In a world of tough choices, choosing the perfect African safari can be difficult, and even more so when choosing between Kenya and Tanzania. Both countries provide visitors with sensational scenery, spectacular game viewing, and different outlooks on the Great Wildebeest Migration.

Each offers the unique pleasures of African wildlife and famous landmarks. In Kenya, the most popular sites would be the Masai Mara for its abundance of wildlife scattered around the African savannah. Lake Nakuru, where flocks of flamingos come together, and Mt.Kenya being one of the tallest mountains on the continent.

Like Kenya, Tanzania is booming with wildlife and sites to see. The Serengeti National Park is considered one of the most famous parks in the world, and Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest inactive volcanic caldera. Also nearby the Ngorongoro Crater, you’ll find Mt. Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa.

Here is a breakdown list giving you a variety of different options and experiences to choose from, for families, couples, singles, and romantic honeymooners alike.

Highlights:

  • See native African wildlife
  • Get a true African Experience
  • Explore the African plains with a professional guide


Know before you book:

  • Bring along plenty of sunscreen
  • Wear comfortable clothes and closed shoes
  • Bring a sun hat

African Elephant

Both Tanzania and Kenya are East African countries along the warm Indian Ocean – both bursting with bustling African wildlife and Big 5 safari experiences. From rhinos and giraffes, elephants to zebras, leopards, lions, and cheetahs, these two countries are world-renowned for their wildlife!

As neighbors sharing a common border, both countries host the monumental Great Migration of the wildebeest. Annually the Great Migration follows the rains between the Masai Mara National Reserve on the Kenyan side and the Serengeti National Park on the Tanzanian side.

Together, these National parks form the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, one of the largest protected ecosystems on the planet, spanning over approximately 30 000 square km (12 000 square miles).

Kenya vs Tanzania Safari Prices

The cost of safari ticket prices starts from around $350 USD (R6, 540) to $1,920 USD (R35, 859) depending on the average person per night, sharing a room, high and low season, and the duration of your safari.

Compare the best prices and packages across the ticket providers below:

Safari Times

The duration and time of your safari will vary depending on what safari tour option and duration you opt to choose from. Whether you choose to go during peak season or low season.

Times also vary depending on whether guest pickups are offered, and the journey to and from your destination.

Best Time to go on a Safari

Like accommodation and affordability, the best time to go all depends on your personal preferences. If you go during the low or green season, prices will be much lower, and during the peak or high season, prices may increase. For both Tanzania and Kenyan safaris, traveling during peak season generally is between 30-40% more expensive.

Keep in mind, in the southern hemisphere, rainfall may be ‘early’ or ‘late,’ and the pattern of rain shapes the entire journey of the Great Wildebeest Migration.

In Tanzania and Kenya, ‘peak or high season’ is in July to October (winter), and ‘low or green season’ occurs from November to June.

Pst…In low season you won’t have to withstand the crowds and have clear snaps of wildlife!

Kenya Safari Options

Kenya consistently ranks as one of Africa’s most popular safari destinations – and for a good reason. With astonishing wildlife areas like the Masai Mara National Reserve and the site of the Great Wildebeest Migration.

    Wow, what an experience! Loved it! The flight on the tiny plane was so much fun, and landing in the middle of the Savannah with Giraffes watching us was great! The Eagle View lodge is beautiful, the staff super friendly and the Maasai Safari guides really knew where to find the best sights. We saw so many animals!
