Tanzania has numerous national parks and game reserve that have some of the greatest wildlife in the world. Other than the famous Serengeti, Arusha, and Ngorogoro Crater, Tanzania has places like Selous Game Reserve, Ruaha National Park, and Mikumi National Park that offer game viewing that is just as spectacular but also offer a little more privacy with the animals.

Parks are not too crowded and are kept wild, for now.

Spectacular wildlife
Overall rating

I really liked the fascinating wildlife. I've seen places like South Afrika, Botswana and Namibia. To be honest: Kenia and Tanzania tops them all. More wildlife, more big cats, lots of birds. Fantastic. Sleep in a tent on an unfenced campground inside a National Park, being visited by elephants, hyena's, buffalo an lions. What more do you want? Seeing the big five in 1 day. Visited several local communities to see normal life in Kenia and tanzania. Fishing with locals for tilapia. Nice.

Beautiful country, from white-sand beaches to parks & conservations that are ungated and left alone! I spent 12 hours on safari in Southern Africa, on paved roads, and didn't see lions or cheetahs! I spent 3 hours on safari in Tanzania, and saw a pair of cheetahs (and recorded their sweet cry to one another), lions, ostrich mating dance, a gazelle 20 feet up in a tree (killed and dragged up there by a leopard!) and a lion kill!!! We almost saw the full circle of life! Now if we could just see a birth!

My African Dream (if you can forget the Africa of today)
Overall rating

We travelled as a family of five- and we did enjoy all of the trip. Went from Arusha through Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Kainokaoa, Serengeti to Mwanza and across Lake Viktoria. Went down to Lake Tanganjika, crossed it to the south on the MS Liemba. Stayed at Lake Shore Lodge near Kipili and made our excursions to Katavi from there. Staying there was just a dream, best place ever we have been to. Made a long way home from there to Daressalam and Europe. We havebeen to Bali, Laos, Thailand, Mauritius and a lot of other places: we never were so sad when we had to go home as we were after our trip to Tanzania. These things said one more thing: please consider ecological and social aspects when chosing your tour operators; ask your european travel agent to ask their african partners! We still feel a bit ashamed that we did not do that enough-and we realized that we should have done so only during our trip. Should you go to Tanzania? YES! Go! All the best.

This was I believe a less touristy destination, but I cannot compare as this was the only safari we had been on

I have only been to Tanzania, Namibia and Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, and of the three, Tanzania wins hands down for wildlife. However, if you're into the dunes in the Namib Desert and shopping in some of the cities, then Namibia will be right up your alley. We only went to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe so we didn't see enough for me to comment about it.

This was my only safari so it is difficult to compare; but I felt it was a trip of a lifetime.

Tanzania takes your breath away
Overall rating

From the moment our guide collected us at Kilimanjaro airport, we knew we were in for a holiday experience of a lifetime.
Our guide's knowledge of his country, its history and of course, his knowledge of the parks and wildlife we encountered, was first class.
We spent seven days traveling starting at Arusha, through to Lake Manyara and then on to the Ngorongoro crater and through to the Serengeti. Everyday and every park brought a new experience and a new encounter...my first view of the Ngorongoro crater is one I will remember forever, as was seeing the wildebeast migration in the Serengeti ...both occasions brought a lump to my throat!
Scenically the parks we visited were all very different and if you're traveling to Tanzania I would recommend you take in as many parks as possible so you really feel you're experiencing everything this country has to offer.
All the camps we stayed at were of a very high standard, good food, clean rooms, battery charging facilities etc etc and the country seems to have a very good infrastructure in place - good main roads / airports.
We were spoilt when it came to wildlife, encountering the Big Five on numerous occasions and it's something I could never tire of.
We've had safaris in Kenya on many occasions but our time in Tanzania was way and above what we'd experienced in Kenya. We had very high expectations for the holiday and it delivered way and above on every level.
