Tanzania

Tanzania is located on the east coast of Africa and is a hugely popular destination given its vast, diverse wilderness and iconic landscapes.

Track chimpanzee in the Mahale Mountains or climb the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro;  observe the “Big 5” (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, elephant) on the plains of the Serengeti National Park, or marvel at the huge concentration of wildlife dotting the plains of the Ngorongoro Crater.   Witness the Great Migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra as they thunder across the Serengeti plains to greener pastures.

Combine your luxury safari holiday with an exploration of the exotic tropical islands of Zanzibar with their Arabic influences, turquoise waters and stunning coral reefs.

The dry season spans June to October and offers spectacular game-viewing almost everywhere.   By mid-November the rains arrive and totally transform the plains.   This is known as the green season, and lasts until March.   This time of year also offers excellent opportunities for bird-watching, with migratory birds arriving in the thousands.   January to February is the calving season, a superb time to visit and experience new-borns mastering their environment – while predators are not far away. April and May are the wettest months - this time of year is best avoided.
