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
Having Zul as tour leader and guide was an asset, his knowledge of birds and wildlife made the holiday so enjoyable. He ensured that the entire group saw whatever had been spotted. His sense of humour made it all the better. We saw so many beautiful sightings. I had tears in my eyes seeing and hearing a mother Cheetah calling her young baby - eventually she went to find her baby and brought it to the kill. Magical. Edward and Roman from Ranger Safaris were marvellous drivers and guides. We nick-named Edward Eagle-eyes, always with an eye open to tell us of a bird or animal that we could easily have missed as they are well camouflaged. My friend and I both say it was one of our best holidays for birds and animals. The group that we were with seemed to get on well together. It was a really memorable holiday: I would love to go again. I am sure that my friend and travelling companion S.J. sends her thanks and best wishes too.
I thought the trip leader and drivers were exceptional with both their knowledge and professionalism making sure everyone got the best out of the trip.
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.
