combining a safari with zanzibar
The iconic game reserves of mainland Tanzania are located within a short flight of the wonderful tropical beaches of Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia islands. This makes Tanzania an ideal country for combining a luxury safari with a relaxing beach holiday!

when to go…
If you’d like to see the Great Annual Migration of thousands of zebra and wildebeest unfold, head to Tanzania’s northern parks – the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation Areas. The best time to witness the migration is probably February – March when the wildebeest and zebra have their young. Not only can you enjoy seeing baby animals, but the predators are at their highest number too.
The migration usually moves out of the Serengeti area by the end of June and doesn’t return until December.
June to November is Tanzania’s dry season and is the best time to visit all the parks, especially Tanzania’s Southern Parks (which become more difficult to reach during the wet season). During the dry season the animals tend to congregate around permanent water and it isn’t so hot and humid.
The so called Northern Circuit, centred on the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, is generally considered to be the best location for traditional overland safaris, providing an awesome combination of scenery, wildlife and culture. This is also where the incredible migration of thousands of wildebeest and zebra takes place.
Northern Tanzania is also home to several tribes, most notably the Maasai and the Hadzabe, and nearby Mount Kilimanjaro is arguably one of the world’s most beautiful and romantic mountain peaks…
- 7 Night Choice – Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, Northern Serengeti (7 nights)
- 10 Night Choice – Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, Northern Serengeti (10 nights)
- Elewana Sky Safari – Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti (7 nights)
- Classic Asilia Safari – Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti (9 nights)
In the south and west of mainland Tanzania are the superb fly-in reserves of Ruaha, Selous, Katavi and Mahale (the latter being perhaps the best location for primate interaction in Africa).
Ruaha is one of the finest game reserves in Africa… one whose reputation is founded upon its enormous size, lack of human encroachment, broad range of landscapes and habitats, rich and diverse range of wildlife, the quality of its camps and superb quality of guiding. A very special place indeed!
The Selous is located on a humid coastal plateau, with the Great Rufiji river winding its way through the heart of the landscape. The numbers of game in the Selous are astounding, and it is particularly famous for elephants, cheetahs, giraffes, black rhinos, African hunting dogs, hippos and crocodiles.
