Africa's Eastern Shores to the Cape
Travel on the “most luxurious train in the world” traversing Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana enroute to Cape Town. With stays at the Victoria Falls Hotel, Madikwe Game Reserve and The Mount Nelson Hotel
Mainland Tanzania is breathtakingly immense and beautiful, and boasts the highest concentration of wildlife in the world. Off the coast, the heady fragrance of the spice groves and the soothing sight of a dhow's billowing sail make Zanzibar one of Africa's most mesmerising islands.
From the shortgrass savannah and the coral sands of Zanzibar, to snow-capped Kilimanjaro watching over the many national parks below, Tanzania captivates visitors with its beautiful diversity.
Nowhere is this variety more alive than in Tanzania’s animal kingdom. Tanzania's Parks Authority is responsible for the national parks and animal numbers have increased thanks to their anti-poaching effort, especially large herds of elephant, giraffe and buffalo. The Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti are home to a permanent large animal population of over a million, with an annual influx of more than two million during the dry season. At Jules Verne, we have a wealth of tours to Tanzania that offer you the chance to see some of these magnificent animals.
So important is the well-being of the country’s creatures that an astonishing 25% of Tanzania’s land area is given over to protected wildlife parks. A tour of Selous Game Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage site, will enable you to see the animals thriving in a natural habitat. Elsewhere, the Madete marine park offers protection for endangered green sea turtles to lay their eggs, and Saadani’s National Park will introduce you to even more animals - including the crocodile.
Although the majority of our tours fall between May and December, the weather in Tanzania is generally good all year round thanks to its tropical climate. The coastal areas are hot and humid and the north-western highlands are cooler. As the country can be visited all year round, we would recommend going on one of our Tanzania trips outside of the peak months of December and January to avoid the crowds.
No matter if you’re dreaming of journeying through Tanzania’s Secret South, or are longing to see some of the beautiful animals this country has to offer, our team of experts would be delighted to help you book your next Tanzania holiday and ensure that every part is planned to perfection.
Our Tanzania tours can be enjoyed with a group of like-minded travellers and friends, as well as solo with an experienced tour guide. This makes for a much more personalised experience with an expert on hand who can answer any questions you may have.
