Tanzania is synonymous to the idea of quality game drives and safari experiences. This reputation doesn’t come without reason as the country is indeed one of the best places to visit if you’re interested in the country’s wildlife. Notably, it boasts of the famed Serengeti National Park and during the right season, this is where you’ll get to witness the majestic sight of the great wildebeest migration. Imagine millions of these beasts moving in unison, accompanied by other plain animals like herds of zebras and Thomson gazelles. This natural phenomenon is definitely not something to be missed.
If you’re after a game drive that is a little different from the usual at the many national parks in the country, why not try the Ngorongoro Crater. As the largest inactive caldera, it is home to an astonishing number of wildlife species set against spectacular landscapes. Feel that witnessing these wildlife scenes isn’t a sufficient reason to justify your trip here? Tanzania is also home to fascinating tribes that still retain age-old traditions. Venture into their villages and be immersed in their local customs, following veteran hunters out on actual hunts using arrows dipped in poison – doesn’t this sound like something out of a movie?
