Tanzania is a stable country with a population of about 47.6 million, and a third of the country is protected for its wildlife, meaning that it is one of the best countries in African to go on a Safari Adventure. For those who have yet to go on a safari, the experience is like nothing else you’ve had, and, therefore, needs to be on your bucket list. Choose Tanzania safaris that not only provide you with catered experiences but also give back to their community. For the best experience, use a tour that is open to itinerary suggestions and willing to stop so you can take photographs.
- It’s Unlike Anything You’ve Experience Before
For many westerners, going on an African safari is unlike anything that you’ve experienced before. Not only does a safari give you the opportunity to see some of the most famous mammals in the animal kingdom, but it also gives you a tour throughout the beautiful landscapes that Tanzania has to offer.
- You could witness one of the “Big Five”
These are the celebrities of the animal kingdom. Bear witness to elephants, buffalo, lions, leopards, or rhinos in their natural habitat. Please remember to be respectful of these animals, however, and to stay inside the vehicle and listen to your guide’s instructions at all times. It is very unlikely that anything will happen, but it is always better to be safe than sorry. These mammals need to be respected; you are in their home, after all.
- You could see the Great Wildebeest Migration
One of the greatest sites on earth is to watch 1.5 million wildebeests migrate. It’s an event that occurs every year. It is the largest terrestrial mammal movement in the world, and for many wildlife photographers and filmmakers, it is their top choice. They trek a thousand kilometers and around a quarter of a million of them will die along the way. Tanzania (and Kenya) are the only places in the world where you can even see this great migration, as most wildebeests in Africa are non-migratory. A Tanzanian safari is the only way to truly experience this feat.
- Poachers Threaten the Wild
Poachers threaten these wilds every day, so when you visit be sure to not geo-locate the locations of these animals, as it could put them in danger. Increased tourism to these regions for safaris (please use responsible tour companies) could protect the wildlife by giving more incentives for the government to protect the area and its inhabitants. Ensure that you do not leave behind any trace of your visit.
Tanzania is a beautiful country with a lot to do and explore. The safari is just one of the many exciting experiences, however, it is certainly one that you absolutely must have on your bucket list! See the beautiful landscapes and meet some unforgettable new friends. See some truly unique and unforgettable moments. Have the time of your life. Visit Tanzania!
