Visit the Maasai

A visit to Amini Lodge, where you will see members of one of the most spectacular tribes in Africa, the Maasai, is a fantastic way to start any Tanzanian vacation. The Lodge, which was constructed according to tradition, is a cultural village that strives to exhibit visitors the Maasai way of life without interfering with private villages. When you arrive, Maasai community members will greet you warmly and explain everything about the area, including the ecosystem, hunting methods, and traditional medical practices. We advise you to stay here for one or two nights at the start of your vacation, in this idyllic location in the heart of Tanzania.

The Northern Circuit of Safari

The Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire, and Lake Manyara national parks are all part of Tanzania’s Northern Safari Circuit. These parks have evolved into the more recognizable safari locations in Tanzania over time.

Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti is the most famous safari location on Earth and something you just must experience if visiting Tanzania. The Serengeti supports about 3 million creatures, the greatest assemblage of its kind on earth, including over 5000 large predators and over 70 distinct kinds of mammals. It is the location of the well-known Great Migration, which involves approximately 2 million herbivores moving continuously in search of grass and water while being stalked and pursued by their predators. 1.5 million wildebeest, 300,000 zebras, 500,000 gazelles, and antelopes are all part of the migration. Due to the park’s diversified habitat, birdwatchers can view more than 500 different species here. The black rhinoceros, elephant, wild dog, and cheetah are four more internationally threatened and endangered animal species that can be seen by visitors.  There are lodging options for every budget in the park, including lodges and campgrounds. You’ll spend the majority of the day driving about on different game drive circuits that follow rivers, streams, and other wildlife hotspots. Due to its size and diversity, the Serengeti should be explored over the course of several days when on a safari in Tanzania.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Geological formations and breathtaking views abound at Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It offers the most dramatic scenery for your Tanzanian safari, ranging from soda lakes and savannah grass plains in the lower habitats to montane forest and volcanic volcanoes higher up. The Ngorongoro Crater, a caldera created by a volcanic eruption, is the area’s most well-known attraction. The 18km-diameter Crater has walls with an average vertical drop of 700m. It is home to 25000 animals and provides the extremely unusual chance to witness the critically endangered black rhino. Visitors frequently flock to the Crater to see the “Big Five” — the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and buffalo — as it has the highest number of lions in all of Africa. The safari guide will drive your safari vehicle into the crater floor where you will spend the entire day looking for wildlife near the lake, little forest, and several springs that feed into swampland. You will ascend out of the crater in the evening following a fulfilling day spent observing wildlife.

Lake Manyara National Park

One of Tanzania’s smaller parks, Lake Manyara is unquestionably one of its most stunning.  This is typically one among the first national parks visited on safaris in Tanzania. The park’s entry is exceptionally lush, with tall hardwood trees, a dense understory, and shrubs. Perennial springs that meander through the forest before eventually reaching the lake supply the woodland with water. This diversity of environment is reflected in the rich and numerous species, which ranges from the dense ground water forest at the park entry to the parched acacia woodland in the southern part of the park. On a Tanzanian safari, Lake Manyara is one of the greatest places to see elephants, and close encounters with them are frequent.

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park, one of Tanzania’s premier safari sites, offers some of the best opportunities for seeing elephants and having close contact with them. The Tarangire River, a perennial river that ensures water supplies throughout the year, dominates the park. One of the highest populations of African elephants may be found in the game park. Elephant herds frequently come and go from the river, providing visitors with excellent opportunities to observe the herds as they interact and mingle. In addition to elephants, the park is home to several herbivores, including buffalo, wildebeest, zebras, and different types of gazelles. Additionally, the park is home to a sizable population of predators, including as lions, leopards, cheetahs, and hyenas.  Any safari trip to Tanzania would not be complete without seeing Tarangire, which has an abundance of wildlife and an iconic scenery dominated by baobab trees.

Relax on Zanzibar

You can round off your vacation with a stay on the island of Zanzibar after a safari in the northern part of Tanzania. The picturesque island off the coast of Tanzania offers crystal-clear water, snow-white beaches, and comfortable temperatures that range from 25 to 35 degrees Celsius. The ingredients for a tropical beach paradise are all present in Zanzibar, plus more.

In Stone Town, the ancient center, visitors can stroll through the winding lanes in search of culture and history. Discover the Old Fort, the busy bazaars, and the site of the ancient slave market. Take a spice tour to discover Zanzibar’s well-known spice plantations, or go on a dhow cruise to cruise the stunning Indian Ocean aboard a classic wooden dhow. You may visit an island that was once used to house slaves by taking a boat to Prison Island.

Giant tortoises that may weigh up to 250 kilos and are over 100 years old are now seen on the island. A dolphin trip will take you to the fishing village of Kizimkazi, which is home to many schools of dolphins, if you’re a nature lover. Additionally, Zanzibar is renowned for its magnificent coral reefs, incredible marine life, and unrivaled chances for scuba diving and snorkeling.
