Things To Do And See On A Tanzania Safari

Northern Circuit

Arusha National Park

Mt. Meru, the fourth highest mountain in Africa, dominates this small, lush park. A three-night, four-day climb is both challenging and rewarding and requires no technical skills. Down lower, the park features a series of lakes and a wide variety of habitats. Mammal and bird life abound-look for species like the black and white Colobus monkey, cape buffalo, Hartlaub’s turaco, and greater and lesser flamingos.

Lake Manyara National Park

Another small gem, this park takes its name from its shallow, alkaline lake nestled at the foot of the Great Rift Valley wall. Jungle-like LMNP offers large concentrations of mammals, including elephants, hippos, baboons, giraffes, leopards and lions. Flamingos, pelicans and many other bird species abound. Try a canoeing trip for a unique view or mountain biking on the plains near the park.

Mt. Kilimanjaro

At 19,340 feet, Kili is the highest mountain in Africa. Those who climb Kili will explore lush forests, giant heath, alpine deserts reminiscent of the moon, and giant glaciers. Reaching the summit, Uhuru Peak, you’ll look down on the world and see why this is called the roof of Africa. Explore Kilimanjaro tours.

Mt. Meru

Though existing in the shadow of its big sister Kilimanjaro, Mt. Meru is a worthy challenge for hikers. This massive volcano towers 14,975 feet above Arusha, which lies at the foothills on its south side. See Kilimanjaro from the highest perch possible…perhaps there is no better vantage point to gaze at Africa’s tallest mountain.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The NCA is home to much more than people realize. The famous Ngorongoro Crater, nearly 100 square miles in diameter, is breathtaking both from above and below. Here, you’ll find lions, hyenas, jackals, elephants, buffalo, and eland, just to name a few. Importantly, this is probably the only place you’ll be able to see the rare black rhinoceros in Tanzania. Outside the crater, the NCA offers vast plains, cultural interactions with the Maasai, walking safaris and Olduvai Gorge.

Olduvai Gorge

Located between Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Park is Olduvai Gorge, the site of many famous discoveries into the origins of human kind. Luis and Mary Leakey spent much of their lifetimes digging here and made many finds including the fossilized bones of Australopithecus boisei. During the rains, great herds of wildebeest come to calve nearby.

Serengeti National Park

The flagship of the Tanzania National Parks system and famous throughout the world, this huge park offers vast vistas, beautiful hilly areas, grass, bush, woodland, and the famous Serengeti Plains. Millions of animals, including 1.5 million wildebeest, plus birds and reptiles…. this is the ultimate game viewing destination.

Tarangire National Park

This park and its namesake river provide a crucial lifeline for a variety of animals in the dry season. From June through October and other times of year, this park is alive with elephant, wildebeest, zebra, and buffalo trekking back and forth between the Tarangire River and their feeding grounds. Tarangire also is home to kudu, reedbuck and other less common antelope as well as their predators, along with hundreds of species of birds.

Southern Circuit

Gombe Stream National Park

Made famous by Jane Goodall, tiny Gombe Stream National Park is an excellent place to see wild chimpanzees. Little visited and even lesser developed, Gombe offers guided hikes through the park’s steep mountains in search of the chimp families made famous by Goodall. Here, you can also see Colobus monkeys, baboons and hundreds of species of cichlids in Lake Tanganyika.

Mahale Mountains National Park

Breathtaking, forested mountains meet the crystal clear waters of Lake Tanganyika in Mahale. Less famous but larger and even less visited than Gombe, Mahale is paradise for those interested in chimpanzees, forest hogs, birds and unspoiled beauty. Our partner company also offers chartered flights to nearby Katavi National Park.

Ruaha National Park

Ruaha is Tanzania’s second largest park. It provides visitors with a real bush experience as visitor numbers and accommodations are scarce. The Ruaha River attracts giant crocodiles and hippos, elephants, greater kudu as well as the lesser kudu, roan and sable antelope, and many other species. Ruaha is at its best from June to November when conditions are hot and dry.

Selous Game Reserve

At 22,000-square-miles, the Selous is the largest game reserve in Africa. Selous is home to vast numbers of animals and birds including tens of thousands of elephants plus African wild dogs, crocodiles, hippos, buffalo and antelope. Selous is a great place for river trips, walks and game drives.

The Coast

Zanzibar Island

With a history full of conquerors, slavers, and spice traders, Zanzibar is a place to get a taste of the exotic. Stone Town’s, narrow, winding streets and fabled doors and are sure to hold your interest. On a spice tour, you’ll see how cloves and other spices are grown. And, the island’s white-sand beaches and crystal-clear ocean provide the perfect opportunity to swim, scuba dive, snorkel and relax.

Pemba Island

Lesser known than it’s sister island, Pemba has the incredible beaches and water of Zanzibar without the development. Come here to relax, snorkel, dive and enjoy the unique local culture. Pemba is not for those looking for a high level of infrastructure, development or services.


One of the many coastal areas with beautiful water and beaches. A local’s favorite for relaxing in a relaxed atmosphere.
