Tanzania Safari Overview
This Tanzania safari is ideal for those who have done plenty of safaris before and are looking for something really different. Please be aware that it involves a large amount of flying in small planes, as you are covering a lot of ground and Mahale Mountains is in the very west of Tanzania. Greystoke Camp in Mahale is one of those really one off amazing places that combines a lovely camp on the beach of lake Tanganyika with some chimp trekking in the mountains just behind. The parks included are all wonderfully remote, not over developed with lots of camps and offers a very exclusive safari. We advise travelling in the second half of the year as it offers better weather and wildlife viewing.
20 days from £9,950 per person
When to go
Tanzania is huge and its sheer size means that the climate varies considerably within it. However, generally the main rainy season, or the 'long rains', lasts during about March, April and May.
The long dry season lasts throughout June, July, August, September and October is when rainfall is unusual, even on the islands. During November and December there's another rainy season: the 'short rains'. These are much lighter than the main rains and less reliable. January and February is Tanzania's 'short dry season', before starting to rain again in earnest in March.
This is only a suggested itinerary; we are able to offer various activities and accommodation options making Tanzania very affordable.
