Budget Tanzania Safaris

A Tanzania safari is booked all year round, but the optimum time to go on a safari varies according to your personal interests. When visiting the wildebeests migration, which is arguably the most beautiful of all the wildlife encounters in Africa, you'll need to plan your Travel in Tanzania around this time of year. June to September is a good time to see the northern migration through the Serengeti region of Tanzania, but you'll need to remain in other areas of the safari park at various stages of this journey. The southern Tanzania safaris, by contrast, are better paced and planned for a particular time of year - October to March. That's when the rains of northern Tanzania stop, and the southern savanna begins to come into focus.

There are many places in Tanzania where you can choose to base yourself and begin your Safaris In Tanzania experience. A typical safari starts with a hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro, which is a well-known landmark in Tanzania and considered the starting point of any safari. From there you can travel through the Ngorongoro Crater and finally turn around and head back to the town of Tanzania from where you began your trip. There are many lodges in Tanzania that offer their guests the option of paying for a guided safari experience, or they may arrange one on their own.

Some lodges will offer their guests both, meaning that you can simply enjoy the natural beauty of the country's landscape whilst also resting upon the talismans of the gods of the local temples. Alternatively, some lodges are situated within the park itself, meaning that you can truly experience the majesty of Tanzania's unique wildlife and scenery. It is common for travellers to visit both parks; however, if you wish to have a completely different safari experience it is possible to simply visit Kilimanjaro and Serengeti National Park separately. This option allows you to immerse yourself in the local culture of both regions.

The Serengeti National Park houses some of the most magnificent scenery in Tanzania, and is ideal for those who like to spend their time out in the wilds. For example, it is possible to view the wildebeests as they prepare to move across the landscape in search of water and shade. Travellers can watch as these animals bond together, or walk amongst the wildebeests themselves. If you like your safaris to include the beautiful scenery of the country's mountains, the Selous and other such peaks are the perfect place for you to visit. In addition to the scenery, visitors are able to view the greenery of this area; whilst it is not unusual for wildlife to spot you.

For those of you who like to mix your safari with more contemporary activities such as shopping, it is possible to combine your Tanzania safari with a trip to the town of Dar es Salaam. This famous town is only 60 kilometres from the Serengeti due to the lack of acclamation to the nearby areas. However, with many shops, restaurants and hotels within the town, it is possible to spend your time here in relative luxury while still experiencing the charms of rural life. Tourists are commonly obliged to participate in a small number of private safaris, although accommodation is usually not difficult to find if you do not wish to join a tour group.

Before you plan your next African trip it is important to take the time to consider all of the options available to you. Tanzania safari costs are notoriously variable; due to the unpredictable weather across the region, the safari costs you expect to pay will almost certainly be a 'case of what you paid for'. Therefore, it is important to research all options thoroughly. The better you are prepared by familiarising yourself with all the different options, the more likely it is that you will make the right decisions about what suits your needs and budget.
