1. The wildlife
Spending your days out in the wilderness in the animals natural environment is such a unique treat. Going on an African safari means you get to see the most unique creatures up close, including the Big 5 of course, but also amazing bird life. Lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, leopards, giraffes are just a few of the awesome animals you will encounter on an African safari in Tanzania.
2. The Great Migration
Many travellers go on an African safari to see the Great Migration, where over two million wildebeest move on a circular trip through the Serengeti accompanied by zebra, eland, gazelle and impala. Between September and October the migration is crossing the Mara River in the north of the Serengeti, a dramatic spectacle and African safari highlight.
3. The landscapes
Dramatic landscapes fill Tanzania, with vast grassy savannahs of national parks, rugged mountain ranges, tropical coastlines and three of Africa’s great lakes, including Lake Victoria and the highest mountain in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro. The Great Rift Valley runs through Tanzania and features vast lakes, mountain ranges, the Ngorongoro Crater and volcanoes including Empakai and Lengai. The most famous National Park, the Serengeti, is in Tanzania and is a must see on any African safari.
4. The culture and people
Tanzania offers the most diverse and rich cultural experiences, allowing visitors a rich insight into the people’s culture, history and way of life. With Taswira Africa Safaris, you can walk with Maasai warriors and learn about natural medicine, go hunting with the Hadzabe tribe who are the only remaining hunter-gatherers in East Africa or visit the homes and farms of the industrious Chagga people in the foothills of Kilimanjaro.
5. The accommodation
Where you stay is an important aspect of any African Safari. We recommend glamping in luxury tented camps in the Serengeti, with canvas walls, solid floors and four poster beds – you won’t want to leave! Special and unique experiences such as stories under the stars, sunset drinks, Maasai dances, massages and infinity pools will make your African safari unforgettable.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Ngorongoro Crater, is one of Africa's safari highlights. The name Ngorongoro is from a Maasai word meaning 'Gift of LIfe.'
After a long flight, or to unwind at the end of a safari, arriving to this seemingly secret spot is a delight for all your senses. As you drive into the entrance you are warmly welcomed by Maasai singing, wide smiles and a refreshing hibiscus flower juice.
