Tanzania captivates the senses, engages the mind, and inspires the spirit. From the annual Great Migration to the origins of humanity, Tanzania is truly the crown jewel of East Africa. 

Each year, millions of animals cross the Mara River dividing Kenya from Tanzania on a quest to find fresh grass sprung from recent rains. The annual journey stretches nearly 1,800 miles and takes eight to nine months to complete, from the crossing of treacherous rivers to the promise of endless lush grasslands. The migration is a highly complex natural phenomenon, the timing of which varies widely from year to year. For visitors hoping to see the Great Migration during a Tanzania safari, we offer comfortable mobile tented camps to move along the migration route with the animals, providing the best vantage point to witness this dramatic natural spectacle.

Tanzania has many national parks and protected areas to visit, including Serengeti, Lake Manyara, Tarangire, and Mt. Kilimanjaro. The densest known population of lions lives in the Ngorongoro Crater, as do elephants, rhinos, buffalo, and leopards. Though most famous for its large mammals, Tanzania is also home to move than 1,000 bird species, including a number of endemic and regional specialties. From the dazzling and aptly-named Beautiful Sunbird to the grotesque Marabou Stork, birding in Tanzania offers a world of contrasts.

Beyond wildlife game drives and captivating landscapes, no trip to Tanzania is complete without pausing to discover the history and traditions of the Maasai and Iraqw tribes through authentic cultural immersion experiences. The roots of human history were discovered at Olduvai Gorge when Mary and Louis Leakey excavated the earliest known specimens of the human genus Homo habilis, making Tanzania one of the world’s best places to study anthropology.
