The Excitement and Thrill of a Tanzania Safari

Sometimes it's good to have a break. Getting away from your normal routine can reinvigorate you, taking you from the stresses and strains of everyday life and letting you take a deep breath and recharge you batteries. It gives you a perspective on your life, letting you return with renewed enthusiasm and energy. Many of our clients tell us that a safari in Tanzania it the perfect break, the change to get totally away and experience and new and completely different pace of life. There is anticipation, excitement, relaxation and fulfillment. 

Getting Close to Nature
 
Our lives can be very complicated, a tangle of home, work and play to be juggled and balanced. On a Tanzania safari holiday your life is simple. Everything is laid on for you, being met at the airport upon your arrival by a private guide with your own private vehicle who will stay with you for the duration of your trip. The lodges and camps will have been selected with your requirements and interests in mind, luxurious retreats offering superb service and a high level of comfort. While on safari you are on full board so you are not constantly looking for restaurants and paying bills. You can relax 

 The Beauty of Nature
 
On top of this you have the wildlife. On a Tanzania safari you will visit the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park, amongst others, and witness nature at its most beautiful and raw. Here the animals quest is simply to eat, moving to new grazing or stalking their next meal. It is to procreate, the dominant males always alert to drive off rivals who threaten then. It is live living as it has done so for millions of years, before our lives got so busy, and a reminder that however complicated our lives are, its important to occasionally slow down, take a deep breath and remember what is important to us in our lives.

How To Get the Most Out Of Your Safari Holiday

The prospect of going on a safari should be one of excitement and anticipation. Its the chance to leave your normal life behind and experience nature at its most pure; a daily battle to survive played out against the beautiful backdrop of an unchanged Africa. You might want to trek through cloud forest in search of mountain gorilla, watch the spectacle of over one million wildebeests and zebras on the Great Migration or enjoy the varied and colourful birdlife that proliferates across the continent. Everybody wants to see the Big Five: lions, leopards, rhino, elephants and the cape Buffalo but there is so much more to experience as well.

Tanzania SafariWhere to stay: Safari lodges or luxury camps?
As well as the flora and fauna there are the landscapes to consider and where you want to stay. On a Tanzania safari holiday you can witness Kilimanjaro at dawn, gaze down into the Ngorongoro Crater or travel across the rolling plains of the Serengeti. You can choose to stay in beautifully positioned lodges, boasting long views and excellent service, or one of the atmospheric permanent camps where you can dine out under the stays before returning to your luxury tent complete with teak floor, four-poster bed and en suite bathroom. Sleeping under canvas allows you to listen to the sounds of the African night when the animals are at their most active, often hearing lions call and the sound of hippos as they graze the grass.
