Clothing should also be light, loose-fitting, and breathable. Hats and sunscreen are highly recommended, as well as comfortable walking shoes for those long nature walks.

What is the best time for a safari in Tanzania?
The best time to take a Tanzania Safari depends on the type of experience you are looking for.
If you want to avoid crowds and witness the Great Migration, June-October is typically the best time to go. This is when hundreds of thousands of animals migrate across Serengeti National Park in search of greener pastures.
For those looking for a more relaxed experience, December-February is the best time to go. Temperatures are cooler, and there are fewer crowds.
How many days do you need for a Tanzania safari?
The amount of time needed for a Tanzania Safari depends on the type of experience you are looking for.
If you’re looking for a quick weekend getaway, 3-5 days is usually enough to get a good taste of what the country offers. But if you really want to take in all the sights and sounds of Tanzania, a safari of 7-14 days is recommended.
Please take a look at our blog for a further breakdown of how many days you should spend on a Tanzania Safari.
Is there a minimum age limit for a safari in Tanzania?
Bringing your kids on a safari can be a life-changing experience for them, and we have had the most positive reviews from families who shared the adventure with their children.
While our minimum age limit is three years of age, we recommend that our safaris are best enjoyed by children aged six and up. That said, every child is different, and some may find the long days and early starts a bit much. Chat with us beforehand so we can help you decide on the best safari to suit your family’s needs and requirements.
What languages are spoken in Tanzania?
The most commonly spoken language in Tanzania is Swahili. English is also widely spoken, especially around tourist areas and hotels. It’s a good idea to learn some basic words of Swahili for your safari as it will help you communicate with locals.
Most tour guides will be able to speak both English and Swahili, which will make it easier for you to communicate your needs and ask questions.
In addition to these two languages, there are a variety of other dialects spoken in Tanzania, including Arabic and various tribal languages. It’s best to inquire with your tour guide or hotel staff if you need assistance with communication.
Is Tanzania a good birding destination?
Absolutely! Tanzania is an excellent destination for birders of all levels. There are several national parks and reserves where you can observe many species of birds in their natural habitats.
You could spot some spectacular birds, such as the Grey Crowned Crane, Lilac Breasted Roller, Palm Nut Vulture, and the African Fish Eagle.
In addition to the national parks, there are also a number of coastal sanctuaries and wetlands where you can spot a wide variety of birds. The Serengeti National Park is considered one of the best birding spots in Tanzania, with over 500 species recorded.
For serious birders, we recommend booking a tour or guide with an experienced bird specialist who can help you find the best spots and identify rare birds.
Where to see the wildebeest migration?
The wildebeest migration is one of the most spectacular natural events in the world. Thousands of wildebeest, zebra, and other animals migrate from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara in Kenya every year in search of better grazing grounds.
The best place to witness this awe-inspiring event is in the Serengeti National Park. Here you can experience an up-close encounter with the migrating herds and possibly even spot a few predators like lions and wild dogs, which hunt them as they cross.
How long is the wildebeest migration?
The wildebeest migration usually takes place between the months of June and September. The exact timing of the migration varies every year. Still, it typically follows a northwards-southwards pattern from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Masai Mara in Kenya and back again.
It’s important to note that the wildebeest migration does not occur in one continuous movement. The herds will stop and graze for weeks before continuing on their journey, so it’s best to plan your safari accordingly if you want to ensure that you witness this amazing event.
When is the best time to go on a migration safari in Tanzania?
The best time to go on a migration safari in Tanzania is between June and October. This is when the wildebeest migrate from their calving grounds in the Serengeti National Park to the Masai Mara in Kenya, following the rains and lush grasslands.
During this period, you will also be able to witness the great predators such as lions, cheetahs, and wild dogs hunting the migrating herds.
The best way to experience the migration is to book a safari tour with an experienced local guide who can take you to the best spots for game viewing. This will ensure that your trip is safe and enjoyable while providing you with unbeatable access to the Serengeti’s wildlife.
