Frequently Asked Questions
We know that treveling to Africa, especially if it is your first time you might have plenty of questions. We have tried to answer as many of them as possible.
All about Tanzania (6)
Safari in Swahili, the language of East Africa, simply means “journey”. Today, the word is synonymous with a wildlife viewing adventure in the African bush.
If your primary reason of traveling to Africa is to experience an abundance of African wildlife in unspoiled wilderness, then Tanzania should be your destination of choice. Tanzania protects over 30% of its land through national parks and reserves, more than any other country on the continent. You simply cannot beat the wildlife concentrations found in Tanzania.
The parks and wildlife reserves of Tanzania are inhabited by vast herds of wildebeest spread out across the Serengeti savannah, huge populations of elephant and giraffe, as well as herds of plains game and along with their predators. All these animals interact and roam freely, the same as they have for thousands of years in their native habitat. Here you’ll witness an incredible diversity of ecology and will find the tropical vegetation and vast array of bird life as fascinating as the big game.
Tanzania is home to 90% of the film series produced on African animals. Tanzania also boasts a remarkable number of World Heritage Sites including the Serengeti National Park, Kilimanjaro National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation area, Selous Game Reserve (this reserve is the size of Denmark) and the KilwaKisiwani and the SongoMnara Ruins.
Most people have heard of the vast plains of the Serengeti, which hosts the annual migration of wildebeest and the predators that follow in its wake. In addition, the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater is famous for its wide array of wildlife dwelling on the crater floor. Tanzania offers other less famous but equally beautiful national parks depending on your specific interests and we will work with you to optimize your itinerary so that your experience is unforgettable.
Fresh vegetables, seafood and meats make it an exceptional culinary experience. Overall the food is excellent and you will find a good mix of international cuisine, African, Indian and European. All types of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks are sold in most international hotels/lodges. DO NOT drink tap water, bottled water is preferred and caps should be removed at the table.
Prices of beverages (depends on hotel/location):
Bottled water 1.5ltrl: 1 – 2 US$
Soft drinks: 1 US$
Beer: 1.5 – 2.5 US$
Glass of wine: 3 – 4US$
Most of East Africa is savannah, comparable to the high plateau, semi-desert areas of Colorado or New Mexico in the US. Altitude ranges from 3,000 to 7,000 feet (Kilimanjaro climbers will experience much higher altitudes). Temperatures during the day range from 75 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Nights are cool with temperature dipping as low as 40 in some areas for example: the Ngorongoro Crater.
Even though you will be traveling near the equator, please take our clothing recommendation seriously and bring a light jacket/ sweatshirt, sweater, and a fleece pullover for the temperature drops at night and bring something warm to sleep in at night. Humidity is low. The islands experience tropical weather and are generally hot/ humid during the day and warm at night, except during the rainy season when it is cool (but not cold).
Late March – late May: is traditionally the long rainy season. This period is considered the “winter period” in Tanzania.
June – late October: is the dry season, June, July and August can be very cold on the rim of Ngorongoro Crater. The islands are lovely at this time of the year; the evenings are cool (not cold) and the day time hot.
Late October – mid December: is when the short rains occur. This tends to be in the form of a daily thunderstorm. The Ngorongoro Crater rim has a wonderful climate at this time of year. The Serengeti and Lake Manyara are very warm and the Islands are very hot.
Mid December – March: is summer weather. It is dry and very warm until March. Due to its altitude Ngorongoro Crater is much cooler than elsewhere.
It is better to book as far in advance as possible to ensure availability at the time you wish to travel, especially during the peak seasons (June through August and Christmas time). This is especially important for those wishing to travel on private custom safaris and those adding extensions to the schedules trips.
