Tanzanian Safaris with STT
Safari Tours Tanzania (STT) has developed an unique programme of tours that transposes our love of adventure and our unique perspective on the outdoors, into the incomparable domain of some of the most dramatic and adventurous safari venues in the world; the national parks and conserved areas of northern Tanzania, and the renowned wildlife regions of Kenya.
Our clients are invited to choose from an array of unique and unforgettable tours that include Africa’s best safari parks:
- watching lions hunt over the endless plains of the Serengeti through which the famous wildebeest migration passes into Kenya’s Masai Mara;
- sighting the rare Black Rhino in the ‘Lost World’ of the Ngorongoro Crater floor;
- experiencing the thrill of a close encounter with the giraffe and elephants of Lake Manyara and Tarangire;
- hunting with the Hadzabe, the authentic Bushmen of Lake Eyasi who still rely on these ancient techniques to subsist;
- spending time with the families of Maasai tribes people and learning about their fascinating culture in remote villages that very few visit.
Planning the Best Safaris in Tanzania
We are sensitive to the fact that there’s a great deal to take in and research when planning a Tanzania safari holiday, and visitors will probably be concerned that in opting to visit a handful of parks or areas that they like the sound of or have heard or read good things about, they should not be missing out on other areas that a better-
Private Safari Tours in Tanzania
The majority of STT’s safari packages are operated on a private safari basis where say, a couple, a close group of friends, or families will prefer to travel independently of anyone they do not already know. Since our tours are priced per person on a sliding scale that reduces as the number of subscribers increases, readers should be aware that the quoted prices are essentially all to be understood as being per person for passengers in a private 4 x 4.
Open Group Safaris
Occasionally, we are approached by solo travellers or two friends that are willing to forge new friendships and travel with people they do not already know, in the interests of having a more varied experience and in reducing costs. Those keen to join a group or try to form one of their own, are invited to advertise their intentions on Team Kilimanjaro’s Facebook site.
Classic Game Viewing
The traditional objective of safari tours is game viewing, and while we are certainly seeing a clear increase in the number of visitors who want to get out of their vehicles and have some direct and active interaction with their environment and the indigenous culture, still, the majority on safari probably expect wildlife viewing to constitute the main element of their trip. With such a goal in mind, Tanzania is probably second to none throughout the world, with a reliable population of lions throughout the Serengeti, and very accessibly, in the Ngorongoro Crater; relatively vast numbers of elephant in Tarangire, which – especially in the dry season when they are attracted to the main waterways – are much easier to find than in most other wildlife areas; and, in short, one of the densest and most accessible populations of large animals to be found anywhere on earth.
Active & Cultural Adventures
For those who enjoy game viewing and want to see the Big Five but who prefer not to remain in vehicles and choose to interact directly with the African environment and it’s inhabitants, we offer a series of thoroughly enjoyable and varied itineraries that –
The Best Places to Travel in Tanzania
While not strictly fitting the usual description of ‘a safari’, although the word simply means ‘journey’ in Swahili, many considering a visit to Tanzania would likely be very disappointed in retrospect, not to have tried to feature the following items on their Tanzanian holiday!
We work very closely with Team Kilimanjaro, the best tour operator on Kilimanjaro. Guests wanting to go on safari and climb Kilimanjaro are eligible for certain discounts if taking advantage of our close working relationship with TK and booking both events together, so please mention the fact that you are considering a safari with us should you choose to get in touch with TK. Similarly, if you’re planning to book a safari with us and are also considering climbing Kilimanjaro, please let us know so that we can ensure a seamless transition between the phases of your holiday, as well as helping you to benefit from the combined booking discount.
Whether you’ve climbed Kilimanjaro before your safari, or are just wanting to wind down after the dust of the safari circuit, a great many safari-goers choose to go to Zanzibar afterwards, or – what’s a more recent trend – to the east coast of Tanzania, where there are fewer crowds and a more private, customised feel is possible. If you’re interested in spending time on some of the world’s best beaches we warmly encourage you to peruse the site of our partners, Zanzibar Island Hotels. They can arrange bookings at all Zanzibar Hotels, as well as diving, excursions and transfers anywhere on the island.
