Tanzania Travel Information

From wilderness safaris to trekking mountains in the southern highlands to snoozing on idyllic beaches, Tanzania tours provide the amateur and the experienced with holidays to remember.

 

Connected to the Masai Mara grasslands of Kenya, the Tanzanian Serengeti is the top spot in Africa for wildlife safaris and tours, seeing African game in their unspoiled habitat and perching among some of the most beautiful and rare animals in the world. The annual wildebeest migration is arguably its greatest wildlife spectacle and simply can't be missed.

 

Tanzania tours wouldn’t be complete without a trek up Mt. Kilimanjaro, a tour of the Ngorongoro Crater and a visit to the colonial Zanzibar Town.

Tanzania Tours

From wilderness safaris to trekking mountains in the southern highlands to snoozing on idyllic beaches, Tanzania tours provide the amateur and the experienced with holidays to remember.

Best time of the year to visit Tanzania?

January and February are widely considered as the best months to visit Tanzania due to being the start of the dry season. Similarly, June through to October are just as spectacular for Tanzania tours. Off months are March-April and November-December.

Food and Culture of Tanzania

Typically carbohydrate based, the cornmeal porridge called Ugali is a staple dish in the Tanzanian diet. Tanzanian food also boasts many luxurious spicy dishes, particularly around the coastal regions. A welcome addition to fish and rice meals is the common use of coconut milk, providing sensuous flavors. Tanzanian food also consists of a lot of beans, sorghum, millet and plantain. Groundnuts are an important part of the diet in Tanzania too. With 128 languages spoken throughout Tanzania and many tribes, it is wonderful to get lost in and absorb the diversity of Tanzanian culture. Enjoy the splendid and meticulous arts and crafts and marvel at the array of glamorous clothing within tribes.

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in Tanzania

Linked to the Masai Mara grasslands of Kenya, the Tanzanian Serengeti is the top spot in Africa for wildlife safaris, seeing African game in their unspoiled habitat and perching among some of the most beautiful and rare animals in the world. This vast park attracts visitors from all over the world and one sight that simply can't be missed on Tanzania tours is the annual wildebeest migration, a wildlife seekers heaven.

Just the name Mt Kilimanjaro should be enough to entice any adventure traveler to Tanzania's National Park and to the peak of Africa. Tours to Mt Kilimanjaro offer unrivaled sights from the top of Africa's highest and most recognized mountain. Due to the dense rainforest at the bottom of the mountain, Mt Kilimanjaro treks offer an African safari tour on top of just the splendor of the main climb.

Ngorongoro Crater is widely considered as one of the most special African experiences. Its untainted landscape and rich wildlife offers arguably the best safari tours in Africa. With amazing animals ranging from Rhinos, elephants, lions and buffaloes plus many, many more, along with being introduced to local Masai Mara tribesmen, this scintillating tour is one reason why Tanzania is an African gem. Ruhua National park is Tanzania's second largest and also offers tremendous amounts of game.

Zanzibar Town is in a realm of its own and a whole new reason to visit Tanzania. It is a World Heritage Site for a reason. With its beautifully networked labyrinthine alleys, meandering below picturesque colonial architecture, the old quarter of Stone Town is a walking museum and is warrants an imperative visit on everybody's list. Sitting quietly a few streets down you will stumble across exotic palm lined beaches and pristine blue waters. An incredible discovery for newcomers to Tanzania tours.

Teresa Flaquer, April 2018

Everything was as expected, excellent tour guide and we even met Amanda personally, she kindly showed up for a moment to greet us at our first hotel in Moshi, nice people!

Oonagh Whyte, April 2018

Group of 6 girls traveling on safari for one week. We had the most amazing experience from start to finish and couldn’t recommend Amanda enough.



Our tour guide Tom met us at the airport and filled us in on our plan for the next week. Tom really made our trip the most memorable experience possible. He was a lovely man who was very kind and patient with us. His knowledge blew us away, he always had answers to our questions whether they were about the wildlife, the culture or about the country itself. He never left us without an answer even though we asked him hundreds of questions each day! Along with his wealth of knowledge, he had a great personality and was brilliant fun. We all felt like we really got to know him and felt comfortable asking any questions. He even joined in on our card games at night time. We could not fault Tom in any way, he is truly excellent at his job.



Ommy was our chef. He too, was absolutely brilliant. He checked in with our dietary requirements, and took them into consideration when cooking our meals. We were not expecting to get food anywhere near as good as this, he cooked everything from scratch, some nights with nothing but a gas ring and a head torch, but still the food was of restaurant standard. His homemade bread was served hot with soup, his homemade pancakes for breakfast were also delicious. He always ensured that everything was spotless before cooking. There was great variety in dishes and the flavour was amazing. Ommy was also extremely friendly and fun.



The overall standard of service was brilliant, the Jeep was comfortable with a small fridge and plug sockets along with brilliant binoculars and a pop-up roof. Everything was extremely clean from tents, mattresses, sleeping bags, Jeep , etc. we felt very safe at all times, and at no stage felt uncomfortable.



Amanda provided a very personalized service at a competitive price. From the first time I contacted her, she was helpful and precise. Any time I emailed her with queries or concerns, she replied promptly with very helpful responses, and never made us feel like a bother. Her company is small and I feel that this is reflected in the wonderfully personalized service that she offers.



We pitched tents each night with the help of others, the facilities were quite good. We visited Lake Manyara Park, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. These were all excellent, we saw all the animals we wanted to see and more- elephants, lions, cubs, giraffe, zebra, cheetah, leopard, rhino, baboons, etc. Tom ensured that it was never a problem and made a huge effort to put us into the best viewing position possible. The views in the Ngorongoro Crater were amazing, I would recommend to anyone to go around March, although it is the rainy season it only rained briefly once or twice in the week, and you have the benefit of seeing the gorgeous green fields, landscapes and vegetation, they were simply beautiful. Just bring some trousers for early mornings as it can be a little cold at times.
We also took a trip to 3 different tribes, it was fantastic to see how they live, to see the different ways of life and traditions they have. We stayed overnight with one tribe, and although the experience was great, we would not recommend it as it was quite upsetting at times to see the children living in these conditions and there were flies everywhere. However, this is no reflection on Amanda or her company as this was our personal choice, and Tom and Ommy did their best to make sure we were comfortable at all times. I would recommend a day trip to the tribes.



Overall, our experience was overwhelmingly positive. the trip exceeded all our expectations more than we could have imagined. I would not hesitate in recommending Amanda, Tom, Ommy and their company to anyone interested in a safari trip of a lifetime.

Rebecca Karlsson, January 2018

Amanda did a great job for us. It’s not easy coordinating a 2 week adventure for a family of six through multiple African countries. Everything went much more smoothly than I had dared to hope for. Amanda’s suggestions were spot on and all of us agree that this was the best trip we have taken together as a family. Many thanks to the trip.me team. They are trustworthy and reliable as well as friendly. This is the second time I’ve used this company and can’t wait to go with them again in the near future. Thanks again Amanda, Francis, Tracey and Living Temba for making our dream vacation a reality.

Hanson has taken time to listening to my requests, adjusting his proposals. As a result, he built up a great safari tour at reasonable price. His local organisation was efficient and I have had a very good time with my guide, Hamza.

Edel F, September 2017

From my first contact with Eliya via email I received very prompt, concise & informative details from him on all my questions - and there were many! He also met me personally at the beginning of my trip & on the day I flew to Zanzibar. I received a first class service from him & his driver/guide.
