Safari in Tanzania

A safari in Tanzania, which is one of the most visited countries in all of Africa, will astound you. From the annual great migration on the Serengeti plains, the breathtaking descent and time spent in Ngorongoro Crater, the mighty Ruaha and Rufiji Rivers in the south full of crocodiles and hippos, lush tropical rain forests to the west inhabited by chimpanzees, and the exotic spice filled islands in the Indian Ocean, a safari in Tanzania offers a panacea of exciting and unique travel opportunities.
A safari in Tanzania encompasses several distinctive regions, or circuits. A safari (Swahili for “journey”) in Tanzania promises travelers some of the most spectacular experiences in Africa! The knowledgeable and accommodating staff of Wilderness Legends Africa is ready to transport you into a world of lush and expansive landscapes, extraordinary and intriguing animal life, and colorful, distinctive tribal cultures, such as the very distinctive Maasai people

“There is something about safari life that makes you forget all your sorrows and feel as if you had drunk half a bottle of champagne — bubbling over with heartfelt gratitude for being alive.”
-Karen Blixen
There is so much to explore during a safari in Tanzania. We’ve broken it down into several destinations to help you with your planning. First time safari goers often focus on the Northern Circuit, visiting several of the iconic parks including the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, typically followed by several days of rest and relaxation on beautiful Zanzibar.
We have many clients that have traveled with us on four and five safari trips. If you’re up for a new adventure after having explored the northern circuit, we will put together that next epic journey, heading into the far corners of a safari inTanzania and exploring truly wild areas where you may not see another vehicle out in the bush all day. These excursions are far off the beaten track, and you will come away with an even deeper connection with Tanzania after immersing yourself in these vast and remote areas. Get acquainted with some of those areas below, and let us know when you’re ready to start planning!
