Tanzania is East Africa's leading wildlife safari and beach holidaydestination and offers a variety of different safaris, from extraordinary wildlife and migration safaris in the Serengeti and Selous to the more adventurous and less busy Parks of southern and western Tanzania.
Tanzania is home to some of the most breathtaking wildlife viewing and tracking in Africa if not the world. A Serengeti wildlife safari or exploration of the Ngorongoro Crater offer the wildlife enthusiast an up close and personal wildlife experience with the chance of seeing the Big Five in their natural environment. 25% of the country is protectedby national parks which are estimated to support approximately 20% of Africa's mammal population playing host to one of the most spectacular wildlife experiences, the wildebeest migration! With over 1,130 bird species and more being discovered annually, Tanzania also has the second largest diversity of bird species recorded after the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Tourism infrastructure in Tanzania is ahead of most African nations with good roads, an excellent and wide variety of accommodation from mobile tented camps to luxury lodges. A good start for a Tanzania safari can start with a 4 to 5 day journey to one of the best parks in Tanzania. But the most common and most dramatic itinerary takes approximately 10 days and takes in such highlights as the savanna game of the Serengeti National Park, the breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater and the pristine beaches of Zanzibar Island...Aside from this there are a number of other rarely visited but equally stunning wildlife wilderness destinations such as Katavi National Park and the Mahale Mountains which are home to habituated chimpanzees.

Nowadays the choice of safaris and different types of accommodation in Tanzania are too vast to cover in a website; from mobile tented camps to luxury eco-lodges the choice is remarkable. Budget to luxury the choice is endless.
