Safaris in Tanzania seeing some of Africa's Most Spectacular Wildlife

East Africa’s iconic landscapes are all part of your private, luxury Tanzania safari with millions of wildebeest streaming across the Serengeti, the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro and the perfect volcanic caldera of the Ngorongoro Crater where, in the surrounding Ngorongoro Conservation Area, huge concentrations of game co-exist with pastoral Masai herdsmen.

The Explorations Company, where no two journeys have ever been the same

The Northern Tanzania Safari contains some of the most spectacular wildlife in Africa including the Tarangire and the Serengeti, home to the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa. During the short rains, up to two million wildebeest migrate to the Serengeti (in what is known as the wildebeest migration).

Climb Mount Kilimanjaro (Africa’s highest mountain) or Mount Meru, taking the scenic and uncommercial route; game-view with your own private 4x4 vehicle and expert Tanzanian guide, perhaps on a Tanzania family luxury safari; view wonderful flamingos on Lake Magadi; spend time on beautiful Lake Eyasi with the Hadzabe tribe, who are one of the last true hunter-gatherers of Tanzania.

Walk through the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Highlands with your private safari guide on a Tanzania walking safari, following the tracks left by predators and other animals; have a private, mobile luxury safari tent erected just for the two of you or your family in a game-rich region; go horse-riding in the Serengeti, walk with your guide and the Maasai in the Empakaai Crater.

Tanzania tends to be more African and genuine than many of its other African counterparts, and the time spent with your guide really lets you learn more about these wonderful people and their culture. There are also some very beautiful and luxurious lodges for those who would prefer not to stay in a Tanzania luxury safari camp!

Southern Tanzania is one of our favourite regions in Africa. Pristine, remote, uncommercial, amazing landscapes, few tourists. What could be better? Well, add to that private luxury safari tented camps or lodges purely for your family or group of friends led by one of Tanzania’s top guides and the appeal of a Southern Tanzania Safari becomes even greater.

Days are entirely flexible, decisions made on-the-hoof. What shall we do today? A combination of game-viewing by vehicle, African walking safari, by boat, perhaps a private fly-camp erected for half of the party for a single night, sleeping beneath the stars? Canoeing along the lake? Going for a morning walk, culminating with a bush breakfast? Or perhaps a private house, overlooking the Rufiji River. Sleep in a bohemian-styled, Moroccan tent with just the two of you. Fly-camp beneath the stars on the sandbank for a night or two. Go fishing on the Rufiji River.

Undertake a 5-day Tanzania walking safari in Ruaha; track the greatest concentration of habituated chimps in the before bathing in Lake Tanganyika, more akin to the Mediterranean. Have a private luxury safari camp set up for you in Katavi so that you are the only people in the park as you watch the birds all returning to roost at sunset. Equally, there is a multitude of really beautiful camps and lodges in Ruaha, Katavi, Selous, Mahale Mountains, Gombe, Saadani and the Highlands, so we can arrange a fabulous and diverse bespoke African luxury safari for you.
