Why You’ll Love a Tanzania Safari

Tanzania’s winning charm is its unparalleled culture. With such diversity stretching across the country, it is a one-stop hub for all things cultural and historical. The true charm of Tanzania lies in its local people, who have a beautifully preserved network of tribes across the country. Such richness in culture is always something people take away from their time here.
The balmy climate is also a winner among travellers, who come to unfurl on hot sands and revel in the year-round sun. Smooth shorelines, straw huts, and snorkelling opportunities are bound to be an attraction for those who look for luxury in their holidays.

It isn’t possible to speak of a Tanzania safari without thinking of the story-inspiring wildlife that make their homes in the wild. Many explorers are often drawn in by the promise of safari tours, which offer an unbeatable introduction to the country’s wonderfully varied animal kingdom

Where to Travel in Tanzania

Make your first stop the wilderness of Serengeti, where you can catch sight of wildebeest migration, or see the Big Five at Tarangire National Park when you make the most of Tanzania safari tours. A trip to Tanzania would not be complete without attempting to climb part (or all!) of Mount Kilimanjaro, which you can practice hiking for in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
The dazzling beaches of Zanzibar’s holiday paradise are often a popular port of call for people visiting Tanzania for the first time, where they can experience the epitome of a relaxing getaway. For a more opulent trip, you can always venture out to the serene shores of Pemba Island.

When to Visit Tanzania

Tanzania is lucky to boast a temperate climate throughout the year, although it is best not to travel during rainy season, which is during the months of April to May, and November to December. To enjoy the most sun, come at any time from June to October and January to March. At these peak times, you will catch the best weather for wildlife viewing, such as the famous Serengeti Migration.
It is important to note that visiting in shoulder season can be a better travel choice if you want to encounter smaller crowds, which takes up three key months: March, June and October.
When you are up in the mountains, and want the best conditions to climb in, you can make the most of two periods, which span between January to March, or July to October.

Where to Stay

Every hotel selected to be a part of a Tanzania safari is handpicked to meet our luxury standards, by experts who have spent time living and researching each destination. From unique mobile tented-camps to luxury lodges, you can visit Tanzania knowing your every need will be met, and that any help is on hand 24/7.

What to Pack

Never before will you have had to pack such a varied suitcase of belongings, but there are some key pieces you must bring with you on your trip…

Hiking gear. For your treks around the wilderness and hikes up the sides of Mount Kilimanjaro, having your best pair of hiking boots and padded coat with you is essential. If you are worried about the warmth your boots offer, or protection from mountain snow, invest in a waterproof shoe spray and bring some thick, thermal socks.

A water-bottle. When you are in Tanzania, you will be spending much of your time exploring in hot weather, which means you will need to stay hydrated throughout your expeditions. As members of Travelers Against Plastic, we recommend that you bring your sturdiest reusable bottle so that you can do your bit to help the planet.

A hat and sunglasses. Going on a safari will mean you are out in the sun for long hours, so along with a big bottle of water, bring a hat to protect your head, and your sunglasses to protect your eyes.

Sunscreen. Whether you are hiking up a mountain or lazing across the sand, sun block will be your best friend on holiday, and will ensure you don’t spend your days uncomfortable from sun burn.

A camera. There will be sights in on Tanzania safari tours that you won’t see anywhere else, which you will want to immortalise in photo format. Having a high-resolution digital camera round your neck is the perfect travel essential for this trip.
