Wildlife holidays in Tanzania
Tell me about Tanzania …
Tanzania is one of the oldest known continuously inhabited areas on Earth. Fossil remains of humans and pre-human hominids have been found dating back over two million years.
Tanzania has dozens of beautiful national parks like the world famous Serengeti and the Ngorongoro that generate income with a large tourism sector that plays a vital part in the economy.
Lake Victoria lies to the north and Lake Tanganyika to the west, while the centre comprises a large plateau. The imposing Mount Kilimanjaro is situated on the border with Kenya, and the eastern coast is hot and humid, with the island of Zanzibar lying offshore.

"I recommend our ‘Tanzania Highlights’ holiday, a 14-day birdwatching and mammal-viewing safari through the superb national parks of Arush, Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara and the Serengeti."Paul Stanbury
Whats special about its wildlife?
The magnificent game-laden lands of Africa are world famous, and some of the best of them are in Tanzania. Here, Lions and Cheetahs may still enjoy a meal free from the gaze of all-encircling tourist buses.
Tanzania is home to the largest concentrations of mammals anywhere in the world.
With a remarkable 26% of its area set aside for the preservation of its unique wildlife heritage, Tanzania offers such globally threatened species as the Black Rhinoceros a measure of protection that hopefully may save them from extinction.

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Tanzania HOLIDAYS
An excellent trip, with a first class leader and an excellent driver. We thought the itinerary was well planned to give a variety of habitats and species.
A superb tour which fully lived up to expectations. I saw 370 bird species and mammal sightings included 16 cheetahs, 10 Black Rhino, Lions galore and 1m+ Wildebeest. Timing of the tour was perfect, coinciding with incredible numbers of animals in the Southern Serengeti. The leaders were really excellent.
We believe Tony Williams is one of the best natural history tour leaders we have met. His knowledge of birds was extensive and he helped everyone to spot as many different species as possible...We greatly enjoyed seeing such a wide variety of mammals and birds in Tanzania and we intend in due course to travel again with Naturetrek.
