Our Luxury Tanzania Safaris
Thousands of people head to Tanzania every year for a luxury safari and, home to the great migration, one of the natural wonders of the world, and the largest lion population in the world, it’s obvious why. With a variety of protected national parks, conservation projects, and ranger/guide training programmes, Tanzania is one of the most authentic safari experiences in Africa. The national parks are not fenced or gated and the animals are completely wild, free to roam wherever they choose.
Although there are so many options of where to go and what to do in Tanzania, we are here to guide, recommend a curate a luxury Tanzania safari that is perfect for you. If it’s your first safari, the northern parks of Tanzania combining the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Park are great options as they have reliable wildlife sightings year round.
For honeymoon couples looking to to book a luxury Tanzania safari, the southern parks are worth serious consideration. Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park offer fantastic wildlife sightings (particularly wild dog and lion prides) but without the crowds that the northern parks attract. These parks are also good for shorter safari experiences as you can take a short 30-minute flight from Dar es Salaam into the Selous, enjoy 3 days on safari and then fly over to Zanzibar.
Tanzania is a great destination for twin-center luxury trips. You can easily combine a safari with a beach destination and our example itineraries give a couple of examples – such as Serengeti and Zanzibar, and the Selous and Mafia Island. This combination really is hard to compete with across other African countries, and with good accessibility and internal flight routings, Tanzania does it seamlessly.

Tanzania Safari Q&A
Gemma our Safari Specialist
Which Tanzania safari is best for me?
The best way I can answer this question is to have a chat on the phone, discussing what sort of experience you are after, what accommodation would suit you, and how much you’d like to spend. We have put together some example itineraries and tours to give you some inspiration but we would love to hear from you so that we can handpick safari camps, guides and activities for your luxury safari.
How long should I go on safari for?
The answer to this is subjective but, as a guideline, I would recommend a safari between 3-6 nights is a sufficient amount of time. I would always recommend a minimum of 3 nights on safari in one lodge or camp. This gives you enough time to experience fantastic wildlife sightings, but also get to know the staff, managers and your safari guide who will ultimately become a friend. If you have traveled on safari before, you will know what a safari is like so we would recommend longer periods of time.
What is a typical day on safari like?
A safari is unlike any other holiday as you are usually up every morning around 5.30am. Although this sounds quite intense, your wake up call is very inviting – as a hot cup of tea or coffee is brought to you in your safari tent and served to you in bed. You will head out on your morning game drive around 6.30am, as the sun is rising. The reason for the early morning starts is that the wildlife is at its most active, so you get the best interactions and sightings. You will return to camp for the middle of the day, to enjoy lunch, a swim or a siesta, before heading out on an afternoon game drive around 4pm. On average, a luxury Tanzania safari will include around 7-8 hours on safari.
How much is a luxury safari in Tanzania?
The answer to this completely depends on what time of year you go, how long you spend on safari and which accommodation you stay in. As a guideline, you could do a short safari and beach combination for £3-4,000 per person. For a longer safari, especially in the peak season of July to October, a luxury Tanzania safari would be around the £5,000 per person mark. For those who would like to stay in the most luxurious properties and camps, you could be looking at anywhere from £7-8,000 per person. Read our blog of how much safaris cost here.
