With so many options available, travellers to Tanzania could be forgiven for not knowing exactly where to go and what to do. Most visitors head to the Northern Safari Circuit where they visit the Serengeti National Park to witness the Great Migration followed by the extraordinary spectacle of the Ngorongoro Crater which can be combined with a visit to - or climb up - Mount Kilimanjaro. If you choose rather to head south, many people fly into Dar es Salaam and it is worth spending a few days in this cosmpolitan, chaotic city and then heading along the coast or to Zanzibar Island. The Selous and Ruaha Game Reserves are largely undiscovered wonders further south and are famous for their massive herds of elephant. To the west lies Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika which both offer great water-based activities and beautiful beaches, while Lake Victoria forms the northern borders with Kenya and Uganda.

Zanzibar Island - Unguja to the locals - is a dream destination. With a troubled history, it is a fascinating part of the world which now enjoys peace and relative prosperity. Zanzibar is renowned for its beauty and beaches.
Serengeti National Park
The Serengeti Plains are world-famous for their teeming wildlife and the Great Migration, where thousands of animals gallop across the plains and raging rivers. You are almost guaranteed to spot the Big 5 here and it is arguably the world's best wilderness experience!
Ngorongoro Crater National Park
Often referred to as Africa's Garden of Eden for its density and diversity of wildlife, the Ngorongoro Crater offers incredible game viewing in a quite unbelievable setting - inside the world's largest unbroken caldera.
Mahale National Park
From the azure waters and sandy shores of Lake Tanganyika, the longest lake in the world, to the lush forested slopes of the Mahale Mountains where chimpanzees roam, the Mahale National Park is so unique a safari destination you could hardly imagine it.
Tarangire National Park
Tarangire National Park is a hidden gem in Tanzania's Northern Safari Circuit. With herds of elephant, lions and other game flocking to its river banks and swamps during the dry season, it offers an excellent East African Safari!
Arusha is a pleasant town beneath Mount Meru and an ideal base to explore Tanzania's Northern Safari Circuit. It is hard to think of another place in the world that is in close proximity to such a variety of national parks and game reserves!
Ruaha National Park
The game viewing starts the moment your feet touch the ground (sometimes before your plane has even landed) and it doesn't end until you decide, reluctantly, to leave. A more exceptional safari destination you would be hard pressed to find.
Selous Game Reserve
This immense, brooding piece of land is the oldest and biggest game reserve in Africa, and one of the largest protected areas in the world. If you want to get off the beaten track and see herds of game up close then this is the place for you!
Mount Kilimanjaro National Park
Whether or not you scale the 5895 metre Uhuru Peak or not, it is well worth paying a visit to the world's highest free-standing mountain. It is home to an array of wild animals and breathtaking landscapes close to the equator.
Dar es Salaam
Dar es Salaam is better referred to as the "Haven of Peace" in historical circles, but in others it is well known for its cosmopolitan and attractive landmarks and its diversity of people and cultures within Tanzania - all ideal to make that tourist-stop unforgettable and intriguing.
Take a trip to the world's largest tropical lake and kick back on unspoilt beaches, visit secluded islands, sail across the waters on a dhow and fish for the massive Nile Perch! It's a trip worth taking and will add to your Tanzania safari
Lake Manyara National Park
Often used as a stopover on the way to and from Ngorongoro and the Serengeti, with its tree-climbing lions, fluttering flamingos, herds of elephant and scenic setting, we believe Lake Manyara is a destination in its own right.
Katavi National Park
Untouched, unspoilt and little visited, yet brimful, packed and overflowing with game, the remote Katavi National Park in the western area of Tanzania is an African safari experience unlike any other and well worth the extra effort it may take to get there.
