Looking for the Best African Safari experience? Look no further than Tanzania!
For a traveler who is looking for the ultimate wildlife experience, along with a remarkable wilderness experience and an authentic cultural experience, Tanzania has got it all. Over 40% of the country has been set aside in parks, conservation areas, nature reserves, game reserves and game controlled areas. That is ten times the size of what is in Kenya. The wildebeest migration is in the Serengeti ecosystem for 10 months of the year. Even in August and September, many herds choose to remain in Northern Serengeti over Maasai Mara. In February, the wildebeest calving on the short grass plains of the Serengeti-Ngorongoro ecosystem is probably the most spectacular wildlife event on the planet. There are more than 125 tribes in Tanzania, and double that number if you count all the ethnic groups. The Maasai (nomads) and the Hadzabe (hunter-gatherers) are still largely living in their traditional ways in Northern Tanzania.
Tanzania boasts authentic African wilderness with unfenced national parks with dirt roads and endless plains. Ruaha National Park is the largest park in the world with 20% of all of Africa’s elephants. The Ngorongoro, with its unbroken caldera, is notably the most spectacular natural feature in Africa. Tarangire has the second largest migration in Africa – it is the best place to observe elephants in the wild, and it is noted for its large population of calves. Selous Game Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, remains one of the last wilderness experiences. With no permanent human habitation or permanent structures, its vast wilderness is unrivaled. The remote Katavi has over 40,000 hippopotamus. Mahale Mountains and Gombe offer the best chimpanzee tracking experience in Africa. The forest-swathed mountains of Udzungwa, known as the “Galapagos Islands of Africa”, are recognized for its remarkable biodiversity. Sadaani, containing one of the last coastal rain forests remaining in Tanzania, is a wildlife sanctuary bordering the Indian Ocean.
And how can we not mention Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar? What makes Tanzania such a great safari destination is that you can combine superb wildlife viewing with a mountain trek and a beach holiday.
