Why We Love Tanzania

It is Tanzania’s incredible diversity of game-viewing areas with unparalleled numbers of game, herds of elephant, giant migrations of zebra and wildebeest that appeals to us.   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 to the people. Tanzania is home to some charming hosts. There are a few different tribes who make their lives in the bush, but the most well-known is the colorfully dressed Maasai. 

Lion World Travel's Ultimate Guide to Tanzania and Zanzibar.

The Serengeti shines as a constant attraction for wildlife lovers. But where else should you go on safari in Tanzania? Here are our top suggestions.

Serengeti National Park

Game viewing is always exceptional in the Serengeti. Roam the great plains in search of the migratory herds of zebra, wildebeest and other grazing animals and their territorial predators: lion, leopard and cheetah, which usually occurs between May and August.

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is a remnant of an ancient volcano with one of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. Known as ‘the eighth wonder of the world' the Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa's best-known wildlife arenas. Deep within the Crater some 25,000 large mammals wander the plains and forests, dominated by enormous bull elephants, rhinos and lions.

Tarangire National Park

In Tarangire National Park, baobabs dwarf the herds of elephants that feed beneath them. Tarangire offers rugged landscape, a unique safari backdrop with rolling grasslands, vibrant swamp land and forests of enigmatic baobab trees, which according to legend were planted “upside down” for growing too tall and proud. During the dry season thousands of animals can be seen migrating to the park from Manyara National Park.

Lake Manyara

Lake Manyara National Park well known for the tree climbing lions, the soda ash lake that attracts thousands and pink flamingos, one of Tanzania’s biggest elephant population, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, warthogs, abundant birdlife, and breathtaking scenery. Viewing a pride of lions relaxing in an acacia tree is a remarkable sight. Why these lions habitually climb trees is still up for debate.

Selous Game Reserve

The Selous Game Reserve is the largest protected game reserve on the African continent covering an area of 21,000 square miles, comprised of a vast wilderness with forests, grassy plains, mountains, and open woodlands. It was declared a UNESCO world heritage site thanks to its rich diversity of wildlife and uninterrupted nature. There are vast populations of buffalo, lion, wildebeest and large herds of giraffe, zebra, hippo, large numbers of waterbucks in addition to leopards, crocodiles, and hyenas.

Stone Town, Zanzibar Island

Stone Town is the oldest part of Zanzibar city which is rich in history and culture with winding alleyways, bustling bazaars, mosques, and Arab styles houses. In Zanzibar white sand 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.
