From the great migration to an exotic island escape. If the thought of a safari-beach combo gets your heart racing, look no further than Tanzania. Home to the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park, visitors can look forward to two uniquely different safari experiences.

Serengeti National Park

Recommended Lodges

To witness millions of wildebeest and other herbivores — with an entourage of predators in tow — is a breathtaking experience. The annual ‘Great Migration’ is a year-round cycle across the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, where over 1.5 million wildebeest, 400,000 zebra, 300,000 gazelle and 12,000 eland move through the landscape in search of greener pastures.

Ngorongoro Crater & Surrounds

Recommended Lodges

The Ngorongoro Crater in Northern Tanzania, once a gigantic volcano, is the largest intact caldera in the world. Today, long since having collapsed and eroded, it is an extensive highland area with the famous 600 m deep Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point. Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth.

Zanzibar & Surrounds

Recommended Lodges

The Zanzibar Archipelago is renowned for white sandy beaches and a plethora of underwater inhabitants. Also known as the ‘Spice Islands’, guests can expect a vibrant food scene with local spices grown on Zanzibar’s many plantations. Winter is peak season (May – September ~ 19°C/66°F Max: 25°C/77°F), with warm temperatures and low rainfall, but guests can look forward to sunshine all year long.
