Ultimate Guide to Tanzania and Zanzibar

From the snow-capped summit of Mount Kilimanjaro to the vast herds of game grazing on the endless plains of the Serengeti and the game rich Ngorongoro Crater, as well as the sun-kissed beaches of Zanzibar, a safari to Tanzania can offer it all! There is a reason why Tanzania and Zanzibar are among the most popular destinations in East Africa. 

Some of the top experiences from Lion World Travel safari tours in Tanzania and Zanzibar are below. Check out some of our exclusive Tanzania and Zanzibar trips in 2021.

Ultimate Guide to Tanzania and Zanzibar

Serengeti National Park

Tanzania is probably best known for the Serengeti, site of “The Greatest Show on Earth” where since time began the endless cycle of millions of wildebeest, zebra and other grazing animals crossing the plains in search of fresh grass is a spectacle not to be missed! The vast open savannah always delivers superb game viewing experiences.

Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro crown is a deep volcanic crater, the largest un flooded and unbroke caldera in the world. In size it ranges from 20kms in width and 600 meters deep - the Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtaking natural wonder.

The wildlife in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area are diverse and unique, the animals that are known to be located in the Ngorongoro Crater are lions, black rhinoceros, blue wildebeest, Grant’s zebras and many more species.

Tarangire National Park

The name of the park originates from the Tarangire River that crosses through the park, being the only source of water for wild animals during dry seasons. During the dry season thousands of animals can be seen migrating to the Tarangire National Park from Manyara National Park.

Guests are invited to inquire about the incredible treetop safari lodges that are inside the national park, allowing its guests to look down upon the movements of the safari.

Stone Town, Zanzibar

Stone Town is the oldest part of Zanzibar city which is rich in history and culture as the city has a number of distinctive features from its Arab, Persian, Indian and European traditions mixing together. A sightseeing experience on each of our tours allows guests to visit winding alleyways, bustling bazaars and exotic Arabic styled housing.

Lake Manyara

This stunning location is a must see stop on your next safari tour where (hopefully) you will see the fabled tree climbing lions. The lake and its surrounding regions are also known a haven for flamingos, hippo, baboon, impala and a variety of bird species.

The beaches of Zanzibar

Sun soaked white beaches, interspersed with picturesque fishing villages, lapped by the warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean provide the perfect place to relax, soak up the sun and take a break after an exhilarating safari. Water sports provide fun for adventure seekers.

Selous Game Reserve

Selous is Africa’s largest game reserve, larger than Denmark! Although the northern circuit is the most visited, venturing off the familiar path inevitably rewards visitors with phenomenal scenery and wildlife experiences.
