As the first Tanzanian safaris were in the North, this apt name ‘Northern Circuit’ is still the most famous of the safari destinations. The Ngorongoro Crater and the Rift Valley’s Lake Manyara are names that most experienced safari enthusiasts will recognize, whilst the Serengeti’s great migration is one of the world’s great wildlife spectacles! In the northern circuit, the choice is varied. The main parks here are relatively close together, and so private-guided safaris are popular and work well. A great choice for small groups and families and the obvious choice when small groups are travelling together. Here it is possible to travel by 4×4 and light aircraft but a great view of the local village life and territory is offered if one travels by car.
These camps are more commonly visited on light aircraft, fly-in safaris and are located in the remote parts of southern and western Tanzania. By flying it allows quick access to the most remote camps and scheduled aircraft run frequently. Once at the camps, their own guides will use 4×4 Drives and boats to transport guests around the parks. Spectacular game spotting and extremely interesting landscapes make this an amazing destination for honeymooners or small groups.
Zanzibar Archipelago (Stone Town)
Zanzibar’s ‘Stone Town’ and beaches offer guests the opportunity for an educational combination of both sea and cultural experiences. The flawless beaches capture visitors and guests are encouraged to take advantage of the snorkeling and diving adventures – as one of Tanzania’s fundamental attractions. A cluster of smaller islands can be found of the shore of Zanzibar for an even more private experience, and perfect for any guests interesting in sailing.
It takes roughly 2 hours to travel from North Zanzibar to the South, and to the East are the most breathtaking white sand beaches with clear blue waters. The West and Southern regions of Zanzibar are full of culture and flavour – including the international and local spice trade.
We have very particular safaris in mind when we do a Tanzanian itinerary and work closely with well established and revered safari operators. Tanzania has been truly blessed with the most astonishing panoramas of seemingly endless plains. Also mentionable is the imposing Mt Kilimanjaro. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa reaching 5895-meter altitudes.
