TANZANIA SAFARI HOLIDAYS

The largest country in East Africa, Tanzania boasts a collection of some of Africa’s finest and most exclusive attractions. The evocative names of the attractions say it all – the mighty Serengeti (which, unsurprisingly, means ‘endless plains’), Kilimanjaro (the highest mountain on the continent), Lake Victoria (Africa’s largest lake), The Great Migration (the world’s most enthralling game viewing spectacle), the imitable Ngorongoro Crater and of course, the enchanting Zanzibar. All these attractions present a very strong case to why go on a Tanzania safari holiday.

WHY TURQUOISE HOLIDAYS LIKES TANZANIA

“Tanzania is the true spiritual home of the safari: from chimp trekking in the Mahale mountains above Lake Tanganyika, to the famous lions of the sweeping grasslands of the Serengeti, from the soaring heights of Mt. Kilimanjaro to remote Selous in the far south, Tanzania offers an awe-inspiring diversity of landscapes and experiences.

It is a country of superlatives – the second deepest lake in the world (Tanganyika), the highest mountain in Africa (Kilimanjaro), the largest National Park in Africa (Ruaha), and Africa’s finest selection of local beers (Serengeti, Safari, Kilimanjaro…..take your pick).” Jonty, Sales Director

WHERE AND WHY GO ON A TANZANIA SAFARI HOLIDAY

1. Tanzania’s Northern Parks were the first to introduce safaris – and for good reason. Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Mt Kilimanjaro are home to bucket list attractions such as ‘The Great Migration’, ‘Ngorongoro Crater’ and ‘Great Rift Valley’. Furthermore, the lesser known parks are not to be missed. Tarangire, known for its huge population of elephant & tree climbing lions, and Lake Manyara – home to over 400 species of bird – are truly worth visiting.

2. Tanzania’s Southern Parks – Selous & Ruaha - are newer ground. However, these two parks offer something quite unexpected. The Selous – the world’s largest game reserve, known for its enormous elephant herds – evokes romance, mystic and spiritual delight of the wild untouched and unspoiled. It is one of Africa’s best kept secrets and is also one of the few places where you can find perfect solitude. Ruaha, similarly, is beautifully raw; here you will have an entirely private experience, where you will feel like the explorer as you unveil Ruaha’s ‘jaw dropping’ views – great for seasoned safari goers.

3. Zanzibar - The safari beach combo allows you to enjoy stark contrast in perfect harmony, after all, once the safari dust has settled, it only seems natural that you should finish your safari on white sand beaches with crystal turquoise waters! East Africa has the ultimate safari beach unification, so enjoy post safari with rustic barefoot luxury knowing it is at its very best.
