2. How far in advance should I book for safari?

It is advised to book as earlier as you can. Safari Tanzania Ltd as all other tour companies encourages early bookings to provide sufficient time to make all necessary arrangements such as airport transfers (if any), hotels/ lodges and campsites especially during high season (July and August) or Christmas holidays. Twelve weeks or more is the recommended time for booking.

3: When is the best time for tour in Tanzania?

Any time round the year is the best time to visit Tanzania as Safari Tanzania tour guides know where to take you for wildlife and birdlife viewing. Dry season (July – October) is the suitable time for beach holiday and diving as the sky is clear with sunshine the whole day. Because of its tropical weather the rains are not as heavy as in the Amazon forests.

4: Which is the best place to go on safari?

Tanzania has several mountains to climb including Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Meru, Ol’doinyo Lenkai (Lengai) and Usambara Mountains. There are more than 10 National Parks that accommodate birdlife and wildlife including: Arusha National Park, Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Mikumi National Park, Serengeti National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, Selous Game Reserve, Udzungwa Mountain National Park, Ruaha National Park, Mahale National Park, Gombe Stream National Park and Katavi National Park. Tanzania has great historical sites like old slave trade markets and Museums. Cultural execution is undertaken as well.

Vegetarians will be served accordingly; nevertheless we will appreciate if we get informed in advance.

6: Is drinking water safe? Is it OK to drink water?

While on Safari we offer bottled water as it is safe for drinking. You can buy an extra bottle (s) of mineral water from super- markets or lodges where you will spend days and nights for reasonable price.
