We know Tanzania, better than most.
Whether you would like to safari in the Serengeti or seek respite on the coral sand beaches of Zanzibar, whether it is an adventure in the chimpanzee forests alongside Lake Tanganyika or climbing Kilimanjaro, we will shape your perfect Tanzania holiday.
We pride ourselves on our knowledge, and we keep it up to date. We generally advise people to consider safaris in either the North, West or the South of the country; you can combine the two, but this gets a lot more expensive.
Attracts travellers who want to tick the Big 5 off their list, heading to the famous and action-packed Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti. If you dream of seeing the Great Migration, you have to go north, to the Serengeti. The scenery in the Northern parks is magnificent, with some of the world’s best wildlife viewing opportunities - but it gets busy as a result.

Is quieter and gives little more luxury for your money. The Selous Game Reserve, Mikumi and Ruaha National Parks provide a wild and authentic safari landscape off the beaten tourist track. Logistically, a safari and beach combination couldn’t be easier from Southern Tanzania. Park rules in the South are less strict, which allows for fly-camping under the stars, boating and walking safaris. In season (July – October) the wildlife is also exceptional.

The Western Circuit embraces the parks along Lake Tanganyika, the western border of Tanzania with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The vast space in a remote natural location makes the circuit worth a visit. Gombe Stream National Park was made famous by Jane Goodall’s research on its chimpanzee population and subsequent habituation. Mahale Mountains National Park further south, on the shores of the gin-clear waters of Lake Tanganyika, is a more authentic chimpanzee experience and highly recommended. You'll have to go further to find the chimps but you'll get a better idea of how chimps are in the wild than by observing them at feeding pens. Katavi National Park is another 150km towards the south-east of Mahale and probably gets fewer than 500 tourists a year.
