Synonymous with the images associated with safari, Tanzania is an iconic destination that offers spectacle and scenery second to none. With its natural phenomena like the legendary annual Great Migrations, and awe-inspiring landmarks such as Mount Kilimanjaro, the Ngorongoro Crater and Great Rift Valley, it’s a country rich in wildlife and scenery – as far ranging as the sweeping plains of the Serengeti to the sandy beaches of Zanzibar. Safari365 has been deeply entrenched in the Tanzanian safari industry for many years, and our specialists have travelled it extensively and are able to advise you on the best itinerary for your travel preferences.
Tanzania’s climate is tropical. The coastal areas are hot and humid, while the north-western highlands are cool and temperate. It has two rainy seasons – short rains from October to December and long rains from March to June. The coast is still pleasant during the hotter months (December and January) thanks to the ocean air that brings the temperatures down, but there will still be high humidity.
As the country is a highly popular tourist destination, and therefore well equipped for travellers, there is a broad cost spectrum available for every aspect of your trip – from dining out, to transport options, and accommodation. Resorts and lodges in remote parts of the bush, or on a smaller island will naturally come at a premium, as will splashing out on such activities as hot-air balloon rides and climbing Kilimanjaro, but there are ways to do it more modestly.
