From spotting millions of wildebeest, zebra and other antelope crossing the Serengeti plains, climbing the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro or sipping a cool drink on the white sand beaches of Zanzibar – Tanzania offers travelers some of the most diverse safari experiences in Africa. .
A vibrant and beautiful country, Tanzania is blessed with exceptional parks and reserves and the winning combination of unrivaled game drives and dazzling tropical beaches. Because Tanzania is so large (nearly 1.5 times the size of Texas), it makes sense to break down the country’s top vacation spots into four areas:
Northern Safari Circuit: The most popular safari route in Tanzania, covering Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara, Tarangire and Kilimanjaro.
Coast and Islands of Tanzania: The country’s beaches, particularly on islands like Zanzibar, are stunning and very accessible.
Southern Tanzania: Includes the wonderfully wild and underrated Nyerere (formerly Selous) and Ruaha, some of Tanzania’s best kept safari secrets.
Western Tanzania – Drive to the corners of Katavi and Mahale to experience the best off the beaten track safaris in Tanzania.
