Welcome To Tanzania Safari Lodges

The Tanzania Safari Lodges are amongst the most beautiful and exotic in the world.

Not only will you find luxury safari lodges and holiday packages to suit most budgets, but here in Tanzania we have arguably the best wildlife sightings in Africa.

Tanzania is the largest country in East Africa; almost one-third of its land is protected for wildlife conservation.

It’s not only home to world-famous safari destinations that attract many tourists, but also lesser-known reserves that feel wild and remote.

Tanzania is a serious safari lodge heavyweight being home to some of Africa’s most famous safari parks, including the Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Nyerere (The Selous), Lake Manyara, Arusha and beautiful Zanzibar Island.

Tanzania Safari Lodges does have it all – from the Great Migration in the Serengeti, to summiting Mount Kilimanjaro or simply relaxing on one of Zanzibar’s powdery-white beaches.

The Great Serengeti Migration in Tanzania:

The greatest wildlife showcase on earth!

Not many people might know this, but the great wildebeest migration goes on all year round in a cycle that is linked to the rainfall patterns.

Millions of animals are on the move – other herds on the move include zebra, eland, gazelle and impala.

All the herds are racing to keep up with where the rainfall is moving to, and where the fresh grazing will be growing.

Hardly any other safari destination on earth can offer a wildlife encounter to match the annual migration of Tanzania.

This awe-inspiring event is one of the last mass terrestrial animal movements left on the planet – the herds are so big they can be observed from space.

Serengeti National Park Safari Lodges:

Synonymous with safari, the Serengeti National Park is where to go in Tanzania for game viewing at its most dramatic.

Hosting the lion’s share of the Wildebeest Migration, the Serengeti’s sheer size, luxury safari lodges and camp, and year-round abundance of wildlife make it one of the best safari lodge destinations in Africa.

The River Crossings are seen in the northern Serengeti.

Your Serengeti safari usually starts at Kilimanjaro International Airport, just outside Arusha, from where you’ll catch a light aircraft flight.

The endless expanse of space, species diversity and ecosystem variety make this a once-in-a-lifetimebush Tanzania safari experience.

Activities in the Serengeti National Park include safari game drives, village tours, microlight flights and bushwalking safaris.

Serengeti National Park accommodation is offered at luxury Tanzania Safari Lodges.

Ngorongoro Crater Safari Lodges:

The Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is located in the Crater Highlands of Tanzania.

Millions of years ago, a volcano the size of Mount Kilimanjaro rose from the highlands of northern Tanzania.

Its eruption formed the largest unflooded caldera in the world, the Ngorongoro Crater.

Over the years, the fertility of the volcanic soil and year-round water supply has attracted one of the highest concentrations of game in Africa.

This superb Tanzania safari destination offers excellent game viewing in an unbelievably unique setting.

The Ngorongoro Crater is renowned for delivering the easiest and most reliable Big 5 sightings in East Africa and provides what is arguably the best safari lodges in Tanzania.

Lake Manyara National Park Safari Lodges:

Lake Manyara National Park is the smallest of the four parks that make up the northern circuit in Tanzania.

With a huge proportion of the park consisting of the lake itself, its famous tree-climbing lions seem to have gained almost mythical status.

Lake Manyara National Park is located at the bottom of the Great Rift Valley in northern Tanzania.

Located halfway between Tanzania’s safari capital, Arusha, and Ngorongoro Crater, Manyara is known for its natural beauty and (of course) the tree-climbing lions.

The park is home to a good range of heavyweight species, including buffalo, hippo, giraffe, elephant, leopard and lions.

Lake Manyara is an exceptional bird-watching destination.

You’ll often see flocks of pelicans and flamingos in the middle of the lake, and the floodplains, woodlands and evergreen forests are equally vibrant.

As well as enjoying game drives and walking safaris, you can visit the Maji Moto hot springs to soak in the warm, clear water under the shade of leafy trees.

Tarangire National Park Safari Lodges:

Tarangire National Park is in northern Tanzania, just south of Lake Manyara.

The Tarangire National Park is the lesser-known, quiet gem of the northern Tanzania safari circuit.

It is a favourite amongst Tanzania’s guides due to a migration of approximately 3000 elephants that peaks from July to November.

The park is formed around the Tarangire River, which is the water supply for the abundance of local wildlife.

The Tarangire National Park can be accessed by road or air transfers during a Tanzania Safari.

Tarangire’s most appealing charm is its lack of visitors and its sheer size.

There are only a few luxury safari lodges and camps in the Tarangire National Park, so book long in advance if you wish to include this area in your Tanzania Safari itinerary.

Nyerere National Park (The Selous) Safari Lodges:

Nyerere National Park (formerly The Selous) is Africa’s largest game reserve.

Larger than Switzerland and with just a handful of small safari camps, Nyerere National Park lies in southern Tanzania and affords travellers an exclusive and wild safari experience.

The Nyerere National Park is famous fir its boating safari, as well as being the finest destination in Tanzania for walking safaris.

The stunning backdrop of riverine and lush vegetation sets the scene for an unforgettable safari in Tanzania.

