultimate safari destination, offering both quality and quantity. The wildlife is fantastic and there is a great choice of places to visit and things to do. In fact, it would be difficult to experience all the highlights in three Tanzania holidays, let alone one.
There are three different safari circuits: the most popular circuit in the north includes famous sites such as the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater; the lesser-known circuit to the south focuses on Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park; and the lesser-known circuit to the west includes Katavi National Park and the chimpanzee sanctuaries on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. Avid mountaineers may be surprised to learn that it is Africa's highest peak located in Tanzania. Mount Kilimanjaro is located between Kenya and Tanzania, but is climbed from the Tanzanian side.
