Tanzania safari, tours and holidays.
Tanzania A true wilderness. Over a quarter of this magnificent country is dedicated to incredibly wild and beautiful national parks and reserves is East Africa at its best.Tanzania is a land of superlatives: the deepest, the highest, the largest, and the oldest. Tarangire, Manyara, Ngorongoro, Serengeti and Loliondo, which make up the famed “Northern Circuit”, tempt you with a million-strong Wildebeest migration, a huge volcanic caldera, a flamingo rimmed lake, rhino, buffalo, black-maned tree-climbing Lions and elephant bathing in rivers. Experience the Ngorongoro Crater, a unique ecosystem isolated from the rolling savannahs that surround it. Experience all of this with our exclusive luxury Tanzania safari holidays!
Africa's highest Mountain: Dominated by Kilimanjaro: one of the world’s most massive extinct volcano’s and Africa’s highest mountain, it soars some 15,000 feet above the surrounding arid plains, and 2.5 square miles of its surface ascend to over 18,500 feet. Beneath its ice dome, snow extends down long gullies that have been eroded in the mountainsides. Kilimanjaro’s summit crater, known as Kibo, measures an incredible 1.5 miles across. The highest point on Kibo’s steep rim is Uhuru, the highest peak in Africa. Nestled in the center of Kibo is a smaller crater, 600-feet deep in sulfurous ashes
Incredible Tanzania Wildlife Safari: Tanzania is home to 35 species of antelope and over 1.5 million wildebeest – over 80% of the total population in Africa…. Famous parks such as the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area offer some of the best safari opportunities in Africa. The Serengeti plains alone support over 3 million animals whilst the Ngorongoro Crater hosts the greatest concentration of large mammals in Africa on the floor of an extinct volcano, a natural refuge for big game. Whilst these two parks are the best known there are many others that offer more diverse opportunities for the more adventurous. Parks such as the Ruaha and Selous Reserve are huge and relatively untouched. The incredible wilderness of the Miombo woodlands in Southern Tanzania offers dramatically changing scenery and Tanzania signature safari. And the exotic lure of the islands: Pemba, Zanzibar – incredible ‘getaway’ destinations.
Migration Wildlife Safaris: The annual wildebeest migration starts with the birthing of the calves in the southern Serengeti. A dramatic spectacle as the herds press together and young calves are born hourly, encircled by their Big Cat and smaller predators. And so the cycle begins each February/March as the swollen numbers are forced to traverse the plains in search of fresh grazing, crossing the border into the neighbouring Maasai Mara as the dry season takes hold of the Serengeti in July – September. Origins Tanzania Wildlife Safaris offers incredibly flexible and targeted migration programmes. In the Serengeti we recommend a lightweight mobile camp – a self-sufficient base that can be moved regularly to follow the migratory pattern of the herds.
