Safari in Tanzania

Tanzania, the land of the great migration, Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar has some of Africa’s biggest wildlife parks and most dramatic scenery.

Tanzania features some of Africa’s best-known national parks and game reserves, including the legendary Serengeti, which millions of wildebeest cross every year as part of the great migration. Then there’s the ‘lost world’ of the Ngorongoro Crater, an extinct volcano which shelters endangered species.

To truly get away from it all, head to southern Tanzania. The vast wilderness areas of Ruaha and the Selous receive relatively few tourists, so they feel authentically wild and remote. If elephants are your thing, seeing them alongside the iconic baobab trees of Tarangire is an unforgettable experience.

While the Great Wildebeest Migration gets a lot of the attention, you might find that it’s better to visit Tanzania at off-peak times. You won’t see the huge herds, but the year-round game-viewing of resident wildlife is also excellent.

When To Go To Tanzania

Best time to visit Tanzania

While Tanzania can be enjoyed year-round the best time for wildlife viewing is during the Dry Season (June to October) where the famous wildebeest migration in the Serengeti takes place around June and July. For those that are interested in experiencing the calving season it is best to visit between late January to February. While the parks located in the northern circuit can be visited year-round, the southern and western circuits are best done in the Dry Season.