With such diversity, the landscape is home to an extraordinary number of mammals, including buffalo, zebra, elephant and an impressive giraffe population – and with lots of food around, predators are also well represented, including the infamous Selous lion with their unique pattern of day-time hunting.

The Nyerere National Park has some amazing luxury safari lodges and camps located in distinct areas of the park, some having won international awards.

There is a fantastic range of choice of luxury Tanzanian Safari Lodges and camps.

Safari lodges and camps tend to be small, boutique-style and operate to the highest eco-friendly standards.

Ruaha National Park Safari Lodges:

Ruaha National Park, in the centre of Tanzania, takes its name from the Hehe word for “river”.

The eponymous Great Ruaha River serves as a lifeline for the park’s wildlife.

Although Ruaha is one of the largest national parks in Tanzania and rich in wildlife, it’s one of the least busy places to visit, so your Tanzanian safari will feel remote and exclusive.

Only about 1% of visitors to Tanzania go on a Ruaha safari.

It is known as one of Tanzania’s best-kept secret safari spots, promising unhurried, uncrowded game viewing.

This fly-in destination offers off-the-beaten-track adventure, luxury, and excellent hospitality at beautiful riverside safari lodges and tented camps.

In the dry season, visitors can expect to see golden savannah, studded with baobabs and misty hills stretching along the horizon.

With the annual rains, the grasslands become a lush green and the baobabs bloom.

The Ruaha National Park has one of the highest concentrations of predators anywhere in Africa and a wonderfully wild character that is rare to find nowadays.

Mahale Mountains National Park Safari Lodges:

The Mahale Mountains National Park is Tanzania’s most remote national park.

Lying on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, these mountains rise into the clouds and have a very special wildlife experience – walking with chimpanzees.

Covered in lush jungle forests and speckled with sparkling streams and waterfalls, the Mahale Mountains are enchanting and home to a variety of mammals.

The park is home to approximately 1000 wild chimpanzees split across approximately 12 communities.

What you really need to know is that Mahale’s main safari lodges work on a minimum three or four-night stay – this is set in stone.

If at all possible, we recommend four nights as Mahale will probably be the most amazing place you have ever visited.

Mount Kilimanjaro Safari Lodges:

Looming proudly from the grassy plains of Northern Tanzania is Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak and the world’s tallest freestanding mountain at 5895m.

Thousands of tourists flock to Tanzania in an attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, so the area is not a secluded destination, but it is one of the finest and most popular.

Kilimanjaro is easy to climb with or without equipment, and many climbers easily reach the crater.

There’s much more to Kilimanjaro than the great volcanic mountain – the area inhabits spectacular species of wildlife including leopards, elephants, buffalo and more.

Accommodation around Mount Kilimanjaro is offered in the form of mountain lodges.

Katavi National Park Safari Lodges:

The Katavi National Park is the safari park for the safari connoisseurs in Tanzania.

Located next to the Mahale Mountains in Western Tanzania, Katavi National Park is far off the main tourist circuit, receiving only a handful of guests each year.

This relatively unknown park deep in western Tanzania is a hotspot for mammal viewing and herds of buffalo, sometimes 3000 strong, attract many predators to the area.

There are no luxury safari lodges here – just a couple of no-frills serious safari camps where the safari is the only talk at the table.

Arusha Safari Lodges:

The undisputed safari capital of Tanzania, Arusha is on the safari lodge itinerary of virtually anyone visiting the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara, as logistics often dictate an overnight layover in or around the city.

Arriving by air into Arusha is a memorable one, as you are greeted with expansive views from above, of Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru, the Blue Mountains, and the Maasai Plains.

Arusha is an excellent starting point for your Tanzania Safari.

Dar es Salaam:

Dar es Salaam is Tanzania’s largest city, a cultural melting pot and the country’s economic centre.

No longer the quaint fishing village of yesteryear, Dar es Salaam is home to 4 million people and is the administrative capital of Tanzania.

Most visitors to Dar es Salaam are on their way to Zanzibar or the Indian Ocean Coast, but this thriving city provides easy access to Tanzania’s lesser-known reserves such as Selous.

Dar, as it’s commonly known, is a blend of Swahili, European, Arab, and Indian influences, found no more so than in its culinary scene.

Flavoursome curries, street-side barbecues, pasta, pizza, and hauls of fresh seafood are all readily available throughout the city.

In Dar es Salaam you can visit museums, admire art galleries or wander through the lush botanical gardens.

Zanzibar Resorts and Lodges:

Crown your Tanzania Safari experience with a luxury beach holiday on the spice island – Zanzibar!

Zanzibar is everything you imagine of an Indian Ocean Island – mile upon mile of beautiful beaches lined with palm trees and turquoise waters.

You can spend your days snorkelling and diving among coral reefs, sailing on a traditional dhow and absorbing the Swahili culture.

Stone Town, the capital, is a bustling and unique town with thin cobbled streets and thousands of vendors selling everything from fabrics to tasty food.

Zanzibar Island is located less than 20 minutes flight from mainland Tanzania.
