Reasons To Go On Safari In Tanzania

Wondering where to go on a bucket list holiday in the future? Why not consider a Tanzanian safari? If you think this is a holiday you would be interested in finding out more about, then let's have a look at my reasons to go on a safari to Tanzania and why it will make special memories for you. This is an advertorial. 

Where is Tanzania?

Tanzania is a country in East Africa that is known for its wide-open spaces and is a popular safari destination. It has Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa as well as national parks, including seven UNESCO world heritage sites including three UNESCO national parks with an abundance of wildlife. These are Serengeti National Park, Selous Game Reserve and Kilimanjaro National Park.

How to get there

At the moment there are no flights direct to Tanzania due to the pandemic. Keep up to date with the FCO advice. In the future when it's safe to fly there flights may resume and you should also be able to go by changing flights. All British passport holders need a tourist or business visa to enter Tanzania.

It is perfect for nature lovers


The diversity of animals in Tanzania is amazing and going on a safari you will see animals including some of the big 5 - lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant. The most popular place to see these wonderful creatures are at the Serengeti National Park but you could also see them at the Ngorongoro Crater, and the vast Selous Game Reserve. Tanzania also has more than 1000 bird species as well as a large concentration of hippos, wild dogs and crocodiles at Selous game reserve.

It's a holiday that is unique and different

It's not a holiday lying on the beach or by the pool although some of the high-end hotels do have them, a safari in Tanzania is unique and different. You will be spending time in jeeps on a game drive, trying to track down the wildlife. It can be exciting when you catch a glimpse of the Big 5 and thrilling although brutal if you see an animal being hunted by another. 

If you are an animal lover it's the best


I've already covered the number of amazing animals in nature you can see but did you know Tanzania is home to the annual great migration from Serengeti National Park to Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, where over 2.5 million wildebeest and zebra migrate? This is some spectacle for sure. Getting close to nature on a safari can be a fantastic experience for an animal lover, you get to see animals you will never see in the UK, Europe and the USA, and such a better and more authentic experience than seeing these animals in a zoo. 

They offer a touch of luxury

A safari experience can offer wonderful luxury at places like the Four Seasons Serengeti where you can experience a luxurious tented experience. There are also lots of luxury resorts like the Hideaway of Nungwi and Ras Kutani. A stay on a top-end safari site can be all-inclusive to include all your food, drinks and a tour guide, so it's a good choice for a luxury holiday and one where you don't have to organise anything once you are there. Some tour guides can offer a personal service geared to you, if there are certain animals you want to see be sure they know.

You can learn a lot about wildlife

If you are planning a holiday for next year an exotic safari to Tanzania is an exciting option especially for nature lovers. The guides that come with an organised safari tour are very knowledgeable about the land, the animals and where they roam. Finding animals in the vast plains is a definite skill. Using their knowledge they will connect with other guides and spot animals so they can travel to them at a safe distance for you to see. They will impart their knowledge to you, so you will learn about them and their habitat. Also, local biologists can join your game drive in Serengeti while they collect and record data that is submitted to leading research and conservation organisations.

It's a once in a lifetime experience

Being so close to these magnificent animals is a once in a lifetime experience. A safari is certainly a holiday that is different from most people's vacations and one you can make wonderful memories on. 

Let me know, would you go on a holiday on safari to Tanzania in the future?
