Tanzania Adventure Safari Holiday Vacations Destinations

Elephants Embrace Tanzania Adventure Safari Holiday Vacations 

 Tanzania offers a wide range of National parks as well as little visited game reserves and Private wildlife conservancies and concessions and not forgetting the sandy beaches and the remote Islands of Zanzibar Island, Pemba Island, Mnemba Private Island and Mafia Island in the Indian Ocean and Rhubondo Island in Lake Victoria.

The incredible endless plains of the Serengeti  always attract many visitors, eager to see its prides of lions lazing in the shade and catch a glimpse of the elusive leopard, or to witness the herds of thundering wildebeest during the Great Migration. The breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater is rarely left out of a first-time itinerary. As the home of Africa’s largest concentration of wildlife, that not only offers sightings of black rhino, hippos and lions, but far-reaching views and wonderful sunsets.

Tanzania is also popular with experienced and private safari-goers thanks to its more remote southerly parks, which remain largely untamed and lesser-visited. Selous is Africa’s largest game reserve and offers a true wilderness adventure, with game viewing from vehicles, on foot or by boat along the mighty Rufiji River. Ruaha also offers a safari experience away from the crowds and is a birdwatcher’s paradise. Saadani is a coastal wildlife sanctuary, whilst Katavi sees few visitors to its wide-open plains.

Tanzania safaris also include visits to a Maasai village, and Olduvai Gorge is one of the world’s most significant archaeological sites. And for the more active, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro provides extensive views over the Kenyan plains.

Serengeti National Park Leopard

 

 The Serengeti National Park, meaning “endless plains” in the Maasai language, is undoubtedly one of the world’s most celebrated wilderness areas and is an ongoing source of inspiration to writers, filmmakers and photographer alike.

The legendary Serengeti, known locally as ‘Siringitu’ meaning “The Endless Plains” in the Maasai language, covers 14,763 square kilometers. The Serengeti National Park is one of the world’s largest wildlife sanctuaries and the path of the world’s largest and greatest wildlife migration circuit.

Singita Serengeti Cheetah 

 Singita Serengeti Grumeti Game Reserve, situated adjacent to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, is an integral part of the Serengeti-Mara Ecosystem and the home of the Great Migration. The reserve was created by the Tanzanian government in 1994 in order to protect the path of the annual wildebeest migration and the indigenous biodiversity of this vast and important ecosystem.

Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area, Tanzania

 

 A volcano explodes over two million years ago in northern Tanzania... and the Ngorongoro Crater is born. Kilometer after kilometer of flat plains ringed with steep walls thousands of meters high are created, this is the world's largest unbroken caldera with sides 600m high and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Lake Manyara Pelican in flight Tanzania

 

 Cradled in the glory of its surroundings below the sheer majesty if the Rift Valley wall, Lake Manyara lies serene, spreading in a heat haze backed by a thin green band of forest and the sheer 600 meter red and brown cliffs of the escarpment.

Tarangire National Park Lions

 

 Arguably northern Tanzania's most interesting park, yet one of the least visited, Tarangire is justly famed for attracting large herds of elephant and zebra, ancient Baobab trees and the impressive valley of the Tarangire river.

Lone Climber Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro at Sunrise

 

 Kilimanjaro the name itself is a mystery wreathed in clouds. It might mean Mountain of Light, Mountain of Greatness or Mountain of Caravans or it might not. The local people, the Wachagga, don't even have a name for the whole massif, only Kipoo (and now known as Kibo), for the familiar snowy peak that stands imperious, overseer of the continent, the summit and the roof of Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro.

Arusha Town Clock Tanzania

 

 The attractive little town of Arusha is situated beneath the towering peaks of Mt. Meru and Kilimanjaro. Renowned as the safari capital of Tanzania, it offers a plethora of attractions and adventures and an everyday sight of the Maasai in their bold, red-colored garments

Arusha National Park Sunsrise

 

Arusha National Park is a secret jewel of many facets. It is not only the closest national park to Arusha town, but also one of the most beguiling. This is a treasure, a rich tapestry of habitats, teeming with animals and birds.
