Feb 15, 2023, Reading Time: 6 minutes

Tanzania is a country with an abundance of wildlife, huge savannah landscapes, the highest mountains in Africa, and brilliant blue lakes. Over the past few years, more and more tourists have begun to visit Tanzania. All of the associations between Tanzania and the Serengeti, Mount Kilimanjaro, and some of the top safaris in the world remain true. In actuality, it includes all of that and more. So grab your sunscreen and safari hat! Let's take a safari around Tanzania's essential information.

Best Time to Visit 

When making travel plans to Tanzania, the weather is most likely the most crucial factor to take into account. It is challenging to predict the weather in this vast and diverse nation. There are a few trends you may identify, though.

There are two rainy seasons in the nation: from November to December and from March to May. The dry season, which lasts from June through October, is the best time to travel. Visit during June and July if you want to see the nearly two million zebra and wildebeest that make up the Great Migration. If you're not too concerned about the migration and still want to go on a safari, the animals are forced to watering holes during the dry summer months, which makes it much easier to observe them.

Tanzania Best Safari

The great wildebeest migration, in which a herd of over two million wildebeest and zebra undertake their epic annual journey with countless predators on their heels, has become Tanzania one of Africa's most well-known safari destinations. Zanzibar, Pemba, and Mafia are just a few of the stunning tropical beaches you can visit on Tanzania's best safari, which also brings you to thriving parks for unmatched animal viewing. In addition, Tanzania is the site of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest mountain, with the greatest peak elevation of 5,895 meters (19,340 feet).

When the locations, lodging, transportation, and other factors are carefully chosen and expertly planned by a professional agent and safari specialist, the safari in Tanzania is at its best.

We advise selecting Mid-range or Luxury lodgings if you want to enjoy your safari in Tanzania. The primary item to think about while planning your safari in Tanzania is your mode of transportation because in some areas the roads are bumpy and difficult to navigate during the rainy season, so you need a comfortable safari car. We advise picking a 44 Toyota Land Cruiser or Land Rover. For you to fully enjoy the history of the wildlife and the country in general, let your safari expert select a knowledgeable, experienced safari guide.

Great Migration Safari

With the massive columns of wildebeest visible from orbit, this is the biggest animal herd migration in the history of the animal kingdom. Around 1.2 million wildebeest, 300,000 zebras, and other gazelle, together with topi and other species, travel continuously through the Serengeti-Mara environment. They migrate mostly in quest of nourishing grass and water. Along with the migrating animals, it's common to see predators like lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, wild dogs, and crocodiles looking for the migrating animals' food. In conclusion, calves are born in the southern Serengeti near the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. After that, the animals go across Serengeti counterclockwise into the Masai Mara in Kenya before returning to Tanzania near the end of the year to begin their annual migration once more.

Because the Great Wildebeest Migration is entirely dependent on rain, new grass, and other variables, it is not the most predictable migration. As a result, we advise you to consult with our safari expert.

Zanzibar Safari

The Zanzibar archipelago, which is 15 miles off Tanzania's coast in the Indian Ocean in the country's eastern region, is a great place to unwind after a safari in Tanzania. There are other smaller islands as well as Unguja Island and Pemba Island, two larger ones. 

The island of Unguja, which includes Stone Town, the historical center designated by UNESCO as a world heritage site, is where the capital city is situated. The two distinct islands provide various safari experiences that are unmatched by any other location on earth. The following are some of the top Zanzibar experiences:

  • Wildlife - Here, we're referring to the mangrove habitat, the Ngezi rainforest, and Jozani National Park, all of which provide a wide range of vistas for viewing both flora and fauna.
  • Zanzibar Culture & Tradition - Zanzibar is the greatest place to go if you want to learn about Swahili culture. Your vacation will be unforgettable because to the well-known heritage site of Stone Town, which features a mixture of Swahili and ancient structures like the Maruhubi Palace and Kizimkaz Mosques.
  • Sea Safari - You may learn a lot about marine organisms by going on a sea safari. Similar to the Mnemba Marine Nature Reserve is the well-known sea safari.
  • Local Cuisine - Zanzibar's regional foods are in some ways delectable and have significance in regard to Swahili culture. In Zanzibar, there are many fresh delicacies available, including fruits, spices, and fish.

The ideal way to cap off your memorable safari in Tanzania's savannah is to spend a few days relaxing on the beach in Zanzibar.
