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
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.
This is the 3rd successive trip we have taken with Naturetrek and each has been excellent in its own way. The holiday fulfilled our wish-list for wildlife so we were very happy with our choice. We really had an exceptional holiday and enjoyed wonderful scenery and wildlife - I am sure we will be using Naturetrek again in the near future!
Tanzania is a beautiful country in habituated by friendly, cheerful people who were always ready to help. The scenery was superb. The weather was excellent, the food and accommodation were all ‘A’ grade. Zul was an excellent tour leader who knew his subject well and was always ready to inform and guide us on our trips – he had a good sense of humour too! (great fun!). Our driver Yahaya was a very knowledgeable man who had the eyes of a hawk and was responsible for spotting wildlife long before anyone else. He was also a very good driver, a comforting thought when travelling on the off tarmac roads. I was inspired by the determination of the kids at school who were so keen to do well and the quality of the work I saw was so good…I could go on and on but I won’t! Jambo!
