What happens on a Safari in Tanzania?

Picture yourself in a safari vehicle with a pop-up roof, offering panoramic 360-degree views of the breathtaking scenery. Wildlife often comes close enough for incredible photo opportunities.

As the sun sets, you’ll retire to a safari lodge or mobile tented camp for dinner and rest. The adventure continues the next day, delving deeper into the natural wonders of Tanzania. Its awe-inspiring landscapes and abundant wildlife have captured imaginations worldwide, inspiring stories and documentaries that celebrate the beauty of the African wilderness.

Yet, a Tanzanian safari is more than just wildlife; it’s a cultural odyssey. Visit Maasai villages to immerse yourself in local traditions and explore historic sites like the Olduvai Gorge – known as the “Cradle of Mankind”.

For a truly unique experience, embark on a walking safari through the savannah for intimate encounters with nature. Feeling adventurous? Take to the skies in a hot air balloon and marvel at the scenic beauty from a bird’s-eye view. Safari With A Heart offers these and other off-the-beaten-path experiences to enrich your safari adventure.

What animals you will see on Tanzania safari?

In Tanzania, the thrill of encountering the ‘Big Five’—lions, leopards, buffaloes, rhinos, and elephants—captivates many safari-goers. Although rhinos are scarce in East Africa, sightings are still possible, particularly in the Ngorongoro Crater. The other members of the Big Five are abundant, ensuring thrilling wildlife encounters.

But Tanzania offers far more than just the Big Five. Its wildlife is diverse, boasting cheetahs, wildebeests, zebras, and monkeys among its many inhabitants. Bird enthusiasts will be enchanted by the country’s 1,156 bird species, including over 800 resident and numerous migratory species, with the best viewing opportunities from December to April. At Safari With A Heart, we have avid birdwatchers thrilled by the incredible variety of birdlife in Tanzania.
