Safari tips you can trust
Tanzania safari areas
Among the world's several dozen safari destinations, the Serengeti ranks first, thanks to its wildlife migration.
As one of the world's top safari destinations, the Ngorongoro Crater is a must experience.
This large game reserve is tranquil and laced with serene woodlands and lakes. You can take a vehicular, walking or boating safari - or combine all three. Like Ruaha, Selous is never crowded.
This national park is known for its birding and tree-climbing lions. Its other wildlife includes leopards, elephants and giraffes. The lakeside environment is peaceful and relaxing.
The water supply is year-round in this scenic national park. This draws big game for other reserves during their dry periods. As with Lake Manyara, Tarangire is restful and is superb for birding.
Ruaha National Park
Being off-the-beaten-track, it assures a low-visitor count and a strong sense of wilderness. The Great Ruaha River runs through it, creating first-rate game viewing and birding.
