Wildlife Safaris & Best National Parks in Tanzania

There are 22 National Parks in Tanzania and several protected areas. But which are best to visit especially if you are planning a first time trip to Eastern Africa?

Tanzania is one of the best safari destinations in the world and one of the most famous destinations is the Serengeti National Park. This is where the annual wildebeest migration takes place when more than a million wildebeest are joined by over 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Gazelle takes place every year from late December to June. 

The Serengeti has an abundance of wildlife and nature spots and the annual wildlife migration is one of the main reasons people visit Tanzania. 

A trip to the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater is also a must, this is described as the eighth wonder of the world and is where there is 600m deep and over 10 miles wide crater which is perfect to go wildlife watching.

The Selous National Park is also recommended, this is the biggest wildlife sanctuary in East Africa and the many other parks dotted around the country. The big 5 are to be found in abundance here with Serengeti reputed to have the highest density of lions in any park.

Tarangire is famous for elephants and tree climbing pythons while Lake Manyara is famous for its tree climbing lions whilst you can also go trekking to see wild chimpanzees in the Gombe Stream and Mahale National Parks, this is where one of the biggest concentrations of chimps in the world live.

Other places to consider include the Arusha National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, Mount Kilimanjaro National Park and the Ruaha National Park.



The spice islands of Zanzibar, Unguja and Pemba are famous as some of the world’s best beaches. Here you can enjoy long stretches of un-spoilt sandy white beaches from modern resorts there. Search Zanzibar tours to find your perfect trip.


Mount Kilimanjiro Tours

Kilimanjaro tours

If you are seeking a more active break consider a trek to climb Africa's highest mountain Mount Kilimanjaro which is over 5,000m tall! It might sounds a scary prospect but it is not impossible, there are plenty of safe guided tours and treks and if you have a moderate level of health and fitness you will be able to join a climbing trip.

There are lots of different tours available, we recommend a steady longer 5-10 day trek so you can aclimatize to the altitude. Seeing the sunrise from the top is a magical experience which not many people have seen but iIf this experience doesn't appeal to you could you just visit the base camp and admire the views.

  • Machame Route
  • Lemosho Route
  • Marangu Route

"I was researching Africa group tours and decided to climb Kilimanjaro for 7 days. This was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. From the moment I met with Yesaya and Enock to discuss the climb to the very sad farewell at the end of the trip, my operator went above and beyond to make me feel like a part of their family. If you are thinking about joining a Kilimanjaro trek I 100% recommend Impatiens Tours Tanzania" - Dani, United States
