Tanzania is a land of extremes. Home to Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, and its deepest and largest lakes, the country has the world’s largest game reserve and one of the most spectacular natural sights in the world – the annual Great Migration of the Serengeti.
Tanzania is the wildlife safari destination – simply put, it has it all, and you can seek out the Big Five here. With 25 percent of its land surface area enjoying protected status the country is home to some of the most famed game parks in the world, including the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Selous Game Reserve. Tanzania is also home to seldom visited parks (Ruaha, Katavi, and Mahale Mountains) which will give you an authentic wilderness adventure.
Tanzania is not only for wildlife. The 100+ ethnic groups give Tanzania a rich cultural diversity. Visit Maasai villages or join a morning hunt with the Hadzabe, on our Tanzania safaris you can learn about many cultures and customs. The landscape of Tanzania is equally diverse, with high mountains, rolling plateaus, and endless plains where you can hike, camp, or join an exhilarating walking safari.
A Special Tanzania Safari
Consider this your invitation to join Dan Hopkins, owner of GrassTrack Safaris, for a privately guided 12-day safari through the game parks of northern Tanzania. Our guide is one of the top in Tanzania (he's guided for BBC and Nat Geo film crews) and we'll join a big cat biologist as we participate in a Citizen Science project and assist in his research of the lions and cheetahs of the Serengeti. We'll visit the beautiful Tarangire National Park and the stunning Ngorongoro Crater before traveling to the Serengeti. Our visit will be near the end of the calving season when tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra give birth - surely one of the greatest natural history events on Earth!
We're offering only 1 departure for this extraordinary safari:
