Ngorongoro Crater is a remarkable geological feature, renowned for being the largest unbroken caldera globally and a designated World Heritage Site. The concentration of diverse wildlife found in the park is unmatched, making it a must-see destination. Additionally, the crater offers breathtaking views and distinctive landforms.

Tarangire is the sixth biggest national park in Tanzania and offers fantastic opportunities to see wildlife. The park's valley is home to the Tarangire River, which attracts many animals because of the freshwater. The park is known for its dense baobab and acacia trees, which make for a classic African scenery during game drives.

Lake Manyara may be small, but it has a diverse range of habitats that are different from the savannas. If you go into the dense woods, you may see primates, ungulates, and even lions climbing trees if you're lucky. You can also enjoy the beautiful view of the lake and watch various birds gathering around its peaceful waters.

Arusha National Park

Arusha's biggest attraction is its diverse and distinct geology. You can embark on an exciting walking safari route through the tropical rainforest on Meru's slopes and the caldera breach. This route provides an opportunity to observe colobus monkeys, giraffes, buffalo, and antelopes up close. Additionally, you can visit Momella Lakes to witness the regular migration of water birds. Overall, Arusha offers a unique and magical experience.

  • What is Safari
    Safari offers a unique and extraordinary adventure in Africa's protected wildlife areas, allowing people to witness freely roaming animals in their natural habitat. The enjoyment of safari may be perplexing to some, as it breaks away from conventional tourism and provides an unparalleled opportunity to intimately encounter the world's most remarkable animals. Typically, safari involves traveling in a well-equipped off-road vehicle accompanied by a knowledgeable driver-guide. In addition to classic game drives, safari experiences can include visits to local tribes, trekking activities, hot air balloon safaris, walking safaris, and boat safaris on water. Kanje Grand Tours offers safari programs ranging from one to seven days, with the option to customize the duration. We highly recommend dedicating as many days as possible to safari trips during your vacation, as it offers the ultimate way to immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring African wildlife.
  • Cost of Safari and Payment Methods
    The cost of safari tours is calculated depending on their duration (1-7 days), the number of participants (1-5 people) and the chosen level of hotel comfort. For example, a one-day safari in Tarangire Park for a group of five people will cost $245. A week-long safari with a visit to the main reserves of northern Tanzania and accommodation in premium hotels for one person may cost up to $14,811. You can pay for your safari with Visa, Mastercard and American Express cards or Bitcoin and Ethereum cryptocurrencies. It is also possible to pay in cash in US dollars, euros and British pounds.
  • Cost composition for our Safari Tours
    When designing our safari packages, our goal is to offer the best quality and comfort at a reasonable price. There are several factors that affect the cost of a safari in Tanzania, including the price of entry permits to national parks, the type and location of accommodations, and additional fees for hotels and lodges inside the parks. The choice of national parks visited also influences the overall cost, with Ngorongoro and Serengeti being the more expensive options. We offer a range of accommodations to fit different budgets, from 3-star rustic options to luxurious 5-star properties. The location of accommodations, whether inside or outside the national parks, can also impact costs. Additionally, our rates consider the fair compensation for our safari guides, vehicle maintenance and fuel expenses, as well as the mandatory government fees and taxes. While we strive to accommodate various budgets, we prioritize certain essentials for a pleasant and memorable safari experience. For instance, we do not offer camping safaris with overnight stays at campsites or provide rental safari vehicles to ensure our customers' satisfaction and comfort.
  • Best Time for Safari in Tanzania
    The best time for a safari in Tanzania depends on your travel priorities. The year in Tanzania can be divided into three parts: the dry season, the small rains, and the big rains. The dry season, which occurs from June to October and January to March, is generally considered the best time for a safari. During this period, animals tend to gather near rivers and other water sources, making wildlife spotting easier. The weather is usually clear and sunny, and there are fewer mosquitoes. However, one drawback of the dry season is that parks in the northern part of the country can get crowded with safari vehicles. From the end of January, the birth season for zebras, wildebeest, and other antelopes begins, attracting predators and adding energy and activity to the herds and their interactions. The rainy season, which takes place in April and May, offers a different experience. While there may be more moderate vehicle traffic, you have the opportunity to see the savannah lush and green after the rains. Additionally, many safari lodges offer discounts during this time. It's important to note that safari Land Cruisers have pop-off roofs that can be closed if it starts raining, so there's no need to fear the rain during your safari. There are also specific transition periods that are worth considering. Late March, early June, late October, and November are times when the likelihood of rain is low, but the national parks are not as busy as during the peak months. These periods can offer a balance between good weather, moderate crowds, and possible discounts. In summary, if you prefer dry weather and abundant wildlife sightings, the dry season is the best time for your safari in Tanzania. However, if you don't mind some rain and want to enjoy the lush greenery and potential discounts, the rainy season and transition periods can be great alternatives.
  • What Clothes Should I bring
    We recommend that you pack one T-shirt/shirt for each day of safari, shorts, lightweight sneakers, a cap with a wide brim or visor, a long-sleeved shirt, lightweight pants, and a swimsuit for the hotel pool. It’s also a good idea to bring a hoodie/warm sweater/light jacket because at night temperatures in the highlands (for example, in Ngorongoro) can drop to 0°C (32°F). You should also bring sunglasses, a buff or neck scarf, and sunscreen. Read about what else you might need on a safari trip in this article , where we have provided all the details.
  • Can you Bring Kids on a Safari Trip?
    You can go on a safari as a family. There is no age limit for visiting the national parks of Tanzania. Children will enjoy observing the animals from the safari car and learning interesting facts about them from the guide. Safety is guaranteed by Altezza Travel’s professionalism and high standards. Parents often bring their kids on our safari tours, and we are happy to welcome guests with children. The young travelers themselves are always left with bright and joyful impressions. For families with several young children, it may be very important to spend nights in large family rooms or interconnected rooms. This type of accommodation is quite rare in hotels and tented lodges in safari areas. If you prefer family-room accommodation, we highly recommend booking your safari as early as possible - at least 6-12 months in advance.
