Discover Tanzania with Ntaba African Safaris

Allow Ntaba African Safaris to take you on an African Safari to Tanzania and we will give you an unforgettable travel experience. It will touch you deeply within and it is an experience of a lifetime. A trip to Tanzania is both intriguing and exciting, created by the fascinating balance between wildlife, the landscapes and its people.

Tanzania is a safari destination without equal. An unparalleled one quarter of its surface area has been set aside for conservation, with the world renowned Serengeti National Park and the incredibly vast Selous Game Reserve. They are part of a rich mosaic of protected areas that collectively harbor an estimated 20 percent of Africa’s large mammal population. With such a perfect location, perched on the edge of the African continent, and facing the Indian Ocean, Tanzania’s weather and climate leaves nothing to be desired. Warm and sunny days are followed by cool and balmy nights, and whether you’re on a safari on the Serengeti plains or enjoying the tropical beaches of Zanzibar, the temperatures are always welcoming and gentle. Tanzania has emerged from comparative obscurity to stand as one of Africa’s most dynamic and popular travel destinations; a land whose staggering natural variety is complemented by the innate hospitality of the people who live there. The Tanzanian experience is can be summarized in a single word, one that visitors will hear a dozen times daily, no matter where they travel in Tanzania, or how they go about it: the smiling, heartfelt Swahili greeting of “KARIBU”- WELCOME!

Major Attractions in Tanzania

  • Mount Kilimanjaro and Meru, respectively the highest and fifth-highest peak on the continent
  • Lakes Victoria, Tanganyika and Nyasa, the three largest fresh water bodies in Africa.
  • The magical “SPICE ISLANDS” of Zanzibar, the highlight of a vast Indian Ocean coastline studded with postcard perfect beaches, stunning offshore diving sites, and mysterious ruins.

Natural and Cultural Wonders

  • Rising from the sandy shores of Lake Tanganyika, the forested Gombe Stream and Mahale Mountains National Parks vie with each other as the best place in the world to track wild chimpanzees.
  • Closer to the coast are the Eastern Arc Mountains. They have been dubbed the “African Galapagos” in recognition of their wealth of endemic plants and animals.
  • Tanzania’s daunting natural variety is mirrored by a cultural diversity embracing 120 distinct tribes, from the iconic Maasai pastoralist of the Rift valley, to the Arab-influenced Swahili of the coast, to the Hadzabe hunter gatherers of Lake Eyasi.
  • The one thing that does bind Tanzania’s diverse attractions is of course, its people, who take justifiable pride in their deeply ingrained national mood of tolerance and peacefulness.
  • Tanzania, for all of its ethnic diversity, is practically unique in Africa in having navigated a succession of modern political hurdles. The transformation from colonial dependency to independent nation, from socialist state to free-market economy, from a one party system to a fully-fledged democracy. All of this without ever experiencing sustained civil or ethnic unrest.

Something for Everyone

  • Long days hiking in sub-zero conditions on the upper slopes of Africa’s most alluring peaks
  • A once-in-a-lifetime safari followed by a sojourn on an idyllic Indian Ocean beach
  • The thrill of eyeballing habituated Chimpanzees
  • Diving in the spectacular offshore reefs around Mafia,
  • Backpacking through the time-warped ports and crumbling ruins of the half-forgotten south coast
