Tanzania Safaris Tour
Tanzania: Tanzania is characterized by vast, wide-open plains, and has one of the largest populations of wildlife in the world. Although Tanzania is an economically poor country, it boasts several attractions, including; Mount Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro crater, and the gateway to Zanzibar. These areas are designated as national parks and game reserves and have a reputation for being uncrowded and unspoilt. The magnificent collection of game sanctuaries to the north of the country, near the border with Kenya, is referred to as 'The Northern Circuit'. This is the most popular and accessible wildlife safari route in Tanzania. You can positively say that this is one of the finest game viewing areas anywhere in the world!
Wildebeest Migration: To view the ground-breaking movement of the migration please click here. The migration takes place between Kenya and Tanzania when hundreds of thousands of magnificent wildebeest move towards greener areas when the seasons change! As this is an unpredictable and natural event click through to our migration map to find out the monthly update.
History & Background: Tanzania was colonized by Germany in the 1880s and then fell under the control of the British after World War I. Little is known of the people who populated the region before then, except for the Masai warrior people, who had claimed part of the northern area of the country years earlier. The United Republic of Tanzania was officially formed in 1964. In 1995, the country held its first multi-party elections, and leaders have focused on economic reforms, such as financial aid and debt relief.
Scheduled and Tailor–Made Safaris: Tanzania is the new safari leader in Africa. Below you will find numerous small group (maximum of 10 clients) safaris that Jenman African Safaris runs in and around Tanzania. You can join one of our scheduled camping or lodge safaris or if you’d like, one of our experienced travel consultants can tailor–make a private safari to meet your departure date, time period, group size and budget. There is so much to choose from in Tanzania! You have the popular Northern circuit, you can climb Kilimanjaro, have a beach break on the Zanzibar island or explore the remote Southern Tanzanian parks.
Best Game Viewing and trekking Months: During June through to October the game viewing is excellent in Tanzania. The rains come in March to May with a second smaller rainy season in November and December when the game viewing isn’t as good. The Serengeti has excellent game viewing in September through to May and good game viewing in June through to August. In general Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro and Tarangire have excellent game viewing from July to March and then good game viewing in April to June. The best time for trekking Kilimanjaro is in the dry season from June to October when the rains have finished and, from late December to February. It’s important to note that even during dry season there is a chance of rain.
