Tips for Tanzania Safari Tours

If you’re in search a country that exemplifies the amazing icons of East Africa, it is Tanzania. The snowcapped heights of Kilimanjaro, the endless masses of animals across the open savannas, the beaches and waters of Zanzibar - unlike places such as Kenya, Uganda or Zambia, nowhere else do the gems of Africa lie so close together. To those seeking to survey the worlds of sights and experiences that have spread the renown of this continent around the globe, read on and learn: there is nothing like a Tanzania safari!

This country of just under one million square kilometers is home to a diverse range of tribal groups, and traditions remain strong. It has the largest indigenous population of any country is East Africa, yet with one third of this population living in its capital Dar es Salaam, the rest of the country is the most sparsely populated of the region. Full of conservation areas that teem with wildlife and traditional people, Tanzania continues to offer a generous window into nature and culture. Over one hundred languages are spoken by over 150 people groups in the country, the most of any country in Africa, and this rich diversity is mirrored by its abundant wildlife - lions, elephants and much more - dwelling in spectacular landscapes that live up to the reputations you’re read about.

Tanzania safari tours have incredible options, including the wildlife safari, the photo safari, the Kilimanjaro climb, and cultural interaction. We are proud to offer these options, each of them being customizable to suit your needs. In addition, options are available to explore the beaches of the Swahili Coast and Zanzibar, the “Spice Island”. Of course, many travelers opt to combine several of these into an even more enjoyable and educational experience! Blend in a variety of accomodation types (from a tented safari camp to a thoughtfully appointed lodge or hotels - all are available on more adventure-oriented or Tanzania safari luxury tours), and you have a recipe for the perfect trip.

The Tanzania safari landscape is divided into two regions along the Great Rift Valley: the Northern Circuit and the Southern Circuit. The Northern is the more commonly traveled, featuring both small (Arusha and Tarangire) and large (Ngorongoro and the famed Serengeti) conservation areas. These are the safari experiences the world raves about, and an international traveler’s dream that draws adventurers from every corner of the planet. The Great Migration of over two million wildebeest, zebra and gazelles across northern Tanzania and Southern Kenya is one of nature’s most powerful ongoing displays!

The Southern Circuit, on the other hand, includes Selous, Ruaha and other areas that make up some of the largest and oldest conserved areas in Africa! Diverse in their wildlife and excursion offerings, they also boast some of the densest elephant populations on the continent. Better quality roads, fewer crowds and vast tracts of land make this area’s activities, especially camping and walking safaris, distinct from the offerings of the north. Whether you’re in search of more adventurous or luxurious amenities, there are outstanding Tanzania safari tours for you on the Southern Circuit.

Whether on the Northern Circuit or the Southern, photographers everywhere dream of the chance to capture the Big Five (elephant, rhino, Cape buffalo, lion, and leopard) on film. Thankfully, these majestic creatures once sought more after by big game hunters are now gaining more protection by law, and Global Basecamps is thrilled to offer photo safaris as part of our assortment of Tanzania safari tours.

The highest peak in Africa Kilimanjaro requires no technical climbing and its glaciered Uhuru Peak (5,895m/19,341ft) is summited by dedicated novice climbers many times every year. With six routes up “Kili”, we have selected those offering the best chances for you to stand on “The Roof of Africa”, ticking a tremendous accomplishment off your bucket list!

Tanzania has over 120 ethnic groups within its boundaries, the greatest of any African country and the secondmost in the entire world! Three general categories can be used to describe the heritage of these diverse and beautiful people: hunter-gatherers, farmers and pastoralists. Examples of the most ancient traditions – that of the hunter-gatherers - live on in the Hadzabe and Datoga of the Lake Eyasi region. In contrast, the pastoralist Maasai (sometimes spelled “Masai”, of the northern plains areas) and farmer Chagga (of Kilimanjaro’s slopes) represent cultures more widespread among Tanzania’s traditional peoples, with livestock and crop cultivation being much more commonly practiced. All of the tribes named take part in the Tanzania safari travel industry, and we work with operators striving towards to best practices in cultural tourism.

While the inland areas of Tanzania offer the quintessential safari tours that Africa travel is known for, the magic doesn’t stop there: the coast has much to dream of as well! The Arab influence of the narrow strip of land extending from northern Kenya through Tanzania to Mozambique is sheer delight, from dress to music to food. From the sailing dhows, Taraab music and spice farms of Zanzibar, to the swaying palms and white sand beach outside Dar Es Salaam, the Swahili Coast is a perfect place to enjoy delicious seafood, learn about African seafaring culture, and find the the rest that will leave your mind and body feeling new and fresh.

Whether you’re planning an adventure of your own or with a loved one, with your family or another group of adventurers, reach out to the Tanzania Safari Travel Specialists at Global Basecamps to find the right safari Tanzania has to offer. As we know from years of Tanzania safari planning, there’s a lot to know about how to book domestic flights to the right airport, choose the right tour from all the safaris Tanzania has available, and set you up on the best game drive to see the animals your heart dreams of. There is no end to the variety and richness of experiences at hand in this most interesting of African countries, and we are here to tailor them on the terms that work best for you. We’ll provide all the support and advice needed for planning and booking, and soon you’ll be on the path of adventuring in wonderful Tanzania!
