Experience Tanzania

Book an unforgettable safari with Great Image Expedition in Tanzania, home to some of the world’s most renowned safari destinations.

For many years, safari has been a way of life in Tanzania, a country renowned for its world-class game parks. The Serengeti draws visitors from around the globe, eager to witness the awe-inspiring Great Migration. Nearby, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area boasts an extraordinary array of predators. Further south, Ruaha National Park offers untamed, exhilarating game viewing in a breathtaking landscape. Complementing these experiences are the exotic island of Zanzibar, Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, and the lush, jungle-clad shores of Lake Victoria, making Tanzania one of the most vibrant and diverse countries in Africa.

Why Experience Tanzania ?

Luxurious and secluded wilderness retreats.

Great Image Expedition operates Safaris across Tanzania, such as Serengeti, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and Tarangire, Ruaha, and Nyerere National Parks. Our packages offer exceptional game viewing, unmatched hospitality, and a variety of activities to ensure a fully immersive safari experience.

Combine a safari adventure with a relaxing beach holiday.

The tropical beaches, turquoise waters, and vibrant coral reefs of Zanzibar Island offer a stark contrast to the safari experience. Affordable and brief internal flights make it easy and budget-friendly to extend your safari adventure with some beachside relaxation.

Experience the awe-inspiring Great Wildebeest Migration.

Every year, two million wildebeest and zebra travel 1800 miles from Tanzania's Ngorongoro Conservation Area, through the Serengeti into Kenya's Maasai Mara, and back again. It's hailed as the greatest wildlife show on earth.

Incorporate Kenya into your travel plans effortlessly.

Tanzania's Serengeti and Kenya's Masai Mara are contiguous and travel between the two protected areas is straightforward with fly-in itineraries. Flying eliminates the need for long road transfers, meaning you spend more time on safari!

Enjoy outstanding game viewing throughout the entire year.

The Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation Area boast some of the most abundant wildlife viewing opportunities on the continent, largely due to the phenomenon of the Great Migration. Coupled with the expansive savanna plains and temperate climate, wildlife observation remains exceptional throughout the year, including during the green season.

Explore the wonders of the Ngorongoro Crater.

The Ngorongoro Crater boasts some of the most abundant wildlife sightings on the continent. Its mineral-rich floor, carpeted with nourishing grass, forms an idyllic habitat for a diverse array of herbivores and carnivores alike. Beyond the confines of the crater, the conservation area grants access to other natural wonders such as the Empakaai Crater and Olmoti volcano.

Experience Tanzania Destinations

Travelling encompasses more than merely the destinations you explore; it embraces encounters with people, interactions with wildlife, immersion in history, and the thrill of embarking on novel experiences. With the Great Image Expedition, you’ll traverse by car, foot, boat, or air, unveiling a plethora of new encounters and discoveries.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a must-visit destination in Tanzania. It boasts the world’s largest inactive volcanic caldera, formed some 2 to 3 million years ago. Spanning 30,000 hectares, the crater is home to approximately 25,000 large animals, including lions, black rhinos, elephants, and giraffes, offering an unparalleled safari experience. Its UNESCO World Heritage Site designation and listing as an International Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO’s Man and Biosphere Reserve Programme reflect the harmonious coexistence between wildlife and humans within the area.

Highlights:

  • The Ngorongoro Crater, one of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders, offers some of the continent’s richest wildlife viewing.
  • From December to March, the Great Migration brings wildebeest to the southern Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation Area for calving season.
  • Hike the Olmoti volcano, visit flamingos at Empakaai Crater Lake or explore Maasai culture in a Ngorongoro village.
  • The conservation area encompasses archaeological and palaeontological sites at Oldupai Gorge and early human footprints found at Alaitole in the Ngarusi region.

Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti hosts the world’s largest concentration of wildlife and is the stage for one of Earth’s most incredible spectacles – the Great Migration. Over a million wildebeest embark on an ancient route searching for grazing pastures and water. Their journey takes them across Kenya’s Masai Mara, south into Tanzania’s Serengeti, and towards the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater before circling clockwise back to the Masai Mara. Along the way, thousands fall prey to predators while thousands more are born, replenishing their numbers and sustaining the circle of life.

Highlights:

  • The Serengeti hosts the Great Migration from December to October each year, where 1.5 million wildebeest traverse the plains. The herds gather in the south between December and March for the calving season. From July to October, they head north, culminating in the dramatic Mara River crossing.
  • Apart from the awe-inspiring migration herds, the Serengeti draws visitors seeking encounters with the iconic Big 5 – lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, and buffaloes. Additionally, it’s a hotspot for observing other apex predators like cheetahs, spotted hyenas, and wild dogs.
  • The Serengeti offers more than game drives; visitors can also enjoy a range of activities, like walking safaris and hot air balloon flights.

Tarangire National Park

In Northern Tanzania, Tarangire National Park is a serene oasis renowned for its enchanting elephant migration, vibrant birdlife, and tranquil safari ambience. This seasonal gem, particularly vibrant from July to October, offers a distinctive safari experience, perfect for wildlife enthusiasts seeking an authentic encounter with nature. Elephants, a hallmark of Tarangire, grace the landscape year-round, ensuring unforgettable sightings. Moreover, the park’s verdant swamps host an impressive array of 550 bird species, making it a haven for birdwatchers, boasting the highest concentration of breeding species in a single habitat globally.

Ruaha National Park

Ruaha National Park boasts an untouched wilderness, blending superb wildlife sightings with breathtaking vistas. Its pristine ecosystem offers a more intimate and genuine safari experience than the bustling Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Vital lifelines like the Great Ruaha River and the Mwagusi, Jongomero, and Mzombe Rivers sustain wildlife through the dry spells. Creatures like Waterbuck, impala, and Grant’s gazelle brave the journey for water, navigating the problematic banks where lions, leopards, cheetahs, jackals, hyenas, and the elusive African wild dogs wait.

Nyerere National Park

Nyerere National Park, situated in southern Tanzania, was formerly part of the expansive Selous Game Reserve. Encompassing a vast area of 54,600 square kilometers since 1940, it gained UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 1982. In 2019, approximately 30,000 square kilometers were redefined and renamed Nyerere National Park, paying homage to Tanzania’s inaugural president, Julius Nyerere, renowned for his conservation efforts. Second only to Namib Park in Namibia in size, this park epitomizes wilderness and remoteness. Its rivers and lakes, vital lifelines, teem with an incredible array of wildlife, boasting Africa’s largest populations of elephants and wild dogs.

Covered 80% by dense tropical forest, it serves as a sanctuary for diverse wildlife. Birdwatchers will find over 400 species of resident and migratory birds. The island’s forests are home to elephants and giraffes, while sitatunga antelope inhabit the papyrus swamps, and crocodiles and hippos reside in the lake. The opportunity for chimpanzee trekking, along with the island’s remoteness and exclusivity, makes Rubondo a highly desirable safari destination.
