Tanzania – From the sweeping plains of the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater in the north, Tanzania still retains its combined charm of the wilderness and idyllic coastal beaches. Home to Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain that needs no introduction, and looms proudly with brightly snow-capped peaks. The alluring spice island of Zanzibar tantalizes with turquoise warm waters, while sun and sand kiss its long stretching beaches. Tanzania also has a dozen UNESCO heritage sites, enhancing the kaleidoscopic diversity of Tanzania, making it an all-year-round holiday choice for new or even seasoned travelers. For whatever thoughts about Tanzania, we can assure you that the land of Mount Kilimanjaro is indeed a destination like no other in Africa.
Apart from pristine beaches and quaint islands Tanzania is renowned for its access to unlimited wildlife experiences all year-round, this isn’t actually the only reason for you to consider visiting Tanzania.
Home to some of the world’s most diverse wildlife, Tanzania is certainly an iconic safari destination. Arguably best known for the incredible landscapes of Serengeti National Park especially during the endless wildebeest migration. To be honest, there’s so much more to see in this fascinating country.
Discovering Ngorongoro Crater certainly took our breath away. Created by a large volcano which exploded and collapsed up to three million years ago, this jaw-dropping site has its own ecosystem, and needs to be seen to be believed – it’s awesomely mind-blowing. We know just how incredible spotting your first wild animal is, so our experts truly recommend exploring the Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks for first timers in Tanzania. Both parks are teeming with majestic wildlife, and even elegant bright pink flamingo in the latter. Oluokos Signature will endeavor to keep you away from the masses, steering you towards the best times of year and selecting secluded conservancies to ensure you get an authentic, natural safari experience, yet still exploring the best this country has to offer.
Oluokos Signature bespoke safaris are made for you.
This means that as much as the traditiaonal tourist routes could be difficult to get away from we sometimes mean well by taking you off the beaten track too, heading to the little-visited Selous Game Reserve, Ruaha National Park and Katavi National Park, where the vast landscapes are far less crowded, and the safaris are much more bespoke. Oluokos Signature have had enough fair share of these types of adventure; and those where you feel like you’re the only person for miles are by far the best. Our experts, partners and suppliers have a myriad of luxurious lodges, fascinating experiences, and wonderful natural attractions under their belt, and they’d love to share their passion and knowledge with you.
Included beach sta extensions.
Of course we’re safari enthusiasts here at Oluokos Signature, but we know your holiday needs a bit of a twist here and there. Beach relaxation – which is why Tanzania is one of our top hand-picked destinations. Not only can you embark on wildlife spotting journeys, but you can visit Mount Kilimanjaro or relax on the beautiful stretches of coastline here, too. With the tranquil, sugary sand islands of Zanzibar, Mafia Island and Pemba Island only a short flight away, this African country offers the ultimate bush to beach holiday.
Naturally, East Africa’s iconic landscapes are all part of your safari in Tanzania. A dazzling millions of wildebeest stream across and beyond the Serengeti plains in search of pasture and water in the neighboring wildlife conservancies, the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro stands as the roof of Africa and the perfect volcanic caldera of the Ngorongoro Crater where, in the surrounding Ngorongoro Conservation Area, huge concentrations of game co-exist in harmony with nomadic Masai herdsmen.
Other highlights on a Tanzania wildlife safari include the smaller national parks such as Tarangire and Manyara in the north, which have an addictive, charm all of their own, and Mahale where populations of chimps swing from one bust to another and shriek in the forest cover on the shores of the world’s deepest water body, Lake Tanganyika. If you would choose to safari in Tanzania away from the masses, we will help you venture further south to the remote Selous Game Reserve, flanking the little charted waters of the mighty Rufiji River, or the national parks of Katavi or Ruaha, where you will rarely see another vehicle and big game outnumbers visitors many times for the best part of the year.
Away from the wilderness, just before the end of your Tanzania safari you can fly to the idyllic offshore tropical islands of Zanzibar, Mnemba or Mafia, where unbeatable white sandy beaches and tropical coral reefs take centre stage in the Indian Ocean offer incredible beach destinations from where you can relax after your safari.
Big Cats and wildlife: Believe us, it’s only a few places in Africa that can offer the density of big cats alongside other wildlife in the great Serengeti National Park.
