Tanzania Safari Highlights

Add this to wishlist

Tanzania is full of safari highlights and exceptional game areas, from the legendary Serengeti to the wild Selous Game Reserve.

The Northern Circuit wildlife destination of Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire is a timeless classic for the first-time safari holiday traveler and even a repeat traveler. Vision Adventure Safaris, strives to bring the travelers as closest as possible to be “amongst the great herds” and best game viewing areas depending on the time of the year and the rains – particularly in Serengeti National Park and Tarangire National Park. For this reason, with safaris that don’t have younger children, Vision Adventure Safaris, uses classic wilderness tented mobile camps in the Serengeti and Tarangire – these camps are seasonal and move depending on the animal migrations to be located in close proximity with the game.

The Southern Circuit which is made up of the untrammeled expanses of the Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha national park, with a clutch of intimate lodges, boat safaris and top-notch wildlife watching. Another draw is the long coastline. Here, the deserted white-sand beaches shimmer under an unrelenting sun, shoals of colourful fish filt past amazing coral formations in Tanzania’s two marine parks at mafia Island and Mnazi Bay.

Zanzibar Islands pristine white beaches surrounded by deep blue ocean, combine to make these islands the most intimate and ideal for a beach vacation on the Indian Ocean coastline. While the dazzling sands and brilliant sunshine invite you to spend idle hours on shore, magnificent coral reefs create an underwater wonderland that allures you to explore the warm, crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Scores of snorkeling and diving sites sites from a gateway to a world of incredible sea creatures.

Serengeti/ Masai Mara annual animal Migration. Depending on the time of the year and the rains it will determine where you will spend the most time. End of September – early November the migration enters the Serengeti at the north. Early November – mid-December and again end of May – June the herds are around the Seronera Area of Central Serengeti. Mid-December – May the herds are in the south around Lake Ndutu and Late May – early July they are on their way north through the western corridor.

Serengeti Explorer Style Mobile Safaris is all about experiencing Tanzania’s iconic game parks in private safari vehicles or on foot, and overnighting in the heart of the bush, in private sites in our “Explorer-style” mobile tented camp. The explorer style mobile safaris are the modern-day version of a ‘traditional’ safari – with a full safari crew going ahead of our guests to set up the camp.

Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing can be done at any time of the year, though during November and March/ April, it’s more likely that paths through the forest will be slippery, and that routes up to the summit. Overall the best time of the year to climb is during the dry season, from late June to October, and from late December to February or early march, just after the short rains and before the long rains.

Fly camping in the Selous in simple nets, comfortable bedrolls, good food, hot showers. Starry skies and miles of wilderness

Ngorongoro Crater in April and May when the flowers have started to bloom throughout the highlands and most other tourists have headed home. Its a time of sporadic rain but don't be frightened off by it, this is the time to game drive in the Crater and walk in the surrounding hills.

Katavi walking game and driving during the late dry season (September & October) when the harsh dryness forces the game to congregate close to the dwindling water sources. Whether it be thousands of buffalo, hundreds of hippo & elephant, crocodiles hiding away in riverbank caves or the brazen lion prides feeding off this plenty, this is a time of epic African game viewing.

Chimpanzee Trekking in Mahale Mountains on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. Based out of Greystoke camp and combined with fishing and snorkeling in the lake, this has to be one of the most spectacular wildlife experiences in Africa.
