How to Choose a Safari Tanzania

There are a lot of considerations that go into choosing a safari Tanzania, from accommodations to timing. It is also important to bring proper equipment, such as binoculars and a camera with good lenses.

Many companies offer safari packages with different levels of luxury. You should make sure that any company you choose has a license to operate in Tanzania.

National parks

One of the biggest decisions to make before embarking on a Tanzania luxury safari adventure is which national parks to visit. Serengeti and Ngorongoro are obvious choices, but some lesser-known parks like Lake Manyara offer a different ecosystem than the savannah grasslands of Serengeti and offer more solitude.

Another popular park is Ruaha, which is famous for its tree-climbing lions and a wide variety of mammals and bird species. The park is also in the transition zone between the northern and southern hemispheres, so species from both regions are abundant.

Kilimanjaro National Park is home to the world’s tallest free-standing mountain and lures trekkers from around the globe who want to conquer the Roof of Africa. It’s a wildlife-focused park with dense forest and savannah grasslands that attract predators, including lions and cheetahs. The best time to visit is June-October for wildlife sightings. But the park is open all year, and if you’re willing to work harder for your animal encounters, you can find even more wilderness in parks like Katavi and Selous.


In Tanzania, you’ll find a range of accommodations to choose from depending on the type of safari you plan. Budget and mid-range tours typically include staying in pre-set tented camps like Tumbili Camp while luxury tours will stay at resort-style safari lodges.

A lodge is often seen as more opulent than a tented camp and is often less expensive than a mobile safari camp. They offer a hotel-style experience and can accommodate families with interconnecting rooms. Some have expansive grounds for activities other than wildlife excursions.

A mobile safari camp is moved to a new location each day during the safari. They are more affordable than a lodge, but don’t have as many amenities. Some are adobe and stone-built tents, while others are repurposed safari trucks. They may have an open dining and lounge area, a bar, and incredible indigenous artwork.


Tanzania is home to some of the world’s best safari guides. You can trust them to make your trip more memorable and fun, and they’ll know where the animals are most likely to be. You can choose a private or group safari, depending on your needs and budget.

You’ll see some of the most beautiful sights on a Tanzania safari. The sun rising over the acacia trees, the elephants chewing on a tree for breakfast, the birds chirping – it’s truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

The Northern Safari Circuit is a popular choice for first-time safari goers and it includes attractions like the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Tarangire National Park, and Mount Kilimanjaro. However, the Southern and Western Safari circuits are also worth checking out, as they offer more untouched landscapes and diverse wildlife.



If you’re planning a safari Tanzania, there are many things to consider. You’ll need to consider your transportation options, the parks you’ll visit, and the types of accommodations you’ll stay in. You’ll also need to consider the time of year when you’re visiting. Many parks are more crowded during the Great Migration, which takes place from December through March.

Most tour companies will include a private vehicle and driver for your trip. This will be less crowded than a public vehicle and may come with special meals and drinks. They’ll also be able to take you to more remote areas that are less accessible by road.


You can also choose a budget option, such as traveling by local bus. The John Magufuli bus terminal in Dar es Salaam has buses that run to all corners of the country. But you’ll need a good understanding of Swahili to navigate the system. You’ll also want to pack a sleeping bag and mosquito repellent.
