Thousands of people flock to Tanzania every year for a safari holiday. With some of the best national parks in the world, you have your pick of the litter when it comes to safari locations.

Waterfalls, lakes, wildebeest, and zebras – Tanzania has a lot of things to see. And a safari is the best way to see all these fantastic attractions. So if you visit Tanzania, make sure to go on a safari tour. Maybe you’ll come face to face with a herd of friendly elephants on one of these Tanzania safari vacations.

  • See the massive annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, and many birds if you go at the right time

Know before you book:

Wildebeest going on the great migration Great Migration

You will have the opportunity to travel through the Serengeti and see the fantastic wildlife. Wildebeest are everywhere, and they’re so fascinating to watch. You can also see the Big Five, giraffes, and elands. If you look close enough, you may even spot the rare black rhino.

Another breathtaking sight is the Ngorongoro Crater, where the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is located. Formed two and a half million years ago when a volcano erupted and collapsed into itself, it’s thought to have a similar size to Mount Kilimanjaro.

Approximately 40,000 people live in the area, which they share with an array of wildlife. It’s one of the best places to catch views of the black rhino and black-maned male lions.

Must-haves for Luxury Tanzania Safari Tours:

  • Comfortable clothes
  • Bug spray (we cannot stress this enough)
  • Water
  • Sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen

There are many different wildlife and national parks where you can enjoy one of the greatest Tanzania luxury safaris. Mount Kilimanjaro itself has some lovely sights and beautiful animals. You can also visit Tarangire National Park, an outstanding birding destination for avid bird watchers.

Lake Manyara National Park has unique tree-climbing lions, which is a truly unmissable sight. You’ll also find pink flamingos and different types of waterfowl near the lake.

Luxury Tanzania Safari Tour Tickets 2022

Luxury Tanzania safari tour tickets can range from $2,000 to $5,000 for the entire trip. Factors that influence this include the trip duration, accommodation, and included extras.


There are no specific times to go on a safari as it depends on the national parks’ operating hours. Most will open their gates at 6 am and close at 6 pm. We do not recommend entering the gates after 3 pm, though, if you want to make it to your lodging before it is dark.

Best Time to Go on a Luxury Safari | Tanzania Tours

The dry season (between June and August) is the best time to go on a safari in Tanzania as animals tend to move out of view during the wetter months. You will see most animals around the watering holes during this time.

However, if you want to see the Great Migration, you will need to go in May or July, when the wildebeest get ready for their trek. For more information, take a look at our guide on the best time for Tanzania safaris.

Here is a layout of the best times to go on Tanzania luxury tours:

  • Time of Year: June to August for the best weather and to see the most animals; May or July for the Great Migration.
  • Time of Week: Weekdays would be the best time to go, as there usually aren’t many people on safari tours during the week
  • Time of Day: It’s better to start your safari as early as possible to maximize the time you’ll have to see the animals.
