Top tips for game viewing in Tanzania

Holiday makers who are looking to experience the vast array of wildlife that Africa has to offer would be hard pressed to outdo Tanzania travel. The country is host to a truly awesome variety of game and bird life, not to mention the local flora. With areas as famed as the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater, it becomes clear why Tanzania is considered one of the ‘must see’ African destinations. Many people have visited the country already and know where and when to go, but for those who have yet to make this wildlife pilgrimage we give you:

The where and when of Tanzania safaris

Northern Tanzania is packed full of safari hot spots such as the Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti Loliondo. Lake Manyara and the Arusha National Park are also more than worthy of mention and perhaps a little more quiet in peak travel seasons so as to offer you a little more seclusion, if that’s what you’re looking for. If we’re looking at the sheer volume and diversity of game then the Serengeti is a global contender for the top spot, and it could be argued that there is no better location for it.

All year round the wildlife abounds and the wildebeest migration is a major draw card, along with the amazing natural landscapes. If this catches your eye then try a Serengeti specific information search as the topic is well covered. Another major site for Tanzania tours is the Ngorongoro Crater which is forged from amazing landscapes and a high quality combination of game and birdlife, all contained within its own mini ecosystem. The floral life comes to full bloom during late April and May but the area does tend to be a bit chilled in June and July, so plan your trip accordingly.

If you’re considering a trip to the ever popular Piaya area of the Serengeti Loliondo, then you should take note of the time of year. The area is considered to be at its best from February through to early May and although this time is prone to sporadic rainfall, the abundance of life makes it well worth it. Bear your own schedule in mind but also consider what would be the most rewarding time for Tanzania travel.
