The Classic Tanzania Safari

Tanzania definitely tops the list when it comes to African safari adventures. This East African nation is home to some of the largest national parks and game reserves – 3 of them are hailed as UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites – and the most abundant and diverse wildlife in Africa. Tanzania offers the best chance of seeing the “big five” – the lion, the leopard, the buffalo, the elephant, and the rhino – as well as the world’s most wonderful natural spectacle, the great wildebeest migration.

About Zanzibar Beach

Zanzibar is known for its white sand beaches with crystal clear turquoise waters lined with lush palm trees. The island’s only national park is the Jozani Forest, which is home to the rare red Colobus monkeys as well as evergreen trees and mangroves. The Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Centre, is a fascinating destination rich in history and culture with its unique architecture, colourful market stalls, and fascinating slice of local island life.

August

This month is the perfect time to see elephants and a dense population of wildlife roam around the Tarangire River in Tarangire National Park. The water is also particularly clear this of the year in Zanzibar, which is perfect for snorkeling in the island.
