Where Will You Go?

Tanzania is a country located in East Africa that is home to Mount Kilimanjaro, one of the highest points on the continent. The country resides along the Indian Ocean and spans over nine-hundred thousand kilometers. Climates in the area remain of a tropical nature with variations experienced in certain regions at different times of the year. Travelers are able to explore grassland, savanna, woodland, and fresh water ecosystems while visiting Tanzania on an African safaris vacation. Popular parks and reserves in the area include:

  •  Kilimanjaro
  • Serengeti
  • Tarangire
  • Ngorongoro Crater
  • Selous

Parks and reserves in the region are known for specific types of wildlife experiences at different times of the year, making it important to know what you desire to see on an African safaris vacation. For example, Tarangire National Park is well known for its extensive population of bird species such as the Ashy Starling, Yellow-Collared lovebird, and dwarf mongoose as well as its large (6,500) elephant population, but the park excels at different times of the year. The Serengeti is host to the world’s largest migration of animals with three events (wildebeest calving, wildebeest rut and river crossings) happening at different locations and times of the year. The first step in planning this elaborate trip into the wild should be deciding what you want to see. Unique Safaris can help determine what parks offer the most rewarding experiences and create a package to fit your budget.
