Ngorongoro Crater

Known to local Maasai tribes as the “gift of life” the Ngorongoro Crater is a unique wildlife-watching destination in Tanzania. The Ngorongoro Crater was formed by the collapse of a massive volcano thousands of years ago. Today, it is home to a diverse concentration of wildlife including large tusk elephants, leopards, lions, giraffes, cheetahs, and even black rhinos on occasion. The animals combined with the varied landscapes make the crater a destination like no other.

Travellers can explore this wildlife haven on a game drive before visiting one of the local tribes in the area.

 

ARUSHA, TANZANIA

Arusha is known as the safari capital of Tanzania. This is where most northern Tanzanian safaris will start and finish.  This town is a great spot to explore in itself. Travellers can wander through the markets and pick up Tanzanian souvenirs, crafts and curios while absorbing the local vibe and culture. Arusha is also at the centre of the Tanzania coffee belt. This makes the town the perfect place to embark on a tour of an authentic East African coffee farm.

SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

Year in and year out, the Serengeti remains one of the most popular safari destinations in Tanzania and the world. There is an abundance of wildlife to be seen, a range of safari options and a number of exciting safari activities available. For a truly unforgettable Serengeti safari experience, travellers can rise with the sun and embark on an early morning hot air balloon ride across the acacia-dotted plains. The Serengeti is also the scene of the Great Migration; under the guidance of expert rangers, travellers can track and witness the impressive herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle as they make their annual journey.

Tarangire National Park

Giant baobabs and impressive herds of elephants are two of the most memorable features of this beautiful safari destination. Tarangire National Park is easily accessible from Arusha and sees fewer tourists than its more well-known safari counterparts such as the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater giving travellers are quieter and more secluded safari getaway. Along with the herds of elephants, Travelers will marvel at the landscapes and wildlife as Tarangire is also home to buffalo, wildebeest, giraffe, and zebra, as well as cheetah, leopard and quirky tree-climbing lion.

ZANZIBAR

Nestled just off of the coast of mainland Tanzania is the East African island paradise of Zanzibar. Azure blue waters, white sand beaches and palm trees swaying in a warm sea breeze. What more could you ask for from an African beach holiday? Add to this the unique culture of Zanzibar which is a blend of African and Arabic influences best seen in the winding streets and marketplaces of Stone Town. Zanzibar is home to a luscious patchwork of spice and fruit farms. During a visit to Zanzibar, travellers can look forward to beach relaxation combined with vibrant Zanzibar culture, tastes and aromas.
