Tanzania’s safari experience can be roughly divided into 4 broad categories: the most popular “northern circuit”, the very wild “southern circuit”, the remote and isolated “western circuit” and the spectacular Mt. Kilimanjaro climb.
The Northern Circuit: Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Manyara, Tarangire
Due to these parks popularity, ease of access and the famous wildebeest migration, the northern circuit parks tends to experience the highest tourist volumes, apart from Tarangire which is a little less traveled.
The Southern Circuit: Selous, Ruaha
These southern reserves are simply massive and largely under-utilized, offering absolutely fantastic wildlife viewing against a backdrop of true wilderness.
The Western Circuit: Katavi, Mahale
Truly remote and wild, these parks are definitely off the beaten path but offer exceptional game viewing opportunities away from the madding crowds. Mahale in the far west is a haven for chimpanzee viewing and an experience not to be missed!
Both the southern and western reserves are characterized by smaller more intimate camps, uncrowded spaces and exceptional game viewing, making them a gem waiting to be discovered by wildlife aficionados.
Mount Kilimanjaro offers possibly the most accessible climb in the world for the amateur climber. However at 5,895 meters (19,341 ft.) above sea level, don’t be fooled into thinking this is a walk in the park!

Beaches & Islands: Saadini, Zanzibar, Pemba, Mafia, Mnemba, Fanjove, Lazy Lagoon
Added to this great abundance are sun drenched beaches, with Zanzibar and a host of other tropical islands strung along Tanzania’s east coast bursting with culture and beauty simply waiting to be explored.
