Sometimes you need a trip to a European capital, the luxurious relaxation holiday of ethnic splendour or a vacation to an idyllic Caribbean Island.
But then there comes a time in your life when you need exhilaration, a wild experience and be a little bolder, If that time has come, then go zany with a private tour of Tanzania and go far on Safari.
Travel to Tanzania Game Parks to experience a Safari, dine with locals, scale the highest summit of Africa or swim among the coral reefs in the Indian Ocean.
Tanzania is the land of safaris more than almost any other country. There are plenty of wild and scary animals and exotic birds to be seen, from elephants on their seasonal migration route, chimpanzees swinging from tree to tree, giraffes gracefully gliding through the land to birds bringing song and colour.
There are many opportunities, when you are on a private guided tour, to get to know the Tanzanian people who are so welcoming and hospitable, happy to share their traditions with you.

The two official languages spoken are English and Swahili and many local dialects.

In Tanzania, the population is estimated to be close to 40 million and unfortunately for the Tanzania people their life expectancy is on average 49 years for men and women but that his changing yearly.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area
In the north-west of Tanzania, you will find the Ngorongoro Conservation. Known as the jewel in the crown, the conservation has a deep volcanic crater and is one of the natural wonders of the world.

Tarangire National Park
This park is situated between Serengeti
and Ngorongoro conservation and is so underrated. Big mistake, as it is magnificent. It has the second highest population of wildlife for its size and the largest concentration of elephants. With extensive swamps, grassy savannah plains and the Tarangire river, it is not just the wildebeest to keep you captivated. It is the best place for birdwatching too. A Tanzania guided
For a rest from the safaris, why not take a trip across the channel from Zanzibar to Pemba Island. This beautiful place is still largely undiscovered as a tourist location, but with its stunning coast that is lined with lagoons and mangroves, it may not stay that way for long.

Lake Victoria borders Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya and is Africa's largest lake. It is also the largest tropical lake on the planet. On the Tanzania half of the lake, it offers many attractions off the beaten track.

A private tour of Tanzania through the waters and shores is so worth it!
A private tour to the uninhabited Bongoyo Island is highly recommended. This beautiful place is idyllic and ideal for the snorkelers and sunbathers.

A typical marine creature found at Bongoyo intertidal pools are the octopus.
Ruaha National Park
This park is the largest in Tanzania. The park got its name from the Great Ruaha river that flows through. This park offers huge amounts of excitement with so much to see and scare you.

The Park also has many reptiles and amphibians for those interested that include poisonous and non-poisonous snakes and crocodile
House of Wonders / Beit el-Ajaib
For something entirely different, visit the House of Wonders in Zanzibar. It was built in 1883 by a Sultan and has tiers of slender steel pillars and balconies looking on to the Forodhani Gardens, all very impressive. When built it had running water and electricity which was totally unheard of in those days and exciting. It is the grandest building in Zanzibar and now is home to the National Museum of History and Culture.
Lake Manyara National Park
One of Tanzania's smallest park but with its dramatic Rift Valley on the west and the alkaline Lake Manyara to the east, it is just as good as anywhere you will go in Tanzania. This national park is no less diverse with ranges of vegetation such as marshes and evergreen forests. It has one of the highest quantity of elephants and hippos. A unique thing in this Park, Lion's climb trees here, difficult to track down but worth it.
