About Tanzania

Tanzania is an East African country known for its vast wilderness areas. They include the plains of Serengeti National Park, a safari mecca populated by the “big five” game (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino), and Kilimanjaro National Park, home to Africa’s highest mountain. Offshore lie the tropical islands of Zanzibar, with Arabic influences, and Mafia, with a marine park home to whale sharks and coral reefs.

Best time to visit

The best times to see Tanzania’s wildlife are from July to September to catch the river crossings of the Great Migration and for Spice Island sunshine. Try June or September to avoid the biggest safari crowds, or head south – the southern national parks are quiet all year round. Outside peak season, January and February offer generally dry weather, and wildlife emerges to make the most of the topped-up waterholes.

Wildlife

There are more than four million wild animals in Tanzania representing 430 different species and subspecies. The country houses some 20% of Africa’s large mammal population. Zebras, giraffes, elephants, wildebeest, buffaloes, hippos, antelopes and gazelles are common animals. Larger predatory animals like lions, cheetahs and leopards are also found. Along with the familiar African mammals are approximately 60,000 insect species, 25 types of reptiles and amphibians, around 100 species of snakes and many fish species.
