It is easy to see why Tanzania is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Africa. Home to the ‘Big 5’, antelopes, zebras, crocodiles and wildebeest, Tanzania rains one of the best wildlife safari destinations in the world. What’s more, Tanzania also boasts the biggest free-standing mountain in African; Mount Kilimanjaro.
Whether you are embarking on a life-changing hike to the snow-capped summit of Kilimanjaro, experiencing the spine-tingling wildebeest migration that roars through the Serengeti Plains, staring into the clearest star-strewn skies that soar high above the untouched wilderness of the Ngorongoro Crater, or relaxing on the pearl white beaches in Zanzibar while fully immersing yourself in the local culture; Tanzania offers endless opportunities for adventure.

Tanzania's peak season is from June to September. These months are the best time to see wildlife, however, please note that it gets very busy with tourists and prices are higher.
The low season is between March to May. This is mainly due to the fact that there is a lot of heavy rainfall.
If you are planning to climb Kilimanjaro, June is a best time, with decent weather and fewer crowds than the summer months.
Passports and Visas are the responsibility of the individual traveller.

Malaria precaution is also essential, so we suggest you consult your GP on which Malaria tablets to take.
If you are climbing Kilimanjaro you may experience Altitude sickness. It has nothing to do with experience, fitness levels or age and can affect everyone differently.
Some of the routes are longer than others and will give you more time to acclimatise. If you have struggled with altitude sickness before we definitely suggest taking one of the longer options.
Travel insurance is mandatory for all our trips so please ensure you show evidence of your policy before travelling.
We recommend that you carry a First Aid kit and hand sanitisers / antibacterial wipes as well as any personal medical requirements.
