We do offer lots of groups excursions and occasionally organize for a bush hunting experience with the locals. Below are some of the interesting stuff you have to know about Tanzania.
Why go on Tanzania tours
Tanzania is a place where you can watch a live episode of the Lion King. This can best be done from Serengeti as it has the highest numbers of lions in the whole world. No safari to Tanzania can be complete without a visit to the Serengeti. It shelters almost every wildlife you would want to see. On a lucky visit, you could see the Wildebeest Migration, an adventure film in the wild. Ngongoro Conservation Area is a another great spot for wildlife viewing. The best sights here are elephants, cheetahs and lions. Ngorongoro and Serengeti are just adjascent to each other; all sitting on the Nothern region of Tanzania. Mount Kilimanjaro offers one of the best physical challenges to mountain climbers. It is referred to as the "Roof of Africa" because its apparently the highest point on the continent. No place gives you a better opportunity to relax and unwind like Zanzibar does. Its not only one of the best honeymoon spots but also one of the finest when it comes to beach holidays in Africa. There is just so much to see on safari tours to Tanzania.
Cost of a Tanzania safari
So how much does a safari in Tanzania cost? The cost of your Tanzania safari depends on a couple of things like the level of accommodation you are using, the number of days, preferred activities, level of vehicle, mode of transportation, your preferred destinations, bargaining power and so much more. Clients who opt for high end Tanzania safari lodges end up paying more for a super luxury experience. The best safari lodges in Tanzania can charge you over $1500 per person per night. This causes a huge hike on your total safari cost. More days and activities means more expenditures. If you wish to combine the Northern and Southern regions of Tanzania in a single package then flights will likely be involved to shorten the distance. Some of the ways of reducing the cost of your tours is by travelling in or joining a group, opting for shorter trips, staying in moderate accommodation facilities, choosing tour destinations that connect easily to each other and definitely bargainng more.
Where to go
The best tanzania safari parks are found on the northern region of the country. These include Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Manyara National Park, Arusha National Park, Mount Kilimanjaro National Park, Tarangire National Park plus a few more destinations. The most common and easiest to join are Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Manyara and Tarangire. Kilimanjaro is common too but a bit hard to connect with the rest since it requires a minimum of five days to ascend and descend it. The best safaris in Tanzania are experienced from the northern circuit. The south does have great destinations too but are very remote and require flights. Some of the destinations in the south are Ruaha National Park and Selous Game Reserve. The south is way much cheaper than the north in terms of accommodation. The parks are also less crowded by people which is not the case with the north. You will have all the loneliness in the wild on your game drives.
Southern VS Northern Tanzania Safaris
Both regions are good for tours in Tanzania. However, the north has some of the country's best tourist attractions. So many safaris take place in the north and the tour parks are usually crowded with so many tourists. This has led to a rise in competition around the region. The lodges are very pricey, vehicles are charged at a higher rate and meals are expensive too. Northern Tanzania Safaris are best for shorter trips BUT still, if your pockets are smiling, you can do longer trips for better experiences. A southern Tanzania safari is more affordable but you might have to budget money for flights. Travelling to the north is highly recommended.
Best time to go on a safari in Tanzania
Despite being an all year African safari destination. The best time to visit Tanzania is during the dry season from June through to October. Those that want to see the great wildebeest migration should visit between June and July. Wildebeest Calving can best be spotted between January to February. Animals become easy to spot in the dry season because they tend to roam more around water bodies to hydrate often unlike in the rainy season when the can easily access water from wherever they might be or perhaps take shelter from the rain. The southern circuit has some of the best spots for birders. Bird watching trips are recommended for the wet months of the year.
Flights VS 4x4 Safari Cars
Using flights to connect various destinations is a great chance to have a bird's eye view of the national parks. It also shortens the distances and makes your movements easy. Please note that Tanzania is a very big country and there is quite some distance between each tours destination. Flights come at an expense and most of the time they'll charge you for a 4x4 safari vehicle too since a guide will have to follow you and pick you up when the flight lands. Only opt for flights if you can fix them in your budget.
Budget or Luxury Tanzania Safaris
Tanzania receives over 1.5 million tourists each year. Over 90% of this number visits at least one or two of the northern circuit destinations. This huge number has increased competition and pushed it to a near luxury safari destination. If you have Tanzania safaris on your budget list then you ought to be ready to spend a good amount of money on your safari. The budget experiences are still expensive compared to other destinations like Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya. Just as mentioned above, the southern and western circuits offer a more rewarding budget experience compared to the north. You can get to save more by visiting Tanzania safari parks situated in these regions. Your Tanzania safari company also contributes much to your final safari quote. Some operators will offer you good rates while others will want to make abnormal profits from your trip. We offer very affordable Tanzania holidays. Our safari packages come at unbeatable offers.
Packing List & Clothing on a safari in Tanzania
Your activities and destinations determine the kind of stuff or clothes that you should pack for your tours in Tanzania. The kind of clothes or equipment that you pack for a Kilimanjaro safari contradicts the list for wildlife safaris. Its best to contact us after booking your safari and we shall guide you accordingly.
Zanzibar Island is one of the true tickets to paradise. The island is one of Africa's finest when it comes to beach holidays. Its a great place for honeymoon or romantic getaways too. This island is usually added to the end of your safari to kill of your fatigue before you depart. The easiest way to access Zanzibar is by using flights.
