Tanzania Safaris - What to Expect on Your Tanzania Safari

A Tanzania safari is an exciting trip into the wilds of Africa. It provides a good chance to observe wild animals up close, including elephants, lions, cheetahs, wild goats, etc. But a Tanzania safari is also a great opportunity to get out in the open and observe the beautiful landscape, landscapes, waterfalls, etc. This is one of the reasons that Tanzania is one of the most popular touristic destinations in Africa.

The best time for Safaris in Africa really depends upon your interests, as well as the prevailing weather conditions. However, most tours of Tanzania end in the northern circuit, especially between May and July. In this region, the equator crosses the Tanzania boarder. Tanzania safaris in this region are mostly long drives in the great outdoors, so visitors must be prepared for the open road and the occasional desertion of car transport. The best time to visit the northern circuit is from early May to mid August, or from October to March, inclusive of any annual festivities.

In the southern Tanzania region, the summer is a more popular time for a safari; however, if you wish to experience the wildlife in the Ngorongoro Crater region, which remains remote and is not reached by automobile until late in May, you can make your way there by embarking on a domestic Tanzania safari. One of the most popular game viewing locations in Tanzania is Selous, on the Indian Ocean coast, not far from Zanzibar. Selous has a number of game reserves as well as sand dunes and palm trees, among other attractions. Some safaris to Zanzibar include a flight to Ngorongoro Crater, where you can view some of the most stunning black sand beaches in the world.

Tanzania Safari in the eastern part of Tanzania usually last months. Tanzania safaris in Kenya include visits to Masai Mara National Reserve, the largest grassland reserve in Africa. This region also offers several game reserves, including Masai Mara, Maasai Mara, Swauha, Turkana and other parks and game reserves in Northern Tanzania. Tanzania safaris in Southern Tanzania often include visits to Serengeti National Park and Zanzibar's Palm Coast. Serengeti is renowned for wildebeests and other big animals.

Tanzania safaris in Northern Tanzania will take visitors to Northern Serengeti National Park. This park has tent camps and other accommodation options, with a number of hotels and resorts. Visitors have the option of visiting villages in the North and South of Serengeti; however, the most popular destinations in Serengeti are still at the southernmost tip of the country - Maasai Mara and Kilimanjaro. The migration from the Serengeti across Northern Tanzania will be the biggest in the continent and can last up to two weeks.

Tanzania safaris in Southern Tanzania will include visits to several volcanoes in the southern part of Tanzania - Mount Kilimanjaro, Longara and Victoria Falls are among the most popular. Some of these volcanoes are still inhabited and offer a sense of what life was like millions of years ago, before man came on the scene. The last Ice Age contributed to the appearance of Longara, the second largest volcano in Southern Tanzania. Victoria Falls, on the banks of the river Karonga, is also a well-known attraction in Southern Tanzania and an important stop on any Tanzania safari.
