Tanzania is a diverse and beautiful East African country known for its stunning landscapes, wildlife, and rich cultural heritage. Whether you’re interested in exploring wildlife in national parks, relaxing on pristine beaches, or experiencing vibrant local cultures, Tanzania has something to offer for every traveler.

Tanzania  is among the very best in Africa, one of the most popular choices with our guests, not least because it is a prime location for the classic ‘bush and beach’ trip combination. Tanzania is best known for safari in Serengeti and Ngorongoro, treks on Mount Kilimanjaro and the beaches of Zanzibar. It is a very cool country whose more famous locations make for an ideal and adventurous first safari, but which also contains an incredible array of lesser known and equally alluring locations which are crying out to be explored.

1. Visa and Entry Requirements:

Check the visa requirements for your nationality before traveling to Tanzania.
Ensure your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your planned departure date.

2. Best Time to Visit:

The dry season, from June to October, is the best time for wildlife safaris.
The wet season, from November to May, is ideal for birdwatching and lush landscapes.

3. Health and Safety:

Consult with a travel clinic for necessary vaccinations, including yellow fever.
Malaria is present in some regions, so take prophylaxis and use mosquito repellent.
Drink bottled or purified water to avoid waterborne diseases.

Plan your climb carefully, considering the different routes and acclimatization.
