Tanzania Tours

The word Tanzania is derived from the names Tanganyika and Zanzibar. It is home to a melting pot of nationalities descending from Europe, Arab countries, Pakistan, India and China. The diversity is most seen in the port city of Dar Es Salaam and the spice island of Zanzibar. The wildebeest herds migrate south from the Masai Mara Game Reserve (Kenya) into the Serengeti National Park by late October. The calving season takes place from January to February, before the herds travel to the southern Ndutu region by March and April. The herds move north-west to Grumeti and return to the Masai Mara by late-June. These are the best months to experience the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti on your Budget Tour To Tanzania. The Ngorongoro Crater, formerly an active volcano, is home to an abundant diversity of wildlife and flora and the Big 5. It is easily combined with the Serengeti National Park for a great budget African safari tour.

Activities include climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, day and night game drives through the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation area and Tarangire National Park. Then go scuba diving for a refreshing and beautiful look at the aquatic and coral life of Pemba Island.

Best times to go on a Tanzania Tour:

Jul-Aug: During this time, the weather is cool. Dry season parks, like Tarangire, are at their prime. This is the best time to visit the Serengeti because during the height of the dry season, almost all the animals will go away on their own holiday in Kenya’s Masai Mara.

June- October is great for Zanzibar as the temperature is around 28 degrees.

December to mid March is the calving season in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater which is has amazing game viewing.

Why go on a Budget Tanzania Tour?

Tanzania has been described as one of the most diverse countries in Africa with over 158 local languages spoken. Add to that 120 tribes and you have a cultural melting pot. Expect a wide range of cultural activities, ethnic groups, performing arts and visual arts and literature. Choose one of our Tanzania Adventure Tours and don’t miss out.

Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti is the world’s largest protected grassland and savannah ecosystem due to the huge financial gain from tourism that supports the country’s economy. Therefore, by visiting this UNESCO World Heritage site you are assisting in contributing towards the sustainment of the country’s economy and the annual migration of the wild wildebeest.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Marked as a World Heritage site, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is well-populated with wildlife for your African safari experience. The crater is the main attraction of this area as it is the world’s largest inactive volcanic caldera. Two to three million years ago the volcano exploded and then collapsed in on itself, leaving a large gaping hole where animals roam freely.

Zanzibar Island

Locally known as UngujaZanzibar Island gets most of the headlines, but the archipelago also consists of lushPemba to the north and many more smaller islands and islets poised in amazingly turquoise seas. Visiting the museums and taking a walk through Stone Town is a good way of getting an idea of Zanzibar’s rich and turbulent slave-trade past. The architecture will surely fascinate you, as will the street markets.

Stone Town

The old city of Stone Town is the cultural heart of Zanzibar, and little has changed there for hundreds of years. The majority of Stone Town’s buildings were built by Omani sultans in the 19th century when Zanzibar was one of the most important trading centres in the Indian Ocean. In order to preserve these architectural markers of history, the Stone Town Conservation Authority has been working towards restoring this ancient town.

Nungwi Beach

The chilled out resort of  Nungwi Beach is on the northern tip of the island, which is the busier, more commercial side. It’s regarded as one of Zanzibar’s best beaches, because here you can swim to your heart’s delight, as it’s one of the few beaches with no coral reef. Also, it doesn’t matter what tide you swim in because the tide doesn’t draw back for miles, as on the east coast, which is a long walk before you can frolic in the water.

The East Coast

The East Coast of Zanzibar is the less commercial, more traditional side of the island, where you can chill out on the beach on one of the wooden beds with a good book and maybe a traditional masseuse. They, along with one or two ‘kikoi-selling’ locals walk up and down the beach to sell you a little something of Zanzibar.

Dar es Salaam

Tanzania’s premier city, Dar es Salaam is a teeming metropolis of 1.5 million people. It is the largest city in Tanzania, as well as the wealthiest, dealing in manufacturing and trade.

Olduvai Gorge ‘Cradle of Mankind’

Olduvai Gorge is a steep-sided ravine in the Great Rift Valley and is about 48km (30mi) long. The original spelling was Oldupai, which is Maasai for the wild sisal plant that grows there. Olduvai is often referred to as the ‘Cradle of Mankind’ because the first humanoid skeletons were discovered there. There is a museum that’s documented all its remarkable findings.

Mt Kilimanjaro National Park

Jutting out from Tanzania’s north-eastern plains is Mt Kilimanjaro, an almost perfectly shaped volcano. It’s truly a sight to behold. At a solid 5896m (19343ft), its snow-capped peak is the highest in Africa.

Selous Game Reserve

One of our planet’s last great wild places, the 55,000 sq km (21,235 sq mi) Selous Game Reserve offers you a fantastic African budget safari: untamed bush, emerald green floodplains and crocodile-filled lakes.

Lake Manyara

Often overlooked because of the other two big, famous parks, the small-in-size, yet-large-in-wildlife 325km² Lake Manyara offers a really unusual Africa overland tour. It lies about 130km from Arusha near the small town of Mto Wa Mbu.
