BEST Safaris In Tanzania

Tanzania is well known for having an abundance of wildlife. Few places can match Tanzania’s natural beauty and cultural richness, which includes the Ngorongoro Crater, Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar, and the Serengeti all in one place. A Tanzanian safari offers exceptional game watching in a spectacular backdrop of snowy peaks, volcanic craters, and the Masai steppe of boundless grasslands, from the great migration of the Serengeti to the more distant parks. Along the route of this Great Migration, there are several big cats and vast herds of wildebeest, zebra, and Thompson’s gazelle that cross the grasslands every year. If you feel active or daring, go on a multi-day walking safari in the Serengeti or Ruaha National Parks. Attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak and the world’s highest free-standing mountain. Don’t miss a visit to the exotic spice islands of Zanzibar for an infusion of aromas and architecture in historic Stone Town.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Tanzania is a reasonably safe country. In fact, as of 2022, it’s one of the safest African countries for locals and tourists. According to the 2022 Global Peace Index, Tanzania is the sixth safest country in Africa

The best time to visit Tanzania is during the Dry season, from late June to October, when wildlife viewing is generally at its best. The wildebeest migration in the Serengeti is usually during June and July. The time to see the wildebeest calving is from January to February. The southern and western circuit parks are best visited during the Dry season (June to October), unlike the more popular northern circuit parks that can be visited year-round.

From snow-capped peaks to ‘Big Five’s safaris and paradise islands, the East African country is basking in its new-found status of being a hot travel destination for both luxurious and adventurous travelers. Here are the best and most beautiful places to visit in Tanzania

Tanzania has a vast spread of accommodation options, ranging from luxurious game lodges in game-filled national parks to heritage buildings in the winding alleys of Stone Town. From sprawling resorts and rustic beach huts lining Zanzibar’s beaches, extending down-budget to a plethora of modest mid-range hotels and cheap, rough-around-the-edges guest houses.

Hotels in Tanzania include superbly finished, expensive luxury hotels with all the trimmings in the cities and popular tourist areas. You can find mid-range generic hotels favored by local business people. Finally, there is the option of cheap board and lodgings in the regional towns, which, although sometimes adequate, have little atmosphere and can have security issues.

include Kiswahili, English, Maasai, and Meru.

Different groups also speak many distinct ethnic languages within Tanzania. The coastal region speaks a different dialect of Kiswahili than the rest of the country. Jakaya Kikwete, the former president of Tanzania, spoke eight different languages. Kiswahili is the language of school instruction and the primary language of education and institutional communication.

English is taught in secondary school and used as a language of instruction in some higher education institutions. Many adults also receive instruction in English through adult education programs.

More recently, Kiswahili became a lingua franca among East African countries. It is the official working language of the African Union and other international organizations.

The Tanzanian Shilling is the official currency of Tanzania. You can use the Tanzanian Shilling for minor expenses like shopping at local markets, restaurants, and supermarkets. The US dollar is used everywhere, especially in tourist areas where merchants prefer dollars over local currency. So make sure you have shillings as well as dollars in your pocket. If bringing cash in US dollars, ensure bank notes are in good condition and not older than 2006. Money can only be exchanged in banks (don’t forget to bring your passport).

Tourism is a big source of income for Tanzania, and a big part of the park fees go towards wildlife conservation. Tanzania’s national parks are the most renowned safari destinations, named UNESCO World Heritage Sites and Natural Wonder of the World. High park fees help to prevent the parks from being overcrowded, harming both flora and fauna.

  

Here are some example fees (2021):

 

  • Serengeti Park Fee: 70 USD per person per 24 hours (excl. 18% VAT)
  • Ngorongoro Crater Service: 300 USD per vehicle
  • Camping Fee: 71 USD per person to overnight in one of the national parks

All visitors to Tanzania require a return or onward ticket and a valid passport with an entry or re-entry visa duly endorsed. Visas are not required for visitors from some member countries of the Commonwealth and other specified countries. Visas can be applied online or obtained from any Tanzania Diplomatic Mission or Consulate abroad and at main entry points, including international airports, sea ports, and border posts.

We flew out of Zanzibar to do a 2 day safari. My parents and I spent a day in Tarangire National Park and our guide, Kaana got us up close to the animals so that we could get good shots of the animals. That evening we spent a night in Karatu. The accommodation, Pamoja, was very lovely and welcoming. The food was delicious and the rooms were spacious. The second day we spent in Ngorongoro Crater and saw a plethora of animals! The flights, meals, and accomadation were all planned and were well organized. Any hiccups that arose during our trip were resolved quickly and positively by Amani and Kaana! We would definitely recommend using Key2Africa Safaris and having Kaana as your guide, he was great and very knowledgeable!

Me and my sister we decided to go for 5 day safari in Tanzania with Key2africa safaris. We were not sure about what time to travel to Tanzania. Amani was very helpful and good in communication. Everything was easy planning the trip with him. After trip he asked us if everything with the trip was good we really enjoyed from the start to the end. I highly recommended Key2Africa Safaris.

We had an amazing experience with James. He was determined in Tarangire to find a group of elephants and he made it happen. We were up and close. On another day he navigated us towards a leopard sitting next to the road, something super rare to find. Besides his skills in finding the best and most beautiful places, James is also an amazing storyteller giving background information about Tanzania, the way of living together with nature and animals, and experiences from earlier trips. I definitely recommend this safari company, it’s all about the experience and forging long lasting friendships.

I loved travelling with Key2Africa. I solo travelled with them for three weeks and, among other things, climbed the Kilimanjaro and did the walking safari and the Rhino sanctuary. They provide excellent service and the guides were always friendly, flexible and knowledgeable, making for a very wonderful, smooth and organic experience. Highly recommend this company and will definitely book with them again!

Just traveled to Tanzania for 13 days. The group I traveled with used Key2Africa Tours & Safaris everyday. For land, water and air destinations/ excursions. All members of the company were professional, helpful, happy/pleasant/ cheerful, accommodating and full of energy. Mr. Amani the head of the company made sure everyone's needs were met and surpassed! Case in point, I had purchased some personalized items from a local vender in Bagamoya with the promise of delivery at a later date to complete the personalization. Amani was unaware of my business transactions. A couple of days had passed and now the group was in Arusha. I mentioned to Amani my Bagamoya transaction and within the hour he got back to me after speaking to the vender (who did a fantastic job) and a day or so later I had my purchases. Door to door service effortlessly!! I would recommend Key2Africa Tour & Safaris Ltd. Extremely happy customer!

I had an amazing experience with Amani and his staff exploring Tanzania. From Bagamoyo, Zanzibar, Der as Salaam, and Kilimanjaro each destination was logistically, well-planned out and executed. I appreciated his love for his country and his excitement in sharing it with us. Amani has a great sense of humor and an even bigger heart. I encourage anyone planning a trip to Tanzania to work with Amani and his team.

The best to ever do it. He has been hosting my groups from the US for 4 years and I wouldn’t have it done any other way. Group sizes are 14-33 travelers at a time. A true honorable and professional tour service.
