Tanzania has three main safari circuits, namely;
The Northern Circuit: This is the famous safari circuit that receives more tourists than the other two circuits. The circuit includes the attractions of Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Arusha National Parks, Oldupai Gorge and Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro, to name a few.
The Southern Circuit: The second most visited and least crowded circuit of the Northern Circuit. Although the circuit doesn’t see as many tourists as the northern circuit, the southern circuit attractions offer a more remote wildlife experience in a unique setting that gives a sense of African adventure. Southern Circuit attractions include Ruaha National Park, Mikumi, Saadani, Selous Game Reserve, Udzungwa Mountains, Kitulo National Park, and the Stone Age site of Isimila, to name a few. The islands and beaches (Zanzibar and Mafia are also classified as attractions in the southern loop)
The Western Circuit – This is the least visited circuit and includes attractions such as Katavi National Park, Gombe Stream and the Mahale Mountains, the latter two famous for their unique experience and specific attraction: chimpanzees. Walking with the chimpanzees of the Gombe Stream and the Mahale Mountains is a magical experience. The circuit also offers beautiful beaches on the longest, second deepest and least polluted lake in the world, Lake Tanganyika.
