More than a quarter of Tanzania is covered by national parks, game reserves and conservation areas that support a large variety of wildlife such as elephant, lion, leopard and cheetah. Tanzania safaris can be accommodated in lodges, permanent tented camps or mobile camping. The annual wildebeest migration is a sight to behold and a trek up Mt. Kilimanjaro is an unforgettable adventure. Embark on an African safari with Snow cap limited. An overland or mobile tented Africa safari is one of the best ways to explore the wonders of Tanzania. Africa Snow cap limited safari experts will guide you into the remote East Africa areas. At Snow cap limited we strive to make your Africa safari the experience of a lifetime. Of course, it helps to know what you have in mind when you think of safari travel. By choosing one of the following four options you will be taken to the African safari that best suits you.
The most developed of Tanzania’s tourism route is known as the Northern Circuit though it remains quite intact. This is the circuit where you can see huge herds of wildebeest, flocks of brilliant pink flamingos emerging from the swirling mists of alkaline lakes. Northern circuit includes Serengeti National park, Ngorongoro Conservation Authority Area, Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park, Arusha National Park and Kilimanjaro National Park.
Note also that the cradle of man kind (Olduvai Gorge) is found in the northern circuit, plus the bushmen in Lake Eyasi. It’s also in this circuit that you can visit the Maasai who still keep their customs and traditions. Northern circuit has its base in Arusha town which is today popularly known as tourist capital in Tanzania.
The northern circuit is the most popular safari circuit of Tanzania. In most cases, you will fly to Kilimanjaro Int. Airport or Arusha airport and travel onwards to Arusha, the town from where the northern circuit is explored. Upon an early arrival, you could start with a visit to Arusha National Park the same day. If the safari includes a flight back to Arusha from the Serengeti, Tarangire and/or Lake Manyara will most likely be the first you’ll visit (depending on the season, since Tarangire is only seasonally good). Next is Ngorongoro crater, one of the largest intact volcanic calderas in the world and full of wildlife. Last but not least, Serengeti National Park, one of the best parks of Africa. If you drive back instead of flying, you will most likely skip either the Ngorongoro crater or Tarangire/Lake Manyara on the way to the Serengeti, and visit them on the way back.
This safari takes you to two of Tanzania’s largest wildlife areas, the Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park and Mikumi these two parks have very different ecosystems, but both offer a real experience of wilderness – you can often safari for days without seeing another vehicle.
This tour is ideal for a seasoned traveller who is hoping to navigate their way through the hidden gems of Tanzania. Encounter the paths less travelled as you follow the spoor of the diverse wildlife species into the wilderness. Venture out into the untamed bush of the Selous Game Reserve and explore the Rufiji River’s waterways during a boating safari.
Hide away in the thick forests of the Southern Highlands as you enjoy time outdoors in the tea plantations of Mufindi Highland Lodge on the Rift Valley Escarpment. A wide range of outdoor activities are available for the adventurous spirits.
Enjoy your position on the banks of the Great Ruaha River as you watch the resident hippo and crocodile species occupy the water. A prolific list of bird species can be spotted on the game viewing excursions. The game species of the Ruaha National Park provide for impressive year-round viewing but the dry season between June and December sees the congregation of wildlife around the park’s only permanent water source. Relax in the picture-perfect views of the Tanzanian coast as you visit Lazy Lagoon Island. Nestled in lush vegetation and sandy white beaches. Investigate the coral reef as you snorkel your way through schools of fish, or sail into an unrivalled African sunset on a dhow safari.
Most people visit the western circuit to track chimpanzees in Gombe or Mahale Mountains National Park. These two chimp reserves on the shore of Lake Tanganyika offer the best chimp tracking in Africa. Getting here is expensive and time-consuming and is mostly done by chartered plane from Arusha. Instead of visiting one of the chimp reserves as an add-on to a safari in the north, you can combine it with a safari in Katavi, which is the savannah reserve in the western circuit and probably Tanzania’s least visited park. Not for lack of wildlife, though. This park offers excellent game viewing in the dry season with superb wilderness appeal, which will make you feel like you own the place.
Tanzania Cultural Tourism, People and Culture in Tanzania: With its cultural art facts where you can experience real African life and enjoy the beautiful scenery of green mountains, wide plains and the dramatic Rift Valley, Cultural tourism refers to a form of tourism in which local people are closely involved. They design and organize the tours, show tourists aspects of the area in which they live and of their daily life. During the tours, local people often show their development projects, like irrigation and soil conservation activities or income generating projects of women’s groups. Visitors leave the area feeling they have made new friends and with information on the many positive developments going on in rural Tanzania.
