Ways to safari in Tanzania

22 July 2017

The word safari comes from Swahili where it means “long journey”. Previously, the safari was always dedicated to the hunting of big game. Nowadays, the word safari refers to making tours in African game parks. The most beautiful photo is hunted, so the word photo safari is becoming more and more popular.

Due to the many wildlife parks in which large groups of animals live, Tanzania is the ultimate safari country. We offer you multiple opportunities to explore the natural beauty of Tanzania during a safari.

Horse-riding safari
Is horse riding a big passion and are you planning to go to Tanzania? Our horseback safari is an unforgettable experience. You can opt for a short horse-riding safari of 2 days, but also a 7-day horse-riding safari is possible.

Walking safari
A walking safari is a unique experience because you always see more on foot than from the car. More attention is also paid to the smaller details. Accompanied by an armed guide you enjoy nature, animals and the environment. In Serengeti National Park your own Green Camp is the starting point for this authentic multi-day private walking safari.
It’s also possible to make beautiful walks in the volcanic area around Lake Natron.

Mountain bike safari
A special way to explore Tanzania is by mountain bike. We offer the option of a multi-day mountain bike safari, but you can also opt for a short mountain bike safari. Guidance is by a professional guide.

Balloon flight safari
A highlight of your trip, experience Tanzania from the air! This is a sensational experience to remember for ever! During this balloon flight, you’ll see the vast plains of the Serengeti and enjoy all the beautiful things that take place below you. Chances are, the animals will walk beneath you.

Night safari
A night safari gives your safari another wonderful experience. You can spot and hear different animals from an open 4WD jeep! The night safari lasts approximately 3 hours and is accompanied by an experienced guide.

Canoe safari
A safari by canoe is also possible. An extraordinary adventure to admire the animals from this side. And do getcus started talking about the beautiful view of the Kilimanjaro and Meru! The canoe safari takes about 3 hours and is accompanied by a guide.

Jeep safari
A jeep safari sounds almost ordinary in comparison to the above safaris, but that is not true! A jeep safari is the way to explore the vast land and the many National Parks. You leave on the first day together with a private car and professional safari guide on a tour through the parks. Throughout the safari, you have the same car and guide.
Your travel route and desired accommodation is, in consultation with you, pre-arranged by Explore Tanzania. You have your own jeep so that the safari day can be filled in as desired. You can start the safari at dawn, or decide to sleep in and leave at a later time and come back at sunset. All is in consultation with your guide.
