Visit Tanzania for your choice of
game-viewing experiences

Tanzania has three different safari circuits: the popular northern safari circuit, the remote southern safari circuit, and the isolated Mahale Mountains in the west.

Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Park, the acclaimed UNESCO World Heritage site, is a magnet for safari seekers looking for a quick fix of the Big Five on the northern circuit.

Add a few days more to your holiday to visit Tarangire, Manyara and the Serengeti to complete a well-rounded safari in northern Tanzania.

The remote southern circuit, with safari areas in Selous and Ruaha, offers an off-the-beaten track safari experience. Get there if you can. It’s wild.

For the seasoned safari traveller, Mahale Mountains, western Tanzania, tops the wish list to get to one of the most isolated and beautiful places known to man. And to see the chimps, of course.
