Tanzania in East Africa is large country. If the Safari itself is an emotionally unique travel experience , finding the best chance to make a Safari in Tanzania is the only way to approach a world seen perhaps only in documentaries . For those wishing to live on their skin all the nuances of a unique experience, the best choices for a safari in Tanzania, and we do not speak only from the economic point of view but also because of the opportunity to live the experience more immersive as possible, have as a prerequisite for a precise and detailed knowledge of all the most important information. Here are some ideas:
Safari in Tanzania: what is the best time?
If the choice of the period of your Safari in Tanzania is the right one, you can watch the famous cyclical migration: for example, between June and early September is the great annual wildebeest migration from the plains of the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania to the north, in the Reserve of the Grumeti River and on the border with Kenya, where the Mara flows. You can find out more information on when to visit Tanzania here.
There are two rivers, two crucial points in the long run (over 500 km), addressed to the survival of almost two million wildebeest, half a million Thompson’s gazelles and 200,000 zebras. The objectives of the pastures are green and made fruitful by the recent heavy rains where the animals will find plenty of food and time for love.
What is the game drive and who are the Big Five
A game drive is a small tour, usually lasting 2-3 hours, in search of wild animals. The guide/driver leads to the search of animals: the best times are early morning or late afternoon when there is more chance of a sighting. In some cases, you can make a night game drive with means and guides provided by the park.
The “Big Five” (literally, the Big Five) are buffalo, lion, elephant, leopard and rhino.
It’s very likely to spot them, especially if you spend 3-4 hours in Ngorongoro and Serengeti. The leopard hunts at night and during the day usually rest on the trees where it leads its prey. The rhinoceros are very shy despite the large size.
To find the best solution possible programming is critical. We must always take into account several variables: the distance to be covered between a camp and the others (even a full day trip) and the weather conditions.
