Transcendent. Romantic. Teeming. Tanzania’s wildlife and landscapes are show-stopping.
Nature reserves, traditional tribes, sun-blushed islands, and archeological sites – Tanzania’s variety is boundless. With the wondrous Great Migration from the Serengeti to the Kenyan Maasai Mara, there’s already enough reason to come, but add the godly Ngorongoro Crater, Kilimanjaro’s ice-capped peaks, and the ‘Cradle of Mankind’ at Olduvai Gorge and it’s a no-brainer.
Fly in a helicopter to Lake Victoria to fish for giant Nile perch; journey out to bright red waters of Lake Natron to watch flamingo flocks flood the horizon; fly over the Ngorongoro Crater, the largest un-flooded, unbroken caldera in the world; arrive by helicopter to a private mobile camp in southern Serengeti to sleep in the middle of the migratory route. Trek the foothills of mighty Mount Kilimanjaro or fly over its peaks; explore the coffee plantations of Arusha; walk along the sands of the aromatic spice-islands off the romantic coast of Dar es Salaam; dive from a traditional dhow and try your hand at spearfishing with a local guide.
Where to Stay
Luxury lodges; private mobile camps; Hemingway-esque tents.
When to Go
To experience the majesty of the migration, late-June to October are prime, however there is incredible game all year around in the North. Combine with Kenya before posting to the Seychelles to chill.
