Tanzania Travel Tips

Tanzania is an East African country known for its vast wilderness areas, including the plains of Serengeti National Park, a safari mecca populated by the “big five” game. Known for its massive annual migration of wildebeest and zebra, Serengeti National Park is the seasonal home to animals seeking green pasture, many crossing the marshy western corridor’s crocodile-infested Grumeti River. Black rhinos inhabit the granite outcrops of the Moru Kopjes. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a protected area and a World Heritage Site named after Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera. The area is also home to the famous Oldupai (or Olduvai) Gorge. Considered to be the seat of humanity after excavations by the famous anthropological couple, Mary and Louise Leaky, unearthed of the earliest known specimens of the human genus. Visit Lake Manyara, said by Ernest Hemingway to be the "loveliest [lake] ... in Africa," it is also the home of a diverse set of landscapes and wildlife. Discover game in Tarangire National Park past battalions of baobab trees, scouting for vast herds of elephants. Much like Kenya, Tanzania is thought to have a lovely climate, with sunny, dry days and daytime temperatures between 68°F and 77°F. If you’re interested in game-plan to go during the driest seasons (May–September, January, and February) because the lack of surface water urges game to congregate en masse at water holes.
