Tanzania Bush and Beach

Marvel at the incredible diversity of Tanzania on this safari which combines Tanzania’s world-renowned northern reserves with the exotic island of Zanzibar, which lies off the country’s tropical east coast. Glimpse the country’s highest peak – Mount Kilimanjaro, explore the world’s largest unbroken caldera and see the wildlife of the celebrated Serengeti, before relaxing on a perfect white sand beach outside of fascinating Stone Town.

Tanzania lends itself to tailor made safaris, and we can design an itinerary to suit your requirements using road and/or air transfers and your choice of lodges, camps or full service camping. Tours can depart with a minimum of 2 guests any day of the week.

This sample itinerary can easily be amended to suit your interests. The cost of your safari will depend on the number of nights and the standard of accommodation used. Our tailor-made safaris are based on exclusive use of a vehicle, so are also ideal for private family safaris and small group travel.

Tanzania Overview

What is the best thing to do in Tanzania?
A wildlife safaris is an absolute must as Tanzania is one of Africa’s great wildlife destinations. Witnessing tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra in the Serengeti is an unquestionable highlight, whilst the Ngorongoro Crater is one of the natural wonders of the world. A trek to the top of Africa’s highest peak – Mount Kilimanjaro – is a bucket-list experience for any adventure enthusiast.

What is the climate like in Tanzania?
Much of the Serengeti is over 5,000ft so temperatures vary between 22°- 29°C. It is generally sunny and windy, with rain falling between November and May as isolated showers. The low-lying Rift Valley is much hotter (30°-35°C), while the coast is hot and humid. The Ngorongoro Highlands can be cool to cold at night.

How do I get to Tanzania?
There are only two European airlines – KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Turkish Airlines – that fly directly into the country. Otherwise, flying via the Kenyan capital of Nairobi (where far more major airlines fly to including British Airways and Air France) is another option. From here travellers can then fly to numerous airports in Tanzania.

For travellers coming from the United States at least one stop is required. The easiest airlines for connections are either with KLM or Qatar Airways via Doha. From Doha there are also direct flights to Kilimanjaro International Airport.

What can I combine Tanzania with?
Tanzania is often combined with other countries including neighbouring Kenya or either Uganda or Rwanda for a trek to see the gorillas. A few days on the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar is a very popular way to end a Tanzanian safari.
