WESTERN TANZANIA SAFARI HOLIDAY

Western Tanzania offers something very different for the intrepid safari-goer. Katavi National Park in Tanzania is one of the undiscovered gems of the continent, a large and wild park, relatively undiscovered and a unique African Safari hideaway. Mahale Mountains National Park, bordering mystical Lake Tanganyika is quite simply stunning – and also the best place to see Chimpanzees in their natural habitat.

TRAVEL TIPS FOR TANZANIA

LET US GUIDE YOU...

Probably not for the first time visitor to Africa, this safari in Tanzania is for real outdoors types, those looking for remote adventures, and travellers who have seeing Chimps in the wild on their bucket list!

Once you get back to Arusha/Kilimanjaro at the end of the safari you can head for the beaches of Zanzibar, or Mauritius, or the Seychelles. From Nairobi (a short flight away) you can also get to Victoria Falls, or Cape Town, or Dubai for a real contrast. There are plenty of options.

"Just wanted to let you know that we have returned safely from our adventure, to sum up the trip is easy as it was fantastic from start to finish with all arrangements working perfectly and the choice of venues was spot on. Our final thought is that we must go back next year as there are so many other places we would like to visit and many we want to return to."
