Africa / Tanzania

Volcanic peaks overlook vast plains crossed by a million migrating wildebeest, whilst off the coast lie the easy-going beach resorts of the legendary ‘island of spices’. Life in Tanzania moves with the seasons. As the Great Migration gets underway, take to the skies in a hot air balloon for a magical, slow moving view, watching the wildebeest spill over and swarm like ants across the Serengeti plains. A supporting cast of zebra and antelope joins the throng whilst the crocodiles wait patiently in rivers that have to be crossed in the push for pastures new. The astonishing Ngorongoro volcanic crater, the largest intact caldera in the world, is home to more abundant wildlife. Within its protective walls lies verdant vegetation that supports more than 25,000 animals including the rare black rhino – a safari destination without equal. Pink flamingos and tree-climbing lions lure visitors to Manyara National Park whilst in the south, Africa’s largest game reserve, the Selous, is filled with sparkling lagoons and riverine vegetation. And everywhere, beautiful secluded camps and residences – colonial farmsteads, enchanting cottages, luxuriant tree houses and lodges – with every desired comfort await to complete your luxury Tanzania holiday.

When is the best time to visit Tanzania?

Tanzania’s dry season is from June to October, with the short rains expected in November/December and the long rains from March to May. The migration follows the rains in a clockwise route through the Serengeti – from January to March the herds are mainly in the grassy south, calving in February before migrating north from April, traversing the Western Corridor and Grumeti Reserve throughout May, June and July, heading towards Kenya and the northern Serengeti. They return south again from November.
