About Tanzania

Come with us on a journey to the very beginning of our earthly existence. A place that stood the test of time, a landscape filled with ancient wild scenery, a land of mystery and smiles. Touch nature at its purest.

Tanzania has a treasure chest of hidden bounties. A lot of these remain un- touched by the crowded minibuses and safari vehicles, which tend to be pulled by a hidden magnet, it seems, only to the famous Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.

This is great in our eyes as it leaves the real feeling of wild Africa un-cluttered. Her temporary visitors, namely you, experience a place that time forgot and have the chance to immerse themselves in pure nature.

Tanzania by region

On the following pages, we’ll introduce our country to you. The easiest way to navigate is by either first selecting the region, or by simply clicking on the map below…

Tanzania by month

Our country has something on offer for every time of the year though of-course conditions during the – rewarding – rainy periods might be adventurous, to say the least. Going through the year, from month to month…

January & February
Still excellent game viewing to be had – these months are the driest and hottest so plenty of wildlife congregating around water holes and rivers. The grasses are short making it easier to spot the big cats.

March, April and May
Heading into low season can also be very rewarding with the annual migration of the wildebeest that congregate in the Ngorongoro conservation area (NCA). These begin to calf throughout April and slowly, as the months get dryer again, move in a Northern direction back into the Western side of the Serengeti before finally massing around central Serengeti from June to remain there as long as there is food and water.

The parks are quieter throughout the low season with very little tourist cars and generally it is very green as throughout April and May you will (normally) experience the rainy season. Track conditions can be interesting and some flights into the smaller bush strips close until June.

June & July
The season officially kicks off again. The grasses are fairly long during these months so some game can be a little harder to see. Migration

August & September
Things begin to warm up again and grasses turn from green to golden brown. Migration.

October, November & December
The second peak/high-season with wild-life plentiful in all areas with even pockets of the migration still hanging around in Northern Serengeti. Lodges however can be very difficult to get – if you are planning a safari for December make sure you book early in the year.
